While in the application process you MAY NOT start any wars, if you do so you will be denied.

We expect activity out of our applicants. If you go more than 24 hours without answering a question you will be rejected.

What made you want to join BK?

I understand about the wars. Not to worry I have no intention of starting any.

I received several invites to join many different alliances. Upon reading through them I found I like the feel I got from the letter of invite I read. Upon looking at the site I felt I might fit in here best. Black Knight looks to be a good group of folks who work well together, and take into consideration who they take into their alliance. Some alliances take anyone willy nilly. I'm not really interested in an alliance where I'm just a number. I want to belong to a group where I can help them build, and improve, and be part of something bigger then just a horde of people spinning in circles.

Yeah, we try to put what's best for the alliance first, which will make it more successful, which in turn means more benefits for us. Thinking long term like this is always better than thinking short term (just taking advantage of the alliance).

 

Have you played games like P&W before? If so, which ones?

I am familiar with Discord yes. Username is Dawnharrow #3180. I am normally very active in game. I will read through the forums looking for any information and tips on how better to play the game. Discord I like to interact with my fellow alliance members to get to know them and build rapport.

You should see a link that says "Discord" at the top of our forums, which will take you to our public Discord channel.  Feel free to pop in and get to know some of our members.

We have an academy for new members. It will help you learn more about the game, and how to grow your nation efficiently. Are you okay with doing this?

Select one of the following, or use your own words, to best describe what kind of member you will be:

  1. I would like the protection and economic benefits that BK offers, and I will fight in wars for BK, but I don't really want a job or to be particularly involved.
  2. I want to be moderately active in the BK community. I will post on the forums and hold a job.
  3. I want to be extremely active in the BK community. I will frequent the forums and the discord channel, and would like to work my way up to a leadership position in the future.
  4. I'm just here so I don't get fined. (raided)

I would love to say 3. But alas my time capacity for playing will limit my ability to do so. Now, that being said, depending on how much time is in fact required for being a leader, and frequenting the forums etc, I might be able to facilitate that.

So, if time allows I could be 3. If not, most definitely a 2.

BK is a meritocracy, so we like to reward members who contribute to the alliance. That being said, we have several entry level positions to choose from. Do any of these sound interesting to you?

  • Communications Staff - some design graphics for the alliance and possibly writing articles for our paper.
  • IA Staff - the Internal Affairs department has several positions available based on rank. IA Staff is the entry level position where you can start working yourself up. Duties include: contributing to the activity of the alliance by posting discussion topics and coming up with events, assisting leadership with the applicant interviews, recruiting and doing other random stuff.
  • Diplomat Corps - the public face of the alliance. Diplomats represent the alliance in other alliance forums/Discord channels and are responsible for reporting weekly to the FA Office.
  • Defence StaffDefence staff are responsible for ensuring that BK performs the best it possibly can militarily.  They are responsible for helping our members meet their defence commitments, ensuring that raiders are promptly countered and for making sure that everyone is doing what they should be doing when war occurs.

IA staff would be best for me I believe. With the time constraints I sometimes have, Defence Staff, although my preference, would not be ideal as I am sometimes 12 hours before I get back online. Whereas reviewing applications and answering questions is less time sensitive.

 

As far as Communications Staff goes, I have 0 skills with make graphics. Writing articles I could do. I have a few published works under a pen name.

 

Diplomat Corps sounds plausible, but without knowing more about, I am not sure. I think I'd need to know more about the game and the various alliances/treaties we have first.

"Ours is not to question why. Ours it but to do or die."

 

That being said, this is indeed a game. I'm not going to do something illegal.

However. A superior asks me to do something, I do it. If I don't agree with it for personal reasons, I keep those to myself. My own reasons are just that. Mine. They have no place in the military. 

I follow orders, but I don't believe in being a robot either. Unless what I am being asked risks lives unnecessarily, or is wasting limited resources carelessly, I won't ask.

Follow the order of my direct superior. If neither is, follow the order of the highest ranking officer. If both are the same rank, split my squad into 2 and do both orders. Presuming the remaining manpower would allow for success.

If only one mission could be completed, then I would pick the one that made the most sense, and gave our forces the best benefits and/or had the highest strategic value.
