Also, there is one more thing - I am still in one war, which I cannot peace out (the opponent is inactive). However, this war is agreed on with the GoG leadership (see here) so there will be no counters. Also, I will finish this war soon (in approximately 14 hours).

If this is a huge problem, I can wait these 14 hours to finish the war and then reapply.

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 was thinking about this a lot, BK is clearly the most professional alliance in meaning of how the things are organized. At the same time, you have very experienced meritocratic leadership, what is something I like. Also, I had very positive feeling from cooperating with your members. Finally, talking about FA, I fully agree with the foreign relations which the BK hold.

That's alright.

Are you familiar with Discord? If so, what is your username and ID?

How active do you plan on being on our forums, in-game and on Discord?

I am familiar with Discord. My Discord is: Jan Orwell#7472

In-game and on Discord I am active at least 5 times a day, this can be little bit less during weekends (2-3 times). Talking about forum, I am not sure how well does smartphones work in here, but I will be active at least once a day, or more, should it be necessary.

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?

The academy will also tell you a little more about BK, so that you may know it better even if you are an experienced player.

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)

Okay. 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 Staff Defence 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.  
  • Economics Staff - Econ is responsible for maintaining and creating a budget to align with BK goals, building and maintaining a war chest for the alliance to use during fights on global or small scales, trading resources to help BK profit over time, and training with other new members of economics. Econ requires a bit more knowledge and people wishing to join will have to enter Economics University to learn more about the game's mechanics.

Well, there are two possible reasons: miscommunication - I would let both of them know that I got contradicting orders by them and ask what should I do, conflict in leadership - in that case I would let know higher officer about it.

I cannot say I was not waiting for this question! Well, firstly, I was in charge of whole IA with one colleague since our bank was stolen and the previous leadership left (I believe it was late April?). It was really a lot of work as we had our Discord nuked and we had to create everything from point zero. Although I had no previous experience with PnW I was suddenly member of the narrow leadership of the TOP10 alliance. It was really a lot of work but we succeeded - returned Pantheon back to TOP6 and significantly increased leadership. Also I personally designed and created whole Pantheon academy, etc. However, I got burnt out little bit as it was too much work over previous months. 

Secondly, I felt that things were not moving as quickly as they could and it made me irritated. I wanted more established alliance, with broader and more professional leadership from which I can learn more. I can explain this further, however I would prefer to speak on Discord in privacy.

Also, I hold no anger towards Pantheon, I have no debts towards it. Most importantly, I do not feel now any loyalty to Pantheon and I am fully prepared to serve the BK, should I be accepted.
