Due to an issue with Alliance War Defense Tactic, we will be ending this Alliance War Season effective immediately. This current War will not count towards your Alliance War Season Score. War Season eligibility rewards will be reduced to 2 Wars in the Season.

We understand that this is not a perfect solution, but without the ability to remove or freeze the War Rating quick enough, the rest of our Alliance War season would be compromised.

This war will remain active, and in-game, you will still see the season until tomorrow. After we end the season tomorrow, we will be taking some time to collect data and remove the changes to the Alliance War Season score. Once that is complete, we will be able to send out Alliance War Season rewards.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

AW Matchmaking Update?

We were suppose to get an update around end of the month and it’s that time.

Just wondering if any update is coming still?

The top 5 alliances are #1-2-3 in the world without ever matching each other, how is this even possible?

    Think of NCAA basketball. The top 3 teams could never play each other but still be 1, 2, and 3 because of who they beat.

    Except the reverse. Top ranking is based on who can lay the smackdown harder on lowest plat3 allys

    Yeah, who they beat....the number 1 team could have beated previous teams at 2 or 3 but at the end of the season might never have played the teams that end at 2 and 3.

    This, the NCAA tournament factors strength of schedule into rankings/seeds. That's opposite land for AW Seasons.

    But again, the top 3 teams could have never played each other in the regular season yet still be 1, 2, and 3. The OP questioned how this could happen. You don't have to beat a top-rank team to be the top.

    That’s off.. the top 5 teams haven’t faced each other, and something seems wrong with that.. How are you the #1 team winning that season when you didn’t beat any of the best alliances to get there. matchmaking threads are put up all the time with 3300 alliances in totally different tiers and totally different war ratings match. There is an OBVIOUS problem with matchmaking and don’t believe anyone would disagree that actually plays the game more than they post on the forums.

    The best play the best before the new season starts. Even though that analogy is horribly off, disregarding the tournament that rewards a prize in the end and picking what you want from it, this is not the NCAA, this is a game with different levels of players,

    I know your the Mcoc defender going for mod, but the mods have already stated there is a problem and said we will have an update by the end of the month, I am asking where that update is and is it still coming ?

    Nowhere did I say it was the right thing to happen. What I am saying is there are plenty of instances where top teams never end up facing each other. But they should. Want that top prize? Fight for it. Give them some bracket-style program.
    Logistically, though, you could be forcing teams into AW at a time when it isn't best for them. You could be forcing a team from EDT to start a War at 3 am.

    Well, Master Alliance players are on all the time and very active. They have 24 hours to move their spots with a backup. They intentionally avoid matching each other now. That sounds like a reasonable rebutle but in reality, it is an excuse, esp if you look how frequent they each log in the game

    I just hope the matchmaking update comes as they said it should at the end of this month (now)
