I totally agree. I don’t care what anyone says. Boards at times for a lot of people are completely rigged. The game clearly takes into account the color you bring, and the mana speed of the heroes you bring. I seem to always fall just 1 tile short after clearing tile after tile after tile. Mind you I have 50+ maxed top tier 5 stars only, 5x 11+ mana troops in each color, 2x 23+ in every color and 1x 29 in each color. Every team I play with either has 4/5 or 5/5 heroes at their mana speed breakpoints, and all have 19 or 20 emblems. I am a long time very experienced player, and this game just isn’t fun anymore. Sometimes I bring teams of 5 very fast heroes with lvl 29 mana troops and 4 colors just to test this rng and I still fire zero specials. That means I’m getting less than 6 tiles for 4 colors which is very very unlikely. The actual mathematics behind the chances of what happens during my tests are like me winning the lottery jackpot 30x in a row with numbers drawn from a hat.
My theory is that this game “balances” by controlling winrates. If your win rate is too high, it forces impossible to win boards on you to lower your win rate. If it’s too low then it forces impossible to lose boards to raise your win rate. I’ve tested this in MANY different ways over the past 3+ years. Only when you are in the middle of the 2 winrate thresholds do you actually get fair workable boards.
It’s plain and simple. SG/Zynga are CL early lying about how their board system works. They are also lying about many other things in this game as well. At this point it doesn’t even feel like a game anymore. It feels like more of a simulation. Sg decides who will win and then you just go through the motions. VERY RARELY do I ever feel like the heroes I choose and the decisions I make have any impact on the fight.
Trust me I have so much more to talk about and point out here but I’ll bite my tongue. I’ll close by saying SG are the biggest scam artists I’ve ever seen in my life. Very stingy as well.
