Not sure if I'm right but I thought I read somewhere in an interview or something possibly a manga chapter that once you get to the New World bounties to gauge strength starts to become less purposeful because everyone that has survived in the New World are pretty much badasses.

Those who stand at the top determine what's wrong and what's right! This very place is neutral ground! Justice will prevail, you say? But of course it will! Whoever wins this war becomes justice!”
