I know how frustrating it must be to have a non rushed clan and go against an engineered clan. I have a th11 that gets paired against th8s and has max th11 troops. I feel like it's just the difference of what you want your village to look like. If you think you should max your infernos before you max your bowlers, you are going to loose wars. Offensive should always take precedence over defensive. It's just smart playing. I started upgrading troops and hero's over defenses a year before I heard the term engineered. I now have going on 1500 war stars and can attack any number in war. I enjoy it.
