OK, I know the matchmaking in GAC is a little wack, has weird and unknown ruled. But it's really going out of bounds. I am a F2P 2.69M player in Division 4 (1.49M characters, 1.2M ships), and got to play as the very first match (easiest right, as I haven't promoted to next league) against a player of 3.02M power (1.71M characters, 1.3M ships).
Maybe he is really spread out right? Not really. At the top I have 1 relic7 and 7 relic4 guys. He has 6 reclic7, 1 relic4, 1 relic3, 1 relic2.
Meta characters? He has both Revans, Malak, Grievous G11, Padme G11, Geos G12 all, sith trio, no GAS, and a not so high Negotiator fleet. I don't have any Revan unlocked, no GAS, Grievous R7 (main team), Padme G12, no geos, no sith trio, good rebels (Han + Chewy R4) and a good rebel fleet.
Could he be a spender so the game gives him good matches to keep him happy. Or to punish me for not spending? Is this the direction of the game? Matches predetermined?
