Why?

 

Don't remember that last summer there was no need for the increase? Even the CW is not on...

Excellent! Someone might have cared half a year ago or so before you killed off the whole game mode.

Yeah ofc, it's summer's fault if skirmishes activity is going low, nice joke :trollface:

And why only for Tier X skirmishes? Why not also for Tier VI and VIII? 

Again the elite of players get their bonuses as opposed to others.

If you want to have a chance go buy Defender by yourself and don´t search for people who already have one.

And what about the War games, still unavailable for half an year? Maybe because During summer, it's always a bit more difficult to do our job, as well as during winter and spring?

Yeah, SH is struggling only due to it being summer. It's nothing to do with your terrible handling of it and, in fact, all organised modes at all - don't you fret WG.

The activity of a clan doesn't relate to eliteness. This could actually greatly help clans that are trying to become bigger, because they can play tier 10 SH now without needing alot of people online. However, I wonder what kind of awkward situations this could lead to. I mean: what if 9 unicums decide to join the skirmish of a low-level clan?

 

Also, I don't remember clans having as much activity problems as today. I think it has something to do with Clan Wars being neglected. I don't understand why it is neglected so much, it used to be the flagship game mode for clans and many people enjoyed it.

Actually those clans don't even play skirmishes in tier X. Just look at the clan SH stats of that guy, he's crying but they don't even try to play. And I don't think this kind of "help" will make them play tier X anyway.

Maybe they froze the Global Map so people would play a bit more in SH, so they can say "Hey look, Skirmishes stats are rising this month, our SH changes aren't total failure".

Actually, I think SH isn't a failure. Especially the advances give you an extra opportunity to seek a challenge. However, I see SH as an addition to CWs; something you can do when your CWs are over (or before they start). It should not be the main gamemode for clans. CWs should be running all the time, in sandbox mode. If they want to run something else, like Ranked Battles, parallel to it, that's fine. However, they shouldn't freeze it. People should be allowed to make their own decisions on what they want to play. You're not forced to play CW.

People aren't playing T10 SH because there's skill MM which gives 6 minute queue times, not because they haven't got enough people to play with in their clan.

Also people are not playing Tier X SH because advances are way more profitable and have less waiting time in between the battles.

Aside from advances earning more another problem its only for tier x and not all levels.

Can someone confirm this for me though? A legionaire earns nothing for the clan he plays with..so if they have 9 of them they get next to nothing? If so thats mental ...Also the legionaire earns nothing so whats my motivation to join a random clan to help them out and make enough players.

A legionaire should at least get their share of resource allocated to their OWN clan..That way guys in a clan who cant be on with their clan at certain times for a bit say for work reasons can still actively contribute to their own clan AND help keep the mode afloat AND increase interaction between clans

Cheers mate-that clarifies my badly phrased question! Half is still crap though and it still should be all 3 tiers

The problem is Clan Wars isn't attractive anymore. At some point it was better to spam Skirmishes to get Urgents Orders for the 1k golds mission than to play CW. But well, you already know that too well according to your thread about CW's demise.

 

Yes, Advances are a good challenging mode if you want to fight opponents from your level and get shitloads of boxes. But the most rewarding part of that mode was never implemented (Wargames) and it took like 4 months to launch new Wargames test. What kind of logic is that ? 

 

Also, skill-MM in Advances, I can see the point and I agree with it, but why in Skirmishes too ? With absolutely no counterpart ? Before the update you had to wait 10/20s to get a tier VI skirmish, now it's up to 2min. 

 

Also yeah, freezing CW because "Hey, it's Ranked Battles month" is retarded, but I guess that's what you get for putting every mode on the same prime time, truly genius ! :teethhappy:
