I’m the leader of Gramps’ Gladiators. The majority of members in this alliance like the new Alliance Wars, but we have a few who do not. This wouldn’t be a problem, except that they each have a team out on the battlefield. Two of the teams were only 4 weak heroes. When the war starts, the enemy immediately takes these teams out, and again as soon as they re-spawn. The alliance members do not attack the enemy, so they lose points and don’t gain any. One of our first wars was lost by a total of 15 points because of this. 15 points!
These members are not hurting our chances of winning on purpose. About 3/4 of my alliance use chat all the time, but there are a few who do not, and the three that I was having problems with were some of those few. I finally got one member’s attention, she had no interest in the war, and had no idea she had been hurting the team. She also didn’t know how to take her heroes off the battlefield, which she did as soon as I told her how.
The second one had the worst team out there. I tried to get his attention for weeks, to no avail. Finally I set our alliance to Invite Only, and booted him. I figured when he came back in, someone could finally explain why he had been booted, and tell him how to take his team off the battlefield. Unfortunately, it’s been 3 days, and he hasn’t come back. That was not my intention, and now we’ve lost a good member.
That leaves us with one member still out there that is hurting our alliance. He has a pretty strong team out there, but he doesn’t participate, so he loses points and never gets any back. He doesn’t read the chat, so I have no way of getting in touch with him. I am not going to boot any more members, we have a very tight team, it’s just that all some members want to do (or have time to do) is to log in, fight the Titan, collect their stuff, and work on advancing their heroes. What can I do? There must be some way of getting in touch with my own Alliance members! When we lose a war by 15 points, and there’s one member who isn’t attacking, the rest of the Alliance is going to feel some resentment, and I can’t blame them. It’s making something that most of us really enjoy into a lot of frustration.
Is it possible to contact a moderator, or someone who works for the company that puts out the game, and ask them to send a member a message? One simple message would solve so many problems!
