Medals are hard to earn, easy to lose!
Additionally, if your PvP is artificially easy you will likely not improve as a player, and will almost certainly get worse. Against a real base of similar strength, say in a war, you will learn to suffer!
Sandbagging is for wimps! Grow a pair and farm medals like you know you should. And besides, Zynga will likely fix the matchmaking to not depend on medals, which currently makes no sense whatsoever. You've been warned!
Let's be honest here. How many have asked the DEV to fix MM issues? I know I have many times.
Our old squad had a nice range of player from level 5 to 10. And to be unfairly matched to 15 level 10 bases was beyond a joke! Wars became a drag and a disappointment, even stopping MM every few hours and trying again a fresh didnt work. So we broke up that squad and started a fresh.
The DEV said they were going to do nothing about it, their reasons "A war match is better than no match".
If someone has figured out how to get around the unfair matching, then good on them!
