OSM App battle system: let's talk



  • Okay, so I'm an old OSM player, I'm here since 2013 even though I left for a long time I recently came back because my friends that are still playing organized a tournament and wanted me to take part.
    Now, I have also been invited to their crew and we are doing a battle. I have to admit I like how it works: it is simple since the system automatically calculates points, you don't have to challenge your own team mates (which to be fair I find it to be stupid and boring) and also it goes on for just few days. On the other hand there are things that I don't like and I want to bring them up, hoping that the community agrees with me and that we can get gamebasics to change something. First of all I don't like that groups cannot decide which options to enable or disable; for example we hate training camps, we don't use them and we don't want people to use them against us, why are we forced to play with training camps enabled? Also disabling timers and buying players with coins would be great.
    Another problem is the selected league: why can't groups decide which league to play? It is boring to play the same league over and over. Also it would be GREAT if crews could also challenge each other instead of only having the system choose the enemy. And last but not least: make the crew battle thing available on OSM web version, I mean you can play the games on the web version but you can't join crew battles if you don't use the application, it's kinda frustrating and makes no sense to me.
    Now I'd like to know the community thoughts on this, personally I believe that if this system would get tweaked a bit with the changes I said previously (and maybe more if the community bring anything up) it could become much better than the "traditional" battle system. I'd like to hear from everyone veterans and new players, what are your thoughts about this?



  • so no one gives a **** about this?

    That is a pretty decent list of possible improvements for crew battles:

    • Enable/disable training camps
    • Enable/disable buying with coins
    • Enable/disable timers
    • Picking a league
    • Challenge others directly by choice (not via system)
    • Crew battles available on web-based game (not solely by application)

    Personally, I like your ideas and it make sense. If anyone can respond with valid counterarguments that would be great.



  • I agree with everything said on this thread, the new battle system has grown on me. Would be loads better if you had options for moderator tools like a normal league. Also have a few choices who to play against in a battle and pick your teams goals between your crew instead of it being random



  • I could not agree more than that, you certainly did a good job with the new battle system, so for **** fake why not make it even better? I'm pretty sure that players will love these new updates.



  • First off i agree with you. Our crew ranks in top 50 and in every battle we are being mauled by other crews playing training camps almost every round.

    Personally I am not a huge favourite for these training camps and as you have rightly pointed it out, since our opponents use it our crew is forced to reply with a camp.

    As per the battlepedia rules training camps are particularly not enabled which is most commonly used for crew battles. But the thing i fail to understand is, why isnt it brought in here too?

    These training camps in particular are sucking the life out of the game and would love to see some improvement in this regard



  • @nike-salkoviwtz not just training camps, the Boss coins compensation and timers are just as bad! Just an option to turn them 3 off would be very good.



  • @jeffro-davies i would absolutely love that. It would be a fair game and best way to determine the crew with the best managers in the world

    By the way,... How do we pass on our suggestions to the mods or developers? Or do they read our forum conversations here?

    good enough, hope this gets forwarded to GB, it would greatly improve the crew wars experience
