The Ulu Watu beach is so crowded these days... so much so that Solomon has decided to put together a small and friendly Coliseum in order to break the routine!
Get ready for a tournament displaying many similarities with Type 1!
The Coliseum with start tomorrow at 14.00 (GMT +1) and end on Monday at midnight!

A bit overdue, but I was aware that the later players who get the same score get higher, even before I became a Mediator.
I observed this during the 2016 Christmas Coliseum.
The main reason I believe is due to undertaking more risk. A player who does their matches early does not suffer the risk of getting less points in later matches from losing since their results are confirmed.
The best reason for playing early is to have a time advantage and a lower point loss risk in the later stages of the event. It is a strategy of when you play the matches.
In addition, some past Coliseums fall under a NewBlood week such as the Chaos Coliseum. In that, players did play early to avoid the threat of Behemoth as an option for the opponent. It was smart in my opinion otherwise, I admit to more later playing incentives sadly.
I admit as one of the players who played later, I got a score as high as 34th place. (154 points).
I do not see is as punishing players who play early to be honest.
@ jviana - it's based on my personal experience when i wasn't in ur staff. I remember i was very mad about that back in times, because i played early and lost some places because of that, but I couldn't do anything to change system so we can just adjust to it. That's why you can see a lot of players who finish their last match at the end of coliseum.
Valid points rowdy and I can see why playing first can sometimes be beneficial but then it should be about when you played most of your games and not just your last one (particularly considering you can just ask a friend to help you finish)
Obviously I will adjust in future coliseums but still think it should just be random
