After a few hours of consultation with many alliance HCs, we've decided to change the alliance limit rule. Luckily, you don't need to learn calculus to understand the new formula.
The changes are detailed as follows:
the base rate has been changed from 50 to 55.
All those over 50 currently (listed below) can recruit to 55 and then Appocomaster will convert the relevant amount of applicants to recruits so they gain 5 members from their original total:
Vengeance 54 (59)
[F-Crew] 52 (57)
xVx 53 (58)
Tides of Fire 52 (57)
Howling Rain 52 (57)
ROCK 53 (58)
Hidden Agenda 54 (59)
(The preferred way to contact is via PA Mail - via IRC needs confirmation that you're a HC of the relevant alliance).
The time between recruiting members for alliances ranked below the top 5 is also changing. It was max(1,20-$current_alliance_rank) ticks, but is being changed to max(1,16-$current_alliance_rank) ticks.
Also, due to the fact this is in some ways a sudden change, and some alliances have turned away members, any member kicked out since tick 73 can get his alliance waiting time removed (provided he rejoins the alliance he was kicked from).
