Leadership

SOL is traditionally run as a triumvirate, with 3 Heads, 1 for each department (War, Foreign Relations and Internal Affairs). SOL`s 3 heads are often referred to as Reds, due to the color of their nick insite.

Each department has a commander, the commander is the Heads 2nd in command. These 6, make up the SOL HQ, but the executive powers rest in the Reds

The Philosophy of SOL

What do you want to Achieve in this game?

Our allies to know they can count on us, and for us to know likewise. SoL members to feel the high level of comraderie present within SoL, for those members to enjoy their stay: for the fun of a good war, or at the very least, to feel as if they came away with a better understanding about things in general (better communication, better strategy, organization, structure, discipline, sense of fair play).

SOL as one big Family. A Family that has a many members who cares for each other as they care for themselves. If one member get hurts, the whole alliance suffers and if one member benefits, the whole alliance rejoices. I would like all members to feel they are equal to each other and the only different is the role they play in our big family.

SOL home to Anybody who is willing to be part of our Family, Abide by our code and put 100% efforts, no matter who and what they are.

SOL measure its decisions on the best interest of SOL and the opinion of many not the opinion of few. At the same time, to trust leaders to make a decision during the time of need and war and discuss it after any war is gone and threat is diminished.

SOL family members fulfilling their duties on their own, without having others telling them to do so. If members come short in their duties, then I like to see other SOL members helping them understand the importance of their role and the effect on the whole family.

Leaders to set the example for members -- faster to review their own work before asking others to do theirs

Everybody in SOL know exactly what they need to do before worrying about what others do.

Chain of command work from top all the way down. Exactly the same way from the bottom all the way to the top with no special treatments.

SOL one big community where everybody has a voice and everybody share their thoughts: all members to know that their opinion matters and without it we lose the building bricks of the foundation of our alliance. The more we lose, the weaker we are.

SOL treat other alliances the same way they want to be treated. SOL stands for its members against all odds and as long as it is only in fairness and justice: to be known for its fair playing and just treatment of others, small or big alliances, with no difference.

SOL Code of conduct is reflected in every aspect of SOL Family. SOL action talks much louder than their words.

SOL as a value and way of playing is reflected in every SOLer code of conduct.


Why is SOL different from other Alliances?

Other alliances strive to win, but forget to understand that the path to victory is just as important as the victory itself. Ie, not only are we achieving victory, but complete victory, victory along the path and at the destination.

Other alliances ask you “ what was your last NW and how experienced are you? What?? You've never played the game!? Go to another alliance!“ SOL asks, “Will you be an active member in our Family? And you understand what this means?? Welcome!!” Other alliances would boot you out if you do not pass a specific NW, SOL will ask you “what can we do to help you better your country and be a stronger part of our Family?”
