Albion Online plans penalties for large Alliances
Albion Online has been struggling recently to deal with huge Alliances and the imbalance in gameplay they cause. Their initial thought was to introduce a hard cap of 300 for Alliances, this was met with a lot of backlash.
Instead, the new plan is to introduce penalties for larger Alliances and those who hold a high number of territories. Income penalties will apply tom all members of Alliances that hold more than 10 territories. There will also be an upkeep introduced based on the number of territories controlled, once beyond 20 territories this actually reduces the global energy output, once beyond 30 territories then it costs more in upkeep than you get out.
You can read more about these proposed changes, and the feedback they have already received, on the Albion forums.
These changes are tentatively set to go live around February 26th, in time for the next Invasion day.
