Upcoming Organization Changes


Recommended Posts

We’re making some changes to the way organizations work. 

 

Currently, organizations can cascade within themselves thus making it possible to create a near-infinite multitude of sub-organizations. This poses a problem from both a design and cost perspective as it removes any form of scaling limit to the amount of constructs and organization that can be in the game. It also leaves the door open for various ways to circumvent limitations needed for balancing. 

 

These changes will address these issues as well as clear up a number of anomalies that are affecting some existing organizations. They will be included in the 0.26 update, which gives you more than a month to reorganize as needed. 

 

New regulations for organizations will be:

  • Each organization must have a player as its super legate.
  • An account can only be the super legate of one organization.
  • Nested organizations will still be possible but will require a player as super legate of that organization, and that player cannot also be the super legate of the parent organization.
     

To ensure a smooth transition and have things set up the way you prefer, we encourage you to restructure your org(s) accordingly. Organizations that have not been updated will undergo an automated modification process. This will be done in a prioritized order as described below. 

 

For players that are the super legate of multiple organizations:

  1. One organization will be selected as the player’s primary organization according to the following parameters:
    • The number of players in the organization.
    • The number of constructs in the organization.
    • The age of the organization.
  2. The player will become a designated legate for any other orgs to which they belong.
     

To address situations where an organization is nested within another so that there is no player designated as super legate, these are the solutions we’ll pursue: 

  1. The legate with the most seniority that is not already a super legate of an organization and has connected over the past month at the time of the change is promoted to super legate.
  2. If no legates exist, the oldest member that is not already a super legate of an organization and has played within the past month at the time of the change is promoted to super legate.
  3. The oldest legate that is not already a super legate of an organization is promoted to super legate.
  4. The oldest member that is not already a super legate of an organization is promoted to super legate.
  5. If none of the above apply, the organization will be disbanded.
     

Constructs and territories for any properly structured organizations or organizations that are assigned a new super legate will be unaffected and remain in ownership of that organization. The constructs and territories of disbanded orgs will be reassigned to the first former super legate in the chain of organization parenting. Any other construct will be abandoned, and territories will be unclaimed.
