I can't think of anything that would fix the stop-and-go herky-jerky pace of game play, unless they remove the restriction that you can't start a new battle until the previous battle finishes.
Short of that, WS will continue to be virtually unplayable for me. And WTF Supercell, why can't we just get intel from destroying ERs? Why does it have to be tied up in chests, which makes it so that I can only grab an intel or two per day from WS?! It's literally not worth my time. And that continue to be the case as long as intel remains am overriding concern. Bc if you're looking to bump intel quickly, PvP & dailies are still the way to go.
So for me personally, it's frustrating to think that SC poured an entire year into this, yet there is no effective change from my point of view. 👎
