OK I’m going to touch this sensitive subject because I’ve noticed quite a lot this past few weeks regarding trophy lvl of enemies on islands.
Basically I’m borderline top 100 and am lvl 130 (20k+trophies), so I don’t have a ridiculous trophy cap holding me back anymore, but yet It seems the top 75 almost never appear on my islands! Yet of course I get attacked daily by such players. (this isn’t the issue, but why a one way street.)
Basically you thought to make it easier for us by taking away high lvl trophy enemies from the islands, but instead put identical difficulty opponents in their place. In reality there is NO DIFFERENCE in difficulty between a lvl 131 titan league player with 19k trophies and a player with 25k trophies. The only difference is now they never appear on our islands.
So how do you find these elusive players of the top 50? I have no idea, I have thousands of battles over the past month or 2 yet never seen for example Dumpster ever. Seen the top guy once. The others I might see once every few weeks. The image below is not aimed at singling players out but just to show what I’m saying.
FG @Madlen they (the devs) said they it’s hard to tinker with the system as it’s finely balanced or something, yet last update you managed to mess with it and put easy opponents on the inner islands (which isn’t bad in itself - allows people to lvl up Artemis/Ajax with no fear of losing for example. Right now this distribution of high lvl trophy enemies is pathetic, IMO you just made them all invisible…at the end of the day if they are there to attack it is through choice if you decide to do so; many used gems to improve their trophy count also. (so there are corporate implications here - nobody will use gems on a +3 trophy enemy, who is as hard as a 30k trophy enemy)
To sum up just in case you missed it, that sever update was an still is an abomination…needs fixed. Ready the critics…
In addition I always seem to get the same players over and over and over again. I can find the same player 3 times in one day easily. Earlier today I cleared an island an 2 mins later the same guy appeared on another island. It’s like we have a small ‘pool’ of players that are in our group…sucks big time - for him mainly.
Edit- top guy just appeared on my islands for the 2nd time ever, perhaps you saw my post?
