I feel like I must have missed this post in the bug thread, but the CWA ranking changes/bug has thrown war matching completely out of whack.
we have CWA players who have dropped significantly in weight while other, less developed players have moved up significantly. The formula changed and broke things! It seems to also impact war matching.
i totally understand that lvl is not a predictor of war rank, but these players are not ranked based on their respective development in any area!
it is creating terrible imbalanced match ups.

Yes, I agree. Something got wrong from the last week (at least).

We've observed the same phenomena. In my aliance our number 1 in war now is an atomic. All 5-6 CWA players that we have appear behind him (and some are >260 lvl!). The rank in the war spreadsheet I do not care but.. I wonder that if wheight of individual players is not taken well into account this may interfere with war matchmaking..

The evidence I have seen is that the new trap levels (the landmines at least)seem to have zero war weight. So when those get upgraded, they actually take weight away compared to the previous levels. It is hitting a lot of players with high level traps. Walls appear to be a possible issue as well.

That just happened in our last war. I'm 241 CWA and have been number one on the list 100% of the time. Not completely maxed on def (Which I may never do) but I have maxed mortars/tank guns/towers/half my walls are maxed with update/landmines are maxed with new update/ and most traps are maxed. We had a player who hasnt been in war for 2 months and he just got back in. He's 228 AA and most defenses are around AA and some GA yet he was tossed into the 1 spot and I went to 2. While he was pissed I was happy because there's less pressure there.

Some sort of change has definitely happened in the last couple of weeks. I am a CWA player who is now ranked below two teammates that are 25 and 45 levels below me. The only thing that has changed in that time is that I have maxed out all my landmines to level 12.

It seems that CWA players who upgrade their last level of walls, go down in ranking as quickly. CWA players who haven't touch them yet rise up. If this affects ww matchmaking, it explains why our opponents get weaker and weaker.

I was only focused on the landmines. I forgot about all the walls I've upgraded to level 17 in the last couple of weeks. You may be on to something.

Yet another example...
we are ranked #1240 and have matched #22
we have 5 CWA warriors.... to their 17! It’s only 25v25 players! We were spinning for less than 10 mins. for a “good match”. Lvl avg 210 (2 sandbags) vs. 182
our glory spread is nearly 10,000 points different.... war matching is broken!!!
war weight of CWA players is a factor and war matching is worthless. Players are now backing out of war as a waste of resources.
as announced late last year, the changes that are happening behind the scenes introduced by BHG to war matching are NOT effective.

lets hear about other experiences. Have your CWA players started shifting on the war roster? Are your match ups “effective”?

That does make some sense as well. First thing that I did as soon as that update came out was get all my land mines to lvl 12 and 30% of my walls are lvl 17 now. I’m in the process in maxing sams and they finish in 5 days. Maybe I’ll drop down to the 4 spot after they finish. Oh I also maxed alliance gate as well along with the landmines. I’m not touching the shipyard though.

I'm lvl 224 AA and was put in front of our CW players with lvl 234 and 249 last couple of weeks. My walls are maxed, landmines too. Mortars, Garnisons, towers mostly GA. The other guys have RPG and HT MK7. Last war was 3:800, nobody could enjoy it. Our opponents were to weak and we earned only 3 glory.

No Title

Yet another screwed up ranking and poor war match. This game is becoming a waste of time...

The ordering of players seems to be based on defensive weight, so your player with HT Mk7s wouldn’t factor into your relative ordering. But yes, there does seem to be an issue with players sinking in the ordering when they level up walls. Amazing how old issues previously resolved seem to resurface.
