    New frontline scoring poll.

    Nice and simple: should we continue to go with new frontline scoring where you can only capture your own control points, or revert to the previous version, where you can capture control points from the opposition.

    depends. If Gree can find a way to stop teams from using mini teams to feed them points, than I'd love to see it revert back to the old scoring.

    But I'm guessing Gree couldn't find another way, which is why we are in this place now.

    And Gree will not ban teams that are using mini factions to feed them points because some of those teams are Top 5 in every event and spend a LOT of gold.

    So if this is the only way to stop those who like to skirt the rules, I'm all for the current system

    In my view feeder teams made little difference to 95% of factions. This is like abolishing goals in soccer because some teams were using an offside trap.

    with the new boosts, winning nodes is now a moot point anyway, except for faction win goals. Most points now come from boosted wars, not stealing nodes.

    Depends where you are... Lots of factions without boosts.

    The new scoring system has completely ruined FL reducing it to a tapping and gold exercise. The tactical, decision and team coordination elements have all gone. In my view, the old system should be reinstated, and even make control points an even bigger factor increasing the incentive to capture nodes.

    Feeder teams, if that really is why the scoring was changed, were a very small element affecting a few top teams. And to be honest, if a team can be bothered to go to the effort of creating and playing a complete mini faction for a few extra control points, then good luck to them. There are teams cooperating all over MW. Whats the big issue?

    Who cares if teams want to use mini teams to feed. Everyone could do it if they want. Besides the top teams already spend all the gold, it's not going to change our ranking.

    It never ends.
    It lives.
    Its just a silly game.
    Nothing about the game matters.
    Why obsess over it?
    It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.

    SPEND it, if you got any left.

    We already have an event based on gold only (WD). Was nice to have an event that is not only based on gold (FL)

    I dont care about who feeds who. Doesnt make such a difference on the leaderboard in the end. I cant imagine it's the real/only reason for changing the system.

    On the other hand it's gonna be interesting to compare leaderboard between old and current systems: It will show which teams are only good due to their gold expenses.

    WOW, so the only reason now to steal a node is just to complete factions goals, otherwise it is poinless

    that is why my faction has only been hitting 1 node in all battle

    oh, well, another event that GREE............GREEs-UPS

    Not to mention that on IOS games crashes with every deploy, so you have to log in the game at least 4 times in order to use all your 250 deploys in one battle

    helping other factions is one thing, but when a team skirts the rules to help themselves, it's a problem.

    Anyone who says "it's only a small amount of points" doesn't understand how some top teams were abusing the system. Before they locked FL, when teams were moving minis in and out, one team nearly took the top spot. It causes honest factions to have to spend more to defeat those who skirt the rules. using mini factions to feed their main faction points was a HUGE problem.

    Just look at the leaderboard now, several teams who have been top 10 for months are now in the 30s or lower. How much extra gold did teams have to spend to stay ahead of those using mini teams? How many honest teams lost placement/rewards because of those skirting the rules?

    I hate this FL format too. Ruined the event. But I'd rather have it this way than be playing against teams who think of every and any way to skirt the rules.
