People are saying why do dm tourney has exp AND clintz
let's say you are a horrible tourney player
you win 8 matches out of 30
you have 200 exp in 1 hour!
in dm if you lost every single game and did 8 games you would have about the same amount in 20 minutes
a moderate player wins about 14/25
congrats bro that's 350 expish
in dm if you won 5 matches out of 8 you would score the same
in 20 minutes
let's say you rock at dt
WHOA 420 EXP
I GOT THAT WITH 6 WINS AND 2 LOSSES IN 20 MINUTES
YOU SCORED #1 IN TOURNEY WITH 500 POINTS?
500 IN A DM WITH 7 WINS IN 20 MINUTES
As a Level 130+, I'll tell you that levels are meaningless. All it measures is how much someone plays, it tells you nothing of how good they are at the game.
500 DM score is a normal score, not impressive at all. The score system is set up to make that a reasonable goal. 500 in a DT is impressive. It requires an understanding (dare I say, exploitation) of the point system and a carefully balanced deck. Too many strong high stars, not a lot of points. Too many low stars, difficulty winning matches in a timely fashion. Of course, both modes require speed and luck, can't blame someone for failing to win if their last opponent waited until the last second for every move.
Sure, DM gives about the same BP in a third of a time, but it's clintz rewards are far less, it doesn't give credits (which are more valuable than the BP and clintz combined), and now there are the tokens which can give out more clintz (and tickets to convert into clintz), BP, and straight up cards. That's not even getting into the rewards of SVR and ELO.
At the time that I'm writing this, the players are roughly spread as thus: 150 Training, 280 DT (not active), 580 Fight Club (the rule-less wasteland), 70 DM, 320 ELO, 150 SVR, and 650 Duel (Here's where most of the DM crowd ran off to).
