so many low-level players are creating alliances now. this is BAD for the game as they are suckering other noobs in to their alliances and none of them know what they are doing. many players give up on the game as it gets frustrating without the right leadership around you.
I would suggest raising the minimum level to CREATE an alliance. allow them join one at level 4. hopefully learn the game better. and THEN go on to create one.
