I just wonder if there are any squads still out there like ours doing wars anymore, or did they all give up/join forces with other 10s. Or is it mostly these high level squads with mostly high lvl 10s?
Hi KTown. We're getting more even squad war matchups. But, it has taken a lot of trial and error and I still don't think we fully understand how it's working. We consist of a couple 10s, a bunch of 9s, and a couple 8s, 7s, and 6s. What we've done has been to oberve that when our total number of medals for the squad members chosen for a war is over 100k, we are almost immediately matched-up with an all lvl10 ranked 200 or better squad. If we keep our total medal count under 100k, then matchups take a few hours or more, but, tend to be a more even match. One wrinkle we've observed to that is when we have tried to add another of our lvl 10 players. Even if we keep our total medal count under 100k, for some reason, that extra lvl 10 throws us over some threshold and we're back to fighting all lvl10 players in a squad ranked 200 or better. I'm thinking that in that case, our lvl 10 players have too many medals among themselves and that's the threshold that's being tripped. But, this is all speculation. The only thing I've been able to repeat is a consistent lineup with only two of our lvl 10s and a total medal count for all our members participating in the squad war of under 100k. I imagine this is not very helpful, but, I figured I'd attempt to answer your question. Good luck out there.
Thanks for the response!
We had basically given up on having 2 wars a week(1 during midweek and 1 on the weekend), but today we've tried leaving ALL of our level 10s out of matchmaking, and guess what? We just got matched with a squad with 9 lvl 10s....Yes against NONE on our side. FML...
Sure, they're not as crazy maxed out like some of the others we've seen, but still? Thats far from even. Guess we'll see how our guys do against them...they'll have us feeding them lvl 10 troops, but its disappointing to say the least.
It just sucks that we have to weaken ourselves so much, to get THIS kind of match? Its just not right..something needs to be done to fix this, because its unreal how uneven this seems to be for certain unlucky squads, such as ourselves.
