Warning: Incoming sarcasm.
I keep seeing on the forum and during streams how some people want to remove world event from GW week. After all, GW weeks are busy right? You need to carefully plan your fights. Let me show you how hectic it is.
First, some background: my guild is 1.5 years old. For the first year we won first place in every GW. Nowadays we usually still do but sometimes do get second.
And, with that, proof of how challenging GW is:
First day we scored four times higher. Second and third day (today) the opponent didn’t do anything. Obviously, GW is a struggle.
Look at how serious our opponent yesterday was! Three people! Oh noooooo!
It’s interesting that guild is only level 70 whereas mine is 488. How did they climb so high in the brackets? I looked into them more. One person last logged in January 2020. …yes, last year. Another was last month. Only one person logged in recently.
My first opponent today was especially difficult. I really needed extra time to figure out a strategy here. Just look at how absurdly high level this troop is. Thankfully the rest were lower level phew.
Now, I hear you guys. We are mid GW week. Let’s see an entire week to prove how competitive all the guilds in our bracket are. So, here is a photo from a recent GW:
We doubled the next guild. Sooooooo difficult.
So yeah, the community is right. We need to remove world events during GW week. GWs are just so challenging! In fact, on average I spend five minutes a day for GW, that’s so time consuming!
…Obviously, this is a joke post. I just want to highlight why I am so against removing any event running at the same time as GW. 1.5 years of winning and we still fight dead guilds. This week isn’t a one off. This is every GW. Fix the brackets, pair guilds with others of equal difficulty, and then it’d be a fun event. Until then, please devs, don’t remove other events during GW week.
I can hear some people now saying bracket one is difficult. Congrats? That’s a minority of players. There are equally good guilds who could make it even more difficult but they’ll take years if ever to reach that bracket.
Obviously my guild is not one to ever compete in bracket 1 even if brackets are fixed. I’m not looking to be in that. I just don’t want dead guilds or guilds so far below us in points.
The concept of guild vs guild and brackets isn’t unique to GoW. Sometimes for new guilds it takes a couple runs before the game settles you into your appropriate bracket. But 1.5 years and still nothing? I do like the concept of GW as much as I complain, but it just doesn’t work except for older guilds.
Fix brackets, then remove other events in the same week. Until brackets are fixed, let the rest of the players have something to do like world events.
