Prevent Medal Droppers

In the past 24 hours I’ve been hit up 13 times of someone just placing a troop or two and retreating, giving me 245 medals that I should not have. This happens regularly with my main account.

Meanwhile my account on my other device is similar in all other means, but it is rarely attacked.

I’m not sure what the algorithm that determines who is selected as an opponent, but if certain accounts are being attacked more frequently, it would be great to limit the number of defences within a certain period of time, or perhaps for medal droppers, make it so if they loose a certain number of battles by deploying less than a certain percent, it does not count.

So what’s wrong with free crowns? 😉
They only deploy one guy, so there are no free crowns :(

I wouldn’t mind so much if it is a proper attack, but leaving one or two guys, maybe springing a trap or two, using up my trap blessing, is just rude!

The fact that traps are triggered and the Blessing is spent is, of course, very sad! Perhaps it would be worth rearranging the traps so they don't go off so quickly? You yourself "catch guys at the entrance".

Otherwise, I don’t see anything reprehensible in such attacks. 🤷‍♂️ And it’s certainly not worth banning such attacks.

P.S. Perhaps the best solution would be to increase the threshold for using the Blessing of Traps so that it is used like the others - when causing more than 10% destruction to your city (base). But then you will definitely be left without those traps that have already worked. Paradox.

P.P.S. As we know, in war all means are good, and here in the game it is also possible to simply “robbery of resources” without entering into a full-fledged battle, or other variant, as you call it “dropping medals”. If you suffer losses in vain (losses the Blessing), then change the strategy of setting traps.

Thanks for the advice Sega,

Unless there is a trap hiding, the traps are all behind walls.

I think I got a bit side tracked as I have been attacked 17 times in the past 24 hours. I’ve just placed my third trap blessing today.

I think the real issue is why is it my main account get hit so often, while my other one has not had a medal drop in a week, last attack 3 days ago, the other 10 people in my alliance rarely gets attacked or medal dropped.

I don’t care if I get attacked as it helps me make a better layout, but it seems weird it’s just the one account in the entire alliance.

Is it normal to have over 12 defences in 24 hours?

Hard to tell. Sometimes several per hour, and sometimes not a single one per day. Anything can happen. This means that in some way your city is attractive for this kind of attack or attacks in general.

By the way, take these attacks on you positively - firstly, you test your defense, and secondly, you have the opportunity to attack in response (“revenge”), but with a clear advantage - you can more carefully study the enemy’s city before will attack him ( hint: in the battle list, you can click on the enemy’s name and select “visit”).

What level of medals is your main acc vs your alt? I've found that at some medal ranges I get attacked more often.

I am one of those medal droppers. I try to stay below 400 medals, and in doing so I get many easy higher-age bases to loot, with a huge Domination bonus. I try to at least deploy my troop far from any potential traps, and if I see that a certain base keeps popping up, I skip it.

Gives you opportunities for revenge since the players want to attack your base, even for medal drop.

Drop medals yourself, medals droppers are not an issue, they do nothing to your base, not sure why you complain about that, they are just dropping medals, it is literally part of the game, the higher the medals the tougher the bases, which means harder loot, that wouldn't be effective for anyone, do you know how many players would complain? More than half of the people who play the game would be extremely upset, opponents are randomized, you are high medals most likely which makes you a bigger target, people drop medals for triump, the lower the medals the easier the base, the higher the medals harder the base, it is part of the game, you are practically asking for losing not to be a thing.

It's more of getting hit a dozen times within a few hours that bugs me.

I have not had a serious attacker on my base since I was in the Cold War age. I want to see how it fares against a serious opponent, so I can improve. Perhaps the problem is I have not rushed since I got into the Cold War Age, while most of the opponents right now seem hopelessly rushed and it may be hard to find an easy base for them.

Thanks to the instant retrains, I make very good use of revenge, I try to spring every trap, take out every general, take resources then leave before I get a star.

If you want join Anteaters you can send a base challenge in chat, I can make room for you, save retrains for triump, do you have a discord? totally understandable though and retrains are the best, I have 60 hours worth on my one account lol blew my mind! But yeah remember, higher medals harder the base, lower the medals easier the base, drop medals for triump, you will get medal droppers every 20 days, if you lower medals, you might get better attacks on your base, It is hard to get in the top I fine, seems like some people glitch some how there's been a top player with the lowest medals possible, not sure how it's possible they should reset the leader board.
