An enhanced Alliance system is being developed to provide greater incentives for teamwork and organized combat. Alliances will have the ability to set "postures" between one another ranging from Allied to War. Here we will describe the current plan for "War":
An Alliance can choose to instigate a war with one other Alliance once per week. War is a mutual posture meaning that both Alliances are set at "War" with each other when war is declared. The target Alliance has no chance to avoid War although they can sue for peace after it has started. Only the Alliance Leader has control over setting Alliance postures and starting a War.
While an Alliance can start only one War per week they can be the target of other Alliance Wars and so could be participating in multiple Wars.
- Now is the time to suggest ideas to extend the Alliance War feature! We are particularly interested in feedback around the following:
- War bonuses: special bonuses that are generated from combat between warring Alliances.
- Victory Conditions: what factors are used to declare a winner.
- Fair Fights: how to stop large powerful Alliances picking on much lower Alliances.
