    So ... you are just giving the gold spenders more gold. Lame.
    The top global people had over 10,000 points in less than 5 minutes after the event started.
    This is not an improvement, nor anything to get excited about.

    I'm glad it isn't just me who feels this way. I'm sure it's nice for some people, but when I can't even win a "local" leaderboard anymore, there's no way I can even begin to compete globally. I wonder how many participants there are globally.

    If I understand correctly, the local boards are now matched up so that we are with people who play like us? So that means if I do not spend a lot of gold, I will be placed with other people who also do not spend a lot of gold, and then the gold buyers can fight it out on the global board?

    I wish i was in the same group as the player who ranked #1 globally. In less than 5 days i would have had the 7.2k points needed.

    I have a feeling the same names will be on the global board for every LB.

    The thing that bugs me is the players have been upset about the way LBs are, and how World Events have become, "pay to win," instead of being something fun with prizes for every level of player. The event polls and the comments are pretty darn clear about that. This global thing just pushes the very unpopular "pay to win" concept even further. It's nothing but another attempted money grab for S8. The people who will top the global boards and win the gold prizes either have a ton of GPDs, piles of gold from past *****s, or already spend a huge amount of money on the game. I highly doubt regular players are going to suddenly become big spenders just to get on the global board. If they didn't for regular LBs, why would they for global ones? The whole thing is pointless, from both ends. It's hard to believe that this game can actually fall further. I thought they had finally reached the bottom of bad, tone deaf decisions with the new expansion area. Guess not.

    I don't believe so, i usually wait till the last 15 minutes to boost and 2 players on the group that i am have already boosted.

    Count me in as another who feels the same way. And this is the 2nd time Red Rose and the 3rd time Cursed Rose have been "milestones" in Leaderboards - not cool at all. Why not bring back dragons released in the earlier times of the game instead of dragons recently released? Thankfully I'm not interested in the Pink Rose dragon one bit like most of these flower dragons so I can concentrate on leveling my Neo Valiant to level 15 and building my food supplies.
    Yes, the Global Leaderboard is L-A-M-E. I know y'all could do better.
