Diamond/Platinum Empire -
Cause - We got some new players in the empire and he used to launch Nuke without asking anyone, created lot of trouble and sometimes lost few wars.
Action - warned several times and finally removed him. he joined back and never launched nuke again.
Not following calls is one thing, at least they are in the war and doing some sort of damage. Don't get me wrong, it pisses me off when I watch war log, and see somebody join as a sniper and start hitting the 15k shielded warehouse. I have gotten over getting mad about that though.
Stealing packs is another thing though. I am not an empire leader, but if I had a member who kept doing that, they would get 1 warning, then the boot.
I think a lot of drama comes from people just being in the wrong type of empire. Wether it be being in a empire that isn't active enough for you or too strong for you. If you're looking for a more laid back empire that's not asking you to drop all your tokens taking defeats on a defender than you probably shouldn't be in legend or high ranked diamond empire. If you get frustrated because you're having to constantly carry your empire because a lack of actives and stronger toons than you probably need to find a higher ranked empire. I figure with so many empires out there you can definitely find one that fits your style of play. If drama is brewing it's probably because of a bad fit between people and expectations on how a empire should be. I reccomend not getting to overly concerned about it and just play happy
