Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.

Alliances Becoming A Thing Of The Past

I wanted to check in here with other alliance leaders and see how things are going.

With Kabams current setup you no longer need an alliance. We have so much free glory you can taken a month off and maybe not use it all. There is no side quest so daily logins aren't required. War isn't going on so there is no bonus right now to being in an alliance.

Any other alliances feeling this at all? This month seems so hum-drum that everyone wants a break. I get it, I don't even want to recruit because it's harder to find decent folk.

Anyone have any suggestions or tips?

    I think you guys are confused. I'm not complaining about what's done. I'm just pointing out the facts.

    Ask yourself this, why are you in your alliance? No war and no need for glory.

    Is there any benefit at all right now to being in an alliance?

    Some will say aq. Those that have been running the same maps for a year or more think it's more of a chore right now than a bonus. For the first time ever you can play without an alliance and it's no big deal.

    As for the person saying give it time, that's all you can do.

    Taking a break from the game seems like a solid idea right now since you can do all the content on a weekend. No more daily logins for anything and no need to find a new home until something else kicks in. Lots of folks are taking a break from play right now. It's the best time ever to do it.

    No more complaining about what's going on this month. Let's hear some ideas on keeping our friends from leaving the game or some ideas on how to keep our groups together.

    If only, or rather if only there was an option for solo player progression.

    AW will come back, free Glory will dry up, the cycle will begin anew. If you want to progress at a respectable pace, you'll at least have to do AQ.
  • We doing wars,keep winning. Moved up 3 tiers

    There kind of is. You can construct a solo alliance. But in this context, that might be cheating.

    This is temporary and although I have an alliance i'm the leader so I tend to do the bare minimum to get rewards....and i don't kick people out who don't join in on AQ/AW....i stopped enjoying the game for a while when i used to take all of the alliance stuff too seriously and got stabbed in the back by my top Officer....i would rather enjoy the game and that means no serious AW/AQ for me

    Suggestion/tip: gifting events, weekly summoner advancement, weekly alliance event rewards, still doing AQ for glory on top of glory and I'll spend every drop, even if it has to be gold, but that's not gonna happen since I've r3d two 6* in the past two weeks.

    Besides that, the friendships and banter in are a fun aspect of an alliance for me too.

    Personally I want the 1000+ units that are coming from logging in every day plus the other things that can be had, I like my alliance and wasn't looking for a break, I still want the t5cc from AQ as well as the map 7 crystals, and the glory will go fast if more isn't coming in. We aren't having any issues maintaining 30 members, so business as usual.

    That glory will dry up at some point, then you're back needing an alliance

    You still need to be part of alliance. The extra glory and so on is for the compensation for the parry/dexterity bug. It’s an wise move from kabam, but also nice. But they will stop giving it out when they finally find a fix.

    I mean if don't wanna push AQ now, just take a small break. No need to push people or kick them out. Just relax and chill. Eventually AW, no glory compensation, etc. will return.

    This guy completely forgot that summoner advancement, 3 day and 1 day events exist lmao
  • FenicoFenico Posts: 215 ★★★
    Go leave your alliance then.

    We will see you back in 4 days asking why you didn't get you compensation package with "free glory".

    I'll save you some time - AQ compensation package is sent only to players in alliances.

    Our alliance is just fine, we keep playing the game, bugs or no bugs. We talk in our Line chat just like before.
    We are definitely not a thing of the past. Bugs will be sorted at some point, we just have to persevere.
    I actually think break from AW did a lot of alliances good lol

    My ally is happy and chugging along. We’re AQ-focused, AW-optional. People like being in our alliance so don’t see anyone dropping because of this blip.

    To be honest I’m in my alliance because there’s a bunch of cool guys in there who I enjoy playing the game with…

    No need for an alliance... 3k Glory goes away REALLY fast if you're buying T2A, T5B, or T5CC frags. Not to mention any other mats that people seem to always be low on.
