Please remember that not all announcements, even from developers, are applicable to all regions. It's a really good thing to keep in mind that regional adjustments are very often possible.

 

However, in this case, the conclusion is the same for EU. We've taken your feedback into consideration and will leave 10v10 in Tier VIII Skirmishes.

 

I want to thank you all for sharing your opinions with us and providing very important arguments pro and contra (well, mostly in favor of 10v10) :great:

 

 

Not that I really care, but what about this new change, that mercs in tier 8 on the testserver are now limited to 3. Wasn't all this 7vs7 mess about that getting 5 players + 5 mercs seemed to be to hard for small clans, so now you decided to go the opposite direction and make it even harder. o.O

 

Also why is tier 10 now also 10vs10? :amazed:

Only during 14-22 button "create" is not disabled so you can't make skirmish after 22:00

Also, why "War games" are unavailable?

 

At the moment im on test server, and i can create team, but countdown is ticking untill 13.00
What the hell is going on? One hour rounds?

It isn't. Tier 10 stays 15v15.

War Games are time-limited competitions that are planned to be run every day (possibly few rounds a day) during daytime. Each round will last no longer than few hours. Most players can't play each day or even entire day, so very long duration would be very inconvenient for many clans, and would rather measure their activity during the competition period than actual performance.

What does "Daytime" mean ?

Isn't the peak hour between 21-23 Gmt ?

How about implementation of tier 7 and tier 9 detachments? I think it would be some kind of good solution. Like tier 7 and 9 are at the present time, complete waste, and they are not used for clan purposes. 

 

Like we could have option for detachments 

Tier6:7v7

Tier7:8v8

Tier8: 10v10

Tier9: 12v 12

Tier10: 15v15

 

 

Wg please consider this opinion, and do something with tier 7 and tier 9, in order that they will be more suitable for clan usage.

Good to know, this was/is just a bug on the testserver. But what about the changes to the amount of mercs. Are these also unintended or will they come in the patch? Also what about the reduction of the battle time for skirmishes to 10 mins. Couldn't find it in the patch notes, so that's also unintended or intended?

Any info about matchmaking in Advance mode?
What about reserves given to clan for upgrading Command Center. F/e, upgrade to V level gives 16x VI level reserves, and 8x VII level reserves. It's what test server shows at the moment. Are those reserves higher every next CC upgrade level?

Times available for skirmishes will be slightly adjusted. But you will definitely be able to play Skirmishes after 22.

We're talking about the current skirmishes or the new "advance" mode or whatever they call it ?

Times limit for skirmishes seems weird.  As it will be for randoms.

Currently we can play (meaning find enemy to fight) T8 sh from 16pm -to 2am .

And more for T6 sh.

Out of interest, why is this limitation necessary?

 

Please don't forget you have people on many timezones. I'm in the UK so even if you make it midnigh CET there's still plenty of people who would want to play Skirms here at 2300 our time. Also what about a weekend morning - why suddenly can't we play Skirms then?

 

T6 SH we've played at silly hours while drinking and had fun, so why does this need a control I don't think was asked for?

To be honest I'm quite surprised about those screenshots  or maybe I misunderstood them !!

My understanding was totally different

What I saw was

 

  9.17.0 9.17.1
Command Center

Upgrade 7 -> 8 : 12,000 boxes 

Upgrade 8 -> 9 : 18,000 boxes 

Upgrade 9 -> 10 : 27,000 boxes 

Upgrade 7-> 8 : 105,000 boxes

Upgrade 8-> 9 : 210,000 boxes 

Upgrade 9 -> 10 : 450,000 boxes

Other buildings

Upgrade 7 -> 8 : 8,000 boxes

Upgrade 8 -> 9 : 12,000 boxes

Upgrade 9 -> 10 : 18,000 boxes

Upgrade 7 -> 8 : 62,000 boxes

Upgrade 8 -> 9 : 127,000 boxes

Upgrade 9-> 18 : 220,000 boxes

 

Am I wrong ?

Just browsed through this and ... time limits for skirmishes ???

 

What weird and demented purpose would that serve ?

 a) ensure people don't play too much ?

 b) "force" people to play other modes too ?

 c) vodka and reasons ?

 

Personally I could not care less, being in the EET timezone's 22 CET is plenty for me,

but a gaming company informing someone in portugal: "we would kindly inform you that we are closing the game you would like to play at 21:00. Time for you to go bed"

What does it mean?

 

And also very important question: last time amount of boxes needed for upgrade command center from tier IX to tier X was 450.000.

Now its 15.000 and this is actually less then currect amount. Can you tell us what is more accurate to final amount? Gap between 15.000 and 450.000 is veeeeeery big.

 

Should we except somthing around 20.000~ or rather 500.000?

It was in first test server. I posted screenshots made today, but change in costs was made within second test server. I guess after rage from russian players/clans, WG changed upgrade costs.

I doubt about this, now it's too easy to upgrade buildings

we're doing around 12,000 boxes a day, so it's too easy

I think the truth will be in between

Hoping it will be hard enough to avoid to have millions of clans havin amazing bonus

 

Even if we have info on the structure itself is it possible from WG to have a confirmation of the final upgrade cost ?

 

We're spendinh hours and hours currently to upgrade building, if tomorrow we can do it in a minute, we will stop it ! my teamates are out of order due to those 8-12hours a day of SH !!!!
