I asked this somewhere else but will ask again here. Aside from gems, are we striving to be in the top #25 for any other reason than the rank, or are the rewards better for lower ranks?
It’s for the gems and the speed. If you get 500 gems, that can buy about 10-15 free plays. Also, if you’re ranked lower, that means your teams gets the daily rewards sooner because they’re completing perks faster. For instance, my club completes all perks in 2 days, so for the rest of the week we get those daily login bonuses each day.
