Why is my team ranked at 663, getting matched with top level teams

Post#1 » Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:57 am

I would like to ask Disney or the game, why is my team ranked 663 being matched with teams in the top 100. We have a group that is from level 6 to 10. The teams we have been matched with lately have been level 10s. This is a unfair advantage to the opposing team. We do our best which turns out to be not good enough against this level of opponent. The matchmaking is flawed.

My guess is that you're an IMP and referring to war match ups? Does it usually take a long time to find a match?

If so, it's a consequence of there being a huge pool of IMP squads that war and a smaller pool of Rebel squads. If you cannot be matched with an appropriate opponent (based on rankings, base scores of your war party, etc) within a certain time, the matchmaking opens up to increase the likelihood of a match, but also higher likelihood of you pairing with a team that is over/under powered.

My old old IMP squad kept matching up with stacked Rebel squads composed of all lv 10 bases. We usually were made up of 7 lv 10s, 5 lv 9s and the rest 8 or below. We only stood a chance if the other squad had enough inactive players. We just had too many low level freebies to play up and win. We didn't have any exceedingly high base scores (I think at the time all of use were under 40k medals)

When we would do dual faction wars, matching improved a bit and most of our wars were closer matches.

If I am missing something let me know. I am still perplexed as to why this happened.

The rankings have nothing at all to do with Disney matchmaking also, that is our own flawed but fun creation.

I lead a rebel squad, we are 663. Matched a imp no. 76 last week and I think this last team was like 113. I lead Rogue Elite 2, we are allied with 4 other teams. It seems to happen when the game matches quickly. This matchup is all level 10s. Sometimes the other teams we fight are rebels as well. We stay at war. I appreciate your reply.

We are ranked 2900 and we are getting matched within the top 100. We have 4 level 10s and our last opponent had 11 level 10s. Just not winnable. I’ve been dumping medals to see if it’ll start evenly matching us again. I’ve got about 500 more medals to dump before we get into another war.

In disney's support I found the following:

Why am I being matched up with a stronger opponent?

There are various reasons you can be matched against a higher ranked Commander:

You have a high medal count for a Commander of your level.
There are very few Commanders around your level.
You're on a planet with a low population.
You've skipped many potential battles.
A large number of Commanders are currently online and can't be attacked until they're offline. This can occur near the end of conflicts when a large number of players are online.

Here are ways to improve your matchmaking:

Prepare your resources for moves to planets with higher populations. Tap Play, then select the Galaxy Map to see which planets currently have higher populations.
Don't skip battles against opponents near your level.
Battle during times when other Commanders are less likely to be online.

That's for pvp matchmaking, though.
