PQC - If I remember correctly level 4 requires 2000 battles which is 40 per player, and that assumes EVERY player is doing their 40 battles. So how you get 5 days to do level 5 is beyond me.
I fully respect that everyone will have different designs on how they play the game. From the casual player who dips in and out, to the committed player who may play for hours and hours a day. There are alliances to suit all types of player and this is a good thing. But this kind of dedication to complete defence missions is over the top for the vast majority of players.
All the alliances I have been in since their implementation have only reached the final defence mission with 2 days max to do it. If I’m honest, it really doesn’t seem worth the time and effort to even attempt this, and certainly if an alliance insisted that I battled for at least 2 hours every day 7 days a week, plus completing all the other tasks, I would see it as hard work rather than a game.
You may say that’s my choice and the choice of the players in the alliance. Clearly your alliance is dedicated and you complete it so it’s not impossible. But where does one draw the line between fun and sheer torture?
All I’m saying is that 4000 battles for one level on defence tasks is over the top for the majority of alliances.
