It probably serves a purpose I’m unaware of but if gold is protected during war, why aren’t trophies?
It’d be fine if not for the fact that a change in your trophy rank ruins your long term plans (gold and ninja tiers) forcing you to drop hundreds of trophies for the next week (it’ll help for getting the ninja tier you want but it probably won’t fix your raid gold as that takes time to settle in), which is BORING AS ALL HELL, not to mention you shouldn’t need to do that in the first place.
Since this ties in with general raid gold issue, maybe war raids should yield a ton more gold (which you don’t lose when raided anyway so who cares how much it is) or some other commodity rather than trophies no one really wants anyway?
I dunno, someone enlighten me.
Edit: I forgot to mention that after you’ve gained those 500 new trophies after war (because you raid in wars to win and not to lose, as shocking as it may seem) your once pretty decent defense is now wide open to the new neighborhood you’ve moved into (as your new attackers are stronger than your previous ones, for some reason, hmm). So not only you can’t get gold from raids because you’ve moved up in the world causing the ridiculous gold-per-raid calculation system to re-evaluate things, but your base’s defenses are too weak for the kind of invaders among which you now find yourself (causing you to lose all incoming raids and lose whatever gold you may somehow get ahold of).
So yeah, thanks a lot.
