PvP Matchmaking - Crazy and Unbelievable Matches

SithVicious ...

  1. Skipped because of Attack Loadout at time and uncertainty of SC Units

      (Any? Yes/No? ... possible 40 UC)
  2. Skipped because it was during Questionable Cargo (Rogue One #3) Event and I needed EP.
  3. Death Striker is Leader of Death_Striker and my 3rd Account.
Hope that answers your questions...

I'm seeing that you've never played SWC on Windows, DS... If you'd played like me and many here for years, you'd have that same experience multiplied. While I was Rebel and I left Tatooine for Hoth, my first planet unlocked, my base level 5 was combined with hell beasts level 9 and 10 maxed out (I'm not talking about minis but full bases), and had to attack anyway for the great loot and to try to add 1 more out of 20 stars (yes, 20) to get out of that hell and back to Tatooine, where matchmaking was less stupid, but even there, levels 5 or 6 did not escape being attacked by level 9 or 10 beasts.

The thing was less bad on Android, when I started my Rebel base almost 2 years ago, but since some time ago, the criterion used by the Devs only worsened the combination of results, and for this Event it is not being different from what was for past events.

Currently, my Rebel base level 9 is being combined with baby bases level 6 and 7 and some sandbags level 9 with defenses level 4-5, while my Rebel base level 8 is being combined with maxed out levels 10 all the time. The only base that is currently being matched with bases of the same level is my mini base level 7, while it is a mini (746 of BS) and 14k medals, the high amount of medals outweighs the low BS and is offering rivals of my level, which is easy get 3 stars because my attack is strong and my armory is well fitted.

Another thing that is interfering in matchmaking is the large amount of minis with extremely low BS and high quantity of medals. I see this every day in wars with my Rebel squad. More and more players are realizing that they can manipulate matchmaking by controlling the strength of their defenses and the amount of medals, regardless of their HQ level and the strength of their attack and equipment in Armory.

I myself have been testing various combinations of base strength and medals for the last months to try to understand the matchmaking and try to control my enemy levels, but honestly I believe that the Devs have thrown out all the algorithms used for matchmakings and after the introduction of this Event system, everyone is being combined with players 3-4 levels above and 3-4 levels below, and save yourself if you can....

mkenobi - No I never played on Windows (as I am a Mac User) and have only had iOS Devices.

While my Max HQ 10 Account is enjoying the HQ 6 Bases to munch on while EP Grinding and Elite Crate Chasing, I too believe that Matchmaking should be based upon HQ Level first followed by "other" Factors.

But the current MM is what it is, so "horror stories" and "outright laughter" about what Players experience will continue...

I've only had these kind of matches on Tat. Every other planet is 99% 1-level difference for me.
Tat has only changed in the last month or so as well. My HQ9 base matched a HQ 4 or 5 (it's been so long since I've seen that level, I couldn't tell) a couple of days ago. Needed EP....sorry.

Doubt if match making algorithm has changed.
It’s the EP requirement that caused players to move to the planets which gave them the best chance of getting max points using least effort. Add on to that, classic unit frags are not very interesting for active players so they don’t even care about winning defense
