Looks like we'll just have more peaceful HOF hopping through the list and knocking the real fighters off, and all for a few bragging rights.
And aggressive people can't even retaliate. Useless....
Someone clarify how this is a GOOD thing for aggressive factions, before I go rent a pony for myself. To me, and to alot of others, this spells the end of aggressive competition.

My sig is cooler than yours

Peaceful Status should be removed.

I missed The War Times before the update. Boredom has taken place.

If u were to war, u will be crushed by the elites surely simply because there are little waring factions. Big Demand of respect whilst Low Supply of them.

U really think this update good ? Eternal Peaceful status?

Ranking will worsen, all will remain peaceful

Hiding behind this peaceful status, for how long?

Waring faction will always have definite advantage on in the long run.

Could you guys just relax. I will try to clarify your questions for you in a bit.


Thanks Clansdancer.

But why have both this topic and the Torn.com topic been so vague in the description and reasoning?

Every one expected a lot of thought to go into these updates since we waited 2 or 3 months for them. And tbh it seems these updates were ill thought out and just pulled out of a hat.

We are now playing a game with a different name and different rules on how factions run........idk how any one can stay calm. Sorry to say.

Any one should know that making changes like this out of the blue and then posting not enough info and reasoning abut the changes is going to cause a panic.

On a remote chance you'll read this Ched (highly unlikely), but here's my 2 cents (correct any statements you think are wrong):

1. Tiered system divides all factions into 5 tiers, so that each tier contains an even amount of factions.
2. Factions should hit factions in its own tier, because hitting higher or lower tier will result in lesser respect gains.
3. Each time a faction gets destroyed, tiers are recalculated, and adjusted so they reflect the new # of factions.

The way I see it, with this system in place, you have successfully sped up the destroying of factions, because if factions rank 1 are the catalysts of destroying, they will just keep destroying every other rank 1 faction out there, and with destroying them, force rank 2 factions into 1st tier.

Before we had a reason to let smaller people go, but now its actually in our interest to destroy them cuz that will gain us more targets?

Well this oughta be fun. Hope you have another system in place bout 3-6 months from now when you realize this one will be one big fail.

Terrible Terrible update.

There was only 2 reasons i really played this game.

1. Poker - As you all know poker is completely f**ked on this site at the moment due to the high percentage of River wins (About 5-6 times more likely to c all with shit and catch on the river than on proper sites)

Poker needs to be in another format (Not PHP) and the program used needs to have RNG (Random Number Generator)

2. Chaining - As you've said in your first post you want to take chaining completely out of the game when this is a game about attacking etc.

Well done on the updates. This confirms that if it wasnt for the people plowing Thousands of pounds into your pocket weekly you would just shut the game down completely.

Seems to me like this could be a way for people with decent stats to make money: Rank 1 warring factions hire a person with decent stats to join a Rank 2 or 3 faction with a few members that they're at war with to increase the rank and thereby increase the respect gains. Not sure how much a difference in respect there is with each rank or between the levels, but it could be something worth investigating.

I think the ranking system need a little work.
I always thought that chaining was a kool part to the game, why take it out?

This benefits me, but I can see the frustration in the higher factions because this will cause factions to almost always stay peaceful.

Nope..
IRC HITTERS ONLY
Leader: Skin
Co-Leader: UNRIVALED
Members: 2
Respect: 16
Rank: 0
Best chain: 0 attacks
Status: Aggressive
War mode: In war

Perhaps a faction has to be at least 3 days old or something to have a rank?

We have a couple of one man factions in our warbase who are older than three days, some of them still have rank 0 while others have rank 5. There probably still are some bugs...

And do you know what the respect gains are like? I really wouldn't know how to chain without sluts

Factions now have a rank system based on how good the members in it are. Depending on how good the faction members are, your faction will be assigned a rank between 1 (best) and 5 (worst).



This Tiered system rocks!

Everyday Stranger
Leader: Anthony_Luca
Co-Leader: None selected
Members: 1
Respect: 1,017
Rank: 1
Best chain: 11 attacks
Status: Aggressive
War mode: In war

Num Name Level Days in Faction
1 Anthony_Luca 15 540

Obviously everything correlates together into a fine point.

Then we have the flip side:
Bite Me
Leader: MsDarth
Co-Leader: None selected
Members: 6
Respect: 23,193
Rank: 5
Best chain: 1097 attacks
Status: Aggressive
War mode: In war
Steadfast: VI
Enormity: IV
Chaining: III

Very interesting updates. I think we would all like a good explanation..

When you come out with an update like this you should probably explain it all when you release..

Because that step would be logical, and in Ched's universe logic is outlawed.

Or give it more than an hour... give me 24 hours to withdrawl cash before faction dies... No way OCs will be able to get you out of the negatives before it goes under
