There are many more factors than this, mostly having to do with gov and membership. But the naming. the theme and the design of an alliance do sometimes ruin it.

#7: Don't make Sequel Alliances like say as an example: Pantheon 2 Electric Boogaloo.

#8:  Reviving a dead alliance is a no go. So go make your own and don't be so unoriginal and stale since that alliance is already dead/disbanded.

Haha, bloody Yank!

#9 Listen to the advice of people who have experience in the game and incorporate both your and their ideas into a hybrid that is unique and passionate community. Instead of just down-voting those you disagree with    

#10 Have a core group of mates that you can control a path for the alliance, instead of being a mishmash of randoms who you've only just met. Communication is key.

#11: Don't abuse a well-known infinite resources glitch. Even if you do everything else right, you do that one thing wrong, you get rolled and cost your coalition the war.

2. Wack themes--Random names or names already used by a previous alliances is just stale and in bad taste. Especially, names that have the words "united, union, republic, states, coalition, Knights, federation etc.)

Knights

Knights

Knights

These are ridiculous, let me enlighten you on the SRD mode of alliance leadership. 

1. Play this game and others like it for years.

2. Start an alliance of only active older players that have also been playing for years.

3. Make sure they all know what they are doing.

4. Make allies with other active alliances.

4. Sit back and relax you are done. Your alliance will now run itself.

This should be a game - just add one word and you have a new micro name.

United Democratic Union of Republic States Coalition Knights Federation

Don't rebrand your alliance or everyone will treat you like shit for the rest of your life.

Some of these are pretty amusing, especially from a few certain folk sharing their input.

13. If someone threatens you, run the numbers and throw the first punch. Micros get away with a lot and because they aren't expected to survive will be forgotten quickly by the people that matter. Hell even the people you end up fighting.

Damn. Is this why Cumalot rolls anyone who shit talks them? Well, anyone who is easy to roll, and if daddy BK can protect them while they are doing it.

Memes, but in a dynamic TM world, wouldn't you want to be be taking up arms when there's a disagreement between 2 alliances :P. And last I checked Bad Co. Didn't counter us during the TI incident, nothing was stopping them. Bk wasn't backing us on that one, and they knew that xD

1. Get a handful of people who have similar styles of gameplay/goals in the game who are also active. Start a group and have realistic expectations of growth. If the core groups activity fades, or interest drops too low, merge into another alliance and try to get yourself some sort of gov position in that established alliance you merged into. After that work your way up to a major leadership figure in the alliance, once that start to shape the alliance into what you wanted your original alliance to be and turn this new alliance into the one you actually wanted. You might lose some members when this happens, but you'll be better off than your original failing alliance was. You can also then merge again and repeat this process til you're at a size/place you like. After that don't rest upon your laurels, else some other upcoming leader might undermine your authority like you did to the previous leaders.

 

2. Or just do what makes you happy, and if people follow you for it great. All that matters is you're having fun doing what you're doing.

No. 99. Don't get your advice about alliance running from global forum.
