CLASH TOURNAMENT , FIRST ROUND IS RIGGED.
The first week when they tell you to do battle to earn a spot in the top 8. Don't bother. They hand pick who they want. The first 8 they listed the other week was no mistake. It's who they wanted to be in the clash. Than when we called them out they panicked and choose a different group.
Secondly , the clash is nothing but tons of players battling themselves in fireball. Example , pony leader of the Russian clan.
Than there is the dark lords a known hacker clan that has been hacking a long time. Admins , have been messaged many times about them. By many players. But, do nothing and in fact let them in a tournament.
Last year atleast seemed to make sense. Those of us that track trophy earning can tell you some of the top 8 were wrong. Swift racers had a better average than dragon racers first week. But, admins did not check actually the numbers . They only looked within top 20 clans. They looked at Fikang racers to only since the leader mentioned there hard work.
Today, I happily say i am done with this game. Admins attack the players that used a glitch in there program for gems. But, the real hackers run free doing anything they want.
As I write this I am sure sod has already picked there winner for this year. They don't know how to actually check earnings. They don't look at the game. They don't even know who the clans are for the most part on top 100.
The burden of proof is on you.
The first couple of tournaments, they did show what clans scored. March 2015 I think was the first they did not.
I want to see how this turns out.
Oooooh! What do we have here? *sits next to Tibbles*
*hands over popcorn*
Here ya go!
*Pulls over another couch*
I'm in! I brought my own popcorn. It's scrumptious, the microwave is over thare if anyone wants some like this.
im in! hows it going? ~grabs a handful of popcorn stuffing into my mouth~ yummmy... ok who made the popcorn? good job! drinks anyone? i brought the store LOL
one for me, please xD
Me too, please! :D
(just going to put this here...) The Clash of Clans results for this tournament before they changed it to what it is now.
Spirit of Valhall did not compete in the tournament this year with this clan, and got 6th place.
The Phantom Lords did not compete with this clan, but with their new tournament clan, yet it got 8th place.
Why were these clans put in the top 8 when they did not even compete or get many trophies?
In the new tournament top 8 listing, Dark Lords are in second place, yet in the old listing shown above, they were not in the top 8 at all.
How is it that a clan not even in the listing all of a sudden shoots up to second place when trophies were recounted?
To be clear, this was not a simple recount of Trophies. There was an actual error in the manner in which the report for those stats was pulled, which is why the clans in the top 8 were so drastically reshuffled. As mentioned already to some of your fellow Vikings, there are technical systems in play recording account data and history of players in certain clans, which is reviewed at the end of each round of the tournament. The admins are not manually recording trophies earned in each round as they happen. So sorry for the confusion!
so... you track the players that gained a lot of trophies in past tournaments to see who is likely to win this years tournament? "history of players in certain clans" so how does it decide what clans to pay closer attention to, just the ones that made it in past tournaments?
Thank you for the response
No, as mentioned time and time again, tournament advancement is ONLY ever determined by the average number of trophies earned by a clan. The select portion of the text that you pulled refers specifically to the players in the top performing clans after round one which is "pool play" and open to all clans. That being said, the advancement of the top 8 is determined solely on the average number of trophies earned with in the specified round of gameplay. Once the top 8 is determined (based off their own merits from earning trophies), the bracket is then seeded to create the matchups as announced last week. Additionally, the mentioned account history can include dates that a player joined their clan, activity during the round of play to determine overall contribution to total trophies earned, etc. These are simply other things that are all monitored by our team along with final trophy averages. Hope that clears up some of your confusion!
yes it does, thank you :)
Though I am curious, why did you guys decide to stop showing the clan averages of the top 8?
As we mentioned to you many times before, we take claims of hacking very seriously and are looking into your specific reports in order to better safeguard our game systems for the future. If specific evidence collected from account histories and data can prove that certain clans are manipulating the game in any way for an unfair advantage, actions will be taken accordingly. However, we do not take disciplinary actions on ANY players of our game until we can support it with verified evidence from investigations by tech and production teams.
And despite what you have already convinced yourself to be true, tournament trophy counts are ONLY ever collected on Mondays at the end of each round of gameplay. At that point, trophies earned within the corresponding period of play are the ONLY factors that play into deciding which clans advance. And while incorrect standings were erroneously published last week, we can assure you that there are technical systems in place to track earned trophies and we have never used any other means to ever ‘choose’ the clans that advance in the tournament. Last week’s announcement issue was associated with an error regarding the manner in which the reported stats were pulled, and not the actual activity trackers used to record account and clan history. This tournament is based purely off of stats from the game and nothing more.
That being said, we understand that you have made up your mind about this situation. All we can do for you is reassure you that the assumptions you’ve presented here about how you believe our team runs this event are completely untrue and in complete disregard for the details regarding how this tournament is run. And while it was never our intention to provide you with such a negative experience with the game, we ask that you do keep in mind that we will also not tolerate any continued attacks on the integrity of our Forum Admins, as noted in our official Forum Rules, here: http://forum.schoolofdragons.com/content/forum-rules.
We understand that this isn’t the information that you want to hear, but we have already explained to you how the tournament is run and there is nothing more to it than that. And, so you are aware, to encourage the spirit of competition among already eliminated clans, we have decided to announce details on ways to earn consolation prizes once your time in the tournament has ended. For details on that, stay tuned for today’s announcement and best of luck!
If they showed the trophy count for each clan, what good would come from it? Clan members would be scrambling with stress, bitter losers would accuse the higher-up clans of hacking, and there would be even worse boosting and trapping. If anything, leave the SoD team to their jobs. They made an error in the wrong results, but they FIXED it.
Oh, and fun fact:
"Leaving a game" usually entitles to not obsessing over the competition that caused you to "leave" if it gives you so much stress.
When racing got boring and "stupid" i stopped. i can't believed some of you played for three year. I mean you can play but the only thing fun is racing but can be boring if you get annoyed everytime use only your fastest dragon. All this. I still want to Racing For VALOR but the game is too boring if your only desire is to race. Which is the only thing fun. Perhap. the are working on Fighting Arena cause the Striple Stryke is still not realised.
I stopped playing this game and i started playing WAR DRAGONS an onling Phone/tablet game. It will be the best game you ever played. Theres is about 5 SOD members who play the game and is in the SOD chat in war dragon.
Donyn i recommend you try to play war dragons.
This double posted all on it's own :/
Hey there you are. Good to see you around. Valor will always be open for you XD
eh im not really interested in clash of clans sure in the end you get a cool item but then alot of stuff starts firing up when the tournament comes around things like hacking and stuff, my clan and I didn't make it for sure but that doesn't matter to me tbh sure people want to get the gold during clash of clans but in the end what is it for? sure like I said you get an item and glory but after a month or so that just dies off and meanwhile others are still getting more exciting things done.
im not sure if any of this I typed made any sense Dx
