**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.
More information here.
**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

AW STILL BROKEN

I hope Kabam hasn't given up on fixing AW. We've seen an improvement in Tier1 where the team with more exploration was the winnerbut Tier 2 is a mess. Every serious alliance can 100% tier2 so it comes down to who has the most suicides and boosts applied when placing. I hate monkeying with masteries constantly, please fix this. Why can't defender rating be prestige based instead of PI?

    we used to be in tier1 but at the last 11 wars we won only twice. (L-W-L-W-L-L....L-L)
    all our loses were because of defender rating...
    we know few other alliances that have the same war rating as us but much lower prestige/total rating and they get much easier matches.
    I think they changed the matching system. 7 straight loses (and 9 out of 11) is more than just a bad luck.

    what is it means?
    maybe it means that our alliance has a lot of skill and when AW was skill base we manage to stay on top.
    now when it's base on rating, we drop down from top 50 (last season) to not even "top 1000"

    bravo #kabam ! diversity is no longer the factor for wining...

    The mods are very quiet about this for some reason. Many of us have been trying to find an answer on how wars are being matched.

    We place 332 in aq last week running 5x5 and we can’t get out of tier 8. It’s mind boggling.

    Same boat here. 10 mil ally 5x5. 2500ish in AQ every week. Can't get past tier 8. We were routinely in tier 3 to 5 before the changes. The sad thing is we have more defender kills every single war. It's really quite sad tbh. Fighting over 3* shards as a 10 mil ally is embarrassing.

    How is that even possible? If you're top 400 doing 5x5, then your prestige over 5k. How do you not have defenders that rank high enough for tier 2? Do you only rank prestige champs?

    Same boat seems the only way we've been winning wars lately is by running only 2 bgs instead of 3 were a 7mil+ ally as well. We've had people dropping like flys because of it.

    @Kabam Miike can we please get an update on that?
    it's very frustrating.
    is this the plan? is this how it supposed to work? are we doing something wrong? did you change the matching system?

    All I can say is wow, you cant be serious...

    We loose to defender rating too, because every alliance we face is average 2 mill higher than us. Pairing system seems off

    The issue is this isn’t even a war anymore. 100%’ing a map can be easily done by both sides, and the win comes down to diversity or some other random **** that should in no way be a determing factor in a war.
    It basically has become a show off contest to see which team has the biggest e-peen, and if it wasn’t for the rewards that you get from completing a war, our alliance wouldn’t even bother with it anymore.
