I thought matchmaking had improved after a string of fair matches. But then we had one of our worst mismatches. Our War Party's total base score was 31,860. The Imp War Party's total base score was 43,434! They were 136% of our base score.
I have entered all the data Pirate has been asking for below:
Data | Squad (imp) | Squad (reb) | SSRO
WPAHQ | 10 | 8.8 | +14%
WPAM | 80,229 | 7,193 | +115%
WPBS | 2,896 | 2,124 | +36%
WPABS | 12,161 | 2,714 | +448%
SAHQ | 9.72 | 7.4 | +31%
SAM | 71,695 | 4,961 | +144%
SBS | 2,768 | 1,706 | +62%%
SABS | 10,678 | 2,027 | +526%
MMT | less than 10 seconds
I think this demonstrates that medals have no effect on matchmaking.
Pirate, if you want to increase you data pool, I suggest you make the data easier to enter, and ask for less data. Colours are great, but it was VERY fiddly to enter, even with copying and pasting your example as a template. It took me 30 minutes to enter this data and I'm not sure how often I'll have time for that.
The 'adjusted' scores (e.g. WPABS = (WPAM*0.00004 +0.99)+WPBS) are also too complicated to ask most people to enter. You're better off asking for the scores, and then doing a calculation in a spreadsheet, posted / displayed in the first post in the thread, if you still want medal data. Of course, if you agree that medals don't matter for War matchmaking, this won't be a problem any more, as those lines of data will go.

You must do what you think is right, of course.
