Now the big question is: why?

Previously, lowland wars had a very low participation rate compared to the other war types. Sometimes they would have no sign ups at all! We are seeing if this change will encourage more players to participate.

This is the only change we are making so far, so frequency and timing will remain the same as the clan lowland wars. We will monitor these wars for the upcoming few weeks and see how they are doing compared to the previous iteration, and will see if any further tweaks or changes are needed.

Happy warring!



Yay! More scoutings! Cos scts win wars!

U an idiot.

You’re not wrong there.

But I’d love a bit more in-depth response from anyone as to why this is a bad change. A highly abused and not so used war format gets phased out. Are those unhappy with this change also unhappy that they will no longer receive a free 600 items each war due to the only other clans participating are FFA clans?

I’m a fan.

Sad to see the end of ee-war clans, but it needed to happen. Dead format with too much abuse. Now just need harsher penalties for inactives.

Firstly ll was the ONLY format that permitted us, players, to choose who we wanted to war with.

Secondly it allowed to strategize based on the builds u wanted to war. No random builds on roster. No open ps. No slow ppl trying to war ps1.

That was the whole and only reason that format was originally created. Easy change of build according to wc strategy. And most of all choice of ppl u wanted to war with.
Our freedom of choice has been taken away.
The work we put into rosters and strategies was taken away.


I do have a question for devs. What is the purpose of ll indi style?? U can't choose ur roster and u can't choose builds u want to be on ur roster. So what is this crap for. Do away with ll if u hate us so much. Don't come up with more crap for ppl to abuse the system.

You are dumb. Revert this.

Bunch of moles, action seeker noobs and ps opening for other team.

It’s not like it is soooo difficult to cast a bunch of alts and match with them in ll indi. I’m gonna exploit this ee system until you guys realize how dumb this decision is.

Oh I absolutely LOVED ll wars back in the day. Nothing as exciting as the combination between build composition strategy and player skill. But that’s not what it is these days. Here instead you see a war clan putting in effort or a ffa clan spamming wc to get a roster. Half the time it was all a waste bc no matchup, and the other times it would just be a ffa clan full of inactives giving a free win.

When is the last time you saw a true LL war matchup of two skilled rosters and WC’s??

NE vs exi, Exi vs IDD, Rage vs Link, Rage vs Engeneeringfail.

Devs already cut on ll war format 6 months ago when they introduced ka wars. Ll went down to one war per 24 hours. That 1 change was enough for those chasing war lb to still make top 10 or top 50 without a serious ll clan. Serious clans remained still. Wc's remained.
The problem is not in lack of interest in wars. I see it in loss of interest in a buggy 1D "strategy war" game that requires u to p2p for growth and kills the choice of strategy in vitro.
