Since the 1.14 update and the reducing the total alliance championship points needed Ludia has been skimming trophies in the tournament.
That -40 you took, your opponent only gets +20. So 20 trophies go into the void.
You can look at the leaderboards and compare them this month to last month and see its a huge difference. Part of that could be because the rewards are lame, but also mostly because ludia is skimming the trophies.
Why are they doing this?
- They just have no clue its happening (most likely)
- They are doing it in response to lowering the total points needed. They needed to come up with a method to keep the scores down so they aren’t giving away rewards. (honestly, this could be too advanced thinking for them though).
Will it be fixed?
No. They’ll tell you that the trophy system is calculating properly if you message them or “its being looked into”
But next time you take a -40 vs someone you recognize ask them howmuch they got and guarantee its only 20.
