Thread: War search at 6+ hours and counting ...

    War search at 6+ hours and counting ...

    Horrible matchmaking. Awful AI changes. Ridiculously long searches. Clouds.

    This game is no longer fun.

    Great work Supercell!

    What does your war roster consist of?

    We have had to adapt to get decent matches, we left bases out that were attracting mass engineer clans, so we are now warring 10v10, all maxing accounts and gett war matches within 15 minutes.

    Not ideal in any way, and I agree things have got worse since August/September updates, so many of our members opting out after worst 2 months of warring since we started clan 3 years ago.
    A qualified Engineer since 1985 - use engineering analysis and strategy in everything I do.

    Is that a multi target Ferno up there Ben? No Bill, it's just a infrared heat lamp.
    Try some "healing" factor 50 to protect you.....

    To be fair, we have a pretty "wide spread" to match. 15/15 war with 5 th11, 4 th9, an 8, two 7s, a 4, and two 3s. So an extended search is understandable ... But seven hours is just plain ridiculous.
    Thing is, the same (or very similar) lineup has been matched within minutes in the past, and much more fairly than recent MM "improvements" have generated.

    We too have been a clan since before there even WERE clan wars, and lately we've also seen the worst matchmaking since it's inception.

    The other clans reporting very long search times mostly have in common that they are both roster engineering with low th filler and base engineering on top of that. You’d match faster leaving the th 3, 4 and 7 lowbies out of the roster.

    We welcome strong TH11 and TH12 adult players with big heros for relaxed fun warring, maxing bases and some pushing. Must know where the donate button is!

    That makes sense. But we like to let our noobs get in on the (ahem) "fun" too.

    We are an all adult group of clans, and it's great as an adult in this game to find somewhere for some adult conversation without the drama, hence we have casual players, newbies etc. Many of them are not "Real Gamers" and want to play a social game, try some strategy and have fun. We have had to leave many of these out of wars to get a timely and fair match since the update and go for the 10v10 option.

    This is not good for those casual players, and since Sept we have lost a number as they cannot get involved as they did pre update.

    Perfectly illustrates why I'm reluctant to go that route. My rule is "if you're green, you're in" ... provided they meet our fairly reasonable "non rushing" requirements. It wasn't easy building a 49 member drama free clan made up of solid players, and I hate the thought of seeing it crumble.
    But then I also hate to wait insane amounts of time just to watch our log turn red.
    ((sigh))

    One alternative is to run two wars alternately, the first one leaving out all the th11 (ie include nothing larger than a 9), the second leaving out the lowbies. It’s not ideal, but it would help.

    We have dropped some of our lower players into our baby level 5 clan and are going to try a sub TH8 war. this way we can keep the war continuity going.

    What would be great to keep the social cohesion, and it has been suggested many times, is an inter clan chat for assigned family of clans. Then a newer player does not feel left out of social chat when in the th3 to th7 clan, when most of the players are active in the th8 to th11 clan.
