Our matchmaking will always aim to find someone with similar Total Trophies, to give every player a fair chance at winning. Trophies are awarded to each Clone that contributes to a victory.
When a player looks for a Brawl, they will be matched with someone that has a similar amount of Total Trophies, as we feel those reflect the overall skill of a specific player.
Total Trophies also have a small impact on the Trophy gains/losses: if you have many more than your opponent, you will win a little less/lose a little more than the base values listed above.
Also you can get additional bonus Trophies if some of your Clones in your Party/deck are green; +4 from each, up to +12. Bonus Trophies are applied when you win or lose a Brawl.
