Many players do not have a smart phone or if they do it may not be compatible and thus are unable to chat with your clan and are unable to view anything going on in regards to the Clan Wars (aside from the modes you have already taken). The game doesn't specify which target is your primary target and since they don't have a website for these details, much of your clan is likely not helping out as they are really quite clueless about anything related to clan wars. I'm trying to rectify this for some clans. Here's how:
I've recently updated my site to allow your clan to track it's progress in the clan wars. Here's what you can do in regards to Clan Wars:
1) Show what game modes are available to everyone in your clan via the website.
2) Show what your primary target is in the current clan war
3) Show past history for clan wars so you know the clans you played, how many CP you earned, and what rank you were.
4) View result data for each Clan war
5) Ability to use the comments for each clan war's page if you want to post messages for all your clan members to see (especially those without the app).
6) Ability to show off which Clan War Achievements your clan has unlocked (and those that are locked) including achievement details and images
7) Ability to track which division you were in for each Clan War
I'll likely be adding some more features soon as well, but this is a good first step.
If you are a clan owner and are interested in utilizing this solution, let me know (via a comment) and I'll get you more details on how to use this system. I'm trying to provide solutions for clans that go above and beyond what COD is making available via their app (which is a bit too limited IMO).
that seems like a good idea considering the windows 8 app for call of duty sucks doesnt let u click on any CP to check the scoreboard
This is an absolutely fantastic idea, would love more details - shame it's down to the most active forum member to come up with a solution and not the game manufacturer, nice job on this idea though
i agree with everyone. what a GREAT idea!!!! i also would love to know more about this. the devs have to be aware that we truly need a website because there a a few members of my clan that do not own smartphones/tablets.
the app is a good idea but a secondary plan aka a WEBSITE was needed for those without smartphones/tablets. this should have been a very simple procedure to put in place on the devs part, IMO.
LifeSong, i also sent you a private message, take a look when you get a chance !
I was looking all over for a clan wars website it would be easier to manage and surprised there wasn't one. Hopefully this will get some wheels turning because smart phones are nice and all, but I prefer to use my computer for things, makes it easier to manage and would be less clumsy.
I support these ideas. The app is useless for communication because I never see notifications when anyone sends a group message. I got them for losing and gaining nodes, but not communication. What gives Beachhead?
Great idea!! I am very interested in this and would like more information.
I dont know why you have to use an smart phone app in the 1st place it should be built into the game imo. A website sounds really good would be interested to see how it works.
Thanks for all the feedback everyone. I'll continue to add functionality that I think will be helpful. Having this type of stuff comes down to having a clan leader that cares to administer the data and keep it up to date. I've tried to make that easy to do, but there is no way to auto pull the data and thus it gets a bit more tricky. It really is unfortunate that Beachhead didn't create a website and only went to the mobile side of things.
