There were 33 factions in the Diamond league Division 4 leaderboard for stretch 4 which ended with the premier event of Cross Regional War. This was a chance for highly active factions to war endlessly to try and push to win the stretch. Except for two factions. Notorious (#1 faction at time of CRW and #1 overall on Diamond top 25) and Infamous (#7 at time of CRW and #8 overall on Diamond) were given a 6v6 war when all other factions were given 8v8. Now I am no math major, but have 2 less opponents to score on is a 25% reduction. Taking our war average from just over 48,000 per war match, to 33,800, which amounts to at 30% loss in points.
Was this considered at all when making matchups @SandySurvivor, @JB.Scopely? You cant pit groups together to compete against each other but handicap two of them. I will always give 100% effort, and if I lose, so be it as I will regroup, learn from my mistakes and come back better. But to lose due to no fault of our own is more than frustrating. As region, we outscored MANY regions and even would have been the top overall region in CRW Match Group 2.
Going forward I only hope that current league placement is taken into consideration when matching for CRW.
Want to add this: Difference in points of 14,200 per win. 177 wins by that difference is 2,513,400
Added to our overall score of 5,983,977 gives us a total of 8,497,377. The two pictures below show the clear disadvantage when we warred just as many wars as Illuminightmare but “lost” by over 2 million
*JB has nothing to do with matching, just tagged so can be passed onto the proper parties
