my MM experience has been the exact opposite. Every war we've started in the last couple ofweeks has taken less that 2 min to match. Also, matchups have been relatively even.

Hi All.
Posting on this thread rather than create a new one.
Over the weekend squad war matchmaking has been taking ages. Normally when I initiate I get a match within a few minutes. The last two nights it was searching for an hour before I cancelled (on the basis that our squad would prefer to start/end early evening rather than midnight or some other random time).
Just wondered if anyone else has had any matchmaking issues recently?

I started this Topic, but the most recent War for Death_Striker was matched immediately (probably due to the large amount of visiting HQ 10 Accounts).

I have seen long matchmaking in the Past and there does not seem to be a reason for it other than the Squad Wars equivalent of "Can Not Find Opponent" where you don't get an alert just a very long time before being matched.

OK, thanks, just thought I would check. I will keep trying to match. I was thinking maybe less squads warring due to extended Christmas break, hopefully will get a match soon.

We've been sitting in matchmaking for an hour now. All of our matches have been instant before.

I strongly advise you to embrace the wait. When this was raised as an issue before, and the devs acted on it, they dramatically reduced the criteria for an 'acceptable match'. It led to maxed out 10s being matched with squads with one 10, or a selection of 9s.

Squads with maxed out 10s are also likely to be highly organised and EVERY one of their War Party will have all of the planets unlocked and be able to take and retake any outpost at any level. That's a War winning advantage by itself.

In an ideal world we'd all like an instant match with a similar squad. In the real world we must have compromises. Embrace the wait. It's the lesser of the two evils.

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

in my experience, if you're not a maxxed out squad, like using mixes of 10/9/8/7's...usually when you have to wait more than 10 minutes, you get an awful match against a top 100 squad... best to cancel and try again if not matched within minutes...

We have been matching in 5 or 10 minutes for last few weeks, but yesterday took several hours and we matched against a mega team of level tens. Some matches are better than others, lol.
