I don’t think this is the Gist/ intent of the thread/ change you are referencing…
To Clue-In everyone else;
APL = Active Players Lounge -> don’t ask me, I don’t know how you get in lol
The “change” in question here is a SMALL change to the way that War Matchmaking is done in terms of “excluding” a match.
Essentially the change was to change the matchmaking mechanic to exculde opponents that you have met in the past 5 wars.
Previously I believe it was excluding alliances you met in the past 4 wars.
The Justification / Reason
There are only a handful of alliances which have met the “War Cap” at ~135,000 points on the war score. This results in War Matchmaking previously matching the same alliances with each other over-and over and over again with no variety.
With the change, essentially all it was designed to do is give some more variety…
Not defending the change, just clueing everyone in on the context & what the change was.
For what it’s worth, I personally don’t care nor can I really comment (as it doesn’t apply to me in the slightest)… War Chests are wholely underwhelming in rewards given… I mean you get (essentially) 2 rolls at ~25% chance of getting a 4* material (get better & more frequent odds from 14* titans they are killing) and a single roll at some emblems (agian, get better & more frequent rolls from the rare titans they are killing once a week or so).
