Well, I'm fairly new so sorry if this has been posted before but I read in the elo rules that the highest attack ALWAYS wins. I have played slot of elo this week and quite a few of my games I have lost when I had more attack which made me lose the game. So I'm just wondering why this is. I'm played on a iPhone if that makes a differece.
You might be playing on random mode. Check your game settings.
I think you can either set that you play random or non-random. Click on your name on the left side to get to your profile. Then click on the preferences tab, and you can set to always play no-random.
