I've been reading so so many complaints about GA matchmaking and unfair. I believe they fixed the one "unfair" part with their change to not include ship GP when the match doesnt include a fleet node.
My question is why is GP an unfair standard? This game is about decision making and resource management. So a player who leveled all characters to 85, G9, and leveled all non-omega abilities... they HAD the resources to level up only useful characters to G11-12, but made the decision that a broad and useless roster was better than a focused and powerful roster.
I have heard the argument for TB, and while I agree farming characters to 7 stars is useful for TB platoons, the GP inflation was stupid. Very very stupid. If you do the math, a focused roster to beat all the CM/SM and max platoons would be more efficient, AND benefit other areas of the game.
You have 3-4M GP with no CLS, Revan, Traya, etc? That's because you made decisions that led you there. So dont expect every game mode to pander to your decisions. Make better decisions in the future, or go play something non-competitive like farmville.
I'm just sick of all the complaints about matchmaking! The only unfair part was ship GP which is now fixed (and was also a decision made).
For the record I've only won 2 GA, but instead of whining when I lose, I figure out what I need to learn to improve.
