Decided to log in and pull our fleet stats.


We've very much got a 'do it as we get to it' attitude, with Fleet Marks usually providing our bottle neck.

That's the way one should do it in my view. It is also quite boring, allocating resources to the starbase. The same thing is the case with the reputation system. I have no problem whatsoever with this part of the game and I can even participate in it in my own way at my own pace.

Perhaps I look not very good, but besides the fleet ships (which is also a matter of taste) I cannot find anything special in the whole fleet/starbase system. So my thumbs are up for Cryptic. It is a nice sidekick, precisely the right thing for a grind. Let's keep it that way. And grats to the guys that make it first to tier five.
Pretty much the same approach and attitude i'm taking with my alt fleet. The starbase system was obviosly designed for larger fleets and small/alt fleets are going to have to spend a lot more time levelling up, as it should be. For small/alt fleets to get there without burning themselves out will mean setting a more reasonable pace. And so far the only thing i've gotten out of it is some upgraded kits, nothing else really catches my eye.

So far so good we'll see where its at a year from now.

I think he simply meant that it isn't a race and running the fleet grind that way is what really makes it painful for those who might complain about it.

I agree with this standpoint. It is designed to discourage content locusts. The more you try to rush through it the more grindy it feels. It was also intended to be undertaken by a fleet, as in an organization of multiple players who wish to collectively work towards a long-term goal.

The fact that we CAN do fleet holdings solo is a bonus, but the requirements should not be scaled down accordingly. If I want to run a starbase with no support, I would ecpect it to be quite difficult with any sort of progress going extremely slowly.

just plain curiosity...
Plus it also prevents fleets from bumping into each other or accidentally grabbing / hitting / what have you to each other. So really it's not bragging, it's a safety issue.

Edit: Why are you walking around a dark room in the first place?

Human nature is to gloat and brag on stuff like this.... Our fleet is on T4 but we focus essentially on "people" being happy not on "numbers"....sorry if I was gloating on respecting others

Starfleet Liberty Force reached tier 4 over the weekend, now starting the long grind to tier 5.

Tal Shiar operatives cut my power lines. I think I've managed to kill all but one or two. I do wish they were as helpful as Borg in naming themselves so I'd know for sure how many were left.

Did you happen to see anyone slip out the back?

Edit: Also bragging is fun and it is cool for watchers to know when the "race" is over.

Not sure how far you've progressed in a video game is something all that impressive worth bragging about to be honest. To each their own I guess.
Captain Kirk is climbing a mountain. Why is he climbing a mountain? Is he learning to fly?
