The Saving Trophies Debate

mikesmikes Member Posts: 2,074 ✭✭✭✭✭
Ok, here is a topic mentioned here and there but never discussed in a dedicated topic. Is there really, really an advantage to sacrifice events to save trophies? The argument is players will not enter/win event xxxxx to avoid boosting trophy counts. So to avoid having trophy count boosted to where they can't win event rewards, their purposely not winning event rewards. Isn't that the same thing?

The reasoning of keeping a trophy count low can be for major events, but that doesn't overly work as all major prize car events seem to be a free for all not based on trophy count or RQ. Now some one-off high reward events (like major gold/cash) may depend on trophy count, but is it worth not playing the game, all for a chance to win a major event every 3 months or so?

Maybe there is part of this I'm missing.

    I guess it makes farming easier as one could crush their opponents for three star wins, then purposely losing to avoid leveling up. It can be a Grinders Dream.

    I ve thought about this subject too, i do enter every event, but i deliberately work towards tier 5 so to not gain trophies points,  or even loose some points.
    But is it worth it? I don t know any more...

    it indeed helps in The Grind, loose the first 10 races and only then race with your best team to get 3 star win after 3 star win, but you get bored rapidly...
    (And dont forget the daily plastic!)

    it would def help if there was an incentive to get to a high trophy count, because at the moment there is none, while there might be a disadvantage (but unsure)
    For the moment i play on the safe side and try to stay below 6k

    some clarification from Hutch on this topic would def help!

    I think it’s a combination of that and events not being that interesting all of the time. Why enter or try and level
    up cars for an event where you have a VERY SMALL chance at a CF or an ok chance at ceramic if you already have a good hand. 

    Its a waste of precious resources that I won’t get back anything close to what I put in. Sure there’s a *chance* I might get a bugatti from a ceramic but I’d rather save my coins and gold for a bigger event with better rewards, which frustratingly only occurs what seems like once every three weeks... And it’s not fun to enter these events only to farm 1 star from people with better hands.

    I thought about this, but after about a week I got bored of not trying and just started to compete again. 

    In my opinion it's not worth it. We play to win amd collect cars. U won't do that by not entering. U can always smarf an event amd stay relatively level.

    I have jumped from 2500 to 4700 trophies since the trophy update, and I don't regret it. I am reasonably confident that when the players are separated properly then Hutch will reevaluate the tiers and adjust to make the game playeable for higher trophy players.

    Looks like a lot of players have lost interest waiting for them to make those adjustments tho

    I only try to compete in events where I have chances to win. In all the others I smurf to make cash and built up my garage. 
    I just won the event "Super Rare: Dead Heat", and I'm happy with that.

    It's true, after sometimes is getting boring waiting for the "right" event, but if you want to remain f2p you have no other choice, and still you need some lucky pull (I have no legendaries but the 12C for example, after 8 months playing...) ...
    Raise trophies to high level will not go in parallel with levelling up your garage, so you will soon get stuck with no chance to even get tier2 on events.
