I think people got bored with the current format, it's the same cup after cup after cup. It's just like the Battle Royales, just one map..

I agree. I still signed up for this one since premium is cheap and $5 is a low investment for a potential return of an iPad. But I suspect most people that lost in the first or second rounds of the previous two aren't interested in shelling out another $5 to rack up two more losses. At the current rate of signups, it's going to take about 100 more days to fill, by which time CCV is scheduled to open.

Re: Conquer Cup IV

Postby reptile on Wed Oct 17, 2012 2:05 am

May i suggest a new idea of having a couple of different groups.. such as:

Conqueror's Gold Cup: Must be a Lieutenant or higher
Conqueror's Silver Cup: Must be a Sgt first class or below

This will for sure get more people in the cups overall.

For example i knew when the conqueror's cup started that i wouldn't be participating due to some of the lesser skilled players playing like noobs and this dramatically increases the luck factor and decreases any logical skill factor.

However i finally decided to join the 3rd one just to say i did it. Well just as i figured i was basically taken out of the games due to noobs going for bonuses when the cards were worth WAAAAAYYYYY more than the bonuses, i tried moving my troops out before they killed themselves and myself at the same time. Even tried talking to them in the chat before they did it... to no avail. Well this happened in both games.

turns out i won one of the free entries into the Conqueror's Cup IV and my first game finished with the EXACT same result. Before my second round i started talking in the chat and telling people i will move my men out of the way and they just destroyed my stacks... wtf!? I am sure the same thing will happen with my second game.

Waste of time waste of money. I figured it would be like that mixing all ranks together. I know for a fact i am not the only one that stays away just because there is no logic in playing in a game like that. Its almost like making a tournament of roll the dice and if you get the highest # you win. Would for sure attract a lot more players if there was at least one separation of the players.I for one have no interest unless it changes... but i do think the Conqueror's Cup is a great idea! Hope this changes in the future and am looking forward to participating if it ever does.

We are looking into ways to change the format of the Conquer Cup, and will take all suggestions under advisement. :D
