I hope your joking?

even with a 30% boost its like 900/900 increase for even the best players! machine units suck.

and why would FUN need honor? pretty sure they stopped using cannons by now

probably a test to see with how little reward you are ok spending thousands of dollars :D

I would hope this is GREE leading up to releasing a new honor based unit, but that could be giving them too much credit.

l3lade2
04-22-2013, 12:28 PM
Well it does confirm one thing for positive though; There is no way GREE are taking one bit of notice of the forums of KA players.

At a point in time when top guilds are making threats (albeit rhetoric so far) to stop spending gems etc....Gree have hardly done the sensible thing of "I know, we'll put the Top 3 prizes so enticing that it will make them continue to put up with us".

That brief splash screen saying FUN are the victors of the Dwarven Mines is going to be a rather costly reward. ;)

Surely this is a precursor to the release of some new kick@$$ honor units that they'll release right before the battle starts so people try to win in order to increase their honor more quickly.

Something like a super dragon with 2500/2500 stats at a cost of 50,000 honor or something.

I misjudged GREE since I originally posted the New LTQ would start within 3 hours of end of war which did turn out to be true instead of the edited response that they would wait till gem sale was over. I guess they are GREEdier than I thought and want all the lower level new players to rush and get gems for this event which means we are probably going to end up with another guild war by next weekend (May 4th).

its an awful event, 7th reward is already a dawn herald, 1860/1140 unit xD

Considering the Vault Upgrades, New Honor units and high stat rewards on most recent LTQ I'm speculating that Grees long term goal is to very quickly narrow the gap between those of us that are in the lvl 100-125 bracket and our much better rivals in the level 150-200+ bracket so that they can keep the profits rolling in and not IMMEDIATELY loose players that are now being seen by opponents that are 10x and 15x stronger than them. Just a hunch

Obviously the new war prizes are supposed to make us take notice of the new units; as if to say, "look we added new units just like you wanted!"

That they did. But our impotent rage shall never be sated!

Yeah I thought the prizes for the next war were sucky too until I saw the new units they released. Now it seems like top 3 prizes could be huge. Lets see if FUN and RK take the bait and drop even more ridiculous loads of money.

Paulus
04-23-2013, 07:45 AM
"Ridiculous" is all relative to the amount of money that you have left afterwards. Plus if you use a credit card, the experience is priceless, or so the ad on tv used to tell us. Although I am having a hard time remembering what a tv is with all the time that I have spent recently on my KA device, I mean my iPad.

If there is a real spending boycott the placements would still be the same unless the level differences are within easy reach, i.e, number 3 and 4 are close enough that battling would toggle back and forth. Each rank would still get their tier reward and Gree's income would decline to what the 300-1250 range would spend. Then maybe some of the Forum's concerns may actually get action.

Crusader Shout

I can't comment on rewards for the top rewards - only part of a top 50 team "The Crusaders" (as we don't see value in spending excessively on gems).

In my view, these rewards are good enough for another top 50 placement - our focus remains on having some fun.

I'm not holding my breath. I don't believe most will have the willpower to refrain. Once they see the status quo change because a few guilds won't boycott in order to take advantage of others who say they will, the boycott will fade. That's what I see happening. I hope I'm wrong.

Not even a little bit :D

If "fights" means literally PVP (i.e. no raid) you haven't carried out 5,000 yet in all the time you've been playing. So what are we really talking about, 1 extra unit every 6 months or more? Surely GREE can do better than that :/

Cannons, what cannons. Pretty sure they released new honor units but your point is still valid. +3 honor is a joke

The original post was dated before the new units came out. after the change the new cannon is strongest unit available for money/honor. So the top 3 prices make a lot more sense now but I agree they are not stunning

I seriously doubt that they are going to start the war any sooner this weekend.
Probably the are still counting their losses after the last war due to a major glitch in the gem purchase.

Have you noticed, that there are now more prize categories than before? There are now new categories also for top 150/500/1000 in addition to the old ones. I hadn't noticed these before. Also I think the reward for top 1250 was changed.

Spydrax

Hey guys, in war strategy, who is more valuable, weak, etc; guy level 200, 150, or 100, if all three had 150k A/D? Or does it matter?

Rastlin
05-09-2013, 01:15 PM
Level 200 is the weakest and will give the most points, then 150 is the next weakest. The higher a player is from your level the more points they give.

Thanks for the heads up Silent follower! I think the 1250 unit is the same though. But very happy they added more prizes. They should add a bonus to the top 150 unit!

Awesome though that here we are on Thursday night and I can't find a post 1 about this war.

I second the previous account of weakest person;
Ex. If you found someone with a 150 level but only 150 def; you will likely crush him. conversely, someone like level 87 with 500 def, may avoid...

Don't worry. Sometime around Sunday there will be a sticky stating that the battle has commenced. For those of us who haven't yet noticed :D

Crusader Shout

I think this is all going to be very interesting as the top guilds are all organised - dusting off the spreadsheets and lining up for the battles.

