Just wondering is there a link to what they have changed, if anything since the last clan wars?
has the clan adding members thing been sorted?
do they even acknowledge that this win boosting is happening and ruining clan wars?
just wondering cos right now clan wars is just pointless and boring unless you enjoy boosting.
The only thing that has really changed is the app. There have been 2 updates since the last war. Now you can see how much capture points each node is worth. At least that's what I've been told as the map is not loading for me since the app update on the 18th. At the start of the Oahu clan war the news feed announcing the start of the war listed things that they changed, but the announcement for the start of this war said nothing.
There are no details on what has changed. They didn't tell us anything that changed in the blog post they made. I believe you are still allowed to add members and they will still count. They have not acknowledged (that I know of) that the win boosting is happening but I'm sure it still is. My clan is not boosting and are currently in first place but I suspect we will not end up in 1st by the end of it...
they updated the app... it now doesn't work on more phones and tablets.
some peoples apps now show the cp reward for taking a node
they changed the time it takes to earn cp for holding a node by lowering it to 12 hrs (unless they didnt and thats broken too)
they fixed one exploit that allowed clans to get easy wins
They didn't address the fact clans boost
they didn't address the flaw in their scoring system
they didnt do anything to counter clans adding people
they didnt address the fact clans of x size are matched with clans double the size
they didnt add a report button so its possible to report cheating clans
they didnt add a list of rules so clans can cheat as there is no rules
they didnt fix the issue of getting untold clan applications you cant remove as they dont exist
I will confirm the following from your list:
Regarding your last point about no rules, they are still tied to the same TOS for the game which prevents boosting and some of what they are doing is boosting. It may not be individual boosting for your own XP or patches but instead on a clan level but it is still boosting and taking advantage of the system to boost your clan...which I believe is still against their TOS.
I should note that they did add one "feature" aka "bug":
besides what has been mentioned and disputed above. The only major change is that your clan is awarded 1 capture point for holding a territory between 4-6 hours. Last clan war it was 4 capture points awarded for holding a territory for 24 hours.
well my clan has held two territorys for two days and have not received any capture points yet ?
so basically what everyone is saying is.....they made a couple of changes nobody cared about and gave the community who play the game the middle finger in relation to all the feedback we have given them in regards to recruiting during clan wars, the scoring system, the size of the clans we are being placed against and the boosting we have all been reporting to them....nice.
Way to go!
erm yea...think ill find a new game to play, thank god i havent bought the season pass
Well that is a bit harsh, some of the things fixed were probably some of the smaller and easier things to fix, and very logical to add (like showing how many CP for the node in question, which is great). As for some of the bigger things they probably need more time doing this. And for some suggestions, like not adding clan members during the war, are we even sure they want to do that? I mean, recruiting to your clan is something they want us to do (I think it is dumb, don't shoot the messenger).
They have been open about that this is an ongoing process, and Oahu was better than LA was, and Caracas is better than Oahu was. I for one am digging the Clan Wars and it has made Ghosts an even better game for me.
You should ALWAYS be able to recruit for your clan. Here's how it should work (IMO):
