That could be easily tested, at least the guild statue thing.
Simply quit the guild, see if pvp rewards change, rejoin the guild, see if something change.
If not, than the issue is not there.
What happens if you try pvping a while with a weaker team (regarding the power), while having same statue levels?
Any difference in the points/trophy?
Do monday’s first pvp points change from before statues finished to after finished? If it’s depending on the statues, early after reset on mondays, before people start dropping gold, you should have same point range as me (as there’s no really huge stat difference because of levels alone between 1000 and 1400).
Something that is also striking is that, if it would be done on purpose, it should affect the 1 and 2 trophy matches too.
Unless there’s 2 or 3 different software systems coded simultaneously and in paralel behind the scenes (one for 1&2 trophy matches, and another for 3 trophy matches)…
Do same level range players, from same guild, that started at different times, get same point ranges? Like 2 level 14xx player from same guild, one started 3 years ago, another started 2 years ago, do they get same range per 3 trophy match?
