Its a giant FU and middle finger to players.


Some can take it this way, what I see is some top players in Kreegans got the 3d Nymph and their performance in dungeon was not diminished, so I feel you are overreacting a bit, IMO

It may not seem fair to the 1% of players grinding this game like crazy or/and paying money, but it's also the exact opposite to the more casual players -the majority- by letting them have great creatures without needing to grind so much or pay money for it. It's great creatures available to ALL and I think that's a great thing for the health of the larger playerbase. Besides, you need to awaken, you need to enchant, you need to up your kingdom, you need the right synergies, so it's not like the casual who gets the 4d Nymphs will suddenly reap all the top 1 rewards.

That's really nothing to brag about.

Thanks, that helps.

My current attempts at dropping it below 1900 are going poorly: tried filling my dungeon with level 1 creatures, still not getting attacked at 1950.

Except by one player who attacked and then instantly quit, gifting me a free win and temporarily boosting my prestige back to 2000+. Urgh.

I guess pretty much everyone who's below 2000 is either inactive, or also trying to tank.

Unless I'm mistaken the correct formula for tanking is to be part of bottom 2% from your pool. So yes, usually somewhere below 2k.

So there's actual competition for the lowest rankings, and the players who are attacking me only to let me win are doing it to get rid of the competition. ...makes sense. Guess I'll have to start doing the same myself.
...
Honestly, this dungeon ranking system seems pretty broken. I didn't expect to have to fight to get a demotion.

You got it on the head. Dungeon, the whole tanking idea, and the reward system are all broken. Devs know this for a long time yet have made no effort to fix this

Well, there is two ways. You can either tank or simply fight your best with what you have and accept not being able to beat players that are 300 levels above yours.

Not even mentioning the developers have made a lot of changes to make the game experience better following fans feedback throughout the last year, I think you made your point loud and clear already in your last couple of posts, be it in this thread or in others Oliver. I have nothing against criticism but repeatedly bashing isn't going to help. If you have something to contribute to these forums, please remain respectful and try to add substance to your posts.

Ouch. I managed to tank for one round, but evidently rank 46 was enough to get kicked back to high gold. Even with less than 50% victory rate, which I guess isn't taken into account for tier changes. Not sure how I managed to get that rank with barely any wins, I guess a lot of folks in my bracket were inactive.

Looks like top 50 in low Gold is automatic promotion? Ah well, have to try to tank again now. (Since I'm not getting anywhere in the high Gold: any prestige that I gain is instantly lost within minutes, so whether I win battles or not makes absolutely no difference. Either way I'm stuck at 2000 prestige.)

Actually, no, this whole feature is so mindbogglingly broken (with same players attacking you every two hours, top players dropping into low Gold to get the top rewards, and players buying their wins with challenge points) that I don't see why I should waste any time on it anymore.

I know it's probably not much of an achievement to many folk, but I finally beat Battle Tower level 49 for the first time I can finally start collecting those greater essences to get my Colossus fully evolved.

It's amazing what using your head and putting together a smart team can do instead of just trying to brute force everything.

Dood, that's like REALLY low, you must be doing something wrong. Can I see your attack team?
