war is not fun anymore

The difficulty increase in war makes it not fun anymore. Node 30 is near impossible to beat without heavy spending and boosts. Getting stuck on it means the group can't clear. It's not fun getting stuck on nodes that are designed to be so difficult.

Kabam says they don't want us to 100% the map. Then don't put the hardest nodes on paths that are required to be taken down to reach the boss. The old war map used to have super hard nodes on the top and far right, and skipping them meant we could still reach and kill bosses. If alliances wanted to increase exploration, they could fight the hard nodes too.

But this map is reversed and makes no sense. The hardest nodes should be unlinked and not link other nodes and should be on paths 1 and 9 so alliances could choose to skip them and reduce exploration %, and still reach the boss. Hardest node shouldn't be in the middle paths where not clearing it stalls the entire map. It's bad design.

We send 3 people to node 30 and they can't take it down. This is not an issue of "get good". We have great fighters who are all just outmatched by this node and it's taking the fun out of the game mode because it makes the players in the middle paths feel like cr.ap. This is a game. It should be fun. It should not be so stressful because people can't clear an impossible node.

    6 bishop no items used
    5 domino no items used (had like 8 percent t health remain)
    5 hulk (easy easy fight )
    Not seeing these issues I guess

    First time I took node 30, spent 15/15 items but finally took it down.

    Second time I took it, spent 5 items.

    Third time, spent 0 items.

    Seriously, it’s doable. Those in the middle just need to figure out how to handle it.

    depends who is on it. i have blade and i face magik there and die only 1 time. faced medusa, and 3 people died 3 times each with full health champs. we had placed hyperion once, he died with 1 kill. we placed hulk ragnarok, he got 16 kills. this is tier 3

    Too hard = not fun?
    LAME
  • Played this game for over three years and war used to be so much fun. Less stress, and would love to see which nodes would be best with each defender. They changed the map and then it was all downhill from there. It’s really sad to see what’s been done to it. With AQ just a long monotonous outdated game mode, at least we had war to look forward to. Now we don’t care if we win or lose.

    Node 27 is really tough now too. Wars are now pay to win. We're not using items as it's off season but we've lost wars to other alliances who have used a ridiculous amounts of items despite it being off season. When the season 3 starts you're just gonna have to use items to win & in some cases it will be who uses/spends the most items.
  • My alliance has decided to take it easy in war going forward. Not worth the effort in items and stress tbh, kabam really shot themselves in the foot imo with this last update to Aw.

    get back to us once you've fought 5/65 awakened Killmonger on 30.
