Clan Feature Request (in General)
January 7 2010 9:51 PM EST
Dunno if this has been approached before but eh it is worth a try in my book.
I would like to ask for a Clan Alliance setting. Right now this is just on a Honor System but I think this should be put on a higher line as it is starting to get complicated. Clans can make Alliances and as a result cannot attack each other, this of course can be maintained by the Clan Owner with the Click of button/link or adding in a name to a registrar.
It would work in the same way as the "remove non 6-point clan" link/button but would rather be "remove Alliance/Family Clan Members". The only reason I have asked for this feature is that there are several Clan Alliances/Family of Clans going on.
It would be nice to Auto Subtract them rather than piecemeal remove them every time you want to add 6-point clan members to your fight list. Especially if you miss one and accidentally farm them and cause a problem in the Alliance/Family of Clans.
Disclaimer: Yes yes I know there is always a way around this by being meticulous and yada yada. I am being Lazy and asking for a Lazy button get over it :PPP

I am sure if Jon wanted this as a feature, he would have just made clans be able have 10-15 people.
It is interesting that there are allied clans in a game such as this.

My experience with the alliances was mixed. It added a nice twist, but it also added the hassle of removing a lot of juicy targets from my list. Plus, there were occasional problems of accidentally attacking alliance members after editing fight lists.

Ranger: 10-15 players in a clan? Heh all of the biggest and toughest in one clan to rule them all.....nah no fun!
Aside from Alliances there are Families of Clans like Battle Royale and The Knighthood to name a few. You cannot forget the DAS Family of Clans.....lol
Besides sometimes it is in the better interest to not hit or be hit by certain players in certain Clans. It is a benefit all around and can possibly make a better Clan Bonus for all involved in the Alliance.
This is a Facet of CB I just do not see going away any time soon, so why not set up for it?
Demi: Exactly why I proposed this!
I like the idea behind it but it is very much a lazy button. If this were introduced you could however add in proper clan warfare and wars between different alliances.
When i refer to proper clan warfare i mean like you get a bonus for fighting certain clans, penalties for fighting within your clan, perhaps even make bounty targets for alliances to kill that give a money boost to members.
But nonetheless, bring on the lazy button :D

Im with whitewolf...an in-game clan rivalry system would have to accompany such a change.
As it stands the only reason why clans would need to especially fight each other is for the bonus, but it is really very small of a difference at the top
an in-game clan rivalry system would have to accompany such a change.

someone say Alliance Bonus? <.< >.>

Now I agree and disagree.
I like community's that stick together however I don't think that ours is a large enough to support more than 1 or maybe 2 of these alliances, which would create a monopoly.

to add to this however I would agree to a bonus vs your alliance but maybe a 4 (or 3) point bonus from those in your alliance instead of 6 points.

Well AK I can see your point but there is nothing from stopping any number of clans becoming Allies and working together to take the Top Ranks. I would think something like this would shake up the Clan Tiers, even moreso if there was a Bonus attached for being the Top Alliance or some-such. Can you imagine the Clan Wars that would pursue if there was a 15% Clan Bonus and say a 10% Alliance Bonus as well? Woot for Competition!
I like it being user-maintained at the moment. I will reconsider if we start having 100 or 200 alliances competing in the top ranks.

NS how can you possibly/realistically have this with a 200+ Player base?
January 18 2010 5:18 AM EST
I think that is the point right now Zen. We have too small of a player base to really support such a feature.

The Alliance Bonus itself yeah I can see that, the remove Alliance Members from your Fight List I don't. It should not be any harder than not allowing you to fight fellow Clan Members :-/
