      Alat Turka : no. Well, not in the "harsh" meaning of things.

      They want to establish it as a "permanent feature", but you can consider it as an open beta, hence Yak is quit eager to have alliances to play :p : they need to refine and tune the rules to see what will work in the long term.
      Running an online alliance is pretty much like running a small company, except you need to find other way than money to keep your employees productive. May they play or work, they are humans.

      Ok then. Enthusiastic @Yak :)

      Will we (Graywolf vs The Last Legion) be the first ones to play?
      And in the long run would we have arrange it by ourselves or you do the arrangement forever?

      P.S. "ala-turka" means "Turkish style", the nickname is a deformation of it. So my name is not Alat :)

      I can answer from a pragmatic point of view here : If this is successful, and works as intended (aka alliance grow / more alliances / more indirect customers through the elite tier) it would be gradually more and more painful to do it manually. So, i think we can expect something like that :


      Alpha of the Elite tier : only Dorado Staff (Yak and such) set up such games. It allows them to keep things under control, see if there are no abuse, change rules, see if it hurts their business. A ton of parameters, some i can anticipate, others i can't see. 100% Manual

      Beta of the Elite tier (Speculative): Moderation Staff + Dorado set up such games. At this point, you can assume it will be pretty permanent. As the thing is more and more popular, they need more hands. Those hands are your moderation staff, of course. Something i'll do with pleasure. At this point, maybe Dorado could/should add some kind of "button" within the alliance panel, that would create a support ticket "we wanna play", for the staff to review and handle. It would then become a regular part of our workflow, and even if "non perfect", you wouldn't wait for more than 24 hours in average to get your elite challenge. 50% Manual : Semi-Auto

      Once it's established and great (Very Speculative) : Nick finally purchased his third mansion, Yak his second, I'm rewarded for my loyal services with an Maltese escort, and everything is fine in the best of the worlds; At this point, maybe they will find that it's interesting to invest dev time to create an in-game system where alliances "enlist their players", with a rank check, then challenge another alliance, and the game is set up automatically. 100% auto.

      @Yak that game is for rainmen and TLL i am part of Graywolf and if that is for TLL vs Rainmen then make sure to contact a rainmen moderator or leader but @Crang and i have have arranged a match between Graywolf and TLL
      Deckhead is right. Rainmen is not challenging TLL to an elite match at this time. We are in process of setting something up with Carthage and will register and apply once we have the details and signatures in place.

      When applying for the form, you only need to answer the questions in the form. The rest of the pre-configured settings (Speed, AI, Min market price, etc.) are set by default and are not going to be changed for the time being.
      Also... please make sure there aren't any mistakes. The application was registered for Last Legion VS Rainmen.
