Way to many low level castles in Crows & FC's.

Firstly economics, why would players want to spend out on rubies for an event so stacked up against them, with such a stupidly high certainty of receiving low level castles throughout the event. It would be pointless to purchase boosters, troops and flags only to waste them trying to improve the castle numbers using high level flags, to get a good glory score. Yet GGE still push popups out with the same stuff, yes a lot of  players buy them, and always will, and also a lot just get annoyed as their laptops and desktops freeze and crash. At least make the offers last longer, so we don't get so many popups.
On the question of offers, It seems to me that throughout the entirety of the crows event and Berimond event, all offers have been centred around the crows, I haven't seen 1 offer for tools, boosters, troops, combined with a ruby offer at all for Berimond. Bad marketing strategy again GGE.
I notice now as well, a lot of players in the Kingdom League event not bothering on events such as crows and fc's, as many scores by high level players are totally out of reach, and of course not wishing to upset anyone by saying they are getting them by using rubies, I will go for the option element of luck, and they are getting more larger castles than the rest of us. Whichever it is, it makes the kingdom league event, and event controlled by either, how much you spend, or how lucky you are with GGE. They said it was a grind event, and oh how they were right, so much so its becoming a repetitive bore, that many have given up on.

    Because they are good players.  Lets say ones from 1-1000 give 10k glory a hit.  700 hits for 7M glory.  But not all of those are going to be 1-1000.  I saw someone in my alliance get a 6k, and promptly get 600k glory out of it. I have seen people get over one mil in a hit. I have gotten 400k in a hit before.  So more like 500 attacks MAX I'd say. If that.  I normally get 700k in ~30 hits.  That means 300 hits for 7M. 

    My math may be off in all of that, I'm going fast.  Feel free to correct.

    Bcz is gge, and you already see that they changed how we get attacked by Fl/Bc's.
    So we can expect them to do the same with npcs...

  • Today, I launched an attack on a fl, based my spy which said all the troops were on the front. After the battle, I checked the battle report and all the defence troops had been moved to a flank, causing me to lose a significant amount of troops.

    Is Fls changing defence setups a thing?

    Yes, they can change and update their own defences. 
    They can also receive support, open gates and decrease their troops numbers. 

    However, the chances for any of these scenarios to occur are very low, so there is no need for any excessive worrying. 


    No, i don't play on GB1. 


  • That makes sense.
    Thanks for the answers!

  • If you spy the FL's immediately again after sending your attack; on the off chance their defence has changed- it will be shown on the new report and therefore you have time to recall the attack avoiding unnecessary losses.

    After GGE removed the feature of FLs/BCs attacking, I've seen a significant decline in defense troops in a FL/BC. I would assume this is caused by players no longer needing to have defense in their mains to defend those attacks.

    Is anyone else experiencing this issue or have I just gotten really bad BCs this time around?
  • Nothing changed, FL's / Bc's aren't real players, it has no impact lol

    I don't know how you all feel about FCs and BCs but my lot are very tired and disillusioned by them ...many aren't even bothering to play when they are around . The castles are utter rubbish and very 'expensive' to keep deforging and most of the time deforging is worthless anyway .Now we have no incomings from them as well seems a pointless exercise....thoughts

  • Yep, it's very frustrating, hit about a 100 yesterday and couldn't find a castle above 2k which is just hopeless.

    Think they need to change the event slightly in my opinion, for ex, say after every 100 hits on a FL's/BC's, you get 1 guaranteed "special" 10k defence FL/BC castle highlighted outside your castle which you can hit once.  Or an idea similar
    - at least it gives players an incentive to hit the fl's/bc's and would make the event more popular to play

    If you are working on the LTPE or the King of Shadows / Queen's Defense, the easy castles let you get through them with lower troop losses.  It also requires more flags to get enough Glory from the small ones to get the higher LTPE point levels. Coincidence?  Flags ARE available for Purchase.

    If you are simply trying to boost your Glory Title, then it is a crap shoot at best.  

    Kind of seems appropriate to me, in all honesty.   If you want to boost your Glory, go hit a real player who has defense.





    Of course, that is just about as hard to find as a FL/BC Castle with good defense...…...
    Good night.

    People would be more likely to spend money and buy rubies if the targets were decent.
    Or are they trying to get us to shell out 1200 rubies to "Fortify" each castle?
    It is puzzling.  It is barely worth hitting a BC or FI castle - if it weren't for the contests.

    Why would players spend more? Reaching the max rank (not including top 100, 50, 20, 10 and 1s) is easy. Players will buy more often to get the hard prizes. Why would I buy if I can reach the top prizes? Literally no reason except to have a title for 4 days lol. Load of sht event with equally bad rewards. 
    Please update the Kingdom League event to a real 'ranked' event. The current event is very bad, and very unfair - I am not being placed with players on similar skill level by any means, I have dominated the last 8 out of 12 days by over 500% compared to other players, the remaining 4 a player dominated me by over 500%.
