Yeah I'm out syncing in 90% of fights now too. Seems to be my first attack causes it to happen. It sucks because now I have 5 full 60 battalion armies and my town also being full so theres not much to do but PvP and I LOVE the PvP in this game. I'll keep lvling troops till they work out the syncing issue.
Don't take life too seriously. You will never escape it alive anyway!
