Yes eSproo there should be more benefits for higher level players to easily climb up the rankings than a lower player, especially if they’re are in a clan that has a lot of boosts. Costs a lot of real money to keep those boosts going so the clan and individual players do well.
And actually if you look at top 10 now at least 3 if not 4 players are only in the mid 30s levels. I didn’t notice them there earlier.
And it can’t be that tough to beat bases or not lose cups because I’m still not winning cups on defence. Neither do I lose on attack, but the bases do seem a lot tougher than a few days ago.
I do think that there should be an option to switch the current opponent on an island because yes lots of player aren’t worth attacking. Maybe give that person 5 cups to cycle in a new player, not sure what’s a fair costs though (cups, gems or gold).
And the way the current match making system is, all the cups filter back to the lower level players, as it’s almost impossible for players to ever get cups back from lower players as we never see them in our match ups. Unless for some reason their attack goes horribly wrong and they spit cups back up to a higher player, not likely it seems yet. That’s how I see it working anyway.
I’m level 61 or 62 and Wayward is really tough opponent, lucky the boosts were gone when I decided to attack him. Photos below only a few hour apart and taken this morning. Pretty sure his clan has the boosts going 24/7
