World War Matchmaking is undergoing a few updates. We have a variety of improvements planned for 2022, with the first batch of changes rolling out today. Our goal is to improve the matchups Alliances are seeing in World War. These adjustments will lead to more competitive matches and reduce scenarios where players are paired with higher age and experience levels.
- We’ve increased the timing windows for matchmaking. This will increase the time it takes to find a match but should lead to more competitive games in World War.
- We’ve also made a few under-the-hood adjustments to our matchmaking values that will impact how Alliances are measured against each other. As mentioned above, our goal is to improve the competitive balance when squaring up in War, leading to more competitive battles and fewer matchups where the War might be out of reach due to either Age or Level imbalance.
We will be keeping a close eye on our data and player feedback once the update is live, so be sure to let us know what your thoughts are in this thread once you’ve had a chance to fight a few wars.
The matchmaking updates are starting to roll out today, this is a server-side update so you will not need to update the game.
