In the war we are currently in, one of the teams kicked all of their sub-1400 players as soon as the war started. They now only have 5 players (2700-1500), a roster of 5/43. They were a roughly 1000 rank alliance at when this started, and immediately became 2400 rank. This should not be possible. We will still beat them, this isn’t a complaint about that, but one of the other alliances does not have a player above 1500, so will just be totally screwed when they face them.
More importantly, this is a terrible experience for all the (newer) players they kicked who now will have a hard time finding an alliance and then will not even be able to fight for 2 days once they find one. Allowing this sort of manipulation of the war system is awful. It should not be a valid “strategy” to ***** over a bunch of people like that.
