I have read several hundred posts including the FAQ and Alliance War Matchmaking Change Log. I am fairly certain I understand the basis used for calculation of the Alliance War Score. Here are the particulars that I am aware of. Regarding January 3 Alliance War between the Wisconsin Wolf Pack and cesko. I totaled the Team Powers from the Battleground which should give a good indication of the 5 strongest heroes and troops used in War Score calculation. Totaled the Levels of Alliance Members participating in the War. This should give a relative idea of bench depth as 30 top heroes used for War Score calculation. Our historical War performance won 5 then lost 4 in a row so it should be fairly neutral to War Score.
Details: We had six of the 23 Teams in the war below Level 30 with four defense Team Powers (TP) below 3000. They had no members below Level 30 and all TP in War were 3800+.
Total Def Team Powers on Battleground and War Score:
cesko 93,691 War Score: 51,112
Wisconsin Wolf Pack 85,590. War Score: 53,358
Difference is Total Defensive Team Power is 8,100 or 352 points greater for each defensive team.
I also summed the Levels of participating members.
cesko 1,125 Levels
Wisconsin Wolf Pack 952 Levels
This is a difference for 7.5 Levels/member participating in the War.
My question for SG: How can our War Scores be higher than theirs?
All the metrics used for calculating War Score would indicate cesko should have a significantly higher War Score or Wisconsin Wolf Pack should be significantly lower. I ask that you please check into this and let me know what metric or bug is leading to the disparity in War Score when all known details would indicate cesko should have a significantly higher War Score than the Wisconsin Wolf Pack.
Your time and consideration of this matter is greatly appreciated.
