Guild Wars - What's happening

FluxxxFluxxx Community Manager Posts: 411
Hey guys,

As you know, over the past few months we have been looking into fixing Guild Wars. This included more than just debugging and looking at minor improvements, but also exploring design changes in the mode that would improve player experience, make the mode more accessible, and reduce the server load on our side. Among other things, we looked to address the problem of being bound to the game for 50 minutes straight (and on weekends) and getting a great advantage on iOS vs Android, as well as high-end vs low-end devices.

With that said, unfortunately GW will not be coming back for the 3.4 update.
We've discussed and decided on the design and format of the mode, and as I mentioned in a couple of threads previously (here and here), for GW we require significant time and help from people outside of our team (people who have their own work, schedules, holidays). Due to this, the implementation part will take too long for it to be available for the next update.

It's true that GW was a priority for this update, but we also prioritized the upcoming Season 10, alleviating the grind, and more. For the winter update, this will be our top priority. I know many of you won't be happy with this news, but the upcoming update will have a lot of cool features and many improvements to the game that have been asked for.

    Thanks for the info @Fluxxx. I really miss Guild Wars but I respect the fact you guys are trying to improve it and make it more fun for all parties. Please allow some players who did well in previous Guild War seasons be allowed to test this new one coming and give honest, clean feedback. I would be happy to be one of those people if possible. Excited to see what the future holds for that game mode. Thanks!

    @capibara my guess would be a quality of life/balance update.

    Excellent news. GW as it was before, no need in the game. Give us a new GW mode, completely different from the old one.

    Screw the iOS experience, that's an insult to us Android users...Apple charges for everything and is a rip off. Come on Creators....make the game better for all of us. This game costs enough without having to submit to Apple. APPLE Users. Please excuse my frustration...iOS is a nice product. I get the free experience with Android and it makes me happy. I am not attacking anybody. Just expressing my disgust with Apple Corp....tired of being stiffed for every dime. I still love TWD NML...thank you for letting me vent... BigC

    While Guild Wars was one of my favorite game modes, I'm content with fixes and as a software engineer I applaud doing the hard thing to get the feature fixed correctly.

    Errr, its Android users who were getting stiffed - the change is to benefit Android, not iOS.

    For reference, I could score 850+ on iOS in a Guild War but 600 was my cap on Android. Broadly speaking, load times are waaaaay more optimised for iOS (even outside GW) so I'm assuming it would require a huge amount of work to recode the processes for Android.

    If it makes you feel any better, I'm charged £9.99 for a bundle on my iPhone and £8.99 for the same bundle on my Samsung.

    I think the thing that GW can be most noted for is bring guild members closer together. Before GW chat was almost unnecessary. Except for star challenge what was there to talk about. Since the introduction of GW we can't shut up. During GW we would be coordinating attack times and patting each other on the back for good play. Since the interuption we have continued to talk and stratgize game play as well as chummy stuff. What's going on in your life, surviving the storms, politics although sometimes warning about what's been said. So I hope GW comes back soon and not too drastically different from what it was. I'm running out of pictures for my slide projector on past vacations to show to my mates :)

    Bring GW back the way it was first used and allow my idea of opening up guilds to play and any member joining and playing on any team they want. Such as I attempted with Team Guild War. You messed up the game by trying to stop it. Just let it be and let us players have fun. Let players join guild that have unlocked tiers and use tokens to buy the advanced rewards. I’m quitting the game after this challenge until GW is brought back. You offer players like me nothing to waste my time and money on. Took over 3 years to bring Chapter 15 which sucked majorly over all and was no challenge at all the top level players and now no guild wars yet again.

    Allow us to reset the story missions from nightmare mode to extreme nightmare mode and start us at level 40 and take it to 50 to give us something to do. I’ll pay a gold fee for that. Revamp the missions to include all the new walkers and you got something better than the Distance. At least make the Distance harder too. It like a walk in the park And don’t stop us [email protected]$$ of the game. Someone call me when it’s fun again. Peace, Thee DoomSlayer is out.

    What I did to keep interested is start a brand new player on a different Google account. Am using level 13 survivors as a level 31 player. Makes it interesting. If GW comes back, I'll go log in again with my top tier player and rejoin my old guild

    Having to make a new account to stave off boredom is NOT a good sign for the life of the game....this coming from someone who has played for almost 3 years now.

    I agree as I've been playing for almost that long, too. Saying that, it IS fun to start all over again
