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?

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
