    SC could implement something like that tournament standard in Clash Royale. Cap max TH in legends, CWL and ESL until the most active F2P had the chance to catch up. With the battle pass they probably don't depend that much on the gemmer's money so there is some hope this might come some day.

    I like this idea for tournament competitions.

    idk how difficult it would be for SC to implement such a method, but it should be something they heavily consider. especially if they want to stay competitive in this type of genre. it would just make sense.

    I don’t think this would be fair to those of us who have paid though for an advantage. Believe me, I do not have a lot of money, but I saved for a while knowing a big update was coming this year and recently bought a couple chests of gems ( which is the 14,000 gem pack ). And if I wasn’t able to use that advantage when the update drops, I probably wouldn’t pay anymore. What I paid certainly won’t be enough to max out the entire update, but it should give me a good head start

    Don't you want fair wars though? I've spent (way too much) money on gems and the battle pass but never to have an advantage over F2P. I wanted to try new troops early and I wanted to have those decorations like the stone dragon statue and hero skins.

    I was only saying it is pay to win if there are contests in the first few months which allow TH13 to enter.

    Anything else, it is indeed just a matter of time.

    But those who do not seriously gem their TH13 will not be in a position to enter any such contests.

    No, that isn't the difference at all.

    The difference is that all contestst there have been to date have been onies where F2P players had a reasonable chance of being able to enter competitively.

    For a few months after TH13 drops, IF there are contests open to TH13, that will not be the case.

    I look at it as I’m happy the big spenders have reason to spend money and it should help them in the next couple CWLs to encourage them to do it. That money is what keeps this game I love going. Spend away and get some wins, you deserve it.

    Contact SC here. Click here to see how trophies are calculated. Click here for answer on how cc troops deploy (hint, it depends) and more info here. How is war map placement of max halls determined you ask, check out threads like this one. Thank you SC for the new legends! I'd start it at 5500 and let farmers play 5000-5500, but overall it is a great improvement.

    Terminologies:
    F2P - players who spend nothing
    P2W (Pay-to-Win) - players gaining/acquiring items through actual money giving an upperhand to F2P (They got GM items with lots of additional stats cannot be acquired through loot).

    Can you Prove to me: Clash of Clans P2W?"

    1.What are the items "Big Spenders" can get that F2P cant (beside skin) ?

    2.Besides faster Upgrades, what are the benefit of a "Big Spender" that a F2P dont have?

    I know being "First" is an issue for others, but at the end of the day, it is who could "Last" that Top spot matters.

    For me I am just hoping there isn’t too much content to grind.... don’t give us 40 new hero levels at one shot.

    spread it out.
