If you thought the new changes in war were a good thing, think again! With the results of this first war, I am seriously reconsidering ever playing this game again. War should be fought on the merits of the players and their teams, instead it seems as if you have made it a joke amongst you programmers that this is now to basically only for the elite. So, now the average player may as well give up now rather than put any more effort and frustration into playing this version of war.
Although there needed to be changes in the buff system, I think removing the extra buff of arrows and enemy advantages would be much better.
