Still getting lousy matchups , but some are worse than others. In todays match we have put 2 lev10s then a mixture down to lev6.
Our reb enemy is 13 lev10s plus 8s. All of their tens have a higher base score than our best ten. They have dekas lev 35 upwards, even for their lower players.
I have always stated that it is hard for both factions.

Honestly, Squad War Matchmaking is a crapshoot. Plain and simple, every Squad has their own personal mixture of the three options; windshield, bug, or even.

Unless you are a team of all HQ 3's (game minimum) and the ONLY draw you can get is "bug" as "in getting squashed as" - LOL :lol:

Thanks for the info RCM

EDIT:

How do you calculate Base Strength?

i know there is a formula somewhere but can't find it.

And yes FinrodFelagund, I'm convinced that it's just a crapshoot and you just get the next squad that is up next.

Triton999 - Go to KSoD Squad Ranking Website - then search for your Squad - then click on Members - then find your name - look in Base Strength Column for your answer.

Never been in a Squad War? - Then look here.

Thanks DeathStriker

I went to KSod and added up all the base strengths of our team and the opponent:

We had 33,783 vs them with 42,452 total points. So they had 8.669 more.

That dose not sound that close of a match up to me.

So, adding a few more lower level players to our war team with very low strength points will help with finding better match ups? Anyone having better luck doing this?

Thanks!

Triton999 - There is no "formula" for determining what your War Matchmaking will be. Adding a few "lower level" players - say HQ 3 (game minimum) - to your War Party may not change any "Mismatches" you may be seeing.

If you want "Lower Level War Matches" - say 4 Level 8's, 6 Level 7, 3 Level 6's, 2 Level 5's - or something similar, you need to pay attention to the "Upper Level Players" in your War Party (for example top Players are Level 8 or less) since these mostly determine whom you will be matched with (or at least it seems that way).

Good Luck in your next War...

Adding more lower level players may just make it that much harder. Try adding 15 max level 10's instead.

That's what I call a gross mismatch. Kenobi's Command had a long succession of those from April to August. I really think there should be a cap on base score disparity. If it's more than 5000 (where both sides have 10s), the match should not be allowed. I think that squad's without 10s should have a lower maximum discrepancy.

A discrepancy of 6000 or more is the equivalent of having 2 extra fully maxed bases on one side.

However, I can report that since the server upgrade in September, we've been in much fairer Wars. We wait much longer for the match, but I am completely fine with that. I would MUCH rather wait hours, than be instantly matched with all 10s.

In our last (Tako) War, we even had a higher total base score than our oppos!
HQ 10 - 15K medals - Kenobi's Command - L 50 Squad - Max perks - 3 Squad Wars a week

Stop by for Wars, perks and rep points. We're maxed out.
