Why is it so complicated to have information on how the matchmaking works? Now that P2W is back in full force, if matchmaking is as ridiculous as our last 2 matches, we will have no choice but to quit playing. Before, there was sandbagging, but we could add sandbaggs too, fair enough. But now, nothing makes sense. I thought that the alliance axp level had an impact, but no, we are level 9 vs they are level 15. I thought maybe we match by average levels, but no. Maybe just the top half of the line-up matches, but no. And if that's the case, forget about putting anyone lower than Space age in war. We had to boycott our last 2 wars. Hopefully it gets better. This last war, we had a mixed age line-up, facing 20 Digital age. The score is 100-0. Not fun for anyone. This is how we matched, hard to believe this was the closest match...

this must be the worst matchup ever! We also noticed a big change in our WW from the point I became a DA. As a result, we have to face 2-4 DA in every single war despite me being the only DA in our alliance. It doesnt make any sense too

We had a worse as this against Madhouse, might be them also shown here. Only a small number of alliances have this number of DA players.most or all of them don’t restart their search. Tho, someone will match them.

I have suggested matchmaking by glory, exactly the way multiplayer battles finds you an enemy. Being in the Kingdom League should give you tougher opponents than in the Gold League. Make WW matchmaking the same way. I have also analyzed the advantages of this method in many other posts.

I agree, there should be Alliance leagues! But we must take into account that there are very few active alliances and Alliance leagues will not solve the problem in the root, but will help improve matchmaking. I place more hopes on the matchmaking system at the right time. If, of course, BHG is going to implement anything at all ))

I think its remarkable how they can tell by glory points most times when you are screwed but can’t give you a fair match. It does seem like matches are worse with this update.

Our last 4 wars were mismatched...our current war:
DA 299 - DA 310
AA 243 - DA 305
AA 209. - DA 251
AA 187. - DA 263
AA 183 - Sa 254
AA 186. - CWA 248
AA 193 - CWA 213
AA 181. - CWA 224
AA 192 - CWA 202
GA 163. - AA 201

Glory is pretty close, rank on pl is close too, as you can see, all they need to do go defensive on the top, skill is not a factor, bc you can be the most skillful player, but without the power you can’t do much to DA bases with low lvl AA’s

Curious how much the #1 position player makes a matchmaking difference; as it's DA vs DA. In other words, I wonder if this would of matched had that DA been SA or lower. But as it stands, I assume this war search ran a long time without interruptions.

Interesting enough, our last 4 wars all matched up in an hour or less, so, I would assume the game thinks this is a “fair” match. As I expected, they went defensive in our current war, we are having trouble getting 5* on 1 DA base, if we do manage to 5*, they will eek out a time win on a tie... kinda sucks to have to rely on tt just to competed against mismatches

This is our current match:
  1. DA 365 - DA 310
  2. DA 365 - DA 300
  3. DA 337 - DA 291
  4. DA 349 - DA 286
  5. DA 321 - DA 288
  6. DA 337 - DA 277
  7. DA 313 - SA 258
  8. DA 327 - SA 253
  9. DA 317 - SA 256
  10. DA 319 - SA 230
  11. DA 307 - CWA 202
  12. DA 302 - SA 229
  13. DA 293 - CWA 223
  14. DA 293 - CWA 200
  15. DA 279 - CWA 206
  16. DA 295 - IA 131
  17. DA 286 - GA 143
  18. DA 302 - GA 149
  19. DA 269 - GPA 77
  20. DA 287 - GPA 71
Not only that, most of their bases have 3 or 4 lvl 80 generals, and the rest is 3x 70+, all have lvl 2 Rocket arsenal, those that we spied had maxed universities, with just Empress Wu and/or Harriet remaining. Highest general on our side is lvl 59, perhaps 3 or 4 players have one general that's lvl 50 or above. This is the worst matchup ever.
TinSoldier why don't BHG include VIP level in matchmaking? Non-spending players should not be matched against big spenders. We're not even going to bother this war, it's just a waste of time.

Ok, Dark Ages matched Lendarios. You really think anyone at BHG can investigate anything if you don’t tell them the facts, including names?
