As Imperial and Rebel level 8, I let my medals as low as possible so I can attack and be attacked by players of my level or below. And even if I lose all my defenses I don't care, i realized medals are useless, and defenses don't give me much points in conflicts anyway. And I saw a comment on another post, and I totally agree that is better you lose at the first attack and save your remaining resources than keep winning defenses but losing more resources defense after defense. We call this "Cheap Protection", and yes, put your HQ out of the shields and try protect your resources. Let them win and save all resources you can.
If I need to protect my resources I let my HQ out of my base and try cheap protection. The game is for offense and to have or not to have the Jumps/Jets and their wonderful skins. Most of players were complaining they couldn't win attacks anymore because of Guard Reserve. Now many are complaining about can not win defenses anymore. Defense is just a little part of the game where you can have some fun watching replays where the attacker fails miserably against your GR or SC troops, and share them with your squad mates for some good laughs. Nothing more. The only defense that worths to win is the Heroic Defense.
Of course, every head has a thought. Many players want to win defenses because they give them much more medals. That's okay. I think I'm kind of weirdo in this game because I really don't care about medals or defenses won. And if I find a HQ all alone, and as my depots and vaults are most of the time full, I go only for the HQ and give the defender the cheap protection he was asking for.
