I don´t know if you understand me. I think you don´t answer to my 4 question.(mainly in number 1)
I write and you only confirmed me that duel is only fight between weaker and stronger , and one of pair win 3 torches. But it isn´t war a interesting, more motivated if both teams can win some torches and have a chance a win or surprise the opponent aliance??? I don´t know if you in next duel find for everybody a rival (extra equivalent), and I think it is more complicated, and will be difficult and laboriuos, hard.
By the way, now we win (what will please) and we have thankfully eventually equivalent opponent, maybe in next duel (if will be) we will be a waeker. But torches are not all in game.
But already (by now) we had so strong rival, which is now in 2 or 3 league above as (players more stronger, with mooore points, and number of players in aliance was twice so in our aliance ) .Yes, therefore I think divide the aliances into league is good idea.
I only share my opinion, that duel does not make sense, and in many cases is sterile,unadventurous, stodgy and that campaign is much better ?
You should thinking about cancellation of duel .
