    Why more than 60% of the 1v1 event battles are not fair with gear score
    So many battles i played the other ships has more "1500, 2000" gear score than my ship's gear score
    Even mk ships higher than my ship
    I hope i hear an answer & see a solve for this issue

    I agree, there is nothing fun or fair about the matchmaking, Rovio needs to do alilbit more brainstorming before setting the events up

    Thank you for the consolidated thread. I do not believe the 1v1 matchmaking is any different than prior... but now, finally the issues are obvious to everyone. I've logged every stat from 32 Battles of 1v1, so what I am posting is not "feeling" or "assumption" just facts. My main is MK6 Shooter, Ace I, max lifetime infamy < 3200.
    • My Opponent's Gear Score is higher 87.5% of the time, average +859.
    • My Opponent's Infamy is higher 72% of the time, average +385.
    • My Opponent's Captain Level is, on average, about the same as mine, average -1.
    • My Opponent's MK level is the same or higher 100% of the time. My MK6 is always matched MK6-7.
    • If I lower my MK level (trying other ships), my opponent's MK will be higher 100% of the time. My MK5 is matched MK6. My MK2 is matched MK5.
    • If I unequip my only T5 epic (shield), my opponent still may have a T5 epic.
    • 34% of my opponents are Nightmare League. I've never been over 3200 infamy.
    • 25% of my opponents have a gear score higher than I can put together from my entire inventory.
    I've listed every possible input to a "power rating" and none of it explains why my opponents are almost always stronger.

    Why is the rep balance so unfair ? At best I have had just over 1600 rep, I have tried with difering ships of differing ability but the majority I am fleeted with are or have been over 2k rep, some even 3k rep ! I can accept losing to those within a few hundred of me (so long as it works both ways) but why such differences, it just feels like the BB bisses want to look after the big guys and all the “smaller” ones don’t count !

    GS is the gear score, the sum of power levels of all the equipment you carry into battle

    Ha, you beat me to it, thanks!
    Not sure the gear score is the best way, if your rep is so far apart lol
    Thanks for replying...

    1) I have had at least 2 battles with my main account ("at least" because those are the ones that I bothered to look at in detail) where the gear score of my rival was more than 4,000 higher than mine (approx. 8,200 vs 12,000+). No chance of winning. A 50% difference in gear score is not really reasonable in my opinion.

    2) I have also been playing around with a very low level account (7 currently) and came across a couple of high level (3,500+ and 4,200+ inf) players who are causing unfair matches by using MK1 ships with uncommon items to get very low gear score (400 range) but who have high level training that gives them much higher HP (double or triple) and much stronger cannons than anyone else in that range. They are basically unbeatable because of the training advantage. This is unfair to both the low level players who have no chance against them and also to the higher level players who don't have any MK1 ships and must fight harder to get the same rewards in the event. I think this is something that needs to be stopped because it isn't a strategy that other players can also use to level the playing field (i.e. if you don't have an MK1 ship, you can't roll back a ship to make an MK1 vs. if you think speeders have an advantage in the event, you can always use/build a speeder) . Maybe the matchmaking has to put a level gap maximum in or require a minimum ship level per player level.

    This is the worst matchmaking in a long long time. mk4 against mk5 and even mk6. Nightmare players who have won 20 to 30 games in a row? A friend of mine is laughing and laughing, because he wins everything. He get soooo much weaker players that he said 'I tease them a bit and leave them alive for a while, but then I kill them anyway'.

    How come you got rid of the Gear Score matchmaking? That works fine, now the strongest players are killing us all.

    A lot of people stopped playing this event and I don't blame them.

    The whole matchmaking, also with normal battle should be a sum of Gear Score and Infamy, now it get so frustrating it might backfire!

    When i posted this thread my ship was mk5 shooter, and most fights were unfair for me mostly, but when i upgrade it to mk6 today, most fights were unfair for the unfriend ship mostly, of course i got unfair fights for me but not the same when i was mk5
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    *Another note about defenders with 12k or 14k hp, there is no way to win for shooter with 7k hp even if gear score is balanced, 2.5 minutes not enough time to kill it twice, and i face a lot of them.
