Can a leader leave? What happens to the alliance?

What happens when the leader leaves the alliance? Who becomes the leader? I started my alliance 3 years ago and recently merged with another alliance and they are ignoring me and now making their own decisions, most of which are good but every time I make a comment or call someone out for not following our (original alliance) few rules, one or other of them shouts me down! I am feeling pushed out. I am not bossy or nasty. I just want to play the game. Comments and advice please. I am getting really frustrated and disheartened with my alliance and don’t want to play any more.

Pick who you think will be a good replacement, promote them and move on. Plenty of other alliances out there looking for players.

Being a leader is over rated anyways.


Thank you for your reply. I would pick one of my original co-leaders but how do they take over?

You just promote them as leader and you become co-leader. Then you just leave. I did that when we merged alliances. I promoted a member who has been with us a long time, but stopped playing, and the active players just left.


To make someone the alliance leader, you need to choose someone who have co-leader status and promote that person, the same way you would promote some from Elder to Co-leader.

Promoting a player that is co-leader make him Leader and automatically downgrade you to co-leader.


What if your in an alliance where the leader is no longer active. Is there a way for a member to “take over?”

There is no way to take leadership from a leader best to take players and create or join a different one

Hi @DarkPaladin

Unfortunately, there isn’t. That also goes for Elders and Co-leaders, so no one can take over.

That being said it looks s to bad that isn’t put into the alliance to remove a leader after so many days inactive

If your alliance leader is inactive for 60 consecutive days, the system will automatically select a new leader from those eligible (co-leaders & elders).


However, a member can not take over leadership.

Yes, I was under the impression this should have been implemented feature. Haven’t had a chance to test out though, because I am still the active leader in my alliance.

It’s 60 days inactive. It happened in our alliance a while ago. At 30 days there is an in-game warning message. At 45 days there is an in-game message and the system sends the leader a push notification. Then, it auto-selects a co-leader or elder to be leader after the 60 days up.

I wonder why in dead alliances there is leadership over 1000 days inactive and still a alliance wouldn’t the alliance go to the active player left if any

Probably there are no co-leaders/elders to take over. Leadership is not transferred to members.
