Are we sure the matching system only considers the bases in the war? We just did a war for our lower ranked players- all gunpowder and medieval. They were matched against an all industrial/enlightenment group. (OK, the had 1 gunpower out of 20.) This would have been a good match only if we included our advanced bases.

How is this possible?

Unfortunately there is no sure formula for us to calculate.

Is it possible their EA/IA are lacking in defence/attack but your GP/MA have maxed your defence/attack?

Walls play a major part too. One other thing is the possibility that your guys max all troop upgrades where else the opp only upgrade troops that they use and leave all other troops/gens/tactics un-upgraded? I know of some guys doing that.

Like I said, there is no sure way to tell. There are too many variables.

Ps: my alliance have recently matched/ mismatched with an alliance whose ages were much lower than what we were used to. But their wall lvls were illogically high compared to the rest of their buildings. Cheaters? I don't know. But we still wiped the floors with their super fancy walls.

In kings order, we used to split the wars, one for bigs, one for smalls, and one for all. We found that the wars for smalls were always mismatched. Gunpowder and enlightenment being matched with industrial and global. So we concluded that the alliance's overall strength was used in the formula.

Nice to know, I was just about to try that splitting to see what happened. I suppose somebody realised non-participating Global members could still donate.

But then again I'm probably giving them too much credit and it's as random/out of balance as the rest of the game.

Think Ive found something that might help with no war loot. Happened to me again (second time).. I think unchecking the war box to be unavailable BEFORE the current match has finished makes the system miss out giving you any war loot.

Funny, we did split our alliance and now we are getting much better matchups! Some opponents are stronger, some not so much, but only one total mismatch since we split.
