Sorry for bringing up an old thread, but I’ll comment here instead of making a new one.
This system is all good for highly active regions, it makes sense, BUT, not for closed, dead regions with only 4 active factions.
My region has only 2 other factions that we can match with based on team strength, with 2 other factions that miss out because they are overall lower. Having this issue now. We’ve held off searching, so has the number 2 faction, in hopes that the 3rd and the 4th (the one that’s locked) will match. Nothing.
They’ve been searching since the start of these current wars. We’ve also tried scouting with 1 toon teams in hopes of matching with them. They’re going to miss out on prizes, even though they are on the board and searching, just haven’t matched.
The difference between the #1 factions rep and the one that’s ‘locked out’ is about 1mil.
This system isn’t good for regions like Sumter, and it needs to be addressed ASAP.
