    this is my suggestion i think you should make it like call of duty games....... (the clans) like have a 4 letter clan tag and if ur in an alliance u can have one if ur not u cant so people can look more like a alliance together with the same tag* and make it a pop out could like yellow or red, some coule that you do not use in the game that often so u can easily see it and and make it so to join a alliance you have to summit a application about ur highest ships and ur lvl or fvf wins/losses and stuff like that and you (kixeye) should make a separate page *not on fb* but like something that corresponds with battle pirates so that when you get accepted the *show clan tag* option becomes available in you outpost (like relocate) or a side app (like messages) so that it is easily accessible from battle pirates. and i suggest that the maximum for a alliance should be 20 or so because after that basically every one could just join it and they would just accept every one and then it would become a mess. so i hope you take my idea into consideration
    Thanks,
    Gregory

    I'm not in an alliance because I've been waiting for the in-game alliance system. It's a point to consider... how many people are willing to lead an in-game alliance, and how many want to be in an in-game alliance. Those numbers are as important as the sizes of the current alliances.

    And inevitably, there will be some alliances that will be capped and still have more people wanting to join. It's true in pretty much every game, as far as I can tell.

    Quick modification to the poll. Thanks folks.

    So does that mean we can vote again? Which side did my vote go under? 21-40 or 41-60 since I voted for 40............

    I voted for 100+. I find alliance capping to be redundant. When there's an alliance cap groups with tons of people are just going to start another alliance with the same name with a numerical value of 2 and etc afterwards. I think it'd make more sense just to leave it open. I know this idea might not be popular, but I'd rather it be open than have 20 alliances with the same name just a number after there name.

    I think 50 would be a good easy number just like other games and then you can buy something or pay 100 coins or something to add another 5 or 10 members

    i actually belong to 4 different alliances and the size varies, one has 40, one has 65, one has 106, and the last 140.

    On a side note, have you taken into account players like me who belong to multiple groups and will there be the ability to be in more then one alliance at the same time? And will there be an ability to set another alliance as an ally rather then an enemy?

    I'd be interested to know if we will have to register our alliance with bp names in order to be able to participate in 'alliance wars"?

    This is something I can raise if many players are in more than once Alliance.

    LOL, being in more than one alliance...now THERE'S commitment for ya! :P

    Membership rolls swell and ebb, depending on a number of obvious factors,
    the chief one being climate...in winter more people stay indoors & play more
    often...followed by football or hunting season...& further, based on age...

    Maybe the real question, that should be asked, is:
    "On average, how many people do you count as active alliance members?"

    Then add +10% so nobody feels left out...

    let the 21-40 devide into two alliances .. better to give a chance to small alliances
    "13 skilled players with 7 rookie players" alliance is better than "25 skilled players with 15 rookie players" alliance

    I'm not in an alliance as of now because there is no game mechanic to justify doing so. I fight for friends, some strangers, and against everyone else. I am looking forward to the alliance feature though and will consider joining an alliance when it is introduced.

    Greetings Captains,

    The team is working on determining the initial size for Alliances when it’s released and they are looking for active player feedback on current Alliance sizing. We’ve set up a poll so that the team can get a good gauge on average Alliance membership.

    Thanks!
    The alliance I'm in is only about 25 members, this helps keep things more organized then a 100+ member alliance where it would be difficult to stay in touch with all the members.

    Maybe it was already mentioned but this poll doesn't help you. You might have all the members from the 1-20 voting and making it look like there are alot of alliances in that division and only 1 person each vote from 100+ alliances and it look like their are few of them. Why don't you all start a site/page that allows teams to register with a name and number of members and keep it visible so that you don't get duplicates and get your polling info that way? Just an idea.
    Nobody has said that all players are (or should be) equal. By very definition, a player that is a level 33 is NOT equal to a player that is level 32.

    Not in one, never will be. Funny thread though reading how many people are actually in multiple alliances. What if there alliance battle feature and two of your alliances are against each other?

    I hope you're thinking towards the long term. 50 to 100 is a good size (leaning towards 100). Not everyone in an alliance is going to be active at all times and some one needs to manage that (not you kixeye). Room is needed for that as time is needed to work through issues. In other words, inactive players may need to be retained in an alliance until it is clear what to do with them. Look at other games and how alliances build, grow, split, downsize, etc. 100 is a good size. Don't screw it up.

    There may be big groups but only 25% are probably the core of the group. Sail with each other take over sectors etc

    Every game y'all ripped off to make this one has 100 member alliances, when it goes over 100 they make "insert alliance name here" #2 for recruits. The key is not being able to be in more than one if being in one offers any benefits to gameplay whatsoever
