Not sure what your trying to say, but your questions are not questions that refute anything I am saying. I said nothing of boosts…I do not use any boosts. Many of the people with LV 30 commons do have maxed uniques…I said “except the top players and the odd balls that forgo uniques and legendaries for common, rare, and epics.” Top players encompasses that group of “top players”. There are players, even in the arena, whom I have been in alliances with, that do not create the uniques or legendaries in favor of making high level common, rare, and epics. Those players will do well in these advantage tournaments. Yes, advantage tournaments do pander to those specific groups of people, top players and the oddballs. Without being a top player, you cannot beat them unless you forgo building other dinos for the arena, then you may have a chance. In skill tournaments, everyone has a decent chance to get decent rewards, in advantage, you do not. Honestly, this is pretty much widely accepted among the forum.
For instance, I have been placing in the top 400 of the skill tournaments, but I place between the 1000-3000 in advantage. Why? Because of the exact nature of advantage tournaments playing out exactly like I am saying. Skill is not involved when someone can beat my whole team with one dino.
