I'm a little disappointed with build up(hype) of new War features. Obviously it's not active imo, Battle for Empire City is supposed to be the marquee Event. At this point a lot of Participation is due more of obligations to your syndicate. Within an hour every Top 50 is scouted, so you click and tap for 3 now 4 days. Defense Stats have been a joke for 6 months now. There probably a lot smarter people who articulate these issues better then I, but please bring War back to being the focal of the calendar instead of the event before Epic boss.

It would help if they didn't completely eclipse the war prizes by letting people farm an unlimited amount of prizes from other events. Considering people got to buy 1-9 million attack items for 30 gold apice in a box event about a month ago, why would they throw up vaults of gold on something like this? As a ratio of gold/prizes, wars just aren't all that important. It's a pissing match to get your name on the winner's list, but that only affects about three teams at most.

This war, when I attacked and win, I can see results that include stats, cash (if any) and the "mysterious" bag...a brown loot bag with a question mark on it...please excuse me gree, but damn it! Do you want me to have to memorize my items to see what was added? Is transparency not in your pool of practice? 本当に 悪い な GREE!!!!!!! ><

Any loot items you get from PvP are unlikely to get anywhere near your mob, so don't lose any sleep. Bricks and Uzis are the only useful drops now.

Yeah. And they finally made the rewards right, streaks have the good mod (because they're a whole lot harder) and wins have the 3% mod. It's also easier to get steaks because you only need 55 wins in 4 days when it used to be 3, so more people will want to chase after them.

Farming is not the issue. You like to harp on it. All the other events weapons and mods led to building up for war. War has always been about ego/leaderboard rank

Weapons stats from war get lost in this stat inflation. They also don't need to be great, just like in pvp tourneys, about rank not weapons.

The mods used to be worth gold use. However gree wants to curb "mod inflation" for attack/def stats which don't mean a lot to most players. They refuse to release decent mods I would guess because it reduces gold spend.

It used to be the big event for players and gree. Don't know what players prefer now but gree prefers SA for better gold spend

I've kind of seen wars from all points of view. In a T400, in a T20, an officer in a T30, and right now in a streak syn. Wars used to be the perfect end to the cycle. You got a ton of mods that would get you pumped and ready for the next cycle.

That's if you're in a T150, though. GREE doesn't make it hidden that they could care less for anyone ranking out of that range. (But frankly, T150 isn't that hard. Any active player shouldn't have any trouble making at least 35k in battle).

I remember the short wars. They were perfect. 1 day to brawl out and you're done. Dump the same amount of gold as you would in a 3 day and you're ranking higher than ever before! Too bad they removed them.

But they completely killed it with the complete depletion of mods, which were the whole point of war, an over extension of time which makes wars boring and gold demanding, and duplicate prizes, which were just plain stupid.

They also don't give streak syns the prizes they deserve. There wasn't even a mod last war. The discipline and control you need to have in a syn and the sacrifice of lots of points (I have never scored lower in a war than I am now) in order to streak right isn't worth the 8% mod we're fighting for.

So I'm glad to see the old prize structure back.. just fix it for people outside the T150. And for crying out loud give some ip mods to everyone else. The T3 are untouchable.

Steak is the greatest. Blue rare filet mignon is just amazing, alongside a nice cold Boston Lager. Too bad you can't order blue rare in most restaurants and the drinking age is 21..

Also, blame my phone swype for the spelling errors

You have also viewed things from the top4 prospective I believe? What was that like? I'm curious just because the highest rank team I have viewed things from was the top20 prospective, and that's only because I had one of my friends cover me there.

I didn't spent a war in a T4, I spent 2 SA's in one, and no one covered me there

Long story short, because I don't want to bad mouth a syn on the forum, regardless of what they did, they booted me an hour before war. Oh well, I'm in SOC for now.

correct blaggard. a streak team is a team who successfully completes all streaks (11 in a row for noobies like you;)); SOC do not complete this and they say they are a "streak team" as a way of looking good to attract players. people should open their eyes a bit more; the blinding light caused by lies is causing a clear loss of vision (and frying what brains some people have in the process it seems....)

Max Power

Wars are just a way for Gree to use your peers to pressure you into spending gold rather than prize value. I recognized this from the beginning, so I refused to participate. I knew it would be an expensive slippery slope. I haven't even tried SA. Why bother?

So, for me, war was never relevant.

I have no idea aout SOC's history, but a syndicate shouldn't be judged based on it's past, because every syndicate goes through downfalls and drama and whatnot. But for clarification, streak prizes:

We're going through elite now. I don't think we'll make it, but for a 3% attack mod.. I'd much rather just push for rank.

I was disappointed in the building defense though.. which is next to worthless.

i would like to personally congratulate SoC on getting all streaks (55), that is the usual goal in a 3 day war, in a 4 day war (an extra 24 hours, just for clarification). remind me the last time you actually completed streaks in the usual allocated time of the classic 3 day war please? my statement is valid, and as dipstick says, a team who fails to get all streaks isnt really a streak team anymore, is it? my statement remains strong and valid; getting all streaks that is the usual target in a 3 day war, within 4 days is not a hard for task for an acclaimed "streak team" - in fact that should happen without concern or worry, and most certainly without the need to brag (lmao). as i said above, show me the last screenshot of where you got 55 win streak in a 3 day war, i insist, for this forum's benefit.

nor does that mean they are a rank team, then. SoC, like a few teams, are a streak/rank team. being in one of these teams myself (who do actually finish all streaks, and in a 3 day war, oh and then go on to finish top20/30, as SoC do) i am very much aware and familiar with these tactics, believe it or not. my facts are accurate and true; SoC are not a streak team as they fail to get streaks continuously. getting 55 in a row in an extra 24 hours should be a breeze for such a fantastic, amazing streak syndicate without the need to brag all of the forums lol

Goodison
06-01-2015, 04:55 PM
They just completed all streaks well within 3 days(war still had a day left) that same team you earlier proclaimed never get streaks. But please do continue rambling on like a Mad man with your well informed facts. It's normally wrong to point and laugh at the fool on his hill, but for you I will make an exception.
