To stop the irritating effects of raids by lower ranked players, there should be some mechanism to keep them in check.
How about having ability in a raid to destroy the throne room if time permits? After a throne room is destroyed it takes a minute to restore all the buildings back to normal. This will make a player to think twice before continuously targeting some players.
Maybe it will not happen, as FG will have to rewrite many codes, but a point to consider and a new discussion topic.
Although, our request to destroy the remaining towers even when the castle gate falls and there is remaining time has gone unheard.
