Why this change? East and West has 6 Hero Slots, Pirates only 3? So people must now vote for special People instead of the 6 Heros they wants to see in the Slots?

Edit: And its rly a change nobody asked for or?

You previously could only vote for 1.
So yes you vote for the 2 people you want to be a hero and lead for your nation. Not 6. As voting for 6 has lead to a situation where 1 group is capable of taking a large number of heroes. Rather then people voting for those they think has earnt the spot

Technically you could vote 9x on all chars if you maxed out slots, right? Before that got disabled.
Correct. Which also lead to heroes getting elected by single groups voting in who they want and not who has "earnt" it.

Were the changes in kick vote and hero vote made to help the same people who systematically deny content to others, and prenvent someone else deny something to them?

Regarding the vote kick changes:
Changes were made to avoid manipulations with the vote kick system from the players side and abuse of it.
Recent examples is Golden Plains Battle when players were kicked from the event the moment it just started, meaning without even breaking any rules they had no way to even try participating in the event.
Same situation and multiple complaints we received for the Red Dragon instance.
To avoid 1 big group affecting the situation that much and more turn it into the faction choice, the threshold was slightly increased.
And complaint that you can't unreasonably kick players from the event anymore without even giving them a chance looks strange.

As for the hero vote changes:
That is mainly the same - 1 big group could control all the hero places by voting from the same account for 6 players, this way without giving others a chance. If new model (voting for 2 only) shows bad result, it may be reverted or changed.​

Vote Kicks:
yeah but we asked this to be changed for ages as it happens the first time then it was a "player made problem" and nothing did happen now it looks like it, if it hits some people you try to change thing in a way that they get statisfyed. And so the Question stands in the Room why now and not earlier as it was Requested?

Hero:
And now the Big Groups can Vote there 2 Heros at the Highst Rank, what only turned the Problem in another way and not solving the Problem. With the 6 Votes you could vote 1 to 6 People at the End.

I don't think I got many complaints about unfair vote kicks until the last few weeks or so. Maybe you spoke with another admin about it but that's not something I can be in charge for then.
As you remember during 6.1 (and that's exactly when the system was introduced) I was taking a time off and returned back just recently.​

It wasn't asked to increase the % requirements. It was asked to entirely remove the kick system.

The stance was we were not removing the kick system. Which hasn't changed. Nothing about increasing its requirements was ever discussed.
