I will probably be the most hated person here after saying this but well. Here is my take.
The thing is majority of the people who are complaining about this were those who cannot be named that starts with "C".
The top clans are actually having fun competing with each other. even now after the score wipe majority of the top 5 clans in their respective category are still in the top 10.
DE did those bans because of the "C" outcry, Yet lets be real here. Those people who are complaining aren't even capable to duke it out on the Leader-boars even with a level playing field, So it should not affect them except for damaging their egos knowing they are kinda Meh.
There was a reason why DE made the trophy acquisition to "You can get Gold/Silver/Bronze for X amount of points" instead of "The statue will be awarded to the to top X amount of clans".
No one was loosing out here. You can get everything from the event by being a non competitive clan.
The Leaderboards was there for the dedicated and skilled players who has knowledge to fight it out. Yet they got punished for it, which is unfair. They did practice runs for days and spent 6 Hours on a mission to get there yet this is what they get? sure wipe their scores, but banning them from the event is a bit too much. A lot of people knew about the Loki teleport but why aren't they on the Leaderboards? punishing the people who were skilled to pull it off and had the dedication to finish the run 🤨..
