Great project, thanks SG! :slight_smile: Our banner is updated.

We’ll do lots of mercing to practice digital social distancing. :slight_smile:

In all seriousness: We loosened our requirements so people don’t have to stress about the game while having to cope with this new situation at home/in RL. :slight_smile: It is after all still just a game and should be fun - not a burden. :slight_smile:

Very cool initiative. Nice to see Zynga / SG taking the opportunity to highlight some of the good that can come from gaming, and focus the game community to the task at hand.

The Full Moon family of alliances is excited for the #PlayApartTogether , and looks forward to participating :slight_smile:

Thank you SG for not just signing up, but for pledging some fun activities for this community to enjoy together.

I imagine we all have some real world friends who we’d think might enjoy this game. But no extra alliance slots, and knowing the long lead in time for the game… isn’t really practical.

Any thought to adding some alliance slots that can be for new accounts only? Trophy count of those 5 slots shouldn’t affect alliance rank… and simultaneously adding, maybe an experience boost for 2 and 3* heroes… so the new players can get into the meat and potatoes of alliance activities a little quicker.

(I’ve been trying hard to think of something that’d benefit new players without being a slap in the face to the players who started in late 2019, early 2020)

As much as I loathe the Gacha of this game, I’d ask some real world friends to join if I had a spot in the alliance for them to join.

Really cool idea, as crazy as things are getting it’s good to see companies stepping up to raise awareness.

With that said, of course you need to give the Fine Shrubbery Traders a shrubbear avatar…:joy::sunglasses:

This is a great idea, @Petri. #Heliosapproves

We have put the #playaparttogether tag on our description, and are talking about ways to increase our standing while still being understanding of the strain that COVID-19 puts on all of us in various ways. That can be quite challenging, as this has affected many in our alliance with regards to jobs, furloughs and other collateral effects.

Stay safe, stay inside folks.

I’m interested to see how other alliances integrate this initiative.

On the RL side of things, I’ve done a couple virtual game nights with friends… playing Drawful and LieSwatter. Fun times for sure… even with the distance, plenty of laughter to make things feel a little more normal.

There’s now an online version of Cards Against Humanity if anyone is interested.

I love EnP… but sometimes I need a slightly different distraction, especially when I get a string of losses in raids. ahhhh!

Great idea.

I’m just curios about real steps. I believe that it is a good time for revising all the alliance related ideas that have been recently proposed. Like friendly in alliance raids, donations in heroes and materials to alliance mates etc.

Eagerly awaiting the inevitable POV-esque complaints… “I have to be in an alliance to get rewarded? No fair!”
“I have to log in AND check my inbox? There are only so many hours in a day”
