From this Forum here is my understanding of how War Scores are calculated.
The WAR SCORE (WS) is a mathematical function of:
- Top 5 heroes per OPTED IN player
- Top 30 heroes per OPTED IN player
- Top 5 troops per OPTED IN player
- Personal war history for last 20 wars per OPTED IN player
Facts I am aware of:
Since WS is based on individual war history the majority of our participating members would have a 20 war history of 4 wins and 16 losses and one of those wins was only due to the fact that the opposing Alliance left 40 Flags to our 5 Flags.
Even though the WS’s are the same the opponent’s teams on the Battleground are always 200 to 300 TP greater than ours (this has been the case eight matchups in a row now).
I am using the assumption that the on Battleground Team Powers should on average give a good approximation of how good each players heroes are. You could argue that bench strengths vary tremendously but I would find this hard to explain as the opposing Alliance we are facing is always 3 to 7 Levels higher on average than our members who are participating in the War. While there might be an anomaly that impacts one matchup, we are now going on eight straight mismatches in a row. I have read a significant number of Forum posts including developer response (107) and none really answer this mismatch question.
I appreciate the responses to my previous posts but I am really looking for an answer from SG Staff or Developer that will help me make sense of this.
Our current matchup is one of the most lopsided in the past eight that I have tracked. In the current War both sides have 19 teams. The total defensive team power of the opposing side (Sonnige Lowenbande BS) is 74,257 while our total Battleground TP is 68,066. This is a staggering 325 power on average per Team! While I cannot see the bench strength of either side, I would assume they would have a similar weighted value on average per player (some higher and some lower). Based on our individual members war history I am sure our WS modifier is near 0.
So here are my questions if anyone or an SG Developer can help me out:
How do you explain that we are consistently matched against so much stronger Teams on average?
How do we rearrange or structure our Alliance/members/Heroes so we start getting such lopsided matchup in our favor?
I would love to have such a numerical strength edge when battling and opposing team. We would be the ones winning 7 or 8 instead of losing 7 of 8.
I can only assume that there is some significant issue with the way War Scores are calculated as we continually are matched against significantly stronger Alliances.
As stated earlier I would appreciate a response from SG Staff or Development.
Your time and consideration of this request is appreciated.
