sounds like a great idea!
I feel your pain! We're constantly tweaking the matchmaking to make it better for all of our players. Dropping the shield voluntarily would improve the situation only slightly as majority of people don't want to be attacked (as we can see by the wide spread of use of buying shield with diamonds by the high level players). We'll continue to look in to the possibility of this feature, but for now we're focusing on other possibilities with higher potential positive effect.

Just to keep the balance, I think shield cool down is a good idea as makes it more difficult for the type of play who just wants to buy his way out of competition. Now everyone has to think more. That is good.
PYou must enjoy the multiplayer aspect of the game. Yes it makes sense and there is a need for balance, I'm just not sure this address the "balance of power problem".

I'm sorry but I feel the "people able to buy there way out of trouble" will be worse not better.
But I'm glad you are still enjoying the game and I wish you good luck in your battles. I'm looking forward to the next game they release with all the experience they have gained from this one.
