I am barely staying in predator league, because I kinda took a long break from this game. :sweat_smile: so let’s hope I can just stay up in there. Good luck to everyone!

I have had a good tournament so far I’m still in first place in dominator league and I have finished the daily missions and completed the challenge events for today just two more challenge events for Sunday and Sundays daily missions then just keep playing in the tournament but the spin wheel is still awful I have not landed on anything other than vip mystery packs and DNA,DB, food and coins

Thanks for that.

I guess someone could have tried to cause an issue

My preferred lineup is one of my herbivores as a meat shield (apatosaurus my favorite but only have one so often use my hybrids like the pachy in this spot) and then an amphi and carnivore. I’ve rarely lost with this unless the opponents are very overpowered. But since I have so many pteros and carnis I do mix it up, will often use 2 of one class and 1 of the other to use these up.

At least today is starting on a better note, have dropped into the bottom half of Dominator now and tried one match, didn’t just win that, but won handily with my meat shield not only saving 4 reserve, but taking out the leadoff carnivore as well. Rest was a piece of cake. I’ll see how things go after letting it fall back down further.

Another day where the PvE matches didn’t require using any of my tournament dinos. It looks like that will not be the case tomorrow though so I definitely would like to get close to the predicted points needed for this tournament today if I can.

So far I earned in 3 days 30 dino bucks in this tournament in almost 70 fights.

‘We want to make the game more balanced.’

I don’t know if I should laugh or cry.

Sad, but you may get DBs when you win the Archleon pack.
The Dominator wheel is always more DNA based for me. I’ve been having succes buck-wise with daily missions and random trades

My one win yesterday did earn me 40 DBs. Still not enough to cover what I paid for in DBs for the entire day, but compared to how few we are getting now on that prize wheel it felt like a windfall.

I think we are seeing more and more how Ludia’s idea of “balance” means get players to spend more and more DBs to play the game while reducing every possible chance they have to earn them. Tournaments starting to look like yet another way they are tweaking the game to suck DBs out of us, with adding another day, and reducing the chances to earn back what you are spending just to play (let alone having to use speedups).

Just another update on my progress still in first place in dominator league and I just won something good on the spin wheel

also based on the bottom score in dominator league being 968 in 2 days if they score the same in the last 2 days you will need at least 1936 trophies to be in 100 place in dominator league this is just a guess

TBH i’m still grateful for a 4 day long tournament, seeing that the first ever tournament in this game (Mosasaurus before the aquatic update) ran for 30 days😰. They’re still having mercy on us😂

Definitely looks like being in the bottom 50 of Dominator is my safe spot. No losses yet, in several matches. Even getting away with using some stuff lower than my VIPs, so as the point spread widens more I should be able to slowly add points while staying at about the same spot. I did get a 500 DNA reward so that at least is something that I couldn’t earn in the same amount of time watching a couple ads for free. But for the most part there seems little point in spending DBs to do more than just qualify into Dominator, vs for instance playing mod PvPs.

Ha! Well a tournament THAT long becomes a completely different animal, I doubt you would see anything like the kind of activity we tend to see on these shorter ones throughout. I think someone else had the suggestion of having a month-long “tournament” of types for PvPs, where your total wins compared to everyone else would determine your prize. So would be pretty similar to that.

Back at the top, but this is not going to last for sure.
Getting these very poor rewards after each fight is killing my motivation for this tournament.
I’m confident that I have enough to finish in dominator but I’m not sure if I’m going to continue…I’m afraid that I will in the end…hope dies last.

Here’s my bracket data. Today is running SO completely different than yesterday. It’s like someone flipped a switch. My matches not just easier, they are often MUCH easier, where I’m completing them with 2 dinos still standing. Well, at least now I know, if I work my way up that high on Day one again, just plan on skipping the entire second day.

Oh, and just to add to how much better today is going, actually won an Aquatic pack! 2500 DNA, food and a Xiphactinus, which I still need to complete to unlock the hybrid. Definitely wouldn’t mind a few more of those.

Lucky you.

My battles have been extremely tough.

I have not lost but not done many due to cooldown. Had to use my best teams and what I was coming up against was not nice.

Did win an aqua pack just now with 2 x 250 db in it and earlier1000 dna.

Yeah, the rewards have been pretty bad. Nothing at all to speak about and I’ve been in Dominator since shortly after this tournament started…

I’m at 310 dino bucks from the tournament today.

I’m probably around 85 matches played. As a guess I’m breaking even dino buck wise. Probably close to 30,000 dna accumulated.

2nd place guy (bot) keeps trying to sneak up on me…

Current projected finish for the bottom of Dominator is: 1,696 points.

The tournament is still steadily picking up the pace, so it at the current rate it’ll likely finish a little bit higher than 1,696 (Potentially even as much as 1800-1900).

Projection formula:

1074 (Bottom of Dominator League now) MINUS 230 (Starting point for Bottom of Dominator League) = 844 (Points accrued since beginning of tournament)

844 / 57 (Hours tournament has been going) = ~14.81 points per hour

~14.81 x 42 (Hours remaining) = ~622

Projected points remaining to be added

622 + 1074 = 1696 Projected points for bottom of Dominator (Up 97 points from 11 hours ago)

Also all of my prizes during this tournament have been pretty bad, maybe the worst ever.

I have not played since earlier today but I’m still in first place in dominator league

I won an Aquatic pack too, quite a pleasant surprise after those weak prices during the tournament.
