Supercell has shared some details regarding upcoming improvements to Clash of Clans‘ Clan Wars matchmaking system.
The goal, according to the developer, is to ensure that each Clan is more evenly matched against each other.
So how are they doing so?
“We wanted to share with you that we are making improvements to how the algorithm functions in order to address “engineered bases” in the matchmaking feature. This new functionality will take more into account as far as “total weight” is concerned with regards to both defense and offense. What this means for you is that your Clan will be more evenly matched against other Clans that have similar builds.”
Supercell admitted that one of the challenges in creating a matchmaking system is to allow players to retain their creativity in their base design and play style.
“We wanted to make sure that your strategies are not invalidated; just more evenly matched against others who share your play style. Our improved algorithm is an evolutionary step in making sure Clans will be matched more frequently against opponents of equivalent difficulty. Furthermore, we have also built in a certain degree of flexibility into the new system that allows us to fine tune the matchmaking weights as needed. This will allow us to monitor the matchmaking, make changes if we feel the weights are either too heavy or not heavy enough.”
The new Clan Wars matchmaking system is still currently in development and slated for a “near-future” release soon. Stay tuned for updates.
