Well, actually, in prior arena tours (excepting the first Vertigo leg, which was fixed), presale access pretty much DID ensure good-to-great GA/other good ticket access. First, in the modern era, U2's first all-arena tour of the US was Elevation--and there were no problems whatsoever with u2 fan club GA availability (or great seats). This (in part) is why the first Vertigo presale (also arenas) was such a huge flap--and had nothing to do with arenas being smaller, etc. Larry himself acknowledged that the first Vertigo presale was a massive screwup, and things were promptly fixed for the rest of that tour. Then, as we all know, the 360 tour went back to stadiums (for the first time since the POP tour), so that's not as relevant. Then, as I mentioned in an earlier response, presale availability (both GA and good seats) for the 2015 I & E tour was still pretty good (perhaps showing some, but not a huge, decline vs. prior tours). In light of all this, all in all, the current tour had clearly had vastly inferior presale allocations (both GA and seat quality) vs. prior arena tours.
