From the Blogpost https://www.warzone.com/blog/index.php/2023/05/upcoming-ladder-refresh/
"Today, ladders use a 3-day boot time. This made sense back in 2011, but today we have internet-connected phones and the game is much more accessible. Therefore, boot times for all ladders are being reduced. The 1v1 ladders will use a one-day boot with an additional day of banked time (for a total of 2 days). The team ladders will also use a one-day base boot, but give three days of banked time (for a total of 4 days, which is actually higher than now) to help with teammate coordination. Join ladders when you’re ready to play, not to stall."
If i read this correctly, Fizzer is talking about total Banked and not Banked added each turn.
"Today, ladders use a 3-day boot time. [...] The 1v1 ladders will use a one-day boot with an additional day of banked time (for a total of 2 days)"
Today you have 3-day boot for all turns. With this update you have 2-day boot once.
Like this update would make Warzone act like a Job where you have to come in everyday, do your work for the day and then leave.
With the difference that you dont get free time on Saturday and Sundays or Holidays.
Like the Ladder is MD.. but this would change it to SD (Single Day)
"The team ladders will also use a one-day base boot, but give three days of banked time (for a total of 4 days, which is actually higher than now) to help with teammate coordination."
This would give 4-day boot once.
Which is likely gonna be used up during Pickstage so the entire team is left with 1day boot for the rest.
And idk how Fizzer plans on people being able to communicate their orders on a single day.
I have 3 Proposals for the Boot Times.
2d+1d for 1v1
2d+2d for 2v2 - 3v3
This change is i think already undeniably better than the one proposed as you are guaranteed to have atleast 2days of time per turn.
And for team games you will still get 4day for the picks.
Or another option is to do something with adding Banked Time each turn.
[As pointed out by Vera, the following isnt actually how it works]
We have that feature so why not use it?
One use could be to make it
1d+2d +1d Banked added each turn (1v1)
1d+3d +1d Banked added each turn (2v2 / 3v3)
This is effectivly identical to the first proposal with the difference that you can now safe up banked time for crucial turns instead while still being faster than current 3day boot. (Tho could arguably be confusing for players who never played with added Banked Time)
Or the ultimate option.
Just leave it at 3day Boot. (maybe even add 1d Banked lmao)
Like there is no reason to change 3day Boot aside from unecessarly making the game faster.
There wont even be a reason to stall games anymore for the new ladder as Runs wont be a thing anymore.
