    Clan War Matchmaking Improvements

    Hey Clashers,

    As we have said in the past, one of our most important goals in matchmaking for Clan Wars is to ensure that each Clan is more evenly matched against the other. While we have made changes and updates to our matchmaking algorithm over time, we also understand much more needed to be done to provide an enjoyable War experience while preventing one Clan from having a major advantage over the other.

    We wanted to share with you that we are making improvements to how the algorithm functions in order to address “engineered bases” in the matchmaking feature. This new functionality will take more into account as far as “total weight” is concerned with regards to both defense and offense. What this means for you is that your Clan will be more evenly matched against other Clans that have similar builds.

    One of the challenges in creating a matchmaking system is to allow players to retain their creativity in their base design and play style. We wanted to make sure that your strategies are not invalidated; just more evenly matched against others who share your play style. Our improved algorithm is an evolutionary step in making sure Clans will be matched more frequently against opponents of equivalent difficulty. Furthermore, we have also built in a certain degree of flexibility into the new system that allows us to fine tune the matchmaking weights as needed. This will allow us to monitor the matchmaking, make changes if we feel the weights are either too heavy or not heavy enough.

    The matchmaking algorithm is still currently in development and is slated for a near-future release! But we wanted to make sure we communicated this to you all and let you know that ensuring an enjoyable Clan War is just as important to us as it is to you.

    Did it not take 'total weight' into consideration before? I thought that was the problem and people would engineer a high offensive weight and low defensive weight to get favourable match ups with lower 'total weights'.

    And the announcement arrives, but it just says they have continued to work on it and they are going to keep working on it without any actual detail at all. As I said in another thread, I think some of us, me included, incorrectly assumed a community manager would mean we would get detailed information on the forums on a very regular/often basis. This announcement tells us nothing we don't already know and is worthy of only a quick post last week, not a post last week telling us of a big announcement this week that we then wait all week to hear. I have to ask, what possibly was the reason for this simple vague post taking all week? I defended the delay several times in the last week, but it looks like I was wrong.
