New Map Discussion

edited September 2017 in General Discussion
As some of you may or may not have seen, a Video on YouTube was posted previewing the new AW Map. I thought I would open a Thread to discuss it. You can see it here:


Please keep it constructive. Like it? Hate it? Any thoughts on a new strategy? I am looking forward to revamping the way I organize Wars personally. It looks exiciting to me. I think the new Boosts are interesting.
The floor is open. :)

    Well, this is more specifically about the preview, and how we feel about what we've seen.

    It will be interesting to organize from the outside-in. Definitely switches it up.

    To be honest, I hate it.

    I don't know the nodes yet, other than a flare node being in there, but I feel like the just ruined the map, trying to over complicate it with portals.

    Well, we haven't seen the Nodes but from what I gather from the video, it's meant to provide more options. I suppose we will see when we get our hands on it if it is more or less complicated.

    I can agree with that

    Here is my concern the harder nodes are middle towards the end. Video shows flare with kinetic reactor, 100% powergain with unblockable sp2, and blood letting with enhanced bleed duration all within the first couple nodes. Where do you go from there?

    Yes. Seems tricky. I'd have to see what is connected to it.

    I wish we had a more comprehensive preview so we could actually study it. I have champs I want to rank up but holding off until we get more info.

    Yup. Sad

    I wonder if their will be different tiers of maps like we currently have. It does look like it will be harder, obviously, as people have learned to clear the current map with few to no items used. If the rewards don't change, I don't see many alliances go on spending frenzies with this new setup. Why waste units when it could come down to only defender diversity and a $50 loss will net 100 each 4&5* shards ?

    I think they wanna see how things go, before updating the rewards.

    Agree. We are in tier 1/2 and it's crazy with juggs/ majik/dorm with MD. So much skill taken out
  • The preview and changes I've read about made me realize I can live without wars tbh... Or even just using them for farming.

    They were a point of contention within many allis before.. Now it'll either be worse or ppl will care about them less.

    The new challenges and nodes will be fun once or twice. Then it'll suck. I see nothing but grave mistakes in pretty much all this.

    And then they'll come along and add a few extra shards to the rewards and ppl will act like it's something amazing. Maybe even 6* shards in some tiers. This will follow the PT Barnam rule

    They could just double the shards for everyone and add some T4CC frag crystals and some t4b frags for certain tiers.
  • Farm it and don't stress imo

    The Rewards will be considered after they get it implemented and running.

    For me, it's just a change in strategy. Basically it means switching the way I organize Wars. I agree that we don't know what Nodes are coming. I appreciate people voicing their feelings. I personally see it as exciting. It's overdue for a revamp.

    lol, i made and posted that in the other discussion...which i may point out, this thread should have been apart of instead of opening a new thread.

    as of right now, we know very little about anytbing in this map. the top secret nature of kabams plan to not let us in on anything is beyond dumb. so really, there isnt much to talk about until Sept 6

    I made the Thread after I saw the video because I wanted a discussion about how people feel in response to what we've seen in it, and how they feel so far about the Map. The same rules apply to me as anyone else.
