Alliance Level

Does the alliance automatically level up when the gold donation mark is reached or is it done by leader or generals? In other words can an alliance not level up even though donations are met?

Thanks

Generals or the Leader have to press a level-up button manually.

Yes, an alliance upgrade must explicit by done by a general or leader.

As long as you don’t level up, players can still donate, the surplus is just added to the alliance treasury.

Appreciate info, thanks.
