Since the tactic I use in quests and exploration no longer work in the arena, can I just set a weak defense team to get more easily attacked by weaker players so I can revenge and keep my streak, or just lose trophies to get matched with weaker players to keep my streak?
Arena is quite different, maybe I just haven’t adapt to this mode. No more waves so I don’t get to take a breath to heal my dragons and gain spirit and create special tiles when there is only one dragon left in a wave, and the dragons in defense team are boosted, I find it much harder to win in arena. Also, streak means that losing costs more than just one energy and trophies, so I can’t challenge a lot of times to get a good start where I can eliminate 9 purple tiles at the beginning and get a big combo then have Toothless take a shot to prevent enemies from using special abilities immediately then take most of them with other dragons’ special abilities. (That is not something you can experience everyday. That’s how I defeat enemies with two thousand more bp than me in the past.)
Now I have reached a stage where I can’t find an opponent that I am certain I can defeat within six rerolls. Seems really hard to keep my streak.
Some dragons just have super abilities, with similar bp, they are much harder to defeat. If I put one such dragon in my defense team, other players would avoid attacking it because they may lose. So what if I put them in the reinforcement? Although surely attacker can use the first few turns to get a good start more easily, and win more easily, at least the defense team would be attacked, and get medals when defeating dragons in the attack team.
If I can’t get more trophies by defeating others, (I have given up climbing, I get neither trophies nor medals by challenging powerful opponents) why not just go for medals and give up winning trophies? I have claimed the ranking reward I can possibly get, and I have no hope of getting to the top 200. So what harm can losing those trophies be for me?
