    Agreed. Another example: getting to the next TH, building all of the def and upgrading them, and neglecting offense, in order to match a clan with a bunch of rushers, because rushers are easier to beat.

    Still another: warring with just little bases in order to match noob clans and beating them, because they're noobs.

    It's a big tent. Welcome, fellow engineer!

    As everyone is saying, engineering is as engineering does. With the latest, secret MM, nobody can tell you whether you are gaining advantage, by going .5, or creating a disadvantage, as the workings are totally obscure. Sure, .5 places your off above def, but what if the MM has a 2:1 off/def ratio built into it, due to having 2 war attacks?.. Things have changed since the 12 drop, and more questions than answers have been the outcome so far. Even the most enlightened forum members are in disagreement over practices that were a given, in the past.
    Maybe the best policy, is to follow an upgrade path that works for you. If you get good spins, and are winning wars, then you are doing things correctly, for your clans purposes, whether it be engineering or not. If you are getting bad spins and/or losing, then a change to your format will be required.
    Engineering, in its current form, is slowly dying, so don't worry about terminology.

    I tried searching, but couldn't find anything.

    Is it engineering to rush one account to TH12 to donate WW, and leave this account out of the war?
    Listen, and understand! That Engineer is out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pain. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop... ever, until your win streak is broken.

    Yes, that is called 12.WW, you need to get with the times. The matchmaker doesn’t flag it so don’t worry.

    Contact SC here. Click here to see how trophies are calculated. My tips/thoughts on Legends here. My legends hope: 14 hours daily search limit to reduce advantage of account sharing; black clouds screen; Legends3 5000-5499 cups, Legends2 5500-5999, Legends1 6000+ and titans/champs canít attack Legends1 or 2 players; while in clouds let us watch war, donate, do FCs, base design. Make a separate PvP trophy ladder option for all, others found here.

    Yes, of course! You are altering the progression path of your base, purely with the intent of offering a war advantage to your clan, over those who choose not to sensibly upgrade one of those bases.

    It's indirect roster engineering, but I'm more than happy to go with 12.WW, as it just looks so much better!!!!

    While I'm a 9.5 and was a serious .5 lately. But some recent discussions in clan war sub forum made me to think if that is really helping our wars. So, I started observing our matches more carefully and from that, I can say that .5s in our clan are not giving much of an advantage (may be more disadvantageous). We find complete bases and in many cases engineers (9.11 n similar). And luckily I got a video from Clash Tutor on matchmaking n engineering based on the changes made, every1's talking about. It was not much different than what listening on forums, and gave little more deep insight on the situation. .5s are at more disadvantage than engineers at present.
    Keeping the balance is better than serious .5. When going to new th lvl, it won't be a good idea to drop defenses too soon when offensewise backwards. But holding off defenses till all heroes n troops are maxed isn't good. Better to get those deff when offense is built enough to 3 star them. I was holding off defenses for way too long. But better late than never so, I'm flexible enough to change the old mindset and planning to get ITs down in 2days (builders to get free).

    I like that term. If you will permit me to use it I will grant you rights to the term potioneered any time you like.

    Hmm, now I’ve thought of a problem with the 12.WW term I made up...er I mean that well recognized term that Papa should’ve known: what if players start doing it for blimps some day in the future when blimps become better? I think we better go with 12.SM
