So, it seems that fleet were struggling on numbers so made the rank requirement to 1st LT then recently they moved ot down to 2nd LT (like the old days) and even made it so u don't have to make an app here on the forums, u can just be asked questions in-game and then if u pass u in fleet.
The main topic I want to talk about is a topic that was talked about before and because of it the rank requirement for fleet got pushed to CPT. So a 2nd LT in a reg, can apply for fleet, get accepted, and now he can order around everyone that is a clone? (except gens ofc) How can a rank which is kind of equivalent to 2nd LT (cause u need 2nd LT to apply for it) order a CPT+, MJR+, or even COs ????
It seems like this is a "back door" for powerplay on the server, people can just get 2nd LT, apply for navy and if they get accepted, they can be the "big mans" of the server and order around everyone and it can be inferred from this that power-hungry people on this gmod server can see this opportunity to get more power and they will jump the horse so fast that it is even faster than the rotation in RC COs.
My opinion is that If u want all of this avoided, maybe get it back to CPT+ or have an actual "test time" before actually being fleet when they are not really fleet but they are tested if they are competent with being fleet and are not power-hungry and maybe then all of the high ranks will trust low-ranking fleet a little bit more.
