That's a 2 sided blade.
After all the trouble winning battles, a bunch of loosers takes your hard fought resources away. Still in a slump of not being able to upgrade or fund attacks.
If the developers are so keen on loosers getting loot, give it to them, but let the winner keep his!
There isn't even any fun in winning defenses a lot this way... not at all. Isn't this game supposed to be FUN!?!?
So tell me what solution you have for when people stop attacking bases they know they can't possibly beat, and knowing they won't get to take home any loot either? Defensive wins will be a thing of the past. All the top dawg players will begin to attack down more than ever. Lower levels will not be able to hold any loot from repeated attacks by higher levels. Higher levels will have maxed vaults all the time as very few will dare try and loot them, while the lower levels will feel frustrated and start quitting, again.
All these crutches you see in the game are there for a reason, to help players alleviate the burden of having to grind long hours for loot. A lower level with a few Kubaz/Ithorians and a few starships can easily be a headache for a full lv10 with coffers full. Don't want baby bases stealing your loot like that? Well then you better stop picking on them and giving them revenge opportunities on your base.
When I get looted like that by a say a level 8, they get a loot bonus too, so they can take up to 1.5 million in resources and over 30k of contraband... don't tell me that's not enough to help fund a few upgrades and keep on attacking?
The way the game is set, the only way one can aspire to defensive wins anymore is either get hit by lower levels OR get hit by someone at your level having a bad day. Offense is definitely more prominent now than defense is. There are so many counters out there.
