Congratulations. Alliance wars is officially dead.
And hey, I gave you the benefit of the doubt. I thought to myself - “sure, I’ll try them out before panicking” - hmm, who said that again? And boy oh boy was I wrong.
That’s it. Enough is enough.
No more improvements. No more additions. No more modifications.
Undo what you’ve done and give us back our playable game mode.
Get rid of these improvements now before everyone quits the game mode altogether.
The way I see it, this whole entire season is a throwaway. The scores from this season are all going to be so much lower than our previous seasons that this one simply won’t count towards most teams scores, even if you were to just revert your changes back to before season 3 started. The gear crafting system hasn’t been handled properly anyway, so I for one and more than happy to see you completely strip all the changes you’ve made in the last two weeks just so we can have our playable game mode back.
Get back to the drawing board and finish drawing. Stop giving us draft versions. The game was working and fun, so in future if you want to implement these “game changing features”, my suggestion, nay, my plea to HHG , try testing them in a closed beta first. I think this all could’ve been avoided if you’d just asked 6 teams to try them out in a beta and provide some basic feedback.
This has gotten out of hand.
Problem 1: stalemate. Need I say more?
Problem 2: size. Either the maps need to be bigger to the defensive zones smaller. Pick one.
Problem 3: improvements. They aren’t. Cost too high, effect too low.
Problem 4: scoring. Say goodbye to your big numbers. And bragging rights. We all know it’s just about the bragging rights.
Problem 5: interest. I’d easily say I was one of the more excited players when this mode was released, and have been ever since. You’ve absolutely killed that in me and I have no doubt many others.
Problem 6: lag. Lag. Lag. Lag. Lag. Lag. AND MORE FRAGGIN’ LAG.
Where’s my gold star for not swearing…
I think I’ve outlined everything, if there’s anything specific you want to mention, please do. I’ve started a new thread to make it purely an “AW season 3 negative impacts” page and not a general update discussion.
I want to put this to bed. Now is our chance to inform the devs if you’ve also had an experience like this.
