Hello friends. I am Leonhart_Arkada, the Aedile (chief negotiator) of the Titans Valor guild. The recent formation of a particular alliance, the LUNA alliance, causes great harm to the guild warring system. This alliance, formed at first by the four most powerful guilds on Wynn, has created a monopoly on guild territory, meaning that no guild outside of the alliance can maintain territory without retaliation from multiple allied guilds. I suggest that this monopoly is a detriment to the warring community as it denies non-LUNA guilds from growing, invokes futility in both war and negotiations, and disregards the controversial yet unenforced Rule 18 on the usage of sub guilds for territory assault and defense. Although small guilds that desire to war can still war without restrictions, they cannot attain any lasting benefits from their toil. Any guild that attempts to gain territory for a long period of time will face retaliation from multiple LUNA guilds, preventing a lasting xp and emerald gain from their territory. Meanwhile, the stronger guilds maintain their land, reaping the benefits of land that cannot be taken. Essentially, the poor stay poor, while the wealthy get wealthy. On a side note, I have heard comparisons between LUNA and The Federation, an older alliance I am unaware of. If you have any information about them, that would certainly be useful in this discussion. Additionally, the LUNA alliance evidently makes war futile for the aforementioned reasons: that land acquisition among non LUNA guilds is brief and pointless due to the large supply of active warrers among the many involved alliance members. You may suggest that non LUNA guilds can enter negotiations with LUNA guilds in order to gain territory. However, this strategy is ineffective and futile as well. Those who do not have cards in the first place are in no position to make a deal. Remember, LUNA is an alliance of Wynncraft's largest guilds, each willing to reclaim land for other guilds in order to maintain the alliance. These guilds are aware of their incredible power, and have no need for negotiations with smaller guilds without territory. Even if negotiations could occur, the alliance can impose whatever conditions they please without fear of retaliation. Now for the most difficult topic. If you remember the assault on Fox in the Canyon, you will remember Fox's use of sub guilds in order to quickly reclaim land. I do not wish to start a debate on whether sub guilds themselves should be banned or not. Nonetheless, I argue that the usage of sub guilds has not been legalized or outlawed due to the poor enforcement of Rule 18 and due to the apparent silence of the staff team (except for one mod on brokenmotor's general suggestions page). The legality of sub guilds, although less relevant to my aforementioned grievances with LUNA, should be considered in the event that the LUNA alliance desires to rely upon sub guilds to maintain territory or if a major guild in the LUNA alliance, decides to act as a sub guild for other members of the alliance. I am uncertain of the solution to this monopoly. I would love suggestions and constructive modifications to my arguments. My purpose here is to maintain a healthy and nontoxic warring community on Wynncraft. Thank you for your time.
