AW Rewards has always been a matter of a complaint. Summoners are not very satisfied with the season rewards as achieving higher rank requires to use boosts, health potions, etc.. Spending glory that you earn from Alliance Quest exploration is the primary source to spend on health potions. However, spending Glory to buy catalysts from Glory store is much better than spending them on health potions to achieve a higher rank in War that is not even certain. This is one of the reasons many alliances are AQ focused and care less about the AW. So Kabam is trying to make players put their effort into War as well by buffing the rewards.
