We'll get back to you on that....
Wink


but seriously, which leaders have you approached and what was the subject of your questions?  I am not a leader as such, but found I generally got pretty straight forward answers from them which is part of the reason I transfered my account here at the end of the Valar war.

Perhaps you are asking too many things in relation to the crowalition as a whole, as obviously it takes time to define answers to questions like that, you need to ensure everyone is on a single line and as the crowalition is fairly free thinking between its individual alliances, making such declarations require alot of deliberation.



I will go with the assumption that Brids17's question was tongue in cheek since Brids17 is part of Crow leadership, no?  (Rook?!?)

Mostly tongue in cheek. But it is hard to get anyone to get an answer out of the other two Rook's in mCrow. Though I think that's mostly due to being busy in real life.

I can only speak for myself and say that usually it's because the answer is "I don't know."  Sure, I could just SAY "I don't know," but then I'd feel stupid. Plus, people don't believe me anyway.

I think it's difficult to get an answer because policy is difficult. Every case should be treated on its own merits, but the game is complicated enough that there are always exceptions to the general case/policy.

I'm sure everyone wants to know the boundaries of someone they're competing with. Setting expectations can help avoid conflict, especially if they relate to the case in point. Many alliances set 'lazy expectations' - detailed conditions that will and will not be tolerated, and I say "lazy" because they do not consider all the possibilities of a specific case that a player will be curious about. Besides, these policies must be sought-out, and for that reason, they're effectively inaccessible.

If players want to operate with transparency, and avoid wars over silly misunderstandings, then those players should enter situations carefully, being aware of potential conflicts, and then open the diplomatic channel (I mean talking PvP, rather than sending in the Assassins!) to agree boundaries.

So, the short answer to nearly everything is, "Every case is different; let's talk about this one."

(edit, for spelling correction)

Here are another couple for Harry (or Mona, or Rill, or Crowish leadership in general):

1. What does being a Rook actually mean?  I realize you have to call your leadership something, but it's something that's fairly consistent across all the Crow branches.  Which implies to me there is a more concrete idea involved besides just "whoever is in charge of <whatever> alliance."

2. How does the Crowalition actually work?  Or does it?  Maybe this is a follow-up to #1 and involves Rooks.  I guess I'm wondering how broader policy decisions are addressed, or if they are at all?  It seems to me that the Crows are a very loose-knit group held together by just names and a mutual defense pact.  The community at-large seems to hold some different opinions though, and I don't understand why that is...  (Something historical, maybe?)

I have a general Crowalition question--- What does a conference room look like after a long meeting of your leadership team? And who cleans that up? ;)
