I’m exposing this wide open to all clans, so everyone is aware. And hoping it will be quickly fixed.
The last couple of battles was close, but we were always ahead, maintaining our lead through constant 2% attacks. Towards the end, all of a sudden, opponent clan started gaining skulls in chunks. In the first case, one of our members happened to notice it was preceded by a drop of about 2k skulls, which we think is 1 player dropping out. The second case, none of us was watching closely, so no idea.
So we did some experiments to try to figure out how this is possible. Here’s how you do it…
Drop 1 player. Yes, that player’s skulls will be lost, around 2k.
Invite a willing volunteer from another clan that will benefit from you winning.
When that new person is attacking halfway, kick him.
You will notice that his skulls remain and counted, even though he’s been kicked.
Invite other volunteers and repeat. Each time gives you 500 skulls, equivalent to 50 2% attacks.
When you have no more volunteers, invite your original clan member back. He can now execute his 3 best attacks and regain the earlier lost 2k.
Since there’s no way to prove this 100%, our opponent clan names are intentionally omitted. But it works. And we’re not using this trick, losing is better than winning through cheating.
Note to Flare: Please fix this asap. A lot of gems and scrolls and time were used and wasted.
