I'm looking for a fleet to join. Now, I'm pretty particular so I'll describe the type of group I'm looking for. If a group like this exists please let me know.
Small- ideally less than 20 people. I don't want to be a face lost in a crowd. Think Cheers, where everyone knows your name because everyone is friends. Not a giant guild where you never talk to a person twice and people come and go without notice.
Role Players- A group that immerses themselves in the ST aspect of the game but still plays the game. Fleet uniforms maybe, or RP style chat while playing, but still goes and does stuff in the game.
Casual/Active- An active bunch but who aren't on 24/7. Some regular play times where people are online and playing together but everyone also has jobs/lives.
Team Fun- A group that works well together and plays in order to play together. Whether this is PVP, PVE, STF, Foundry missions doesn't matter. But having fun together is the primary goal.
I am saying this from a person who has been in your situation in the past. Although the small close nit feel of a 20 member fleet can seem like the better way to go....my experience has not been good with that small of a number. I fell large fleets if managed properly are the best. More members the better as far as activity goes, fleet bank use ect. It is hard to coordinate events and plan missions when you have less of a pool to grab from.
12th Fleet is a very large fleet of very active members all over the STO world. It is also casual. Most of us are in the 30 -35 range with jobs and families. You put in as much time as you want to it. Everyone here is very welcoming and helpful. Fleet Chat is always buzzing with people ready to do a mission with ya. It is very well run and organized and for a large fleet very close nit.
You really should check out "The 12th Fleet" in starbase one on this forum. It will have links to more information for you. They even have an online magazine...how cool is that?
12th fleet is set up with several divisions which all make up and are a part of 12th fleet. I think most divisions consist of less than 50 members. They range from focus on Role Playing, STF's, PVE, PVP and so on.
I have made several new friends in a short time across the fleet and often communicate with members across the fleet when I am on. It is great when I need help or want to do something there is usually someone ready and willing to join me. The fleet is full of very knowledgeable players.
I am part of the Medical Division of 12th fleet which is more heavily based on Role Playing. The Medical Division of the 12th Fleet consists of somewhere around 35 - 40 members. We are a good group of players and I promise you won't get lost in this fleet. I have also been in big fleets where that has happened but this one is not like that.
So if you are looking for that team type feel and RP then 12th fleet might be for you. Medical Division is starting bi-weekly RP missions next week. Go ahead check us out and ask to join Medical Division...it might be the best fit for you. Make sure to tell them Doctor Shelby sent you......
