For a long time my gut tells me that there is something very wrong with my main account. You read on here how everything is RNG and how the lack of tiles is only at the start of each board and thereafter random.
I wanted to post before that all the fun have been sucked out the game because of the blatant manipulation of boards, but this is well documented. I do agree you have bad boards & bad days, but when it occurs consistently to one account red flags jump up.
Main account : 4k USD | L60 | 58 maxed incl Elemental down | Multiple high level troops
Noob account: F2P | L40 | 1 max 4* team, 6 x L3/60 | L1 3* troops
Friend’s account: C2P | L 50 | Mixed bag
Play style: Raid 3/2 & Titan 4/1
The penny dropped when I decided to take my main account to our noob alliance from a Top 100 alliance fighting 12* titans with a no skip policy.
How it unfolded:
Since the introduction of RT the main account got such terrible boards, it usually ends up eliminated by day 3. The noob account performs much better. (aware it’s matched differently, that does not explain why the boards are so much worse)
12* Titan hits were so poor, if no high level items were used, scores would range between 6-10k. No amount of tornado’s could fix this, literally had to search for moves, resorting to auto play at times.
Took the account to the noob alliance where the alt is. Going to blast that 7* Titan out the water right? Wrong! The noob account consistently outscores the main by some margin. What now? Approached my neighbour whom I introduced to the game, maybe I’m a bad player. He joined our noob alliance and we decided to perform each others Titan hits a few times. A week has gone by now and we’ve established two things. In both our hands the main account performs much worse at every corner and when I hit the Titan with his account my average score was better.
Side note. I’m approaching 180 summons with no HoTM and only one 5*. That is incredibly unlucky according to the choir boys, now I suspect luck has nothing to do with it at all.
Questions: If high level accounts get worse boards & odds why is the main so much worse than my friends? Zynga made news a few years ago and caused a lot of unhappiness because of rigged practices in their poker game, did I incur the wrath of a dev?
There is a saying that when a lie is told often enough people will start to believe it…so what is really going on here? RNG can’t explain this away.
Game wide issue - adding my opinion while I’m at it.
It is not a test of skill nor is it enjoyable if gameplay is so heavily manipulated that you have no tiles showing up time after time in Raids, AW, RT even when you try to recover from a bad board. Challenging fights is my favourite, but these days you know the outcome by the time the board loads.
This is not a rant. It is a very calm post raising concerns.
