    I'm staying Independed When these Alliance start fighting and spending coins like water and than have to play the raid on top of it every month wounder how many will go broke. Enjoy paying Kixeye more money for a broke game as it stands. I'm not giving any more to them.

    Okay it says the leader of the alliance and members roles will be determined by there base level sizes. So what if the person who starts the alliance is a smaller base size then some of the members coming in? Does that said leader then get demoted and the higher base level takes over? That would suck.

    hey something did just ping in my head....

    weren't we pirates at a point? like free people without hierarchy pillaging for private ends?

    ok for some rules, but obligations?
    what's that? a sort of permanent event?

    I'm a bit sceptic now.

    man why r people complaining sheesh mun this feature will change the game and prob evan kill of games like
    evony n kingdoms of camalot
    what has alliance n such n other feature coff this games more fun than watching a clock on troops go down n poof troops gone coff evony n koc any ways
    kixeye could get alot more players in with this feature alone THIS IS THERE AIM along with pleasing us players in the mean time

    means overall more fun in the game and this is needed

    as for ppl saying this seems to complex no it is not it simple to understand all what is going to happen

    the only thing might need to be discusted is alliance numbers i say 40 to 60 start of point maybe we have a building wa say the boss guy chanceller/host what ever kixeye call it has what increses alliance compasity soon it maxed out say 100 the boss can get rid of the building n make it be put on water just an idea other games has this feature with the building it called an embassy

    you think things aren't complex enough as it is?

    The bonuses are the main point that seems to be sticking the boot in. anyone who wishes to remain outside of an alliance is being punished for playing the game their way.

    I'm all for a simple alliance feature, but this point and perk system will change the way the game is played beyond recognition. People play BP because they like it as it is. bolting on more junk to make it look exciting just adds to the list of things that will go wrong.
    Winner - EVERYTHING!

    I really think that adjusting battle mechanics is a mistake. Even if it is limited to "Defender" class players that are essentially low level players. I think it's in Kixeye's interest to keep the alliance feature from being over reaching. Possibly limiting it to bragging rights from alliance wars, tracking alliance points, and other diplomatic settings.

    Add a negative bonus for hitting player's bases that are not in an Alliance.

    CM's, please, please for the love of God, add any comments you make to the top of the thread to avoid repetitive questions and to make more clear, what this change will mean for all.

    Thank you

    Just thinking out loud here but if you have set the defender bracket as levels 24-31 i am assuming there will be a section for attackers that will probably give an increased fire rate to ships as well, lets say for arguments sake the bracket for this is levels 32 to 39. You are also only able to get points for for the alliance by hitting near the same level as yourself. So these different levels are unlikely to interact at level 32 you would be an attacker so are you going to pit yourself against a level 31 with near the same tech as you but with a defence bonus or against another level 32 who will earn you more points anyway and has no defence bonus.

    I can understand you not wanting the lower level to become fodder in an alliance war but i think this will just breed low level players that have an unrealistic view of how good their base is and will get a shock when they no longer have the defensive bonus. Is the fact that you will only earn alliance points for hitting near the same level as yourself not enough to discourage low level farming?

    Most other alliance games i have played usually set a minimum level requirement to join an alliance anyway and surely due to the way the current level system is most people would say once you hit level 40 you can join since everyone above that level is free to hit each other without restriction and maybe have newbie alliances for below level 40 so this means most wont have players in the defenders bracket.

    I honestly think the bonuses over complicates things but if you are insistent upon doing so then it should be down to the alliance leader to appoint bonuses depending on an individuals capabilities that way it means you will need a good leader to assess peoples strengths and weaknesses and they should be able to appoint it to any level player, that way you wouldn't know if you are hitting a defender or another attacker simply based on their level.

    I like the rest of it just not sure how the bonus will work in reality would need more specific details before i can make a fair assessment.

    I know alot want the ability to defend a players base and this would be good but i think there needs to be a limit say 1 defender at a time and maybe a time window after that is destroyed before another one can take over, having to get past an unlimited supply of fleets before being able to get into a base would just kill base attacks.

    Good to know you are working on it.

    There would be a different bonus for that level range.

    lol well no joke maybe i didn't make myself CLEAR let me try this again........ What if my alliance has no players this level range 24 -31 would we there by completely miss the defense bonus or what ever for that range of players? why can't these bonus just be assigned to members of the alliance from the leader or have it jump randomly from person to person........ and my other question how would you even group lvl's 24 - 31 in a defender role? those guys are they one always asking for salvage wtf are they suppose to defend?

    I do not believe this is how the Alliances will function. Leveling up an Alliance will not be based on monetary spending.

    Please, if you can, move any response you make to a quote to the beginning of the thread, or otherwise organize a new one. Else this thread become too polluted and so many key points missed by so many. The repetition will kill too many good points.

    What about those of us who choose not to be in a clan? why are we being discriminated against? or will we get the bonus as well?
