As Drum pointed out, the game, and the leadership mechanic is made to be simple.
The sad fact is. 60 people that want to all play the game as intended is extremly rare…
when you bring the subject up in Alliance chat do you get words or action?
Most Generals are worthless. and yeah, they prolly the leaders girlfriend or grandmother. without a clue of war tactics, keeping the budget or anything there supposed to be doing. (like kicking out the pud)
theyll guilt you with words like “loyalty” but as you can see that loyalty only extends to leadership. as soon as you start asking questions like the one you posted, ull be outcast as a threat to there petting zoo.
just put your head down and try not to think too much about what the yellows are up too.
they prolly think there being nice keeping the unactive people. they have no idea there ruining the game.
The “rules” are all up to the leader. and ull find almost universally those rules all the same.
and never forget the unwritten rule. dont ask questions.
