When I posted the last post, I hadn't noticed his claimed trophy count.

Frankly, I find his claim almost impossible to believe. AIUI, there is NO TH level matching once you reach Champions. So he shouldn't be getting clouds, he should be getting an endless stream of TH10+, with maybe1inn 100 a TH9, and 1 In 1000 a TH8. And no TH5 can 1 star a TH9 base that is capable of reaching champions.

The only way I can see a TH5 even managing to stay in Champs 3 is because nobody else there is going to bother attacking them, the loot will be so tiny.

To progress, he must be nexting many hundreds of times for each base he can get a star from.
