Do you think that playing against higher level opponents in Champions League is fair? Tell us your oppinion about this!
Nobody likes to play against opponents who are +1 level but sometimes there’s no alternative so it has to happen but the question is: how fair is when the game is forcing you to play against higher level just because you managed to get a strong team.
This is something that I really don’t like and I have some good arguments, at least from my point of view.
There are more and more cases when the managers are forced to play against +1 level teams in Champions League just because Top Eleven decided this and is clearly not something randomly or rare.
I guess everyone who ends with 6,7 or 8 stars can confirm this but just as I said, this is not fair at all.
To put this in a better context is just as sending a team from league two to play against a team from league one in Champions League, the chances won’t be fair at all.
I was reading the Champions League rules from in-game and from the support page and I found something very interesting:
It is possible that the MANAGER levels between teams in the Champions League may be different, but this has no effect on the overall chances of winning. Additionally the CLUB Level of the competitors may not be the same in the Champions League competition since the mixing of teams depends on how many teams are available for each level in every server. It does also heavily depend on the performance they have shown in recent matches and the previous Champions League (if they qualified). Thus the current strength should be on a par between all managers in the Champions League.
Does this look OK for you? If yes, then let’s take a better look at this part from the first sentence:
but this has no effect on the overall chances of winning
This is not true at all and I also feel sorry to see this here because some time ago I helped on creating this and I can say that despite I took every sentence one by one I don’t remember to see this, maybe it was also my mistake not to report this or maybe it was introduced after, I have really no idea but to go back on the subject, I can prove very easy that this is affecting very much the overall chances.
- The highest level team can achieve +1 star comparing with the rest of the teams, assuming everyone goes at 9 stars. This is a huge disadvantage and clearly would affect the winning chances. How does this has no effect on the overall chances of winning?
- There’s a huge differences between the amount of tokens between the 2 different levels and when I say huge I am talking about hundred of tokens and it can even pass over a thousand of tokens. For example at level 11 you can get a squad with 11 tokens from Auction Market better then your opponent who bought a full squad from the scout list with over 700 tokens up to a thousand. How does this difference of over 700 tokens you must spend to get an equal quality or almost has no effect on the overall chances of winning?
I only gave two strong reasons and I don’t think I need to give more because you can see that there’s nothing fair.
There are also other advantages by having a higher level then your opponents, like better facilities, etc but what’s worst is that paying real cash or spending time on completing offers for boosters or tokens might do more harm for your team by getting better opponents or same as you.
I really also don’t like this system of playing against the same quality and here I am not talking about 3,4 opponents which is really cool and good because playing only vs 2,3 stars would be also very boring and nothing fun but I can give myself as example in this case when for example last season I made a big investment, around 600-700 tokens and 200-300 green packs, it worth it because I won the treble but I ended in a Champions League where I really don’t have any chance and all the investment I made to create a 6,7 stars was basically worthless because my opponents had 7,8 stars and to get on their quality I would had to use over a thousand of tokens with no guarantee of winning the Champions League.
So then I am asking again, what’s fair in this and how the chances are equal?
