When an alliance is prepared to take part in an alliance war, they will enlist the alliance. This basically lets the system know that the alliance is ready for the matchmaking to begin searching for an opponent for them (once the matchmaking period begins). The alliance must remain enlisted to be a part of the matchmaking system. The only way for an alliance to become unenlisted is for the alliance leader or one of the officers to manually cancel the alliance’s enlistment. If this is recognized prior to the end of the matchmaking phase, the alliance can re-enlist. However, the later in the matchmaking period that an alliance enlists, the greater the chance there is for the alliance to not find a match.
Is it recommended that the leader and officers discuss the alliance’s enlistment procedures to avoid any miscommunication or accidental de-enlistment. The best strategy for alliance war victory is a thorough one!
