As a result from dropping experience after last season change, let me talk about one specific thing:
I went from 0 trophies to 4833.
Always using creatures at compatible levels, like my old apatosaurus or something at first arena. Then upgrading team after each battle to climb.
No boosts at all.
What I realized: battles were always balanced, and upgrading a creature allowed me to climb some trophies as expected…
until i reach near 4500 trophies. Then the curve started to accentuate upwards incredibly.
upgrading team started to benefit nothing, and i started to change my team creature by creature to my top ones.
It was 300 trophies of me seeing nitro creatures, top level apex creatures and so.
I upgraded slowly my team since arena 1, but after hitting Aviary, I needed to change from level 25 legendaries to lvl 30 tyrant uniques until i have no more options and stuck at 4833.
What about this: from 4803 to 4833 i did a climb of more than 2000 in global rank.
Does this mean we have 2000 players at same trophies?
I would love to se a graphic from ludia devs, showing the number of players at each trophy number.
Are top league arenas condensed this way too?
