Mini Base Matchmaking

Post#1 » Mon Feb 03, 2020 6:24 pm

Mini base mm

I have a mini with 5k medals. I have been attacked by players with 72k medals and 24k medals. Isn't this odd for mm or is it because I'm camping on Erkit and maybe their base score is lower than one would think it would be?

Don't camp on erkit. Go to Hoth or a green planet.

What is the level of your mini? I have a mini Imperial HQ 8 with 1,500 medals and a BS of HQ 4. I keep this base on Tatooine where I am attacked by HQ 4 with Level 2-3 troops. If I go outside Tat, I start to find mini bases like mine or higher, and they can find me.

Matchmaking on Kit is strange, and most of the time bizarre. My maxed out Rebel Prestige can find Prestige sandbaggings and HQ 8, 9 and 10 if I keep skipping too many bases. I don't hesitate in attack these bases for the 150 EP.

If you are Imperial mini, stay on Tatooine where matchmaking is a little bit more reasonable, or go to a green. I don't recommend Hoth, is a nightmare where everyone only attacks with Tauntaun/INT 4 and Cold MHC/HFDs. :lol:

Yes, population count and faction demographics are probably the big culprit. The current gsow stats by planet are:

Planets__________________Empire____________Rebel____________Combined_______
Tatooine_________________87,123____________52,817_____________139,940_______
Dandoran________________12,017_____________5,085______________17,102_______
Er'Kit______________________219______________210_________________429________
Yavin_____________________331_______________217_________________548________
Hoth____________________10,385_____________4,129______________14,514_______
Takodana_________________6,875_____________2,249_______________9,124_______

With only 429 players on Er'kit, you can see where any matchmaking algo would be forced to expand the search or go to dev bases. There's also revenge attacks, so you might want to check your attack log to see if you attacked them.

Lvl 7. I do not have Hoth unlocked just for those reasons. Thank you

I think there have been some changes to pvp mm as well. Last night i matched a player with 12k medals but he was a full Prestige base, i have 167k medals on my main. So it appears base score is a bigger part of mm than before. Which i think it great actually. Allows for more bases to be available to attack and might cut down on players UG to Prestige too soon.

Hi buddy, I hope you found a home after your visit to my squad.

I have two mini imperials:

Mini HQ 8 "feeder" = 1,500 medals, with 2 level 1 turrets, 1 refinery/market 1, no traps, no shields, no trade ports, everything else maxed out and BS 610 = what matches it with HQ4. It only finds Mega Loot Dev bases on all planets and Live mini bases outside of Tatooine.

Mini HQ 8 = 30k medals, with 2 turrets level 1, 5 refineries/markets level 6, no traps, no trade ports, everything else maxed out, including 3 shields and walls, and BS 735 = what should match it with HQ 5-6, but due to 30k medals, it finds Live bases from full HQ 7 to Prestige sandbaggings, and Mega Loot Dev bases on green planets, where the Rebel population is small.

As you run a mini with only 2 level 1 turrets and no traps, you can continue to collect medals and drive matchmaking crazy. Once you build a few extra turrets, even at level 1, they push you into matchmaking of stronger rivals.

I had a mini Rebel HQ 9. At some point I built 4 turrets and went with 6 towers level 1, even without traps, when the Prestige was released, it started to find only full Prestige Live bases. Dump medals to 25k didn't help at all. I dropped that base in limbo. I believe that these 6 Level 1 turretss ruined my mini experience with this base.

Or maybe at HQ 9, as you are closer to the max level, matchmaking throws you in the range of prestige bases, more if you were HQ 8. I will keep my imperial minis at HQ 8 for safety.

With my base I can find level 6 bases on some planets like Hoth and the green planets . In tatooine and erkit it is difficult for me to find them, although in erkit sometimes ... I can also find them,but only in some weird ocassions.
