Our last 2 opponents have had mostly prestige bases with a few 10s sprinkled in. We only have 3 guys in my squad with prestige bases. The rest are begginer 10s and 9s with some 7s, 8s, and 6s sprinkled in. It is not fair and is starting to not be fun.
Your situation is very common, I'm sorry to say.
Once you have 1 or 2 prestige bases in your line up, the matchmaking algorithm seems to assume matches with all prestige squads is fine, whereas in reality, it is not.
DarkRebel has explained the principal reasons why in his post - it's not just the poor algorithm, it's also the falling player numbers resulting in reduced number of War ready squads in the game; and what seems to be the reduced number of squads participating in wars.
At SoD, a squad of almost all prestige bases, we regularly wait hours / days for matches.
I also War in another squad that actively seeks No-OP Wars, The Midnight Mob. Due to the interest in no-OP Wars among elite squads a lot of squads try to War at the times players have organised through this site, and LINE. The Midnight Mob usually matches within 20 minutes, and the matches are pretty fair.
The best advice I can give you is
1) Hang in there. War is definitely one of the best parts of this game, particularly as your base gets stronger.
2) Avoid entering matchmaking during the elite squad No OP time frames.
