    Do you guys read these comments Tin cup, Muet, anyone???? After every inane response I get a referral to the forums for more information and there is barely any here. Would be very good for you guys to engage with us to better understand and fix these match making problems.

      Hey Usa jet! Yup! We're here happily reading along and hopping in when we have information ready to share.

      There have been a number of players who have provided some great insight (both here and through private channels) that has helped us understand the experience from your perspective. As you know, systems in the game can be continuously tuned and balanced, and matchmaking is no different. We'll be happy to announce more information on any balance changes as soon as we have them!

        Thanks Tin Soldier. I would appreciate much more transparency about what you guys are thinking. Clearly the matchmaking does not favor players and alliances who max at every level. I know we are in the minority but are die hard players who got the rug pulled out from under us. We would routinely win 75% of wars, now we lost 80%. If you are not going to make changes just tell us. Thanks.

      Is that just me or this post was already made like 6 months ago and this system is already in play but the comments seems to be only a few days old?

        It's just you~ ( ^_^ )

        No, topic revival seems to be a popular thing on these forums. ;p

      Alright, some additional thread necromancy here.

      BHG_Muet now that 15v15 searches are back, I assume that won't water down the search queues too much to negatively impact search times?

      Thanks!

        BHG_Muet - just an FYI that none of your replies are showing up on the forums to people. It shows that you've responded on the main page, but your responses don't show up in the thread. But, if you go to the list of your posts on your user profile, your posts are listed there. Forum problem?

            Could you check if you are actually applying any balanced matching mechanism at all for 15 v 15 wars? We have seem some very good match-making for quite a long time now UNTIL we tried a 15 v 15 war yesterday, which is the most unbalanced matchup we have witnessed for like 3 years...

            We were also matched quite quickly compared to 20 v 20, which seems odd since 15 v 15 was just reinstated. So maybe someone forgot to apply the matching algorithm for 15 v 15?

              Yep, same here. Just tried our first 15v15 for a while and the mismatch is so ridiculous that it's laughable...….

            I'll look into it today. Were any of the warring members high level Space Age players?

            I'm also not sure what is going on with the forums. I'll ask around and see if we can get it figured out. Apologies!

            Yes, one level 300, the other level 310. But overall it's a complete mismatch with 3 Space Age + 4 CWA vs. our just 2 CWA players. Especially with this being just a 15 v 15 war.

              So in short you allow cheating- AKA sandbagging their bases haven’t been active for months even years yet troops can be donated to them and an active player cant until we update our game. Thanks for cheating players

                US: 6 SA, 3 CWA, 5 AA, 2 IA, 1 EA, 1 Classical, 2 Irons.
                THEM: 12 SA, 6 CWA, 1 IA, 1 MA

                BHG_Muet So you guys still "suspect" what could be causing this? The ridiculousness of this statement is BEWILDERING. EVERY half decent player knows many defenses are not being accounted in war weight.

                Concretely, WTF are you people doing to fix it and HOW SOON? Oh btw GP split: 32/-288

                  That's not so bad of a match-up. Granted the "many defenses are not being accounted" part has merit, and is unfortunate, but this match-up itself is not terrible especially considering there's a lot more to a person's value in war than simply Age.
