It seems that the only thing that matters is TOWER level (and boosts/riders). Ignore stats and base level. I’m sure hacks and cheats exist, but this seems too common to be hacking. I’ve seen obsidian divine dragons dropped by level 150 bases…maybe it’s hacking, maybe it’s just one player having a faster internet connection and getting an unfair advantage. I’m also curious about this if other have more insight.
Honestly, I think the whole defense dynamic is flawed. It makes the game slow and glitchy, and seems to cause nothing but problems.
I’m sure I’m in the minority, but I would MUCH rather simply have a “Defense Plan” for my base that allows me to mark which towers get SS during an attack…then let the computer defend and follow said plan. If EVERYBODY did this, and defense flames were done away with, the game would have far fewer issues. I understand that this would cause the problem of war ending in tie…but maybe just allow the first team to 250 flames to take the W?
