[MEGA] Upcoming Grand Arena Championship Division Changes

Replies

  • It mentioned no change for fleets. Does that mean 2 defensive fleets until Div2? Or that 2 defensive fleets would start at the same GP level (3.8M) which would now fall in Div5.

    I like spreading out the divisions and adding more defenses- so I think this is a good move. I'm hoping the 2-fleet defense doesn't wait til 6.65M GP in div2. It would be nice to start that earlier- say div 5 or 4.

    I understand they are trying to balance things but I'm not a fan of additional teams needed. An additional four teams is a significant chunk of time required to do battles. I imagine some folks will like this cause they get more entertainment value from the game but its a thumbs down for me.

    4 more if you are div 1 and it takes 2-5 mins to do a battle and you have 24 hours to do it

    Will the rewards of league promotion improve in each division?

    It tells you in the post that the rewords stay the same

    He mentioned about the end of event reward, not league promotion reward (which is the gear salvage you get) and is different in each division

    Hes going to update the post, they are staying the same.

    I should probably just wait, but people in Div 1 currently will now be in different divisions, they get the same promotion rewards still?

    I believe what he is saying is that all rewards will be the same as they are now for each division. Then you get rewards based on what division you are in, during the event.

    Div 1 and 2 will have 2 fleets like it is now.
  • The following will be added to both 3v3 and 5v5 versions of GAC:
    Div 1: Add 4 total squads
    Divs 2-4: Add 3 total squads
    Div 5: Add 2 total squads
    Div 6: Add 1 total squad

    Interesting change is that there used to be no reason to sit in an even numbered division, as the number of teams required was the same in the next higher odd numbered division - while the promotion rewards increased (slightly).

    When I was working my way up the divisions I managed to skip most of the even numbered ones, or only spend one month at the most. Doesn't look like that will be the same.

    Also, I'm don't remember div 5 number of teams, but won't someone who drops from 1 to 5 end up using less teams? Meaning seeing less variety on defence?

    Still not clear, sorry. I am moving from Div 1 to Div 3 at 6.3m. Does that mean my league promotion rewards will be the current Div 3 ones, which are less than the current Div 1 ones?

    So this is a nerf to GA for like 90% of players? Or do you mean the rewards for us are staying the same like they're moving them down?

    They are not changing from the current divison setup, just the players are moving around.

    So people currently in division 1 will get less gear for reaching aurodium and kyber if they are placed in lower divisions?

    Well, I hope there is still time to give some feedback, and hopefully they make it the same rewards for league promotion in div 3/2/1, and consider adding more stuff to it like signal data

    If I understand it well, this will be the amount of defenders needed:

    I'm sorry but again, still not clear.

    I get the rewards of the current division 3? Even though I'm in division 1 currently?

  • I just reread the squad changes- it feels too low in the middle. Is this right?

    at 3.6M, i'd be Div3 in old system and set 6 squad defenses.
    in new system, I'd be div7 and only set 4 defenses?

    Ok yikes, because at 6.3m I am now Div 3 and making that 1 fleet seems like a step backward.

    Completely with you on this.
    That really should be adjusted so that 2 fleets move down to the division starting at current div 2 GP.

    Also not a fan of promotion rewards decreasing because I’m bumped down a few divisions, seems like another oversight.

    those complaining about getting bumped out of Div 1, I suggest you pump up your GP and gear those toons to get above the 7.8M entry and see whats its really like, a lot of folks have had it easy at 5.5-6.5M in D1 for too long! "WHALE HARDER!"

    dwelling more on it, i'm fine with reduced rewards for league promotion

    It just encourages players to develop roster more

    That doesn't justify reducing rewards (if that's actually happening, still very unclear). If you want to argue that you should get increased rewards, I'll listen. Nothing should be taken away from anyone.
    Rewards are based on the league you reach. Your Division does not impact your rewards.

  • Does anyone have the current Rank Promotion (Carbonite->Bronzium, etc) rewards?

    Are you saying league promotion rewards (gear and such) are being changed to be independent of division?

    So Div 5 and 4 are being combined into the new Div 8 with an 800k GP spread from 2.3M to 3.1M. That's crazy. The difference in roster between those GPs is mad. Div 9 is even worse. The top end of the new Div 9 will be nearly 50 percent more than the GP of the bottom end!

    This seems to be a way to really make life a lot harder for newer players and free to play players.

    I remember that you aren't losing out a lot, so i think its not a big deal for dropping to div 3 from div 1

    You are getting like 5 stun gun salvage less per month for being in div 2 vs div 1 or so
