Good suggestion, I will bear in mind next time.
Also, I recall reading ages ago in a thread that the longer a squad waits to match the broader the match criteria become, hence if the high level squad we have just come up against had been waiting quite a while it starts looking for lower level squads to match against.

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.


We are the squad of maxed out 10s. I just want to be able to war. That's two nights now of sitting in matchmaking with no match.

That sucks, my friend. Have you tried entering matchmaking at the times identified on KSOD for Elite Squads?

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

The matchmaking system is probably waiting for us Imps and our level 10 base, down to 7s to request a war. We usually get all the tens against us. Lol

WHY CAN'T WE GET MATCHED?

Restarting this Topic due to an increasing number of incidents where some Squads are not getting Matched instantly or within a reasonable wait time like 2 to 4 hours.

CASE IN POINT: Sons_of_Death, a Rebel Squad with mostly Prestige Level Players, using both Empire Only -or- Empire and Rebels (using Same Faction Option) Picks / Initiations, has recently seen multiple Wars with over 24 hours before a Match was made.

This extreme delay in Matching often results in problems in War due to the lack of War Party Members being available.

War Party Members sign-up / commit to being in War when they have time (like on the weekend). HOWEVER... due to the extreme delays these same War Party Members now often find they are in a War during a time when Jobs, and other "plans" like Vacation, prevent them from helping out in War as much as they would like.

The continued rise in the number of cases of Squads waiting to be Matched for extensive amount of times has led to War Apathy, where some Squad have stopped Warring (further aggravating the problem), and perhaps the rise of No-OP Wars which in part try to fix the Long War Matchmaking by flooding the War Servers with timed War Initiations in the hope of a Quick Match (which also adds to the problem by not making Squads Available except on certain days).

I don't have any solutions, but though I would restart the conversation to see what others think...

my squad is experiencing same issue,some days ,mostly mondays is impossible to match ,we even waited for 36 hrs once being matched tuesday night....
But the problem matching problem exist even during the pre chosen days for no outposts wars ,with more them 20 squads starting wars and many of them not getting matched and waiting in queue for 6/10 hrs before matching ,so the issue is not about the nr of squads available or their lvl since the squads in nt80 or forcematching are more or less at same stages of development therefore it has to an algorithm problem.
I also sent a ticket to Disney ,their answer was they know about the problem and they are working to fix it....that was one month ago.
I guess there is no gain in fixing war MM so they don't give a s...t

We have had more even matches since the downtime. I would rather wait than have a bad match.

My IMP squad has been matched instantly for a while now, before and after the update.

Lack of IMP participation is likely the reason for long wait for rebs.
