10] Few Bugs
Gotta take notice of the rare occasion when Scopely manages to not dump a crapton of new bugs with a large update. Only bug I’ve seen so far is the war leaderboard.
9] Good UI
There are lots of tabs and help text to explain a lot about the new feature.
8] More time value
Leagues has increased the value of raids and territories, now adding extra rewards to things we were already spending time on previously.
7] Cross region play
A chance to chat with and compete against new communities of players.
6] Faction Component
The faction league incentivizes more activity, and also helps in the growth of newer players.
5] a hint of Proportional Rewards
This may be prenature, but so far, the tournaments like the current solo raid are giving a proportional number of solo trophies. In all other events, RTS has a nearly-winner-take-all reware structure where insanely good prizes are given to the top 3 on the leaderboards, 4th to 20th may get a mediocre prize, and then every one else gets total crap. Hopefully, the prizes stay proportional for each season stretch.
4] Better opponent matching
One of the best part of leagues is that – in theory – you’ll match up with people who should be competitive with you, no matter your level or playstyle. If you feel like beasting, you’ll end up in Diamond or Platinum league against players who also have equivalent enthusiasm. If you’re busy and are going to have a light couple of months, then you’ll be a league with similar players and still have good competition.
3] BETTER DEPOT
Its what players have been asking for in suggestions to change the depots. It looks great. But… we’ll have to reserve some judgement until we see the prices.
2] NEW TOONS
The exclusive toons look like premier level recruits
1] FREE TO PLAY
This could be a great chance for free to play people to have a shot at nice toons. We’ll have to see the stretch prizes, before we can be sure.
