Ok so this happened, been in an alliance 265 days. Our war opponent today is scratching their heads when they now look at the board; alliance of 27 is now alliance of 7 and our entire board is filled with “ex-members” because one member must have had a manaic episode. He / She joined about 6 weeks ago, was a strong player, asked for promotion to Elder. He/she was quite competitive and wanted to kick non-titan participants (they were playing their war flags). The general ferl of the group - play for fun, get stronger, win 70% of the time. The new-elder-member just kick every single member off the alliance and then exited.
Cry or laugh it is just insane!!! Just be careful of players wanting control without earning it first in the alliance.
We now looking for string players of 600 or more cups as our kicked members will not know what happened and why they were kicked.
