A rule caught us out last night and nearly wrecked our whole campaign. Why has the minimum needed per team to avoid a Tech gone from 8 to 9?

 

Do you expect us to be active or want us telling 9/10 guys to sit there waiting just in case an event happens we lack control over ie a sudden Tech win or a forced win.

 

8/10 allowed greater flexibility when shit happened ie suddenly had too many wins and forced into too many multiple battles. Fielding 8/10 is already a penalty and usually results in an instant win for our opponents BUT AT LEAST THEY GET A BATTLE.

 

On a secondary to this. This is a very short Campaign. Penalties should be 3 days not 5. Want us to fight battles or sit around doing nothing?

The minimum for CPs has been 9 for a 10-man game. Same as the previous CP ops.

 

15 man CPs has the - 2 instead.

I suspect they want clans to not waste others' time by chipping when they won't have the numbers.

Then again... How does one not have the numbers for a 10-man team... 

 

If the games are clashing then thats a chipping issue. Get better potato chips.

Have no intention of wasting others times. WE ARE HERE TO FIGHT. But shit happens, sudden tech win etc changes the scenery. We have nearly been knocked out on day 1 and it sucks.

Well aware shit happens - we were unfortunately guilty of it twice last night. But given the numbers pre punishment you'd have to have a lot of shit happening for actual punishment to occur... Or you're over chipping.

30 online and available People wanting games. You saying over chipping is getting 3 games Ezz? We should only pick 2 games and let 10 players sit around and do nothing?

It's not the campaign's fault,  it's the chippers. Pretty simple really.

Chip one team less if you're at risk of copping a penalty.

You are always at risk of a penalty so you think make 10 players sit around all night doing nothing to avoid this is the answer?

And I'll bet you have never run the chipping on an active campaign. Give it a try then come back and comment.

2 campaign's,  and countless amounts of clan wars seasons. It's a tough gig to please everyone in a clan but sometimes ya just have to play it safe to avoid strikes against the clan.

If that's the case then you haven't been doing it very well given the team provided to you and the amount of reward tanks won by 1AR (not won via auction). Live on the edge a bit and you will do better.

I ran the campaign's before the auctions  and 1 year 25 tanks and another 10 for a not the best clan going around. Not bad. You have 5 times the battles than me and have 3 reward tanks, most others in your position would have them all so pretty crap odds by u. In one of those campaign's I missed out by 15 spots by letting other members in cause I'm a nice guy. The moral of the story is though, it's ya own fault if you can't chip properly,  not War Gaming,  what you want compensation again?

Well I've been around since CamPAIN 1 and chipping has changed. Always chip for worse case Hopey or you get a Tech plain and simple!So much better now you dont get chipped spammed by offset clans. A CamPAIN without a Hopey rant would not be a CamPAIN now would it?

That's the hardest coinflip in Campaigns........ Either banking on not winning more that two in a row to coincide with the next timezone, or risk not fighting battles......

 

We ended up with 5 battles popping same time, couldn't quite get over the line to fill the 5th.... copped a slap (which sux) but them's the breaks

 

Certainly didn't bank on getting 5 battles at the same time!  Risk mitigation is bloody hard, especially with the blind auctions on the advanced front - do you cross the fingers you win the auction, or book some extra battles to keep going.  As you say, nothing worse than sitting there with 50 odd players on and no battles popping.  But, hence camPAIN - rules are rules, and to my knowledge haven't changed in a loooong time regarding minimum numbers for both 10v10 & 15v15....

 

Edit: Without reading, because reading is hard, Lil' Stewy reckons it has been 8 (for 10v10) and 12 (15v15) minimum in previous Campaigns.... Go figure.....

I don't see why it's so hard to read at the top of the screen the minimum amount of players required.

Surely you noticed that in your previous games?
