Are tourneys biased?

Just wondering about the Team matchups and how do they work. Is there any hidden grading in the system?
For this week I did really well (in fact my best performance so far) only having one loss in 25 matches. But my total score it’s not even close to breaking in the 1000th. I’m currently at 4000th+ position with 16000+ points. But the top players have all 19000+. I couldn’t have lost so many points in between because I won 24 matches and lost one match with partial points. So it’s either the players this week were really good or there are some hidden grading in there like remaining health after victory factored in
My defense team on the other hand. Barely anyone got matched with me. Some weeks I get challenged by 3 to 4 players a day. But this week it’s just one per day. And my defense score sits at ‘d’ and it’s going to affect my scoring.
Currently in the 1% but i’ll be pissed if I ended up in the 5% later during the final scoring

Difference from 5 days of a D grade compared with 5 days of an A grade is 2500 points, which is alot. Sometimes we also forgot that its top 1%. Randomly, that’s worse odds than getting a hotm on a eht. You should have to be on your game with both offense and defense to earn it.

Try this:

Each opponent you face in raids has a Difficulty Bonus that is determined based on the performance of their Defense Team compared to your previous attacks.

Raid Tournaments are scored based on four factors:

  • Enemies killed: The amount of enemies killed during your attack.
  • Winning: Victorious attack will award extra points.
  • Difficulty Bonus: Winning the attack will award points based on comparing the performance of the opponent’s defense team with the performance of your attacks.
  • Defense Team Grade: Your defense team will receive points at the end of each Battle Day based on their performance

What I meant is there’s barely anyone challenging me this week for defence. For my offence team, even if I won all my matches, my total score just goes about 17500 points which is still not even close to the top player’s points. So for offence I don’t know what I’m doing wrong despite me winning a majority of my matches

If you lose and rebuy you keep all the points you got during the losses also. Most of the highest ranked teams probably got there going 25-0 with “A” ranked defense the whole time, but losing 4 times in really close matches could be worth ~2-3 extra wins worth of points

Peak points is falling around 625-635 per win.

You mentioned it earlier, it’s your defense where you are comparitevly losing points. Its not your offense that’s the problem.

I only lost once this week so I didn’t buy anything

And that’s the thing. I’m not getting matched enough

During the 5 days. I got matched 6 times only

Unfortunately, thats still one of the intermittent issues that pops up. That doesnt help you, but most if us can empathize with you. Sorry, it’s not fair and it sucks :confused:

Imho 6 times is a fair number, I’ve had worse quite a few times, although it can also work to your benefit if you get lucky

Well that’s life. There are weeks were I used gems to continue and even manage to get to the 1%

6 times is not unusual for a defense that goes unbeaten.

But when your defense is sh!t, you’ll have more defensive match-ups because everyone needs a pushover for an easy win every now and then.


P.S. Don’t load up healers on a defense in a Bloody Battle Raid Tournament. Make sure you pay as much attention to the “Tournament Rule” and not just the element restrictions.

I have several 639 point wins…so it at least goes that high. You have to have a strong defensive team and have done well in previous tourneys to get matched up to the top teams I think…

Discussed many places elsewhere:

My explanation of matchmaking based on information given by the Devs:

And a master thread regarding defences not being attacked much/ at all:

I have met a team some weeks ago that used all underlevelled heroes. This caused my score to go down because of the difficulty bonus. It’s quite disruptive and unfair to the other player. Wished I SC that nonsense

What scores were you getting for each win you had?
My overall score is 17,573, I am currently ranked 1580 (will probably change soon) and I had 1x Grade A, and so far 3x Grade B (it will be another Grade B, so an additional 650 points once it ends). My defense team is 3,643 TP. The teams I was using to win was the exact same for most.

My starting battle score was “only” 603 pts for the win, gradually increasing - depending on if I lost.
I lost 3 lives total, so I went 22-3

My attack scores were as follows:
603
610
618
625
630
631
628

So yeah, sadly it’s all down to your defense it seems.
My defense was attacked 17 times, I won 10 and have 7 Loss…

I know what it’s like to have no attackers, it has happened with me in previous tournaments and it definitely is unfair. I think if you dont get attacked at all in that day, while you’re in the tournament still, you should automatically get a Grade B, or maybe C at least, to get SOME points.

Also, are your fours all heavily emblemed? If not, then the teams you’re matched with initially won’t be either, which would lower the amount of points available?

I did have an unemblemed tibs on it. You think he’s the reason?
