You guys seriously need to reevaluate how much weight is given to relics in GAC matchmaking. Look at this utterly ridiculous matchup:
Note that the GP is not entirely accurate because the Discord bot seems to have a problem with relics too. But 27 (!!!) more g12 toons and 18 more g11? Almost twice as many zetas? Just because I have 5 more g13? How is this even remotely fair?
I seriously feel like you're punishing newer players for spending money on relics. The matchmaking in the recent squad GAC was awful enough. Every single one of my opponents had been playing much longer than myself judging from their considerably higher number of zetas. But this is a whole new level of unfairness. Why in the world would you want to disadvantage players who try to get ahead or at least keep up by dropping money on your game?
This feels especially demoralizing since you're also punishing those of us who enjoy the fleet aspect of this game that you continue to treat like a redheaded stepchild. Spending bottlenecked gear on characters like Bistan's or Cassian's ship crew already puts us at a disadvantage in squad GAC. Then you finally give us a fleet GAC and the rewards are utterly pitiful. To top things off, you allow those who have neglected ships to hide their weak fleets behind several meta squads.
The skewed matchmaking is just the cherry on the $#§% sandwich. You keep saying you want to do more for us fleet aficionados, but as with all your promises (like easing the gear crunch), you keep doing the exact opposite. Please take another look at the matchmaking formula for fleet GAC as well as the territory layout for this GAC mode and the uneven amount of banners for clearing the fleet territory. I've been so looking forward to the return of fleet GA, but you've managed to turn this mode into another punishing chore.
