I’m kind of astonished about the kind of fairplay that SK members have invented. I cannot recall for how many month I’ve read the whining posts from members of the current SK alliance about how unfair trophy stripping and pushing - second accounts and all kinds of tricks with game mechanics are.
Now they have invented this wonderful rolling concept of getting pushed and pushing others which easily guarantees them the spots 1-20 without real competition.
I just wonder how fair this is and who should now starting to cry. I see a couple of effects:
Inflation: Every day there is new record mark set in trophy count within the first 10 Slots. Reason is because they are majorly pulled from below and only in minor situations distributed on the top.
Frustration: I think most of top 50 players have given up to even try to fight for one of the top spots as immediatly when you get there you are almost the only target that gives them meaningful reward (loot & maintaining their position)
Game Mechanic: the elite boosts seem to be more defence powered, it became increasingly difficult to attack a base of a top alliance member, so better don’t do it and give them their pleasure to farm you.
Financing: Once this concept has setlled down Flare will kind of loose their best spenders as they are all formed in the same alliance and don’t need to battle or compete against each other. Lower ranks climbing will fall into the depression and not push a lot. Thats just a guess, Flare knows much better what income effect their mechanics have.
No closing comment. I just wanted to initiate a discussion here as I see other alliances members are no longer pushing for the lead anymore. And I’m sure SK members will have very good arguments to tell me in this post that i’m completly wrong with my assumptions
Ah and not to forget, i want to congratulate to SK, technically this is just a perfect concept. I have to pay compliment for the idea and the well done implementation. At no doubt many (not all!!) of the best players have grouped up.
