Player Created Alliances 101


Cyber Nations is home to a large community, most of which are involved in player created alliances. An alliance is a group of players who have bound themselves together by common interests and/or causes. These alliances can become sanctioned and receive in-game stats, a private forum and a specific user group color. There are only 12 sanctioned alliances at one time. All other alliances are unsanctioned.

Many new players want to jump right in and create their own alliance. It is a good idea to join one first before you do this. As a new player you’ll want to get to know how things work. Most of the alliances provide tips and strategies for game play while offering protection from other aggressive players. The Alliance Guide For Newbies is a good place to start looking for an alliance that fits you.

Once you have familiarized yourself with the way things work you are now ready to create your own alliance. Creating the alliance is simple; the hard work comes in recruitment and maintaining. To get your message out to like-minded players it is recommended to have the following:
  • Team Color (if any)
  • Charter/Manifesto
  • Sign-up Topic
  • Off-site Forum
  • Flag/Image
Why a Team Color?
Many of the alliances are based on teams. They have united in that Team Color to better use trades to their advantage. Other alliances do not require you to be on a particular team and are considered “colorless” alliances.

What is a charter?
A charter is in laymen terms a mission statement. This document will often state its positions on matters of war and peace, nuclear weapons, team color (if any) and also include the intricacies of the alliance government. Browse some of the other alliance charters to get an idea of what should be in it. If you attempt to use the framework of an existing charter it is always a good idea to give credit to the alliance.

What is a sign-up topic?
It explains itself. Make sure your topic subject reads something similar to “(Alliance Name) sign up thread.”

Where do I get an off-site forum?
There are many free forum providers on the Internet. The Cyber Nations forum is by InvisionFree.

Why a flag/image?
Many of the alliances use a flag or image to differentiate themselves from the rest. This is especially the case amongst the unsanctioned alliances that do not have the privilege of a forum mask to separate them. You will find these flags and/or images in the forum signatures of the players. Please keep in mind the Forum Language/Signature Rules when creating your image.

Once you have these you have everything necessary to properly create your own alliance. Now post your charter and sign-up thread in the Alliances and Wars forum. Congratulations and good luck! Any questions should be forwarded to d. praved.
