# 1 Rules to making a Fleet?
01-19-2012, 06:11 PM
I got a couple friends to start playing STO. We tried to make a fleet and it said new accounts cannot join fleet. How long till they are not 'new' anymore? Or is it a level requirement?

I believe the time is a total of 20 hours played to unlock chat, forums, fleets... Additionally, I believe it can be gone around by spending or having a balance of C-points (not sure of amount, probably small like $10 ).

According to the F2P Matrix, they should "Join a Fleet (Guild) Unlimited Access".
But if a Silver has the 20hour/C-Points restriction if they try to create a fleet.

I think what the issue could be that the Silvers can not "help you" create the fleet to begin with. If you formed a fleet with Gold members first, then the Silvers should be able to be invited afterwards.

I had a friend play for the first time on the 17th. Literally seconds after he made a character I invited him to our fleet and he was able to accept.

If he bought any CPs or was playing on an account which had purchased a game, or paid a Subscription, at one time he automatically qualifies to join a Fleet.

This was a preexisting fleet? As in it was already created prior to the 17th by "Gold Members"?

Yeah, that too. FTPers can join existing Fleets. They can't start new ones unless the meet the criteria in the Matrix.

Correct. I wasn't trying to say silvers can create a fleet without purchase or 20hrs play. just that silvers are definitely NOT restricted from JOINING a fleet. Sorry if there was confusion.
