Just because you had more assets, doesn't mean you won more territory.

This crude picture shows Vikings have 1% more assets than Knights, but knights still win more territory.

A star means they won that territory.

The faction territory map is more strategic than you think, and randomly placing assets could cause you to lose that round.

I thought it was because we (the knights) won the last registered round before beta end :/ now this helps me understand how we won.
5 stars to you for breaking down the basics, no stars for the artistic representation :p

this how Knight won

So we have

The open beta should've ended at 5 PST and not EST.

They didn't apply the rules they set at the start to decide the winner.

They gave the CBT reward to everyone and not only to the victors.

They didn't end the round like they did for the CBT.

Well vikings you got truly ****ed over :) GG to knight for crying so much they got the victory handed to them lol.

Not sure why people constantly ignore the Samurai's effort throughout the beta. During the Open Beta, the Samurai were dominating during the first 3 days and well into the last day when you go by the average number of territories controlled. (Which you can clearly see in the picture) The Knights would then be a close second, followed by a close third with the Vikings. However, taking the average number of territories controlled as the final score (which would accurately represent participation in the Faction War) makes no sense to Ubisoft. Instead, they only use the last period before the season ends. The system is prone to cheese from purposeful non-participation in the couple of rounds prior so that you lose multiple zones. As it stands, to win the Faction War, you want to have about 16-19 zones controlled before the last round because its incredibly easy to gain 7+ zones when your resources are not spread thin. A point accrual system based on how many territories you control at the end of each round would be far better than the last second zerg rush that we have right now. As it stands now, there is no point to actively participating in the Faction War by strategically deploying War Assets as it does not matter what you do until the last round. I am sorely disappointed by the pointlessness of the current version of the Faction War. Great Job on that one Ubisoft.

The other way to decide this would be to take the original way that Ubisoft claimed they would decide the victor, which is by total War Assets. In this case, the Vikings would have won. The Knights having the victory makes everyone feel cheated since by all accounts, they did not win.

For the record, let me get this straight...

A faction that spreads its assets throughout their territories and not just a single territory will gain territory?

Enough said. I can't believe we are putting our money behind a company as whimsical as Ubisoft. What are we doing with our lives wasting our time on this game.

I hope you are sarcastic here.

Why would i be sarcastic? Are you really going to trust a word Ubisoft say now in future after this farce? lol. More fool you if you expect reliability and consistency from them

Let me copy this:

4 OUT OF 7 HOURS OF THE ROUND DID NOT GET PLAYED ...

goddamit, that meager 2% advantage could have been soundly broken by 4 hours of actual playing; counting a round that was going unplayed would be unfair, especially to hand the victory to the faction that got the boost of the loser of the previous round.

So then please continue to explain why the open beta was closed 3 hours earlier than scheduled with less than two hours notice? You don't think that's a bit suspicious? you must not have played closed beta.

And in that half the knights stayed heavily negative more time would not have mattered at that point to be fair.

This exactly! If the reward for this was anything worth having I'm sure they would have a lot more complaints on their hands.

That's funny on the faction map those would be crossed sword. If you look here https://twitter.com/ForHonorGame/status/830911936267157506/photo/1 those crossed swords look Viking red to me.

Yes, that COULD be how it is, but the end of the Beta clearly ended like this: https://twitter.com/ForHonorGame/status/830911936267157506/photo/1 Vikings controlling most territorys.

You might not be an artist but that picture is simple elegance. KISS keep it simple stupid.

Honestly I hadn't even thought about it that much. That simple drawing though made it completely clear in an instant.

A tad sad how half viknabs and samnubs instantly jumped ship tho. Yet it will be fun when the next underdog wins again.
