My previous post was taken down,but I will repeat it with corrections. So I’m being bullied by my shard.I’ve registed swgoh 2 years ago,but I stop playing.Recently I decided to comeback to this game.Revan came out and I realized I could get higher among the ranks(which increases amount of crystals u can get).I found out that there is a thing as shard chat so I went through the trouble and found my shard leader.I wrote to him asked if I could join the shard chat.He declined.As the game went on I was getting ranked 1 and my pay out time didn’t disturb any1 else’s in the shard.So I wrote to shard leader since I was getting to top 1 can I enter shard chat.(I tried to be as nice as possible)He declines again and said that my mods,character and account are ****.After this the whole shard decided to target me and knock me down on my po time as far as possible.We all know that rewards for getting 1st and 30th are substantial!Guys help!I have been nice, never rude and was willing to follow shard rules.But they just target me for no reason.

    These posts always get taken down. It was the subject matter, not the content. It's ridiculous.

    I understand the shard chat not wanting to invite you (looking at what's given: shard age, your roster, your mods).
    There are just 2 things you can do:
    1) Give up and live with the top xx rewards.
    2) You can keep fighting alone or create a 2nd "underdog" shard chat and fight them.

    That's not true. Posts that violate the Forum Guidelines are removed.

    Posts of this content are left open as long as they will remain civil, which is not always the case, but in instances like that they are just closed, not removed.

    We just need to control ourselves better then!

    Where has that last one gone then, out of interest? I can't see it anywhere. I enjoy reading folk trying to justify them!

    Why would the rest of his roster matter if he has a team that can take 1st? Also, he already stated his payout is at a time that doesn't disrupt anyone. I had the same issue. I wasn't allowed in and was targeted. I moved my payout to a time that was not busy and no one from the shard chat had, and they left me alone. I don't understand targeting people when they pose no threat, especially if they don't have a great team. It is one more easy team to beat when you make your climb.
    .

    As the founder of a shard chat I think they can do wonders for everyone's QoL and shard chats are not the issue. Toxic gamers are.

    THIS x1,000,000

  • Try to message other members of your shard and see if someone else will let you in. Let them know you aren't trying to hurt anyone else's payouts, you would just like to maximize your own, and know who to avoid.

    1) How do you know you don't share PO time with anyone else on the shard chat if you aren't in the shard chat?
    2) Getting knocked back to 30 daily isn't a big deal. I regularly am in the 20-30's when I start my climb for the day. Just a matter of getting knocked into the teens a few hours after my PO from others whose PO is coming up, and over the next ~20 hours after that naturally falling a bit more from other shard chat members and some who are not members trying to climb into the teens. Having to spend 50 crystals for an extra 5 battles to get that last fight or three in is actually pretty common even among shard chat members.
    a) Or do you mean getting knocked back to 30 while trying to climb during your PO hour? If this is what's happening, then yes that sucks. If its not, you are probably not actually being specifically targeted, just what normally happens over a 24 hour period.

    This. Especially if his/her payout isn't a busy one, excluding him/her from the chat is uncalled-for and deliberately targeting him/her is toxic.

    Eliminate shard chats, eliminate toxic people taking toxic approaches to the game. Although it’s probably too late, once word got out about deletion of chats, I’m sure phone numbers would be passed around. But it’s true that shard chats enable bad people to do mean things. Getting rid of shard chats would be an easier fix than getting rid of bad people.

    That's a very naive attitude to take.

    this

    try to message others in the chat....nobody likes to refresh attempts and if one 'difficult' player wants to be that it doesn't mean the rest are

    And why is that? Look, I know it’s implausible, but I don’t think it’s a bad idea. And it’s still much easier than changing people.

    If you want to eliminate or greatly reduce the impact of shard chats you have to change the arena system. That’s the only way. There are ways to do this if they wanted to take that approach. It’s quite apparent that they don’t.

    This is my conversation with that chat leader0o7umy8ps61o.jpeg
    I know that my po doesn’t disturb any1 else because there is a dude who is in the shard chat who told me what time is free.As I said again I’m not asking anything from them apart from not to target me by the whole shard when it’s my po!

    A couple of other possibilities/suggestions:

    1) You state that they "target you for no reason" - but earlier, the person you contacted from the shard chat gave you the reason - that you characters, roster and mods are...well, not good. You took a break and the rest of your arena shard has progressed. One option might be to simply "start over" with a new account. This might be a good idea anyway, because once the Revan meta is over, you will probably be stuck with inferior teams again (right now, most people with Revan - even with a bad team and mediocre mods can climb on offense).

    2) A second option might be to intentionally and actively improve the rest of your roster and mods, so that you are more "caught up". This, however often takes a lot of time and probably a real-money investment, so is not the most desired.

    3) Keep in mind that shard chats are a difficult balancing act for many involved. They are often trying to maximize everyone's payout, while, at the same time, not trying to have 20 people rotate for top rewards at every payout. There is going to be a "cut-off" for people based on strength of roster, dedication to play, etc. - and while that isn't necessarily what people want to hear, it's the truth. Why should someone who took a year or two off, has a weaker roster and doesn't play as often expect the same rewards/benefits of dedicated players with stronger rosters?


    What I incentive is there for me to upgrade the rest of the squad if a)I like Jedi b)they r the meta in the game mode where rewards are great and can really help you. About spending money...I live in a country where minimum wage and pension is 70 dollars, and you suggest that I spend hundreds of dollars on a mobile game because some toxic players don’t think my squad is strong enough?R u for real?

  • I love my 'shard chat'

    None of this bullying that is mentioned, I share a payout with 2x other members and we run an unofficial laissez-faire approach.

    Some days they lock me out, other days I manage to lock them both out.

    I'm thankful the rest of the shard-chat doesn't get involved and we are left to actually compete against each other for top spot like arena was meant to be.

    Having said that, I don't think I'd keep playing if I got shafted by collusion between top 50 players....
