Hello all,hope all are well,i have a puzzling question.I attacked a member of the clan we are taking on in CvC,I sent 30,000 level 6 troops,had all attack boost on they are small 4.1 influence.I killed only 8700 level 1 troops and I got tore up,lost 2.1 mil influence,why did they do so much damage,i so little,i understand reinforcements and even if I would have lost why did I kill so few and lose so big to a small unshielded player,seems like boosted level 6 troops should take more,why was they so strong?

Interesting  subject.

I once won against a  player with much higher influence than me, and wondered how I'd done it. Recently I lost against an equally advanced player with  much lower influence.

Firstly, did they have lots of T1s ,and where there different kinds? 

Secondly, did you win these level 6 troops, or purchase them, or build them yourself after unlocking them? A post elsewhere  says unlocked troops have no resilience .

Thirdly, what about Hero equipment?

Fourthly, did you attack a tile or a town? Attacking a town ,may have given time for  a change of Hero equipment, or the addition of boosts  against you and for the defender, which may have been previously added  before resource collecting from a tile.... A trap ?in either case possibly.

Lastly, if you have one, look at the battle report to see where you fell short on statistics

JWILLIAMS won’t have a battle report since they lost.


I definitely smell a trap.


Always scout first to see even if they are small

Seems I learned something today.

I thought not having a battle report was something to do with the different levels between opponents and knowledge bonuses from the oracle. 

It does don't explain how I won against a stronger opponent though
