How can peopple get 15 raids every day while I get only 10 raids per day?

This makes the  raid rankings not fair...

Because then it only will be ruled by those who get 15 raids per day...

Good afternoon pauwe6:

Search for "Buffs" in the Guide (the "?" icon in the toolbar top centre), this section explains how "Capture the Flag" tournament rewards may be applied to coalition members for a limited period of time.

Cheers

Below is an old screenshot from the results of a "Capture the Flag" tournament, showing two active buffs of my (then) coalition, and a debuff thrust upon us by some lying, conniving, dastardly enemy coa :-).



PPS: Buffs and Debuffs remain active for seven days, then it's back to the daily drugery :-).

No, they revert back to the standard 10 raids per day, they earned their higher raid total by competing in a tournament, There are dozens of reasons that make ranking competitions unbalanced: the speed of one's units, their carrying capacity, remembering to hog available raid attempts before a new week begins, the amount of scouting one has done in preparation, the availability of bots nearby, and many, may more. 

Ranking battles are not antiseptic 100-metre dashes with a doping test at the finish-line, they match players with very different abilities and shortcomings, and the combination of these ... including a bit of luck ... will decide. :-)

think of it as a week long reward for doing well in what is actually a fairly difficult coalition tournament that needs a lot of coalition cooperation and teamwork, the buffs only last a week anyway and if I am being honest they totally mess up my following weeks raids as I have hit all my accesible juicy farms while its activated :)

A week could me the difference between a win and a lose in the tour the France...

So in your eyes P its good what Lance Armstrong did to win the tour??


You should get that raids away from the buffs!


It allows us normal players to not function normal 

AND WE WILL NEVER GET IN THE TOP 10 OF ANY RANKINGS ON THIS WAY

Well, Lance roided up and beat all the other roided up contestants in that filthy sport :-)

To be successful in any of the rankings, it will take more than 7 days of raiding, sieging or whatever the objective might be, and that does include coalition work, collecting target contacts, training the apposite troops for a job and much more. Prepare for the next Flag tournament, coordinate coalition objectives, discuss the buffs that the Hege should implement, and then use these to secure you ranking objective.Wish you luck! 

Cheers

there is absolutely no comparison between what Lance Armstrong did and the game mechanics here, Lance Armstrong cheated, the coalitions with 15 raids EARNED them, remember its WEEKLY ranking, that means occasionally there is a week where those who have worked hard and gained the relevant buff and applied it to raids have an advantage, one week..... 


if your coalition is either not performing well enough to earn that buff or your heg isnt applying it you need to either get your team motivated, talk to your heg or move to a coalition that applies buffs in a way that benefits all in the team

When the +15 raid Buff is active you have 15 raids per day.


In the First post the picture show “8/20” raids which means 20 raids per day => 5 more


How is this possible ?

Because there is also a +10 buff (meansing 10 raids added to the original 10). :-)

Quote from SWOE Wiki:

"Maximum is +15 raid(1 raid p/h). This can be made if your coalition apply 3 buffs as bonus."
