Thanks for the tourney, current and future.    We're looking forward to regular tourneys in Harmless. :)

Happy 10th Anniversary Devs!!!  :)    Wow, I can't believe I've been playing for almost ten years...(next month).

Could there be some way for an alliance leader to force recall a player in that alliance's troops from a tourney square or some other way of dealing with this?

It's an interesting question, but I do rather see this as an edge case.  This scenario has been possible in any other previous tournament we've run, and hasn't happened before.  It would seem to me that a possible workaround would be for the alliance who wish to be rid of the player to simply recall all their own armies just before a large hit on the tournament square, leaving the disruptive player to take the hit on their own, and thus leaving them without any troops on a tournament square, and the ability to be kicked.  That is, if kicking someone from the alliance is deemed more important to the alliance leadership than potentially winning or losing the square. 

I think it's unlikely that we'll implement such a 'forced recall' process.  Alliances are responsible for their own recruitment and vetting procedures, and I'm not sure the dev team should be spending time on providing people with easy solutions to problems of their own making :)

Regards,

SC

Sure, if the Regional Winning Alliance chooses the 'Inactive Totem'.  

As above, in the FAQs:

In the end, everyone either stays resource neutral (if the "Inactive Totem" is chosen)... or they get something distinctly useful, chosen by the Regional Winning Alliance. 

Cheers,

I agree with Huc and Laga. That  probably  means this is an update with near universal appeal. LOL

Awesome idea! I'm looking forward to being able to compete!

One... slight issue. The inability to be kicked for a month seems like a potentially abuseable thing if people know it will happen regularly. 

As an example of how this could be abused, let's say Arion Splintspur were to become dissatisfied with the leadership of Bob Diamond. 

In the past, if Arion then proceeded to trash the alliance in GC or attempted to cause significant diplomatic issues, Bob could kick Arion and the problem would be somewhat solved. Rather than being a player from that alliance warning all the new players to stay away it would be some unconnected player, and any diplomatic issues Arion caused would now be Arion's problem rather than Bob's.

However, now Arion could wait for a tourney, stick a whole bunch of troops on the tourney square that his alliance has won for the past 5 seasons in a row, and then Bob would have to wait a month to kick Arion. During this month, Arion would be able to do whatever he wanted to harm the reputation of that alliance.

Could there be some way for an alliance leader to force recall a player in that alliance's troops from a tourney square or some other way of dealing with this?

This is the thread that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend. Some person started it, not knowing what it was, and we'll continue posting on it forever just because...
