Hi all. I wanted to make a thread where the GW bracket system can be discussed in regards to a “new top class guild”.
The guild I’m in, called “Gems of Thr0nes” on PS4, was formed 13th of September.2017. We started from bracket 164 at 18th of September 2017
This was our brackets final result table after the first week:
Now in 8 weeks we’ve risen up to bracket 113. That’s on average 6 brackets risen per week. Our bracket looks like this now (sunday, still missing some matches played):
At the same time on guild trophies listing we have risen to rank 25. The amount of competitive guilds on PS4 is low…
I will be posting the results for the upcoming weeks here, just to give an example on how the bracket system is working for a new guild trying to climb through the ranks.
There are of course a lot of opinions and points in my head that could be said about the system and how it could/should be updated. I will post some of my thoughts later.
The main things I want to say now are:
- currently we have no competition, GW is just a freeride for us. The teams we are facing are far too easy and the overall win % for our guild is somewhere over 99%.
- at the current rise pace we will be in “a competitive bracket” (bracket 30?) in 13 weeks, which is late february. This won’t be the case though, since rising up the ranks seems to get harder week after week, so maybe in summer we will have some competition in GW. It’s quite a long grind, what you think?
