My team is in second tier (we are level 60). Our opponents aren’t bad, level 62 twice and a level 71 team. Yes, the wars are tough, but we do our best to gain a score to receive the rewards and seem to manage that really well.
To be honest, second tier should not be for a team like us, we should reside in tier 3. To be honest, it’s the rewards that made us decide to take a risk, 50% more rewards is worth it. Say we make it twice in a row not to demote and gain the rewards, it would be a huge bonus for our team. We also realize that once we face a non friendly team, we could be wiped of the map, since we lack the resources to stand a fair chance.
Resources tell the story, our personal resources for donation are not high enough, our alliance resources are close to being depleted and we can’t refill them fast enough.
I personally think that even when our personal buildings would be able to donate max, it’s not enough to fulfill the demands.
I would expect, that personal resources should at least donate 25-50%% more. We should not be forced to donate a lot of times extra with gems to send extra resources, becuase the stronghold resources are depleted.
