Are you doing the 20+ attacks/day required to get UC on Erk?
If not, medal dumpers or not, you aren't making UC....and nor should you.
Theres as many, if not more, legit bases on the leaderboard.....so clearly playing hard and fair can and does pay off.
I see comparable attack wins across the top 10 which says everyone is playing roughly the same amount. Medal dumpers would be seeing easier opponents, but everyone is attacking about the same so seems OK to me.
I'm just under 3% with 35 wins on Erk. Not once have I thought I'm struggling because of "cheaters" or any other reason....I know I haven't played enough.
Spot on Strawman, if you want uc on Er'kit. then you've got to put the hours In, more so with this current conflict as all the Rebels at prestige want to max Ithorians at prestige level. I need 30 Frags to max it myself but I'm happy doing the event instead. I'm level 9 Anyway so will be a while before I'm prestige to put the prestige Ithorians to use. but as you quite rightly pointed out, put the hours In and you'll get rewarded.strawman3125 wrote:I am not seeing what you are talking about... the top 3 on Erkit are maxed out bases with over 100,000 medals, ie not sandbagged or medal dumped, the next one down is medal dumped, the next one down has something like 40,000, so possibly lightly medal dumped and possibly medal gated. The next one down has 100,000+ and I stopped looking there.
Either way, the top 3 look like legit players that are putting in more hours than other players are willing to put in. It looks like they are crushing those 1000 gear dev bases at a really good pace. If you are a rebel player, then all you need to do is put in the time and crush out those dev bases. (8+ hours per day I am guessing) I have not checked this conflict but usually my Imperial base does not see any dev bases on Erkit and so it has ZERO chance of getting UC on that planet. (I won’t even bother trying!) Which leads us to the actual problem of the game:
Defence is way to over powered compared to attack! A regular player (not at the top 1% of skill level and not maxed out frags) cannot get 99% 3 star wins attacking player bases AND you NEED to get 99% 3 star wins to get UC because the other average players can do that against dev bases. Either dev bases need to be as hard to beat as player bases (turn armoury skins on) or player bases need to be as easy to beat as dev bases so that all players face equal opponents and difficulty. And limit Attacks to the same HQ level.
Right now medal dumping and sand bagging is meaningless. Even if you have maxed out base score and maxed out medals you can crush out 1000 gear wins every 7 minutes against dev bases. All you have to do is be willing to put in the time.
(If you are the faction that does not get dev bases on the planet in question, like Imperials on Erkit, then there is NO HOPE.)
Back to grinding dev bases.

There are a lot of people above me who are in that position due to easy matches because of sandbagging or medal dumping. My battles are legitimate matches based on my strength, others are getting easy matches by manipulating the game.

I've got your point the last 5 times you brought it up in other threads. You are in denial about the different ways ppl play the game and their goals.
