Subject: Introducing the Alliance Spotlight!

Hello Illyrians,

I'd like to announce the introduction of the Alliance Spotlight. Alliances play a huge role in Illyriad, allowing players to band together to hold sway over huge tracts of land and even enforce their own rules.  We'd like to take a closer look into what makes some of the great Alliances of Illyriad tick, what motivates them, and perhaps even glean some secrets to success.

As with the Player Spotlight program, we'll be choosing the alliance via player nominations.  If you think you have an alliance worthy of spotlight let us know! We're not just looking for the best of the best either, nominations can be submitted for a myriad of different reasons: Training alliances, theme alliances, needlessly aggressive alliances, etc.  If you think it's interesting, we might think so too! Send all nominations to  mailto:community@illyriad.co.uk" rel="nofollow - community@illyriad.co.uk

The spotlight will be quarterly instead of monthly as there are far fewer Alliances than there are players. The alliance will be showcased on the website and all members will receive a unique Alliance Spotlight medal for that quarter! 

Looking forward to seeing those nominations!

It would be interesting if the spotlight were to consider alliances that are truly of all sizes.  I have nominated an alliance with just four members.

Alliances that I didn't nominate, but considered:
  - SkB and Fam, which have interesting tools at the disposal of their members
  - SIN, who have been truly glorious, and whose diaspora continue to shake up the game
  - 300, because of the Thunderdome
  - Hog, which seems to be the most exciting training alliance

I like the idea.
It lets people outside of the alliances chosen understand some more information about the alliance besides what information they present on the alliance summary page. Like how that particular alliance works, how certain things or possibly how they may go about on certain situations etc.. depending on questions and answers.It could lead to new alliances created that would steal ideas from different ones and add that to there own ideas and wishes.Alliances that are spotlighted could possibly see different, new members wanting to join because of the new information from the spotlight.

For Voting would you just create another thread for monthly,weekly etc.. they would vote? You could have a poll too so there wouldn't be a lot of spam or people voting more then once although it would be a lot of work,the First time.

When will the voting start, or when will this start?
i am Curious on what different alliances will say.

Respectfully,
BillCipher

choose randomly from alliances that have lasted for at least three months, have at least ten members, and have not been spotlighted (spotlit?) in the past 12 months. nice surprise for those chosen, should encourage a good variety of large and small, old and new, and won't be an opportunity for metagaming.

Just to clarify some of the above comments. In the past the term Training Alliance has carried with it an understanding that its members would not be attacked, and in return would not attack others. Last November we found that this understanding was not being respected by a particularly obnoxious player, so we found it necessary to issue a statement that we would no longer passively tolerate attacks on our members.

Notwithstanding that statement, we still view ourselves as primarily a training alliance with perhaps an asterisk. We will not passively tolerate abuse of our members. The world of Illyriad evolves and so do we.

Too bad HUGcr can't be spotlighted anymore :(

But I like this idea, Cerb.

I like the idea,Cerbs.
Although the only thing that really bothers me here is that isn't gonna be pretty biased to some point?
People from there own alliance are going to for there alliance,most likely that is.
So really it's going to come down to who has the most people in there alliance.

There are a couple ways to fix it.
Firstly,
Have it where people can't vote for there own alliance.This completely eliminates the chance of people voting for there own alliance,but could make it a little difficult.
Secondly,
Give people two votes.Only 1 vote is for your alliance.

There are probably different ways or even better ways.

I like the idea,Still do.
It lets people outside of the alliances chosen understand some more information about the alliance besides what information they present on the alliance summary page. Like how that particular alliance works,how certain things or possibly how they may go about on certain situations etc.. depending on questions and answers.It could lead to new alliances created that would steal ideas from different ones and add that to there own ideas and wishes.Alliances that are spotlighted could possibly see different,new members wanting to join because of the new information from the spotlight.

Will Retract my statements w/ it being biased because once there alliance is picked it wouldn't be picked again and those voted for there own alliance would be ignored

For Voting would you just create another thread for monthly,weekly etc.. they would vote? You could have a poll too so there wouldn't be a lot of spam or people voting more then once although it would be a lot of work,the First time.

Seeing as though your profile page implies jokes that are against the ToC. I would suggest you shush a bit and clean yourself up.

I would like to vote for The Hashashin (SIN). In the 3+ years since it has been formed SIN has had a big impact on the game. SIN's unique style of game play has affected many. SIN's offical land claim in Fellandire changed the course of the game. Other alliance's have since followed suit. Overall SIN has contributed greatly to the game play of Illyriad. SIN also has unique characters, that are active and enjoy the game.


Thank you
Fiona

I Nominate: The Hashashin [SIN]

Fiona pointed out a lot of goodies. Other than the land claim and the ongoing aggressive stance that keeps the game on its toes, SIN also engages in a lot of social aspects and keep an active player base active through social talk and fun on 3rd party chat programmes like Slack.
--
I'd like to add that the friends of SIN -the SINdicate- are just as awesome and deserve recognition and honour.
