So this might be an unpopular opinion, but I personally feel that the game is becoming more influenced by attacking than proper defense. I remember back when the max th was the newly released th11, and still a maxed out th10 would be the ultimate defensive unit. Even a good th11 would find it difficult to 2 star a max th10.

The game is supposed to be based on attacking other bases and defending your base from attackers. But I find that the game has been shifting towards supporting attacking more than good defending. This has resulted in what we are seeing now. Hit rate at th 13v13 is 40% 3 stars, 55% high percent 2 stars. This might be different after the update increasing army capacity to 300.

So basically what I am trying to say is that the defensive side of the game is being less incentivised with every update. There is not much incentive to make a proper home village base as you’ll be 2/3 starred anyway. I miss when the defenses used to be powerful and 3 stars at the top level were hard to come by. A 3 star would show true skill and often a bit of luck too.

But then again, that style of gameplay might be the reason that many people left clash during its peak years from 2015-17/18. Maybe people like attacking more and attack friendly gameplay will attract more people to the game.

Also I feel that heroes are OP. The heroes have made it that much easier to 3 star a base. I am not saying that the attacking is too easy, it still requires skill, and everybody makes mistakes sometimes, but what I mean to say is that attacking now is the easiest it has ever been, and I believe the game will continue in this direction.

A friendly reminder that this is my ‘Personal Opinion’ and people may think otherwise. Would like to see any different viewpoints.

  1. This game goes in cycles, rn it’s at the peak of attack over defense, it’s time for a new defense that’s super good or another very good defense (another scatter or dare I say it eagle) but yes the game attacking is good but also blizzard is so broken the stats are inflated rn

  2. People like getting triples. I doubt many want to spend an hour planning attacks and come away with a 70% 2 star. SC is just catering to the masses IMO.
