Suggestion for the balance and fairness of Assault event.
There are problems in the assault event, which affect the fair playground of community.
1st : People use low level event dragon , as mythics from level 1 to beat stages easier and gain maximum points with, which lineage dragons cant even get close too. For people who dont let there dragon being small, or in reserve, its impossible to keep up. And so the ones with that tactic get all in rankings, for lower effort. After that they can level the mythics or other low saison dragon just from stage to next stage, and win much easier, because of the better movepool and often lower power everywhere. Or they have already many, and let certain ones at a stage, and use different ones from stage to stage. Beside that, having dragons in lineage on low level is a similar problem, because that way they can adapt it with rider differently, where people who have them at expert, never get the chance to comepete in rankings. ( example could be like, low level hauheset vs level 35, or very low level lineages for different tiers)
2nd: Specially in close matches, the dragon research affect points badly. So that people who has them , are in a disadvantage , because there lowest possible dragon is often stronger in power, where people, no matter how hard they try, will loose. That happens for example in red tier, where lowest possible dragon at level 10 without runes or anything, still cant get the points others can get with.
To solve this 2 issues in gaining points, after all that decides who get prizes from global rankings, i would suggest following things.
To solve this fairness problem :
- Restrict usage to only “expert” dragons.
- enable or disable the research for dragons for all players for the assault flights.
With the restriction of the usage of only expert dragons people cant just use level 1 mythics or other not expert divine dragons in stages, where linage dragons cant compete with. This would make sure, that people only could use the expert dragons for this tier. Beside that, it would create a fair situation where people couldnt just let a dragon on a tier at low level, and adapt it as it is a advantage for him, with rider or different boosts.
With the enabling or disabling all dragon researchs for this flights, you would make sure that people dont have a disadvantage for having some Atk or HP boosts for there dragons, which increases there power compered to those who hadnt.
After all the assault event is not just to finish 1-6 level per tier… the prizes at the global rankings are the reason, why people use those tricks and advanatges over others, to get everywhere alot, where other people cant even get close to it, no matter how much they struggle, because the baseground wasnt fair from the beginning.
I hope this suggestion will find open ears, because i believe it is one which is not a “extra”, it is necessary for the game philosophy. It is a suggestion for the fairness and in the favor of the community, so that certain few people dont take all, because they loose some loophole others cant.
3rd: The prizes in global lines are that amazing high, that often people are very close or at same point. According to the timezone , one can have a "ideal " score first, the other who just get late the chance later.
To solve this , the prizes could be adapted in a way, so if 3 people at top have 1900 for example, that they all should get 1st prize prizes … Like 1. 1. 1. 4. 5. and not 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. as it was.
Or you people of PG adapt those prizes in a way, where for example different stages offers different prizes like global offers too… Where a certain checkpoint of points get you the potrait with the max prizes… depending on tiers , it could be set like … 1850+ get the first class… 1800+ get you the 2nd class… 1750 the 3rd, and so on … Ofc than only the first class would be that potrait of a assault champ… Which need to be discussed with Gameplay Fraction and people who know this stuff.
The reason why i wrote about the 1st and 2nd case apart from the 3rd is, because i believe the first two cases are a must to do , where the 3rd is something people from PG need to look for.
Please look about this, and suggest for priority the 1st and 2nd suggestion to the team, i think it is necessary to have.
