My own view for war (and pvp) is that hq should be the only factor in the algorithm. So in pvp , a lev8 should face a lev8. If someone has only just upgraded hq, then they should be facing more developed bases but of same hq lev and expect to be hit hard.
For war, total up all 15 HQs.
It would stop sandbagging and some of the silly matches we get now.
Totally agree - in my Imp squad - three prestige, one L10 and then a few L9 and all the way down to L4 squad got matched to all prestige or 12 prestige and three "low" level (10-8) bases in the last couple of squad wars. And for some of these, we are talking L50 Droidekas for many of their bases.
While some were ranked lower than us, they all got to us, and the more often this match up happens, the less motivated everyone is.
Wars used to be fun when matched to more or less even base score / level bases. This way, everyone had a target to attack but now our lower level bases mostly have little to do except for get OP early on (if you have the planet) and on the other squad every player can take pretty much every OP even at max level. Even trying a blitz often ends abruptly when all OP are back and higher level players have to decide between getting the OP or trying to attack.
