not really. GE strictly does guild size and almost every week my guild has far less competition then GBG. Numbers mean nothing if those in the guilds aren’t participating or are already at their max capability before the end of Lvl 2 while your own guild could go well beyond Lvl 4 if the option existed. Because then their same size guild really is working at the capacity of a guild half your sizeThe biggest flaw in GBG balancing is that they don't strictly factor in guild size, not the league you are in.
This I agree with. However you’d have a hard time making it entirely anonymous in a way that couldn’t be worked out or if anonymous have a silent unspoken alliance. It didn’t take long in the current format for guilds to work together locking other guilds out without ever communicating, and then from that later on becoming official allies that talked.The biggest flaw in GBG mechanics is that it isn't 100% anonymous.
I will say it, yes, they need to nerf the camps. Changing the way they stack would be a good first start, but it would probably need to go further.You really want more balance it isn't new leagues that are needed it's basically nerfing the camps. No I'm not actually suggesting that should be done so please don't form a mob and run me out of town.
It wasn't a well fleshed out suggestion, but, yeah, I would probably be OK with that. GBG tends to be fun when we are Platinum, or low end Diamond.How do you feel about the OPs suggestion that because your Guild isn't competitive at the very highest end of Diamond that your Guild should not be allowed in Diamond at all?
Here is a screenshot of our current GBG map in diamond league 1 hour after GBG opened. Before giving my thoughts, I'm going to start a hashtag called #InnoBalance:
When your 2nd grader reaches the final round in the school spelling bee and has to beat an English professor #InnoBalance
When the state championship football game is a local varsity team vs the KC Chiefs #InnoBalance
When you're in the final round of an interview and your last task is to defend a PhD Thesis #InnoBalance
When your niece/nephew asks you to help them study their multiplication tables so you hit 'em with a little calculus instead #InnoBalance
Come on now, let's either make an apex league or make diamond the apex league and only allow the top 7-8 guilds in. If you're one of the bottom 2 GBG guilds for a season, you're out for the next season and the top 2 Plat guilds move in. This isn't hard, there are a ton of games with apex ranking systems that you can copy.
To make matters worse, the ability of two major guilds on the same world to organize amiable “sector swaps” allows them to lock all six of the other guilds into their starting sector with so little access that they can’t even burn their attrition. It creates a bully environment which absolutely ruins gameplay experience. Too bad this can’t be run crossworld so these guilds couldn’t use a game to exorcize their real life angers.How do you feel about the OPs suggestion that because your Guild isn't competitive at the very highest end of Diamond that your Guild should not be allowed in Diamond at all?
That's just stupid. Then you'd have a system where the rich will always get richer. At least the way it is now weak guilds have a shot to better themselves.I mean a single diamond league for each world, not 40+ guilds sitting in diamond where you have 7 different diamond GBGs going on simultaneously every 2 weeks. 7-8 guilds in diamond total, everyone else should be plat and below. On my world we have 42 guilds in diamond this round, and as it's plainly obvious in my original post that should not be the case.
there wouldn’t be a need to maintain top league if there’s no cap in their score. With no cap once they’re high enough they can quit trying for an entire year only doing the minimum 40 and still be in diamond.[...] it would at least ensure guilds are continuously motivated to do well in order to reach or remain in the top league.
Moot point when no top guild is going to do what you're implying they will do. No sensible top tier guild with ambitious members would just randomly take a break and not do anything during an 11 day period. They play GBG for the Checkers everyday rewards and if they happen to be rich, to actually do GBG and competethere wouldn’t be a need to maintain top league if there’s no cap in their score. With no cap once they’re high enough they can quit trying for an entire year only doing the minimum 40 and still be in diamond.
Some combo of increased cap and more drastic +/- points for position finished.there wouldn’t be a need to maintain top league if there’s no cap in their score. With no cap once they’re high enough they can quit trying for an entire year only doing the minimum 40 and still be in diamond.
With a cap they have to maintain position every season because if they don’t they’ll be replaced with another guild
