I'm fine with that being the only balance change. Look at the top 10, it seems pretty balanced.

Edit: One question though. Why can Wolfen go into Defensive Stance and still attack?

this is normal and has been like this since i played. Defensive stance makes you lose one attack meaning that a wolven will simply have 1.

i guess the "Real" balance patch will hit the servers another time ;-)

becouse deffense is only -1 Attack not att = 0

Look at the top 10, it seems pretty balanced.

i'll check it latter - but current ranking is mostly about number of games played...

yesterday i meet player from top 3 after a week offline and won it without a problem.

Additionaly even perfect ranking will show only balance between best possible companies - not useless units ;P

but lets hope that new maps are interesting.

Thanks for the info on Defensive Stance - that makes sense.

I do agree that the top 10 highly favors those who play the most. But what are the other options? Win ratio? Win one game and you have 100%.

I play an online TCG that has a lot of people playing it, that does a good job with rank. It still favors playing a lot, but losing really makes you loose points (loosing twice in a row can negate the last five or six wins), so it's not all about playing the most games... but to get a good score, you need to play a lot of games.

Edit: Is the game back up yet?

The map changes sound interesting, can't wait to try them out! The increased level rewards sound great as well, but will they be retroactive? It'd certainly be nice if they were for those with already high level accounts...

I do agree that the top 10 highly favors those who play the most. But what are the other options? Win ratio? Win one game and you have 100%.

When i play ranked Confrontation (3-3,5 edition) tournaments in my country - we have point system highly based about current rank of the player. For example when i managed to get into top 3 - each draw with me even for mid rank player was counted as his victory (in the rank only - not tournement, so i won or was 2'nd in some tournaments that lowered my place in the rank)... and if i ever lost Vs player below top10 i lost many points more than i could get for win even with equal player. So simply to keep first place player was forced to win almost any game - especialy with lower ranks - and only games that he could draw or lost was games with another top 10 - top 3 players ;)

I can't link exact tables because they was deleted few months ago - but going for top was hell hard and most certan option to stay in top 3 was playing as few matches as it was possible ;)
While for lower rank players (especialy below half of the rank) almost every match was optimistic ;)
