A lot of discussion lately about the disparity between new players and the established elite, especially when you factor in Guild strength. I am offering myself as an open case study and going to monitor all resource collection. I am a member of the #1 on both Consoles, so this will be an example at the extreme end of the spectrum.
I will be following a specific set of guidelines;
I will provide a Daily Report for an entire week. This will include a small video clip of my Collection. A full example will be at the end of this post.
I will not spend anything. No Gold, Glory, Gems, Traiting. I will complete Maps at my own leisure because that is normal activity a player would do. I spent all of my resources except Event Keys (because I’m not insane).
I will be recording how many battles I do (and broken down by type), Maps I do and any other pertinent activity.
I am keeping track of my Guild Rewards as well.
At the end of the 7 days, I will spend all of my accumulated resources and have a “before and after” comparison to the Troop and Kingdom summaries.

This Case Study was made in the sole interest of transparency and in no way is meant to “brag”, “show-off” or promote my Guild. This is a potentially self-damaging action on my part and would be a huge violation of privacy if it were done without my consent.
The goal of this Case Study is to provide insight, solid numbers and information to the Development Team and the Community so that we can all make decisions and form opinions based on facts and not speculation and rumours.
Negative comments are not necessary and any personal attacks, as a reminder, are a violation of the ToS.
