    Post Less loot when attacking lower town hall levels (Version 2.73)

    Hey Guys and Gals,

    With the version that is going live today, we made some changes to looting. Namely on how much you can loot from attacking lower town hall levels.

    If you attack a town hall which is higher, equal or one level below your town hall level, you will be able to get the same amount of loot as before. If you attack town hall that is 2 levels lower than you, you will get 75% less loot. For example, town hall level 8 attacks town hall level 6 with 100 000 available loot, the attacker will only be able to loot 25 000. Attacking even lower level town halls will result in more deduction on the loot amounts.

    While we don't want to completely prevent people from attacking lower town hall levels, we feel that this change is necessary to improve the risk vs. reward aspect of the game. Previously, if you managed to find a target few town hall levels lower than you with good loot, the risk would be minimal and the reward would be high. In an ideal situation, the risk and reward would be near equal, as that makes the choices in the game most interesting. With this new system the risk vs. reward scales much better and will hopefully lead to much more challenging gameplay.

    Its always Good to make the game fair for low levels, but its not always possible so i guess this will reduce the number of attacks on low level players

    Good Stuff Thanks,

    Don't like it....way too extreme
    Even 50% is way too much

    From 100k available to loot, now it became 25k?? Way too extreme of a change

    Why not 40% reduction on 2 th lvl below,
    60% for 3 lv below, etc

    Well I will admit that this is not a very nice upgrade... Since this was one of the only ways to catch up with the top players and the ones that are earning free gems...
    Making this upgrade will essentially force most players to buy gems in order to be able to compete with the best players... Or they could wait for their upgrades and fight in around a year or so....

    Do not agree on this one..

    To compensate for the lack of risk. If you attack a town hall 2 levels lower than you, you win almost every time, without even using all your troops.

    Major Problem, Maybe?

    Hi there. Regarding the new "system" which is Players with lower Town Hall levels now lose less resources when attacked by higher Town Hall level players (2 level difference or more). ", there is a very bad side effect. If lets say, a level 5 town hall attacks a level 8 town hall, and he gains 200k from winning, if I (Level8 Town Hall) revenges back, i will only gain back less than 50k? Don't you think this is rather unfair to the players who have higher level town halls?

    Please give a thought to this. Its a MAJOR problem...

    Rauta, I think this is an improvement on the battle system... This way, "bigger" players have less incentive to attack the smaller players, and it allows smaller players with less of a chance of winning to "save up small amounts of loot...

    Question is, does the system work both ways??? Can I attack a player with TH +2 levels and walk away with +75% of the loot? as a reward for "attempting" the battle?? Aim high?

    Players still can drop their trophies and farm, but now they have to do it bit more balanced way. For example, only attack one town hall level lower players or equal level. This is anyway what most people are doing. There is plenty of loot available here and now even more so, as the high level players won't be able to tap into it.
