I woke up today to -71 trophies. That’s not the biggest deal by itself, but at three trophies per win there is no way I could recoup my losses in one day. I don’t see how it is sustainable to lose more trophies in a day than you can win. I am pretty active in this game most days but after losing that bunch I decided to wait and see what my board looked like at the end of today without attacking any hostile islands. Now I have quite a few hostile islands (none of which are worth more than three trophies) and if I cleared them all, it still puts me at -32 for the day (original -71 + -12 from addition losses throughout the day). Something needs to be done about this. We shouldn’t be able to slack off if we are highly ranked, but it needs to be possible to maintain the position that we work up to.
I suggest preventing “farming,” where you make it to a high value trophy players gate, hit it once and die or retreat, allowing you to gain 2/3 of the trophies haul while the person attacked loses 3x that much. *not sure about the exact numbers there, but you get my point. Additionally/alternatively, offer higher trophy gain to loss ratios to balance this out.
At the minimum, please do something about the farming. I’m top 100 and have never done this. It’s unsporting and kind of weak.
