Well strongholds is another failure for small average skilled clans. Build everything up in skirmishes and get [redacted] by the big clans. Not wasting my time or money on this concept. As usual it will be clans such as VPA, DPS, BALLZ etc controlling the map. Wonder how long strongholds will last. Looks like my evenings have become even more free.

Poor tim.

 

 

 

 

 

If the big clans want gudfites, they fight eachother. :/

Why seal club against teams they know they'll win against? Its akin to dropping a baby.

one of the options of reducing the chance of getting swooped should be driving an M60...

I believe it actually increases the odds of being swooped by 237.21%

I found this on wankypedia

Well it ain't a waste of time and resources as every small clan can still win stronkholds especially if cooperation and a good strategy can be created.

Luckily, the M60's snorkel protects the crew from magpies, unless the magpies have learnt how to copy penguins.

I get the time bit, but how are you wasting money? The game is free to play, no?

 

Too bad it isn't Monday, and you got sanctioned Magpies. Ezz always talks about how he misses you, but it does look like you've brushed up on your engrish and grammarz.

 

Oh and no offence to DPS and VPA, I'm sure they love being put in the same league as BALLZ. :popcorn:

DPS totally dominates the sandbox CW scene. We steal all the mad goaldz without even placing chips.

Well, back to what I think the OP was referring to, it bemusing for a clan like TCM, where we can play 1000+ Tier VI skirmishes, and none at Tier X, but we have to defend our SH at Tier X. 

Also the lack of information before this latest patch came out, and the *cough* content light *cough* video which didn't seem to contain anything except rather nifty looking footage... meh. 

I'm not in a position to make a comment on behalf of TCM as a whole, but if we don't continue putting effort into this mode, I'll go back to seal clubbing at Tier VI playing toons at tiers at which I'm more comfortable.

 

tl;dr Apart from the lack of Fog of War, this just seems like a game mode suited to the needs of CW level clans.

 

EDIT: OK, Just stumbled across this. Nice to see. Might have been of more utility for us before we upgraded our HQ to Lvl V.

Since I posted the above, we've done exactly that.

 

I'll be curious to see how SHs pan out in the medium to long term. I've got a subjective view, namely that they'll just become a default faux-CW, for CWesque clans, but I'll be happy if I turn out to be proven wrong.

Funny, then dont upgrade your command center to lvl 5. If you want more bonuses then earn it and fight in tier 10 or else just continue camping in tier 6 with your fellow campers and sealclubbers

Yep, you can upgrade everything to tier IV and just enjoy the stronk games.  If you want more however, you need to be able to perform at a higher level.  WG isn't going to give out high end rewards for no effort after all.  Also given enough time, I think the higher end clans will focus on attacking other high end clans because they will be able to potentially earn more from the higher level structures.  Thus it will eventually balance out.
