War is Killing Us. What are you thinking?

This latest release is pitting us against very active alliances that have a team score more than 12,000 greater than us. The result is demoralization of our team with reluctance to participate in an obviously losing war. Please please fix this algorithm problem.

Sorry also meant to know that relative individual team member powers were collectively higher. We have had two wars since the release and they are both like this. HELP!!!
