    I mean you can also generally just tell from Fight Duration but I'll admit show a Hit Count (not Hit Streak) would also make it really obvious.

    Battlegrounds is clearly designed with only the whales in mind. This has to be the biggest cash grab event ever put on by Kabam. Seriously don’t waste your money on this ****. The matchups are complete garbage. The bugs are worse (block and evade). The problems just continue.
    Yes, The rewards are nice. But the stress level to get even close to those aren’t worth it. Very one sided event. The vetting in the game is horrible. You could be uncollected and go against a paragon player. Clearly not gonna work out. The match ups wouldn’t be so bad if they kept it the players within their own ranking.
    Paragon v. Paragon
    Thronebreaker v Thronebreaker
    Kabam has dropped the ball again. No matter how inflated it may be.
    Get smart Kabam.

    To separate matchmaking like this you'd have to also bracket off the reward tiers based on progression. Can you imagine the crying when Cavs or TBs were gated out of top tier rewards regardless of whether they had any chance of ever getting them in reality?
    I sympathize for the Cavaliers/new TB's trying to play this game mode. I'm Paragon, 4 R4's, mostly R3's in my deck. I'm putting up 52K-54K in a fight and that is barely scraping victories for me in Bronze. Should there be a system that restricts matchmaking to Paragon vs Paragon, TB vs TB, Cav vs Cav? Absolutely not, that's ridiculous and not how competitive game modes work. However, I do think Kabam dropped the ball a bit by not doing something to separate us at the beginning. A lot of competitive games have something like a Placement Phase where you performance for a small number of games is used to determine where your starting rank should be. Kabam just put everyone at the bottom and there are obviously people who don't belong there.
    IMO, the matches should be set by the current bracket and not the roster. It'll suck for the low players at first, but the end game players will soon tier themselves out. Eventually, it will all balance out and people will settle in the tiers that they belong. It might not seem fair to face rosters full of R4s and R3s in Bronze to new Paragons but on the flip side, an end gamer only facing other end gamers and at those low levels isn't fair either. Obviously, it would have made much more sense to start the different titles at different tiers, but Kabam doesn't think like that.
    100%. Whether it's by Tier or a Battlegrounds specific rating. That will allows be the best matchmaking criteria. Let an individual's success in the mode determine the quality of competition that they face. Although even in the last Beta, Kabam did a little bit to help by having your Progression Title start you with a different rating. I know it will all even out eventually but when you have time specific rewards (i.e. win 5 matches every 48 hours), it does encourage everyone to hop in immediately and some people will then be undoubtedly overmatched.
    I agree and don't because people are people and find a way to bypass stuff. Newest trend I have seen on line chats is to lower you pi so you can steam roll lower accounts. They put like 9 1 and 2 stars in there deck to hopefully get easier match ups.

    The whole gamemode is poorly thought out. What a waste of time and money.

    Kabam disappoints yet again.

    Holy **** the grind to get from diamond 1 to vibranium is toxic…. 5 wins in a row is ridiculous and there are so many people max boosting or just have absolutely insane rosters

    Yup. Wish there was a way to go back to a lower level after we reached our limit. Now we can't even get the 5 simple wins required for the minimum 48-hour reward. It's pointless keep playing after that. And kinda sad honestly.

    That's not too easy for me. I m the only one who plays BG in my alliance, and I m in different timezone from a couple other friends that play. But thank you for the tip anyway!

    I avoided battlegrounds after the first few days but have played quite a bit over the last 48 hours and currently sit at silver 1

    The grind to get here is a poor player experience no doubt.

    Ways to improve in my view are:

    1. Make the earning of little medals in each tier work on a basis of total wins - so you are less punished by getting to 2 medals then losing 3 in a row and back to square 1. Still a lot of fights to complete victory track

    2. Matchmaking based on position and nothing else (like the betas) but separate each major progression title at the start so that paragons and TB start a tier or so ahead

    3. Combination of 2 and 1 above make it more skill based to progress (avoiding segregated progression tracks by progression title) but also hopefully gives everyone the ability to complete the victory track in the month, as bigger roster players progress more quickly into gladiator track

    4. Make alliance rewards available from spending energy. This will encourage team participation and get more of a sense of buy-in within alliances. Maybe need to rebalance rewards - replace some trophy tokens with small or large energy refills and move more trophy tokens to solo event

    Solo event then becomes the reward from the effort put into victory track.

    These changes might tip the balance in favour of actually bothering with the mode and making the experience less frustrating. BG should be something that arguably can be the best and most consistent reason to log in and build broad based accounts.

    So making it easier to climb the victory track makes it MORE skill based? 😂

    So, what I can say is, that nobody in my alliance is interested in this new mode. There is that alliance event and almost 0 points, nobody is talking about it except “do you heard about this new mode?” “Nah thanks”

    Don’t know but I suppose that didn’t work out.
    This is such a pity since many of us thought it’s the next thing

    Don’t think I’ve even done two wins in a row since the match-up change. And have had streaks of 10 losses in a row. Started looking at roster improvements and look at YouTube’s of best defenders and attackers and find my roster for this mode just maybe won’t work for any more progression. Top ten defender and attacker lists I find I’ve got 1 or 2 of them and I’m up against matchups that have majority of them.

    Did someone say boosting works? Maybe I missed that trick - doesn’t seem like a mode that should be using boosting to me.

    Anyway I’m finding it impossible to even string 5 wins total in 2 days to even get that objective anymore.

    That matchmaking... They already had things lime that in aw, it worked terrible, they finally moved away from it. What made them believe it would work for bgs? By now this is just ridiculous

    The whole mode has become even worse. So many in my Alliance was looking forward to it. But we’ve been soured in it so much, we don’t even bother with friendlies.

    As it currently stands, all that development time has been wasted. Such a shame. I really hope it can be redeemed, but that just means lots more developer time being spent trying to fix this, rather than other areas of the game.
