I am writing this so that the complaining will stop! Deal with it First place and second place on all the competitions belong to Theo and Elax. I dont blame them for exploiting the system they have earned it by being the first two guys on trophies, I do blame them for spoiling the game to all the rest of the players, killing competition for the first and the second place (I bet if u tried it fair u would not manage even half of it without pearling ur way out or staying 24/7 playing).
So here is the new leader board for every two weeks
1st place - Reserved to Theo/Elax
2nd place - Reserverd to Theo/Elax
So the above dont count anymore as per my opinion.
And the real leader board
1st place - 800 pearls -> still under discussion since there is not only theo and elax doing this, others are trying but more difficult if ur not 1st and 2nd in trophies.
2nd place - 700 pearls
3rd place - 600 pearls
4th place - 500 perls
5th place - 400 pearls
6th place - 300 pearls
7th place - 200 pearls
8th place - 100 pearls
This applies to Gold Stolen/Sheep Stolen mostly, but it impacts other areas as well since stuff is interconnected.
I have been playing this game long enough, I know there is no perfect bug free environment that exists, at least consider putting a workaround on player selection algorithm or ban your two best players, ur not earning anything from them anymore anyway, while we farmers are farming gold these two are farming ur pearls... now either theo and elax are STS themselfs or STS are a bunch of developers who have no ****ing clue about business.
These are my five cents on the matter, please no hard feelings, personaly I dont aim those positions and I dont care about those pearls but I want to see some stuff regulated at least for the next version.
