How is the sliding difficulty determined?
My difficulty has increased mid event the last couple gauntlets. It’s frustrating to try to raise your superstars to get to level 17 for the reward and then get punished by the difficulty sliding even harder.
Everytime I try to level up superstars to get to later levels the difficulty goes up.
It seems the more you progress, the harder it gets and the more disadvantage u have in the roster battle.
There is some luck of the draw involved (e.g. landing an unbalanced opponent with 200-300 level cards and one 600 level gold or whatever) that can create problems for landing a perfect round, of course. Not an easy balance, and I'm sure they're trying to calibrate the game to keep it fun but also encouraging spending. And that last part is important, as if the paying players go away, likely so will the game.
Also one thing I’d like to add is to keep a superstar in gauntlet always. My club is usually at the top of gauntlet due to us grinding for a superstar. But yesterday we actually sat out and didn’t play much at all due to the lack of something to grind for. I’d love to see a superstar up there all the time, even on days when the club event isn’t Gauntlet.
