Sometimes it’s not possible to run the combine as CEO. Sometimes it’s the best decision for the combine to step down as CEO. You can appoint another CEO by promoting an existing member of the combine to the rank of CEO, which will reduce yours to Executive Officer. To do this, you must visit your Joint Ops Center, then the ‘My Combine’ tab. In the Associates section, locate the member you wish to promote, and then click their rank icon with the green chevron box. Choose CEO and confirm.
If or when the time comes you wish to merge your combine with another, there are a few steps you need to take. Soldiers Inc does not provide an actual combine merge functionality so you should do the following steps. First is to communicate the change with your commanding officers. A combine memo should be sent out as soon as it is settled with your commanding officers. The message should be honest and explain the situation in a way that informs the members of steps they need to take, if any to stay onboard. As with any business merger, there will be people who agree with the merge and people who disagree with it. It may not be possible to make everyone happy. If you are using a Facebook group page, the page should be updated with a pinned post for all the members to see, with the steps that need to be taken, if any. Try not to alienate any members as these members could potentially bring your command methods or tactics to the enemy… troop numbers, strategy or internal documents, etc.
Note: Any Mining Complexes will lose a level as they are transferred, any Depots will not.
Disbanding the combine will involve removing all the members individually. Finally, you must remove yourself to disband the combine completely. Any held assets will be released and reoccupied by the Zheng Shi, and Mining Complexes will be downgraded one level.
