As a person who never experienced any crashes during important raids, the first ever crash happened to me during last ninja event, so I am personally quite thankfull for additional 2 tries we got. It saved me wasting my time with support team and possibly allowed me to be able to get 1st spot. And I don’t care if others got 1st with 32 tries or not, or whether they used it on re-doing islands where they missed a tower which was kinda their mistake, not a disconnection.
Although, I have never tried top tier (probably if I had a choice I would but since it is trophy based there is no point in trying), I believe a top tier should be actually challenging. I don’t know if it is but if top players who are often participating there claim it is too easy, not challenging and boring it should be changed in my honest opinion.
At this point it looks like it is more challenging to farm trophies (and to get others to drop them on you) and probably staying online for a long time to prevent losing them rather than completing the top tier itself. Though I might me wrong here. I think other top players who often participate in top tier should give their opinion whether it is too easy and too boring, not only Cromka, and not those who once or twice tried that tier because for those it could be indeed challenging if they used to fight in lower tiers.
I kinda wish we could chose tier we want to participate in rather it being trophy based. Top tier should be challenging for any player imo. And we already have scroll/resurrection limit so not like big spenders that are not skilled will be able to win it thanks to gems.
