    • Accounts with more advanced attributes, including more advanced gear, buildings, boosts, research, traps, monsters, troops, hero or other units, are likely to be able to compete for control of the  Super Wonder more effectively, as will account holders with more experience and skill.  Selection of type of unit, including gear, boost, research, etc. and other game elements can affect likelihood of successfully controlling the Super Wonder.
    • Some entrants may choose to spend money to purchase more advanced gear, buildings, boosts, research traps, and/or any other units or attributes.  Any such purchases are entirely voluntary and are not a pre-requisite to entering or winning the Competition.
