So we started a group to scout out all the wave 3 regions and gather some basic information on them to help us decide where to transfer.
The sad truth is, out of 48 English speaking factions, it’s pretty much the same thing. One or two strong factions that nobody else can touch. It’s boring as hell.
I think Scopely have just opened way too many regions and spread the player base too thinly, as a result all the grinders, spenders and competitive players end up rising up and joining the best factions, as there’s not nearly enough players per region these top factions cannot be challenged and sit at rank 1 farming all the best rewards and widening the gap.
I can testify to this as its exactly what happened to us in Lewis. Our faction, Sargasm, formerly Huns has always been rank 1. We’ve won every war, every faction event, held 4 territories at a time when they held territory events, since the region opened. Its boring.
What I propose is that rather than have 48 regions of 1 or 2 strong factions and a bunch of small factions, Why not condense that. Have a bunch of strong factions per region fighting it out for the top spots and a bunch of smaller factions clawing and fighting over each other to reach the top ranks. That sounds alot more fun!
I feel the best way forward with this is to try get as many wave 3 regions as possible on board and try and coordinate us all moving to the same region next transfer. Scavenge from the corpses of the dead regions and Frankenstein a super competitive, active region!
