"• Alliances can be accept/decline through the mail."
I'll assume an Alliance has an owner in the same way as a Clan, but what I wonder is is there the power to remove a clan from the alliance if so a coup could be all too easy to do, Kick out one clan and invite in a rival losing any progress a clan has made until then. on the other side of the coin if a clan leader became inactive and he couldn't be kicked then it would scupper the alliance in effect.
We could side with a megolomaniac who just wants to use our numbers. Can we try and found to alliance to safeguard our interests?
Sounds like cloak and dagger but I played EVE online
and the politics and progression of the alliance cannot be left to someone not in complete control.
I hope DE have planned this next step carefully.
