I’m assuming everyone’s War prep time started 6 hours earlier today than previous weeks.
While I understand that the prep time length and War start times have been deliberately left unpublished, this is a pretty frustrating change. We had a couple players out mercing and they are locked out of the war. I’m sure this is a pretty common problem for alliances.
It is possible that SG has a good reason for this that is not related to the ongoing efforts to limit mercing. But if not, I wish they would just drop the hammer and just go back to the ‘you cant hit the first titan when you join an alliance’ rule and kill mercing flat out. Or at minimum let us know what to expect.
For those of you who know me on these forums you’ll recognize that this is a rare complaint. I’m generally very understanding of SG’s motivations and give them the benefit of the doubt. This change has me kinda ticked off as it punishes alliance members who are not doing anything other than fighting the good fight.
Coming on the heels of a fairly trying war with multiple critical game affecting bugs requiring hot fix roll-outs, this is especially discouraging.
