@Bandeezee is right we have seen no evidence that player participation affects trophy count.
@Keith seems odd but thank you for the clarification. So tournament this weekend is identical in terms of final reward. Not sure if you can speak to this but is Ludia using this as a test run? Trying to see which one players prefer? Putting them together seems like most folks will gravitate towards the Non MOD one because it is an easier go from a single battle perspective. So I wouldn’t think Ludia would get any good data around what participation would look like if it was a tournament by itself.
Thanks, I just hope this is not used as a data point for future tournaments since I believe the data will be skewed in terms of participation.
Given the option folks will choose the perceived easier go almost every time.
We won’t know the projected trophy requirements until more than half the tournament is over but for just the time investment of a MOD battle vs a regular battle I would think there would need to be a (5/7 ish) ratio to make it be close from a time perspective meaning the final score should be say 1,500 for the non MOD and then 1,100 for the MOD tournament. This would at least make them more closely equal from a time commitment.
I think a fair amount will do both, but I also think a fair amount will only do one and most likely will be the non MOD one especially as they get deeper into the tournament and realize what they are getting into.
