We have not set an end-date for the new period, but we will update this banner when we have more information.

Recruitment also bugged or changed??

i think ive seen people post about it already but i didnt see any replies from kabam on the matter.
having the alliance open for recruiting BEFORE was providing decent sized accounts of 1mill rating and above. serious accounts that matched similar demographics of the alliance.

but now there are literally hundreds of 1-3* top champ accounts joining every second... i honestly dont think thats even possible as they are all different. either some new country got ahold of the game and its new to them or hackers are mass producing accounts now? dont care to much where they came from but im worried maybe something in kabams algorithm was messed up the recruiting similarities the game used to provide(or at least seemed to have provided).

if all that is in my head, can we get a QOL improvement where we can customize in game requirements while allowing the alliance to remain open? to better help filter the obvious unwanted accounts.
for example having a 2mil rating requirement that wont allow accounts below to join or title progression as well. i would maybe say the total amount of r4 or r5 6* as options as well but that might be over specific.

anything to help better organize in game recruiting.

    I started a thread on this yesterday…. Didn’t get any replies from anyone, so I assumed it was just me.

    But after trying again and again to get legit summoners, I finally logged a ticket. All I got back was instructions on how to open and close alliance recruiting.

    This totally wrecks adding people to the alliance. I know the mods are out on weekends but this needs addressed ASAP.

    and these weird alliance "changes" literally appeared after the last AW season ending. im glad i wasnt the only one that noticed. its strange they allow the game to be so bad that people need discord, Line, whatsapp to better communicate with members. i know plenty of other mobile games that allow people to send pictures or at least better show rosters and better alliance chats. just major improvements are needed

    This needs addressed. Logging a ticket and the dialogue with support was fruitless.

    It’s impossible to get legit summoners in the allaince with this bot behavior…

    We have the same issue. Had to close our alli as low level players were seemingly auto joining as fast as we could kick them

    they need to add an joining alliance prestige requirement setting No requirement to 0-5k, 6-10k, 11-15k, 16-21k and so on and forth as prestige gets higher

    Any news on this bug @Kabam Miike?

    I am guessing our window was before 7 stars dropped. Now this is going to be back burnered indefinitely because of everything else. Maybe in June we can try again to get someone to notice this….

    they may not have any info or idea on as how to go about the situation. play it out till they have something concrete to mention
  • Kabam should be looking at this hopefully

    My technique was to go to the alliance member tab and keep kicking the tiny accounts until a high level account appeared. Took a bit of time and a number of goes, but eventually a higher level account turned up

    I would have preferred to use my time actually playing the game though.

    My support ticket response was ‘that it was working as intended’.

    They ignored the fact that it has never happened before in the last 4 years when opening the alliance for recruiting. It’s only happened since the last update.

    every time i open our alliance up, all these accounts with like 5-10 champs and a total rating in the tens of thousands joins. it's a full time job to keep kicking them hoping someone decent joins

    someone seriously needs to look into this, it should not just match a beginner whose top champ is a 1* with an alliance with a ratong over 70 million

    there are so many bugs id think they have different devs working on different bugs... as theres different teams so theyve said. youd think all these issues would be worked on simultaneously.. just waiting for the "working as intended" :D

    Just adding support to this issue, as I experienced this problem today. I had to kick a member who hadn't played for a while, then kept getting very low level accounts joining instantly, straight after kicking them. One even seemed to start AQ within 20 seconds of joining. Seems strange, and I wondered if they were bots. It was never like this before. Had to lock the alliance to 'By Request'.

    definitely bots, more users looks good their active player base. probably racking up income off of every account or something. they fact we are the ones that have to deal with them is annoying. wouldnt be surprised if theres more bots in a single region compared to the overall actual active community :D
