Flare has to do something about the manipulation of the Leaderboard positions
It’s a well known thing by everyone and has been in the game for as long as I can remember, but lately it seems to be worse than ever,
and at high rank it’s just a nightmare.
It’s not hard to notice accounts with the repetitive behavior of attacking the same base multiple times, but always staying on the same rank,
because they accumulate trophies but routinely “dump” them, often on a second base or an ally’s base, to elevate their rank or support them if they’re being attacked, and maintain a lower rank that allows that player to keep taking more trophies effectively.
My suggestion for this issue would be to only allow gain or loss of trophies on raids done through regular matchmaking.
Medals, gold, xp… would stay exactly the same, but trophies would be an exclusive thing to that type of raid.
Because having to find a specific enemy base 3 times to take their trophies, and after that also find the friendly base they want to dump those trophies 3 more times, all using random matchmaking system would be a big discouragement to such behavior.
And would also stop those very low rank accounts from doing this kind of thing, because the high rank bases they currently attack to take trophies 10 by 10 on each raid would not appear on their matchmaking.
I see no point on gaining trophies on raids out of regular matchmaking, other than just purposely lower or raise a specific player rank, which is unfair and an exploit.
