In this post, we want to talk about a few issues that players have raised regarding Alliance Wars:
1.) Some players do not receive Loot at the end of an Alliance War.
2.) Some players jump across multiple Alliance over a 2-day period and try to earn Loot from multiple Alliance Wars over that duration.
The first is a painful issue for players, one that we have fixed. The second, while it allows enterprising players to earn a lot of loot, is also a problem in our opinion, one that we had to correct.
Why is people earning Loot from multiple Alliance Wars over a 2-day period a problem?
Alliances are a core part of Empires & Allies. An Alliance is a group of people who play the game together, help each other and by doing so, become friends. It is intended to be a way of players getting to know each other over the game they love playing.
When players start hopping across Alliances to earn Loot from Wars, they are not participating in Wars, and thus, not helping their Alliance win. They’re just farming loot, which dilutes competition in Wars and undermines the whole Alliance System in the long run. That is why we want to curtail this occurrence.
In addition to the above, players jumping across Alliances also caused the first issue to occur in a lot of cases.
So, going forward, players who join an Alliance after an Alliance War starts will not receive loot from that particular War. Players will have to be a part of a single Alliance over a War’s entire duration to receive Loot from it.
