View Full Version : Searching for an ACTIVE fleet.
03-30-2010, 08:19 AM
I have come to the conclusion that finding an ACTIVE fleet to join might be the best course of action.
Even though I just made Commander 0, I have been playing since launch.....but there is more to this story.
I work for the USGS (US Geological Service) and will, from time to time, be called away to some small unheard of patch of the world for a few weeks here and there. Since launch I have had to spend 2 weeks in Midway (the island of WWII fame) and a 10 days in American Samoa studying a fault line. So from time to time I might drop off the face of the earth for a little bit, but I will re-surface as I always do.
I am looking for the following in a fleet.
Active, I would like to always have a few people to talk to and do missions etc etc with whenever I am on.
Organized. I can not stand disorganization on any level.
Mature. I am in my low 30's and usually can not/will not tolerate teenage shenanigans.
Helpful. This mmo is drastically different than any other mmo I have ever played. If I have a question about theory or missions or something, I would appreciate an honest and truthful answer. I am not a person who asks questions first. I practice the school of theory to try something, study something and give it an honest try.....if I am asking a question it usually is because I have exhausted all my resources.
I am looking for a long term commitment...on my behalf and on a new fleet's behalf. I am not a player who stirs the pot, or riles up the monkeys so to speak. I will however say it as it is. With this said, yes I can come across as a jerk. It is who I am. I'll tell you as I see it. If someone is being a d-bag, I will tell them so.
Above all else, I am looking for a place that will be around for a while. Somewhere to complete endgame tasks, discover new content, and be on the cutting edge so to speak.
**Bonus, if you have an active website, and possible ventrilo, that is a big bonus.**

Project Navras may very well be the fleet you're looking for. We're a fleet nearing 50 ships, at the moment, devoting ourselves to enjoying every aspect that Star Trek Online has to offer, whether it's RP, PVP, or simply good, old fashioned PVE, with raids and fleet actions. We have our own forums, voice comms, and weekly schedule of events-- with member access to the Fleet Bank, and regularly-held contests for our members.
We have a complete award/medals system on our forums, thus allowing our members to earn commendations and decorations from their actions within the fleet. We also have divisions, allowing you to devote yourself to certain duties/responsibilities within the fleet that will help you in progressing through our ranking system.
If you're interested, then it all starts by checking out our fleet recruitment thread. The link is located in my signature-- and after that, check out our website and forums at www.ProjectNavras.com -- you might even decide to fill out an application. ;)

