    Your war ratings are identical Much like this being the 100th matchmaking thread made on this since war began. It's completely fair.

    Didn't you read the announcement? Kabam Joe implemented a new matchmaking system called updog, you can read all about it here .

    did I just get rickrolled?

    This is crazy Kabam. Sure war rating is close, but come on, my alliance prestige is what, 10x higher?

    wars should be based on war rating. there will be a transition period but it's for the greater good

    And you're not outraged that a 900 prestige alliance had a 2000 war rating before this season?
    At this point I don’t know what to think.

    @QuikPik and @Skunc - I can't find the post now, but it was admitted that under the prior system an alliance of just 3*s would never fight a tougher team but would continue to always match similar prestige teams, regardless of their rating.

    So you could get a 1k to 2k prestige alliance getting high gold or plat rewards and never have to fight a challenging team. It was wrong..

    Thing is @Skunc until these changes they were the ones taking your rewards but never having to face you, the system was broken this is a correction, and it’s going to be ugly for a few wars at least, but will end up fairer than the system that gave 900 prestige alliances and 10k prestige alliances like mine silver 1 rewards, we ran 3bg all season, used boosts and resources and have spent years ranking up 5/65 defenders. For silver 1 rewards, ie 3* and 4* shards

    @Moosetiptronic Oh I know, I've been pointing out the flaws in prestige match making for several seasons. I even created a test alliance that is 3k that got to tier 4 just to show how broken it is.

    as others have said it was due to a previously broken unfair matchmaking system that has allowed small alliances to climb up higher than larger alliances where they did not belong.

    now the matchmaking algorithm is changed there will be some bad matchups while the system corrects itself.

    An alliance with 900 prestige finished in silver 1 last season?? My god, it’s worse than I thought.

    Getting T2a, T4b and 5* shards as rewards but don’t even have max 4*??

    Wow. I knew it was bad but I didn't know it was that bad.

    It’s almost like people can’t read these days.

    There will be an adjustment period while war ratings correctly settle. Some fights are going to be equal, some are going to be horrendous and some are going to be a cake walk. By the end of the season it should have all settled properly.

    At least you’re not playing someone who cleared out your node 23 NF with a R1 4* Sunspot...(tier 2 war btw). Needs to be harder to mod
