GP is used to match guilds in territory wars, match players in arena shards, and now matches players through the grand arena. But GP is a misnomer and should be adjusted.
I have been playing since its release. I found the game by accident because my son was just beginning to get into SW, and I was looking around the app store for SW content. I was hooked from the first battle. I remember the days when Jedi Knight Anakin and Ahsoka were the best toons to use in the arena.
Fast forward a couple years and I have a healthy 3.2m GP. Awesome, right? No, because more than half of my team is useless against the new toons. My G11 Jedi from 2 years ago get obliterated by everyone ranked 300 or higher in the arena and cannot get passed the 5th wave in TBs.
The point is that when matched, especially in the grand arena, my competition (of a similar GP) has a much deeper squad because that player's GP is comprised mostly of obsolete toons.
I am in no way complaining (because if I was, it would be a multi page rant regarding the lack of a Jedi Luke, Han/Chewy Millenium Falcon, and a Luke X-wing), just trying to get my point across. I love the game too much. I think GP should be weighted towards newer characters or a significant evolution of the original characters needs to occur.
Old hats, I'm wondering what you think. Newer players need to get off my **** digital lawn.
