War Mode Faction Balance Hotfix

Recommended Posts

IFvkSMC.jpg
 

War Mode has been improved recently, with a hotfix that will force a more even ratio of both factions present in each shard. While it's unclear when "some time ago" was exactly, this should help with the faction imbalance players have been encountering. It won't, however, be an instant nor absolute fix for the issue, as it still takes some time for the shard to balance itself out. There will also be more improvements coming with 8.1, including better rewards for the underrepresented faction in the shard.

Blizzard LogoWar Mode Faction Balance (source)

Some time ago we made a hotfix to War Mode which enforces all War Mode shards that have both Alliance and Horde in them to have a stricter, more even ratio. We’ve been monitoring the results and so far we’ve noticed a significant improvement in “fair and balanced” shards. So much so that it’s safe to say that if you are Alliance, and you see Horde in the outdoor world in War Mode, you are a relatively even horde to alliance ratio shard. There are some rare exceptions, such as when a raid of 40 players enter a zone. It may take a bit for the “shard manager” to compensate and balance the shard.

We do have some plans in store in Tides of Vengeance (Patch 8.1) to entice the underrepresented faction with greater rewards to increase participation and create more active Horde/Allianced mixed War Mode shards. The intent of those rewards is not to give the underrepresented faction some “compensation” for being outnumbered in a War Mode shard (since that really can’t happen anymore).

We're also looking forward to what you all think about the Incursions in War Mode for 8.1, since it brings Horde and Alliance to the same location which should create some pretty fun skirmishes.

What annoys me is how often it's portrayed as "HORDE OUTNUMBERS!!!!onEONEONE!" when it differs greatly by region and time-zone. If I turn War-mode on as OCE Horde I'm begging for 50 alliance to come stab me. Getting the balance is good and important, no matter which faction is outnumbered.

I learned this lesson very quickly, i was level 30 in duskwood with warmode on and there was a level ?? ganking everyone for the fun of it and to prevent us from escaping, he killed the gryphon master and just kept killing everyone in war mode, this type of behavior in my opinion should be against the rules, i mean i can understand getting jumped by a couple of players around my level and thats fine, atleast i have a chance to fight back, but level 30 vs 120........sorry, but that is not fair and should be against the rules, with the punishment of perm-ban......i love challenge and competition, but when its unfair, even if its entirely in my favor is just not fun, since there is no chance for me to lose....you know?

A better solution would be to make players unattackable if their level is a lot lower than yours.

Not the same at all.  Just makes it so you face players of the same level/ilvl. Blizzard is supposedly all about things being fair and balanced,  not sure what's fair about a lvl 120 slaughtering lowbies.

Or you know turn off warmode because war is in the name and if you want balanced pvp go do a bg.

Would not make this better at all if you want things to change just make group or atleast keep WM on may be more challenging sometimes but if you love PVP it shouldn't be a problem. In an other hand if you are making this to get better reward and are not happy by getting killed on objectives then i can't help (talking for level 110-120 only ofc)

Guys, you do know that just saying 'turn off war mode' is not solving the problem, its like sticking your head in the sand and ignoring the problem, i am guessing you guys take part in this 120 vs 30 type of tihng? that is the only logical conclusion, unless you are telling me that you are really that dumb? Please tell me its the first option and not the second, cause i would really feel pity for ya. 🙂

How is turning off warmode not a solution? And if you say the XP buff, that's reward for the risk you are taking.

Blizzard will never punish PvP griefing because there is always a solution, and if that means getting a high level char from your own faction to help, then that's what Blizzard wants you to do. From the Support Site:

"All players can actively choose when they wish to engage in PvP combat by enabling or disabling War Mode in the talents interface while in Stormwind or Orgrimmar. If you do not wish to engage in PvP combat, do not activate War Mode.

War Mode allows open combat between players of opposing factions that have opted in to PvP (Player versus Player). Players that activate War Mode are encouraged to resolve cross-faction disputes on their own. The Game Master staff will not intervene in PvP disputes.

The following actions may be considered dishonorable but are considered legitimate PvP tactics and will not be addressed by our Game Master staff:

  • - Corpse camping
  • - Killing players well below your level"

So, in other words they endorse ganking and pretty much unfair combat?? oh, so i guess they might as well allow trainers to be used in all their games with no penalty, since they clearly don't give a **** about fair play.....unless they only care about fair play when it suits their benefit.

