If you are a rebel squad and you have players between level 4 and 9, you can get a war matchup in under 30 minutes and often an instant matchup now. As long as you use the data on the gsow.net site. Pretty effective. You can supplement that lineup with one level 10, if that base is not maxed out. E.g. closer to a level 9 in base score. Really helps our lower level players get into wars, and sets up nicely since you can control the start time with much more precision. I don't know what the medal threshold for the squad lineup is, but based on what I am seeing, it's about 225K to 250K. Anything higher and you might be rolling the dice a bit. I try to include just the players with medal counts under 30K. I might experiment more down the road.
In these matchups, the Carbonite squads tend to have total medal counts under 100K with a higher total base score of 30K to 40K. Our team base score for our low HQ lineup is usually in the low 20K range. There's a trade-off for our higher medal count.
Squad Level: 50
We are always looking for active players. We have a squad of 25+ members, and we war twice a week. We have maxed out our Perks. We like helping new players, so all players are welcome!
