What was the reason for the attack?

I guess I will never understand, why people gloat about fighting people who don't fight back...

I don't see it as gloating, as far as I'm aware there haven't been any attacks like this so people might just be interested to see how things went. Attacks in general don't need to have a reason and in my opinion are better when the only reason is strategical and not personal.

care to explain what this is about and what you mean with "like this"?

@chris - It was a rank 26 fighting a rank 23. Shed didn't fight back, but the assets available to both were equivalent.
It was a crazy event in the world.
Also, by the last fight, they were, in fact, fighting back.

@Glickeroo, it's a lot more interesting and informative if you link to the start of the battle's historian data.
But anisoptera is right, they were fighting in the last fight. But something bugged up at some point and turned off the towers which was the majority of the defense.
This does illustrate a few points. The first being fully upgraded creeps are terrifying and need to be responded to in a big way to negate damage. This also may be a case to say certain buildings must have extra defense or their HP raised by the devs. Nothing short of a ramparts on the towers or a second set of inner walls was going to save those towers without help from defense creeps.
> Nothing short of a ramparts on the towers
Yeah. That's what you're supposed to do to defend buildings from boosted creeps.
That, and having boosted creeps of your own.
FWIW I just had a look at one before last battle (W39S43), and even though the attacking creeps can sustain a lot of pain, it seems to me the towers are not choosing their targets correctly and on top of that, they're switching targets ...
they're hitting the dismantler creep, not the healer, which would be my preferred choice.
Mind you, this may not be enough, as if my calculations are correct that healer can sustain about 3500 dmg per tick (is that right ? 25 heal, +300% heal -70% dmg), which the towers alone can't sustain.
I'd also say the protections were not adequate ... < 1M walls in a RCL8 room ?
