[size=48]CALL OF DUTY® CLAN WARS: SEASON 2 CHANGES
[size=48]Posted by [size=48]ClanWarsNews[/size] in [size=48]Call of Duty Clan Wars[/size] on Apr 17, 2015 3:03:22 PM[/size][/size]



[size=49]Following an incredible start, we’re happy to announce Clan Wars Season 2 for Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare! Thanks to the community’s active participation and constructive feedback, we’re making significant changes to Clan Wars for the second season, affecting both the Bronze through Platinum and Diamond divisions.
 
Bronze – Platinum Division Updates
 
Bonus In-Game Multiplayer XP
 
To better reward Clans for participating in Clan Wars, we’re changing the way that XP bonuses work. Now, when you capture a node that grants an in-game XP bonus for a specific game mode, you get to keep those XP bonuses for at least 72 hours after that Clan War concludes. This will help your whole Clan push up the Prestige ranks!
 
Bracket
 
We’ve revamped the bracketing system to be clearer, simpler, and to provide more flexibility in matchmaking. The current brackets are being reduced to the following 5 options:
 
Lightweight: 3-4 members
Bantamweight: 5-10 members
Middleweight: 11-19 members
Heavyweight: 20-45 members
Juggernaut: 46-70 members
 
As always, you can either select your bracket within the Call of Duty app, or, if you don’t select a bracket, we will automatically select the proper one based on your unbenched Clan size.
 
Matchmaking for a clan will only ever occur within their bracket. Matchmaking within brackets will attempt to match clans of approximately the same population size where feasible.
 
Diamond Division Updates
 
Bonus In-Game Multiplayer XP
 
As in Bronze-Platinum, the bonus XP modifier that your Clan earns for capturing a node will persist for that game mode for at least 72 hours after the end of the war.
 
Matchmaking
 
In Diamond Division, we will be using a new matching system to ensure that each war contains a broad competitive spectrum of Diamond Division Clans. Our intent is to replicate more of the flavor and energy of Battle Royale wars, and make each war meaningful.
 
We intend on matchmaking Clans with very similar sizes inside each bracket, and also create matches containing a spectrum of Clan achievement; for example, two Clans from the top 3rd of a group, two Clans from the middle 3rd, and two Clans from the bottom 3rd. This will mix established, accomplished Clans with younger, hungrier Clans that want to headhunt the leaders, claim the prizes and make a name for themselves.
 
We will also more aggressively cut inactive Clans from matchmaking. Clans that do not play Diamond Division will have to re-qualify to enter again.
 
Diamond Points
 
It’s our intention for the highest placed Diamond Division Clans to reach the top of the leaderboard by seeking out the toughest competitors and defeating them in battle.
 
Starting with Season 2, Diamond Division leaderboard point calculation will be changing significantly. In Season 1, the Diamond Point incentives were frequently aligned so that Clans were rewarded for being matchmade into inactive wars against poor competition.
 
In Season 2, we are inverting those incentives. We will be granting points to Clans based heavily on the strength of their competition, including the activity level of their war, and success gained against higher ranked Clans. We will discuss details of these systems at a later time.
 
Brackets
 
We are simplifying and consolidating the brackets in order to reduce confusion and improve our matchmaking flexibility.
 
As in the Bronze-Platinum divisions, we are simplifying the brackets down to five:
 
Lightweight: 3-4 members
Bantamweight: 5-10 members
Middleweight: 11-19 members
Heavyweight: 20-45 members
Juggernaut: 46-70 members
 
Clans will be matchmade only inside their own bracket. We will attempt to matchmake clans so that each war contains Clans of the same size.
 
We are additionally separating out the leaderboards into these bracket sizes, and removing the ‘all’ leaderboard.
 
Clans may only earn Diamond Points towards a particular bracket. Clans that change brackets will start their new bracket with zero Diamond Points. Our intent is that a Clan will choose their bracket for the season, and stick with it, so that its progress is comparable with its peers for the entire duration of the season. This should improve the integrity of the final rankings.
 
Thanks for a great first season, and we look forward to Season 2!

Good changes IMO, but it would suck now to get stuck in a war with only 1 or 0 other active clans.

So you can change bucket (bracket) size but it zeros out your DD Points. :-/ this ought to be interesting.

So with the new changes we either got to get super strict on the roster req. And play with a smaller size? Or try and cordanate players in shifts And except the challenge of getting enough online at a time
