No. You have very little chance to ever get the KO bonus. You are actually going to get a lower bonus for star count then if you played a 26* star deck in the second room. You will face significantly less newbs, crushing newbs is always important to winning DTs. During non-peak hours you will have trouble finding and opponent.
Raptor WMD - Thank you for the feedback. I have several questions to ask you:
Q1: "You are actually going to get a lower bonus for star count than if you played a 26 star deck in the second room."
Why is that? The bonus is of one point per star difference, with a maximum of a five points bonus - why does that mean that I would be getting a lower bonus?
Q2: "You will face significantly less newbs."
Good sir, I have to say that that statement makes it obvious that you have never played a D.T. at sixteen stars since the tier change, because two out of every three players you face are under level twenty with characters that are not fully levelled. What ground do you have to make that statement?
Q3: "During non-peak hours you will have trouble finding an opponent."
I refer you to my second question.
