Is it possible to drop AW Position after a big win?

We were #37 in Platinum 2, on 4.2m points.

We just had a big win and our points are now 5.3m.

Yet we dropped one position to #38.

This is the first time I’ve seen this happen.

I get that it’s not impossible - but it is definitely highly, highly improbable, as it would mean all the alliances above us would have needed to win; and some alliances below us win bigger than we did.

I suspect more issues is the actual reason.

Matchmaking was broken again last war round and I suspect that there is also a problem with the incorrect attribution and application of multipliers across the Tiers.

Can someone at Kabak please explain the math behind our drop in position and convince me it’s not more incompetence?

    Some that was ranked below you prior but is in a higher war tier won... Not overly complicated

    You’re probably in a lower tier than the alliances around you so even with a win you’re not getting as many points as the higher tier alliances who lise , for example you win get 200k in tier 4 you get 900 but a 150k loss in t2 is also 900k, so you aren’t going higher even with the win

    yes it is very possible to drop position after a win, its very common on the brink of p1/masters and p2/p3, and everywhere the last few wars of a season in masters/p1

    We did the same, dropped a few spots in p2 after a win. I’m thinking this has something to do with the issues surrounding matchmaking.

    Yes, we were in Tier 3, but had a massive win equivalent to a normal win in Tier 2.

    Again, I acknowledge it’s not impossible...but given the points we got for the win (1.1m), I was surprised.

    Even more so because there aren’t many alliances below us with higher war rating, to indicate they are Tier 2.

    I guess it points to one thing:

    The fundamental lack of faith in the game to be ‘working as intended’.
