I think most of the Filipino COC players are now strong. This game has been in the market for years and most of them started playing since the early years. Even if others already quit. Most of them that is left playing is now super strong. Also with the bots that are now available on the game, it is possible that even a newly created account will progress a lot faster. I'm not saying that Filipinos love to cheat but like in this forums clashfarmer forum there are filipinos discussing about it. That's my opinion.
Yes, I agree there are some players that are still playing COC. I almost quit the game because I don't have time to play. I'm very busy on my job and family. Clashfarmer bot is helping to farm right now. I can farm resources while working. I think it's the latest bot that is working right now. They released a new version recently to improve the farming.
