So this question comes up quite often and so here are some numbers for those to consider before dropping arenas/trophies next time.
However, first I would like to apologize to the last 25-27 folks which I had to stomp over to climb my way back up over the last 2 arenas since I do not have a midway team between 20 and my Elite and meta relevant deck for the past few seasons.
This table is representative of a level 20 user as they drop down arenas as to what percentage loss they will take in coins/dna as they derank to those arena levels. The numbers used are calculated based on one cycle/set of incubators along with the 5 battles to go with it in case you were wondering where the numbers came from:
***Note: At arena 5, you’ve completely loss all common dna from the incubators so it’s 100% loss at that level
So is it worth it to drop arenas? If you are dropping more than one arena level you are losing less than 10% across the board so any further deranking, you’re just adding on to your losses. Now is your losses made up by getting the RNG dino you are in need? Perhaps, but how much time/coins/dna have you given up for that handful of Epic/Rare DNA you got by increasing the odds of the dino pool at that arena level. Exception is if you are in need of Miragaia…lol. This table was precisely made for that visual purpose. I’m not encouraging nor supporting the act but I did do it for research/data purposes and I played fairly up to the point I could no longer…lol.
