And if you are going to ask "who says engineers have no skill?", then the answer without doubt is me. 90% of the engineered clans we face have zero skill. They are so used to dips and weak bases than when they get another engineered clan as an opponent, they fail horribly. In our last war they couldn't take out our 72 and 70 weight 9.5s on top with lvl6 warden and maxed bowlers.
In contrast when we face a non-engineered clan, I see much better attackers most of the time. They can't really win - because it's hard to take down our engineered bases with th9 armies, and we do have 10-12 th10 attacks to cleanup their th9s - but they do get up to 1-2 stars below perfect.
Vikingchief was in visiting in my clan when this last war started, he can tell you what an advantage the enemy had over us. They weren't just engineered, they had the defensive weight advantage on us too - due to a mismatch. Their top 3 all had 3 maxed x-bows and the topmost player also had half of his point defenses at maxed th11 levels. We were expecting a draw or a loss, but ended up with 45-35, with all 4 of their th11 attacks failing on our th9.5s and all of their th9 attacks failing on our th8.5s, the only higher 3 star they got were 2 th10 attacks vs 9.5s. This is not even an exception, this is how most engineered clans are.

Then it's "my clan pulls tons of max th9s, they're matched against TH10s though cause we engineer."
"the best th9 bases are dipped, which is a luxury we have because we're an engineered clan, 10 bowlers from a th10 will take down th9s." (Really, you don't say, color me shocked!)
"we bowler walk one side of base, then lavaloon the backside" (what happenened to th9 just spamming penta on fellow th9!?)
and finally, "we just spam penta on MOST bases and can easily get MANY 3 stars BEFORE THE HARD HITTERS USE THOSE SCOUTS TO TAILOR 3 STAR ATTACKS."
Man, it's amazing how fast the initial claim was backed off from without actually admitting it was nothing more than bravado from the start. It goes from "spam penta without heroes, automatic 3*," to engineered th10 dips, and bowler walks, and scouts for heavy hitters. Again, considering the source I'm shocked, SHOCKED I tell you!
Neither I nor anybody else in this thread needs a lesson from you on how beat up on a weaker base, with or without heroes.

Also, dips are common everywhere at TH10/11 in my experience and not just in engineered clans...
those basic categories...

Awesome sig pic by evertonjeff! Thanks again!
The balanced base clans are at a disadvantage, but we find that these are the ones who can't clear our th9's without dipping, can't clear our .5's, and fail against our top. These are the clans that should be able to challenge, but generally don't.
I have seen great attacks from dless, great attacks from max. I've seen laughable attacks from engineered, laughable from max. I don't think there is any correlation from maxing your base both offense and defense attacks and war attacks. You can max a th11 with barch, enough nexts, time, gems. Doesn't mean you can plan and execute a war attack.
As I keep reading and rereading, I seem to be confused here. At no point did I say penta was a 100% surefire way to 3 star without heroes. The only thing I said was "many 3 stars", I'll let you interpret what percentage that means. Yet people see my name and start bashing without rational thought.
I'd tend to say Golem+bowlers killsquad + backend laloon (3 or 2 hounds depends) is much more reliable
I only see Pentas on symmetrical bases, or bases where it's know there are no air targeting units in cc
