I am new to STO. Regarding your TrekBBS fleets, how many members areD there in it?
Difficult to estimate, because we don't purge the roster from players who are on hiatus since we have the roster space to spare for now.
Also most of us have several alts in the fleet, so not every character is a different toon.
We hovered around 50-60 individual players at some point, though not all of them are still active.
there are probably a dozen or so players who are active in the game at any given time (not around the clock), but not everybody of those is regularly contributing, since the game demands so many resources for personal stuff, too.

So if you are looking for a fleet that is buzzing with activity you will have a hard time with the Armada.
On the other hand, the fleet won't ever demand anything from you.
We have a very basic progression plan. After a short grace period you get regular membership pretty much right after you have shown, that you are not just joining the plunder the bank.
Once you are more familiar with the game you get the premium membership in the fleet with extended privileges.

Everything is extremely casual, so no other wild hoops to jump through to gain advantages like decent high end gear access through teh fleet vendors and discounts.
I am not really sure that the Fleet, in which my Starfleet character is, is good. Very few people are active, like one or two, and I think that's because the majority are from a different region from mine, and I didn't know that when I got the invite. And it is small, with only 30 members.

Well, just leave your character@handle here and the next person online can invite you to the Armada.
You can try how you like this bunch.

To leave your old fleet open the fleet roster and you should find a leave button on the lower corner of the window.

Just don't expect 24/7 activity with us either, we are rather Eurocentric, though some Americans as well, of course and I think eastern hemisphere has a few members, too.

Agreed. We're not super active with events and whatnot, but you're more than welcome to take charge of that if you like. Plus side is that we're not pushy, there are NO fleet politics, etc. Participate, share stuff in the bank, donate to the projects when you can. We're not at max level with everything yet, but making pretty good progress for the number of people we have that regularly contribute...

That would suit me fine.

I'll leave this fleet by tomorrow. Please send me an invite tomorrow(26th January, 2014) after 1:30 gmt.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

We've bogged down a little because we have a bunch of big upgrades running at once, but keep pushing/grinding, we're making progress!

Spire T1 is close to complete, and Dil Mine and Embassy both also have upgrades coming along (although more costly in DIL).

Keep at it, and we'll start to clear these out and get more rewards opened up. Spire is a nice one to get moving, as there are nice TAC consoles for all damage types, and MK XII ground kits that are big improvements over the previous MK X max we've had. Once we clear the upgrade, we can run a couple provisioning assignments so that we can go buy some of that stuff.

In the interim, once we get some provisions up for the Spire (and you can already do this for the other holdings), check out the NoP public channel (may not be exact name, but can find it by searching or in the forums). They've been giving out free invites to their max tier holdings, so as long as you have provisions, you can go buy stuff from any of their T3 holdings (or T5 starbase). Only limitation is ships, obviously, since you have to be IN the fleet for that, but for the rest, it uses your own provisions, so they've got several fleets that are giving out invites to buy the end-level gear. Also things like the Tailors for uniform unlocks, warp cores, consoles, weapons, whatever. Unlockable 6th DOFF slot for both space and ground as well, which can let you really stack some damage. Costs 150k fleet credits each, though, so stock up!

Lastly, trying to get some interest up for doing some team-ups in the Voth Battlezone. Been grinding that one a lot lately, great payouts in DIL and Voth Marks for running around doing the little missions. As close to 'fun' as they've managed to make any of their grinds to date, or at least the least annoying/obvious. And payouts are nice to the point where I'm refining my max DIL every day and starting to get behind on the stockpile of unrefined. It's rewarding and popular, so sure they'll nerf it sooner or later. Trying to get it while it's still good

Anyway, sending out invites on the fleet channel when I'm on, but more fun with a team or at least a partner, missions go quick. Also doing Colony Invasion every time I log on, for the 50 fleet marks in about 5 minutes to dump into the projects...

Just out of curiosity, how long is this grace period I read about a few posts up? Been a member for about 2 weeks and contributing... so I'm just wondering not trying to ruffle any feathers.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

Totally informal/casual. Usually just triggered by noticing that you've seen the same guy around a while and it's weird that he's still a cadet, or they ask outright. You've been quiet in here too, just didn't draw any attention to it. I'll check it out.

Keep at it, and say hi on the fleet chat when you see people around

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

Well, if you guys want to standardize the promotions, I've got an idea for that.

It has become kind of a tradition to issue a new fleet uniform around the anniversary events.
So With the 4 year anniversary upon us we could have another uniform design contest this time featuring the Odyssey fleet uniform.
Unlike the old one, it is not for free, since it costs dilithium and fleet credits. About 2-3 days worth of resources really.

We can't provide a template for the uniform because it doesn't allow unlockable constume pieces (stupid really).

So we'd have to leave build instructions at a convenient place.


Anyway, If we use the Odyssey uniform it could be a good way to apply for a promotion.
Let's say first application after 2 weeks possible, post a screenshot of your toon in Fleet uniform and wait for the promotion evaluation.
We can keep the current uniform available for cadets of course.


Thoughts?

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

Works for me. I switched from the old fleet uniform to the Odyssey variant we'd been playing with anyway. if someone wants to tweak it, by all means go for it.

In general, our promotion strategy really is just play the game, try and team up with someone on occasion if you see people around, chat a little, and post in here occasionally. If you get forgotten, just post a reminder here and we'll get you to the main Officer level. And for the upper ranks, just do more. Donating to projects, chatting, running events.

We don't really have much command structure or politics to handle, so don't really need much for leadership. We've got a few people with upper-level rights, mostly just spread out by geographical location so better chance of one of them being online, and people that have been playing forever. Outside of a few minor things, though, the general Officer level gets you pretty much run of the fleet...

Fair enough answer for me, and yea. I do keep a low profile most of the time. About half of that is when I'm actually playing it's at an odd time and I very rarely see any other fleet members on. occasionally one other but that's it. As far as on here goes, I prefer the sit back and read mentality rather than commenting, I'm on here regularly, but rarely log in to post, could be months or even years between log-ins on here.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

Just wanted to make sure you didn't feel you're ignoring you

As we're not heavy into Fleet politics and whatnot, we mostly just bump along fairly happily and don't change much. No power struggles or tracking donations to determine rank/priority level. Other than that one bloodless coup I seem to have pulled off last year, been pretty quiet...

If you need attention or a promotion, it's likely that we just didn't notice, not intentional. if no one has taken care of it when i get home, will try and remember to do so.

I didn't think so, was just curious about how long the grace period is, which I think in itself is a great idea... keeps the mooching at a minimum until they have contributed something..

On another topic, I was having a great run tonight when the server went down again.. so I'm done for the night, but I did manage to finish the new mission and I'm wondering did anyone find any tricks to navigating in the dark during the space walk? i got through it in about 45 min on that section... best trick I found was when I had to scan the door I locked on to Tuvok and went to him... other than that it was random luck to hit all the points.
