My alliances current war has us with 26 members going up against another alliance with 27 members. This gives the other team an advantage of 6 extra attacks, why did this happen?
If there are 1001 alliances with 26 members opted in, only 1000 can get matched against an even opponent. 1 has to fight an opponent with more or less members.
In theory wouldn’t that make them worth higher points?
No, there are always 1500 points distributed (by health points, not team strength) to all players on the field
