The problem with the current trophy and matchmaking system is any boost is considered 1 point. So a 2k damage, 129 speed Diloracherius is as boosted as a 1.8k damage 135 speed Thora. Even though the Thora obviously wins that matchup. Then because you lost to an “inferior” opponent you get docked 50 trophies.
The actual top players are kicked down due to having to beat fellow top players instead of a mixture to keep them away from the normies. So the sudden and consistent meeting of lvl 28 to 30s by players with 4.6k trophies.
The other effect is players whose teams are boosted in a certain way end up higher on the table than they should be in a strength competition. So a 10 boosted team will never meet a 50 boosted team but will be higher on the ranking table because they are the best for the boosts they used. Also lower lvl fully boosted dinos are lower power than mildly boosted higher level dinos. Even though reality says otherwise.
Ludia should revert back to the old system
