Ever so slowly I continue to gain trophy’s with a predominantly level 11-12 average team. This is my current 2nd account team (no boosts).
When I moved up to level 11’s I had just sunk below 1000 trophy’s and this is my trophy count now.
The teams I am pitted against are 1-2 levels on average higher but despite going up in trophy’s, they are not necessarily getting that much higher and stronger. I though I would have plateaued already but seem to keep winning more than loosing. I’ll see if I make it to the next arena 5 over the next week but I am playing over leveled alliance mission rewards, teams in arena’s 2 and 3.
This matchmaking is why average level 22 teams are getting up into the 5K trophy’s. They are not being pitted against level 30’s. They are being pitted against teams averaging only 2-3 levels higher at the most. Trophy’s don’t add that much to your team strength number.
As far as my little 2nd account little teams, I’ll see how far I get as I play against stronger teams, often half my trophy’s. I’m not boosting anything as to not give newer players a bad experience. Winning or loosing on my 2nd account doesn’t matter. I play for the fun of playing against different dinos than my primary account. I’m still competitive though and cheer when I beat a 15-17 sino’s, 13-15 einiasaurus’s and 13-15 concavonators. with my little 11’s.
I do keep switching different dino’s on and off my team. I’ve lots to choose from.
