    I don’t have an issue with the new map and nodes however my alliance is only tier 4/5.. so nodes are probably much harder tier 1/2/3. Like the flexibility with switching sides etc through the portals.

    They could remove the links from the left and right mini's and it would help "somewhat". Right now if one or two people can't join right away you have a log jam in the middle.

    Maybe allow the left and right portals do to section 2 as well? If you don't have 9 guys on at the start you won't clear the map.

    It's an abomination... No wait, that's a disservice to Abomination, he's a good character. Evidently no one at Kabam plays this game.

    intermediate map, tried 1bg for poops and giggles, taking my 2 boss-killer accounts right up the middle and just going to clear the boss. told my guys to do what you can, but what may make more sense IF we decide to do season 10 is just ignore the sides, take out the boss in 3 bgs and hope that's enough points at the end of 30 days for gold-ish.

    Or, you know, just not do it...

    We’re a AW focused alliance. I’ve got a pretty beefy roster. 4 R5 defenders. It’s been fun so far. We’ve got say 7 accounts with 2 R5 attackers and small rosters. No real spenders. But they’re committed. We’re 2/3 the way through and should get the win. We dipped to Tier 4. We placed Plat 2 last season. Spent the whole season in Tier 2.

    It’s just so hard right now to ask your ally to commit to making the effort and spending the time to what now is essentially one shorting a chapter in Act 6 with a roster of 3 rather than 5 ... for seriously outdated rewards.

    @Kabam Miike I know the entire community would welcome the game team designing a couple simple tools to help plan attack and defense. Some sort of mechanic to lay out paths. The new map is complicated. Some smaller rosters can’t say just take the middle path and need to jump around. The biggest short coming in the new AW meta, IMO, is the difficulty in coordinating. The rewards not being updated with the dramatic change in difficulty and time commitment has hurt the community’s enjoyment in AW.

    Many alliances feel they are done.

    This is our first war with this map war version!!! It just seams like the map was designed to force us to make mistakes and take the wrong paths!!! Why do you have to cluster everything up, it’s so annoying, seriously annoying, # hash tag ANNOYING

    New war map is killer for casual alliances where we used to manage with 6-7 members

    This map may not be horrible but it's buggy as can be. Tier 3 I think this war...maybe 2.. didn't check. Our alliance already decided instead of plat 2-3 we are going to settle for gold 1 and stop spending in war. No items unless they're free. Noticed right away reverse control nodes don't work properly, the first second +/- they may or may not be reversed. So you have no idea which way to swipe. At the moment I'm just blocking at the start of the fight until the node catches up with controls.... taking block damage...fun and interactive..lol.

    At this point it’s barely worth the glory, since so many items in the glory store got reduced in price. No buff in rewards. Why spend it on pots when you can buy T2A and T5B?

    I’m a highly skilled dedicated player, have quite the roster, and this new AW MAP is causing problems for a roster even I have (tier 2 btw)

    Just wondering what other people’s thoughts are? I was already stressing about platinum rewards as they are.. this new map is making me wanna ditch AW all together and make my alliance focus completely on AQ.

    Am I being a little over the top here I dunno maybe just outa my comfort zone a little at first glance.

    Just wondering how others are feeling at this moment? I’m just fearing a lot of good friends/players I play with at the moment aren’t guna take this update as well and fear they may quit, and ultimately the gaming environment we’ve created as an alliance is what’s keeping me playing...

    Is AW worth it anymore?

    I think they will change it if it proves to be too hard. Play out the offseason and don't burn a bunch of items.

    AW is just not worth it anymore. No increase in rewards and this new map blows. Our ally already ditched it and we used to be a Plat 1 ally.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, nice to see it’s not just my alliance.

    It’s honestly mindboggling that Kabam could release such a stacked AW war map like this without offering anything in return. Everyone should abandon war at its current state. It’s complete and utter bullllllshieeeeettt

  • Mcord117Mcord117 Posts: 1,287 ★★★★
    People will still 100% the map, they know this, it just cost more to do it now

    They absolutely put zero thought into how these nodes would interact with arbitrary champs.

    I wish they just got rid of synergies for AW, and kept the same nodes, just a diff swap up on the map... this would increase difficulty enough
