Are you sick of people acting like smartasses and prescribing complex solutions for simple problems?
In this fleet we let the new players take charge because they know what exactly they need and it's not necessary for self-appointed veterans to act like dictators saying do this, do that and leave the new guys totally clueless and unable to solve problems by themselves.
A lot of people wonder as well why we are creating "new forms of gameplay" and getting confused if we are actually doing elite team ops, roleplaying or some wierd hybrid of both.
The fact is we're not doing anything but treating human players like human beings, thus opening the possibility of using real world logic for team building and player development.
While a lot of people would approach a "what should I do with a cruiser" question from a newbie pilot with a wide variety of do-this-do-that suggestions, I find that a far more effective approach is not to dictate but to coach and mentor in a congenial, non-obstructive format.
After all, everyone has their own vision of what a science fiction spaceship does in combat and how it achieves victory.
Translating ideas into victory is what we do in Redneck Academy. We end up not with a bunch of guys who need direct orders from commanders. We have a team that is dynamic, unified and capable of operating in a very diverse and dynamic order of battle... in short, we work best with PUGs, because we don't discriminate, and we can work with anyone to create battle-winning strategies on the fly.
The reason for increased Elite Space STF apparent difficulty is due to the enhanced plasma weapons proc. Here are some easy counters and pointers on how to use the nifty new undocumented features in Season 6, ranging from defence suppression ability (polaron cannon rapid fire) to automatic repair (SIF generators)
I have been a part of Redneck Academy for a few months now. I started as a Lt. Commander. Now I am a Rear Admiral. My progression has been greatly aided by my affiliation with this Fleet. If I have a question, I have only to ask. The answer I needed, as well as any background information relevent to the question, is conveyed in a kind and positive manner.
We campaign together on the ground and in space. I have learned a great deal by watching the actions of the veteran players. Reading their chat messages in battle give me a great insight into what to do to be successfull.
There is no pressure, or, any negativity involved with participating in Fleet activity, no matter your level of experience. It really is a lot of fun to be a part of this highly knowledgeable and experienced group. Anyone from Ensign on up is welcome. There is even a strong KDF presence for those who enjoy the Klingon way of life.
If you are looking for a place to call home in the STO environment, the Redneck Academy could be what you are looking for. Give us a try.
