When I opt out of a war for on rare occasions, I noticed that it doesn’t take effect for that war. It will keep me active in the war and only take me out for the following one. I have opted out during the prep phase as well as before it and both act the same way. Other alliance members report the same issue.
The same thing happens once I try to opt back in, it leaves me out of the upcoming war and only lets me back in for the following one. Again alliance members report the same issue.
I don’t know if this is a bug but if it is I wanted to report it. If it isn’t I need to know so we don’t kick people who may be opting out yet it looks to us like they are not using their flags.
I think it will auto remove you from war after 2 misses where you don’t use any flags which is fine. However I would like to know why this leaves me in spectator mode when opting in or leaves me in the war when I try to opt out.
