I have a fleet that is now 175 members strong and growing. I would like to know if there is a way to find out if this is the largest fleet in STO. If it is, can we get STO to make a special fleet badge for my members. Maybe even just add a badge tool bar in the uniform shop. I just need it to be able to take a paste of sybols or icons to center on the badge. For instance, my fleet is the Starfleet Special Operations Group. So I would like to be able to put the special forces sword with 3 lighting bolts at the center of the com badge.
1. As has been demonstrated, yours isn't the largest fleet. And as others have noted, there's a huge difference between having X number of players on paper, and actually having all those people active - especially since plenty of folks are cancelling their subs now or letting them lapse.
2. It's extremely unlikely that Cryptic would give special treatment to any player fleet. It's not impossible - after all, they're giving preferential treatment of a sort to the folks on their new Advisory Council. But a lot of people are unhappy that Cryptic's giving special attention to a minority of players. Can you imagine the outcry if Cryptic gave unique perks to a single fleet? People would hate Cryptic. And other players would hate you. Think about what you're asking. Please.
3. The devs already intend to let us display fleet insignia on starships. Perhaps not badges on our captains, as you're asking, but at least on starships. We can't right now, but it's pretty clear we'll be able to someday.
