Hello players,

It has come to attention that there is still some confusion surrounding the changes made to faction membership during the WD events. Here is a simple explanation to those changes:


If you are in a faction at the start of the event, you may leave a faction but you cannot join a different faction or rejoin the same faction.
If you are not in a faction at the start of the event, you may join a faction.
You can leave a faction, but you cannot be removed by faction leadership during the event.


Please let us know if we still need more clarification.

We had 2 guys joining our faction on the last day. Both was in a faction before joining us! So is that a new change?

In generel we need you mods back and tell us about prizes, events, changes etc.

Unless you made further changes since Greece, Tadaaah, you're wrong. I was in faction at the start of the last war, was invited to join another faction halfway through day 1 and was able to leave and join. I lost my points for the individual thingy (but funnily enough I wasn't reset on prizes, so I had 29/30 and 9/750 when I looked). Thankfully my individual score on yah leaderboard didn't start from zero.

I wish support and devs would actually talk to each other. Isn't this embarrassing to you?

I think there's a little programming error or something that still allows people to leave a faction during war and join 1 other. they cannot leave and join a second however. i think it was just overlooked and they may not know of it

Hello,

This is the information we received from the development teams. We are double checking to see if any additional changes have been made and if these changes are indeed working as intended.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. If indeed this is the wrong information, then we will now know to either A) better our lines of internal communication or B) know these features are not working as intended and report the bug for fixing.

We want to make sure that receive the correct information.


UPDATE: We have confirmed these are the intended functions. If this does continue during the next WD event, please send in a support ticket with as much information as possible about both the players involved and factions involved. This could include invite codes, player name, faction names, and commenting on a player's wall to help us find them faster. Thank for bringing this to our attention.

Thank you Tadaaah...
I know I speak for many players when I say this...
We appreciate your logical approach in addressing these issues... and the same goes for your clear communications... we have all been the "the new guy" at work... so don't take any negative comments you receive personally... many of those comments are posted in fun... providing entertainment for the rest of us... so far you are doing a great job!

So just to be clear. You want us to report problems, glitches, hacks, hackers etc.... But we can't get a simple prize list for Ltqs?

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm not worried about it; once we all get to know each better, I'll probably post some fun remarks in response.

Please keep threads on topic. Yes, please report problems, glitches, hacks, etc. A "simple" prize list may not be as simple as you think. If there is a chance that something on that list may change, then we don't want to provide you with incorrect information. In the short time I've been here, I have already seen many posts saying you don't want incorrect information.

Shouldn't the events be tested and completely thought out before they are released and we are allowed to spend money on them? If things are changing on the fly after they are released to production you have a major problem in your workflow. It SHOULD be a very simple task to deliver a prize list and a rundown of how the event should work.

It's a bug then. During Greece WD, players were able to leave a faction and join others factions. You could only leave when the faction was not at war. You could only join when the faction was not as war. Maybe the intention was "if WD is active" but the implementation was "if faction is at war".

Wait... Whaaaat? This is the form of words you use when you want us to help you catch someone who should be in the naughty corner. You want us to report players who leave factions and join others during WD, and the factions involved? For what purpose? Are they doing anything wrong? No, they are simply playing the game by the rules your code sets.

Apologies, but you may be misunderstanding. This isn't to punish anyone, but to confirm that a there may be a bug/glitch.

Tadaaah,

You have the right attitude. Keep it up and you will win a lot of the naysayers over quickly. Others, however, aren't happy if their gums are flapping about something negative.

In a round about way, what you are confirming is that you don't have confidence that the company knows what the prizes are, not even at the start of an event. Don't know too many other casinos where you aren't told what the prizes are before you place a bet.

It is not a lack of confidence. Planning starts often months in advance, but the nature of the video game industry as a whole leaves room for change and quick change. While we are in discussion on how and what to announce in terms of prizing, we want to make sure we have all the wrinkles ironed out before moving forward.

Note: This thread is for the changes made to WD in regards to factions. Please keep the thread on-topic.

We are keeping the thread on topic because it is in a direct response to something you said. Events should be tested and complete before they are released for us to spend money on. If they change in the middle of the allotted time, even if that change is a prize, that is a big issue. You can see what big change does using the ongoing example.

Sorry, but that is complete #%. Other than FA, the games you have been rolling out, which have been the most buggy, are those that you have been running over and over again. If you want to be back on topic, if you did some serious beta testing, it should be obvious that what your developers have been telling you and what players are able to do are completely different. Clearly, you aren't doing enough testing and the actual testing is happening while the event is live. To go back off topic, there is no reason you have not made up your mind about what prizes you are going to award until the last minute (well unless sup asks you to). As fast as the industry changes, you think it changes the prize after the event has started? Sorry that you are the new guy here, but taking a page from Apple's customer support by having boiler plate answers that have nothing to do with the issue isn't being responsive at all. Seems like the quick changes you are referring to is the change Gree makes to fix bugs during the event, not before. You've gotten so scared of the refund requests for wrong awards that you no longer publish them. Be straight and honest with us and you'll get the same treatment. You give us a pile of #~{, treating us like we don't know what we are talking about, then you go into hiding like some of the other mods.

The prize list for wd is announced in game long before the event. But any event in between is not certain...? Why would the prizes of an ltq be altered during the actual event? Wouldn't it stand from your viewpoint to not list the wd prizes aswell?

To stay more on topic, it obv is a bug if you are being told it's not possible to hop between factions at any point in wd. My main qs would be I thought you mentioned saying a lot of the employees play mw?

So why is it so hard to know about some of these bugs and glitches? Devs say it's not possible to hop factions, clearly it is. Why do you all need us to report these players doing what you all say shouldn't be happening during wd when you yourselves as employees of gree, could easily test this yourselves and skip the middle man part, being us?

Ok so a special 24hr war, but the same att and def rewards. Really disapointing.

So are the prizes shown in game for the 24 hour war or the full war?

Do the prizes stack like full WD events or do you just get the prize for the tier you are in?

Or do we have to guess whether the event is worth spending gold on when WD is a week away?

Not quite sure of your line of thinking here but I think 2 wars in 7 days is taking it a bit far.

You told everybody that you are in top 1500 faction. Lol you are such a trolling bird.

Genen,
the guy actually posed a very serious and relevant (albeit no so much for him) question. So please exercise some self control over your incessant bird fixation. I'd like to know as well: prizes, starting time, any possible changes compared to regular wd (except duration), etc. Tadaaa, why hasn't this been communicated already?

Do forts need to be bought as well as in a regular WD war? and why is GREE throwing this event in...what is the purpose?

Welcome Tadaah,
Your approach so far is a breath of fresh air and I would like to welcome you to the community.

On the topic at hand, I was personally able to move one of my player accounts from one faction to another during Armenia WD. I was 1) in faction A who was not doing anything. 2) I quit faction A on Saturday about 24 hrs after the war started. 3) I joined faction B later that afternoon/early evening to a faction that proceeded to finish top 400.

It seems that the above operating procedure is still in effect so I'm sure everyone would be appreciative of you checking with the developers for further clarification.

We'll can't remove my bottom feeder account from a faction now that WD has started so I would suggest you review your post about WD changes.

This is a very good point!

We are currently in the top 50 and need to know if the prizes stack?

If they don't we will slow our pace...

Please confirm.
