So, remember during the tournament when people would post screenshots of top 5 ranking players and their team was all level one dinos? I found a massive glitch that could explain that, and renders the last, and any further ‘tournaments’ pointless unless it is fixed.
All you need is two games going. When the flyers were introduced I thought I would start a new game so I could level them up with the rest of a team, rather than my present account, which has all level 23/27 dinos. So we’ll call that account the OLD and the new account the NEW. All you have to do is sign in on the OLD account, then go to the settings page, log out (of google play in my case) and log in to the NEW account. Here is the glitch. The NEW account shows the right arena and trophy count (see images to follow), but the rank is the OLD account ranking. Win with the NEW account, trophies get added to BOTH accounts. So OLD account moves up ranking without battling anyone. I figure some folks found this out during the last tournament, and just battled with level one teams and jacked up their other accounts standing.
NEW account, proper arena and trophy count - standing number is for OLD account.
NEW account team.
NEW account name on leaderboard at OLD account standing.
NEW account wins a battle.
Trophies are added to proper arena, but place for OLD account goes up.
NEW account trophies added to OLD account ranking - moved up 8 places while battling in the first arena.
This explains a lot… in my mind anyway… I may try and get to #1 tomorrow to just see if I can!
Until this is fixed any tournament it completely pointless. And if this is how some of the high ranking folks got their high rank - sorry to rain on your parade. (not really actually, because you totally cheated if this is how you did it.)
