There used to be same faction wars, but the last one is well over one year ago. My squad had quite a few in its day, but I think this option only exists in memory.

DarthBratzzznew - The "Option" still exists when you Pick / Initate War but getting a "Same Faction Match" is another matter entirely.

Supposily this "Feature" will speed up Matchmaking, but my experience has been that I have never been Matched with a Rebel Squad and there has been no "improvement" to the latest "lag" in getting Matched (seems it is getting longer and longer - but perhaps that is just me).

my smaller base gets matched with rebel vs rebel quite often lately, i'd say 50% the last month or so. our squad has a big mix of members from a few high lvl 10s to 3s... we have to wait many hours for a match normally

That is probably because there are fewer rebel squads out there DS... My guess is that this feature only functioned for Imp squads, though rebels could tick the box. Not sure.
Maybe a nice Question of the Day:
Have there ever been rebel vs rebel wars? :?:

Skip that one just red the post above :lol:

I 've been in a couple of "civil" wars with another rebel squad but was months ago. Last few months, we get matched almost instantly with tough imp squads. We have a great team but not strong enough to fight againsts squads of mostly maxed 10s yet :). My guess is that (as an interpretetion of ksod stats as well) is that the current MM system has driven to formation of new squads from experienced players that still do wars and others for casual players who don't and therefore not registered in ksod. Of course there are still squads that do wars for the sake of it without expectations but have only seen such on the rebel side and not matched against an imp one. I agree that a NO OP option would be much more realistic and useful.

Sons_of_Death (SOD) Squad was just matched for a Same Faction Squad War (Rebel vs Rebel).

This brings up the question, just how many Squads out there make use of this SWC "Feature" and how everyone feels about attacking another Squad that is part of their Faction?

Well, in over 150 wars my squad had the first match against another rebel squad, after 6 hrs of MM, personaly i would prefer empire squad in Mm, but seem like more and more players are quitting the game.

This is not a good sign about the health of the game,imo...
