GAC matchmaking is wack

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?

  • It just so happens that you are at the bottom of your bracket and your opponent is at the top of it. Raw gear or GP isn't the deciding factor of these matches. Have fun with the challenge. You aren't always going to be placed with and easy win.
  • As a knowledgeable f2p player in this game it is hard. But the game doesn’t change odds or probabilities for pay 2 play so it just happened u ended up with a player like this.

    As a spender, my matches are ridiculous too. My meta-ish teams with 3 or more relic characters are Padme, JKR, GG and CLS. My current opponent has all of those plus DRM, as well as vastly more g12 characters and more zetas.

    If anything, you only shoot yourself in the foot by spending larger amounts of money on this game because your zetas and your mod collection don't keep up with your rapidly growing GP. At this point, my F2P opponents have 2 years of experience on me. 2 more years of mod and zeta farming make one hell of a difference.

    Thats true! They should change the matchmaking and make it based upon GAC points in general.
    Why matching people twice around GP? You do the GP seperation for the divisions. Now do the matchmaking based upon points.

    So in the first round it's a free for all?
  • Sounds like a reasonable match up, with many paths to victory for either side.
  • No idea what you mean by -weird and unknown rules-. You get matched by top X (depending on the slots you have at your division). So if you got matched your and your opponents top X match almost perfectly. If not please showcase it doesn't to us.

    I have thought about that to be appropriate. It would make sense for the higher ranks to fight each other, not those 400k below.

    I am a spender, although I get the matchup with many opponents 400k+ but their rosters and placements are not very good. The harder opponents for me have usually been closer to my gp
  • They stink at the match ups. I have 5.3 million. Going agains a member or MAW with 6.34 million and 16 more g13s how that frick does that happen. Ea your more than welcome to delete this post again but honestly. You guys stink at matchmaking. No curses so now you can’t delete my post. Figure it out you guys make tens of millions of dollars a month and you just fired a ton of people. Hopefully who ever you hired has a clue. No mater what bracket your in the match ups are horrid.
