We're getting confused about the other's confusion.
I think the thing that you are missing is that the war for the watchtowers only occurs on supers worlds on the verge of Crisis and that Crises are a natural and inevitable result of causality being overtaxed by the kinds of things that comic book readers see as continuity failures (but again, they aren't actually that meta in-setting, it is just easier to explain this way). So the best way to prevent Crises is to stabilize continuity and make it more resilient, just like Bronze Age comics, and also to try to make the new reality as much like the old one as possible, which also has the humane benefit of preserving individual identities.
