In the updates section of settings there is a post about Team War- new matchmaking. In this post it says, "SEASONAL REWARDS Since matches should be more balanced and to reward players for their efforts, we will also increase the amount of War Medals earned at the end of the season."
This confuses me because I just checked the amounts of war medals given now and it is only 800 for Champion I, which is where my team usually finishes. Every season prior to this it has given 1600 war medals for Champion I. Is this a bug or intended? I didn't see any post about a reduction in end of season rewards.
If this was intended, it makes getting the diamond relic chests virtually impossible unless you save for close to a year. My team has been getting matched up with teams well above us in rank(last 3 teams were all top 85 while we rank 120-275 depending on recent wins and losses), so we get virtually no war medals or coins from normal team war matches.
I did not pay attention to other bracket rewards as I never placed into them. Is anyone else noticing a reduction in their brackets end of season war medals even though it was stated there would be an increase?