Also, when it comes to the XP buff, sorry, but having the war mode on from stormwind to duskwood (taxi ride) and for 5 minutes after that getting killed by a player that is clearly level 120 over 30 times......sorry, but for it to be worth it, the xp bonus needs to be 100% xp bonus and 100% rep bonus.

Depends on luck, if you encounter shard that is new and still being filled, you will see huge disproportions in numbers, although Horde is more likely to have more players in there. Top communities, along with those who want to be in those guilds or just want bigger recruitment pools, have switched to Horde, if they used to be Alliance previously, so War Mode often ends as "default passive bonus" for Horde, since there is no risk involved as they won't see many members from other faction. Right now, on EU Alliance is only about 43%, and this number will continue to drop if nothing is done, as "snowball effect" continues, when more people switch to simply be on the more populated side and with larger playerbase for recruitment. The only way to stop it, is probably to introduce some crossfaction play, however this likely won't fix difference in numbers, only slow the process down.

Isn't there a cap to the % of xp bonus or did that change? like 50% or something which is easily done via heirlooms. so warmode wouldn't really benefit the lowbies that complain about being wrecked by 120 rogues. If heirlooms cant be purchased by lowbies the reduction to exp thats coming will help entice lowbies to leave it off. Now warmode may be harsh for the 110-119 range due to the amount of 120's running around, but I had a blast with friends leveling from 110 to 120 on main and alts and continue to run warmode as 120 while rarely running into issue, even by myself. If i do run into a group that bends me over, im not going to complain. The problem I have with Warmode is it feels no different at 120 whether its on or off. I haven't been ganked or gangraped once at 120 with WM on.

So can someone clarify something for me, what exactly is the complaint about when a max level is killing NPCs and players in low level areas?

 

I remember playing on Darkspear back in Wrath for the better part of six months and as it was a PvP only server this stuff happened all the time in both the Horde and Alliance areas. Was always a pain when quest givers and flight masters got killed while you were out doing quests. I then got tired of dealing with that as I'd only joined that server when some friends wanted me to join their group and went and joined a different PvE server where if I wanted to PvP then I would intentionally do so but wasn't an always on thing.

 

Now that this is just literally a toggle option in the main cities and not a server choice, not even for a 100% xp and rep buff do I intend to have that on for either faction unless I'm willing to deal with stuff that has been happening probably since launch.

Please stop whining. 

When on a PvP server, PvP happens and ganking happens. End of story.

When turning WM on, PvP happens, and ganking happens. End of story.

If you get ganked, call on world defense, or general for help or in your guild. That is what we are doing. Very often we get a: "There is a group of xx alliances ganking us here, please help", and then we come and help and get honor and that's it.

If you can't take it, turn WM off and go in BG to catch up with the missing XP and do some PvP. You can get almost one level for each bg won, and you get a chance to get gear.

But whatever you do, stop whining and insulting other. That's not a very bright thing to do.

Regards,

Lehiya

Yeah - great post.

War Mode isn't about fair play. It's about faction warfare. That isn't always fair. This is not a "problem" for Blizzard to fix. Complaining and saying "if you're Alliance, turn it off and NEVER turn it back on" is EXACTLY why the player made problem exists. I encounter more Alliance players that turn on War Mode solely for the 10% buff and then complain in /1 "Horde can't fight 1v1 cuz they bad lul".

No. There seems to be a greater number of Horde that group up to go have fun in War Mode by participating in world pvp - faction warfare.

When they Alliance players actually group up, in this multiplayer game, and fight back, as you should if you have turned War Mode on, big fun battles commence.

If you don't want to PvP. Turn it off. If you want to PvP and constantly complain that the Horde gang up and grief - actually talk to your fellow players and group up.

Thanks.

Its quite simple remove the +10% bonus in warmode...and i dont think there is a reason to rage....

I mean why after many years playing in a pve server you are required to go pvp now for the bonus xp....

