  • Hey,

    I don't know if this was already mentioned (103 pages is too much:) but i do have a questions to devs:
    Why there is no options to place 7 teams on defense?
    My GP just got me from div3 to div2. All of the sudden, from 12 teams i needed so far i have to get 16 teams. This is not easy for a player that barely crossed 3,8M GP. Last time (the cancelled GAC) i was matched with people up to 4,5M GP. No single player below 4,0M. I know that matchmaking isn't GP dependent anymore. But hel.. those guys have much more teams that i have. I don't know what to use.. will have to fight with G9 phoenix i guess. Why there are 6 def teams to place in div3 and as much as 8 in div2? Why not 7 as before? Just to mention - those 7 teams were on from 4M GP. And now.. 8 teams from 3,8M. :'(

    I forget what division I'm in (bit under 3M GP), but I only get to set 6 teams.
    I'd love to set 8, so I guess we have a different view.
    The fewer teams you set, the bigger difference 1 team makes. I face one G13 DR/Malak/Traya team and it's an auto loss for me (as per the last GAC that thankfully got cancelled - yeah!!), as half the map I can't clear. There is little incentive for me to bother trying to compete, so it either ends up frustrating for me, or a walkover for them.
    You start putting more teams in play, and maybe I can win enough other battles to have a chance, or at least feel competitive, so I'm more likely to try.
    And what's wrong with using more of your roster? Seems a huge waste to have another 30+ L85 toons I never get to use in GA. I enjoy 60k-70k team matches - can often rely more on team composition and strategy than just a G13 power comp.
    Perhaps I'm in the minority though?
  • @CG_SBCrumb you guys are in dire need of some proofreaders, lol. Monday the 22nd?

    If they cant even get the date right is anyone confident that the bugs are fixed?

    Fleet arena counts it's not fleet gac
  • How is this possible ??? vgsvbjrcqrkd.jpg
  • I guess I have a dumb question. There are a few posts about GAC, and they refer to a bye. What is a bye?

    When there aren’t an even number of players that signed up, so the person that didn’t get a match gets an automatic win with full banners.

    Thanks. I assume it is based of the sports term? I don't follow them, so it confused me a bit.
  • Your match making is still atrocious.

    My Gp is down by 500k and my teams are all solid but taken out on one try by my opponent who still has solid defenses set - if you want fun close matches you need to get better at the basics

    Can you we get an update on whether this GAC will also be cancelled before I invest time in fighting battles and what not?
  • GAC is pure garbage!!

    - Atrocious matchmaking at Tier 1
    - Bugs bugs bugs
    - Less rewards for more time invested
    - No real leaderboard
    - No progression system from grouping to grouping
    - Atrocious matchmaking at Tier 1 (yup, had to add that again)
  • This might fall into oblivion but will rant nonetheless. My final opponent in GA had a focused roster (yeah love those TB team players right?) with similar toon gp to mine but a massive discrepancy in g13 toons: he had 32, I have 8. How does this qualifies as fair matchmaking?
    Needless to say I lost the round and will finish in the [2-4] bracket, no big deal but would really appreciate g13 and g12 to be matched in close to even numbers for the future.
    Why? because a full g13 NS wall is really tough to beat. because g13 rebels and GR stand a better chance of beating DR.
    Looking forward to seeing some improvements on that front.

    Did this actually happen? Lol

    8 malak on defense is a better set up to roll with

    Yes, the G13 discrepancy in GAC is ludicrous. Can I let you in on a little secret?
    They don't care.

  • I joined GA early this afternoon but it doesnt have me matched up. I cant get anyome to help...anyone? ::crickets::

    Never put Ewoks on defense. Nest can solo. Ewoks work great as an offensive team too.

    Indeed. But they are great if the enemy has no Nest. A well modded Ewok team can catch people by surprise for sure if they don't have Nest.
  • Btw can we get an update on auto deploy? Since when oponent does not deploy all defense zones to screw you up is really frustrating.
  • I can’t be the only person that thinks the tie breaker is set up wrong in Grand Arena. Currently a tie is awarded to the player with the highest GP...but wouldn’t it take more skill for the lower GP to tie with a higher GP?

    Hey matchmaking! You are drunk, go home ok?

    I'm below 4,0 mln (was barely above 3,8 when GAC started) and the algorithm matched me with a guy 4,55 mln and 50% more G12's. Obviously i couldn't win this i simply lack teams. He had them all. Just for the record - my opponent wasn't empty GP inflated balloon. 336 speed DR on arena, etc. We are both top1 squad arenas. This nonsense is literally killing my will to play this game. I totally don't mind loosing, i'm not the best out there. But let it be with more or less equal opponent. Not with the matchmaking awkwardness.

    PS. I really think that increase the number of required teams from 12 to 16 after crossing 3,8 mln is absurd. It should be div3: 12, div2: 14, div1: 16.

    Don’t like the initial sound of it — sounds like the Grand Whale Arena. But only time will tell.

    Why? You meet people on same GP...

    Tie should be counted as tie, imho. People were equally good (or bad) - why anyone should win or lose?
