    TWD Update

    We're currently in the process of reworking some aspects of TWD, as well as shaping other league plans.

    In the works are a TWD Cup with staff-organized matchmaking and squad match scheduling. More info soon.

    There are some quality of life changes we are now live-testing as well:

    • No more waiting period between leaving one squad and joining a new one (don't abuse or it'll just get put back, obviously)
    • Assistants can now accept squad applicants, but not deny them
    • New squad members can PM TWDBot with !applytomysquad to apply to their squad, removing the need to leave the game and log in to the TWD site
    • Caps/assistants can PM !accept <name> to TWDBot to accept applicants


    The hope is that this should make recruiting players a much simpler process, allowing squads to grow more easily.

    We will also be modifying how squad ratings work. Consider the current TWD off-season to be a test: ratings are subject to change at any time. (Sorry, have to do it this way, as there's no testing department.) Details to be released soon, but the basic idea is:
    • Every match played will increase your rating, regardless of win or loss.
    • Losses will give a flat increase, probably 5 points.
    • Wins will give a flat increase of probably 10 points, with an additional bonus based on the difference between the ratings of the two squads, similar to how wins currently work.
    • Forfeits will be zero-sum in terms of points added to the system overall (amount won will be equal to amount lost), to prevent abuse. Forfeiting a match will be the only way you can lose points.

    Paradise> NO NAMES. NOT A SINGLE NAME.....but 3/6 of the players on Force are of a certain descent. I will not go any further.

    Could we start by doing a LADDER RESET RIGHT NOW ....

    It has been like over 2 years which is depressing and I'm tired of Paladen being so low.

    It will start to incentivize squads and players NOW into making squads and beginning a competitive environment for the upcoming TWD CUP (Which we should call TWL Cup)

    Thanks .. please reset ladders!!! Looking forward to the new league/cup. I am here to help with ideas too if needed.

    Actively making changes, so it wouldn't be so helpful to reset at the moment, when things could easily go wrong, and might lead to some confusion about the intention of it. Reset'll come soon enough, don't worry!

    Been a fair bit of activity, especially compared to recent times.

    Think a large part of this is to lack of leagues and increase of TWD activity. As much as I like TSL/TWDT, they seem to have negatively impacted the zones activity, with high peak times during them being 1-3 days where now with just TWD, it has high peak times just about every day. I've noticed a huge increase of daily activity as well as lot's of vets coming out of the wood work because of it, it's been awesome the last couple weeks (basically since TSL ended lol). I know there has been talk of bringing leagues back into play, personally I'd like to see focus on TWD and put leagues on a back burner for a while since I think they hurt the population rather than bolster it. Just my observation and opinion. Cheers!

    I dont know the real state of the game atm so I can only speak for myself. (While I assume this is the case for other top players as well) There is no incentive for me to log in as long as there are no leagues announced/on-going. The probability of me returning is decreasing more and more the longer this offseason continues. At some point I will probably quit following the forums as the interest has simply died out.
