Why lesser rewards for multiple battles? (in General)

I remember it making sense when I first thought about it, but now for the life of me I cannot understand why taking two battles to beat someone results in such crappy rewards for the win.

What is this trying to remedy?

Here is the effect I see it having: everyone is "playing it safe". Oops, that guy beats me once out of every ten, so I better take him off my fight list. Oops, so-and-so has a win streak of 1400, but I'm not going to be the one to stop it, because hey, I don't even get rewards for it! Oops, no use testing my recent upgrades against that one team I have been trying to beat until I KNOW I can beat them, because man, those rewards are just too terrible.

Most folks are clanned up these days, so using two battles to beat someone ALREADY had three inherent downsides to it: canceling out the clan points won, giving rewards to your opponent (on the loss), and using that extra BA.

Ice Cold Cylo is getting tough, and I just noticed when I use two battles, the second battle (win) gives me $6 and 4 experience per minion. Come on, what is the point of that? I got more rewards from the loss! So, I am better off not finishing my opponent off? Where's the carnage?

the lower rewards in multiple battles are there because in the first battle say you kill 2 minions on a 4 minion team, and then his last 2 minions kill you, then in the second battle you are only fighting the surviving minions with a fully healed team, so in essence, the better you do in the first battle, the worse your rewards in the second one

Does the reduced rewards have also to do with Ice Cold Cylo being smaller than you? When I beat steve or ranger in two battles, i get well over $300 and 150XP, and my score shoots up.

Slayer, I understand the concept of why rewards would be smaller, but that has never been the reason before. For example, if I am facing an all-archer team and he happens to be out of arrows, I don't get lesser rewards because the win was "easy".

Fav, really? Looks like I better do more research. Cylo is not very THAT much smaller than me. Many times his score is higher...though I guess my tattoo really makes a big difference in our total PRs. I will try double battles against someone my size or larger and see what happens. Thanks!

Favorites, you are completely correct. I fought The First and got very nice rewards on the second battle. His PR is slightly larger than mine.

I guess taking two battles for anyone smaller results in harsh rewards reduction. I'm OK with that.
