Will players who have used the AW no defenders issue get some kind of punishment
NOOOOOOOOPEEEEE Posts: 2,759 ★★★★★
This is something that like some of my others posts just poped into my head I can see a valid argument for both sides. And also will you guys give the alliances who got screwed over against these alliances some kinda compensation for missing out on rewards due to a cheap tatic?
Placing no defense was always part of strategy in the past.
Hopefully that all makes sense. Kabam Miike has already confirmed the closing of AW soon after so much community feedback - just if you were curious.
Oh, but the "exploit" word will most certainly be used to describe this phenomenon. Just you wait and see....
Not exploits, however, when they had spidey miniboss with evade bug, tons of lag and service disruptions that cost folks health and revives in aq, offered dr strange crystal and awakening gems for purchase just before nerfing the gods to dust, etc, etc.
Force close was a bug in the system and they certainly deemend that an "exploit". So was alliance swapping, and aq tier back and forth.
We take advantage of their short sighted or foolish design, we exploit. When they do it, well, it's just bugs they're working hard to fix and they appreciate our patience in the meantime.
I'll take my prison bars now hall monitors
1. Had the alliances facing the no defender placed allies simply followed the scoring rules instead of trying to put in the same old defense as before, they would have won.
2. How were they "screwed?" How so we know that had the alliance placed defenders that alliance still would not have won?
3. Why would you screw an alliance that looked at the rules and determined their best defensive strategy was to not place any defenders? Essentially you want to punish people for understanding the rules kabam created. That makes no sense.
People said it would be a way to win straight after the announcement but kabam, with their superior maths skills, basically said to "go ahead and try it, it's been done in the past and likely results in a loss".
But it is just exploiting a bad design, and this design was intentional on the developper's side. They thought this new rules set would force player to buy many heal potions to win (which is the only reasoning behind the no defense kill points)
If it had been exploiting a bug, that could be punishable, but there, I don't see anything like that. It is just playing within the rules, and the rules are stupid.
Cause they still have to take down all enemies and 3 boss
Imagine all the mini boss are 550 minimum and the boss are 5* r4 magik dupped
I dont think they can win easily without any items at all
That will teach them
It seems like anytime someone loses to an alliance that looked at the rules set up by kabam and then followed those rules, but in a way different than someone else thought of, the person who didn't think of it (or take time to study and understand the rules) calls "not fair."
People need to learn to read and think for themselves and stop demanding that others be punished for doing so. Anyone who lost to a zero defense alliance didn't lose bc or some "exploit." They lost bc they refused to read the scoring rules and follow them. They also lost bc they didn't understand that the new map was easy and pretty much guaranteed that mildly skillled alliances would be able to 100% the map with little item use.
Instead of complaining that you lost to someone who had a better strategy than you, maybe you should spend that effort with your own alliance coming up with a strategy of your own. We are about to be 3-0 in war since the changes (changes I don't like mind you) bc we read the rules and understand the scoring. We have also placed full defenses every war.
If I'm going to have one group I hit one group if I want two groups I hit two groups not try to win by being deceitful. Just saying
Kabam DEFINITELY read what that person posted. Ignored it and went live anyway.
Kabam is witnessing the disaster scoring system and joke of no defenders. Now with egg on their face they will make a change.
Thank you egg throwers. You deserve the tiny little aw rewards.
Just don't hold your breath on it corrected, the changes are being made by people who dont understand basic math. They only understand kabam math.
it's well within the confines and rules set forth by kabam. there's nothing deceitful about it.
this is an example just like the REAL world. people who rely on research and mathematics to make strategies are often successful.
