What is the purpose of having someone as an ally now. You can't produce wraiths anymore unless you have people in your Friends list. Allies don't count anymore toward wraiths like they did on kabam. So I am confused now as to what is the benefits of having someone as an ally.

I mostly use the "Form Alliance"  as a means to create a "Truce" with another player who is not in my league, this helps me avoid raiding them by mistake because it says

Also an Alliance suppose to have these effects "Reinforcements and Caravans travel faster between allied Castles, and Your Counselors will get reports about your Allies' actions."


But I have never received any so called "reports"...


hope this helps... yeah I do agree they don't really give any major benefit

Solidarius,

maybe you need to change your herald settings to get the reports

I found it useful to share reports with my allies to share farms (ie: raiding castles) 


I also added allies to keep an eye on them when they were hitting ally leagues too often so I could keep them out of trouble lol

The Kabam portal did not allow any friends so plarium were forced to increase the number of allies there.

We don't actually 'need' any allies now, just 70+ friends
Friends should also give extra free relic storage slots and castle expansions


The Herald setting are broken in many plarium games, as is the brethren court/embassy
I switched all herald settings off because it can generate a ton of spam - http://prntscr.com/egqnty

Friends get the same speed boosts as allies for caravans and troops. 

The reports will show up in herald tab, not grand marshal tab.  However, most people turn off this feature to prevent others from watching their reports to spy on them. 

Any opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily represent the opinions of or constitute official statements by Plarium.
