Any event will have someone at a disadvantage. Especially events like this game where grinding wins every time. I'm being punished for not being able to play 12-16 hours or more a day and not able to compete with the numbers the top players do. Does that mean they are punishing me by making it too long of an event? Doesn't seem fair huh.

 

Guess it wasn't designed to give everyone the chance of winning.

 

P.S. I also stated that this was a team based game, not just 'multiplayer'.

Disadvantages while playing the game, not just being unable to play 12-16 hours because you're an adult. If you cannot play 12-16 hours a day due to real life, that's fine and respectable but there needs to be balance within the game and not based around variables the Developers can't control.

My idea for events would be something like; The fastest annihilation time/ fastest cap time, (or even most total kills as a team after match ends) but the reward would be team based where all 10 players would get 1st place to promote more teamwork.

 

As I said before, you choose to be at a disadvantage in a team based game if you want to solo (especially if you don't want to support or play as a team and are off doing your own thing). I also think that match making should group parties against each other first before adding solo players to the match.

 

Currently the game has become less strategic and more zerg/unbalanced stacking anyways. Not sure what else they can do until they patch issues.

Hi guys!

 

A couple of updates regarding the Warrior Trial missions.

 

1. There is a bit of a delay with the results for Mission 3. Those results should be going up tomorrow; apologies for the delay!

 

2. There will be no Warrior Trial mission this weekend. We've been listening to player feedback on the previous missions and are re-working the upcoming missions, partially based upon that feedback.

Sweet. I am sure you're already working on one but an in-game progress tracker would be sensational.

Hi wwolfvn,

 

The idea was to focus on some of the other aspects that make up a battle, in the same way that there have been missions that focused on only kills or damage or base captures.
