Make war option default to opt out for individuals

Currently the default individual position is opted into wars. Can that be opted out?

We have alliance members who are opted in but dont hit… would be nice to opt out the alliance then back in to ‘reset’ all as opted out. Then only the ones who really want to can opt back in.

Fair point. I guess it gets sorted when they don’t hit, but you’re right, this would save the frustration of them being included on the battlefield when they have no intention of hitting.

Exactly my frustration

My alliance feels your pain, and I’m sure many others too

Honestly, I think there’s only so much hand-holding the devs can do.


I agree this is a sml little issue… but if it helps keep a few alliances happier then why not? Cant imagine the coding would be that much?

I don’t see any point of this. There would be many players, which would forget to opt in war. And lot of angry players. My advice is to ask him opt out and if not then kick out from alliance.


Isn’t this problem already addressed? I think players automatically get opted out from wars if not using their flags for two wars.

Edit: Continuing the discussion from Version 15 Releases Notes:


Think so. Hopefully that helps.

As @Ornery points out, after missing two wars the Opt Out box will automatically be checked. This seems like the right solution.


sorry if raised already but can the default on alliance war for members be set to default OFF rather than have the leader with a basic in/out option.

I am in an alliance where there is not full cooperation from some newer members. While we have alliance default for a war on members are given the option to opt out but some forget …

if the basic default was off members wanting to participate would then have to always OPT IN to play each time … once opted in the matching should then happen…

It can be frustrating when wars are lost by a few points from members that are absent for various reasons & fail to take the allotted hits …

I think this option should be sticky, but default to opt-out when joining an alliance. People join and leave just long enough to give a ex member in a war, or people who don’t know or want to play war are opted in automatically

Why is changing it where member needs to opt “IN” to war,that makes more sense to me.
