Levelling & Progression Guide

There are certain game mechanics that make it possible to have a big Power advantage over your opponents (and therefore higher win chance) during certain fame levels of your progression. This guide is centred around making the most efficient use of your cash, tokens, tickets and training plans and these ‘Power Levels’ to maximise your power output for tournament play and thus increase your winrate and reduce excess costs. Let me know explain a few ingame mechanics that you need to understand to make this work.

 

 

  • Tournament Matchmaking:

    • Tournament matchmaking is decided by your FAME LEVEL, not your power, not your league. You can be matched with teams within the same Fame level bracket within 1 – 9 levels. The lower your level the lower the range of the bracket(example lvl 15 will only have like a 1 -2 fame level difference, whereas at fame level 52 you will have a 9 level range, so you will be vs’ing lvl 60 endgame opponents). This means that the lower your fame, but the higher your power, the better chance you will have in tournaments. This guide will take advantage of this system.
  • How does this work?:

    • We know we need to keep our Fame Level low, and Power high to maximise our matchmaking potential to ensure we have stronger power than our opponents.
    • There are certain Fame levels during your progression that opens up access to multiple  gaming house upgrades (Talent Scout Room and Analytics room) that we can take advantage of to boost your power above that of your opponent. I call these ‘Power Levels’, and I base my entire Rivals progression around these.
    • Each of these power levels will generally give you 2 Talent scout room upgrades and 2 Analytics room upgrades for a total of 4 room uprardes AT the power level.
    • Talent Scout room gives access to higher rarity players (blue/purple/gold), but more important higher max potential players.
    • Analytics room increase the max tactic level. thus increasing your ingame effectiveness. (if you then train these to max level)
    • By doing these 4 upgrades AT the power level when they all unlock, we have access to higher potential and rarity players, and higher max tactics levels.
    • This can generate between a 70 – 80% power advantage over opponents the exact same fame level (your opponents in tournaments) who do NOT follow this.
  • What you need to do:

    • Stockpile all resources, cash, tokens, training plans until Power Levels. The power levels require large amounts of all of these
    • At power levels, do the necessary Gaming House Upgrades ASAP as specified below.
    • Limit Fame gaining once you reach a power level until all the power level tasks are complete
    • Once the Gaming house upgrades (as specified below) are complete. Buy a complete new team (5 players) and FULLY train them to their max potential (which is why you need to stockpile the training plans).
    • Fully max out your chosen tactics sets to your new max level
    • Hopefully all of this will happen while you are still at the power level.
    • Enter tournaments once all of this is done, and still lvl 22 / 23 and you will be at your max possible power for your tournament bracket. All of your opponents (unless they also follow this guide) will be much lower power than you, which will give you an edge to victory.
    • Stockpile again until the next power level.
    • There will be single gaming house upgrades to talent scout and analytics rooms between power levels. these must also be completed BEFORE reaching the next power level too.
    • The only training plans you SHOULD use as soon as you get them are TACTICS training plans. These are permanent and transfer across the teams, so you don’t lose anything by training these as you get them.
