Going with all arenas, releasing today, and switching back to the old ENY system. I.E. turing off the wait time for the new war win system

Sorry Hub -
If people WANT to spend $14.95 to beta test a new capture system they'll do it voluntarily.

No beta test should be forced on people.

It should be setup in one of LW arenas, with standard[b/] caps.
Why?
That way you get feedback on two areas -
1) Does it work
2) Do poeple want it. Easily seen by monitoring the numbers.

[edit] Well guess the decision is made. Another loss to choices, and a gain for YOU WILL HAVE IT.

Good deal, new ENY all but non-existent, although the basic problem is most people go for easiest, weakest target--which is the equivalent of Allies and Germany ignoring each other and pounding the crap outta Italy to the exclusion of all else, I don't know how and coding can address that

wont this lead to a rotating 2 v1 gangbang never ending,

think about it,

lets say at day1

rook 35 fields
bish 23
knight16

bish+ nit will take on rook,

Day 2
rook 20
bish35
night19

rook+night on bish

DAY 3  
rook 25
bish 16
night 38

rook bish on 38

it in many circumstances will lead to a hamster will of stagnantcy (sp.)

not all, but some.

I bet they will still reset the map after a couple of weeks if it hasn't been won by one side or the other or the other.

I think it's a decent idea, and most countries havent that much organization anyhow...many folks ldo no more than look for the biggest blob of green and head there---they might still do that, but that wont get them the precious reset

 Prove that it's not about "Win T3H War" but being little horde monkies.
Proves that HT would have to keep side balance in place .

Yeah, I am another one who just hasn't switched countries in a long time.  I fly the country I do because I like the group of people that are in that country, and I'm used to flying with them.

I still remember in the old AH days, that sunday was Rook squad night, and if you weren't a rook, prepare to get rolled.

That being said, I like being on the lowside, and trying to defend against the horde.

That being said, I too wish I had some ideas to allow balance to be kept, without forcing those who like to stick to one country to switch.


good luck HT and company, I don't envy your position.

I couldn't agree more.
The first time I log in and I can't choose what country I fly for or be able to fly with my squad, then I intend to do just that.

Why not simply send the two weekers to the lowest side when they log in?
Fixes the Balance Problem, doesn't piss off your paying customers, offers some incentive to actually subscribe, and it doesn't make us beta test all the many methods of forcing balance.
