This is absolutely correct. For example nearly everyone from my clan doesn't play ghost until the day of the clan war. All the time between we mostly play other games online with only a few exceptions.

MInd you we are almost all 10th prestige with 10days game play so we are a bit burnt out ATM. But to assume we are going to be less active for a war would be a huge mistake as none of us even miss more then a few mins of it. So I am not sure how they would be able to use any real stats to match clans.

^^ correct. Another very real reason activity can be misleading.

Maybe they should only look at activity during clan wars or at least give that time more weight than non clan war activity. I'm sure as we get more wars completed they will continue to compile data & make improvements. It's just frustrating to see so many clans that do not appear to be active. When we moved up to platinum I expected more activity and nodes being capped, taken away & then capped again by other clans.  Just the opposite has occurred last 2 wars.

Look crying your out classed in platinum and crying that you need to be bracketed against weaker plat teams is kinda dumb sounding. Its like saying we made it to the superbowl but should be playing a team that didn't make the playoffs because we aren't good enough to be here.

How many 12 member platinum clans do you think might be playing in clan wars??  I'm assuming enough that the groups of 8 should be more competetive. When 4 of 8 clans in last 2 clan wars appeared not to be active at all and lead clan won easily because they were very active, organized, & skilled.   There should not be that much sepetation in my opinion. If you don't have any input on the subject then quit replying to the post. You think I'm crying. Ok. Your opinion. You stated it, now move on. Good day.

Any clan can go inactive for any given war. Have you taken the time to check their rosters? Most times they are full of players with many hours of game time.

Yep, I understand how the lock works. Just seemed odd that they added 4 so quickly, but then I realized they had about 28 hrs to add the 4 members. Maybe they kicked ones that couldn't play before lock & added them back after. Either way I know it's 12 vs 12. I just don't understand how it's fair and balanced when their KDR & win% is double ours. We will have to play twice as much just to keep up. I know they had at least 5-6 playing together so no issue with them capping all nodes quickly. Thanks for input

My initial thought was that the message was related to matchmaking in-game during clanwars rather than matchmaking within the bracket your clan competes in..

clan wars is the lamest attempt to have some league play ever. black ops 2 has double the people playing it

and ghosts is so lame the price has now dropped to 39.00  by the way black ops 2 is still 49.00

Well I have to agree. I don't know who programmed their algorithms but they are way off.

One of the clans we are up against has a 4.61 KD  our clan has a .84 KD   -  This is equally skilled??

Also 4 out of the 8 clans should not have even been in the platinum division. I mean how can your clan be lvl 4 and earned entrance into the platinum division?

Here is our roster my clan is at the top

0.84 KD  clan lvl 17  win ratio 40%

1.26 KD  clan lvl 14  win ration 61%

0.93 KD  clan lvl 16  win ration 44%

1.69 KD  clan lvl  4  win ration 76%

4.61 KD  clan lvl  21  win ration 87%

1.12 KD  clan lvl   2  win ration 39%

0.55 KD  clan lvl   1  win ration  35%

1.26 KD  clan lvl   2  win ration  56%

Regardless - this clan roster line up is hardly evenly skilled. I see only one clan that that was appropriately skilled & matched up to us. This new matchmaking is for the birds.
