How to Rise in Trophy's - Losing more than Winning

So Yea. I lost 4 total battles and won only 2 but I gained 20 trophy’s from where I started.

I started out battling the time-out count-down AI and lost - 0 trophy loss.
I got a real person and lost - 30 trophy loss.
Now after 2 losses, I get the pity AI.
I beat the pity AI on the first try and gain 40 trophy’s putting me ahead by 10 from where I started.

So then I timed out in the next battle without the count down timer.
The next battle I got the time-out count-down AI and lost - 0 trophy loss.
I got a real person and lost - 30 trophy loss.
Now after 2 losses, I get the pity AI.
I beat the pity AI on the first try again and gain 40 trophy’s putting me now 20 from where I started.

So now I am at my ultimate high score. This wasn’t the plan.

This was my purposely losing, but furn team today.
