I have played the weekly tournaments from first starting my game a year ago. Now in chapter 9 the tournament fights even using manual fighting have become impossibly difficult. I have seen this mentioned many times, but because I play the game and take all the squad size upgrades to stay in line with the province fights in the yellow or orange zone, I am now priced and forced out of the weekly tournaments due to troops required to fight and the huge increase in difficulty and goods at a huge amount required to negotiate. I am not impressed at all, and in my opinion the tournaments are for chapter 4-8 players only at present. Half my game is played for the fun of the tournaments, so WHY INNO is it now impossible after being able to manually fight them for months? Tournaments in my opinion need urgently reassessing in how they increase in difficulty and it should NOT be linked to squad size.
