This is interesting, can you elaborate please?
Look at the European map right now, there is no fighting on the map because all of the major powers can get enough gold to satiate everyone. The real "problem" with CW is that there is not enough high level competition. If your goal is to have major clans fight each other than you have to either:
A) increase the talent pool in which good clans are formed from which results in more clans competing for the same limited supply of gold and therefore increase the scarcity (ideal solution, really tough to do)
B) Force the same clans to fight over less gold. If the overall map was worth about 2/3-1/2 of the former EU/Africa map then you create a scarcity that would force more fighting and increased competition. The africa map was terrible for CW. It basically created a lower level CW that caused stagnation of talent for clans that couldnt cut it in the EU portion of the map. 99% of clans there were content to sit there and not get any better because leaving it would mean leaving their comfort zone and taking a risk.
I really want to see more, better
clans on the map. It is absolute bull that clans I can take an A team to and beat 15-3 90% of the time should be allowed on the map and yet they are and they farm gold. The way to make CW better is to make it more competitive. Not hamstring good clans or have gimmicky events
