So after the War yesterday, we had a huge meltdown in my alliance.
The alliance had always been a casual, friendly and fun one, but if you opt into war, use ALL your flags, also hit the titan as many times as you can.
This sounded like the most perfect alliance for me and was for 2 months.
But then the leader started to get more serious, wanting to only recruit people with really strong teams and trophy counts - which is fine I have nothing against that. What came with that was the new guys would always give advice and strategies to do during war. Some would require most or all of us to be on at the same time - which just can’t or won’t happen: for starters some of us are UK, some US and then other countries too.
All of us would only try hit targets we think we could take, sure we were all doing “lone ranger” hits, but that’s how it was for ages. Some we lost some we won, and everyone was fine and happy so long as people used all flags.
But lats night a couple of us, myself included had very bad boards and “wasted” some flags. I scored only 9 +6 +9 on my first 3 flags, which was awful. I only went for ones I knew I SHOULD be able to hit and kill yet genuinely bad boards screwed me over. I did make up for it with my last 3 and killed 3500+ with my 2900 teams and total scoer was about 180 which considering my start was good outcome (imo).
But anyway, it all kicked off because we were not following this one guys advice: firstly, i don’t even know if everyone had seen his advice, since everyone is on at different times of the day.
But as one of the members stated in the chat when it was kicking off: he has children, a wife, a job… he comes on to relax and have some casual fun… he ALWAYS uses his flags in wars and does as many titan hits that he can (we usualy always kill 8* and 9* titans).
So eventually about 7 or 8 left and now 2 or 3 more are waiting to leave. They will leave after their chest is full, it’s at 21 so far.
I used to play competitive FPS games on Xbox 360, Xbox One and PS4… not for money but i mean just competitively for leaderboards. I was top on multiple of them and it took ALL of my time, energy and made me have no life. I was constantly thinking about it, it was as bad as a drug, I was addicted and constantly worried that the next guy would overtake me etc. I came to a game like this to relax as well and not be serious. I will always use all flags and do hits on titans… but I am not going to be setting an alarm or missing things in my life so I can come and play it… people take it WAY too seriously! Casual-serous is what I want: casual and not get into stupid arguments like children, but serious that you try your best and use all flags for everything.
My question is:
Why are people so competitive and get so worked up over wars in this game? The rewards are just not worth losing your temper with and getting angry at. I could understand if you was competing in tournaments for money and not just tourneys for a few extra rewards.
Maybe soon I will be looking for a new alliance. But yeah for now… haha the drama in this game is ridiculous
