Obviously you have forgotten that Crit has changed drastically since then. That was over a year ago. Back then 100crit did not mean 100% crit. Especially in pvp. It was almost unheard of to get critted in pvp. But I see you don't remember.
Naw I wouldn't say easy, but they got tournys every day so easier to win. I think it's "easier" than TW cuz a lot of players arent knowledgeable. And English community is small and not united so many don't have great gear cuz no spamming tmqs/ud/ect. Even most Chinese aren't that great. The ones that are good, are really good. Like +15 everything. But most players in HK are average imo. Not bad, but not great. And kid tourny is pretty balanced, so u can win with any class id say. Just need luck and strategy. (on top of gear of course)
