There are many things very wrong with the second JWA tournament but I don’t want to focus on all of that right now. But I’d like to make one (no two, points). Given the outcome of the second tournament with scores in excess of 30,000 trophies something needs to change here, because this just isn’t a fair tournament at all. For 95% of the player-base it’s not even worth competing in, but yet we have no choice, which leads to me my first point.
Tournaments should be 'OPT-IN’
Not everyone want’s to compete, not everyone CAN compete anyway, lets at least have a choice about it. Secondly, and my main point:
Tournaments should be flat-levelled, i.e. all dinos entering tourney battles should be set to say L26 for the duration like ‘friendly’ battles.
This will give ‘everyone’ a fair crack of the whip for being the best (like no one ever was), rather than only for those with deep pockets and a lot of time (to grind against bots) on their hands. This will open up more types of dinosaurs to be used, not just the top line of legendaries/uniques every time. It will allow more people to compete and stand a chance of getting somewhere. If it’s to be a fair tournament it needs to be a level playing field. I’ve made this point before about competitive battling in Pokémon (main series) all contestants 'mon are flat levelled either to L50 or rounded up to L100. There is no level disparity. This makes for much more fair and skill-based battles where no one is excluded and anyone can compete if they wish.
