Re: Civil Wars: How's it going?

Post#11 » Tue Oct 04, 2016 10:14 am

We tried a couple of times since the update and got Rebels. On the third attempt we got a civil war vs a considerably disadvantaged Imp squad, lined up to take place later today. Our 11 L10s and 4 L9s vs their 3 L10s, 8 L9s and 4 L8s. I was sort of expecting that with the opening of the matchmaking, that matches would get better.. apparently not. :roll:

Still, the Emperor has deemed these heretics traitors to the Galactic Empire, and thus they must be.. eliminated. :twisted:

Thanks for the replies. Interesting. I thought that selecting the civil war option would only match as such. Apparently it just opens up the pool to both factions? And apparently not much help at that (time wise).

Without the civil war option, we had to wait about a week for a match sometimes 2 weeks. So this is definitely an improvement.

The algorithm probably goes into civil war mode after X amount of hours.
Ios (Empire) SithForceElite (HQ 8+) Sithforceacademy (HQ 8-)
Maxed HQ 10 (cept lvl 32 and 20 dekas)
Ios (Rebel) MiserySquad1E (HQ 9+) MiseryAcademy1E (HQ 9-)
HQ 10

That is my thought we started search and at roughly 24hrs in it matched us with a top 50 Emp squad. So I assume the match making works something like this
1) initial look ideal match - if no match go to 2
2) widen parameters of possible match - if no match go to 3
3) further widen parameters of match making - if no match go to 4
4) if civil war selected seek match up at current parameters for all available contestants - if no match go to 5
5) forget parameters and stick two teams together - have a snickers

In regards to match making our opponet has:
6 full on level 10s
4 mid level 10s (between 9 & 10 0n turrets - SCs ex. are 10)
3 new 10s (mostly lvl 9 turrets)
2 lvl 9s

We decided to let some of our lower guys in this war so we have:
1 nearly full 10
2 mid level 10s
1 new 10
6 level 9s (half solid 9s half new 9s)
2 level 8s
3 level 7s

So yeah match making is real good there :roll:

Wow, I beat we won't see it for ages on Windows. But we usually get matched in seconds (don't ask why), so there's no need for us to take on other imps (well, may be just for the sake of fun).

I wanted to play an empire squad...but cant...3 attempts and we always get a Rebel opp.

HOWEVER...i have no doubt matchmaking got MUCH faster...24h or less...one we got it in 20min...NEVER happened before...

I almost tempted to go to the main forum and give them an ataboy...just not sure if someone actually reads that forum...

I read somewhere that matchmaking is reversed on Windows server...there it is the rebs that have issues...and "need" the civil war thing...

Not sure...just hear say

As a side note...i think Reb bases will have more issues with civil war...imperial bases will PROBABLY handle better the Imperial attack than Reb bases with Reb attack...

Windows server just got an update featuring Civil wars and Armory.
As usual with Disney updates it keeps saying "new update available" but when you download the app it's still the old version.
Should be available soon though.

SQUAD CIVIL WARS (Same-Faction Matchmaking) - Thoughts?

We are anticipating a new iOS/Android Client Update Release today - MAYBE - but while we wait perhaps we could discuss how Players feel about Same-Faction Matchmaking also known as Squad Civil Wars.

Thoughts?? Comments?? :?:

We have been matched with about 4 empire squads now since the update and we have enjoyed it.
Attacking empire bases had meant some slight adjustments in offensive strategy and dealing with Empire Speeders in an SC caught a few of us out the first couple of times. Some of my squad did tweak their defensive layout in readiness for the war but I was relatively happy that my own base layout already made it hard for Empire or Rebel attackers alike.

As stated previously, the biggest plus has been the reduction in time to get a match!! We used to wait a whole week for a match and now we can have 2/3 matches a week!!

All in all happy with the option and hope it is here to stay.
