Where is the rivalry for mid-level squads? This is a question I've been asking myself as we complete another war against a different opponent. So we are a mid-level squad and, in the 100 wars that we've had, we've only played one other squad twice. It would be nice to have a peer group to compete with since rivalries are part of the fun. Even if you define a peer group, you have no control over who you will get matched with for war.
It would be great to say "next time we will beat squad X" or "Squad Y just moved up in the rankings", but that is not possible when it comes to the many mid-level squads. Sure, you can look at the war rankings on KOD, but these are useless for squads that war once per week as they seem to favor squads that war continuously.
I think that peer competition is an important part of the game that is missing. Have any other mid-level squads struggled with the issue/question? How do you define your peers?
