“If a Faction Leader dies, leadership will be transferred to the 2nd In Command (2IC). If there is no 2IC, it is transferred to the faction member who has the next highest privileges rating. If there is more than one person with the most privileges, one is randomly selected.”
What exactly constitutes "highest privileges rating" for this succession rule?
I remember reading once that the order of succession was Leader > 2nd in command > Random Recruitment Liason > Random Member
which is not in line with what is written.
But even if that is the case, I'm not asking it to be changed, but would appreciate a clarification of the de-facto way this works.
it counts the amount of privs each person has, so if there was someone with all privs but not recruit liaison and somone without any privs except liaison it would pick the one with most privs, so if 2 people had the same privs and one was a liaison the liaison would get it.
Recruitment Liaison is not 3IC. I'm not sure where that rumour started, but they are considered just like any other member in terms of their privs. They only exist as a simple contact for new players interested in the faction, not as an overall leader of the faction. They would still need to have the highest privs in order to take over the faction in case of no 2IC.
Not sure how the priv hierarchy is otherwise determined as it's never been thoroughly explained, but I feel like it needs repeated mention that recruitment liaisons are not 3IC, with how common a misconception that seems to be. -_-
I always thought it would be the person with most privileges, as in, Person A who has 15 of them gets it before Person B that has only 10, regardless of lvl. Would be nice to know for sure whats the case.
