Know who we are battling before the match

#1

How difficult would it be to have our opponent name at the start of the match. I can’t see that swaying the match either way.

Would like to see this along with their Alliance

I dunno guys …
I wouldn’t hold it past some people to throw matches if they recognize a familiar face (especially if they’re in the same less-than-ethical alliance).

The arena doesn’t surprise me anymore with how shady some people will be.

Also … the Hawthorne effect

The Hawthorne effect?

Yeah I suppose. I could see a situation where if someone in our alliance really needed that last win to rank or something I would purposely lose…

The Hawthorne effect (also referred to as the observer effect) is a type of reactivity in which individuals modify an aspect of their behavior in response to their awareness of being observed.

And yes I googled this haha

I feel bad winning against my lower level alliance members in friendlies so NOOOOOOO please leave my Tournament opp anonymous.

And I agree it has much room for abuse.

You can sometimes guess who it might be based on their profile picture, especially if they have a less common one. Obviously, if you just battled you’re similar in rank/trophies and currently in the arena.

But I agree with pp, we shouldn’t know their name until after the match.

I would like a region identifier because I’ve played uk us and some European countries with no problems but every time I play a Chinese gamer I’ve got to restart my app

This morning I started a battle and their dinosaur never came onto the screen. The timer counted down 3 times and I did a force close. Was able to battle again to fill my last spot. Then about an hour ago the battle screen comes on and says I lost. This isn’t fair because I never saw any dinosaurs in the opponent’s spot and they took trophies away from me. Anyone have this happen to them?
