I play 5 times daily tournaments and 3 times I was to 25. place. Usually I need about 350 battle points to be 25. or better. It was not problem for me when I have characters and this character level during tournament. I take about 300 points by normal play and another 50 points by leveling. But this is too much. I cannot win tournament withought leveling characters.
Usually I can play arount 18 duels. I need to win 14 duels by 25 battle points to have chance be better than 25. But there are players, which win with 1100 battle points. It is impossible withought preparing a lot of characters for leveling and bet battle points by that.
Is not it good idea to reduce battle points by leveling characters? Because IMHO it is not about how good you play now.

Yeah two players could play each other over and over, helping to level their cards as quick as possible (even going so far as to use a set of decks full of cards near leveling) to gain mass amounts of battle points very quickly and easily winning tournaments without the threat of actual competition. i cant say whether or not this is actually going on, but the possibility is there.

IMHO this is the only way how you can win tournament with 1100 battle points. And this is bad.

Nope, playing and playing agains't the same opponent won't work in tournament because there is a anti cheat system in place: points & clintz are
reduced to 1 after 3 "similars" matchs during tournament hours.

It is really nice that there is anti cheat system against it.

But still someone can prepare a lot of characters before leveling and play with different oponents. Isn't it normal for EVO players?
When I win all duels - maybe 18 duels (duel per 5 minutes) by 25 battle points (hard oponent 5 levels above my level), i can get maximally 450 battle points.
But winners of tournament have much more points - 800 - 1100. How thay get so much of it?
IMHO it is good idea for reducing effect of it. There are two possibilities:
1) reduce efect of leveling - maybe starting level*2 or starting level*3 Points

2) Leveling give still starting level*10 Points. But no during turnaments. During tournaments there is no battle points from leveling.

We believe it's not unfair since it needs a lot of preparation, it's a strategy.
But we'll think about it.

There are other ways of getting high scores in a battle, not only from a leveling character. Getting high points from a leveling character is actually hard to do. What is more easier is trying to ko your opponent without using or using fewer pillz. You get an average of 30 battle points if you ko your opponent without using any pillz, much more if your opponent is 5 levels higher than you. Getting over 1,000 battle points is not impossible in a tourney.

It means to win 36 duels (1 duel per 2,5 minutes) by 30 battle points. No timeout, all winning. It is hard to believe. But ok, may be...

The last argument why are IMHO battle points from leveling bad:
When I prepare 1 character just before level to 5, I get extra 50 points from that. This is equal to win against 2 hard oponents. And need to win only 12, not 14 duels to be on 25. and better place.

I believe the people who win with 1100, 1500 and even 2000 points are not cheating, but have a nice guld with members that battle them thruout the entire tournament. That is like cheating, but it isn't. It's fair. Even you can do it if you have a guild that will help you. I made it to 3rd place in one tournament just constantly fighting people over and over. On day I will win a tournament. But not with guild help, on my own. There is no challenge to have 100 members challenge you that are in your guild. The challenge is to do your best with what you got and work your way to the top on your own. So let them keep having there guild help and when you do win the tournament it will be much more a rewarding win then it just being handed to you, because you were able to do it without assistance.

That's not true, you only receive an extra 40 points for the rules correct people; it says "Bonus if one of your characters level up : starting level * 10 Points"
