So I understand that Scopely wants to test out new towers, mercs and other new features for the new revamped war or “Total War”, however I’m finding from my faction alone and others that it’s dawning on them that it’s 5 wars for 5 straight weeks.
For those of us who have kids, jobs, and have other real life responsibilities or just want to use their free time for real life ventures, having 5 wars within for 5 weeks is going to wear thin and is excessive.
I understand some opinions may be that you don’t have to take part.
But you do, you feel like your letting your team down and if your a leader or a co leader, don’t have a full faction and trying to recruit so need to be active, this can be trying and possibly unhealthy for some.
I’m not sure what the solution would be, maybe as Scopely is testing out new features to make it more blitz or not make it an intense war so giving everyone standard rewards regardless for it being consecutive, and then just some fun rewards for partaking so their isn’t that pressure to war and it becoming no longer an enjoyment, but a job. But enabling Scopely to still gather data to see if it’s a success.
War is a very much time consuming effort, that is enjoyable but there needs to be balance.
I understand and respect some customers will be happy with it being back to back, but some customers in turn may not.
Hopefully a good and fair medium can be sought, but I hope Scopely understands the impact events have on Real life and that there needs to be a balance to ensure an enjoyable experience that is a benefit and is fun and not to become a pure grind and one that sacrifices real life.
UPDATE - I’m aware of a blitz war being during the wkday. It’s still pretty intense and another point is that kids will be off for holidays as it’s summer holidays.
