I brought up this idea a while back briefly. I think one of the easiest fixes for many of the “problems” that so many claim do and don’t exist or suggest ridiculous fixes for is a second tournament.
This second tourney would assign a numerical value by rarity. So something like 1 point (common) to 4 (legendary) and then limit the team total to 10 or whatever points per team (probably no uniques for this). The exact numbers could be debated or even change for tournament cycles. This would allow and encourage the “diverse” teams and expenditures. This tourney would not supplant the main tourney nor should it’s rewards do so. However the rewards could still be very good and probably focus on helping players with more limited teams do more.
This would also relieve some of the stress folks have about “OP dinos” since they could have a tourney that does not include many of them.
We have lots of free time between the main tourneys so I think this could be fun. There could even be time for a third tourney that goes with equal levels but I think that would be a seriously boring RNG competition or a “what have you unlocked” competition and rather purposeless for the game anyway.
