A Hero Band is considered "abandoned" by its leader if the lead character has not logged in for at least one month, and the leader hasn't indicated that they will be on an extended absence via a Notice.

If a band member requests leadership of an abandoned Hero Band, we will attempt to contact the leader, and transfer leadership if we do not receive a response within ten business days.

If multiple players attempt to claim leadership of an abandoned Hero band, we will adjudicate on a case-by-case basis.
