Is there any reason, why the time of beginning wars and events is so bad for some (or many) players?
Why there is no way to determine the beginning of wars itself? E. g. the attacker wants to start the war at 2p.m. CEST? Or at 10a.m. JST?
Why there is no random times of beginning the events or of the wars, if there is no possibility to determine the time?
In my oppinion, this leads to a bigger fairness and satisfaction of many players (of course, I don’t know the number of players outside the US and whether it is worth the effort - maybe 80% of the players live in this time zone).
Put yourself in the role of the defending team:
War begins for YOU at 2am. YOU are sleeping because next day YOU have to go to work.
YOU wake up, looking at War Dragons - "Uhh, a war! Let’s see!"
YOU check the opponent, look what YOU can do for a good ending.
YOU are attacking an opponent and got the base.
YOU take a deeper look into the war - and see nothing good.
Every good/high base of YOUR team is taken with no resistance.
YOU see: “Argh, there are just small fishes in my team (it’s YOUR team) to get attacked!”.
YOU realize that the war is over and lost.
The answers are clear:
- time factor ‘attacking team is attacking’ (it’s quiet easy if the majority of YOUR [defending] team is sleeping in bed)
- time factor ‘defender team’ (when almost nobody is on [because YOU/YOUR teammates are sleeping] there is no resistance)
- time factor ‘defending team strikes back’ (YOUR [defending] team is on, but the attackers are, too - more resistance in the attacking flights of YOU/YOUR team by the aggressors)
- defending points (when there is nobody on to defend YOU/YOUR team, there are no points for YOU/YOUR team - when there are some players of the aggressors it’s quiet harder to take a base successfully; the possibility to fail an attack is even higher, so that there a many more attacks needed for 250 flames - but that’s no longer of interest because YOU/YOUR team have too few points)
One employee said:
I mean honestly I think war start time is unfair for people in some regions
My suggestion is to put a period of time between declaration and start of a war. And 10 hours (e.g.) seems to be fair, usually everyone is awake (6-8 hours of sleep) or end of working day (in approximately 8-9 hours).
It is also possible to explain the war to the opposing team at an unfavorable time.
