Gears Pop uses cogs to measure MMR (Match Making Ranking)

You are matched with someone with similar numbers of cogs for your fights.

If you win you gain cogs and if you lose you lose cogs. This is usually plus or minus between 0 to 35 cogs.

ABANDONED games cause issues however. Whether someone is disconnected or rage quits the game seems to attribute a loss to both people. But this only impacts the player on their next game. If you win your next game you can be awarded no cogs and if you lose you can lose up to 70-80 cogs. As the game is balancing out the loss it attributed to the disconnect.

Each arena/league unlocks at an amount of cogs.

Arena 1 - 0 cogs
Arena 2 - 300 cogs
Arena 3 - 600 cogs
Arena 4 - 900 cogs
Arena 5 - 1200 cogs
Arena 6 - 1600 cogs (introduced season 2)
Bronze - 2000 cogs
Silver - 2400 cogs
Gold - 2800 cogs (The Magic Number!)

Gears Pop has seasons which will reset everyone's cogs to 1999 cogs when the season is over.

Season 1 will finish and reset on the 30th September 2019.
Season 2 introduced a 6th arena and pushed all the leagues up by 400 points (as well as the reset point). It ends 31st October 2019.

If you are below 1999 cogs at the reset you will be unaffected. Everyone in a league will find themselves back to 1999 and fighting to get back up to Gold.

If you are striving for 2800 cogs to achieve Gold League for this achievement you will need to pay attention to when the reset is so you do not find yourself so close but so far!

Strategies:

1. Pay to win - I have not put a penny into the game so I do not know how expensive this is. There are plenty of threads to look at if you want to investigate. But clearly having very high unit levels makes it easier (at least initially)

2. The Daily Grind and trying not to get annoyed by losing

2a - Check the store every day.

You can buy pins for in game coins. 200 coins nets you 50 bronze pins (2 of these per day). 800 coins nets you 10 silver pins. 4000 coins nets you 4 gold pins. (More options unlock at player level 10 and 15). The pins each day seem to be random. So some days you might not want any of them, but I think it is wise to throw 400 coins on the 100 bronze pins if you have one eye on your player rank which is increased by levelling up pins.

Royal SnowWolf says the store is:
Slot 1) 50 Common for 200 Silver
Slot 2) 50 Common for 200 Silver
Slot 3) 10 Rare for 800 Silver
Slot 4) 10 Rare for 800 Silver
Slot 5) 4 Epic for 4000 Silver
Slot 6) opens at level 15

2b - Complete your daily bounties

There will be 3 daily bounties every day. They are simple to complete and will net you 50 coins and 10 crystals each. The crystals are important as they can be exchanged for chests or money. It is a long grind but will help. e.g. 2250 crystals (75 days of daily challenges) is a Legendary Chest. It is worth noting buying money using this method still adds to the War Chest achievement. 4500 crystals (150 days of daily challenges) gets you 1.25 million coins - and their is an achievement for 2 million.

2c - Win Streaks

You can get one win streak crate every 4 hours. So you could log in first thing in the morning, at lunch time, at dinner time and just before bed for 4 crates every day. Purposely losing multiple games in a row to reduce your MMR increases the possibility of a better winning streak. A 5 win streak gets a gold chest.

2d - Pay attention to your loot crate slots

You can only have 4 loot crate slots at any one time. Each crate has a cool down before you can open it. Between 4 and 12 hours in my experience. If these slots are full, winning is not pushing your pins and money up. You can open them early using crystals, but this will slow your grind to item 2b above. But it is entirely up to you. I have had it suggested to me that initially all crystals should be spent on opening these early and playing often.

2e - Find an active Crew

Playing Horde is far more enjoyable (in my opinion) and rewards you with coins and pins. Which in turn help you level up. Horde Thumpers can always be found in any win streak of 2 or more and gold chests that you get from wins.

2f - Read up on the forums the many strategies to win

This game actually has some very good strategy in it. Unfortunately it can be negated by pay to win mechanics. Understanding what your opponent is trying to do can help you counter it and win.

Finally...

I am not going to lie and say this is easy. In fact the opposite, this seems quite unfair and hard at times. I have played the game daily from launch and at this time (12 days from season 1 reset) I am on 1885 cogs. It does not seem likely I will make it to Gold and occasionally I am tempted to spend some money to try and go for it. But I will not, because I personally do not want to promote the pay to win mechanic. That does not mean I think people who do it are wrong. Everyone is entitled to spend money on what they want to.

I would suggest you get used to losing as every now and then you will hit a wall. When I got to Arena 3, 4 and Bronze league I just bounced between promotion and relegation for a few days before pushing onward again. My overall win rate is probably no better than 50%.

Good Luck and thanks to everyone who commented on this solution. I would list you, but there is quite a lot at this point.

Это игра полная хуйня, рандомное гавно, которое от тебя не зависит. Каждый раз запускаешь и молишься всем богам, чтобы зарабать хоть крупицу того что необходимо. Но все своидится к тому, что выигрываешь тем, кто ниже по рейтингу, а проигрываешь всем подряд. Причем задонатив ты не будешь уверен, что начнешь выигрывать. Так как сам донат зависит от бога случая. Убогая система рейтинга, которая каждый месяц сбрасывается. Легкий способ получить проклятье - стать разработчиком, так как уверен, что проклятье сыпятся на сотрудником компании каждую минуту
