In tonights Twilight Clash, my first hit against a more powerful player did over 1 million damage to him. When they were ahead by 5 flags, my 2nd hit did 750k damage. At 10 flags ahead, my 3rd hit did less than 500k damage to him. My final hit against him they were 24 flags ahead did 55k damage and me with full health and having just clicked for both buffs. It would appear that the bug reduces the power of the guild who is behind rather than giving them a buff.
