I’m not quite sure if this has been mentioned before since I haven’t been reading the atlas forums for long and I couldn’t find much in the search bar.
Here is my issue, is it fair to throw new teams to be placed into the same region where the more establish teams are?
My team is currently sapphire 3 with a small alliance of 3 teams (also in sapphire and we each have 1 castle lvl 2). Yesterday our small alliance got attacked by 3 diamond teams, they caught us by surprise but no big deal, our shields went up and we were safe for a bit. We notice they kept coming to the safe zone next to us so we knew shit was going down xd.
As soon as shields went down, a bunch of primarchs from about 6-7 diff diamond teams started coming in. We were heavily outnumber and out-level, our allies were also getting hit so no help was coming. Long story short we somehow manage to survive by keep re-spawning and sending our primarchs to their deaths while buying time for our shield to come up again. (Was it fun? F*** yea it was)
In my opinion this is way out of balance, and is the reason why some sapphire teams have no choice but to buy land from diamond teams and pay them w/e they ask. Every expansion should come with their own region, there is no reason why teams who got atlas a month ago should have to compete vs teams that had it from the start.
This was much longer than intended, but hopefully it brings some perspective of what newer/smaller alliances have to face.
