Unlike me, who has the ability to call in fleeties to break spawn camps if I find myself in one, many players are not in fleets and that effectively precludes them for actually entering the instance as they get shockwave camped and blown up whilst stunned in seconds because they are alone.
But I have seen Star Dagger and his buddies do that whilst I was Klingon side and frankly I was disgusted. I would at least understand it it was a 'revenge camp' after having broken a Klingon spawn point camp, but it was not. That is why I will not team with anyone in your fleet.
And to further blacken my view of RZR, I was flighting a Fed the other day in Ker'rat after he challenged for a 1v1 over the broken planet (i.e. nowhere near the spawn) and a RZR pre-made came over and killed my opponent even though the duel was clearly announced in zone and frankly we all know that fights over the broken planet are duels anyway.
Now I realise that in the ebb and flow of PvP, we use pack tactics to kill people... the many focus fire the one and that is not a problem: it is called 'team work' and this is a team game. My objection is when the limitations of the game is used kill people when they are zoning in. Frankly it is an indictment of the game designers lack of attention to important details that it is even possible when all they need is a 5 second *total* immunity to *everything* upon repawning (which cancels the instant you use an offensive ability)
If I have collectively misjudged your fleet then I will apologise but thus far I see nothing honourable or admirable. And frankly logging out in normal combat situations is every bit as craven and dishonourable in my view.
Ker'rat is a Open PVP Warzone, if you want to 1vs1 go do a custom 1vs1 challenge, it is that simple.
