How to maximize your trophies for Bracketed Tournaments

I have forgotten everyone that has contributed to this over the last 3-4 bracketed tournaments but you know who you are and the whole community thanks you for your data contributions. After running through the leagues today on the latest Aquatic Bracketed tournament I can safely say that the bands work for both Jurassic and Aquatic tournaments. The elusive Bracketed Cenozoic tournament is yet to be tested. But for the time being the below data will hopefully help you maximize trophy count or put together usable teams in order to compete in those tuff bracketed tournaments. A note to everyone this data is only for the Heavyweight bracket (typically lvl 60+).

Scores below are AFS, if you are unclear on what that is read this thread…

Happy Hunting…

Fantastic work :wink:

Excellent data and work as always :clap::clap::clap:.

Take a couple of catches from my morning round, I got these matchups.

The 1st battle gave me 20 trophies.

The 2nd in league (bronze) forget the name, it also gave 20 trophies.

The last 3 are hunter and I got 40 trophies.

The next 5 battles are from Predator to Dominator and I got 40 trophies per win. I didn’t get the data from ASF but surely it is in the range you have shared.

Thanks to your data I can “play” with my combinations to try to further optimize my races in this type of tournament.

:clap::clap::clap:

PS: How complicated are the battles with ferocity 2287 and the like in dominator?

You have to “dance a little” to achieve victory.

Is it easier or more difficult than with older AFS?

I would’ve provided prey league data last bracketed tournament but i thought you had all the gaps filled. As i started my run with only 10/12 hours remaining i had like 4/5 battles in prey league.

Higher the AFS the easier the match so with a bracketed tournament I always suggest sticking to the higher range if you have the creatures to do so, since the number of trophies does not get affected. Typically the FMF strategy is how you would achieve some of the lower AFS range and still have a good fighting chance, which in either type of tournament falls with a Main of around a lvl 30 VIP.

This strategy in a bracketed tournament I would only recommend if folks were looking to stretch their lineup to squeeze more matches out of a less capable line up.

This was at prey 30ish position .

2540ish AFS.

Great answer ; I perfectly understand the point.

I was wondering how to stretch my lineup and if I would find easy matchups by lowering the AFS, but I think I’ll stick with it.

Thanks a lot

Thank you so much for this! Every time there’s a Bracketed tournament I get extremely frustrated because of the trophy count issue lol, will bookmark this thread for next time onwards :wink:

My account has properly died…
:frowning:

We will be able to test Cenozoic’s this week to see if these hold true in that biome as well. :+1:t2::+1:t2:

Anyone been testing these limits in the Cenozoic tournament?

A single level 20 VIP got 30 trophies as an opener. Afterward, it got 40 trophies up until Hunter. Hunter through Predator, I needed 2 level 20 VIPs to win, but I was still getting 40 trophies

Yeah I just went through and the scores do not line up with the Aquatic and Jurassic from what I could tell.

I posted several in the early phase of the tournament, before it died, hope these help.

And this one was level 50 or so Dominator, for 40 cups

Edit:

L46

40 cups

L40 lost - miscalculated a move in the middle

And again L40, 40 cups. Lucky with the draw on this one, wouldn’t normally try a 3 snow team but everything else was on cool-down

Amazing work! Your work helps us to run tournaments more efficiently.
Please let me allow to ask a question about the table. Does the “Trophies” mean that we can get the number of scores at the certain rank when we use the creatures with the certain AFS?
For example, regarding Dominator, does it mean we can get 33 trophies with AFS: 6603.3 when we are at rank:98?
In addition, I’d like to confirm the table is a data you and community members provided through actual battles.
Your answer will help me to get a better understanding of your work. Thanks.

For Dominator it doesn’t matter if you are at rank 100 or rank 1 the trophy count is the same based on the ferocity you bring. For all other leagues it does matter what rank you are at as the scale grows as you raise through the various leagues. The scales at the beginning of this thread are for Aquatic and Jurassic bracketed tournaments the Cenozoic scale has not been developed yet but you can use the above as a gauge just know the scale is lower it seems for Cenozoic.

Yes these are based off of actual battles.

Thank you for answering my questions. I understand what you mean. Actually, I didn’t know how is Ferocity Calculated before I read this thread and I’m looking forward your next update regarding the Cenozoic scale!

So… I was going to try to follow this guide for the current bracketed tournament. The problem is that my max AFS is probably around 2500 ish so it wouldn’t be ideal to use my top dinos for every league. My plan was to just get 20 trophies every round using my weaker dinos until I got up to the higher leagues. However, I was consistently killing the opposing team with one dino so I decided to see what would happen if I used FMF. I may have discovered something new?

My first battle I tried this was in Upper Survivor using level 20 nundagosaurus as my main (1963.2 ferocity) This would be an extremely low 700 AFS?
Next I had 3 battles in Hunter using 2 more lv 20 nundagosaurus and a lv 20 ophiacomimus (2006.4 ferocity)
In Predator I used level 30 legendary dinos as my main (2259-2394 ferocity)
I did one battle in Dominator so far using level 30 Scaphognathus (2477 ferocity)

I won all these battles and won 40 trophies every match. I am level 60 so I am barely in the heavyweight bracket…idk if this affects that at all? Maybe someone should try this out to see if it works for them as well. I feel like this would be way easier to get trophies than 2000+ AFS every round especially for weaker players like me.

Edit: Just did 8 more matches in dominator with level 10 VIPs as main (2590 ferocity) and got 40 every time. The matches are also fairly winnable. I had maybe one match that was close but I still ended up winning.

Yes your level will have an effect, however there has been no data collection to verify how much and in what way.

The data up above is almost exclusively at lvl 99.
