Currently to create an alliance it costs only 50 gems and minimal level of 4 to create one.
With the continued growth of the games population there are now many ghost alliances that are abandoned sitting dormant with players that will never return.
The balance between recruits and the # of alliances seems off.
There are many new players who create an alliance but don’t know the ins and out of the game itself yet.
I propose a gem increase that is both beneficial to the developers and players.
Names at one time were increased from 300 gems to 500 gems.
I believe a player level of 15-18 would allow a player enough time to adequately grow before running an alliance.
At the very least having Alliance creation to match name change at 500 gems would curb the ghost and dormant alliances and give a player a chance to think about creating one.
Spending considerable amount of time recruiting for other alliances in the past,
It seems at times there are now more alliances then recruits.
