I am afraid that I have to close the poll no matter what the result would have been.
The standard alliance size is 10 on all servers exept custom worlds.

In this poll are 3 options with an higher number (12, 14, 16)
but there is no option with a lower number as for example 8 or 6.

As a poll with 7 options will lead to confusion and chaos, especially when there isn't that much time left before the CE starts, it looks like we will just go with the standard number of 10.



A public vote which can only end with an increase of the alliance size, is as good as no voting at all. Sorry, must have been a blonde moment for me to set it up on the way that I did


Not to come off as over critical, but if an overwhelming majority has leaned towards a 16 man alliance why would you dismiss the vote? I know that i havnt been the most active player as of late but i have been around for a long time and larger alliances tend to breed more competition. The 24 man alliances were very fun and did the job of getting people to go at each other. For an event that is expected to be huge making the alliance size small will only increase the number of subs and the number of people not really playing as ONLY the 1st-3rd place get anything. So why not make the alliances bigger and offer more people the opportunity of victory?

VoTING is a JOKE.. FORUM is a joke!!! GAME is a joke! CE is a joke!!!

first JUNE when most of us will have our final semester endings..

than 16 now 10... lol ... why dont admins stand with one word? why such a mess if u guys were already makiing a 10 man team!

BD needs a change..so more players are attracted to the game!
Asians like always have been ignored in this setup too!

i dont know the make up of presentation but i hope so u guys get what i am trying to imply!... RoFL xD

okay, I'll try to answer as much as possible
@Rania: you can find all these details in my first post. 10 relics, 5k, 3k for 2nd and 3rd..

@crazy: it wasn't fixed before who will admin the server and we all have times where we won't be available. I am not sure if you know that I have family, and we will be on vacation end of august. Same goes for every other admin. We have all our times where we won't be available. And as much as the CE is made for the players of BD, it won't make sense to announce something where no one is able to admin it and take care of your needs. The 1st of june was by coincidence a date where the most would have been able to be around.
For messing up the voting - blame me. I know now that it was a mistake with this numbers. I had the best intention but lost the overview that I should have given lower numbers too. Once again, sorry for that

@greeny: yup, I agree. Every alliance size has it pros and cons. A 16 members team would give you some time to breath, while a 10 men team is surely creating more competition instead of winning by a crazy amount of units, while an 8 men team has the problem that they cannot compete when only 1 person starts to be inactive or not able to log in for a day.
The whole poll was flawed and now the only way is to go with the standard number of 10 as most of all players are used to this number anyway

@Seth/Felgrand As Ce is one of the biggest events when not even the biggest event of the year, I shouldn't go with this ping-pong tactic. I did a mistake, I notice it now...but it would be stupid to try to continue with this mistake instead of facing the trouble and go with the the only option to set it to the standard amount of players. I'll be happy to host a 8 members alliance as well as a 16 members alliance on one of my servers. In this case, you can decide if you want to play there or not. But we have only one CE :/


Please let me know when any of your question isn't answered!

it doesnt matter because people are still going to make subs no matter on the size of the alliance

Thanks, Ilona.

Maybe close this thread? As not to cause confusion.
