We separated from a bunch of barely actives so that we could try to find another active alliance to join with. We are not money people so the rise is slower but we were on 7star titans. Min 800 trophies (mostly so that you can participate without getting eaten by the Titan).
option: merge your active alliance members. We have 10 that have 2000+ trophies.
Feel free to comment here if you have questions.
Thanks for looking and hopefully we see you soon
(primarily North American)
