**Known AQ Bug**
We are aware that some alliances encountered a bug during this last AQ that would not allow them to start maps on certain days. We know this has impacted your rewards.
We have been looking into the cause of the problem and once we have resolved it we will explore how to make things right for the impacted alliances. We will provide any additional communication in

this thread.

Alliance War Draft to Increase Diversity

Hi, since the goal with alliance war changes has been to increase diversity, I think there is a fun and interesting way to do this while not forcing it. Drafts have been used in other team based games to add a strategy element, which results in diverse war, especially in mcoc where peoples rosters are literally random.

Each alliance before hand could ban characters from appearing in the war. This can be specific to defense, offense, or a combination. This would allow alliances to ban defenders they do not want to see, or ban attackers that are key to stopping their specific defense.

Alternatively, or in combination with a short ban list, there could be a draft. So each alliance takes turns selecting characters that only their team can use in attack.

There are many options that can be done after you accept the idea of either bans or a draft. A lot more thought is needed but this would add a massive strategy element to the game and diversity would be a natural by product.

If anyone is wondering where I got this idea it is from the original DOTA, which had a game mode called captains mode. It was the one used for tournaments.
