I having been playing for long time to finally reach being able to get a high rank in fleet or squad. To find there are shard chats that dictate who gets to climb to first.
I switched my p.o. time twice trying to find a time where I would not be stepping on anyone's toes. To find a member of the shard blocks me when no one was collecting highest rewards. It is unfair. I thought this was pvp not player vs organized group against you.
Experienced same thing in squad. They block me with wall of Kenobi so I could not climb and if I do I get targeted and knocked right back out.
I know ones who are part of a shard chat would have an opinion on why they think they are alright. I personally think it gives an unfair advantage.
