Just perspective. It's not wrong or right, per se. It's more to do with what do you really want as playing experience.
When I started my second account, I upgraded everything as fast as I could as I wanted to be matched with the best players in the game. I was looking for a challenge. Within 2 years, my base are now near max 10, and my medal count is capped.
However, perhaps for some players, they need their skills to catch up with their base development. Total understandable.
If I have to train a new/junior player in the squad, I would teach him/her the art of base design and attacking/scouting, so that they can have a good enough base to counter most opponent attacks and be able to take on tough bases to get loots to fund for upgrades. I would rather do that than teaching him/her how to manipulate the match making system to face with lesser opponent. But this is just me.
