They’ve just stepped out to assist with war setup, etc for an hour.
Nobody is stepping in for an hour, you really do not now what you are talking about.
Again the only reason family alliance come help each other is because a player left and they did not find a replacement for him.
In addition Family alliances are a minor minority and they should be taken into account.
“Actually, they do. The family alliances are the reason we can leave our alliance after war matching is done. As long as we return before the start of war we don’t get kicked out of war or lose war chest loot.”
Untrue, and lan487 is right - “Alliance families are a player made thing, not a SG feature so I don’t imagine SG acknowledges their existence or consider them when making decisions.”
I do not know why you say they are apart of SG features.
“Many go to another alliance in their family to help train or do war prep. No recruiting or finding ‘else’ (sorry, not sure what you meant here). I know some do go out to recruit, but I’m not sure how that is hurting their alliance. They’re trying to bring in more players and the player that left comes back to the alliance as well.”
What are you talking about? Have you ever being to a family alliance? that is not what is happening there
