Every time a tournament comes around; I groan internally. I am not a top level player; I have no hope of getting anywhere near the top and honestly have no desire to. However; I know that this means a month or so of even more aggravating and frustrating time spent in arena.
Arena is already by far the absolute worst aspect of this game, what with the bugs, the rng, and the insanity-inducing bs that is dracorex gen 2 spamming, its not something to be enjoyed; merely a chore to suffer through to gain the incubators I need to continue building my collection and complete the dailys for coin and cash. So when a tournament starts I know that first; all the high rank players are going to get booted down to have fun trashing players like me, then for the rest of the month I’ll be fodder for any player on a losing streak who drops down to my level. Facing full level 26 unique teams at the bottom of lockwood is not fun.
I honestly dont understand why the tournament isnt voluntary; not all of us play this game competitively. If they simply expect casual players to not play arena for a month while the high level players have their pissing contest then they’re cutting out a substantial portion of the playerbase. But then this is Ludia; I suppose I shouldnt expect much from them given their track record.
