I'm new to the whole gameplay part of the game. I've been on the forums for a few years, but never payed or played the game before, until a couple days ago. I'm always looking for a fleet if anyone is looking for members.
Welcome to the game! I recommend just playing for a while solo to figure out how you prefer to play. Once you've learned a bit how teaming works, when you prefer to play, how in-character you get, and decide what faction to focus on, you'll be ready to look for a fleet.
