Device (Phone) only EE wars

Postby RedHotVixen on Oct 31 2018, 6:41am

So lets tackle a controversial subject - lets talk about device only wars. and why we should try them

I dont think anyone can disagree with the fact ee wars have barely any participation these days compared to years ago.

Lets rewind back to when they first came out and pre season wars, and seasons 1-2 (lets pretend haxor and GH exploits didnt happen though for now lol) before stacked rosters of S3

The reason they were so popular? because every player in kaw found the wars accessible. Participation was higher, more people warring, the more clans warring, the better the match ups.

fast forwards to now and the last couple of seasons. where basically players are looked down on for warring on a device - yes warring on a phone, in a game with the huge majority of players on their phone. The large majority of current players cannot access a pc 24/7

And that accessibility that was around in earlier seasons (before the nerfing of GH which bought in SH) was part of the fun. We all warred in toilets, store rooms, on trains, buses. Heck i remember my phone provider network went down in my area and i walked two miles in the cold at night just to get signal Another time having to wc and track last minute while out down the beach at an airshow was ... challenging but exciting

The fun where your wc was out and got drunk and passed before the end of the war (throwback to dear Roland for those who remember lol)

everyone could war, and it didnt matter where

But now its limited to those who are able to access a pc at war time. Because those on a device get crap for warring slow, or leaking. And those on a pc get accused of botting or using scripts by those on a device.

The pc advantage has been known for years and its one of the major factors in people just not bothering anymore - alongside no war equips that used to entice us

So why not trial device only wars - what is there to lose? hell even have some pc only wars for those who will post against this because they like their advantage in war even if it means participation is at an all time low, rather than give up their pc

But device only wars, with everyone on an even playing field, wars accessible to every player in kaw, gotta be worth a try aye?

Lets do it

Honestly I think people overexagerate bots when people use pc to war but I'd be happy with phone wars only it sounds fun and anything to get wars back on track so I support this thread :)

I like device only wars. Last time I used my laptop with touch screen confused me by the time I figured out the layout RIP I was Ko'ed. I do think mobile devices are pretty Fast now.

Pretty sure wouldn’t work as driod devices have the speed advantage over ios since a recent ish update in terms of speed. Don’t see how making a device only war type matters if a speed discrepancy would still exist. Would like to add not sure as I use iOS if anyone can confirm

Not a bad idea, can't really hurt anything to give it a go. I actually prefer warring on my phone over PC most of the time anyway. Newsfeed is much more reliable. The only time where PC mattered to me was if ps1 vs hyb in ll matches.

Doesn’t matter if you still leak like a faucet

Phone and device apps are the way forward in this genre of game so I think it's inevitable this idea would be the norm in a medium to long timescale so i support this as its future proof and makes sense in my opinion.

Someone has to give the other side a chance to make it interesting. Not all of us can be "the God of ee wars" 
