Did anybody else get automatically entered into this coming GA without hitting a "Join" button? I just want to make sure it's normal and not some bug where I haven't technically joined because I never hit the button.

Matchmaking is a joke -
I faced a opponent with 48 more GL13 than me - What is that ? those toons have anywhere from a 6 to 22 speed advantage to an equivalent GL12 - This is not fun nor fair - maybe your programmers should actually play and test their algorithms before pushing them out - This is worse than Tesla's AP SW and Summon - Such horrible code and algorithms for this matching.

I would like to see Ships in the Grand Arena. I'm sure there are folks who hate ships, but Ships are a big part of the game and contribute a significant part of a player's GP. Without including at least one ship battle in Grand Arena, it penalizes players who focus on ships.
I'll give you an example: A few cycles ago, I tied my opponent. We both had the same score of 1549. However, to my dismay, my opponent was given the win because he had a lower overall GP. However, my higher GP was because of my strong fleet of ships. My GP for characters was much lower than my opponents! Needless to say I was upset.
As a player who focuses on ships, it seems strange that matchmaking, Division Placement, etc. is determined on Overall GP rather than Character GP considering that there are no longer any fleet battles.

Really hope you guys reconsider NOT adding ships to GAC.
As someone who has invested heavily in ships, to my dismay, it has grown to hurt me when ship GP is considered.
Please don't over-complicate the GAC algorithms right when I feel like you guys have it figured out!
If you want to include ships, have it be in tandem, but not on the same map. Mixing fleets and squads is the fastest way to get me to quit GAC altogether.
Let ships die, kill them if you have to.

Finally, we’re making a small change to the way the layout works. We’ve added a single ship zone to the Grand Arena maps to spice things up. With more people unlocking the Negotiator, and the Y-wing and Hyena bombers hitting the game, we can finally start to include more ship content into the Grand Arena so that you are not facing the same squadrons over and over. We have further plans along these lines for the next iteration of Grand Arena Championships, so don’t get too used to any particular Grand Arena set up. What we can say is that we have no plans to shift the maps within a single Championship. All four Grand Arenas will use the same maps, so you will have had plenty of opportunities to see what works and what doesn’t.
great so this means those who have unlocked Negotiator will auto beat one who doest have it, so they can easy put lesser teams on defence as they cant beat it. Great for the whales and the ones who are in higher guildes.
Time to stop the game for sure now
Think you even lose more players this month then last month with the Malik Fiasco you made.
Lets all just quitte the game and call it a day

Would have been incredibly smart to change the verbiage from "Player lock in 20h blah blah blah" to "Join period ends in 20h blah blah blah" since the behavior is completely different.
While we're on the GAC topic, thanks but no thanks for swapping zetas (useful to all players) for fleet omegas, which at least 50% of div 1 players have stacked in the triple digits even with a couple new ship releases. You guys officially took away 98% of the incentive to do anything for GAC this next week. Besides the fact that fleets are a not terribly interesting component of it, and in general the rewards don't come close to being worth the effort, but at least with no fleets, 5 man squads, and a couple zetas in the air, it was some small amount of fun and reward.
In general though, the time investment and the significant gear and mod investment to field twice as many teams as TW, is not worth it, in the slightest, zetas were the only thing diving any activity, just like fleet before crystals.
