Ok, sometimes the matchmaking is spot on, sometimes it is way off. It’s really demoralizing to the losing side, especially when it was an unwinnable war.
My idea is to give the losing side one or even two bonus points toward their war loot chest IF and ONLY IF all their alliance members in the war use ALL their war hits. At least it will keep alliances or individual alliance members from throwing in the towel.
Plus, I think it is a fair consolation prize since the opponent was beyond the alliance’s control.
