Otherwise, I agree with all the above suggestions.

I really wish there was a way to limit contributions by percentage. For example, Specialists could only donate 25% of a project, Elites 50%, and Masters 100%. It'd be a lot easier.

I wish playing the game, and enjoying the universe would also advance fleet marks. Nukara gives me a headache. Maybe some of the fleet star base actions are fun. I kinda enjoyed the No Win Scenario.

A little tip: When you start a Tholian mission, grab the map wide Thinning the Hive mission. It gives 10 FM and all you have to do is kill 50 Tholians. Something you will do anyway with most of the missions.

Now I know you are only supposed to get FM during the scheduled events. I don't know if that is the case as I have gotten them every time I've logged on to run it. Either that, or I have been exceedingly lucky to log on during the events.

yes you have to run provisioning missions to stock up. a new member could potentially have credits from another fleet, turn up and take everything in one go forcing us to run more provisioning missions. we dont really lose anything except time.
Ahh that's where the little confusion came from, no worries nothing to worry about... Hah ha

...and provisioning missions, that was the reminder I needed, I knew there was something I forgot thanks for the reminder. THAT is why I want Shadowcat Elite rank and above to be able to use the fleet provisional stores.

Thanks Bob!

They can still improve upon the system now the bulk of it is out, and that's a good idea!

On question before I decide to join or not.

Who supplies the Meow Mix? Or do I have to bring my own? =;_;=

There's food in the fleet bank once you make it to Shadowcat Specialist.

Edit: We have a four-way tie for fourth place! I need more votes if I am going to be able to grab the top four choices for our next round of voting. VOTING ENDS TUSDAY!!! (whenever I get around to it)

Using my best judgement I have promoted the following characters to Shadowcat Elite as they have been in the fleet for very nearly 2 months, been active and shown that they have been helpful as well as social. I'm sure more promotions will come soon to, Bob I'm sure would like to promote some of you at some point!

  1. Arokh
  2. Catula
  3. Dra'konas and Sabertooth
  4. Emi'Ree'Hee
  5. Khajiit
  6. Mrs. 1st and The 1st
  7. Narill
  8. Panther
  9. Panthero and Panthra
  10. Rudiar
  11. Se'khmet
  12. Sekmet and S'hmarr
  13. Spot and Vorenath


P.S. We should definitely get together for a fleet pics event real soon!

Copy of fleet email attached.

That's right, we have made it to Season 6!

We need to name our starbase. There is a poll going on that ends on Tuesday. Tuesday, I will take the top four and pit them against each other. Full details when I send that link out. Links can be found in our Starbase Holdings tab and in the forum.


You must be a Shadowcat Specialist or higher to contribute to Starbase Projects. This is to protect us from the Fleet Credit farmers. Most of the projects will fill up quickly. What has been a slow spot for us is Fleet Marks; having those in stock will almost always guarantee the ability to contribute.


The Shadowcat Masters have discussed and made a change to our ranking system. Shadowcat Elite used to be automatic at three months. That is no longer the case. While we dropped the minimum requirement to two months, promotion to Shadowcat Elite is now by appointment ONLY. So not everyone will be promoted once they hit the minimum time.

The reason for this is two-fold:
1) We want to be able to reward those who are truly active in the fleet with the ability to have a little more control.
2) We Shadowcat Masters cannot be on all of the time. We need help maintaining our fleet holdings.

So Shadowcat Elites, you will have the ability to plan our upcoming Starbase Projects in the event you see a space open. We are wanting to follow the following plan:
Line 1: Tactical Only
Line 2: Tactical Only
Line 3: Engineering, Science (alternating)

We want to reach our tactical teirs as quick as we can buy Fleet Ships. When it comes to the Special Projects, just pick a random one that uses resources we haven't burned through lately. If you see a Featured Project come up (like the one that gave us windows) put that one in.

Elites, you also have the ability to send fleet emails like this one. However, please clear them with the Shadowcat Masters first.

Abuse of your new powers can and will result in your demotion.


Happy Hunting!

And yes, we need fleet pics. We NEED them.
