There was a proposed changing of Guild Wars scoring in 2017 that would take the top 27 scores from each guild instead of all 30 that was never implemented. I’m here to suggest that this change actually does get added to the game asap to even the playing field.
In the current state of Guild Wars, a team is immediately out of contention if they are down even ONE player. We’re unable to replace a player come Tuesday, so there is essentially nothing that can be done. There are many legitimate reasons (and a few with malicious intent) that a guild would be down a player or two. Implementing the top 27 scores would solve many issues for many guild leaders, and overall make GW a much more competitive event. Most players have only kept playing Gems of War to play GW, as it’s currently the only competitive and skill-based event left.
Why should 29 dedicated members who put in hours and hours of effort immediately be docked and out of contention if one person is on vacation, in the hospital, has a power outage, doesn’t log in, or any one of the thousands of reasons a guild could be down one player? What if they have a new recruit or two who’s in a higher bracket for the first time and needs an adjustment period? What if one person decides to leave on Tuesday, out of spite, to punish the guild? Should the entire guild suffer for any of these reasons? I have spoken with many of the top ranked guild’s leaders and we all agree that this idea of top 27 scores in GW is The Best way to fix the current state of the event, and would generate a lot of interest and support. A change is long overdue, and some have suggested that even a top 25 implementation would be better. The idea has been presented in the past, so let’s all try to make this a reality!
Post below if you agree or if you feel I have missed some important points on why this change is badly needed. I appreciate any and all support on this matter, folks, and I hope that we can get this done before next GW.
