    To become eligible for the season rewards do you have to stay with an alliance from the very beginning of the season?

    Seems that image was left out of the first post. I've updated it to include the image now!

    And here we go as seen before....is matchmaking going to be fair or are the 3 mil alliances gonna struggle against a 7 mil? Matchmaking is the key here! Not just rewards for the pros. :)

    Will the War Ratings be starting fresh or will we be continuing from where we currently are? @Kabam Miike
  • My guess is this is how they fix war matchmaking to go back to just war rating and not factoring in prestige as well. This way shell alliances get penalized.

    You must complete 5 Wars with that Alliance before the end of the Season. If you leave the Alliance after completing 5 Wars, and then come back, that does not count. The counter resets every time you leave an Alliance.

    So, what would prevent a top alliance hypothetically from going undefeated through let's say the first 7 weeks and then stopping and holding knowing that there would be a very small chance for other alliances to catch them?

    Then they would stop getting points and other alliances who keep doing wars would pass them on the leaderboard.

    "Seasons will turn Alliance Wars into the most competitive, and lucrative mode in the game. This is where you will go for the most valuable and sought after rewards available in The Contest ..."

    for the top 300. everyone else, you are getting the same ol' stuff that you have in excess.

    EDIT:
    still an improvement .... I shouldn't complain.

    You could do this if you wanted, but that would be a VERY risky maneuver. Remember, skipping Alliance Wars will decay your War Rating, which means you'll drop tiers, while others will rise to replace you. With the larger multiplier in higher tiers, you're definitely giving other Alliances a huge opportunity to overtake you.

    You'll be continuing from where you currently are.
  • How long will each season last? Will these rewards be distributed after season 1 ends, or will it be at the end of season 2?

    1.Alliances on the "cusp" will be forced to spend in order to keep up with their tiers. Great for the Kabam bottom line, not so good for the players.

    2. Top 1% rewards are absolutely insane good, top 5% are good, everything else has a steep decline into meaningless rewards

    I'm holding out judgement until a "season" goes by, but I'm not optimistic.
  • SO basically now it's a must to spend on AW. Awesome.
