Suggestions/Comments: 

My background is actively node warring at T2/T3 level for 3 years as Mainball and Staff setting up the node wars

The benefits 

1. Reduced or no diplo due to finding out where you are 10 minutes for NW start - I don't think I've seen any other role in setting up a NW burn more people out than doing Diplo between all the Alliances on a NW and some of their dented members. Members hate diplo and diplo hates doing diplo.

2. No base placing - This should alleviate the need for Alliance builders to be available from 00:00 to one hour before the node starts to either build a base early in the best spot fast or late to coincide with diplo rules. Also removes awkward base placement with terrain issues.

3. NW for as long as you want by targeting a territory with less or more time.

4. Multiple tries at winning a territory - If you fail to capture the 20 minute area you can try for the 30 minute too, for example.

5. Bigger alliances are incentivised to go for longer timer areas to capture both mode PvP content and higher tax rewards if won.

6. Don't have to force or find people to do bad/boring roles like Cannon, Flame Tower or Defence.

Bad changes

1. Removing strategy - Removing Building, Defence, Cannon and FTs removes the unique strategy and skill that comes with doing Node Wars.

2. NW lasting only one hour - If people can NW for as short as they want by targeting lower time areas then why is the maximum time not the same 2 hours we have now? There has already been a reduction in PvP content recently so why hinder it further?

3. Last hitting area to win it - I feel like this could introduce underhanded tactics where you work so hard to kill a fort and then a guild swoops in at the end, does one hit to steal and then all your hard work is for nothing. It doesn't incentivise fighting and will hinder both the new guilds, that these changes are trying to help, as well as the bigger guilds.

Conclusion

Good changes are listed to remove the hassle for staff setting up the node wars and barriers of entry for newer guilds but overall there are some key glaring issues.

A less polarising idea would be to just revert the Node War attendance caps to before the increase in September as this forced guilds to die out, stop doing node wars or drop node war tiers when they may not want to due to attendance issues or join bigger alliances thereby creating less alliances to fight on a node war overall.

A note to the community: I wish our first reaction to a change wasn't akin to a dented, Twitter hate mob. Especially to something that was described in the official translated stream as "While we're still in the preliminary stages of development, we'd like to still introduce what we are THINKING of." I wish they would show us more content that they are thinking of so we can comment and provide feedback calmly with what we like, don't like, improvements and solutions.

But I know asking for brain cells from the herd mentality is as wishful thinking as hoping the Prime: Mutilation gap is removed for Succ Guardian :)

changes are .... to put it bluntly - idiotic. 

they had a winning recipe at basically game start, how they are managing to downgrade it with almost every "update" is beyond me.

Just like they've always done from the very Korean OBT - listen to vocal Korean minority who don't even play game (i was there, i remember removing of flag system, Koreans who was in PVP had zero undestanding why PA did that).

Just check out this forum, people with "feedbacks" usually is private account or "i don't have thousand hours to grind, so i spend them on forums (same as private they just don't care to hide it).
