Since stronks don't impact your w/r then no - this mode is not for you.

 

Multiple skills on crews, experience at calling at Tier X > gud fites at Tier X

2nd skill grinding on crews, minimal experience calling at Tier X > roflstomp.

 

OMG. I'm agreeing with JOC. I think I need a Bex and a good lie down...

But which jimmehs?  Personally, I couldn't give an airborne simulated exchange of genetic material for the resource points. But I'm not sure that I really need to bled credits and gold to play at a tier that we rarely collectively play at. I play to get better, to increase my DPM, Kill/Death ratio, and WR. Not sure that this mode will achieve that for me.

 

So you don't care enough to post about it??

And this may be a bit difficult for some here, but some people play this game, for the sake of playing the game. For hanging out with mates on TS, and taking part in good battles. This is a hobby for most of us, not the way we define our lives. Personally the bonuses, meh. But given TC's are a grave yard, that leaves us TBs and skirmishes. Oh, or getting roflstomped by clans with ten times more Tier X tanks than us, and a player base that is used to playing in CWs Special Battles. 

 

You said it yourself, then don't upgrade your command center if you just want to play the game. But if you want to have more bonuses then fight, if not be contented with the bonuses provided in level 4 buildings.

I want to play end of game content even if I only have 500 WN8/1 T10.

 

If you want to compete it's pretty simple. Grind more T10s or learn to play this game better.

OK. I'll try restating this. And try to consider this at a server community level or even at a social clan level. Telling me that I have to improve is not the issue here*; 

 

There is a very active portion of this server which plays actively in CWs. All the more power to you. You've all spent time and effort playing this game, and you've all managed to garner the skill set to do so. And yes, most of those of you that are involved in CWs are much better than the average player. And, call me sidekick, but you all generally prefer to play in and against teams that are of a similar standard. There is no challenge in seal clubbing, yes?

 

As far as I understand, WG and/or WG ASIA want to encourage more players to make the effort to improve their skills at the game, as well as putting the effort in to get higher tier tanks. The current state of affairs has a disparity between the general player base, and those that play in CWs. I don't know what the stats are for WR etc for Battle Tiers VI-X, and I'd be curious to see what the attrition rate is for players leaving the game once they reach those tiers. But, AFAIK, the aim for WG's community managers is to decrease that rate of attrition.

Spoiler

 

*Yes, it's an issue for me, and one that I'm working on. Some of you have given me good advice in the past, and it would appear that some of it is sinking in. I've still got some bad habits, but hey, WIP.

The problem is that people ask for more than what they deserve.

 

If you want free gold then be competitive in clan wars, and if you cannot then be contented in landing zone battles or don't attend clan wars at all.

If you want more bonuses in stronghold then be competitive in stronghold, and if you cannot then be contented in the level 4 bonuses or don't do stronghold at all.

 

It is fairly that simple.

All of the information regarding Strongholds has been available since Common Test Patch 9.2, and in fact, members of COAF and other clan leaders/members were invited into the CT to test SH mode, they were also invited in to test SH on the latest patch.

 

The Dev said from the outset that you needed lvl5 to attack other clans, and that lvl4 and below would be instated from patch 9.2 until ? (well patch 9.4 it turns out)

It was also clearly stated what the attacking requirements would be, and that was UP TO Tier 10, 

 

So if in future there is a new mode you are interested in, then follow the blogs/developer notes etc, instead of waiting till it is introduced, and then saying it's not worth the time/effort

Comment was not directed at you Minion, more a generalised statement.

Just get annoyed that some people always expects things to be just given to them, whether it be gold, credits or other freebies, they are unwilling to go find the info, or worse yet, can not even be bothered to visit the forums regularly to get updated info.

Oh well, my rant over, see you all on the battle field

It's pretty clear to anyone who has put more then 5 seconds worth of thought into it that the battle tier for stronkhold attack/defend battles should relate to the tier of the stronghold being attacked.

 

T5-T6 stronk : T6 tonks

T7-T8 stronk : T8 tonks

T9-T10 stronk : T10 tonks

 

The current system is patently broken as it has misaligned risk and reward.

 

I'm gonna give WG the benefit of the doubt and just assume there was an issue in adding that tiering feature and that it will come asap...

This was my thought on the matter as well. Typical WG though, endgame=tier X mentality is fine for CW, but if youre trying to make a more inclusive mode, youre going to need to allow for degrees of skill.
