Yahaxathonix and I had a brief discussion on Siege this afternoon regarding the process of voting for a faction's Commanding Lord ("CL"). I told him I had some information from a few years ago describing the process, but I'm not sure if it is still accurate. I haven't been active in factions in quite a while now. Can folks please take a look at this and see if it looks accurate, and if not, what's wrong with it? Thanks. To become a CL, the character must have a faction rank of at least 6 or be the current CL. [To be in rank 6, you must have at least 70% of the faction's kill points. If you have at least 10 kill points, you lose 10% of your kill points (rounded up to 1) each day; although it appears that at this time atrophy is hitting everyone who has any points.] Election cycles normally last 9 days and consist of three sub-cycles: a 5-day "election pending" period when no one can vote or run for office; a "campaign" period when up to 10 eligible characters can choose to run for office and that normally runs for 1 day but will go to 2 days if no one is running; and a "voting" period that will last for 3 days but is skipped if only one candidate ran for office. A rule change made a couple of years ago (along with the change to allow multiple characters from the same account and on the same shard to join the same faction) limits votes to one per account and the voting character must be at least 15 days old. Is this information still accurate? Also, does anyone know how the winner is determined? Do they just need a simple majority of the votes? Also, what is there is a tie? I found a post from a year or so ago where someone asked this and JC thought that in that case the current CL just continued in office. Thanks, all!
