During this round, a vote be held for which alliances of days gone by players would like to see return. As a result of that poll, players could then submit themselves as potential new leaders of the old-school, now non-existent, alliances of the past that are voted in say the top 5? Further votes/polls could then be held to decide leaders of those alliances next round, giving players the opportunity to join an alliance of their choosing with a publicly popular leader?
lf someone from Staff is happy to, maybe they could manage the creation of threads for players to submit themselves as potential leaders (or it could be done by PM), plus they could create the resulting polls?
Just thinking it could provide some diversity for next round, not to mention some opportunity for the good ol' days to be relived - even if just for one round!
If this process could be completed by 1 month before the end of this round, those elected as leaders would have time to prepare and recruit for the next round. I would also suggest that all registered players be emailed by Luke at the reset, with that email including the fact that old-school alliances have been reformed, hopefully with the effect of attracting vets who have left the game.
Note: Despite my insistence to the contrary on the helpdesk, this is now officially my last discussion starting post that attempts to generate discussion for the good of the game.
