Meh, I can see value on both sides of the argument for this.
Elaborate on this, because at the moment it feels like a placeholder title for the war idol to fight for. Are these tokens usable by team members? Do team members have to pay into the cache? If so are you making players choose between new dragons and team wars and progression?
Pick your sides people of diamond 1, NMO or Dreadnaught, with 10 teams per team, 20 teams total, you will have Diamond 1 in perpetual war between these two factions.
New war model, ok fine, you’re modifying the original game, evolving a game is fine if done right i guess, wont please everybody but don’t piss people off and destroy your community in the process of trying to appease investors. Atlas does have potential for being a much bigger play ground with more to do, and more room for developers to mold and change to evolve the game for a long haul.
Elaborate on the specifics you have in mind
Good now diamond can’t just control everything and bully lower teams. Not sure it’ll work the way this is stated but the intention is good.
Ok was kind of inevitable
Interesting, but…FIX THE BALANCE BETWEEN THE OTHER CLASSES BEFORE YOU RELEASE A NEW CLASS OF DRAGON. Seriously don’t keep introducing new stuff while the old stuff is still unbalanced.
To quote Red "NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NON, NIET, DE NADA, NOPE, NUH UH, NOOOOOOOOOOO, GOD NO, NO, NO NO NO NO.
Ok beyond the spazz a whole tier not only made exclusive to certain teams
But also exclusive to certain PEOPLE. I don’t even know what to call this B*******, pay to win is one thing, but somehow, to my amazement you’ve managed to create a whole new class of rigged gameplay. Are you trying to see if you can take the title of worst anti-consumer policies away from EA? Trying to put yourself in the running are you?
On top of that, either this new tier will bypass the current tiers potentially making the original breeding irrelevant, OR its a tier beyond Obsidian. If it’s the ladder then you have to have your main breeding done before you can even use said prizes, and said prizes will cause even further issues. For example if you don’t release new tower levels to match them, then oohhh my we have literally an UNSTOPPABLE DRAGON, and if you DO release new tower tiers, OH SHIT there’s bases out there that CAN ONLY be beat by these specific players and NO ONE ELSE.
Finally vanity prizes
Speed=pointless now, speed boosters=pointless, choke points=pointless, alliances=pointless, trappers=pointless
Sigh, So basically atlas lets you opt out of the base game
Whats the point of even calling them tokens. If we cant spend them, then their point is completely different. if we can spend them then we have to make decisions on what we want to do, world wars vs new dragons. Do we have to contribute from our token stash? Does the fort produce tokens that gets sent to the community fund anyway(making it pointless to call it tokens)? So many questions on this massive part that you’re just glossing over like its no big deal, big clarification is needed.
Seriously how token rich do you think people are??? With people complaining about a sapphire wall of 600k tokens to clear the tier, and you want to institute a 100k token war prerequisite. Seriously what are you people smoking in that office(share please)???
Lets do the math for everyone shall we. 20 Teams, 20*4=80, 80+base(36)=116h. Translation a 5 DAY WAR!
Incentive to burn through everything you have because losing is a big loss;buuuuuuutttttt…WINNING IS A BIG COST TOO
Big Incentive not to lose
Even if the contribution isn’t even
But alas I digress, the main issue I see is you’ll get one BIG WAR, then poof everyone is SOL. Either you put everything you have into the war, or you risk losing a shit ton of tokens and league points. But even if you do win, your forces are DEPLETED, meaning ALL your land is now in jeopardy, lets say all of diamond 1 dives into an all out war with each other, and puts everything they have into it; oh here comes Diamond 2 to clean house, take land and screw over everyone who participated. Or Diamond 1 is forced to BUY massive amounts of troops to counter this. But this is just a war of attrition, not just of troops, but of allies, tokens, and real world cash.
All I see is a blood bath where no one wins, everyone loses and PG profits (Cough War profiteering Cough)
Evidence is speaking to the contrary, either own it and figure out how to do it right, or stop cramming base game features into atlas, and adding atlas features that undermine the base game.
So you cant spend, only contribute.
Agree, rant aside communication is good, even if the messenger is taking a few bullets.
Fix the existing imbalance between classes first.
Which will completely screw any sense of balance you could ever hope to achieve in a game.
DING DING DING we have the major factor that will screw everyone evenly.
Do you seriously expect a team to remain the same for what 50 months? 50 seasons? 50 wars? With resentment, and a clear divide in player advantages you can’t be serious. Hell even 10 people at a time, 5 months? 5 seasons? 5 wars?
Then you need a full revamp on your thought process behind how to do this.
You don’t have to do war to take advantage of a blood ridden corpse post-war.
But you’ll still open the door for “ringer” teams to be created that can manipulate the outcomes of these wars, the same way you have “ringer” players in the existing war mechanics.
Ok I have to sleep now so (part 1 of (no idea how bad this is going to get))
