  • Clans will be matched with an enemy that has a similar Clan rating.

 

Out of curiosity, will they be paired based on their Tier X ELO, or overall ELO? Just wondering which metric we should start trying to lower this week. :-)

Can a clan have legionaries during advances?

 

Yes, clans should be able to invite legionnaires to join them.

Can a WG employee confirm this if these time restrictions are only for the testing phase or will they be permanent?

 

I can confirm that we will be testing Stronghold Advances from 7 - 8 pm PT on March 10th. Anything past that is subject to change.

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?

 

Don't know! Think of this test as an "Early Access" test with incomplete data. I highly suggest trying to bring multiple detachments from the same clan to see what happens (and if y'all do, please let us know!).

Howdy, for the added bonus, it says to submit a screen shot of ea. tab. There seems to be 2 tabs, is this correct and how do you submit the screen shot?

 

Sgt_Mahoney

 

Hi Sgt_Mahoney,

 

Yes, please submit post tabs when you add the screenshot. All screenshots should go into this thread. The easiest way to add the screenshots is to use an external program (Imgur seems to work best with the forums) and you can then link to that picture or embed it. Details instructions on how to do that can be found here.

Don't know! That's another thing that is being tested with this system :) It may work as intended, or it may be buggy...unfortunately we won't know exactly until the test starts. Also, what's the fun in lowering your ELO ;)

 

 

 

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 $@*#!

Good evening, I'm in doubt about some things, what time will it be for Brazil? Will it be detachment or fortress attack?
Sorry, I do not know English at all

Am I correct in thinking that there is no benefit at all in getting good at this mode?

 

If you do get good, you'll get matched against even better teams, who will knock your winrate below 50% again. Once your clan rating has been hurt enough, you'll get easier opponents for a while. Basically, no matter how skilled your team members are, you'll end up getting a 50% win rate. And you'll earn exactly the same credits, XP, and Resources as a clan of total scrubs will earn. Correct?

Also screen shots are to be submitted here?

Can you remove please the time limitations for at least skirmishes, because our and a lot of other clans can't play even skirmishes (Not even speaking about the fancy new Advances) because the time zone difference. PLS?

Basically, no matter how skilled your team members are, you'll end up getting a 50% win rate. And you'll earn exactly the same credits, XP, and Resources as a clan of total scrubs will earn. Correct?

 

'Good' is going to be relative.  Chances are that they will consider comparable clan ratings (not sure why people think it'll be ELO) to be within 100 places of each other.  IE. DHO-X which is never going to be considered 'Good' is the 54th best clan according to the 'Clan Rating' metric on the site.  

 

https://na.wargaming...n_id=1000008981

 

That likely means that DHO-X will likely draw clans ranging from BULBA (currently #1 - good job guys!) to maybe someone like REBEL who's currently 111th.  Maybe they put you +/- 50 so DHO-X can avoid those nasty Bulbas and get to fight some clan called MAHOU who most people have probably never heard of.  That'll be a big relief and clearly a great matchmaking system!  ;)

 

Aside from time there isn't a real reason not to do this.  There's minimal (none?) loss in resources other than time and credits if you don't win.  On the balance if enough people play you should get a good range of opponents.  The key will be giving clans that aren't winning enough incentive to keep playing so if the matchmaking is really bad, similar to how it worked with TX stronghold skirms where strong clans were usually more prevalent than new clans, the format will die off pretty quick.  All joking aside I never mind fighting good clans as long as I get to fight clans that are a little more at my clan's skill level as well.

It's more likely it's based on a PR average range just like the skirmishes and team battles are, which is why the top clans can have long queue times and basically only fight each other. Bringing in low PR legionnaires helps the queue possibly. It seems to have improved somewhat in skirmishes so presumably they have been tweaking the mm settings. Advances should have a lot of clans from every level participating so nobody should be fighting anyone too far outside their comfort zone if it's working properly.

So I can earn gold by playing as a clanless legionnaire?
And since nobody asked, for the sake of those in clans can each individual who played on a team upload their screenshots since rewards for this event are on an individual basis?

 

Can't wait to get rich tonight

Does each player have to post to get the golds or only the caller/one person? (ie a team list or something? :medal:
