What will come after MTT event?
Many MTT flags are distributed now. It's over power units, which clear any bases if they are high level. We have to prepare what's coming.
My two cents.
1. No More defense wins
It's typical strategy to fight Dev Bases on home planets (Reb: Sand, Imp: Green and Hoth), and win defenses on opponent's home planets. It will end. If we camp on opponent's home planets (especially while you sleep), MTTs flatten you. After we wake up, we’ll see our base under protection and get zero or only a few defense wins. SWC is PvP game. Defense wins must be exceptional. I welcome this move.
2. Base design change
When we design our base, we have to consider Jump/Jets, Kessen and Kubaz/Ithorian. Burst turrets are majority against Jump/Jets. Experienced player's bases are now anti Kubaz/Ithorian bases. It doesn't have any holes for them to be deployed and destroy shields easily. Barracks and Deka/Deko are placed to prevent easy Kessen shot to SC. We will be forced to change Burst to Rocket. Rocket is effective for vehicles in power and target. If vehicles are in shot range of rockets, they prefer to shoot vehicles even though there are tons of Dowtuins.
One more resort is walls. Now, walls are used to spread bases to prevent timely unit deployment because Jets/Jumps can fly over. We have to consider bringing back buffed walls against MTTs. Multi-layer walls. It may save you to give 3stars, and end in 2 stars if you have luck.
3. More players leave SWC: Impact on War
When buffed Jets/Jumps were introduced, they were criticized as "No Brain Attack", but it's not true. Very limited number of players can get 3 stars by Jets/Jumps. Typical players can get 2 stars by Jet/Jump spam with SC and full air (unless they are medal dumpers). However, high level (Lv10 or 11) MTTs give you real "No brain Attack Win". Guaranteed 3 stars without skill (at least 2 stars). It will cause high skill or experienced players to leave SWC, because they don't feel fun anymore.
For good or bad, many high skill players (especially Reb who faces GR Snipers/Rodians) don't play PvP anymore. They live in the last SWC paradise,"No OP War" (No Outpost War), and attack Dev bases and earn defense wins when they find flags they are interested in. However, attacking dev bases is SUPER BORING. I feel wasting my life to attack them, because it's not challenge. It's same as MTT attack. Guaranteed 3 stars are not fun.
In addition, normal Outpost WAR will die. If you have lv5 or higher MTTs, you can clear bases on War without outposts. It causes more and more 45:45 results. If your squads have leadership to move to No Op war restricting MTT/ITT (Wookie Wagon), it may extend your SWC life, but it's very tough. It requires LINE or out of game chat tools to prove deployed units, and majority players think it's too much. Frequent 45:45 results tire players and make them leave. It may impact the number of player more heavily.
4. Who wins? Medal Dumpers
We will see more medal dumpers, who expect easy matching. Now, we find medal dumpers even at top 100 squads. If you dump medals, your chance to be attacked by high level MTTs becomes less. Medal dumpers continue to get easy win in attack and defense.
We need strategical weapon against over powered defense with buffed Burst turrets and GR to make PvP back, but Zynga chose wrong approach, over powered MTT. MTT may be worse than Armory or GR.
I suggest one more things though less likely. There is a planet which MTT cannot flatten bases easily, Hoth. Cold MHC or Cold HFD is stronger than MTT. Before MTT era, Hoth is a planet which is relatively fair in attack and defense due to meat shield TaunTaun/INT4 and long shot range Cold MHC/HFD. If we may develop a base design, we still have chance of defense win for MTT, but not sure. Moreover, only a few people are motivated to attack human bases on Hoth. (Remind: Reb can win Imp on Hoth, but Imp has strongadvantage in defense due to Cold GR MHC. Reb misses GR HFD).
Adjust or die. Another mess, MTT.
