Tbh. can not see the issue here.
You either focus on completing invasion… meaning no downgrade at all + more gold, or you simply let it go by not defending at all, to get low downgrades, or you push for more waves and targeting more downgrades, which means more town board quests for all.
yeah the logic is completely backwards imo, the deeper you go into the invasion the less gets downgraded, I don’t see how it makes sense to do it the current way. I was really excited to jump into my first invasion in a few levels time. But now im abit disheartened
This is what you do alot of people suggesting “not to defend” which is ridiculous and outright fails to achieve “a lesser downgrade”. As long as there is no other comment from a dev on this i would stick to this, to have lesser downgrades on the “fun mechanic” invasions.
