The first thing to say is that these weekend tournaments have been excellent news to break the monotony of the main tournament, especially this month with a reward for being elegant, not very exciting. Failures aside, these tournaments deserve my congratulations to Ludia. They could be a 10 but it stays in a 7 for two problems of these tournaments that is difficult to understand because Ludia does not solve.
The first is a problem of medium importance. There is no way to know based on the varying scores per battle won or lost. Being in position 120 I have won a Top50 and has given me only 20 points. On another occasion being in position 110 I won someone who was not in the top 250 and gave me 40 points. The same happened to me in the defeats. How can this be understood? In the normal arena I could understand it by the level of the dinosaurs but in this tournament all the dinos were epic (very rarely a rare), all at level 26 and all without boost. Some explanation? This could be a serious problem but, I understand, it affects all users equally.
The second is the big problem of these tournaments. The problem that ruins the tournament for the majority of users and is none other than the fact that, on equal terms with dinosaurs, the turns are decided by the one who presses first, that is, the one who lives in a country closer to Canada, which is connected to a higher power network or that has a more expensive mobile device. It is frustrating to be compulsively hitting the mobile screen knowing that you will always lose. While you are in low positions you may win some confrontation but when you reach the top100 you know that you have no chance. You have the right team, the right tactic, the mental rappelling to execute it … but nothing matters, every three or four battles you will have your proceratomimus in front of a rival’s proceratominus “with priority” and you’ve already lost that battle … This is why most members of my alliance do not compete these tournaments beyond making sure some notes. On this occasion, four members decided to compete and the experience was the same for the four. The four of us will be Top250 but we are banned to reach a better position. None of the 4 was able to win any speed duel of perhaps 40 or 50 times that situation, possibly more. How difficult is it to leave this subject to chance so that everyone has options? I guess that will piss off the lucky few who always win speed duels (except among them, I suppose) but in addition to being more fair, it would make us not always see the same players in high positions.
