Changes to come.
« on: December 10, 2006, 12:13:40 PM »
Monday we will be implementing a new balancing system. It works with the existing ENY number. It will no longer limit what planes you can fly. But rather when it reaches a preset value, people entering the arena will not be able to fly in that arena for their current country.

You will get a message  similar to you are 3rd in a queue of 3 .

Your choices will be
1. go to another arena.
2. change countries.
3. wait until more people come onto the other side, or some one from your country leaves.

People waiting will always be able to change countries regardless of their last country change time.
People waiting in queue will not be counted in the ENY values.
This new balancing system will be implemented in all main arenas.

The test capture lines will be taken down until we can layout and code some different options.

1. The current zone / strat setup does not lend it self very well to the current setup,We will be change the supply system to work on all your countries fields, hence hitting the strat targets will have a larger effect.

2. The war win criteria will be changed from having to capture almost all of 1 country , to having to capture around 30 - 40% of both countries fields.

3. Will also make some core fields uncapturable in each country.

I like it...

Although i forsee much whining.  Some people have much loyalty to their cartoon chess pieces.

As for the win the war criteria, how about having to capture the opposing country's capital instead?

Sounds like the best option to solve the numbers problem.  In general the new capture system has been nice, as a GV/JABO its been easier to find a fight than under the earlier multi-arena system.  Keep it up!

 Iīm not a big friend of a solution to prevent flying at all for some. I personnaly still prefer the "P40 for all" instead of "La 7 for some" approach,coupled maybe with just locking the highest numbered country for side switching. But letīs see how it works


1. The current zone / strat setup does not lend it self very well to the current setup,We will be change the supply system to work on all your countries fields, hence hitting the strat targets will have a larger effect.

  Sounds very good to me. If it works like intended, the buffers finally have some other targets than just shutting down a field for 15mins. Iīm very eager to see more deep penetration raids by more that single buffs.

2. The war win criteria will be changed from having to capture almost all of 1 country , to having to capture around 30 - 40% of both countries fields.

Interesting. Could stop the gangbanging on one single country

3. Will also make some core fields uncapturable in each country.

Combined with (2.) could give a country the chance of fighting back when itīs opponents finally clash to get the bases needed for the reset. :)

Conclusion: I donīt like the ENY change (yet) but the other changes sound promising to me...

I think just the fact that you now have to capture in bolth countrys  should be enough to stop the 2 country war thats been going on alot .

 I like this one. However I'm a little worried about the whines revolving around mega-squads. Will they just suck it up? Or will they start throwing a fit on how they can't play with the rest of their mob?

 Change from "bash one guy to smithereens" to "world conquest", eh?  Now this should be really interesting. Looking forward to it :D
