For my suggestion, let’s consider that the server is at max power, with that i bring some conditions:
Server full, 2000 people online;
War in Windsward between Marauders and Syndicates;
Make the territory war into instances.
After that, create the lobby for the war where the people can sign up. So, lets say that:
50% of Syndicate sign in ->350 players;
60% of Marauders sign in → 300 players;
With this being said we have 6 battles (6*50, because there’s only 300 marauders, it cap the number of battles) at the same time happening for the same porpose.
The attackers and defenders sign a captain to each battle so he can design the teams and organize the people. The battles are all at same time, but in different instances, so everyone has a chance to play it, to fight for it and contribute.
The influence percent to win the war depends of the number of battles that we have, which means:
|1 battle(100players)||2-4 battle(+ 200-400)||5+ battles(+500-2000)|
|100%-0%||40%-60%||30% - 70%|
First percent is for the company attacking and defending. The second is for the other battles. The major battle must have higher percent, then the others.
The company that is attacking/defending has 30% of influence in winning the war.
The other battles total influence is 70% of War, which is divided by the number of each one. Which gives 14% (70/50=14) to each battle.
We just need to get more then 50%(sum of all battles percent) to winning the war, which means, for this example:
the faction that wins the war, must have at least 1 win in the major battle(company attacking) and 2 more wins of 5 in the other battles.
the faction that wins the war, could loose the major battle but must have at least 4 wins of 5 in the lower battles.
The biggest company’s must work a lot to improve the own faction gear and tatics. This would involve everyone in the server that wants to participate in wars. It will improve the enviroment of the game aswell. This will bring more strategy to each war.
It will destroy “the big companies” or it could make a company with 500 players, imagine that! Couldn’t wait for lot of drama!
Can you imagine this happening? Cons? Pros?
