While we greatly appreciate developers removing new characters from the platoons, I'm curious why it wasn't done to the ship platoons? Ebon Hawk and the Emperor's Shuttle are not yet farmable, and at best I would say some people got them to 5* during their Galactic Chase events. I have them at 4*. They are the newest ships out and the only way to get them to 7* is to spend crystals on them either directly thru shipments, which at 100 crystals per shard, would be very expensive or gamble and buy fleet cards and hope out of 36 possibilities, you get one of those 2 ships, which is still going to be very expensive.
I hope that you will take this into consideration and remove them from ship platoons before the next TB. And by the way, my guild just scored our first 45* TB, so it's not like it held us back that much, but I still think it's unfair. We were only able to get 3/6 ship platoons on the last section. That extra help may have prevented other guilds from achieving a * in one of those 2 lower territories affected by the ship platoons.