Please check out The Hammerfist Clan. We are a multi-gaming community, very active in-game as well as on our own website hammerfistclan.com
We cater to the more mature player, 18+ only. Those who like to have fun in a laid back atmosphere. And we understand that real life comes before the game.
We are a dual faction clan. The Hammerfist Fleet (Federation), and The House of Hammerfist (KDF).
I hope you will consider our community :)
Information from our forum post here on the STO site.
Who are we?
We mainly cater to the mature player. Players who have time restraints, family, spouses, full time jobs. Players who know what it's like to have bills and mortgages to pay. Players who know what "waggro" is (I just described myself!) We know real life commitments are a priority with older more mature gamers, and thus we'll never overload you with requirements, and expect you to jump through a bunch of silly hoops just to get a few hours of gaming in with your friends.
Some of our core values and offerings:
*A thriving healthy community, filled with activity. Members are encouraged to become involved and speak their minds. Everyone has a voice, and using it helps us grow wiser and gives us the means and information necessary to continually improve!
* Not just another guild, but an actual community for members to socially interact with other members on a personal level. I've made a good many friends through guilds, a few have even become real life friends. It's our mission to offer a respectable environment void of idiots and muppet heads (yes I said muppet heads...remember them??) to everyone who walks the path of adventure with us.
*A golden rule we believe in: Treat others as you would like to be treated. We like everyone to think of their fellow members and guild mates as family not just another number or body. Get to know your fellow guild mates, and most importantly treat each and every new member with respect. We're all on the same team and working for the same cause, It's important to know you can count on your new brother or sister in a pinch
* Officers - not an elite club. Officers are there for the people, and represent the masses. Officers earn their places among us, and are expected to earn their keep. At no time do we ever plan on making the officership a "cool club for kids".
These are a few of the basic values we carry with us, whatever the cause or game may be, these will always travel with us.
Below is our guild summary.
Guild Name: The Hammerfist Clan - [THC] [HFC] [HGC]
Guild Website: hammerfistclan.com | net | org
Main Time Zone: [USA]
Web Admin: Brakkish
We're an adult guild looking for mature members age 18 or older. We're a social/casual guild passionate about our gaming. How you choose to spend your gaming time is up to you. Dictating how and when you need to play is not our style, we understand part-time gamers with full-time lives.
It's our goal to provide a friendly, stress free environment in which to enjoy the game. If you are looking to join us, some things you should keep in mind are: We value friendship over loot and hoarding. Guilds can be an excellent place to meet new friends and share good times and experiences that keep with you for years. Squabbling over loot has no place here. Providing a decent environment, void of riff-raff and distractions is an A-1 priority in any MMO we play. Leaving the drama behind and entering a world of fantasy and fun is what it's all about.
Guild category: Adult 18+
Voice: Yes, Ventrillo - lightspeed
Recruiting members status: Open to friendly adults 18 years of age or more.
Server type: Apache - Linux [stable, secure, reliable]
Forum Software - Vbulletin with a professional license. [see why we use the best]

As a representative of the Canadian Federation it is my honour to extend an invitation to you Hellixx.
Our members are mature and practical in their conduct. We were formed by casual players whom like to have all the benefits of a fleet without any of the hassles of a rigid command structure. While we may be casual we are very dedicated. Above all else our fleet is about getting together and having fun with our members. The majority of our members are Canadian and American, but don't let that hold you back, we are open to everyone. We have a dedicated Ventrilo server for Fleet communication.
We currently have over 130 helpful, active members and are growing every day. We are currently active across all NA time zones.
So if you like what you hear, please come and check out our site. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or any of our other fleet members.
Thank you for your consideration,
The Canadian Federation (http://canadianfederation.forumotion.com/forum.htm)

I think the Sentinels would be a perfect fit for you. We do have ventrillo and a website as well as many active members. I encourage you to check us out.
The Sentinels are a multi-gaming community with an average age of 30+ and no drama!
We have an active membership in several different MMO's and are building our Starfleet Division here in STO. At this point we have about 50 to 60 active members in our fleet and are steadily growing. The overall guild has over 500 active members and we also maintain our own guild Ventrilo server. We look for quality over quantity, and have a very thorough application process. Its our goal to make sure you are as happy with us as we will be with you.
Our retention rate is very high as we promote more of a gaming community then a single game guild.
Feel free to check out our recruitment thread at http://forums.startrekonline.com/showthread.php?t=94701 or just follow the links in my signature to learn more about us.
Feel free to contact any of us ingame for a invite.

Was not expecting too many responses!
I am impressed with everything everyone has brought to the table so far.
I have been actively checking everyone out, and have applied to one or two offers so far.
Hopefully this can wind down and I will have a new fleet to blow stuff up in the name of.

You sound like you would fit in very well with COGs. We are a group of like minded players that feel the game is best enjoyed in a group. We work together to make the game more fun and to promote group play. Our goal is to make it possible for our members to always have the help they need to complete those hard missions and encounters.
1. Must be mature
2. Need to use Ventrilo (its easy to set up and a big help)
3. We take care of our own
4. Wear the fleet uniform
5. Have fun
We do all aspects of the game and don't tell you how to play. We always are well organized and willing to help out players. In fact officers in the fleet are required to help players that need help, but we like helping so its not a big deal. We use vent to better communicate. I think you would find a bunch of us in the same age and maturity levels. We also have a few other members in the armed forces.
Just give me a tell if you are interested.
