We are seeing more and more players with high level uniques - the best battlers in the game. Especially from the St Patty’s Event. Eventually we get to a point where 1000s of players have them all at level 30.
At this point the top of the Leaderboard will be more random. Not completely since RNG is not the only way to win, there is still an element of skill and team composition. But the very best won’t always rise to the top, sort of like the best golfer in the world still only wins 20% of the time at most.
So then what?
A few possibilities. Ludia can mix up the relative strengths of existing creatures and are doing that already. But many players at the top will have spare DNA to quickly replace their team. Adding new powerful creatures is good. It will take awhile to level them up and those who play the most or pay to win will take the lead again. That’s fine, the most dedicated should receive the rewards and Ludia needs to make money to keep employees.
But how else can the best players who are deserving to be at the top actually make it there? I don’t think many want a true random leaderboard.
