Well, this is a topic that needs to be discussed by the player base. So I figured now's a good time as any. I initially wanted to start a Suggestions thread regarding this, but wanted to gather the players' opinion(s). Let's start by taking a look at our current rules regarding kage holding.. Kage-Holding: As a general rule, moderators will not intervene in Kage matters as long as the Kage is reasonably active, fulfilling appropriate Kage functions in a timely manner, and engaging in ordinary gaming/training such that normal challenges from users in general are possible. No Kage is obligated under the Rules to be popular or likeable, act in their villageâ€™s best interest (as villagers see it), or accept specific challenges from individual players. If a Kage must be removed for appropriate reasons but is not in violation of any other rules (e.g., trolling), a perfunctory ban may be issued to remove the player from the position, but no other penalties will be imposed. And we have our rules regarding fair gaming as well: FAIR GAMING All users are expected to play the game fairly and in the spirit of good sportsmanship. Cheating and other unfair gaming practices may include, but are not limited to: hacking, scamming, account sharing, account farming, statistic or kill farming, and Kage-holding. Players participate in unfair shortcuts and practices at their own risk. Relevant rules and policies will be interpreted by their intended purpose, not by textual limitations. Loopholes and technicalities (e.g., getting real-life siblings to claim to â€œownâ€ illegal ryo farms) will not excuse users who act contrary to the spirit of these Rules. Now these rules for kage holding can be extended to clan leadership as well. According to the rules, kages are not required to be liked by the villages, which is fair in my opinion. Not everyone can be liked by everyone. So we'll just skip to the next part of the rule, kages need not accept challenges from individual players. Now this one right there takes the whole point of fair play and sportsmanship out of this feature. In my opinion, when we call something as fair gaming, then everyone should get the a chance to explore and enjoy all the basic features in the game. Kageship is basic feature, open to anyone Jounin+. As per the current rules, whoever takes the village/clan leadership first gets to keep it for as long as they want, which frankly puts a dent on the whole point of fair gaming that we emphasize and borders on abuse. It's only fair that everyone Jounin+ has a fair chance at becoming kage/clan leader. And by fair chance, I don't refer to hand over the leadership as such. It just the users getting the right to challenge their current leaders. Now, we might be able to figure out a few possible solutions for this, which you can post here. I have posted a possible one here, just to get things started. A possible solution? We can limit the number of times a kage/clan leader can decline challenges posted to them. We can keep the number of challenges that a leader can reject down to, say, 5 per week. We can also maybe introduce a timer, which runs down the time within which the leader has to respond to a challenges. For example, let's assume the time for the responding to the challenge is 60 mins. If the leader hasn't given a response (accept/reject) till then, the system automatically takes the response as a rejection. So if the leader, has already declined 5 challenges that week, he would not have the option to decline a 6th challenge. And if he/she doesn't respond to that 6th challenge before the timer runs down, they will be automatically kicked from their position. The main idea is that, as long as a player is strong enough, he/she should have a fair shot at becoming a kage/clan leader. So, let's get started. P.S: Keep the discussion sensible. No flames.
