There is a huge imbalance in the game and it is all about money. It is hard to compete with someone that does spend alot of money on the game but that is their choice. I know it hard to compete against the big BR players and I stopped trying. These merges are still frustrating it does bring out the worst and best in players. My guild was the number 1 Alliance guild on my server until we started merging. After this merge we are the 4th, no biggie but out of guild battle. As for events, I am done trying. Until either I raise my BR or the some bigs stop playing no sense if I can't get a hit in. The thing to remember is that most of these servers have had the time to grow big players. Many of the early (older)servers have months on the younger servers. You can't fight time. I am not happy with this latest merger either but it is done. BTW, anyone else noticed that the Golden September Event is still not working or even up?
