I’ve seen so many recruitment threads where Platinum 2/3/4 teams have more castles than our team. A Plat 2/3/4 vs a D2 team, and the only difference being the tokens earned per day and the shard bonus. XP, Gold and troops training can all be maxed and brought to ABOVE what my team earns, and they don’t have the struggles of defending the higher level lands.
This is backwards. This is an incentive for higher level teams to take castles from lower level teams (no we haven’t done that) and flip them or keep them IMO.
Cap them at the same level as the forts. Make people have a firm stop on what they can buff up to, this will make them fight over bigger lands and actually get competitive
