Can you please address the unfairness of the groupings in Hardcore Boss.

Towards the end of day 2 yesterday a player on my list was languishing at the bottom with just 9,000,000 points on the board. With ten minutes to go he was suddenly on my heels (I'd scored over 200 million at that point) and a couple of minutes after he had a lead of 160 million, finishing with around 376 million.

It's pretty obvious he was using high scoring kingpin hits to leave everybody on the list eating his dust. Just ten or so hits rendering the other four's days work worthless.

To be clear, I have no objection to battling with other players for the rankings so long as we're all on a level playing field. That's part of the fun of the event. But dumping regular players in with one or two massive spenders just leaves me thinking what's the point, really. I thought the idea would be to encourage players to do events; how this achieves that is a mystery.

Moving to my second account; somehow I managed to win all of days 1-3. Day one was a walkover with only one other taking part, but days 2 and 3 were fun battling with the others - last minute to & fro sniping to win on day two!

So how am I rewarded for this success on day 4? By being dumped in a group with four spenders apparently. The weakest, after six hours, has 191 million on the board; the top guy a massive 1.45 billion points! Gee, thanks Deca.

Happens to me every time too. Unfortunately I'm not sure if it can be fixed easily. Deca will probably come up with some "coding excuse"

HCB Day 4 is always literally pointless for me... I know I'm placing 5th.

Hmmm, matchups are wonky, now there's a shocker, NOT.
Add me to the list...

It finishes at 5am my time. I have no chance.

Dump it and replace it with the Epic boss. We don’t need that at the same time as H&R
