Hi i would be interested to know how many of you would like the option to quit the Alliance permanently? I myself found the KOTET/KOTFE experience very underwhelming and would really love the opportunity to either disband the Alliance or Resign as commander. Id like for my characters that played those two really nonsensical expansions to realize the error of their ways and get back to basics. I think im going to try posting this on a few different threads because if there isn't going to be an option to do any of the above im either going to be forced to delete roughly five toons or simply never play them again. If someone knows who i should be asking to make this happen please let me know. I have no wish to be rude but the KOTET/KOTFE expansions must have been made during a writers strike....

NB
I find it almost rude to think that we are supposed to believe the content of those expansions...the total lack of plausibility behind the so called "Alliance" is just the tip of the iceberg.
I'm really hoping that im not the only one that finds this to be so.

there is no option to quit the alliance you are the leader of the alliance and only the writers of this game will give us the option to quit the alliance. Wouldn't be surprised if we are the leader of the alliance for several more expansions. I for one quite enjoyed the expansions and the idea of the alliance, all of my characters have no problems with the alliance or leading the alliance

If you skip the expansions and get to lvl 70 and choose to go straight into Ossus, the game will automatically make the choices for your characters in the expansions as if you already did them from what I can see

Advice: do not do this. If you decide to ignore my advice, you risk getting forum sanctions, anywhere from warnings all the way up to a permanent ban.(1)

(1) I could refer you to the thread on the GW2 forums where someone made a similar threat/promise, and got an immediate and publically-declared forum suspension for it.

It's highly unlikely that they'll give us an *option* to quit. It will be all-or-nothing, to reduce the complexity of writing the content that follows.

You 'quit' the alliance by having nothing to do with them, and skipping past all the alliance-related material.

I would have liked it if they had given us the option to apply how much you like or use the Alliance, kind of like the fort in NWN2. So in addition to the other bars you keep track of, there's a separate bar that tracks your connection to the actual storyline. The closer you cleave to being the Galactic Alliance Commander, by doing AAs, by raising the Alliance Specialist's Influence, the more perks you get, whether that means having a slightly easier time with difficulty on Vet and Master, or missions unlocked by having higher morale, or something! How Lana and Theron see you, for example. It wouldn't matter then if you were LS or DS, if you were going to be Emperor or Space UN, as long as you were following BW's aims. Though it would work better as LS Space UN, as these things usually do.

So alternatively, what happens if you don't do any of that? Use the alliance as a way of cashing in command crates, doing missions or sending comps on missions that give quick bang for your buck at the expense of the alliance, ignoring AAs or picking undesirable outcomes [like keeping Skadge alive]. Lana and Theron's interactions with you change as they realize that you aren't the savior of the galaxy after all, you're just some smuggler they stupidly pinned their hopes on defrosting who wants to get back to running their criminal empire as quickly as possible. Here the story might change to be even easier on story mode, as Arcann realizes you're really not that much of a threat. Again, it works better as DS, as these things usually do, but it doesn't HAVE to.
