1. Please note that the IP caps for crystal GvGs are soft caps as in the current GvG system. IP above the cap will be scaled down by 50%. It will matter quite a bit, in particular given that each team size is fixed, i.e. an IP disadvantage cannot be compensated through players numbers as in the open world. Based on experience gathered once the system goes live, we'll optimize the cap values and scale down where required.
2. We will review the proposed time zones based on feedback received. Any suggestions are welcome!