See you all on the battle field. Unfortunately strategy comes second, after mountains of gems...

The previous 2 wars started noon PST, as GREE haven't stated otherwise just expect the same.

There's no point in them stating the start time of each war they don't do it for other LTQ's

steve_r
05-10-2013, 01:04 AM
Other LTQs don't require the logistics or time commitment of these wars.
And the ltqs are cheaper. And have good rewards. Wait why are we doing this again?

Make it a year considering I probably have 2000 wins from kok events the rest are failed attacks on me so don't even count. Also I have been playing since release so..... Yeah I am stoked about this prize, sad part is if you were a big pvp'er and stats were bad enough you used honor units I'm sure you would lose 50 in the time t takes to earn one.

Most likely, Goodluck Guys, I just hope we have more members showed up this time, that's the pain when you do and try everything and all you get is a promise they will join the fight and when war starts you find the same 15 members playing and the other half is missing and will get the free reward.

And then the other half is looking for a guild after the war. Just set a minimum points they have to get or be booted.

we did boot some after the last war and gave chances to the other guys, we have new members so that's always a big question mark. yeah we have decided after this war we will be a lot more hard about participation. sometimes I asked why even join guilds? don't even ask me about donations, thats another battle.

moomrik
05-10-2013, 08:58 AM
Why join guild? Why, for the bonuses, of course :) In CC we booted some inactive members seconds after the war ended, as soon as we could, and they did not get the prizes... Ahhhh, justice :)

in KA you cannot boot anyone during the war, after the war they get the reward as soon as it ends. :(

I'm just trying to figure what's the best minimum points should a player give.

Sir Pleazar (S2N) K
05-10-2013, 09:05 AM
We just booted this new member just now, she hasn't donated since joining, she ignores our messages and she hasn't done anything for 2 weeks, we knew she was not going to do anything for us but we decided boot her on the day of the event so she can't just join another guild and get a free reward for doing nothing. seems like the M.O. for some players.

05-10-2013, 09:29 AM
If you get all of your members on an app like Groupme you will find it much easier to manage the wars and communicate. The number you need to boot will go down because everyone is serious and there to play. Let me know if you have any questionst about the app or implementation of it into the war event.

Can you boot them right after the war and they won't get a reward? we use Yahoo, I have thought of groupme since it's compatible with the devices we use, I guess it's the inability of our leader to boot people after the first war and kept some til the next war and now the third war, I think if we make a general rule and it should be for everyone, honestly i'd rather go with the people that I know will participate thus giving us better matchup since we will be less members rather than a big group but only half shows up.

Thanks bluedood, yeah if i can get more infos that will help a lot.

Bluedood
05-10-2013, 10:02 AM
I use on my iPhone, the app primarily uses wifi/Internet connection,but can use SMS iirc. The real beauty is that we have in my KA channel members from seven or eight countries all talking in real time. You can leave the game up and the updates in Groupme do the above screen rollover where you can tap and go to that alert/app.

Sounds good. I am fairly comfortable with it's use now and have used for the last CC event and KA. Getting everyone on board takes time, but once they see how easy it is and how to turn off alerts during down time the app is embraced. I have had to email some users a direct link before, not sure why the paste works for some and not others. Also, the channels have a member limit. The support for the app is outstanding and they will increase the size of your channel upon request as you need.

@Bluedood: You are so correct! As a founder, you must have instant access to the entire guild and an outside vessel providing that,such as what you're suggesting. I use Palringo, however, it's ad happy and I may look elsewhere after the war, but having instant access to the whole group is without question, the primary tool for a leader. You MUST be able to discuss strategy with a group, quickly, and not with email or even the guild chat where you need constant refresh. If you're moderately, actually, any level of a guild, I don't know how you'd operate with this form of communication.
We use guild chat for the bulk of our talking during the war, but there are so many times prior and even during, that I can't see being without.
Nice to see you posting this help though! This is how the forums used to be... Now I'm old!

It is very helpful, both in and out of war. The channel is less chatty outside of event, but we talk about ltq and celebrate the box event wins, as well as assisting new members with ways to improve. All of which are very difficult in the guild chat wall. I wish we even had a way to send a PM in game rather than putting people on blast on their personal wall.

You should jump into the channel and check it out :) I try to help where I can, and the forums are still helpful you just need to sift through stuff just like on any other.

Hallo! First time posting a general question, so if it's a stupid one, sorry. Several players from my guild & I were wondering the following: if you place in the Top 100 at the end of a guild war, do you get the rewards for the Top 100 AND all the "lower" rewards, too, from the Top 150 to Top 1250?

We placed #155 in the Blighted Woods. I know we got the rewards expected for being in the Top 200, but I didn't write down the other rewards, so I just don't know.

It would make sense for rewards to be cumulative, especially with the "top" prize in the Dwarven Mines being 3 honor points.
Thanks so much, Tatum (Dark Elves)

Rastlin
05-10-2013, 06:53 PM
