**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.

Too many news sources?

KerneasKerneas Posts: 3,764 ★★★★★
Idk, maybe I am just an idiot, that's very much a possibility, but am I the only one who feels like there are just too many information sources?

We have:
Forums
MCoC website
Streams
Twitter
and I dunno if there isn't sth more?

Personally, I don't have time to spend hours watching streams on a friday night. So I was happy with seeing a writeup on the webpage. But the current situation? I have 0 idea what Necropolis is. I never saw any announcement, where is it? Can't find it on forums nor the web (again: might just be my mistake). And now I learnt about an upcoming Twitch stream, that was announced on X, which was shared onto Reddit by a random user.

So really, am I just an old dog, or does anyone else feel the same?

    Mcoc website is after its shared either on forums twitter/x or streams, twitter is just announcements of the week really or the streams, forums is where most info goes and the necro stuff was on there latest stream with battlerealm brawl but there isnt much news as they do streams for content in the month always on the friday a week before updates and then they do a quick summary for the website.

    Forums are for official threads
    MCoC website is for collecting weekly celebration crystal
    Twitch streams are the only source for livestream on upcoming updates (Unless you want extra commentary)
    Twitter is for leaks
    YT is for youtubers to discuss stuff on what's going on.

    So twitch and forums are best source. But follow twitch first as they might miss stuff on their threads.

    If you are very casual, follow richtheman for generic updates. KT1 does analysis as well but that's more advanced.

    Don’t forget the awful trello board for bugs that was announced one year ago here on the forums, is rarely updated or accurate, and hasnt been mentioned in game once.

    To be informed i only use forum (website only for claim crystals) and some youtubers. When there is an important announcement all the youtubers cover them.

    Would you please link me the quick summary from the Necro stream? I don't expect a whole lotta information, I just wanna know in which section of the website to look.

    I don't know why so many people are disagreeing with you.

    I'm someone who DOES check the forum frequently, I enjoy it. And I follow MCOC on Twitter and Instagram.

    But I do agree that if there's not "too many" news sources, the game has reached a point where content is "too confusing or difficult to understand" that you NEED to use outside sources for information.

    I can't imagine a person just playing the game, reading in-game messages and announcements, and having ANY idea what's going on.

    We probably won't see a writeup until it is closer to release. The battlerealm brawl stream was more of a teaser than getting a lot of info.

    My experience is that people get as much information as they invest in. Some people just read in-game messages, some don't even do that. They're usually quite happy with that. They log in and play, and that's about it.
    There are other avenues for information, and the Forum isn't the only main source. Its primary purpose after all, is for us to discuss the game.
    I don't think there's such thing as too much. If people want to stay on top of every bit of information that comes out, then they put the effort in. If not, things make it around eventually.

    While this is true, I think my main point is that the game has reached a point where it’s so complex that it’s NECESSARY to do what feels like tons and tons of research.

    That is neither good nor bad. It is what it is. But man do I sometimes feel like I’m spending more time learning about the game than I do playing it.

    The MCOC webpages is more than just the Webstore. It has the patch notes present and past. All the champion spotlights are there and other news and announcements are there as well.

    We don't have more than a quick look at necropolis currently. There's a stream tomorrow that will go into more detail, and I'll have a summary uploaded here shortly after it's done.

    Had to laugh because both of these are pretty spot on.
