A little while ago you created a tournament of champions event that opened up regions that were included in this event. many of those regions were infiltrated with super whale factions that took over by night the whole region and rightly so angered many teams who already had an established relationship with their teams and players. This caused a fair bit of anger to which many boycotted TOc and others exploited as such.
But what about the other regions, Well I for one had moved to an active region a while back for a renewed gaming experience which was short lived as many teammates ended up finishing or going somewhere else due to super whale factions coming in and taking over the place.
Now let’s not get it wrong, region transfers was a much needed thing as many regions were dying and closed for large periods of time so they couldn’t recruit thus couldn’t war. BUT for many region transfers almost broke their gaming experience because teams would feel like 2 super whale factions in 1 region is daft so they find lower down regions and basically mine it until players quit or move themselves. Its become a never ending cycle.
But somewhat needed …
Now we get onto the main point in hand, when you released the blazing hot rewards TOC event you did so days into a stash event … One of the reasons I couldnt move was that i already paid actual money into the stash and wasnt going to waste that money to move not knowing the transfers would be locked for months on end well after stash finished and a new stash would emerge … but was starting to see a pattern here
well before the TOC event you also released a few wars where you were obviously ranking regions in terms of activity and strength. BUT the big failure with this was as soon as you added the TOC event, regions were drastically changed with factions moving in and out of these TOC regions
and now the point is made where an almost dead region like mine (Elmore) is ranked in Wave 1 so we can’t move out into our old region or anywhere else (IMPORTANTLY) on our level of strength/level/activity and all we get is super factions coming in and taking over once again.
There needs to be a balance on all of this. I say this as someone who has only transferred ONCE
