How can they have 31 defenders when there is only 30 spots? I have uploaded a screen shot.
One possibility: Someone left their alliance during the prep time beforehand (24 hours), and therefore shows on the screen, even though they are no longer there.
As of this minute, there are only 30/30 members in that alliance:
Whatever happened, it’s still a bug.
@DrDeath Thank you for reporting this issue - we’ll look into this asap!
Our current opposing alliance had a member leave, that defense team disappeared too.
Interesting. Sara’s on it. Let’s see what SG says…
The alliance we are currently matched up against in war has 31 teams. @Petri
Thank you for the report, we’re investigating this here.
Does this mean alliance leaders and co leaders are exploiting a glitch in the system that is giving them an unfair advantage? It is common knowledge throughout the game that you’re only supposed to have 30 members. This team obviously knows they have 31 and are clearly okay with bending the rules. Also does this mean you can now add more than 1 extra member to your alliance? So far we’ve seen 31 members but is it possible for an alliance to add 7 extra members? My members were kind of disheartened by them having 31
members and basically gave up when we were tied because they’re tired of the glitches effecting their ability to play - some are still having problems with leveling while in war (we had two of our weaker members instaspawn earlier and they ended up getting farmed before the 5 hour marker, you’re expected to have 30 heroes for War but you can’t even level other heroes while in war to give yourself better odds. The revenge arrows need to be nerfed in some way 25% of your HP is ridiculous especially in the amount of time It takes to fill the bar. Now you have alliances exploiting extra hits. I’ll post screeenshots of how many hits they get when all is said and done. Currently they’re at 28.
Long ago I learned it is not worthwhile to ascribe motive to people. The 31 member bug is new, and as far as I know no one knows how it’s happening. It seems just as likely that this is just a bug that simply happened with a few alliances through no act or intent.
The important thing is that it’s on SG’s radar to fix.
Don’t take the wars too seriously!! They are a game within a game, with little consequence. Enjoy.
You should not be discouraged as this is an advantage to your team. 31 players didn’t attack only the 30 that were active in their alliance. So you have 31 targets to attack which could be advantageous depending if the 31st is a weaker team. Good luck!
Hmm. Odd. And it says “Members 30/30” on top. @mhalttu?
Yep, that alliance does have 31 members. I synced the war scores and created a ticket with the developers on what to do. In other words, what to do with this specific alliance and how to avoid these kind of (admittedly rare) issues in the future.
It’s definitely a bug but it’s good for you guys don’t you think. Extra target to be hit.
Also 6+ enemy flags
