This is NOT a pride issue, but rather an attempt to understand the obscure and inner machinations of this game. Just started a new war. Normally I am island #2, which is also my position in the team with regard to MP. The few times I have been on a lower island is often when one or maybe two of my team have better runes or a monster ranked higher than mine. So now this war, I am...island 11? Really? Plenty of people above me with weaker runes or monsters not ranked at all, while I had one monster ranked and leveled to 110 and runes as good or better than the ones above me.

I noticed an inconsistency on placement some time ago. For some strange reason I have been placed much higher then a lot of my team mates when it is obvious I have the weaker team. I have noticed it on a regular basis. One can't determine bottom feeding by the lowest island even anymore as the lowest island may be one of the strongest players.
I would sure like to know how the placement is as I am sure not seeing any consistency in it.

@Kaiju Seems awfully random, I mean, from my experience it can't be factoring in runes, or monster level because my ranked monsters can often be placed islands behind those with only lvl 100 monsters. Strange indeed.

It seems to be a mix of available monsters (and those in your PVP defence do not count), equipped runes and some randomness. MP has nothing to do with it I think.
So in general the stronger players in a team get the highest bases and the weaker get the lower bases, but do not be surprised if something happens like in the Kaiju example.
In the circa 350 wars I played for AMAB I only was base # 1 once. And obviously it was not because I was stronger in these elements than Your Master, but because the random factor was 'in my favour' that time.
Untamable / The Winter Book should be in the War Rules (C0ntr1v3d especially should play it)

@SkeelMaster I agree with your observation. Monster levels/types being equal, it's always the life runed bases that are higher!
