What's this? A way to compensate the discontinued Unclaimed Glory event?

I hope WG will fix it soon...

Weak. As an aside, the 10 minute limit will just result in another draw in the finals. 15 minutes was not enough time to scout out the turtle in their base, 10 minutes will be even worse.

and I quote.....

"If a draw occurs at the quarter-final stage or later, the judges reserve the right to hold a tiebreaker between the two teams"

if you draw again... I will make sure the tiebreaker is "un-drawable"

Also please note that the eSports team does not run or design the Clan Wars events, thus we apologize in advance for our inability to constructively comment on those.

And the tiebreaker ends in a draw and judges must decide the winner. I called it

We went through 6 rounds of it and I am not talking out of my butt when I say that, if a team is determined to draw, a tier 3 match on Port can be drawn out indefinitely. I will not be participating in the event, I am merely offering my opinion on how to make it better.

This.  And I still have not gotten an answer to my support ticket about the complete in-game crash of both teams from the first event.  But its only been 3 days....

I'm sad that WG caters to the whiners that don't understand basic CW's rules that have been in place a long time.

So... based on player feedback about the map, and given that there was a similar event which ended in a draw, partially due to the map. We have changed the map to Ruinberg, and the mode to Encounter

Seriously though, I'd like a reply to my ticket sometime this year.  Unless thats why they locked the map?

It seems that 5k gold for winning team is a little low considering there are 640 teams that could participate...
