Greetings Leaders,

We’re aware that many players have recently been encountering an issue where they are unable to find a matchmaking opponent.

We believe this is due to the rapid increase in matches following the new seasonal Leaderboards release causing more Peace Treaties to be placed on bases.

To combat this, we will be reducing the duration of multiplayer, defeat-earned Peace Treaties on active bases to the following:

  • 8 hours reduced to 2 hours
  • 12 hours reduced to 3 hours
  • 16 hours reduced to 4 hoursWe appreciate any feedback on how this affects your gameplay. Please drop a comment below if you’ve noticed an improvement or have any concerns with this change.

UPDATE 11/12:

Greetings Leaders,

Thank you to everyone who was able to share constructive feedback on the recent Peace Treaty change, this is incredibly valuable to us.

Our decision to shorten Peace Treaties was the quickest and simplest fix we could enact to resolve the larger issue of players unable to find multiplayer battles following the Leaderboards release. However, the impact on player experience, especially more defensive-minded players, is stronger than intended, as our primary goal was to address the matchmaking issues we were seeing.

We are working on a long-term solution to address the matchmaking issue as well as account for the feedback we have received around the Peace Treaty timer change and aim to implement these as soon as possible.

In the meantime, we will be adding a free offer for one of each Defensive Blessing from the Temple, which can be found in the Sales Window, as well as an extra chance at Defensive Blessings from Supply Crates to help alleviate some of the extra burden this has put on defenders.

We greatly appreciate the suggestions that are coming in. While many of these may not be technically feasible, or have other issues that keep them from being a viable solution, please continue to share your thoughts as we will continue to monitor and update in this thread.

UPDATE 11/19:

Greetings Leaders,

We are continuing to work on best possible solutions for the ’No Opponent Found’ multiplayer battle issue and the subsequent Peace Treaty duration reduction.

Today we are rolling out further modifications by increasing the duration of multiplayer, defeat-earned Peace Treaties to the following:

  • 2 hours increased to 4 hours
  • 3 hours increased to 6 hours
  • 4 hours increased to 8 hoursWe are also implementing ‘Inactive Player Peace Treaties’ for accounts that have not logged in for an extended period of time. These accounts will have significantly reduced Peace Treaties for as long as they remain inactive. Once the account logs in it becomes active again it will begin receiving the regular, full-length Peace Treaties.

Work is currently underway on additional solutions to alleviate matchmaking issues while getting peace treaties back to their original state. We hope this latest adjustment will offer a better experience in the meantime.
