I keep seeing high level people in here complaining about facing overleveled bots in arena 7 all the time. I have just made it to arena 7 myself less than a day ago, so it’s not like I have a lot of experience, but so far I’ve only faced real people and had very interesting, thrilling and fun matches. I’m using a trick I read somewhere in Metahub and I wanted to share it here for people who don’t know it yet:
When you hit COMBAT, the game looks for a real human opponent for about 15 seconds, after which it gives up and matches you against a bot to avoid making you wait. So, if searching for opponent takes more than 10 seconds, just cancel the fight and try again in a minute or so.
I guess this can be a problem at higher ratings because there aren’t many players with enough trophies to match you against, so maybe you will have to wait a long time until you get an actual opponent, I don’t know. But it should be useful, at least for 3000-3300 trophies. Hope this helps!
