So I don’t post much on forums but I do read them daily. The negativity has killed me. Topics that are valid concerns constantly get drowned out by nonsense. Everybody hates this and everybody hates that. I am sure by now there are enough tickets in where PG knows the current issues. Here is my suggestion on how to fix this game. I know full well the negative feedback this is about to get, but here goes.
put war dragons offline for 24 or 48 hours.(this would be announced weeks in advance) Use this time to clean up game code and release a “master patch”. or whatever. During this time all teams get wiped from all atlas castles.
soft start in new version whatever whatever, while atlas is down. no teams have atlas access. teams who wish to have atlas applies and will be granted access by team rank(only thing other than members that stays with the team)
- top 1000 teams or whatever gets atlas permission. they are sorted into leagues by rank away from non atlas teams.
-each team must join a WD guild. for argument sake lets say 50 guilds (each guild has a different game banner identifying its alliance) so guild A has a red banner and team B has a blue banner and each has a max of 20 teams (replace 5ta) everyone of the 1000 teams will be paired. A period of 48 hours is given for all teams will be sorted into a Guild. Teams will autofill guilds after the 48 hour period if they do not select a guild. each Guild has the same advantages as current 5TA do. Remove passage list from forts. after this each team is randomly assigned a castle within a predetermined guild territory. after a short wait, atlas begins.
-when a team disbands from atlas a new team is pulled from non atlas league by same process as above at league reset weekly and is auto filled into the vacant guild spot.
- Teams will have a chance to change guilds between events at predetermined intervals (monthly weekly whatever). If they do not find a new home they will be autofilled to empty spot.
-guild ranks rewards etc replace team rank and rewards within atlas
example of new league structure:
ATLAS Dimond rank 1-400 Sapphire rank 401-1000
Non Atlas Platinum 1001-3000 Gold 3001+
-non atlas teams can not move up to sapphire, even though team rank is higher (ya ultimate sandbagging I guess, but there are players who don’t want atlas)
-Non atlas league has increased timers in league rewards to compare to 1/3 of atlas average (or something somewhat balanced)
Feel free to throw this idea down hard, but games ive previously played have done similar things to great success. Sucks to start over, but I believe a new beginning is in order
have a good day
