Yes, PvP is definitely A LOT harder now if you can't mount a strong defence. I win 3 fights gain 50-60 trophies and by the time I have another 3 attack points, I'm down 80. Once I get close enough to Gold 1, I then seem to get a few won defences that keep me in Legendary IV. Heck, I even briefly made it into Legendary III - twice! And now I'm back to 4099 trophies. Oh and this all happened in one day and the day isn't even over yet, LOL.
On the bright side, it seems they now give you enough time to get in your three attacks before you get attacked as I so far managed to do all three every time - unheard of!!!
In summary, not sure what to think of it yet. At least it seems that I do need to do some fighting to maintain Legendary status, rather than being able to more or less ignore it for most of the season....
....I noticed that the selection of opponents almost always comes from two or even three leagues above you. This is completely ridiculous and only feeds trophies to those that already have enough whilst you can't get anywhere. This needs to be fixed. How can you expect someone in Gold 1 to win against players in legendary III (my son) or myself against players in legendary II and even I ???
