Or they change this and start to give the winner crate for both sides, or the first squad to reach 45 is the winner. It doesn't matter if your squad reaches 45 in 30min or 23h. Reach 45, and war finishes.
As was pointed out by various persons on various threads, the first to reach 45 wins is not a good idea to say the least.
Squads who have enough players on at the start (and preferably are in about the same timezone) will win 99% of the wars.
E.g. my squad's second last war, started for me at 3AM so I was asleep. They reached 45 within half an hour I was told. Eventually by using quick attacks taking Tako and Tat and launching 2-3 attacks each time -they had far superior firepower and retook OPs within minutes if they were slow- we came back to a 45-45 draw in the last hour. It was one of our best wars in a long time. That would be entirely impossible with the reach-45-first rule.
