Foreword

Welcome back to another season of Alliance War!
We’re excited to put Season 48 behind us and move onto Season 49. We want to remind you all of a few changes made during Season 48, then lay the groundwork for Season 49. Please see below.

Scoring Update - Defender Diversity

We have seen a trend of Alliances relying on particularly stubborn, recent defenders resulting in multiple copies being placed as defenders on a path. This is unintended behavior, and, to further incentivize diverse paths, we have increased the potential points awarded for Defender Diversity.

We’ll be increasing this amount from 30 Points per Defender, to 270 Points, the equivalent of three Attack Bonuses.

Season 49 Tactics

Defense

Magic Thief - 1:
#Magic Thief Defenders gain a stackable Indestructible Passive every 20 seconds, or when their attacks are Dodged, Evaded, or Miss. Max stacks: 3. Attacks that Miss an #X-Magica Attacker do not grant an Indestructible. This timer is paused during the Defender's Specials, and for 0.5s when struck by an #X-Magica Attacker with an active Prowess effect. As long as this Indestructible Passive is on the Defender, they gain 5% of a Bar of Power when hitting the Attacker's Block. 1 Indestructible Passive is removed whenever the Attacker Well-Time Blocks. These effects cannot be affected by Ability Accuracy.

Magic Thief - 2:
#Magic Thief Defenders gain a stackable Indestructible Passive every 15 seconds, or when their attacks are Dodged, Evaded, or Miss. Max stacks: 4. Attacks that Miss an #X-Magica Attacker do not grant an Indestructible. This timer is paused during the Defender's Specials, and for 0.5s when struck by an #X-Magica Attacker with an active Prowess effect. As long as this Indestructible Passive is on the Defender, they gain 10% of a Bar of Power when hitting the Attacker's Block. 1 Indestructible Passive is removed whenever the Attacker Well-Time Blocks. These effects cannot be affected by Ability Accuracy.

Magic Thief - 3:
#Magic Thief Defenders gain a stackable Indestructible Passive every 10 seconds, or when their attacks are Dodged, Evaded, or Miss. Max stacks: 5. Attacks that Miss an #X-Magica Attacker do not grant an Indestructible. This timer is paused during the Defender's Specials, and for 0.5s when struck by an #X-Magica Attacker with an active Prowess effect. As long as this Indestructible Passive is on the Defender, they gain 15% of a Bar of Power when hitting the Attacker's Block. 1 Indestructible Passive is removed whenever the Attacker Well-Time Blocks. These effects cannot be affected by Ability Accuracy.

Attack

X-Magica
If the Attacker has the #X-Magica tag, performing a Well-Timed Block or striking the Opponent's Block with a Light Attack grants them an indefinite 2% Prowess Passive. Max stacks: 7. Each of these Prowess reduces the Defender's Purify Ability Accuracy by 34%. Each of these Prowess also reduces the Defender's Ability Power Rate by 20%, to a maximum reduction of 100%. When a #Magic Thief Defender activates a non-instant Indestructible effect while the Attacker has a tactic Prowess or vice versa, one of each effect is instantly removed. These effects cannot be affected by Ability Accuracy..
