I’m not listing this under bugs because I’m pretty sure this is expected behaviour.
Long story short: How can we get matched against #1 faction if we are ranking #57 (or worse) and our lineup is not even that strong.
We are ranked #15 in our region. Tbh, we are getting worse as time goes by bc we are not able to fill the slots when someone leaves to a stronger faction. We have done in the past, in fact we have been around for at least two years! Always in similar position (sometimes we fought for #10, others for #20)
But nowadays our region has way less active players than it used to. Already stated that to @kalishane before, and asked about region merging (I know, wishful thinking).
But this is a different problem.
As for war: It’s really frustrating when after waiting 2 hours to fill our team, it takes 20+ minutes to get a match (84 factions have scored so far). And then, you get matched against #1 faction, who is actually wiping everyone else (35-1 so far, hats off to them).
Worse thing, is that our lineup is not even strong, we even have to use two dupe accounts bc we would be waiting forever to fill the war roster.
#1: rep: 30k rep, S4++ strongest team (using S3++) [this is me]
#2: 23k rep, S4+
#3: 19k rep, S3
#4: 11k rep, s2+
#5: 9k rep, s2+
#6: 1k rep, S4+
#7: 2k, A++
#8: 1k, B++
AFAIK, the system tries to match against a similar faction, then starts widing up the range if it can’t find a good match, so it’s actually possible to get matched against an faction waaay stronger than yours. BUT, something has to be off, I’m not buying there’s no other faction (except #1) searching for those 20+ min.
I’m a software engineer myself, I know things are not easy to fix and there’s not a perfect solution for anything.
But please, look into it . (I’d rather wait another 20 min than fight #1 and get 800 points overall for the whole faction).
PS: @other users: please don’t come to tell me we should split or join another faction or some other BS. We know we’re screwed right now, but this is not the point here.
