Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this post.
First of all, I have been playing the game for over a year. I do enjoy it. I have the same complaints as most people about the loot being lacking, but it can be worked around. But, the Alliance Wars really needs to be looked at and adjusted. I am the leader of an alliance. We do love the idea of the alliance wars, but it is painfully obvious that there are alliances out there that are manipulating there alliance scores in order to be matched up with weaker alliances to ensure victory. Either by dropping trophies or letting titans get away or both. The last 3 alliance wars we have been in, our team has been beaten by over 1000 points each time. looking at the opposing alliance members team scores, there is no way that we should have been matched up against them. All of their team powers we clearly superior to ours. It has been an obvious mismatch.
I have read other peoples complaints of alliances only putting 1 hero in their defense team. I know this diverts the remaining points to other members, but it diverts them to the members with the higher team strength to make a tougher time of being defeated or able to score points on.
So I have a few ideas that will deter people from manipulating their alliance scores to draw weaker alliances in their match ups.
In the preparations stage, all members must set up a defense team with all 5 slots being filled with heroes no lower 3 stars. If this is not accomplished before the start of the war, that member will be removed from participating and the opposite team will be rewarded 100 points to their side for each member that fails to set a team to be able to earn points.
Alliance leaders should be given a Forfeit Button. If a leader decides that the opposing team has too great a power to be defeated, he can just forfeit the match and save his alliance from embarrassment of being destroyed by 1000 to 1500 points. If a forfeit button if pressed, neither alliance receives any loot at all. Also if a forfeit is initiated, that sends a message to you, the developers to investigate why a forfeit happened.
One more thing. Please improve the loot from chest and Titans. Give us things that can not be farmed.
