Before towers merge and transformation, I started to work on my base in my early 100s, focus on just five maxed towers and grind tokens to get the builder hut up and then overcome the obsidian wall and even delayed getting Noctua.
It got paid off and my base was killing many unsuspecting attackers
Then when mythic gears were released I worked on them and farmed at level 5 NML (remember those times?)
My base used to be the best for the level and it was fun.
But now every Tom, Dick, Harry, Karen and Susan can do merge and swaps. It’s even more hilarious when you see some bases in some teams have almost identical base set up.
So, my base has become from OP to average Joe.
Nevermind, I could still focus on my Primach. When Silver2 was released, I made sure I got my defensive primach levelled up faster than my enemies offensive primach and looked for weak loaded destroyer to trap and defend. But now with power swaps, everyone got their primach maxed and everyone is average Joe and Karen.
Everyone does the same attack, load3-4k on destroyer and snipe snipe snipe. Whoever spent and build a bigger base has more advantage. Because everyone has the same riders, mythic dragons, mythic gears and mythic runes.
I’ve been waiting to see changes in atlas, and then the shortened delayed at entry castle is pretty useless because every average Joe’s team has bot alert and you wasted a few mins of your life not getting your target.
I doubt the land reshuffle is going to happen anytime soon and all the promises and grand plans that PG made is gone with the wind
