    Revenge Rule Updates

    Hello Commanders,

    Some Background:

    On October 3rd, 2017 we made some significant PvP attack level restriction updates. Following this update, we started to see a lot of feedback from higher level players who were effectively losing battalions on the regional maps to higher numbers of lower level players. This was frustrating for the higher levels given that the updated PvP attack level restrictions no longer allowed the higher levels any opportunity for revenge. Furthermore, seeking revenge against the lower leveled player's battalions was not an effective tactic due to the much higher volume of lower leveled players on the maps. After careful monitoring of feedback and game data, we decided to address this on October 23rd, 2017 by implementing a new "Revenge" Rule that would activate following battalion vs. battalion battles.

    The purpose of the update on October 23rd, 2017 was to provide fair and equal PvP opportunity on the maps for all levels, by allowing higher levels to properly seek revenge when a lower level player chooses to "play with the big dogs" when they attack a battalion that's above their normal attack level range.

    New Developments:

    While the above updates seem to have successfully done their job in re-balancing the PvP atmosphere, it has created a new tactic wherein low level players are now able to work together with a higher level friend to stage a battalion vs. battalion revenge situation for the purpose of getting the higher level friend to attack the lower level's base to grant the lower level free damage protection on demand. Allowing this tactic was unintentional on our end as we generally frown upon any form of "friendly bubbling" based attacks.

    In light of this, starting on November 30th, 2017, damage protection will no longer trigger for any attack that uses the revenge allowance AND is outside the normal attackable level range. Please note that damage protection will not change for revenge attacks that are made against a player that is within your normal attack level range.

    We understand this change might prove frustrating for some lower level players who attack higher level battalions and end up getting their bases destroyed out of revenge with no damage protection left in the wake to keep the destroyed base safe, but we feel that this would be an appropriate price for a lower level to pay if he or she chooses to "play with the big dogs".

    Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding, and please feel free to discuss your thoughts and concerns in the comments below!

    GET RID OF THE NEW SHARK TANK LEVELS!!!!!!!!!!!! this is meaningless to the "big dogs" that you claim to be accomodating. What do i care is some piss ant alt gets a bubble? I'm still only able to attack 10% of the bases on any given map so this doesn't even come close to going far enough! GET RID OF THE NEW SHARK TANK LEVELS!!!!!!!!!!!

    Keep the shark tank levels! If y'all don't like the shark tank levels, go to non-map and fight there.
