# Awards for arena victories and defeats (locked)

4 posts

 I would like to know more about how the allocation of points for victories and defeats in the arena works. I can see some patterns. It does seem that more points are awarded for beating someone with higher points, but this appears to be inconsistent. I just lost 11 points to a player with over 5b power. I have 2.7b. At the time, he was 1 or 2 ranks behind me in the arena. Usually, when players with more points than me are victorious, I lose about 3 points. How come it was so much more on this occasion? Can you explain the formula for this? addendum: The player in question is now several ranks above me, still with nearly twice my power, yet I'm losing 7 points to his attacks. Please explain the mechanics of this. Thanks. > *Originally posted by **[coseyhead](/forums/1062295/topics/1871495?page=1#13273974)**:* > I would like to know more about how the allocation of points for victories and defeats in the arena works.

It's quite difficult, but if you want to understand, look for information on the Internet > *Originally posted by **[coseyhead](/forums/1062295/topics/1871495?page=1#13273982)**:* > addendum: The player in question is now several ranks above me, still with nearly twice my power, yet I'm losing 7 points to his attacks.

I play this game everyday for multiple hours a day yet I can't get past 151B even though i use all top units. yet i see other people shoot right by me from B-T.
