No matter how many ally points you save up. There will always be someone with more. Even if you have a ton of ally points, you will get to a part where you have no chance at any of the remaining teams. There is a bug/exploit that is allowing mediocre teams to do extremely well in ranks. The way I look at it is the tournaments are either amazing for some players or horrendous to others. Mostly everything that comes out of tournaments can be game changers. I do not believe it is fair for most of us (who are very dedicated to this game), to have no chance in these tournaments no matter how long you prepare. Let the hate begin and Happy New Year!
