Fleets ? Why Should I Bother ?

First, you shouldn't have just joined a random fleet. There are a lot of good ones, and a lot of bad ones. To be honest, anyone who just spams invites is probably a bad one.
Secondly, there are a lot of reasons to join. You get access to fleet ships, fleet gear, and some other stuff that you'd miss out on if you aren't in a fleet. It's also a great way to make friends, and its nice to be able to run STFs without having to PUG it.
As for the contributions, once you play for a month or so, you'll find that you'll start having extra commodities, doffs, boffs, etc. Donating to a fleet project gets you fleet marks, which in turn are used for the fleet gear I mentioned.
Finally, if you aren't happy with the fleet you're in, leave. You can always quit, and find another fleet. The one I'm in now is the third fleet I've been in, and TBH, it's the best. It certainly has the friendliest people, and it's advanced the most out of any. Msg me in-game at nelson@tcostik if you have any more questions.
