I agree with you Quantum. Presently I don’t remember the last time in my previous account I have got trouble to gain 700k or 1 Million for a raid. Since the new trophy system or a another change I don’t know. My progression suffer like never before. I was stuck at 1300 trophy for month. by luck I was able to up at 1400. since few weeks at 1500 and now by really luck 1600. With the horrible new system if you fail you lose -30 or -40. So you must restart again you hard work
Now the problem is worst. The matchmaking give me opponent of 12,20,30 trophy who are 10 times more hard and impossible to beat because the game suppose I am too much strong for the trophy I am. Really stupid I cannot beat them or really hard and for maximum for 20k or 50k. Since month I farm opponent at 30k or 50k gold. The game is not able to give me opponent at 500k or more. I must reach 1,700+ because I am level 80 but I start to have lack of power. My troops still at level 8. So low. I am not able to gain 5 Millions and more.
So my defense lack of power nothing to defend well and my power in offense lack because I am not able to upgrade anything.
If Flare can reverse the stupid change system they have make since 3.8.0 or around. I preferred the older one. Where you was able to fight bigger one for 500k and more and same if you fail you was able to gain at 50% 350k and more plus alliance gold bonuses like 600k+. You losing maybe -12 trophy but at least after 10 battles you was able to gain 6 Millions and more. Activate the free shield and 3 hours later do a another 3 or 4 millions to upgrade stuffs
Now with the new system its a pain to try to do something. I just cannot. Maybe was a mistake to forge all my stuffs like crazy. Now I am penalized and boned really hard. On my Ipad I don’t have forge nothing and get opponent of 300k,400k and 700k and gains 1.2 Million per fight.
Probably Flare ask why they lose players week after week. You have the answer. RR2 is no more playable. Is unplayable right now since the new system. They have destroy the only thing who worked great
Here in short word a little recap of old system vs new system. Why RR2 is broken and unplayable
1.Allow us to fight bigger opponent at +800 or 1000 trophy for 700k and 800k gold. same If you failed at 40 or 50% you was able to gain 400k plus your gold boost and alliance boost over 1 Millions. So fight 3 times the same player for 3 or 4 Millions was super easy.
2.When you failed you losing max -12 or -15 trophy. So regain what you have lost was super easy after
3.You was not stuck to upgrade stuffs
4.The gold rewards was not based on your forge and strength. So whatever you doing in the game you had always opponent at 500k and more
New system cap
1.Don’t allow us now to fight bigger one. Stuck to fight the horrible matchmaking opponent who give nothing
2.When you fail now is horrible at -24,-30 and -40 trophy. So lose twice or triple in a row. Drop your mood and morale to stop playing it
3.You are now stuck because nothing work
4.the gold rewards is now based on your forge and power. So if the system determinate your are supposedly OP for the trophy range. They give you opponent 5 times or 10 times more hard at 21 or 34 trophy to try to up. Result you fail even worst and be stuck forever there
So I try really hard to find a solution. No the drop trophy trick like before and lose 200-300 trophy don’t work anymore. Its worst if you try at 10k gold opponent
a little advice for the new player who read this. Trust me don’t forge your stuffs or you are doom to be stuck in the game or you need to join and forced to join a alliance level 60+ with really strong boost to abuse of elite boost to able to beat hard opponent
If they wanted to kill solo players. Flare you did it congratulations. Solo play is no more possible or its really really hard now if you try at level 80+
