Update - Jan 29th.

 

According to some of your discussion, here' s some more info about S7 rules.

 

Tier X front format will be 15v15, and Tier X vehicle only (no tier IX or lower)

Tier VIII front remains the same, 10v10 with Tier VII and VIII allowed.

 

Tank lock SHOULD stay the same as S6, 48 hours for Tier VIII and 72 for Tier X.

 

==============================================================================================

Hi Commanders,

 

Season 7 is expected to launch in early Feb.

We are finalizing map setup now, in Season 7, we will put more focus on the provinces instead of clan quests & leaderboard.

Here are some key points about Season 7:

 

1. Tier X - 15v15 & Tier VIII - 10v10

2. Two fronts - Tier VIII & Tier X (consist of high income and low income area) [Updated]
(A high-income Tier X front added In addition to normal Tier VIII and Tier X fronts, with revised Gold income structure.)
3. More provinces in Tier X fronts.
4. Removal of weekly & seasonal leaderboard gold reward.

5. Clan quests revised. 

6. Ransack enabled on Tier X (normal income) and Tier VIII fronts. [Updated]

7. Global Map geographic location moved to APAC.

8. Reworked influence points system (details below)

9. Revenue limitation (details below)

 

Reworked influence points system

Why: Influence points was originally designed to help CW-beginners to start playing on Global Map (via Auction etc.), and create revolt to stir things up, but it doesn't work as intended now.

1. Influence points will be wiped at the end/start of every season (starting from Season 7).

2. Clans will no longer be able to earn influence points from Stronghold.

3. Influence points can only be earned via landing province quests.

4. Influence points will only be used for: Make landing bids, increase/decrease unrest level on some provinces.

5. Other actions will no longer require influence points. (e.g. create a division)

 

Revenue limitation

Why: To avoid domination (regardless any reason) and encourage more clans to join on Global Map.

1. Clans will only receive revenue from 5 of the highest income provinces of their own that connected to clan HQ.

2. Clans can still hold more than 5 provinces to adapt to their strategy. (e.g. connecting high income provinces, cut off opponent connection etc.)

3. This rule comes with the introduction of high income province front, we will decide if to keep this rule in the future base on the result and feedback of this season.

 

And for the future, we are also reviewing following possibilities on Global Map:
1. Atk&Def/Encounter battle mode only. (replace standard battle mode)

2. Provide rental tier X vehicles (via missions or events) for Global Map activities.

 

Feel free to share feedback, questions or discussion under this thread.

I'm very much interested in this, rental T-22sr/Obj 268 v5/Obj 777 II pls.

Serious part though, is this idea being brought in as a way to help smaller clans? How would you stop someone from abusing it (don't know if it can even be abused) and do you need to spend bonds/gold/credits to 'purchase' these rentals? Also would it be limited to certain tanks?

A way to limit it could be based on elo rating or using the average#of 10s per player in a clan? (this metric is still used by wg still in clan rating section)

And i think limit the rentals to three mediums, a couple basic heavies (is7 or e100 for eg) and no arty. TDs im not sure about..)

I'm very much a fan of adding the attack/defend idea provided some changes are made. It should be only for the province battles and possibly extended to 15 minutes. Having that format in a 10 minute long battle in the landing tournaments gives an unfair advantage to whichever team gets allocated to the defense. In 15v15, all they have to do is not die and deny the other team from capping out in the time limit and they will win. The current format works fine for WGL as it's best of 5, not 1 battle and winner moves on like global map is. I know having attack/defend in the tournaments will eliminate draws, but I'd rather have a draw than lose a clan wars battle because the other team got put on defense and hid tanks away to reset and draw the battle out.

 

I think perhaps the rental tanks should only be the common few we've had before (IS-7, T-62a, AMX 50B) and maybe one or 2 other tanks and require certain conditions to be met before becoming available to players.
Thinking they should be available to those players with less than 5 tier 10 tanks all the time, and to those with 5 or more tier 10s but only after they have 5 or less tanks not locked. Perhaps a limit on how many rental tanks can be in a team should be put in too, maybe 5-7 tanks maximum, so no more than half the team can be rentals.

Other than that, I quite like the look of what's to come. Great work as always Mobius :)

If we were to limit which tanks can be rented, Arty and Type 5's would instantly be the first to go.

About battle types, I think,

  • the outside matches should be Encounter Battles - 2 forces try to cap 1 base
  • the final match with the owner should be ATK/DEF Battles with 2 base for defender to protect.

 

Why do ATK/DEF Battles should have 2 bases for defender ? To avoid spamming too mush super heavy tanks and camping. Take an example from Karelia map. If there is only 1 base, the defenders only spam 15 Maus, and how can you penertrate that Maus-fortress. 2 Base-ATK/DEF is used in Tournament and it works well.

Nice work limiting income/provinces earning, should help with enabling more clans to get involved.

 

Looking forward to this season

That's perfectly fine by me. Really, giving people 5 CW staple tanks on rental is the easiest option. IS-7, T-62a, AMX 50B, Grille 15 and maybe the B.C 25t? That's a workable list of tanks I think

140 instead of 62A, grille is not used pretty much at all. Maus is probably a staple but eww. 5A is a staple. Nowadays anyway. To make grinding an incentive though, that list is great. 

 

Add E5 too

I just suggested the T-62a as it's already a rental model so 0 work required there. The Grille is there only because I have no idea what other TD is worth putting in and I didn't want to put Maus or 5A in the list. Yep, made the list more... generic tanks to incentivise grinding and not just hand out the sought after tanks on rental.

 

Maybe can put the E5 in for the AMX 50B but eh, not my choice either

I'd rather not have the best tanks as CW rentals. Have people grind them.

Will there be any compensation for the currently grinded up influence points that might have been saved for when influence was truly brought back into play, like now. Although they are being reset.

 

maybe 1 influence = 10 boxes since you did get them from stronks before.

All interesting news - i'm especially keen on the battle mode changes as that should help limit the turtles.
