Tankers!

 

We will be testing Stronghold Advances on Friday, March 10, 2017 at 7 pm PT / 10 pm ET!

 

Stronghold Advances have replaced Stronghold Raids. Advances still allow Clans to earn Industrial Resources by fighting battles, but there are some important changes to know.

  • Advances are scheduled in advance. If you are not ready at the start time, you will not be able to participate!
  • Clans can no longer select another Clan to attack. All Clans that wish to participate in the Advance enter a queue when the Advance is first scheduled to start. Clans will be matched with an enemy that has a similar Clan rating.
  • Advances are only tier X.
  • Clans no longer attack your Command Center. That means, you do not lose Industrial Resource for participating in Advances.
  • You can now invite legionnaires to your Advance!

 

Battles start at 7:00 pm PT (10:00 pm ET) sharp on March 10, so make sure to gather your troops early. If you miss the start time, you will not be able to join late, so be sure that everyone is in the detachment and ready to go by 6:45 pm PT.

 

Hit the "Battle" button by 19:00 PT to be part of the action! If you want to make sure that your Clan is part of the test, you may want to try entering the queue starting at 6:55 pm PT.

 

You can find out more detailed information about Stronghold Advances here.

 

Have any questions about Advances or the test on March 10th? Ask them here!

 

 

For those planning to participate in the test, please think of it as an "Early Access" test. Advances is new and it may work perfectly....or it could be buggy as heck. Hopefully, it goes off without a hitch, everyone has fun and makes mad IR. If things don't work correctly (a bug or unexpected error occurs on Friday), we would appreciate it if you would please submit screenshots/replays/descriptions of the bug in this thread. If fact, we would appreciate it so much, that the first person to report a bug will get something - Clan gold, boxes, Influence, Clan reserves, a mix of all of the above, a different random reward.

 

Because I am a terrible person, I would like to request that any clan who participates tries to break the system. What do I mean by that? Basically, try to stress-test the Advances system. Here are some suggestions, but be creative with the breakage (within our rules, of course):

  • Start spamming the battle button starting at 6:55 pm PT
  • Run multiple detachments from the same clan
  • Add in legionnaires!
  • Have some clan members show up late? Try to run a detachment at 7:05 pm PT
  • Does the system allow you to switch players between battles?
  • What happens if a team no-shows to a battle (no, I am not condoning teams AFKing/not showing....but data is data and if it happens, I would love to hear about it)

 

The most important part of breaking the system....please report in this thread what you did and what happened (and pics are fun, so send them my way)! It's not as helpful to break the system if we don't actually know how you did it.

 

 

 

TL : DR: Let's break $@*#!

As an added bonus, you can earn Gold and Industrial Resources when you submit a screenshot of each tab of the "Advance Results" in this thread! You can earn 500 gold and 5,000 Industrial Resource for a win or 250 gold and 2,500 Industrial Resource for a loss. You earn nothing for a draw.

 

Example of the Advance Results screen that need to be included in your post:

Will the rewards for winning matches correspond to the ELO rating of the clans fighting?

Also, will Legionnaires earn boxes for their own clan for participating?

Edit: super excited for this though, looks like a lot of fun.

From what I understand, the amount of IR earned will depend on the level of the Command Center, the Reserves used and the number of Lines that you control; I don't believe it takes ELO into consideration.

 

Yes, Legionnaires do earn some boxes. This guide should have a good description of how rewards will work for legionnaires.

Will that be clan gold or individual gold? Also how many times can you earn this?

From what I understand of the system, Advances work very similarly to how Raids used to work. Once your detachment is matched up to an opposing Clan, you will only play matches against them until a winner is decided. During the test period, your detachment will only see one other detachment. Gold goes to the individual.

One other question, will it only be 1 advance for that night? Or will we be able to face multiple clans?

From what I understand of the system, you will only play one Clan during this test period. The test only lasts for one hour and you can only queue up at 7 pm PT. You will be playing several battles against that Clan.

Barring any technical issues, it will be on NA East.

SO another game mode where EU based clans will not be able to play because of the time-zone difference. Can a WG employee confirm this if these time restrictions are onkly for the testing phase or will they be permanent, thus killing tens if not hundreds of European, Russian, SEA, Mongolian, Chinese clans?

Or you know, EU, RU, and APAC clans could either play on the server that was set up for them or they could learn to live with events being in the prime time of the continent that the server is set up on.

Can one clan get more than 1 team to get more boxes?It is pretty easy for active clans to get 30+ members online to make 2 teams.

 

And is the clan rating refer to http://na.wargaming....it=25&order=-cr ? or something else?
