Per - The "Rank" you see displayed is an indication of Victories won by the Player.

The number of Victories (sum of Total Attacks Won + Total Defenses Won) you need to increase in Rank increases as you progress upward. After 100 Victories you gain the Rank of 1 and your Faction Icon changes (you see this also done in the Conflict Leaderboard) . Currently Level 31 is the Max Rank (see Top 50 Players).

The Players Rank has no direct effect on PvP Matchmaking but those with higher Level Rank more often than not have a higher Level of Medals which does effect PvP Matchmaking.

Hope this help answer your question...

Medal Count and your Base Score. If you search on the forum, there are several threads and spreadsheets showing how many points each building is worth at each level you build.

Both are used to figure out your PvP match pool.

Per - there is more to the PvP Matchmaking Algorithm than simply Medals. It includes what Level your Structures are and how "tight" or "loose" the current MM is set to.

It's because of his medal count. If he loses them all, he'll be paired with 7's most likely.

Rank does effect matchmaking slightly. Observe the opponents and frequency of attack when you go up rank without any change to base score. I've seen both opponent skill and attack frequency increase the last 3 ranks I've increased.

Rank does not affect matchmaking, but medals do. You likely gained quite a few medals while gaining those 3 ranks.

Nope, I keep medals low (<1000) on one of my bases, and no structure upgrades. The only parameter that changed was rank and there was a noticeable difference in opponents:
Attacked frequently compared to days of non-attacks on any planet
Opponents went from unbuffed troops to buffed flyers

To add to this, I can even control matchmaking via medal cut-offs.
For this base, at 1300 medals I see live, easy bases compared to cupcake/dead bases.
At 3000 medals, bases start getting decent GR defense.
At 5000 medals I see near equivalent strength bases.
