I logged on to the test server recently and found that back in Sept 17th, my alliance was disbanded. There’s only 3 people who have the ability to disband the alliance through roles and we did not manually choose to disband on the test server.
I’m assuming the alliance disbanded due the Alliance maintenance bill autopay feature being disabled by whatever recent changes have been implemented. While I can easily recreate an alliance for the sake of testing on the test server, I am very concerned this “feature” might go live in November when the next patch day is due. This is not the first time an autopay function has been tampered with during a patch, and I would appreciate it if CCP could acknowledge they are looking into it.
