I will try to make this as short as possible (but I know I will fail). My team consists of one level 23, five 24s and two 25s, 6 Tyrants and 2 High Apex, and I have aplied a total of 7 boosts (2 dinos with 1/1/1 and 1 speed on Procerat). I’ve been around 4900-5100 trophies (highest at 5144 or so).
- How is it that I face much stronger teams of heavily boosted level 27-29 dinos, commonly Thors that are faster than anything I have and can pretty much one-shot almost anything except my Maxime (which usually don’t get selected when I face those, and can also sometimes be one-shoted by the 2x attack of such Thors). They also have a higher trophy count. Then I lose miserably, and then I lose 36-38 trophies!!! And when I beat someone, even if they still have better dinos than me, I only get 20-22 trophies. I just lost 4 in a row and dropped 153 trophies. I will have to win about 7 in a row to return to where I was.
I know they may have CURRENTLY less trophies than me. But still, then am I just being HEAVILY PUNISHED because I am skilled and have more trophies than I “should”, and are they being HEAVILY REWARDED for being much lower on trophies than they “should” be? So Ludia, do you think someone who has strong dinos but isn’t good enough to go higher in trophies, deserves to win much more trophies for beating someone with weaker dinos who is more skilled and thus have a similar trophy count? How is that fair?
It’s like a very rich football (soccer - or any other sport you like) team faces a smaller one, but they happen to be doing similarly on the points table. Let’s say Man City faces Watford and they’re both at about 50 points after 30 matches (which would be awesome for Watford and awful for City). And then the league goes like: if City wins, they get 5 points instead of 3. If Watford wins, they get just 1 point. That’s just because City has better (or more expensive) players. Does anyone think this sound fair?
- How is anyone supposed to have fun playing a game like this, getting matched against someone who has a dino that is faster and can one-shot all of your own dinos, and having to just sit there and watch their team get smashed? (At least give us a QUIT button!)
Ludia, do you still really think boosts are such a great idea? Is it working for you, are you getting lots of money? I mean, I know a company needs money. But this isn’t working for US, except maybe for a handful of players who are willing to spend many hundreds of dollars. Most of us are still playing because they love dinos, but are having less and less fun. You should think about the future. You’ve already managed to completely ruin JW:TG (does anyone still play that? Are the servers still running?). So, unless you have some great idea for a new game, you should really think about where you’re going with JWA. I really don’t want to quit, but each time I lose 4 battles in a row to much stronger teams and lose 150 trophies, it makes me wonder…
I really would like to hear from people who think this trophies system is fair. I think it should consider only the strength of the teams (including boosts) and not the current trophy count. And the boosts system really needs to change again, or even better, be gone for good.
