This is not fair and should be addressed properly an established alliance treated like isn't good at allI do not know where to start cause this has affected me and my alliance very much and I do not know if we can regroup after that but I will try my best to explain a few things...
First of all I wanna say that for years we play to the best of our ability without engaging in illegal or immoral in-game activities. Nobody in my alliance ever did any TT cloning or run any museum bot or used the external server. We fought and achieved high positions in the leaderboard through our dedication and effort.
While being a top alliance, we never liked seeing other alliances parked up there at the top and doing glory sniping or just abandoning the WWs altogether. We always felt that the leaderboard must be clean from inactive alliances and I have personally sent messages to @Harlems369th in order to run the glory decay script more often.
Having said that, we have a sister alliance called GREEK STEEL. We have never done a war together with the boys there so on the 23rd of January we visited them and as we are not many players, Greeks Reborn was left with just a few members, and matched a team in a single 30vs30. War day was on the 24th and the war ended very late on the 25th of January. So, we decided to just sleep and the next day we would go back to Greeks reborn and resume our wars there.
Meanwhile, the announcement about glory decay went live at the forums but nobody saw it. Not that it would change much as our war was still in progress in its last hours and bed time was near. Anyway, we slept and we woke up only to find upon our return to Greeks Reborn that we have 2013 glory less!!!
I can understand coding something and doing some harm cause a script cannot think of every possible situation and exception. But here, it is crystal clear that we have an exception to the rule.
-From when is it legit to punish 20 people for just visiting a sister alliance for 2 days?
-How is it possible to cancel the 8-9 month effort of 20 players to reach the top of the leaderboard like this?
I do not understand any of it.... We are all grown ups and I believe we can accept a mistake when it is being done and correct it! That is what is expected from adults!
As the leader of Greeks reborn I am making this post on behalf of all my alliance members and therefore I request BHG employees @TheWise @Harlems369th to reconsider and award us back the glory we lost.
Odysseas aka oddin
Ive said this in the past.There was too much to actually read. But I got
The gist of it I think.
Wish BHG gave all the perameters of the glory decay but obviously if they did then the alliances that take advantage of glory sniping and multiple alliances would be able to do the bare minimum to skate past. To be fair I don’t believe there is anything wrong with glory sniping or having multiple
Alliances. This is a strategy game and teams thought outside the box to further their success. Even tho I don’t think there is anything wrong with this strategy I am against doing it. The strategy does not help the game grow our help promote a more competitive leader board. In the end I’m glad they implemented the glory decay as I believe and hope it will promote a better experience for more players in the top 100.
It seems like BHG created an auto script to combat inactive teams along with an attempt to promote single alliance teams. As it is their game and it is their right to do so.
I do agree that Greek reborn should not been hit with this. But we don’t know all the factors in why a team would receive glory decay. Hopefully this was just an over site in the script and BHG can and will resolve this.
It’s the weekendIts been 4 days.. I do not understand why an official response hasn't been issued! Its outrageous..
Let's face it, about 90% of the people in this thread are in the favour of Greeks' GD was unfair and should be refunded.. so it's not even a close call that they are waiting on more opinions or players..
The script was flawed and so, the GD should be refunded, where is the delay at??
i think this not a good idea. We have seen wars 10v with team A had 2 digital age players and team B had 1 drone age plus 1 info age, both loaded with premium TT and 3 defensive coalitions. This discrepancy continued until the middle. Then in the bottom half, team B had Iron Age players and team A had Medieval or Enlightenment players. You don't get 75% of the stars in a war like that, even if you attack with premium like recon.having them lose extra Glory if they don’t get 75% of all possible stars
ok lets do a quick summary...
NO, it is not fair. IF you want other criteria to be considered, THEN this should apply to all alliances. THIS would be fair. Asking only for one alliance is already the first mistake and leads to injustice. Maybe your new criteria also apply to AVANTE BR too, for example, or others.all that remains is BHG to acknowledge the mistake and correct it by awarding us back the missing glory. This is the only fair solution
it is common sense that you have been found to have " failed to meet the bhg expectations of a war alliance" (on this specific date) and thus a penalty is appropriate.It is common sense that the glory taken from Greeks Reborn was wrong
but i agree, that the penalty could be proportional- other alliances with months out of WW, had similar amount of glory taken so there is no proportional glory loss (i.e. 2 days vs 15 days vs 5 months should not all fall into the same category).
