Why would an alliance want to lose a war on purpose ?

We are fighting another alliance and while we are Silver 2 and they are Silver 1strength wise they are almost the same as us. But for some reason they just put in low level four stars and even three stars in defense . I don’t get it . Why would they want to lose?

    Also there’s minimal 5* shards even for losing, so it’s possible they’re just entering war for that. Not sure how it affects war rating though considering how Kabam has changed matchmaking

    To save resources if a desired position is locked in.

    either to get a better start next season or to just get some tiny amount of rewards

    We do it for the loyalty of for those that wanna practice a certain fight ... defense is less then normal ... attack usually either a Bosh rush - or whatever is needed to practice that fight the best way as possible (t4 so locked war rating )

    cause in Normal map during the season they'd wipe the floor with other scrub silver tier teams but if they started in intermediate or higher they'd run the risk of running into someone else with the same idea and get 50/50 results, which leads to lower scoring opportunities.

    so, tanking. works wonders, 100%

    Tanking. All Ratings should be frozen. Not just T1-5.

    It could be tanking. Of course it could be any number of other reasons too. Perhaps they would just prefer to use their champs for content. Maybe it's just to practice. Or get some shards. I mean it could be anything. Automatically presuming nefarious motives if a bit presumptuous don't you think?

    I do agree though that war rating should be frozen at all levels. No reason not to really.

    What happens in the off-season stays in the off-season. Or at least it should.

    Totally agree. I find the result is the Top Tiers are protected from it, and everything under is collateral. Albeit at half the rate. I don't think that's the intention. It just happens to be the effect.

    Thats because Tier 1-5 have global nodes like the mostly loved stubborn and flow. Tier 6 and below do not have to face global nodes. and Tier 1-5 alliances have their war rating locked in during OFF-Season only.

    What Nodes they face have nothing to do with it. The bottom line is Tiers 1-5 are protected from manipulation, and everything else is not.

    In off season I place random defenders - think I had a team of 6* meme tiers last off season with suicides on, just so I had my full main roster for actual content
