What are your thoughts on this to try to make the creation and maintaining of an alliance a more serious thing rather than something almost anyone can do?

I voted other. In different games I have played, players could invest in-game currency (gold and prestige types) to increase the benefits of an alliance. I like that system.

A few million or something. I feel like if there was this and it used the prestiged it could become a p2w for alliances depending on when benefits there were.

I wouldn't mind an increase cost just to create an alliance but having an up-keep could possibly lead to fewer new alliances and taxes becoming necessary if the price is high

There is nothing wrong with paying for minor advantages.

You can already get a 10% bonus for a week for 4 prestige, and everybody accepts that. I think alliances should be allowed to build small, specific advantages. For example, maybe a trade alliance would invest in a boost to caravan speed or harvesting rate.

An example system from an older MMORTS worked like this: alliance skills had 10 levels. Each level provided the same increase as the last level, but cost more. One skill provided a -2% cost reduction to alliance skill investment. Another increased the harvest yield from alliance farms and mines by 5% per level. Investment was purely voluntary (although it did give you alliance ranking points). When the team reached the target amount, the alliance skill leveled up and the next level was unlocked. Investment was in silver, their equivalent of Illyriad gold pieces.

Spending team prestige in that game allowed you to purchase cosmetic alliance items like a cooler banner in battle.

I do like the idea of being able to invest game currency into your alliance for benefits. I don't think that the benefits should be a permanent feature, but a temporary boost that could be activated by the founder or alliance leader. There could also be tiers to the benefits that can increase in cost, but the benefits increase as well

Example: Temporally increase the speed of caravans for alliance member for 8 hours. T1 is 3% increase, T2 is 5%, and so on.

This is just a suggestion and my opinions.

I choose 'Other'.

I am all for Alliance wide temporary bonus/boast Thumbs Up... Really good idea Ten Kulch and General Lacesso.

This may be outside the scope of this thread, but there need to be something like alliance Campaign option, which is funded by alliance coffer and provide ability to setup something like FBO (Forward Base of Operations) a very important military aspect which is missing from this game. Alliance members can opt-in (participate) or opt-out (run away) from the campaign (for some intra-alliance drama). Member participation can be military (personnel) or support (resources). Instead of a square, FBO can even be any of alliance member city which can fit certain resource profile. I can go on and on let me shut up here! Geek

BTW if the issue is 'Too many alliances', another solution can be to provide option to eliminate alliance... May be by besieging the alliance capital or something is that vein...

Wacko ok zipping it...

I think a 10 leveled alliance would be helpful. Even like a 1% gold boost per level. Then, to add on to Rajput, I think it should be possible to destroy an alliance. Each level in the alliance gives an objective city. So a large 10 level alliance would have 10 cities to destroy before the alliance was disbanded. The alliance leader could decide an change object cities but put like a 14 day cooldown on it.

Unless there is a drastic change in the numbers, once the poll reaches 48 hours old, I will make a poll asking how much it should cost to make an alliance. Depending on how that goes, I will average the results and make a petition asking for the starting cost of alliances to be changed to the new figure.
