I’m typically up near shores (in the 5800s-5900s) with the occasional hop into shores. My battles take about five minutes each. On days like today, when the game decides to give me awful matchmaking/RNG and I go on a losing streak, I can spend a half hour playing and not earn a single arena inc to show for it. I just finished all the takedowns for my DBI without a single win. How many hours am I going to have to play to fill my four inc slots?
It’s gotten even worse since the shores matchmaking change – out of my five opponents today, four are shores players who have either dropped out or gotten pushed out. I’m not a dropper myself, but I completely understand why people drop to avoid this. I could have filled all my inc slots in that half hour if I didn’t feel so bad about dropping down and steamrolling lower-level players. Ludia created this problem, and Ludia needs to fix it.
