I wanted to add that I was also referred by two people in your alliance. They're both knights as well as staff and they've been helping me learn the ropes since I started playing.

They also happen to be long time friends of mine in real life.

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

You must read every single question carefully. DO NOT simply skim through the questions.

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 recommended by the two knights and staff members linked above. They're both veteran players and spoke very highly of the alliance, and I'm very interested in the community. I'm very active and I want to develop my nation into a powerful military force. 

A strong military alliance with spicy memes sounds too good to be true.

I can vouch for him, since he puts his focus into the group and game he will be a good fit for BK. He is receptive to criticism, and reacts accordingly for the better.

BK STROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONK!!

You should see a link that says "Discord" at the top of our forums, which will take you to our public Discord channel. Additionally, you can use this link here: https://discord.gg/KnTusXA. Feel free to pop in and get to know some of our members.

We require new members go through a university. It will help you learn more about the game, and how to grow your nation efficiently. Are you okay with doing this?

Thanks for the link. I went ahead and joined the Discord and took a look around. Yes, I'm more than okay with it.

BK has reached the top by having a strong community of active individuals. We expect high levels of activity from new members in order to ensure strong performance. We place the alliance above self, and in return we make sure everyone is taken care of. Are you okay with this?

Of course. I'll do my best to meet any requirements needed.

I'm fortunate to have two close friends who are also established veterans in the alliance and P&W, and they'll also be ensuring that I stay on top of things.

BK is a meritocracy, so we like to encourage and reward members to contribute to the alliance by getting a job in a department. We have several entry-level positions to choose from within our departments. Which sounds the most interesting to you?

  • IA Staff - the Internal Affairs department has several positions available based on rank. IA Staff is the easiest 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 other activities as you progress. IA staff is the backbone of BK, and your hard work becomes the basis of our community. Join this if you want to have a lasting imprint on the culture of BK.
  • Diplomat Corps - the public face of the alliance. Diplomats represent the alliance in other Discord channels and are responsible for reporting weekly to the FA Office. Join the FA staff if you want to represent BK abroad, and increase our external prestige.
  • 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 specialized knowledge and people wishing to join will have to enter Economics University to learn more about the game's mechanics. Join Econ if you want to make BK more prosperous, increasing the size of all BK nations.
  • Education, Development, and Optimization (EDO) – EDO is responsible for ensuring that members have optimal builds and are complying with alliance-wide resource and military mandates. They additionally help mentor new members. EDO is also responsible for visual graphics and ads that we use to broadcast our alliance’s message to Orbis. If you are interested in making BK stronger from within or producing propaganda for BK’s cause, EDO is for you.

Each one sounds tremendously interesting to me. Is it possible for someone to have a job in multiple departments?

If not, I'd say that while Education, Development, and Optimization (EDO) sounds like the most interesting choice for me, I'd prefer to start with IA Staff. That way, I'll be able to work my way up before ultimately going into EDO.

BK expects growth out of its members and provides generous grants to members to do so. Are you willing to be active enough to apply for what is essentially free money to help grow your nation?

Growth is what I'm here for, and I'm prepared to put in sufficient time and effort to carry my weight.

BK runs a command economy and military. Our success comes from teamwork and sacrifice. You may be ordered to attack a target larger than you or build a city in a set period of time. What would you do if you disagree with these orders?

I don't foresee the aforementioned examples ever creating conflict, considering I'd have the alliance backing me up. I feel like I'd be willing to go through with those orders even if I disagreed with them.

The only circumstance in which I'd outright refuse an order is if it required me to go against the rules of P&W and/or BK, in which case I would likely report the person as well.

I suppose the easiest course of action would be to inform the two officers that they've given me contradicting orders. Alternatively, I might make a forum post about it here and invite them to the thread to clarify.
