    The quicker you realize that us non maxed bases are only there to farm medals and fill the void it'll take the sting off trying to succeed. Skill can only carry you so far. No matchmaking after the initial placement is a big indicator that SC is catering to the clans with all maxed bases.

    Nonsense. You can push as high as your skill AND progression will let you. That is succeeding. For my clan, finishing places 3 to 5 in masters 3 is succeeding. 2nd is really good. We aren't good enough to go higher. Yet.

    CWL works as a ladder system. Those who are the strongest rise to the top, and those who are lacking in a certain department naturally sort themselves onto different rungs of the ladder. As a measure of strength, it has no obligation to solely cater to the skillful. Base and offense strength matters too. A matchmaker would be detrimental to the current system as people would abuse it to rise in the rankings. We would see clans who lack in base strength and offensive strength finish as high as world class clans, because they gamed the system. Nevermind the logistical nightmare this would be, do these clans, most of whom would be unable to play well at the highest level, deserve to be recognized as being among "the best of the best?" This is why CWL is currently the way it is.

    In a mixed clan your skill takes a backseat and depends mostly on the group you're pooled in. We've been in and out of 30v30 M2 for several seasons and its made up of mostly all TH13s. Any TH12 in the lineup is a handicap. Wanna guess which clans are at the bottom this round? Its better to be in the 2nd or 3rd place position gaining all those bonus medals than it is to zero out in a higher league where no one has fun.

    Skill can only carry you so far and the same goes for progression. Other than the very elite top pro type clans in Champs1 and the clans that keep taking first or second place in 30v30 M1 (every other month) the thousands of other clans are going to be capped at winning around 50% of the time and that includes th13 clans too. Odds are your clan would win about the same amount with all th13, just higher on the ladder, or all th12s, just lower on the ladder.

    Contact SC here. Click here for how trophies are calculated. Click here to see how war map placement of max halls is determined. An idea to improve legends here. I wish max players had a separate loot bank as described here. Caution, I often discuss for the sake of discussion and enjoy having my opinion challenged (or approved of) even when I care little about the actual issue. My balance wish: get rid of tornado trap, make it a decoration.

    Since you bothered to read nothing on the topic, let me just say that adding weight based matching would break CWL, full stop.
