**WE ARE NO LONGER Temporarily Reverting Tier 1 War Ban System**

After further discussion, the game team has made the decision not make adjustements to the ban system.
The previously proposed fix would have resolved the issue for Summoners who are on the cusp of T1/T2 play, and negatively impacted Alliances more securely in T1. Instead, we recommend that cusp Alliances switch to Manual Placement to your members to place the allotted 5 Ban Champions limit there.

Apologies for the back and forth, and for any confusion.

    Run in a Plat 4 alliance and from what I can see there is a pathetic increase to the rewards. I'd be understanding if they had made some significant changes to AW to breath life back into a STALE GAME MODE, but it seems like it'll continue to be an unfulfilling experience. Rogue choice to announce this as your first change to the game. Everyone will likely be more critical with the changes you announce later this week Kabam.

    it will all come down to what they do with tactics. if they simply run Flow at us again then just screw it. i REALLY hope the answer is not to just add more tactics and give Flow to attackers because that will do nothing. it will STILL be Flow Wars. and i'm honestly just really not excited about another season of control defenders.

    just get rid of Flow.

    so they did exactly what i was afraid of smh #theyjustdontgetit

    Where are any improvements to the boosting and potion systems? Boosts will still be highly needed if you plan on competing for these new rewards (which are mainly located in Master/high Plat). Also incredibly frustrating to spend thousands of Glory on potions just to heal block damage.

    Literally all they had to do was get rid of defensive tactics, extend attack timer and give a generous buff to rewards for ALL levels not just those that are in the top tier. That's all most of us wanted and they couldn't even give 2 out of 3 to 90% of the players.

    For the time commitment and locking my champs up in war for a month, I’m almost better placed to just join an AQ focussed alliance and just skip war completely.

    The changes to war mechanics seem arbitrary but considerate, the 5 minute timer is cool but I can’t remember the last time I timed out in war and it fed into the tactics of picking a boss killer for that particular boss. The rewards changes are pitiful. I’m in a p4 alliance and we’re seeing such a small change to rewards given the speed the game is advancing. 2% t5cc is horrible, 4 years to get a t5cc if you pull the same class each season 😂.

    I’m hoping this is one of those moments that we are heard and some significant changes are made. I WANT to play war, but I’m hardly motivated for 1.5 five star (which are a dime a dozen nowadays) and half a 6 star (joe fixit anyone?).

    Hoping for a swift amendment to this notice.

    What a mockery for average players really
    Master 1 40k 6* shards
    Gold1 2.5k 6* shards

    Are we exist in game???

    Rewards quantum is a different discussion but you can't compare Masters top spot to Gold 1. In order to have a perfect season in Master, people spend about on average 5k+ units on potions and boosts. In order to have a perfect season in Gold 1, you just need to know your basic skills.
    Pretty true. But...

    ...if the plan is new treats for the lowest end Summoners (to get them playing AW) and better treats for the upmost Summoners (to encourage their playing and spending on AW), this doesn’t bode well as a direction for the rest of the announcements for a large number of players.

    Feels like we’ve seen this one before. Hope I am wrong.

    I should know better than to get my hopes up by now. This is truly disappointing and why I am in my own alliance with my 2 accounts. I get 1750 glory per week running Map 2 and don’t have to worry about the time suck and disappointing rewards of AW.

    Wow. Double 6star shards and increase 5 star Shards for Master/Plat And do pretty much nothing for Gold and below? Straight BS.

    The new meta will be 100% Stubborn.
    And it will be a clown fiesta like with Flow. This node is way overpowered and makes the 2 best champs almost useless (Quake and Ghost)

    You will not be allowed to dex a Special or you will need to block 3 hits to be able to do damage again. This is unfun and Flow 2.0

    Dear Kabam ,
    Really disappointed with the changes you made. You broke my heart for keeping such high expectations. Never would I ever believe you again.

    For the stubborn tactic, a simple way to reign it back a bit. Remove dodged as one of its activators. It's ok to leave miss and evade as stubborn activators as it is, but remove dodged so that our dexterities do not trigger stubborn as well.
