Alliance War Matchmaking - what criteria is used to match alliances?

Our matchup today pits our Alliance, with a War rating of 1363, against an opponent with a War rating of 2013...

So I'm curious to find out if you will enlighten us as to how your systems decide which matches are made - as I was under the impression that AW rating had much to do with this.



  • That’s total BS dude. I’m guessing you guys got smoked right?

    Thank you for reporting to us about an unfair matchmaking in Alliance War. I am sorry for the disadvantage and difficulty this has caused to your fights. I will do my best to help.

    I certainly understand that this can cause a delay in your progress, I will look into this. Please know that AW matchmaking system depends on a wide variety of variables, the first being accessibility. Matchmaking can occur at different times and sadly there is no way for us to know when the Alliances closest to you are available. The game attempts to make the closest PI match if there is no close match found the game widens the search field until a match is found, which could sometimes include Alliances that have a much higher PI. The game does this to ensure that Alliances aren't waiting for an extended period of time before a match is found.

    Please also know that the Map difficulty will be randomly provided based on your matchup, if the opposing Alliance rating is high then you might be playing with a higher tier Map as intended.

    I would like to let you know that our Game Team is as passionate about the game as you are.

    That’s a standard response. Got the same one when I reported a non-matchmaking issue. Wish they’d actually address concerns and not spew out same responses to everyone
