New "more refined" alliance poll(s):

Apparently I failed to identify every player’s “ideal alliance type” in my original poll, so I will now break it down into different categories instead for (hopefully) more accurate results.

ALLIANCE POLLS

YOUR IDEAL ALLIANCE TYPES

QUESTION #1:

What is your ideal ALLIANCE SIZE in terms of membership numbers?

  • Full / nearly full - the more the merrier, more chat, higher titans
  • Medium - prefer a smaller group of friendly people I know as opposed to a huge group where I’m surrounded by strangers and might get overwhelmed / forgotten / etc.
  • Small / solo or near solo - I like it when it’s just me and maybe a couple of friends
  • Other - explain below

QUESTION #2:

What qualities do you look for and admire MOST in your fellow alliance mates?

  • They are friendly and helpful towards fellow members
  • They like to goof around and have fun in chat without taking the game too seriously
  • They take the game very seriously and make sure that everyone else does too
  • They’re always 100% active in the game, all day, every day, never once missing a flag for anything
  • They have strong rosters and always put up the highest scores
  • Don’t care - as long as they leave me the hell alone, I’m happy

0 voters

QUESTION #3:

What “violations”, in your opinion, should be grounds for a fellow member to be KICKED from your alliance?

  • Rude / offensive chat
  • Not chatting at all
  • Missing war flags with no excuse
  • Going after wrong war targets / using wrong color tank / otherwise disobeying war instructions
  • Not logging in every day (unless excused)
  • Not holding enough cups
  • Other (explain)
  • None of these, I don’t think anyone should be kicked

0 voters

QUESTION #3B

Same question, but titan specific: what titan “violations”, in your opinion, should be grounds for a fellow member to be KICKED from your alliance?

  • Logging in and not hitting the titan at all
  • Using less than 6 flags on any titan
  • Scoring less than X points on any titan
  • Hitting the titan after leader specifically told them not to (“letting it go”)
  • Other (explain)
  • None of the above, titans are optional

0 voters

QUESTION #4:

How would you MOST prefer your alliance to “deal” with other members of your alliance who “break the rules” or “not carrying their weight”? Keeping in mind that you yourself might also be subject to the same punishment?

  • Instant kick. You know the rules and you broke them. Bye bye.
  • Warning / demotion then kick if it happens again.
  • Rest of the alliance gangs up to name and shame the individual.
  • Polite friendly talking to.
  • Ignore. Who cares? It’s just a game.
  • Depends on the violator and the nature of the violation (probably most likely answer… see question 4B)

0 voters

QUESTION #4B:

Under which conditions would YOU PERSONALLY consider allowing a fellow member some “slack” if they were to violate one of your alliance’s rules?

  • New member, maybe didn’t know rules
  • Old member who doesn’t usually break rules
  • Was a minor offense anyway and they’re not a repeat offender (yet)
  • They had a (seemingly) valid excuse
  • You like the person and don’t really care what they did wrong
  • Other (explain)
  • You don’t care, it’s none of your business what other players do

I may think of additional questions to add later, but I think this is a good starting point (and hopefully one that includes more options for everyone to be able to “custom tailor” their own preferences) :grin:

I’m getting better feedback on these polls it seems. :slightly_smiling_face:

I might have screwed up one of my own votes… on question #3, I probably should have also voted for “missing war flags with no excuse” as being grounds for kick.

I’m just very lenient when it comes to excuses. Not that I’m encouraging any of my members to test me on this… I expect them to abide by our “honor code” which includes but is not limited to NOT LYING to your leader… but if they told me “I couldn’t use war flags because my dog ate my phone”

:thinking: :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Okay… I might at least “pretend” to believe that… one time… second time? I’m probably going to want to see an X-ray from the veterinarian.

What I like LEAST in a leader: [Other]
Wishy washiness, reactive, flips flops a lot, or is unclear. It’s not just at the beginning, where “the rules” gives some idea if I’ve joined the right group. Waking up every day to some new, poorly thought out idea on what’s best is just too aggravating, especially when you fall foul of the new rules… then find out that those aren’t the rules anymore a few hours later.

This is kind of related to hypocrisy and leniency, but isn’t quite the same thing.

I want to choose more than one!!

In all honesty one time one of my dogs ate a small toy phone which was, in fact, mine. In that case it would be entirely truthful to have said “My dog ate my phone” … followed the next day by yet another weird thing I had to look for in poo story …

For my “other” on the titan question, none of those are a first time violation kick. If we talk and have an understanding of a given situation and they break it, fine. For one player to log on once and not swing on a titan during that duration is a bit much IMO. There are a million thing that can come up in RL at that moment as to why they didn’t swing. I guess that’s how strict my preferred alliance is though.

Like they have to be able to divide AND multiply? If you bring up imaginary numbers as a requirement I’m calling it now that we can never be friends :rofl:

:beers:

Reminds me of this…
