Offseason Tanking

I think it’s ridiculous the alliances that tank in offseason get rewarded when season rolls around with easy matchups! My 5M Gold 3 alliance had to go up against a 12M Gold 1 alliance (finished last season) in first war of season. It’s wrong the mismatches to start the first season of this new map getting BLOWN OUT. Our ENTIRE alliance has 1 5/65 champ in whole alliance and almost all of thier attackers were 5/65s. How is that a competitive War?

    Not to worry, at the rate alliances are giving up on this season you may end up in gold 1 by default.

    Unfortunately this is one of the issues there is no perfect fix for. You cant make people win, which in most conversations would sound obsurd. You cant base off of alliance rating as high ranking alliances could just dump 4s and below to adjust their rating. You obviously cant trust war rating.

    Maybe base matchups off of war season standings. You can only match up with alliance in a certain range of your own alliance in the standings? And obviously freeze standings in between seasons.

    But again I'm not sure their is a good solution.

    While I agree there should be punishment it is highly subjective to say obviously tanking.

    Obviously that platinum1 alliance with 0 defenders placed across 3 BGs and 0 attacker kills come end of war tanked.

    But what about a high alliance that puts in all R2 5*s and dies 2 to 3 times per node as they clear whole map to guarantee loss. Cant prove tanking.

    All numbers, ratings, and effort can be rigged. That's why I offered the matchups based off of current season rankings.

    That way high ranking alliances cant hide cause there scared of matchups.

    Easy fix. Offseason should give rewards only, without impact to tier placement or rating. That can remain frozen. Afterall, the season is over. Other option, no wars during offseason. Give a week or two to change ally & recruit.

    And you cant trust the game o monitor anything. I know people who got banned from the game temporarily cause they were winning fight in war with 0 hits.

    They actually had to send in videos of themselves playing with Quake so Kabam would believe them.

    Consider preseason sports. No effect on standings.

    Not really most serious alliance run a shell and tank that during seasons. In single BG mode

    War rating determines matchups in new system. This a dumb response

    This is false. Prestige has been the primary criteria for match making the past 2 seasons. War rating is the second criteria. This is why you have 10m alliances in tier 3/4, they never play against larger alliances with the same war rating.
