Initiate Time After Squad War - What is it?

Post#1 » Mon Apr 03, 2017 6:03 am

After a squad war ended, I checked in the war room and saw something called Initiate Time counting down at the top of the screen. Never noticed it before and Google was no help. Anyone know what that is?

Yes, It's how long before your squad can enter matchmaking for your next war

You are unable to start a new squad war until 24 hours has passed since your previous squad war has ended. In other words, it is the time you have left until you can start (initiate) a new squad war.

Which used to be the case during the first months of wars. Soon that time-out was deleted. Now you can start another war within minutes after completing a war. However, the initiate time countdown still exists.

Just confirmed you can start a new war despite the timer. So either the timer still being there is a bug, or being able to start a war before it expires is a bug. Maybe they can't remove the timer for the same reason they can't give us replays. :)

just don't go to the mouse with this savvy finding, okay?
wars are the most fun part of the game now and would be very sad to have this fixed.

possibly... anyway, it is a glitch/omission/bug that for once does no harm :P

The timer is showing how long you can still visit the war room and see the results. After the 24 hours, those disappear. That is all I can figure it is for.

The second a war ends, you can initiate another.

Midge is right. I only wait a few hours after one War ends before I start the next one. I've done this for months. That's how we manage 3 Wars a week.

For me and my squad, the results have sometimes disappeared after an hour or even less -- one time, recently, they disappeared after just a few minutes, not just for me but for my squadmates as well.
