I can only assume it's because it takes a superior individual to recognize the appeal of playing a Ferasan.

Honestly when I joined I didn't think it would be a big thing, but then I realized that people like fleets that appear to be active (i.e. people talking). So then I started going bazerk in fleet chat and that has seemed to help quite a bit really. Like the occasional "Hello." Then "Hello?" Then "HELLO?!" And finally "IS ANYBODY THERE?!?!?!?!?" All within 10 seconds. Or for conversation when maybe someone is asking me about ground STFs, I'll bring up something as a comparison that could lead to a different question. Like once I was talking with Bob and somehow we got on the conversation of colleges, and I said "I guarantee that the Texas A&M football team will win the BCS National Championship this year!" Bob had an interesting reply but I can't remember it. I think he said he agreed with me.

Basically I've learned that talking a lot and occasional ranting really keeps a fleet going. I haven't seen anyone else talk like I have so I'm all four wheels that keep us going, growing, and dominant.

Also, hello, thanks for stopping by.
I am retired from STO. By the way, hindsight is 20/20.
