Just seen Guardians Ascending’s latest "match"making against another Russian alliance. Same old, same old.
Their 14th ranked player Ban(backwards)ëk has a 3415 defence team. Our number 14 has one of 2860. Their number 11 is level 44. Ours is 25.
Guess how many +3000 players they have compared to us. Guess what the outcome of tomorrow’s war will be.
Guess how motivated our newer players are going to be to participate in future wars. We have already lost one.
Oh, and they are also not “perhaps” a new league - that level 11 has been around for 160d.
DEVs ARE YOU THERE? Can someone take a look at the components of the war score of Guardian’s Ascending’s current opponent to try to find the source of the anomaly. They MUST have hugely robust rosters.
I retract the title in my OP somewhat. Perhaps some alliances have found a way to “hack” the matchmaking algorithm, because sometimes the war score is super fair and leads to exciting contests. In the past 6 wars, 2 have been like that. The other 4 have been a sad joke.
