With the game in its current state attacking events cannot occur anymore. These are the fairly obvious reasons...
Balance - Attacking now vastly overpowers defending since the recent update. For players with a lot of troops like myself, we are setup well for this. Other weaker players have found themselves quitting after the most powerful players can easily lay waste to their entire army's losing next to no troops in the process. This is really an issue that has been on kingdom chat almost ever night. Everyone is aware of the imbalance currently but we can't do anything about it.
Stupidity of no Reinforcements - Adding into the game attacking events with absolutely no reinforcement feature for players ally's and friends was simply atrocious planning. If a weaker member of an alliance did get hit there is absolutely nothing their alliance can do for them if they can't afford a shield. They can be attacked 200 times a day and while we can port in and try to hit and force the attacker away he need only attack with around 10k troops to be effective at stealing any generated resources. The result is the player has nowhere to turn and leaves.
Top 100 system - This system only benefits the strongest players with the most troops and awards them with vast amounts of gold so the top 10 of a kingdom and especially the top 5 can grow even stronger without spending a penny or doing very little in the first place.
Rally - There is no rally feature currently in the game. Rally is an essential component in forcing a large attacker to leave a group of players and in guild organisation. Not having this simply means large players will not bother attacking each other as one will lose troops and the other simply won't.
Quite simply the game cannot support anymore attacking events. It couldn't really support the last one which really damaged my kingdom it forced many players to leave and was not a fun event. I fully recognise this is a war game but the features are just not there and right now this event is a bit of a farce.
