- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create �sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.

- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • Replacing Inactive Empire Leader

    Hi everyone,

    I'm an officer in our empire, but not at the "star" level (whatever it's called). The only person at that top level has disappeared from activity. This means, of course, that some of the admin functions (like removing inactive players) is not available to any one.

    Is there a way to stage a coup? Actually, I don't care about the missing leader being absent, I just want someone active to have full admin access. Is there anyway to promote someone through a collective group vote?


    (and if not, this would be an interesting twist to the game. More like real mafia, where the leaders are sometimes assassinated by their underlings).

    Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

    Mr Sneed

      Tr to get your boss to promote an officer a second time. Then he becomes boss. A good boss will if he can't be active.

        Contact support. What you are proposing for voting will just creat unnecessary headaches. But Yes it's a pain with leader running.

          Re: Replacing Inactive Empire Leader

          It depends on just how long the GM has been inactive for before we will step in. However, Please contact support. For changes to Empires and their leadership we would need to poke the developer team for assistance.

          Information we need in email:
          - Empire Name
          - Old Leader Army Code or level/in game name
          - Name of Officer to take place
          - Army Code of Officer to take place

            Re: Replacing Inactive Empire Leader

            Thank you for all the replies. I am conferring with the other high-level, active players to determine if we need to take this course of action.

            Airmid: Is it possible to ask support to simply promote one of the active officers rather than "deposing" the current leader? We haven't been able to get any response from him, but he may have a legitimate reason for being offline for so long and will return when he can.

              We can keep him as an officer, yes.

                Regular officers have just as much authority as the leader. Any officer can promote/demote/invite/whatever

                  And I must ask, since when? Are you an officer? A leader? You can't kick people out or change the message for the empire and other thing I don't know about. An officer can only do so much without the leader on hand.

                    Yes I have been an officer in AFS twice, EN, and an empire when I first started. I always thought you could kick people out but I never tried when I was an officer, but I just clarified that you can't kick people out but you can do everything else. As for the message thing idk about that. I never worried about what the message said. I always just assumed you could kick since you can accept but I never went over the leaders head to try to kick

                      maybe a empire wide vote to take out the leader would be fun.....not you Sal.

                        Re: Replacing Inactive Empire Leader

                        I sent the email an email to Support (as did at least one other active officer), but we have yet to hear back from them. Can anyone tell me about how long we will need to wait? We have a few new members that are very active, but we're going to lose them if we can't get the empire organized, focused and moving forward. It is SO frustrating.

                          PM Arimid from this forum she's pretty good about looking into things and you can see above she is aware of your plight.

                            Thanks for the suggestion. I did and she said she would look into it. Meanwhile, one of the other officers in the empire sent a similar email to Support and just heard back from them. They told him that either

                            1) The previous leader must promote someone (regardless that he is inactive), or
                            2) Quit this empire and go start a new one.

                            Not the answer we were hoping for. Maybe Airmid can still help, or at least explain.

                              Yikes sad to see support getting lazy. Airmid can get it done for ya. What your asking is more of a custom request and standard support they probably dont wanna deal with it.
