Do you think that Clan League 5 should allow for nuclear spoils?

I've never really understood the exclusion of nuke spoils from clan tourneys. I dont see that they should be treated any different to the other spoils settings. Personally i'm all for it. :D

My personal opinion is that the goal of clan competitions is to reflect who has the best strategy of the clans involved. While I'm not arguing that there's a strategy involved to playing with nuke cards, there's also a pretty big element of chance that it introduces, which is the main negative of nuke cards to me. I acknowledge that there's an element of chance in every game, but nukes take it to a higher degree, without adding that much to the the realm of required strategy.

I've played and won lots of nuke tournies, nearly have my gold nuke medal, but I don't think it's a good setting for clan events.

Should Clan League 5 Allow Spoils?


Yes.

You might want to add "Nuclear" to that poll question I'm guessing.

how does nuclear involve more luck than escalating or flat rate please?? it's just a total different way of thinking and placing troops. get a double pair in a teamgame escalating at the worse moment and tell me if nuke spoils are too luck related.. it's just a game type where you count less on bonuses. Anyway, if both clans agree on it I really don't see how it could be still banned.
side note: I'd put a rule though. If anyone misses a spoil on purpose by letting the timer run they lose the game.

It adds more luck because if you get a card of yourself or an opponent, you can wipe out massive amounts of armies. If it's escalating and you get your own tert, you get +2. That's a pretty big discrepancy.

I'm with Swifte's thought. I have nuclear gold, playing it is not an issue for me, but I think it does introduce a little more luck than other spoils.

having a huge stack on an unsafe territory is plain stupid. I guess clan players know better than that. If someone gets nuked the hell out it's just that they don't know how to play team nukes.

The luck element is there to an extent but you can as Betiko said, not take silly risks. It's an extra element of strategy to consider when selecting games. Personally I don't think it will be used a great deal, certainly not by the top clans but then nor is flat rate.
