Author Topic:   New Clan War Setup Starting December

I'm going to go ahead and just make up a new setup, sorry for going unilateral.

1)Since, clan wars are suppose to be limited to 5 players, but clans continue to field more than 5 players. Also GA, LWA and DNX can now easily field more than 5 players on any given day. This limit will be abolished.

2) To make it fair, clans will have the right to make alliances and field a combo-clan team. Although this has been done in the past, the frags use to be split up between the respective clans, this will change. For example if BWL-GA team-up for a clan-war and their team wins both BWL and GA will get a 1st place victory on the ladder.

I hope the new ability of alliances will add an extra dimension to clan wars. In real wars there ususally isn't 6 armies going at each other, but alliances made and then broken and so forth.

The rules for who can make alliances are simple. If your clan placed 1st or 2nd in the previous clan war they can not make an alliance. All other clans are free to make alliances as they wish. An other condition is that alliances have to be announced before the start of the clan war. Also, if an alliance wins or places second in a clan war those clans can not make the same alliance the next month.

Enjoy the new clan war setup. I hope this is fair for those small clans and I hope this is fair to the big clans who want to get bigger.

The survival of your clan at the clan wars is in your hands. Develop your strategies accordingly.

sounds great Coax...thanks for speeding time thinking about it.

Matrix...I would like to start doing Master Flag updated zips. We will add it the big zip but most people only need an update.

Well give it some thought...I started with the race ladder mods...most of the racers only need a few new ones.

Just my 2 cents worth - think the concept of alliances goes against the whole grain of having clan wars. Frag ya later JT

If you have a better compromise for when LWA fields 6 and BWL only fields 2, I'll be more than interested to hear it.

We can make a note on the clan war ladder that the format has changed. By the way this isn't permanent, lets just try this for 3 months and if no one likes it or utillizes it, we'll switch back to the old.

Coaxs, are you also suggesting that the server be "open" (ie not hidden)?
Can those not yet announced clans be a part (thinking of T3S)?
How about non-affiliated players? Can they be recruited for a clan battle if they choose to wear your colors for a game?

1.) I see no reason to make the clan war visible, so that rogues can pile in.
2.) I think they should announce themselves before they can take part. Only takes one post at this bboard to do it and an e-mail address to send them the ip.
3.)non-affiliates are just that, they can not be recruited. LWA was made so that non-affiliates have an ability to play, so they can join them, but even their member list should be posted some place in advance.

pffft.

Why make these rules up?

BWL will own and continue to own the ladder.

The reasons are listed above. Clan war limit rule being broken repeatedly, tired of seeing 2 BWL get their butt kicked every week, LWA huge in size compared to all other clans. This is just a way to balance size out and try to add some fun. Anayways a 5 clan member limit is too low when factoring in turnout from other clans and that GA, LWA, DNX can all field more than 5.

Lets go with the experiment. If it don't work-out, it don't work-out.

GA has YET to field more than 5 players, and can barely scrape up our 5...

If you define active literally then we have about 4, maybe 5.

I agree whole-heartedly with the first four, especially if it is for racing, but the last three, I at least have not seen on the servers lately. I also can't even see them as having been on the a server with logscan since the last time it had it's names dumped.

GoldAnt, I think, has been busy with school and not sure if he can make Sundays easily either. Jon will readily race, but he doesnt' prefer DDM's, and Herc is in the UK and has to work Monday mornings, so doesn't like to stay up so late. Generally we can count on Cyber, me, and 666 with the others being iffy.

Any clan war played using the alliance method will be noted on the ladder as such. We'll take a vote at the end of 3 months to see if we want to keep it. The main reason again for it is, for small clans to have a chance to win and for big clans to grow bigger, because there is no reason for being in a clan if you are limited to 5 in a clan war IMO.

After seeing the lag today, we might have to just go back to a limit if the lag gets worse next month, make sure you arrive early so you don't lag the rest of us.
