What exactly goes on in a QGP in regards to the particles and confinement? If quarks and gluons are normally confined, does this confinement suddenly not matter anymore? Does the plasma act like one big confined particle in a way? (Like one big nucleon or nucleus)

I think the description as "one big confined object" is not bad. Compared to hadrons, it is a bigger box where the gluons and quarks are in.
