    You got to be kidding kabam, is unfair the war between my alliance and one of 41 million
    You have to fix that

    Based on war rating, it’s as fair as can be. Or were you benefitting from Plat rewards for the past 10 seasons and can’t fight other alliances ranked in the SAME tier as you?
    And even the prestige difference doesn’t make it an impossible match-up, at 9k I‘m guessing all the attackers are r4 if not r5 low sig. They can still play better than their opponents.

    wait can someone explain why the old system was based off prestige? I don't think I was really on the forums when that was changed. I'm sure there's a reason for it, but I can't think of one. Doesn't really make sense to me. if you win a war, you increase your war rating, but you continue to be matched based off prestige? again, someone may have mentioned it, but I don't understand it lol. I'd appreciate if someone could explain. thanks in advance

    I'm sure there are things kabam could have done better in this situation. They could have explained more about the implications for those who had inflated ratings and were going to be sh*t on for half the season. They could have extended the off season so people had more time to adjust their ratings. Even with this method, people would still have lost many wars and either way, their season rewards would have been the same after a season, so I don't think that would have matterwd wither. I still haven't seen any major differences in approach that anyone had said on this thread that would make sense. again, kabam could have

    Man people are really crying over losing to alliances becuase they have an inflated rating.
    Suck it up and move on, you are clearly not meant to play at that level.

    It was based off prestige to try and eliminate shell alliances and tanking.

    @Mauled That is mighty big of you. Not many on here react positively to this change especially when it may negatively impact them.

    just tell your ally to continue signing up for war, but not to waste any items. eventually, you'll get fair matches

    also, matchmaking based on win percentage will be hilarious. bronze 4 ally that has a roughly 50% win rate with no uncollected players against a plat 2 ally. theoretically, everyone should have a winrate of 50% eventually because the system will fix itself

    Alliance we are facing same war rating, same rewards last season they cannot even get to section 2. This will be interesting my ally may get into platinum this season as a top 250 aq I had no idea how bad matchmaking was previously.

    Now people get to see how bad sig 200, mojo, domino thing doom are.

    I just want to say personally that I love these changes. I was in a 42 million alliance and stuck in gold 2 because I would get matched up with opponents who have the same rating as me yet 20 million alliances got plat 4 and plat 3 rewards. It was laughable.

    yeah i first started trying to brng attention to this issue back 2 years ago when it seemed to begin happening....
    people originally tried to brush it off as not happening...

    i saw it in the early stages, tried to bring attention to it, kabam did nothing, they let it goe, and fester.
    alliances have been climbing for 2 years fighting prestige wars wars.
    low allies climbing up high,
    big allies stuck low....

    it has gone on too long.
    it makes sense the little allies re crying cus now they are gunna get the low rewards they deserve, and finally the bigger allies will get the bigger rewards they deserve.

    the world where a 5mil ally gets gold 1 while a 40mil ally gets gold 3 are finally going to be over.
    its a good time for war matchmaking.
    lets all suck up some potentially hard matches for a season and then we can begin to see how we all rank fairly against eveyone.

    So my ally plays only occasisonal aw.
    But how is Our current war fair for Our opponent?
    We did both bronce 3 last season. There is no place for retired allys then?
    We only Do 5-7 wars per season.




    I am in the 9K Prestige ally. The others got destroyed by Our first defender. It's an easy war yes. Fun... Not so. Fair? Not at all.

    Lets See where the new matchmaking leads us to.

    We pride ourself in taking lower level people and helping them grow u build up better members that way they tend to stick around longer play better and it great for the community but how the hell are u suppose to progress in AW when ur going up vs a alliance that is gold 2 and we are silver 1 and there is a 500k average player difference this is stupid and Kabam has to fix match making
