    Everyone who played yesterday got absolutely nothing out of it. Every update just introduces more bugs and doesn't solve long standing ones. Last weekend people were locked out of game. People are losing interest with how easy this game has become and it seems nothing can be done to fix anything at this point. Sorry for going off topic a bit but it's jus sad how things have been going of late and for awhile now. I'll just 🤐 now out of respect to what this thread is for and I guess that's no GWs after a month off from it so goodluck with continuing this thread with some forward progress.

    What really sucks is that a few of my guildmates were able to get the Savior Handgun which along with the new shooter armor are the two most desirable rewards in the GW shop this season. Just because I live in a different time zone, I wasn't able to purchase the gun, but others were (which is good for them!). I think you let the players who played yesterday get all of the rewards along the way to their points scored. For example, if I ended at 2744 GW points, I would receive all of the rewards from the gas all the way to the 2000-point level. Plus, tools, and gas should be credited back as well. This is the only acceptable answer.

    What is the problem with Guild Wars BETA...
    I mean, It's not like we are playing Call Of Duty here where the game doesn't know where a player will move to before hand..
    Oh there might be a glitch here or there, where someone can CAMP inside a rock and snipe at anyone walking past LOL.. But most of the time, these glitches are patched once they are found out..
    NML is not on PAR with the likes of COD or GEARS OF WAR.. So why can't the DEVs sort it out???
    Get 40 testers on a server and get them to find bugs in the game.. Then get them to make 4 guilds etc etc...
    Basically CANCEL Guild Wars until there are very few bugs in that particular part of the game..
    GWs was brought out WAY before LAST STAND.. Yet the focus is on having more people play that by having a higher multiplier.. Which the lower level guys have no chance of reaching 5%.. I used to on Jr account, now there is no chance coz I can't do nightmare mode until I level up..
    I hear loads of complaints about Guild Wars, why not just pull it.. Seriously

    And give the testers a unique outfit usable on any troop with Beta on a T-shirt and the word "tester" below.

    Perks are nice when you work for free ✌️😜

    @Singer01 strongly disagree.

    Even with all the bugs and rebuffs, GW is the best game mode NG has come up with. Period.

    If GW is pulled permanently, they would lose a huge player base. It's not an option.

    @Billdinger I suggest reading the in-game news as you seemed to have missed what has already been said about compensations and the GW Shop and items :smile:

    I didnt mean pull it permanently.. Just until there are very little bugs in that part of the game..
    I strongly agree with you, Guild Wars IS the best game mode.. I love the challenge of trying to get to Island 19/20
    I just lose interest in the game when there are so many bugs left unchecked..

    NEW SUGGESTION TIME FROM ATLAS ✌️😜



    #1 Remove The "Beta" tag from Guild Wars, let the normal war season run its course as usual. 

    #2) In the off season, run 1 week right in the middle of the 3 week break and call THAT Guild Wars Beta. Everyone can sign up for 1 match, if they desire to help, with no leaderboard and no Guild wars shop. Purely for testing out new features or looking for bugs. No rewards. Or if you like, some small reward but definitely not a full shop. I would personally play for no rewards and I'm sure a lot of other players would as well if for no other reason than the practice. Players can offer their feedback on the Forum or through the help feature in game. You wouldn't have to run a guild wars beta test every break but only when you felt the need or there were changes. If the entire Community is the beta test then let's do it properly? What do you say @Lexia

    Edit - heck you could even have a one week leaderboard I don't think it would matter as long as it doesn't apply to The Following season
    100% support this suggestion.

    (this was lost in that other Mercer thread, so I brought it here) @Lexia

    #1 get rid of body piles, they are actually easier for SMY, SPY, PMY than threat counter cuz all enemies come from few locations and are nice and piled together. Conversely, body piles are a nightmare for melee teams. Just get rid of them. 

    #2 Create even more guild wars maps but all of them in the "theme" of the Dim Forrest - Double Trouble. Map. SFC or KTB in multiple directions and then you have to fight your way back to where you started.

    #3 Have Spawn counter be long 5+ rounds and start with 1 or 0 enemies. This will help melee, and negligible effect on ranged. 

    #4 When spawn count is full at +9 enemies, do this:
    - Each additional threat triggers minus - 1 round sooner that enemies arrive
    - Each additional threat triggers +2 level stronger enemies will arrive
    - Each additional threat increases chances special walkers will arrive. 

    I can do more, but start here ☝️

    I would like to see more infused weapons for warrior, scout and bruiser. Also infused armor for all classes.

    Just checking in to see if Lexia has any feedback about implementing this great idea.

    It would be smart to use our great player base to catch bugs before each official season!

    Man, I don’t care about improvements at this time. Just make it work correctly, take it out of Beta. Then yeah, look for other ways to screw it up. I just want this thing to work.

    Umm yeah dude agree. But Trying to make it work correctly is what got us here. They tried, but only made.it worse. 🤷

    We are an average guild with some beginner players and some a bit more advanced. With only getting 18 swords when you have an advanced player and 2 newer players signed up for the war together you can’t even utilize the skills and score of the advanced player because 18 swords is not enough to complete an ABC sector. Even if the beginner players only play against the human enemies (which would be set at their level) there’s no way they could play even a few rounds of the same higher level sector as the more advanced player. Therefore the advanced player would have to play below their level in order to complete sectors with their lower level team mates. So an average team like ours can’t even utilize some of our stronger players. If we were given 20 swords then the strong player could compete at their own skill level and complete an advanced  ABC sector while their lower level teammates can either take on the human enemies of that sector and/or complete sectors at their own levels. I typically score around 500-600 points in the war, but I was signed up with 2 of our newer players that can only get around 250 points. I wasn’t even able to compete at my own level and complete a sector at my skill level because neither of the more beginner players were capable of working with me to complete anything. I ended up having to play down to their level.

    @Katniss I've asked for this same thing in the past, 20 attacks, but it was declined.

    Many believe that the "team building" needed to be most effective at guild wars is actually an aspect of strategy. Meaning, if one team can't get the right players at the right skills to maximize points, but another team CAN manage to use personal more effectively, (recruiting /training) shouldn't the second team win?

    Guild wars was once a team game mode... without this last bit of requiring teamwork to close Islands, players could finish entire matches, wars, seasons without even taking to each other. Shouldn't there be some teamwork in this team mode?

    In my opinion, the GW is and should be a team event and not a "one man show".

    GW rewards Guilds that can pair players to their ability or using lower level players to clear human enemies.
