A little late on the announcement isn't it?

 

Maybe for the next season a bit earlier? Like one or two weeks earlier? Thanks!

EU times are moved from 19-23 to 18-22, meaning that people who work for their living will have less time to play.

Also the Storm steel reward was reduced by 500 and the Hurricane reward increased by 500, in a move to discourage average players from playing.

 

Thank you WG for making CBs all about that 1% of all clans and not about the clan community as a whole.

This ^^^.

 

And pushing more clans out is the way forward for WG then, fine. 

 

1800 hrs?!  Yeah great work WG, do you discriminate against people that work for a living or have a family? FFFAAARRR too early. 

 

and thanks for telling us now just before it start. :Smile_facepalm:

 

And i'm trying to stay positive here!

Anyway chaps....Good luck with your Russian ships and premium/steel/coal ones. :cap_like::cap_like::cap_like:

 

and sorry for those clans that struggle with finding 8 players (with reserves) and having to settle with the peasant rentals.

There are several different prime times to choose, which are covering most hours between 17:00 CET and 5:30 CET.

Many different players got many different schedules, some work late, some come home at 16:00 CET. This time-frame is by far the most active on the EU server (18-22 CET/CEST). Obviously, this can never be true for all players and since we have the prime-time selection, even clans who e.g. have lots of shiftworkers, should have an easier time to take part.

 

CBs are rather competitive and we are trying different formats from update to update, sometimes depending on feedback, sometimes depending on stats (e.g. activity of players) and often it is a mix of both. But overall, the whole point is the competitive nature, so CBs will likely never be for the 99%.

This is an empty argument. Anyone who is working a fairly standard job from 8 AM to 5 PM won't be able to make any other time but EU.

Most of my clan mates work these hours and I'm pretty certain if asked, most players who work would confirm that they can only play during these hours.

As of now you are actively discouraging people who aren't Hurricane level from participating, with the lessened rewards, changed times, and bigger team requirements.

Not.   18 UTC means 19 local time in winter time. From October  27, winter time coming. And UTC is +1 in winter time, not +2  as currently.

It would be  better  for me 18-22 local time, because of   when i working  morning better.

In the UK it's now UTC +1.

 

On Sun the 27 Oct the clocks go back to the same as UTC, which means it's STILL 1800 hrs.  6 o'clock is far too early for the majority of British People.

How about you move it to 1900 hrs instead? So 8 o'clock CEST? 1900 -2300 isn't late at all really if most active is 1800-2200? Only an hour out and you will get more people involved from the UK. 

 

If the UK player pop isn't that much then fair enough having it as it is.  But speaking on behalf of the British Isles, move it forward an hour please. 

 

People don't even finish dinner at that time!

Why is it 8v8? It's hard enough to find 7 players.

 

It will be more challenging and fun, but I agree 8 is too many, not really to find the Alpha team, but to get 2 teams playing? 16 people? Ouch, that it's going to be hard. Many casual clans will have a hard time this season and even if we are more structured, I don't like it one bit.

Thank you for keeping it 6-10pm for people from UK, i personally think 7-11pm is too late, and 5-9pm.. well most people in UK dont finish work till 5pm. My only grumble for this season is the 8 man teams. Some clans may struggle to get many games in with 8 man teams (getting 8 people online, who can do clan battles, at the same time). Next season please think about reducing this. Oh, also.. 48 hours notice for the article release ? Please, next time, give us more time so clans can prepare (min 1 week please).

maybe WG plans to force members to be online more or get kicked. Add to that fewer clans but more activity is the only goal here it seems.

Why do i have 3 stupid clanwar ships in my port - If you dont have the right ships to play clanwar, you dont participate.

WG make that funktion to hide unwanted ships to work again. It have been working before and its no problem to make it work again, just ask your programmers OR SACK THEM.
 

ATM 3 clanwar ships + 6 halo ship, all just filling up to my anyance. :Smile_facepalm:

8 you said. We were struggling to get 7 last time due to summer, often having to get new players with rentals as a fill ups resulting in frustrating experience for all involved, now with 8 it may be too much for us to even participate despite of autumn weather. We are not a small clan, even if potato a bit, but if you want to restrict CB to a few storm-hurricane clans no problem. Why did you even bother with gale and squall leagues? To get more clans involved? Well, now you've succeed for sure.  :Smile-_tongue:

At least no CVs. :cap_like:Because of reasons I assume. With a reeeework proclaimed as finished and a huge success of balancing department and with overwhelming enthusiasm of the whole player-base confirmed by spreadsheets why have you left such a success out of competitive game mode?

Strange that WG seem not to want casual clans to play.  8 regular players is too many for the casual clan.  We played most nights last series but this series we are yet to get enough CB players for a division.

 

Why bother with the lower leagues at all this time.

Hi!

 

Actually we increased rewards for the lower leagues if you compare season 5 & 7 (Tier X):

 

Squall League:

  • Season V: 15x 80 Steel = 1.200 Steel
  • Season VII: 20x 100 Steel = 2.000 Steel

Gale League:

  • Season V: 15x 120 Steel = 1.800 Steel
  • Season VII: 20x 100 Steel = 2.000 Steel

Storm: League:

  • Season V: 30x 100 Steel = 3.000 Steel
  • Season VII: 25x 100 Steel = 2.500 Steel

 

So it's actually quite the opposite from what you are claiming - yes Storm got reduced, but more Steel was shifted towards the lower leagues. Typhoon rewards were reduced from 135 to 100 Steel (30x) and Hurrcane raised from 100 to 150 Steel (10x). So overall a better distribution of resources across the leagues.

 

I'll already forwarded your feedback regarding the publication of the info and moving this to an earlier date in the future to give you more heads-up. Regarding CB times, I'll check internally what we can do.

You shouldn't have bothered, made a "male donkey" out of myself. There's a second post where I mention it. Misread the announcement.
