I just entered the Old School arena. Note that this is domination mode so only best try counts. My maximum possible points is around 29k This would put me in 30th place max. The #1 spot has over 55k. Seriously? Top 5 are all over 53k. I realize the opponent pool is based on rng and you need to just keep using tickets til you get a winner but something is seriously wrong with the point determination.
Based on this total of 55k I can only assume that the top opponent probably is worth 12k+ or something (vs the average opponents that are worth 3-5k) My guess is this is because someone in my pool has an S14+ team (I know because I fought them in last arena) and this is the basis for their top score in Old School(?) Normal max team score should not determine max points for Old School arena.
Of course there is no information from Scopely on how these points are determined but total max team power in the regular arenas should NOT be used as a determining factor for Old School. It just doesn’t make any sense.
