Q: As the match is being made, how is the War ranking determined? It seems that the heavier weight maxed out bases, especially in disproportionate mismatches (sandbags or not) are ranked in the middle of a 20v and 25v roster. It is not uncommon to see an AA level 240 base ranked #9 or 10 below Global Age bases in the 190's. How do you determine War ranks and could this be a reason for such terrible mismatches that do not involve sandbags? Are the same principles being used in rank used in the actual matchmaking algorithm? If so, is there a way for these maxed bases to mask upgrades (either intentionally or through glitches) so they do not show up when searching? It can't be the selective upgrades because these bases upgrades, both offensively and defensively are much more advanced than the bases above them in actual exp upgrades and in research upgrades as evidenced by tanks spam and unbreakable walls. Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions.
This is caused by a bug where high ranks of certain buildings are worth 0 offensive/defensive rating and fixing the bug caused matchmaking to break. We’re working toward a fix for this in an upcoming release.
This is a horrible bug and getting worse by the day lol. Its probably a leading cause of mismatches where sandbagging is not present, and makes sandbagging mismatches where this exists extraordinarily bad (like the near 40 level gaps we've seen recently). At least they know what it is, I hope its fixed in the next update.
Soooo are we going to see a change to matchups and sandbags in the next update or should we all start looking for a new game to play?
Had about enough of constantly asking my enlightment age players to hit a sodding atomic ! No fun for them, no fun for me either.
this game is broken.
Nb4powerup Has this been fixed in the update? Its a pretty nasty bug, giving a max AA base the war weight of an Enlightenment/Industrial player. Not quite as bad as sandbagging for matchmaking, but pretty close lol. Im sure its complicated, but I really hope that since the lead designers and others were aware of it in the AMA, it would have been fixed?
Has anyone started a war since the update and been able to see?
I know you have a hard job, especially today. And I know you want whats best for the game, so I'll try not to be annoying with the response. You must feel like Sean Spicer.
But, I just dont understand why there is no update on this? You said on March 29th in this thread you'd talk to the developers about it presumably for an update, its a month later. It was covered as a known bug in the AMA that needed to be fixed. So there has to be some info we could get as to what the plan is? I cannot imagine waiting until the mid summer update for this to be fixed, so many bases are now starting to fall into this category. Is it something you could try to get an update for us on? Or, does no update mean its just not a priority and the developers are worried about other things as being more significant?
BHG should group ages first, then rank by levels second. That way I can continue to cap without hurting the Alliance I'm in with my war rank pushing ahead of the pushe,,,,,,,,,,,,,, none-cappers. Yeah that's the ticket!!
Now before y'all go berserk on me, I am just playing,,,,,,,,, I mean raiding in DomiNations;-]
