I know alliances will have great features so I was hoping we could get more information about them and hope that alliances will NOT only be same race since I am friend with about all the races and it might be a problem if the population is not equally divided between races.

I'd rather have them allow us to make an alliance with whomever we want. Some people will probably want to make the same race alliance only and that is perfectly fine. However, I don't see what the problem would be if say Humans and Elves wanted to alliance up. Heck, maybe you role play in this game and want to be an evil elf empire and alliance up with orcs.

Orc's arnt good either, their not "evil" as in doom destroy the world type. but their more likely to cleave off your leg and watch you crawl away in pain for entertainment, than to help you, is what i feel/understansd it like. their savages after all.

Auto-Alliances will be from any armies that have volunteered to become "army for hire" in the region. So in most cases this will be players from the same race, and even same region. This will help to build a stronger sense of community - as same 300 + players who populated this region will be helping each other. But if some Orc player brings his army to the human region X, and his army is for hire, he`ll also get called to help out humans under attack.

With friend - alliances - any races/regions, however - you can only help your ally if your army is in the same or adjacent region. So alliance with your friend in some region half way across the world map - won`t do much good.

Is this the same thing as a ''guild system'' where you can add people in it and help each other or it will be different?Because I'd be happy if we would see a Guild system where you can could any race and compete for some goals or for castles.

Just dont forget to implement Friend Foe Checks

It would be annoying If I Seek for PvP Enemys and get someone of my Alliance
Also if I seek pvp and someone from my Alliance whos marked as Army for Hire ends up joining enemy side this would be Bad


what I mean is
Dont overdo it
just do it slowly and right pls


:P

Will you be able to "Choose" Who you want, to Help you in a fight? or does it choose someone you don't know... Because I want to play with my friend, i want to defend with my friend, and even attack with my friend.

Alliances/PvP with more than 2 players has 3 levels.

1) Random Armies for hire. So lets say if a player wants to have a PvP match with many players, he doesn`t have to look for friends, allies, talk to people, wait for people - he just starts auto-match just as it is now, chooses to call in Armies for hire - and ends up in a 2vs2, 3vs3, or 2 vs 4 game (perfectly balanced for team strength)

2) Guilds. (This part will NOT be implemented next week until we implement Guilds in mid November). In this case player can invite either random guild members or specific guild members.

3) Friends. (This part will NOT be implemented until end of October). Player forms a team party with his friends and fights together as a team. In addition if player is attacked his friends who`s available for PvP will get option to help him out.
