More and more castles are starting to be held by teams that are abusing a game mechanic. If your team is to weak to actually hold a castle through activity and defense, you can hold a castle by coordinating takeovers with a friendly team. Here is the process that is being used after your castle gets bubbled
- Arrange a time where you will drop the shield and a friendly team will take it over.
- After they take the castle from you, take it back
- Purchase castleguards and have friendly team hit you til bubbled again
This results in a fresh bubble. Peace of mind knowing you don’t have to ever really defend the castle.
Others have advised me that this has been reported and no action was taken. I felt this should be put out here to be sure all are aware and this can be discussed. If in the end this is deemed acceptable behavior, everyone should be aware so that they can adjust their strategy of holding castles.
I’m pretty sure this is a behavior that should be addressed as it will result in a loss of revenue.
