A couple days ago we posted about some upcoming changes to the in-game economy of Clash of Clans (Free) following the enormous Town Hall 11 update. Cliffsnotes basically amounted to players felt like they were losing too many resources when being raided, so as a consolation prize of sorts, Supercell proposed the upcoming loot cart which rewards the defending player a percentage of the resources that were stolen from them.
Since then, the Clash of Clans-iverse has been on fire with players wondering just where these resources were going to come from. The prevailing thought was that the raiding party was actually leaving that loot behind, which made sense, as that loot had to come from somewhere right? Well, a few hours ago Supercell clarified that nothing is taken away from the attacker, at all, on any level. Instead, this bonus swag wagon is exactly that, a small bonus for the defending player.
So, again, attacking troops don’t drop anything. The loot cart is just a bonus.
