Free wins are not for low rated clans by design, they are for people that did not get a game, despite showing up / preparing in time to join. Lowest rating is just a factor on which clan gets them.
There are few other templates other than 2v2 with very tough competition, but simply because at least few people join, free win will rarely go to high rating clan.
I'm not sure about removing the template. If no one is willing to play, maybe it's better to add another template instead, but it's not the fault of the template itself (cause it's not that bad skill-wise), but the fact it's 2v2, so needs more participation by default.
This season however it seems we do have a bit more love for the template?https://www.warzone.com/Clans/War?ID=4&Timeslot=580https://www.warzone.com/Clans/War?ID=4&Timeslot=586
My suggestion would be to maybe show how many whole teams are ready for 2v2, rather than number of players, and when people join let people know they need a teammate.
Generally speaking, it would obviously be good if we could reduce the amount of free wins, but I can't think of good way to do so.
Reducing the number of timeslots or the number of templates in a timeslot would help a bit, but I don't really like those.
And one last note, from certain perspective it would actually be better for our clan to get a game, rather than a free win, seriously.
In my opinion what Norman wrote is much more of an issue, no free win and no game, without their fault, just wasted time. Sure, they may play next timeslot, but why should they be punished like that?
I don't think it's bad to change matchmaking slightly to adjust for the high participation from one clan.
