Hello, everyone! I think I may have found a solution to ensure a fairer experience for Alliance Wars. As it stands now, the matchmaking process has been questioned and disliked greatly among many here in the Hero Hunters community. It randomizes war parties around similar power levels. In a way, this is the ideal intention, but many alliances have min-maxxed this to bring their power levels down to them mix it up against weaker alliances that can not proceed much due to very top heavy teams.
My suggestion then is to instead, matchmake wars based on a simple fix: match opponents by ranks of 6.
Scenario: Let’s say Team A gets 1st place, but they min-maxxed their way to the top. Make it so that Team A faces the next 5 that ranked similarly. What I mean is, make the rank 1 team face the other top 5. So if Team A minmaxed their way to the top, penalize them now by having them face the other top 5 teams. So, in the next war (or however it factors in points), have teams 1-6 on the leaderboards face each other!
- It destroys min-maxxing.
- It applies a risk scenario as many teams will avoid certain placements of 6.
- It allows for a deeper level of strategy due to not wanting to place high off the bat. Maybe?
- It will cater to the strongest possible alliances downward in a tree-like formation.
This whole game is about GROWTH and becoming stronger. Strong alliances SHOULD face other strong and successful alliances.
It would add an extra level of strategy on the 1st and 4th wars. I literally don’t see any cons to this idea. Of course, feedback is welcome.
TLDR version: Have teams face each other on a ranking basis, I e. 1-6 face each other, rank 7-12 face each other, rank 13-18 face each other and so on.
Thank you for your time and KEEP ON HUNTING!
