    I feel equally frustrate as you about this, @UmbertoDelRio . Friday as soon as the game really went down, someone made a post enquiring about the possible knock on effect on AW. Quite a few players voiced their concerns and asked for wars to be put on pause - many hours before that matchmaking went live.

    And while everyone was singing praises to kbm for their msgs (here in the forums) and carrying on in that chat thread - many of us were worried coz we could see a mile off that something could go very wrong - as it did.

    The way I see it, there are a number of different player types that might or might not have been affected.

    1: Players who were in alliances that got multiple war cancellations.

    2: Players switching alliances during these war cancellations in time for season rewards.

    3: Players not in an alliance trying to join one in time for season rewards during war cancellations.

    4: Players not in an alliance and not trying to join during war cancellations.

    5: Players who matched regardless of the war cancellations.

    It might be the case that the team would need to consider different compensation packages depending on which group players fall into. Players in categories 1, 2, and 5 could be compensated in the same fashion, whereas players in categories 3-4 would need “special treatment.”

    Players in 1, 2, and 5 should be compensated at least with the tier above where they were before cancellations. Category 2 would be a special case of whether to reward the new alliances rewards or the previous. I’d opt towards the newer alliances rewards if in fact the player joined before the cutoff for the season.

    Players in 3 and 4 would need something different as there’s really no great way to distinguish between the two. There’s not an easy solution, but these are at least the different categories of players that were affected from my perspective.
  • @UmbertoDelRio like I said, way past that point of stopping now so such a suggestion is moot. The should've, would've, and could'ves aren't going to help now. I agree it would've been prudent to put a halt to the Season at that juncture, however, too late now was my point. Hence alternative solutions are needed.

    To be clear, I never said they did or didn't make it worse. Truth be told, any action may've had it's own fires, so they chose to not act to gain more data. The situation got worse due to unknown factors, and to find them, need AW to keep rolling. As such, why talk about what could've been done when it's already past due? Also, again, how can they address how they're going to handle this when they themselves haven't figured it out yet? Asking for information that's unavailable is gonna go nowhere fast.

    Of course we all want answers. Of course this possibly could've been averted by a different course of action, but here we are. Need to work in the now. I do agree though, an in game notice would be a good course of action considering many are not forum members. Definitely would help in keeping everyone in the loop. As it stands, we just have to wait and see what the plan will be, and address any issues with it once we know what that plan is. Until then, everyone will just have to wait unfortunately. I don't like it anymore than you, or anyone else. Just accepting things as they are is all.

    Now this is sad. We dropped from plat 1 17 to plat 2 18 because we our war was canceled. All the stress, items, boosts that we used were for nothing 😢

    Guys we dropped an entire bracket and ranking p3 to p4. @Kabam Miike @Kabam Vydious


    Need some resolution over this topic.
  • Scmex21Scmex21 Posts: 85
    Any ideas over extending the P3 rewards to affected Alliances? Not many wars remaining

    We have now dropped from plat 1 to plat 3 bc of back to back failing to match for war.

    I have sent in 2 tickets and kabam has not responded.

    We also missed out on another tier of aq rank rewards and one map completion rewards bc the game had a meltdown with 1 hour left in aq on day 1. That bg was fighting thanos and getting zero points for it. This will also knock us out of the rank rewards we were supposed to get.

    The unknown factors is whatever they missed when they thought it was fixed, and clearly it wasn't. If they knew Alliances were still going to get un-enlisted, one would guess (or at least hope) a different course of action would've been taken @UmbertoDelRio . Or perhaps a message stating they knew it wasn't fixed and needed more info, so try to enlist anyway.


    EDIT - The rest is now moot. The Season has been ended

    Like I initially said, best to wait and see. Now, we have information, and it parallels what many suggested. Personally, I'm good with this. Hopefully the majority are as well.
  • And to clarify @UmbertoDelRio , my thinking is open to all possibilities. Nothing more, nothing less. Clearly they agreed that the Standings were compromised to the point they couldn't be repaired. So go back to the last point they weren't. Simple, straightforward, and effective. Unfortunate for some, but probably the best overall action for all. I would assume more will be coming as we go. Just have to wait and see.

    Sucks for people that had bad early matchups that would have climbed back up a tier but dont think they had much of a choice
