Early Look: New Alliance Wars Maps - Discussion Thread

Hey Everybody!

We've got another Early Look for you all! This time, we're introducing brand new Maps for all Tiers of Alliance Wars!

We recently ran a Beta for Alliance Wars that featured a number of different Updates to the Mode, and our Beta Players offered us a wealth of feedback. We’ve parsed the data and feedback that we collected, and want to give you all a glimpse into our plans moving forward.

In our Beta, we updated the map and also introduced a new feature called “Defense Tactics”. The Map update introduced a new layout and new Buffs, while Defense Tactics allowed Alliance Leadership to choose a Global Buff to apply to the Map, which allows for Defenses to be more customizable and setup in a more meaningful way.

The feedback we received was that these two major changes together were quite jarring, and that it was too much all at once. We agree with this sentiment so we have decided to stagger the release of the Map update and the release of Defense Tactics (currently scheduled for Season 11).

Read all about the upcoming map changes in the Early Look here!

    Refresh my memory, what's Tankbuster and Psychic Thorns?

    I think Tankbuster increases defender power gain rate and crit damage based on attacker’s block proficiency. I don’t ever recall seeing psychic thorns.

    Will we get to practice the new map during the off-season when season 9 ends?

    Please give a buff dictionary to look up those new buffs...I found a useful site but it doesn't have the new ones.

    I believe he just eluded to the fact that the Rewards will change, but they want them to coincide with the changes as well. That's what I understood.

    So what’s the point of Scouter Lens if you’re going to hide all information except for 5 champs and show the rest? Will Scouter Lens even reveal any of the hidden champs? Either way, seems like you all severely or completely diminished the value of that mastery....

    Do people even read? Lol.

    They do. And they have stated that while kabam said they want rewards to increase with these defense tatcits in season 11, season 10 is already seeing an increase of difficulty but nada on rewards. That is why people are upset.
    Okay. I'm going to put my Geico hat on and translate.
    This is an "Early Look". A heads-up into some of the changes that are coming, much the same as the Early Look at the AQ changes, in an effort to be transparent about what's coming. Something people always demand, but don't often recognize.
    Unless I'm totally mistaken, there will be an Announcement sometime close to the changes that breaks down Rewards and other things.
