Due to an issue with Alliance War Defense Tactic, we will be ending this Alliance War Season effective immediately. This current War will not count towards your Alliance War Season Score. War Season eligibility rewards will be reduced to 2 Wars in the Season.

We understand that this is not a perfect solution, but without the ability to remove or freeze the War Rating quick enough, the rest of our Alliance War season would be compromised.

This war will remain active, and in-game, you will still see the season until tomorrow. After we end the season tomorrow, we will be taking some time to collect data and remove the changes to the Alliance War Season score. Once that is complete, we will be able to send out Alliance War Season rewards.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Need a definitive answer from Kabam before next AQ series

edited July 2020 in General Discussion
I know multiple summoners facing a dilemma upon the completion of the AQ series today including my alt. I have plans to make an alliance switch to join a higher ranking AQ alliance as im sure many other summoners might be doing as well. I realized that if people make the jump today and by chance Kabam decides to cancel the remainder of the AW season, we will miss out completely on AW season rewards.

This puts those who have intentions of making an alliance change in an awkward position until we can get a definitive answer from top brass. Can we please get a resolution and game plan prior to Wednesday morning? Those who have intentions of switching alliances can confirm they will be able to get in the 2 wars needed to qualify for season rewards and still honor the commitment made to join the new alliance without being held hostage by any indecision.

Thanks in advance.... @Kabam Miike @Kabam Zibiit @Kabam Vydious @Kabam Porthos @Kabam Lyra

    With all the recent issues, would you really trust them if they said all is good? They thought restarting AQ after the first screw up was fine, that didn't work as stated! To me, it's too risky to think about leaving before the last 3 wars, because even if they say it's good, another bug could pop up as we've seen in there past many times. Safest bet is to wait out the season. That way, you can still have a full AQ set in before war is scheduled to end, making a transition easy.

    makes the most sense sure, but the game has been running just dandy since Friday, so I'm hoping to get some answers and take the chance that their server providers have their ish together now....

    The season ends in 9 days. The cancelled the last 2 wars and they wont have the one that would be placement for today. As it stands right now, you have to participate in 3 wars before seasons end. There are only 3 wars left. They don't have plans to cancel the AW season as long as the issues are fixed. There isn't a 100% to know until matchmaking goes live again.or if the can confirm but I don't think they know yet.

    haha, you need to read the updates again hombre. Also in multiple threads they have said that cancelling the season isnt off the table.

    I hope your faith in kabam rewards you! History has shown otherwise!
    I'm a glutton for punishment evidently. Just want to honor my commitment and start getting better AQ rewards :)

    How do you get a "definitive answer" to something that in itself is not definitive? In any other season you would not be making a jump right now because you could not get the 5 wars in, jumping in the middle of massive server issues just because they lowered the requirement down to 2 wars is really risking a lot. You only have these intentions because of the uncertainty, asking for certainty with it seems like a lot.</blockquote

    Not asking a lot here. Simply asking if they're going to cancel the season or not. It's pretty much a yes or no question. If they don't know by Wednesday then i have my answer. I'm asking for a timely response and clarity considering they haven't taken that option off the table. To cancel the season is a massive decision and one that shouldn't be made on a case by case basis which you are suggesting. So in essence, a definitive answer can be given without making things more complicated.

    They haven't decided that themselves yet. They're going to look at that this week.

    That is asking a lot. They dont know what is going to happen next week. If the servers jack up again they will cancel the season, if they are fine they will continue. There is no timely response or clarity they can give you because until they turn back on wars and see how it behaves they have no idea themselves. They may think they have the issue fixed and find they were wrong, so a definitive answer cannot be made.

    Ever hear of an executive decision? One not influenced by potential outcomes? They could easily make a choice based off what has already transpired. That would be a definitive decision making instance.

    Ever heard of terrible mistakes? There is no reason for them to make an executive decision right now, generally speaking making an executive decision without all the data is bad, and if anything bad happened they would have vastly more people upset at them if they decided to stick with the 2 war rule over having fair wars.

    they deleted the thread discussing opinions on ending the war season for some reason. i guess they still gotta get a few wars in for people who buy all the big boosts.

    Yea just ignore everything being said because reasons. Canceling the season at this point is not a massive decision, it is an easy, if the servers are acting up you cancel. It is better to cancel than have half the game not be able to match or play, and must be done on a case by case basis, therefore is a big ask. But keep thinking they are going to do something that gives them no benefit and has a massive downside so that you can do something you would have never done in any other situation other than the massive server outages.

    I mean....there's nothing more constructive to be said. They don't know, so we don't know. If they decide, then they will let us know. Nothing more can be done at this point.
