Since 10F has a good mix of long time players and knowledgeable (sans sanity) people I'll post this here.
Recently my fleet had a little tournament in which we split the fleet into two teams. An equal number of vice admirals as well as a smattering of lower level officers were put on teams and we hashed it out in a private instance pvp. The winners would be allowed to carry their respective team color in their fleet notes. (Blue Squadron, Red Squadron) It was good fun to be had by all. The winning team (Red Squardon) then had a private tournament amongst themselves to see who could carry the Red Squadron Ace title in their fleet notes.
As you could imagine the Ace title came down to a competition between 3 escort captains, all very competent.
1 tactical (Defiant retrofit)
1 engineer (Fleet escort)
1 science (Defiant retrofit)
In the end the tactical captain was able to squeak by with the title with a score of 5-4 against the engineer and 5-3 against the science.
My question is this: Would this be something other fleets are interested in doing? As the Red Squadron Ace of my fleet i'd be more than willing to create an Ace chat channel where we can organize our squads and share ideas, offer advice and the like. Plus I imagine it would be good fun RP wise.
With foundry closer and closer to fruition, special missions and challenges could be designed for this elite cadre of captains.
I can't say that I speak on behalf of Ten Forward's fleet, though we're not active anymore, I say it's something, if we had enough interested, that might go over well since there's several of us who enjoy PvP matches.
If there's a freelancer area, I'm more than willing to go in.
