I want a section for them all at portal
and also more seen via columns, active forum debates and so on.
First of all I had this written almost ready for once already and I lost all the data due internet fall. So I will cut down a bit on details and so on….
Alliances at portal:
Alliances play an important role bringing new players to the game and educating them, so PA team should work on keeping them happy and make it as user friendly for them as possible and so ensure the games future. Basic information what alliances are and why they exists should be readable on this section also.
Alliances need to be seen straight from the portal
and there should be own section for them entirely.
Alliances do need an advertisement place on portal
to tell about them and why not add some graphix too. When they are seen on visible public places, it does help the recruiting job of theirs. Also it’s a good thing to let newcomers know about the active community behind this game.
PA team could consider to offer hosting space, PA mail accounts to leaders of alliances
, they could even consider coding and publicing some basic outer tools to use. Not every alliance has technical wizards to help them. This way we get more organized alliances out there resulting in better competition. Also it would be easier for any voluntary leaders to step up. There could be download place, where are collected other tools and codes that the community is ready to share and make public for others use also.
Users could be able to comment about alliances, they could make columns, there could be also rankings based on past results and current round to keep game competitive, all want to see their name on top of rankings that’s for sure.
There could be rankings from old data and polls:
ie. Most steady alliance
ie. Best ranked alliance
ie. Best recruiting alliance
ie. Most beaten alliance
ie. Best noob trainee alliance
ie. Best roiding alliance
ie. Best XP alliance
ie. Best cov-oping alliance
ie. Best reputation alliance
ie. Most greyed alliance
ie. Most clean alliance
There could be writers from each alliance to post "news from the round" and so get new player see about events and happenings in the universe. Also realise behind the boring text format there is actual life in here, in this game.
Alliances in forums:
Well each alliance could have their own place to post their details, political status, post their toughts about current round. Post their goals and plans for the round. Obviously this would make the forums quite full of pages, hence the current format aint bad either. Just would be nice if everyone posted stuff from their point of view, from small to big alliance and could introduce themselves and their work.
Well ingame alliance tools can be improved all the time, nothing special on my mind right now though.
Yet again we need listing about active alliances ingame and what they offer and require from joiners. We need a way to contact alliances without joining them.
We could have logo/mark u chosen to determine weather u are noob training alliance, aiming for the mid ranks, playing hardcore/for the win, just being a group of friends playing with without any higher goals, if u are a bg or if you are newly formed alliance. This will help again for people to know where they should be joining. Also we could consider making some public reputation of alliance based on will they be fighting alliances on their own scale, weather they take part in politics, weather they act on games good. Perhaps each alliance could vouch eachothers either negatively or positively.
Also alliances should be able to contact each others ingame, either privately or publicly to form naps/alliances/declare wars. Either to inform your members, or make u look like stronger, or allow universe to know you are on war, to not to interfere. This will help everyone to find a fitting fight companion for each round. Option to mark each alliance as allied/friendly/neutral/hostile/war making it easier for each member to follow events and politics of the round. It wouldn’t be only HCs scene. We can consider some bonus from public information and even restrict launching on allied/friendly planets ingame before changing the data again. There could even be a way to propose a merge, which could help new/smaller alliances to find the required forces to enter scenes.
Galaxies at portal:
Well we could consider trying to make budypacks as another steady staying group of people with needs to recruit. Allow each budypack to register name, which under they will be playing. Put galaxies on a plate too to be seen. Here we can add all kind of statistics too. Allow galaxies to be recruiting via portal
. Let them also inform about themselves, their achievements and their goals.
Galaxies at forums:
Well when we increase galaxies importance, make them more known groups of people. We can debate more about them aswell in forums and even open a brand new posting place for galaxy related talk.
Add common projects for galaxies to work with (buy), improve their importance and make them stick more together. Allow galaxies to set formations or strategies effecting their growth and game play. Make ministers worth something. This will also help making people stick together and form something mentioned above. We need people to be hooked on galaxies/alliances and make them feel they belong there and are wanted to stick around in here. We need to improve the aspects of community to make it more alive, which is half as hooking as the game itself.
Individuals at portal:
We should allow each PA user to have a portal
profile, which can be contacted and where is stored once again all kind of data, as , roids stolen, roids lost, made kills, lost units, gained xp, made scans, launched attacks and defence, past ranks (ps. add more statistics like this ingame, they are all fun to read.) People can even perhaps set that they are looking for galaxy/alliance to join. So that they can be contacted by alliances themselfs.
Allow writing of colums and posts and vote on polls.
Individuals at forums:
Well that part is covered enough. We can ofc add a section to debate stuff on more individual level as long as it doesn’t get too offensive. Perhaps a place to lift up some beloved friends that u have liked working with. Real emo and accuse forum.
Well I would like to see the ground troops to get involved ingame to get more wide battle field. We can as we have done support different kind of playing styles and strategies. Allow people to specify to be masters on some field and hence be wanted by the alliances/galaxies. ie like each hockey player has his/her own role. Still you can be a good general player.
You should be able to send taunts and collect friends to your network real facebook style. <3 Even be able to view progress of the new people u invited ingame, via refcode.
Well there are enough debate going about individual level and game improvements, so wont get more far on that.
