Guild wars adjustments and updates for the next war (January 12).

Hey everyone!

Some updates about the next war:

Balance changes:
- The required number of players to start a battle is now reduced to 6.
- Gas for gold in the Trade Shop available both on Saturday and Sunday. Each offer can be only purchased once. (5 gas for 300 gold and 20 gas for 1000 gold).
- Big Guild Wars Gas Bundle has now 25 Guild Wars Gas.
- 10 Guild Wars Gas also in the Normal Distance.
- 5 Guild Wars gas at 420 and 800 stars, and 10 GWGas at 1000 stars in the Challenges.

Known bugs update:
- Guilds stuck on the Register/Withdraw screen.
UPDATE: Should be fixed now. If you are still experiencing the same issue, send me a private message with your in-game name and guild name.

- 2 Keys used in one battle
We've heard that some players used 2 keys in a single battle. The issue is still under investigation.

- Victory Points weren't counted.
It's related to the issue above. It occurred only in one battle and with a couple of players. This is also under investigation.

- Increased number of disconnects
We've got a few reports and we still need to investigate it. It might be related to the fact that we had to restart the server to apply some changes today, but we are not yet sure at the moment.

- Fighting guilds with less than 7 players (under investigation)
We identified that it's actually a visual issue. So the guild you are fighting against has actually 7 (or more) the name of some players are not visible due to some server error.

- Fighting a guild that has more than 10 players (under investigation)
That's a different issue and we are still investigating it.

- Some gas from the distance was being incorrectly counted on the interface (but it was correct in the game)
It's a visual issue. Restarting the game should fix it. We should have a fix for that in the next update.

- Weird behavior fighting Metal Head Walkers (not being able to kill the walkers in front of a Metal Walker with Hunters)
Fixed in 3.1.

- "Upcoming Battle needs players" message popping up after the war.
That's because of the workaround we made to solve the players getting stuck on the registering screen. Hopefully, we'll have it fixed in 3.1.
To avoid that, you can withdraw before the end of the war. The message delivery stops being sent around Tuesday 19:00 UTC.

- Never-ending missions (broken objectives).
There's a remote chance for it to happen, we are still working on it to see if we can fix it for the next battle still, but

Future Plans
- We will be monitoring the next battles still to see how these changes affect our results. This is not definitive and we are still open for changes. We don't want to make anything big at the moment and ending up in a situation where we would have to nerf stuff. :P

- Many bugs are already reported and hopefully, we'll have a fix for many of them in the next update.

Thanks again for all the feedback and for all the battles played! :)

    Wasn’t it 1000 gold for 20 GW gas in the TG shop?

    I just noticed that too. Why did the 20 gas gold option increase from last war? It doesn’t make sense that the cost for 20 is 65 gold per gallon and the price for 5 is 60 gold per gallon. Is that a typo?

    Ops! Yes, 1000 for 20, not 1300! Sorry! :blush:

    I like the balance change reducing the required minimum to start a battle; however, not so much the price of gold for GW gas.

    But at least it is available in trade good shop for those that wish to spend the gold to get it.

    Would GW gas ever be available for tgs? Like how we can get normal green gas for tgs?

    Not sure at the moment. We are still discussing the possibility and we want to do small changes so we don't have to nerf if it back.

    I had hoped for better gas adjustment than that. In fact, the price in TG shop for gold has increased from last time. I see the GW rewards in Distance are unchanged.

    Are there any other gas rebalancing changes coming for this weekend?

    Probably we'll keep the same balance until the end of this season. We don't know yet if the next season will have a different balance (probably will), but I'll keep you guys informed if anything changes! :)

    Oh yeah missed that, so don't need as many stars. Hehe sorry @Romeo slacking resumed.

    But still, off week to collect gas makes more sense?

    That's a shame, was hoping for a bit more free gas, maybe could have added the 10 at 1000 and left the 10 at 1300 too. I'm guessing that NG is raking it in with gas sales.

    So now each prep week you get 40 gas from the distance with 15 gas from challenges and 30 gas from guild shop and 50 gas from normal shop for a total of 140 gas each war weekend without buying the bundle in gold shop.

    This means I can do 4 proper wars

    Probably making a video!

    30 gas from guild shop is one time deal @General_Pain do not count that one every war.
    20 (or 40 with reset) distance+20 (challenges)= 40 GW gas still is a lame even from active player. Using gold? Nah, that was not a option

    It can't be any worse than the nerf that the gas has caused on the whole event :p

    I like the idea of earning gas on the off weeks too! Keep it in the distance and the challenge. Maybe offer it in the trade good shop during the actual event!

    The Gas in Guild Wars shop is available every war. (It resets)
    Not a one time offer.

    *10 GW in shop though, not 30

    So we running war operations on liquid gold. That’s some heavy artillery NG is running. 20 gals for 1000 gold only saves us 200 gold or that last 5 gals. Might as well buy the 25 gal bundle for $9.99.

    Can we get an in game GW purchase option if buy GW gas by the gallon like we do to heal our fighters? Experienced players can burn threw 40+ gals per battle. If we want to fight the other two battles we must come out of pocket to use our two remaining keys, it’s gonna cost people like $20 minimum next two battles and repeat on Sunday with a $30 tab. That’s a $50 war tab. Great.

    Hope for a 4 or 5 sign ups per war even 6 is better than nothing.
    All People that wrote about it asked for 4 or 5 max, yet they sadly won't go that way.
    Oh well....
    You don't have to complain too much about the gas guys, it's obvious that they are doing it so people will use more gold or real Money for Gold.
    It's normal to have such limitations in a game with in game Shops though. They have to make a living out of the game after all.
    For us is Entertainment, for them it is work. They can't give us everything for free or with the only cost being time spending in the game.

    Sorry but😷

    It’s a game, we should have FUN!
  • FirekidFirekid Member Posts: 3,221
    @goldenboy hope you also don't spend cash when you go to the cinema and god forbid you would pay for things like Netflix or Spotify. I mean they are just music or films they should just be fun!
