A problem for new players...

I recently started a new account, because I like to see/remember how things are in the game for people that are just starting.  There is a HUGE problem for new players.

My new account is at Council level 6 or 7.  Guild Wars unlocks at Council level 12.  However, every survivor I have picked up through Story missions have been auto-assigned to “Guild Wars Defenders.” 

Keep in mind, I am well short of even unlocking GWs on this account.

I continue to work through Story missions, but when I unlock a new class of survivor, I can’t add that new survivor to my team because all my slots are taken by useless Scouts that are designated as “GW Defenders,” unless I want to spend 100 Gold to add a Survivor Slot to my bench.

I’m not wholly bothered as my main account is end-game status, but this is a major problem for lower level or new players.

    Can you not scrap survivors who are designated as guild wars defenders? And can’t you just put in other survivors as your defenders and then scrap your rubbish scouts?

    This is true. You have to hit council level 12 to scrap those guys. It was annoying, but I just leveled as fast as possible.

    That’s really bad then, you should be able to access the defenders page before you hit level 12 then and/or not be able to have defenders in there before level 12.

    Leave your guild, scrap those survivors and get back to your guild. I think it's the only way to do it

    You don't need to find another guild. If your not in a guild you don't have defenders so you can leave your guild, scrap those unwanted survivors and get back to the same guild 😉

    As most have said already, explain it to your guild master, let him kick you.. Sort out your survivors then join again.

    Hey, we're aware of this problem. I can't say when this will be fixed yet, but if you contact player support we will give you an extra survivor slot so you have a buffer :)
