Squad rank on ksod site off?

Post#1 » Sat Dec 16, 2017 10:39 am

Okay so I've complained about war matchmaking in the past, but it does seem to much improved, and thats not what this discussion is about.

Like many other squads, mine uses the Squad war ranking site(http://ksod.us/squadranking) to get a better idea of who we're up against. Our current match up looks tough, and they're clearly favored, but I think we'll hold our own, but look at their ranking in comparison to ours.

Them: http://ksod.us/squad/4670b105-26c2-11e6 ... 3280004f5c

Us: http://ksod.us/squad/400615b7-4722-11e7 ... e7/history

We're ranked much higher than them, and I'm not sure why. They have higher leveled players, and a better war record. Anyone care to guess why they're rank is so low? Has anyone come across rankings for squads that don't seem to make sense?

ksod is useful for looking at the other squad's war history, and how many uplinks they tend to take and defend. I don't have much confidence in the squad rankings, though. My squad is on a 24 war win streak, but usually ranks lower than the squads against who we are matched, even when those squads rarely win.

So played in a few squads now with HIGH end HQ10 players but they keep their medal count exceptionally low. This skews the rankings and gives them easier match ups

According to KSOD pages above, these 2 squads (KoreanEmpire and JediJumpCrew) don’t seem to face each other, and KoreanEmpire only had 13 players. Your squad (JediJumpCrew) was shown as facing another squad (1st_ORDER2). What are the names of the squads again ?

DR ... you are responding to something from last December when they did, in fact, meet.

BTW ... standard reply here.

If you like your ranking: KSOD is really good and you can learn alot about your opponent and what kind of squad they are.

If you DON'T like your ranking: The rankings don't mean anything! I mean, we have won 75 wars in a row (against garbage) and are still ranked below people who have lost!!

Darn, I got bitten by the dead thread resurrection thing again :(
Should pay more attention to the date.
Thanks Midge.
