I’ve searched for topics and found a lot back in 2018, but nothing recently.
How is war-matchmaking set up now?
The last 6 wars we’ve had, 4 have been vs. Russian teams. In each instance, the Russian defence showing pre-war is a collection of 3 and 4 star heroes, with few players in Diamond.
When war starts, they’re war defence is fully maxed 5* heroes. In each case, our team is overwhelmed. We are a teaching alliance, so while we have 6-9 top teams that reside in Diamond and a few players who are regulars in the top 10, we also have 6-10 teams in gold or silver with 3*s for defence. We’re getting matched with teams who’s weakest player is stronger than half our team.
Is it our structure that’s the problem?
Is it cup dropping?
Is it matchmaking RNG?
Why is it that Russian teams seem to be set on cup dropping? Just coincidence? Residual habit from an old system?
Right now our team is in a fairly big squabble about cup-dropping, with half insisting it’s the way to go, and others (including me) not at all convinced of that fact, given that we’ve dropped 5000 cups or so, and our war-score has actually increased (assuming that’s because people are levelling heroes)
Please offer insight/help/advice or chocolate…
