As we mentioned in this post it is our intention to provide a more deliberate experience in Platoon Missions inside of Territory Battles by both curating those Platoons and then providing the list of those curated Platoons in the forums. We will provide updates before we make changes to this list in the future, so you can plan your Platoons accordingly.
Platoon requirements by Vertical Slice and Territory: updated: 11/22
it is confusing for sure as I don't recall the term "Vertical Slices" ever being used before.
Apologies for the confusion. We have used 'vertical strip' in the past when describing a vertical unbroken line of Territories. Consider Vertical Strip and Vertical Slice the same: Original Reference
What would make a handier presentation?
Seems like having count of duplicates (both within a platoon, and across platoons in a territory) would be helpful. (Tell number of each character needed.)
Any other ideas how to boil this down to make accessible?
I understand the implied “it’s all the same as LS:TB.” I ask because I recall at no point that is has been unequivocally stated to be so.
Not announced yet. Likely we'll see it before the next one comes in December.
Absolutely noted. Good feedback.
Plus one on this request!
They stopped that because of you don't complete an area it's reactived next day.
And done! Please see our post from our handy dandy mods <<HERE>>
Yes please stop with this vertical slices stuff. "Phase" is perfect.
made my day. cheers!
Unfortunately Phase is a temporal (time based) measurement. Usually 24 hours. While we're trying to describe map oriented objects and areas on the map. Hence, sometimes there being confusion.
Consider, in Phase 1, a guild only finishes the top Territory. Then Phase 2, the guild would have a territory in column 1 and column 2 but still be in Phase 2.
We'll get it straitened out tho.
Then I suggest "sector" to refer to the "vertical slices," which is a bit cumbersome. So the TB is divided into 6 sectors, each sector contains 2-3 territories.
You are welcome GC
I'm with you @warmonkey. Phase doesn't have to have a temporal connotation. It's a step in a progression. Also, it can just mean "aspect" or "part." Here, should not phases progress with completion, not time? So if a Territory in phase 1 is unfinished, they're still in phase 1 when Phase 2 opens. They can progress to phase 2 once the territory in question has completed the phase 1 step.
But whatever. Star Wars: Galaxy of Vertical Slices it is, if CG insists.
