- Green dot: Alliance
An Alliance pact signifies two clans are allies and work together when possible. Most clans reserve these for clans they have a tight relationship with, effectively ensuring they can easily identify folks they know and can trust.
- Yellow dot: NAP (non-aggression pact)
A Non-Aggression Pact (NAP) is one of two types reserved for "friends". Many clans use the NAP as a starter or "Training Wheels" pact before establishing a regular pact with other clans. This method gives each side the time to check each other out before making a stronger level of commitment to each other. Some clans use a NAP as a stand-down measure after a War or DOW. This makes it easier to keep an eye of folks that used to be a problem.
- Red dot: War clan
A Declaration Of War (DOW) or simply War Pact, makes it possible to kill own company members in clans the clan has significant issues with. Using a DOW (War) removes the Honor penalty for own company kills. A DOW or War Pact should be reserved for those situations where all other diplomatic efforts have failed. Wars over minuscule issues only dilute the effectiveness of a DOW as a diplomatic tool.
