Hello Everyone -
Promotional authority has long been a sticking issue for certain leadership positions, both due to the coding of independent houses as well as the simple inability for clan leaders to promote all Equite ranks. In theory, this is forced checks and balances, but because the MAA staff reviews every request regardless we prefer to open up the system more than at present. Less rules are better.
First, the removal of independent houses means cleaning up of the CON-PCON-QUA-AED scaling to make sure that they scale. EQ4 is the highest rank attainable with only clan activity, so it makes a logical maximum for clan leaders. We wanted to allow AED through PCON access to everything below that. Regarding medals, much is the same (CON/PCON and QUA/AED authority) with the removal of Emerald Daggers from everyone except the Grand Master and Deputy Grand Master.
These changes are meant to A) Adjust to the renewed clan system while B) Adapting to some common complaints and making the system more efficient from an MAA perspective.
UPDATE - we have also removed the "cannot promote beyond your own rank" rule
Please take a look (all leaders) at your current rank and medal authority. If you think your position merits more access, please contact me explaining what and why at [Log in to view e-mail addresses].
