Fizzer released a new update: https://www.warzone.com/blog/index.php/2021/02/update-5-08-clan-updates/
Use this forum for discussing it, since there are some controversial items in it....
Here is my 2 cents:
CLAN UPGRADES :)
Making clans easier to find for new players should make clans much more of a thing for your average QM-only player. I think the system in itself sounds great on paper (I'll have to wait for the next Android update to see it in action), so well done!
Clan managers will finally be able to manage clans from their apps without needing to use their phones browser in desktop mode. Also being able to search for players and show the inactivity will help greatly. (This also removes the need for half of DanWL's userscripts....)
I dont know how many players lost their own clans, but I'm sure it was something Fizzer got mailed for a lot. It leaves me with the question of how this will work when 1 player bought multiple clans, or tries to reclaim a clan while still staying in their current clan.CLAN DOWNGRADES :(
New clans are now limited to just 40 players. This is way too low. I understand Fizzer wants to make the clans smaller and more accessible, but if you limit them at 40 I'm afraid people will just move to old clans without caps that can support a normal clan.
To fix this, while still promoting smaller clans, I recommend you can get a clan at 1000 coins for 50 players. Then once the clan reached 45 players, an option appears to upgrade the clan with an extra 50 players for 500 coins. (Or maybe +25 for 250 coins)Also, on the buy clan page, the 40 player limit is not mentioned either, which I think it definitely should!!
We finally have a notification in the normal idle levels for battles!! This should make the battles much more active.
The checkbox to disable all the popups is also greatly appreciated ;)
"When playing Idle, it now checks periodically to see if a battle is starting." <- maybe Fizzer is just hinting at the 1 hour time interval for the periodic check, but maybe this also suggest that idle battles can also be started off the full hour!?!?
The tweaking with recipes, techs and levels is something I need to play first before I can judge them, but glad to read he made techs cheaper.SUGGESTION ABOUT THE IDLE APP
I regularly come across players from the idle-only app asking where they can play more multiplayer games. I think it would be a good idea to at least link to the normal WZ app in the idle only app.
Also, since the idle app runs on the WZ engine, you can join regular MP games from links in chats and mails. Once an idle player opens those links, they can play that game as anyone could, but when closing that game, it will be gone forever unless they can find and click the game link again. To prevent any issues arising from that, it should be prevented from joining anything other than arena games from the idle only app.
