It seems to me like 5000 is now the central trophy target.
If you are below that then you will get 35-40 for a win and 25-30 for a loss.
If you are above that, then it is reversed.
The idea is that they need to consolidate all the players in that range because there are not enough active players at any given time to allow normal matchmaking to function.
I used to fret and cuss over every loss and every drop in trophies… but no longer. I don’t even care about my score any more. I win a few and lose a few… but eventually kill enough and win enough to get my incubators for the day.
I now fluctuate in Aviary between 4600 and 4875. It seems to depend on the time of day as to the level of the opponents I get. Sometimes I lose 0-3 and sometimes I win 3-0.
What I’m saying is that it helps to remember that trophy count is NO LONGER a measurement of how good you are… it’s just a matchmaking variable that is being manipulated by the app to cluster us into a larger pool centered around 5000. Nothing more. Nothing less.
Stop stressing over the number. Just fight.
