    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

Some interesting changes. Note the modified clan position/title changes are mentioned (and linked) in that post also.

Those tier 9 and 10 rewards o.0

 

I was under the impression that premium content (or gold at least) was not going to feature in stronks. Wonder why they changed it?

Oooh, those shiny gold rewards... definitely worth doing the missions for them!

I don't think they are that worried. Those missions with a 2 hour timelimit won't be easy to achieve. Is the mission assigned randomly or do you get to pick or are they all active at once?

 

Also, can you even get a tier 9/10 war department yet? Last entry in the update indicates that everything is still capped at 4.

So is someone going to make a mercenary chat channel?  For people that want to join other clans strongholds? 

 

Or is there a different way it needs to be setup?

I don't follow the logic of some of these stronghold changes.

 

"Industrial resources earned by legionaries will disappear."

This is a big disincentive to inviting legionaries to your detachment imho.  They should have been re-distributed amongst the clan players, or at least half should be.

 

"In update, 9.3 a balance of credits income for skirmishes have increased:

  • Medium division: +10% of credits per battle.
  • Champion division: +5% of credits per battle.
  • Absolute division: +15% of credits per battle."

​Good they they have upped some skirmish rewards...  Utterly baffling that they gave Medium more of a boost than Champion?

Who would bother with Champion?

No mention in those notes of the RP increase for Absolute?

At a guess they probably worked out what the net CR economy of 6 and 8 stronks and worked out 6s needed more of a boost. And or it's a typo.

Do you need to be clan-less to be a Legionnaire? Or can you be in a clan and join another clans SH?

 

If that's the case, can a clan member join a SH as a legionnaire with another clan, and end up in a battle against their own clan?

Or that people were found to be using prem 8's and already making a lot of $$ from it.

Who knows, have done several tier 6 and 10 stronghold battles, but the battle timer has always timed out in the tier 8 option.

From what I've read, I believe that you can only be a legionnaire if you are not in a clan.  Can't confirm as I'm no longer in a clan, and I don't yet have 9.3 installed.
