For sure there is something wrong with matchmaking, we have 3 info age 3 digital and going on until powder age. One war we face 20 info age top 50 ally, the next one their top player is cold war lvl 253 and search for not even 1hr. Just fix this please its annoying and not fun for anybody.

ha.. I don't even complain about it anymore. We always have 2-3 top guys with 2-3 levels above are best one. Our CWA need to attack DA or IA ones. Well, it was crap, it is crap, and it will remain crap till the end of the game.

Since when did matchmaking stop being trash?

They don't care, hence no communication and haven't made any effort to improve things.

I'm surprised even the big guns keep the game alive still spending big cash.

matchmaking is a complex algorithm and that's a fact. It tries to take into account so many different aspects for every player for every alliance and do the best possible match within a reasonable time frame.

What I have seen from experience is that it is greatly affected by the individual war weight a player has.
Alliances with players that have 260++ CWA bases and 300+ space age bases are doomed to have unfair matchups not because the algorithm is wrong but because the players are too late in advancing ages.

@Spaceboy if i remember correctly, you were telling us the other day that you are a high level player in lower age. So you are maxing your defences. Well, this is the price your alliance pays for playing that way.

so always remember, when you reach that minimum level for the next age, ALWAYS go for it

is that your alliance @Stumbledore ?

if yes then that photo clearly showcases the problem.... You ALL must advance through the ages ASAP + max your offence. Then maybe , just maybe your matchups get better. Sorry for being the one to tell you the truth but you've been playing the game all wrong, ALL of you.

@Spaceboy is that your alliance? if yes then all the players with the Star right next to their name has to advance age as well.

as i said you all have big war weight that you cannot support offensively in wars. That is why you get matched with teams with DA/Info/Drone age players...

Staying CWA that long is probably the worst mistake one could make; as Space Age is the best Age in the game. It adds so much. Remaining CWA that long deserves punishment, sorry, it just does. There's absolutely no point nor benefit in doing so. Wow, even many Global Age players in this list could be Space Age! Staying Global Age so long is almost as bad as Atomic adds so much too... like _doubling_ plane capacity. Aging up before _everything_ is maxed is _not_ rushing btw.

In the end you're assuming Age should be the only factor in war matchmaking but this has never been the case nor should it be... it's time to accept that.

Here's highlights of what Space Age offers:
* Wonder: (Space Shuttle is awesome)
* Troop Capacity: +15 (via Sun Tzu, University)
* New General (Zhukov): best General in the game; upgrade Fort and start upgrading
* Museum Madness: 3-star artifacts make for (essentially) unlimited blueprints). The museum benefit here can't be overstated
* Offensive Silo (Big Red Button)
* Every Library book is awesome, including:
* Faster Uni/Library research
* Everything upgrades/trains faster
* Aforementioned enormous blueprint benefits
* Aforementioned offensive silo, with improvements
* Another SAM, and generally better air defense
* Standard troop/plane and war tactic upgrades
* Mercenaries: Heavy Tank Destroyers

Yes..that’s mine. I was supposed to be only big defensive one, but other team mates also maxes out their bases. I know that this weights a lot. I didn’t expect the impact to be so important. The matching algo is unknown so we are all guessing…
thanks for the image. I will discuss internally.

yes the matchmaking algorithm is unknown but we do know bits and pieces of it and most importantly we see how it behaves according to our line up. Try different roster and see how this affects your wars. Recruit more lightweight players....
