Defensive dragons appear on defense from time to time, not too often. On bases it happenes it doesn’t mean at all that a player forged insenly his frosters or pyros, usually the layout of the base matters and wave combination + also what combo attacker uses. It doesn’t happen too often but it happens.
They obviously appear a lot more often in ninja event but let’s not compare ninja bases to our bases, we will never be able to set up such defenses.
Though, I don’t agree with you Maerique on some aspects:
"As is the Dragon just attacks your King who is usually well ahead of the troops, and the dragon doesn’t really have enough attack to hurt you much. "
If your king is way ahead of troops that most likely mean you raid some quite easy opponents comapred to your attack skills. Of course it depends on the combo you are raiding with and many other factors but it’s not like everyone at all levels raids rambo style and that dragons won’t hurt them at all. Dragons do hurt and usually they reach the army and wipe it out. I’ve been seeing defensive dragons on both ninja and normal bases and usually it means trouble.
“The reason is I want more moments in the game that are like… Oh… Damn… Help me!!! Instead of click, click, click win.”
Again, if raiding at your current trophy level is easy for you to “click, click, click and win” it doesn’t matter that it happens for everyone at higher levels and that your raiding skills suit the trophy range you are currently at. I would suggest climbing a bit in the leaderboard, facing some tougher bases and higher ninja tier. You can face defensive dragons there and then you can say if you want to see them stronger or that they are strong enough.
Also note, that even if you raid bases with froster/pyro boost and you expect dragons to pop out it won’t happen at various reasons. Firstly, those alliances you face with such boosts might have too low boost level to suddenly produce defensive dragons. Secondly, as I mentioned above, layout, waves and combo of the attacker matters a lot. Defensive dragons don’t appear too often but they are quite deadly when they appear.
Sorry to say this but you are missing a point in your thread, you say they are so rare to appear (which is true) but you also claim you want them stronger ?! How can you know if they they need to be stronger if you have zero or little experience with them.
Talking about ninja tiers, they for sure appear in tier +4500 (sometimes 3 at once), not sure about lower levels as I’ve never been there.
