From what I can tell from the dev blogs and such is that there isn't going to be a player that will be house leader. It will be run by the devs if anything. They will have a ranking system for each house but it will have no real command value set to it. It's just a way of recognizing those that have put in the time and effort into the game to achieve that status. I read somewhere that possibly at a certain rank we will be able to choose to join certain "elite?" house units and that also, at some point, they possibly will allow higher ranks to have some say in what planets will be attacked. Although this last part I am uncertain about.
Anyway, kudos for putting a site together to help ppl get to know each other a little better! Hopefully PGI will have at least some kind of dedicated forums based on game affiliation, we'll be able to tell in another month or so
For those that know me, they know where my loyalties lie, for those that do not, may name is Ito and I have been around a while.
I hope that one day they (the Devs) will trust us to run the game as we did in EGA, but I do not see it happening in the near future. So, I believe we, as a House need to get to know each other and start fresh and start building friendships.
Many leagues will be joining up here and many former leaders will be here also, I just hope our community can handle a world with no player leader that is elected by the player base. I for one think it will be a good move and a very refreshing one.
I do believe that many egos maybe hurt, but hell, you can not make an outstanding omlet without cracking a few hundred egos along the way.
Personal opinion, egos should have no weight when it comes to the future of the house, our House.
Marik, the Free Worlds League is far more important than any member who may feel he or she should lead.
All that truelly matters is that we play together and be part of a community.
But hell, those are my two cents, you may think differently and that is your choice.
