So here's how the faction war works right now:

The factions are fighting trough deploying war assets over a map divided into territories.
Each time you play a match, you'll be able to deploy a certain number of war assets depending on how good you did in this very match.
The faction with the most war assets on a territory after 6 hours of fighting will then conquer this territory as the map is updated.
After 2 weeks of 6 hours updates (last one included), the faction with the most conquered territories win the round and the map is reset.
Finally, after 5 rounds, the faction that won most of them will be considered as winners of the season, and each player that committed to this faction will gain special rewards.

Here's the problem:

I believe that the more a faction manage to conquer initial territories of another faction, the more that last one is getting a war assets boost to help her getting back on her feet!
This is just stupid, and we've been able to witness the stupidity of it during this open beta.
Indeed, during the beta, as soon as a faction won territories, she wasn't able to keep them because of that unbalanced boost other factions got. So basically during all beta, Samourais won territories, got pushed back, won again, got pushed back, won again, etc etc ...

And the thing is: this is basically why knights won this war of the factions. They got the most rekt during those 3 days, just like during closed beta, so much so that, in the end, they managed to perform a ridiculous comeback and surpass everyone. --'

Solutions :

1) Create an algorithm to compensate the player base difference between each factions so that you don't need to use this crappy system instead.

2) Instead of considering the faction with the most territories at the end as the winner one, calculate the average number of territories won by factions at the end of a round to decide who really dominated the war.

Here's the thing @o0 DaGnOmE 0o, The war assets didn't win the FW like was stated here: https://imgur.com/AN9Ugfy The people with the most territories at the end did, that's why everyone is pissed off.

Because if you don't deploy it and your assets are evenly spread, while the other factions all put their points into the zones they want, the team who got more assets but evenly distributed them could still get less territory. That's why the most war assets does not make sense.
