    @NicWester bravo sir, very well explained and argumented! It seems odd that matchmaking counts a player's Fleet GP as part of his total GP when there are no ship battles in GA.

    If I remember well there were a dev. post if no fleet in GA, then only the the squad GP will be used in the matchmaking. Obviusly it is no live yet(avg. 200k less my squad GP than my opponents).
    Do we know when this will happen?

    (P.S.: My rooster is fleet heavy, but until now only lost two of my GA matches, so do not matters a lot)

    It was in the road ahead. We will just have to be patient.

    I bet in a half carbanti in april (after 3 GA in march) you still need to say the same thing. (Patience)

    I have no problem repeating it, if it's still true.

    We have been debating GA matching on a thread in general forums...GA, matchmaking & amp & fluff. Where we were asked to provide screenshot of how CG encourage buffing your roster which we have found several DEV announcements w/ proof of that. And we also have another announcement where Dev's say no one should be disadvantage for leveling up past a point in any game mode. Which would be counter to "spirit of the game". If you could review the comments and provide some feedback on the current matchmaking would be greatly appreciated. It has a lot of feedback available on the current GA matchmaking.

    Like ASAP!
  • After so many Grand Arenas... Counting TOTAL gp for a GA with no ships is just unfair and ridicolous. This gives advantage to players who ignore ships and makes the game frustrating for people who upgrade both characters and ships. How can I beat someone with 300.000 characters gp more than me? Please fix this as soon as possible :(

    CG encouraged players to broaden their rosters and buff up their characters before the long gone tournaments, yes. They didn't advice to fluff up your roster by leveling characters, you wouldn't be using anyway.

    The problem is not fluffing up your roster with useless characters, the problem is that matchmaking is inflating your total GP by also counting your ship GP when there are no ship battles in GA. This way of matchmaking often creates unfair power gaps between players' character rosters.
