So I’ve been playing Clash of Clans on the new iPad. I am not really making much of an effort and don’t plan on joining Clans – the goal is to understand the game so that I can converse about it with my son.
For the first fortnight I was only attacked once – but that changed drastically once I upgraded to a level 5 Town hall (or maybe when I hit a rank of around 23). From that point I’ve been attacked repeatedly, every couple of minutes, until my base is destroyed. I am then left alone under the shield. Within moments of that dropping however I am again repeatedly attacked every couple of minutes. Some times it takes a few attacks, once I had 24 unsuccessful attacks before being defeated.
Is that normal? My son has never experienced that, but he has almost always been in a clan with school friends. Is the game trying to force me into a Clan?
Last time I made a point of ensuring my resources were at a minimum level when the shield dropped so attackers did not have much to gain, but that made no difference.
(*Edit* – I didn’t get a response to this – but I found after I attacked another player I was put in a league, and now I am attacked far less often.)
