So Pie and I recently had a conversation and this came to my mind and it was even something that he said he had thought about in the past.
One of the major concerns when joining a fam is that you are going to get stuck with inactive or bad/non team oriented players. The usual suggestion is to throw everyone in as an SS and then let you work with whoever you wanted as an Ally. The problem with this idea, is that there are a lot of people that simply do not like the SS playstyle and lack of specialization that you get inside of a family based system (bankers, ressies, attackers) and their race setups.
I suggested that a solution could be that when you join a Galaxy that you are given control of 3 empires (1 account) inside of your own family and then you can choose who you would like to align with from there. Maybe even having an ingame setup where you can have a maximum set of allies. This would mean you never get stuck with a bad teammate unless you are that bad teammate or choose one as an Ally
Thought? Whats good? What’s bad? What should be added on?