Now for players that played bofero in pvp servers nothing changes.... You are used to get ganked in lvling... ok:)

You are correct and this is sad that it is dropping like that i'm from EU and particularly HYJAL (32% alliance) but i just never toggled off my WarMode at all from level 110 and never get involved in such disproportions that it would make me desactivate it or even leave the game and wait them to leave. Whenever i see a location with way more horde i either attack them anyway cause as this is not a huge threat for us more "low skills" player are there and easy to kill or i create group using LFG tools and start a "war" because this is what i like in the game now. I everyday see people whining on the /1 channel but this is not my experience of the game. I would like to see something done to bring back more balance in faction count but i can't think of a way to correct for the moment unfortunately as for example a majority of French streamer are horde and new player wants to follow them so the only way would be to unite and create big event like TromaFR did.
Anyway i'm glad you answer me, have a nice day.

This is not the solution. Ganking isn't an issue, as much as disproportions in numbers. Less players in total, means less potential players interested in forming a group, more and more people turning it off, as there are less players on that side. This results in more and more transferring to dominant faction.

If nothing is done, like the mentioned crossfaction play, at one point, as a Horde, you simply aren't going to see any players to fight against or some rare instances. And it's going to affect more things, enjoy your 2 hour bg queues, I guess... As most expansions favored racials on the Horde, top pve and pvp communities and their followers have moved over, even if racials don't mean as much now, these people are going to stay now, as there is no point coming back for smaller playerbase and recruitment options. Racials should have been made into completely cosmetic or out of combat things years ago, it's late to do this now, so some other solutions are needed as well.

      We're revisiting Pandaria in Patch 8.3, so Blizzard added a new soft pink recolor of the good old serpent mount to the game. The source of the mount is a placeholder and unknown for now.
      Chalcedony Cloud Serpent
      The gentle Chalcedony Cloud Serpents love to play in the petals that fall in the Arboretum, coloring their scales a soft pink hue.

      Hallow's End has arrived on live servers and there are no notable updates this year. The Headless Horseman's loot has been adjusted to item level 395. Check out our Hallow's End guide for more information about the event.
      Blizzard (Source)
      It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!

      All together now! —the Headless Horseman is back to set fire to Razor Hill and Goldshire once more. You’ll need to lend a hand on the bucket brigade to put them out and face the infamous rider.
      It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
      Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 20-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
      This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added 2018 toy:

      Ny'alotha, the Waking City comes with a raid skip and once you defeat the first boss, you'll receive the raid skip quest and must collect 4 Corrupted Flesh Samples from the raid's penultimate boss to gain access to the skip.
      Players on 8.3 PTR discovered that once you defeat Wrathion, you will receive the "Ny'alotha: MOTHER's Guidance" quest, which unlocks a raid skip, granted that you've defeated the raid's eleventh boss, Carapace of N'Zoth, four times. After that, you should be able to skip straight to Carapace of N'Zoth without having to deal with the rest of the bosses.
      Ny'alotha is a twelve-boss raid and it's a good thing that they decided to include a raid skip.

      Cross-Realm Mythic Eternal Palace opens next week and Blizzard just announced nerfs for Lady Ashvane and Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty to go live with it on October 22.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello!
      Earlier this week, the Mythic Hall of Fame for Azshara’s Eternal Palace reached its capacity, and guilds around the world have until the next weekly reset in each region to earn their Feat of Strength. At that time, Mythic difficulty will become available to cross-realm groups.
      Along with the closure of the Hall of Fame and the Achievement, we intend to make the following tuning changes during weekly maintenance in each region:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Lady Ashvane Lady Ashvane’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty. Waterlogged periodic damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Rippling Wave damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Queen Azshara The "Stand Together!" and "Stay!" decree combination is no longer possible in Heroic difficulty. Overzealous Hulk and Tidemistress health reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Draining Azshara’s Ancient Ward now reduces its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Empowering a Ward of Power now increases its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Healer-specialization characters are now less likely to be targeted with decree combinations that include “March!” in all difficulties. Short Circuit now drains 10% less energy from the affected Ward in all difficulties. Essence of Azeroth now has an increased duration if there are fewer than 20 players in the raid in Normal and Heroic difficulties, and lasts 30 seconds (was 25) in Mythic difficulty. As always, we’ll let you know here if we decide to make any further changes.
      Thank you very much!
