Alliance War Season Rewards for Season 13 have now been distributed. Compensation for individual Wars will be sent later today (Nov 20). You can leave your alliance and still receive the individual Wars Compensation. We are also investigating an issue with Champions stuck in AQ. At the moment Days 1-4 of Honor Rewards have been paid out, Day 5 and full Rewards are still coming!

No more identity in MCOC.

    Why is this Bar Code Strategy even a strategy? How is it useful?

    It prevents players from scouting their AW paths

    It prevents them from scouting their path accurately. You can still make a lot of close assumptions, but the accuracy drops a lot.

    By “scouting accurately” he means he can’t easily get a list of defenders from another alliance and see where exactly they were placed.

    Ok.

    So below pic Kabam clearly states that barcode names give unfair advantage to people/team

    Correct me if I’m wrong but team that placed 1st in season 2 was using this *unfair advantage* for entire season.

    Will anything be done about it?

    Rhetorical...I assume.

    Nope they weren't flagged before the end of season, its flagged now and to be honest wasn't that hard to figure out who you were fighting.

    No, why would anything be done about it?

    That's like crying for season 1 piloters to be punished after season 2 is already done. In an absolutely fair world sure, but the rule is the rule now and I'm glad Kabam is taking action before season 3 starts.

    If this screenshot is true, what about summoners with Chinese names, I am sure most of us can't read their names right. You guys shouldn't make the IIIIIIIIIIII players change their names without doing it across the board to be fair to everyone.

    There’s a difference between barcodes and someone’s actual name. What are you expecting kabam to do? Tell Chinese summoners to pick a name in an alphabet that’s foreign to them?

    Just look at each character of their name and compare it in the alliance member page. The symbols are different, unlike an uppercase I and a lowercase l.

    Nice.

    @Kabam Miike will Kabam hide IGN on the war map as well? Please hide class too
  • ILovePoniesILovePonies Posts: 158
    This is so stupid. I don’t see the big problem with it. Yes it makes you use your brain a little more when scouting your path, even better way to handle this... take away all class types when joining attack phase. Literally the only reason they have done it to hide what kabam should hide anyway.

    Great we got an update. All that's left is to add nodes to AW that nullify attack team synergies and we'll finally find out which alliance is the most skilled.
