Heres an interesting idea.

Front line fields make them capturable like the old way but when a country gets reduced down to fields near its HQ only then must the new system of following a certain path of capture kicks in....

I dont see why you should restrict a new system why not mix it with the old?

Some of the bigger island maps that I miss would suit this.

yeah, it is better ;)

i agree that some squads are going to get upset over this, but try to remember it's a game, and you shouldn't take it so seriously. it's great fun to end up in a good fight with a friend in the MA, and even better if it's a squaddie :) be less 'loyal' to your 'country', relax a little, and have a good time.

the point of AH isn't the war but the fight, be it fighters bombers or GV's. imagine a great dogfight with a good friend, bombing a base defended by some good mates, or duking it out in tanks together.

that light hearted fighting is what it's about, not some virtual field numbers :) having fun with friends, with or against, is always a blast. try to keep an open mind and relax a little, you might just enjoy yourself ;)

and sorry if i've been rude in the past :)

how about instead of madly trying to get to your squad, they come to you?

if the arena is getting locked up because of inbalance, then why don't they all switch, open up the arena for free play again, and you still get to fly together, everybody wins :)

it's easier to debate a topic if people are understanding and sensible than if it's an all out word war, where nothing gets done. if you don't like it, don't complain and threathen HTC with leaving etc, but suggest another way of doing it ;)

The "flip" side of the story....

for all the possible "squad whinning" its interesting how many have left there previous squads as they've seen them become "gangbangers". The really good squads have as much fun killing each other as anyone else....The squad I'm with tends to move away from the arena where we have numbers....not due to any eny (we tend to fly high eny birds alot) but for better game play. Sometimes we "win....other times we "lose" but by and large we always have fun.

Personally I think this is a big step in the right direction...

well, the important thing to remember is that this is a game, and that you shouldn't take it so seriously :) if you can't get to bish, and knights are heavily outnumbered, go to knights, and ask your guys to come with you.

that way you keep the arena balanced, and fun for everyone, and you still get to fly with your mates. don't feel you need to be loyal to your country, it's only a virtual chess piece. who knows, you might even make a few new friends :)

I dont like it.
I have'nt liked the recent changes for various reasons. Now we are going to have to sit in the tower and wait, or switch countries, for the sake of balancing.
Do you really think this is going to work?
Why is it, everytime someone disagrees with something, they are labeld a whiner? I'm sure someone will enlighten me with some disparaging remark.
Tell me the benefit of the orange arena, please. I have'nt seen it.
Why bother with early and mid war. They are barely populated.
People will determine the outcome by either continuing to pay, or, they will simply cancel their accounts. Which will it be? Time will tell.
Hope this does'nt get deleted...

I think that either of these approaches could be good ALONE, but I have hard time seeing how they would work together.



After some thought I figured a way (of gameplay) how these 2 new changes could work together, especially on large maps.
It can easily evolve into a milking contest. Which country can be most efficient and quickest to capture enough of the other 2 countries empty bases? Usually there are much fewer willing defenders (against greater odds) than attackers with good numbers.
So it might actually work... if the winning country is not required to defend its own original area while conquering the enemies in balanced countries. Or if it has better defenders at some areas and efficient attackers at other areas.... meening overall better players than the other two countries (dunno how likely that would be).

This game is now no longer the same game that I loved playing 2 years ago, I've lost the buzz lads :(
