It is a shame they got rid of tier 8 and everyone can thank the top clans in citadel that threatened a boycott if the tier 8 map was not removed. Anyhow as long as wargaming continues to cater to the few at the top the rest of the wot community that wants to participate in clan wars but don’t have the means or skill to compete at tier 10 will be screwed.

 

Load started at the tier 8 map for its first two seasons before moving to tier 10 and although we would not fight in tier 8 if it was made available again, other clans should have that chance to get their start and make a name for themselves. It is truly a shame that the few at the top rather have the tier 8 gold to themselves than allow the game to expand and encompass more players of all skill levels.

 

A lot of clans got gold by completing objectives. Holding land is not necessary.

Do you have proof of this or is it another tinfoil hat theory?

CW was meant to be end game content, T8 is not end game, plus it would be the most pay to win CW ever. Defenders, Lorraines, M41 90s, T26E5s, Skorp Gs, whatever clan could pay the most would win the most.

Lol Devildog, still arguing for them low tier games? One might have thought by now (in theory) your clan would be pushing on to tier 10 now anyways? Or was that not the objective? Stay in low tiers forever??

to be honest i am completely happy with the what they are giving us this season and i think your looking at clan wars 1.0 though some thick rose coloured glasses because honestly clan wars 2.0 has:

-a lot easier player management (no chips)

-is designed to push teams to battle(gold farming is minimized)(upkeep of provinces [When enabled])

-a lot nicer interface 

 

and to be honest what you ask for is not easy the technical side of the game that supported clan wars 1.0 is likely not even in place anymore at best your asking for a 6 mouth to 1 year dev time and by the sound of what your saying Clan wars is already dead so there is no reason to invest into that subsection of the game.

There were plenty of smaller clans that made gold off the global map last season. You can earn a decent bit of gold without ever taking a landing. Frankly, posting your opinions will change nothing and you have two options:

 

1. Argue with people on the forums all you want and sit out again this season.

2. Take ff8 up on his offer and help build your clan to compete at tier 10.

 

It's your choice, but I can tell you which one will get you farther.

 

Yes, we won about 75k gold, never owning land, but, we made over 100k a few seasons ago, playing tier 6. When the top 10 clans own the whole map, it makes WG look colluded.

Hey Tankers,

It's Global Map time again: Season 8 is coming up!


Season Begins: April 10, 2018, 22:00 PT (April 11, 01:00 ET) on the Global Map.

Season Ends May 15, 22:00 PT (May 16, 01:00 ET).

 

Please check out the Article on our News Portal to familiarize yourself with the Global Map Rules for this CW Season.

 


 

on map rules link....

Tank Commanders!

Season Eight will begin on April 10, 2018, 05:00 PT (April 11, 08:00 ET) on the Global Map. The season will last until May 15, 05:00 PT (May 16, 08:00 ET).

 

 

Start times are both squirrel as heck, and lack matching.  Forum post ones are at least lined up start times, but still placing start day till the next day, at least battle wise going off previous LZ prime times usually being 8-11 pm est, not at 1 in morning (so more more or less a start day of Wednesday the 11th).  The webpage ones from the link are copy/pasted above and are different time than posted in the forum post that also potientally changes start date by a day...(if at the 05:00 pst the 10th, that would make battle pop that night instead of the next day like forum post time, but the April 11 08:00 est start time would be battles on the night of the 11th (05:00 pst to 08:00 est right spread, but are a day apart date wise.  Same issue with ending day.  Just FYI

Stop whining peasant. 

 

 They were just terrible so now they are looking for free stuff on an underpopulated map where any clans there might be are worse than they are. 

 

 

 

Free? isnt it all free do you buy the land you take? do you buy the gold you earn? again shut up Hells.

You're absolutely right. Looks like they switched the time on me after I made my post. I'm guessing our content guys made the corrections after I pointed out the tier VIII discrepancy, but somehow the fact that the times were incorrect/changed was lost in translation :(

The point of clan wars as a whole is endgame content. The tier ten map is the ONLY place where this endgame objective truly applies as frankly tier eights cannot fairly be classified as endgame when you can buy the strongest ones (defender, etc.) from the premium shop. The tier eight map's original design goal was to give clans an easy way to step up into tier ten clan wars, but instead it became a place for lesser players to sit on the map and farm gold they otherwise could not earn through battles on the tier ten map with actual good teams. It wasn't working, hence it was removed.

I am guessing they borrowed the time from the EU post? The time of the day makes me think it's from a time zone outside NA...

But it wasnt removed on the EU server, wouldnt the same apply there as well, Id sure like to see a official link to your statement, since your speaking for WG apparently 

 

The official statement after season 5 was there were bugs and it needed to be fixed, that was the only official statement that im aware of.
