CLAN VS. CLAN Tournament - SUCCESS!
For people who don't know, My Team was invited to take part in the CVC Invitational.
It was a Beta test which was giving out to the Top 1,700 Clans.
You can see the details below from the screenshot:
Today, I want to share with you the Joy & Sorrow of the CVC Invitational.
I think it has its good points.
I think it has its bad points.
Overall, I like Clan vs Clan.
I think it is a Success.
However, I think it might need some tweaking.
I want to say this is only my Opinion.
- Everyone has their own Opinoin.
- Everyone has their own Point of View.
- Feel Free to Agree or Disagree.
My team got matched up with a team called "Beer Seekers".
They are a group of alcoholic.
They can barely stand up straight with out falling over.
Yet, They are absolutely destroying my team.
Those drunkards got mad skills!
Big props to them for being able to stay sober enough to click replay.
The below pictures are the current scores + points:
My team has 363k points roughly - The Beerseeker team has 1.146k points roughly
Since, you can see the above pictures, It is fitting for me to start with a few of the bad points.
If you look at the scores, You can see its fairly even in a lot of the places.
The problem is a few of the area's have massive differences.
The 2 Area's of the scores I want to draw your attention to is:
- Faction Wars
- Champion Objectives
My First Bad point is the scoring system for Faction Wars.
You get 2k points for doing Stage 21 Faction Crypt.
You get 500 points for doing Stage 16-20 Faction Crypt.
Why is there such a massive difference?
You get 4 times the points for doing Stage 21 vs. Stage 20.
A lot of the Stage 21 Crypts are not very Auto Friendly due to the AI playing them bad or the Bosses having weird mechanics which can cause problems on Auto.
I understand the game wants to have higher points for beating Stage 21 vs. Stage 20, but my question is why does the point difference have to be 4 times the amount?
Why can't beating Stage 21 gave people 1k points?
Stage 21 giving 1k points is still better vs. Stage 20 giving 500 points, but it wouldn't make you feel as if you was forced into doing Stage 21.
My Second Bad point is the Clan vs. Clan timing.
The game has a Fusion which is 2 weeks long.
The game has a Training Event for the Fusion on the 16th.
The game has made the Clan vs. Clan Event for the 13-14th.
My clan is in the most awkward position ever!
If we train heroes, we will get points for Champion Objective.
The problem is we will have nothing left for the Training Event Fusion on the 16th.
The situation becomes a very awkward choice.
We either go for Clan vs. Clan to get points.
We go for the Fusion to get points.
Either decision will render the other event a total bust.
Are Clan Leaders going to have control of when Clan Battles start?
Or will they always be controlled by the game?
I, personally, would have prefered having the option to do a Clan vs. Clan battle for my team on the 16th.
This way we could level & whale to our hearts content with out either event being a bust.
In addition, The 16th is near the weekend when a lot of my team is more active.
People in my clan have jobs.
People in my clan are busy on the 13-14th.
Its the middle of the week when everyone is busy.
How are we expected to have a chance to win when our team is at a huge disadvantage?
The Clan vs. Clan timing is all wrong.
You look at the team score 360k vs. 1.1mil
It is completely 1 sided, but it doesn't mean my team is bad.
My team isn't a slacker team.
We are Ranked 386 in the world.
We kill Ultra Nightmare & Nightmare Clan Boss every day.
The issue is we only have 2-3 hours to play on the 13th to 14th.
The enemy team could have 8-10 hours to play on the 13th to 14th due to it being there day off.
My Final Bad point is No Clan vs. Clan Arena Battles.
I am really sad we don't have Arena Battles against other Clans.
I want to get my revenge on them Beer Seekers by beating down there Arena teams!
When you are thinking about Clan vs. Clan, you are thinking about a battle.
It will be a vicious battle of wits and skill from both sides.
Clan vs. Clan needs Arena Battles!
Now before I end my post here, I want to talk about a few good points.
I don't want to be completely negative.
The First Good point is the Activity of the Clan.
I think the introduction of Clan vs. Clan has sparked more conversation in the team.
We try to figure out the best approach to beat enemy Clan we are up against.
I feel it has really helped.
My team has been around for like 2 years.
There are only so many Dragon team talks we can have before the subject gets dull. lol
Clan vs. Clan allows an older team like mine to have more conversation starters.
The Second Good point is the Milestones of the Clan.
My team is losing in the battle vs. the Beer Seeker team.
It is a very one sided fight because of the timing in my opinion.
We could as a team decide to give up on this fight.
There is no shame in knowing when you are beat.
However, the milestone rewards give us a reason to keep fighting.
We might lose the fight to the Beer Seeker team, but we are gaining some rewards.
The think the milestones give teams & players a reason to keep trying.
I, personally, feel like the game should consider adding more lines to the Milestone.
The game has 6 tiers.
Each Tiers has 10 Milestone.
My team is on Tier 1
We have MIlestones I to Milestone X which is 1 to 10 bascially.
I think the game should consider doing 1 to 15 or 1 to 20.
It might not seem like a huge difference, but those Milestones help people.
A few of my teammates have felt demoralized by our Clan vs. Clan match.
They say it is completely one sided.
They think we are up against a Whale team.
They don't understand how we got matched up with this team.
There is a lot of negative emotion when you are not the winning side.
I try to encourage them by telling them we might not win the fight, but we can win a few rewards.
The Mile Stone Rewards are mini-victories when you are completely lost.
Yeah, that is what I wanted to say.
Thank you for your time.
