We are working to improve Alliance Wars matchmaking to better support situations where multiple experienced players start a new alliance. As part of this project, we are running a series of tests. The goal of these tests is to make sure that the new approach performs better than the old one.

During the tests, half of the alliances will be matched using the old model and the other half using the new model. Please note that we always show the war score calculated using the old method. If your alliance is matched using the new method, the difference in the war score for the two alliances may be larger than usual. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the match is unfair - it just means that the war score has been calculated differently by the new model.
The next test will be performed on the 29th of September. We will keep you updated if there is a need for further tests. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
