It’s automatically handled by the system after 30 days of inactivity from all founders.How are founders selected in the event of one going inactive? i thought members of a guild had to reach out to support to get a new founder appointed (which presumably had some level of thought invested in the selection process.) what defines an inactive founder to trigger another being appointed?
First and primary factor is whoever is already assigned the Leader rolewho would be selected? highest points?, point change?, most talkative?, longest time logged in? some calculated scoring of all factors?
I became curious about all those sitting in dead guilds. Why did they do it? I made the effort to start talking in some of those guilds and got a response from quite a few guys in them. OK I know for me (and most of us) our natural instinct when trying something new is to find out how it works. But not everyone is like that. A lot have never played any sort of online game at all. Or had only dabbled with basic word games or candy crush stuff. And just do not think beyond the tutorial. The games they had played did all the thinking for them and all they had to do was press a couple of buttons. They thought playing the game at that simple level was all there was to it. Some are scared to try stuff in case they screw things up. Some (on Beta) landed in English speaking guilds and could not speak the language. And some did not realize that the game requires you to communicate with other players. Some genuinely had no interest at all in playing anything other than a solitary game. On Beta I got quite a few into guilds that did speak their language and they are now playing the game. Others I encouraged to explore all the different parts of the game. It was an eye opener to them and could not believe they had sat like dummies for so long. And some had tried to find a live guild and had given up. One of the common responses was "And we can do this without spending money?" Most wanted to stay where they were and build up the guild they were in. But most of the founders never responded, or those who did (Even on Beta) were complete beginners themselves and did not have a clue about what was involved in running a guild or how to advise any of the members. I did tell then how to find an active guild, and most did that. And some are now spending money on the game.Why would you stay in a dead guild anyway?
This is going to be a big issue for anyone that plays the game. You could hypothetically play it solo, but good luck getting the resources you need reliably for completing Events and leveling Great Buildings if you're doing that.Some genuinely had no interest at all in playing anything other than a solitary game.
We do not interfere in guild affairs" and " The system automatically assigns a new founder if a founder has been inactive for 30 day"
They care, but there's good reason to let the system handle the handing over of Founders. People make mistakes unintentionally. If anyone can contact support to change the Founder willy nilly then anyone can just take over any Guild they choose. Removing support from the equation means you can't coerce or manipulate support into gaining access to something that doesn't belong to you.it obviously does not honestly have any care about building a long term customer base any longer.
