It doesn't work. At level 5 with a high base strength/high number of medals you will become to be matched with level 6s with a few Armory items, as buffed turrets, walls, HQ, and maybe GR, and things will be the same. I know. I already tried that. It doesn't work. What you can try:
1) Start all over again with a new base. Play the game normally until reach the level 6 and get stucked at level 6 for the time you need until upgrade all your buildings and have ALL Elite Units and Armory items for attack and defense unlocked and upgraded to level 5-6, when there's nothing more to upgrade go to level 7, and to level 8, and keep playing at level 8 until max out your base again -- because game becomes a nightmare from level 9 ahead.
2) Be a sandbagging. It doesn't work too good but it's an option. You can keep your defenses 3-4 levels below your HQ and max out only your attack troops for your level. At the beggining you start to be matched with players 1-2 levels below you, with defenses 2-3 levels below your attack. Easy to win 3 stars, but soon as you keep upgrading your buildings for attack and earning more an more medals, your rivals become to be above your level, 1-2 levels. It doesn't work. I already tried that. I have a Rebel level 8 sandbagging and most of my Rivals are levels 9.
3) What really works is building a mini base. Forget about buy turrets, shields, traps and everything that is not important to improve your attack. Have a mini with no defenses, will help you to keep your base strenght always low. Upgrade your attack and keep growing your base with the same defensive items, and your rivals will be always the same for each level you go. Even earning more and more medals, the level of rivals doesn't increase too much.
I agree with Boog. Minis are the best option. I know because I also have a mini Rebel level 7. My rivals are most level 4-5 on Tatooine and level 5 on any other planet. Easy 3 stars in every attack with one hero and 12 soldiers, and easy to win defenses if I have high level troops in my SC, and turrets, walls and GR active in my Armory. With no defenses, It's hard win heroic defenses, but I can get more frags for my armory only playing objectives and events. You can build a mini and keep it at level 6 or 7 until collect all Armory items you need. If you think your rivals are too easy, buy a couple turrets, and level up your base strength a little more, and keep having an easy way in the game.
