My original FAQ was incorrect in that it stated that Squad Support would allow you to enter Fleet Actions outside your natural level. This is false. Squad Support will not change the level band of Fleet Actions you enter, and it will not allow you to enter Fleet Actions that you do not meet the requirements for. Thanks!
This is not acceptable, and i can only conclude that either someone has been grossly negligent or intentionally decieved us.
In fact you are decieving us all even now.
Yeah, while I wouldn't call it Deceiptful, I did find it VERY disappointing that Squad support didn't actually end up supporting the fleet actions. Ever since the level bandin was put in place, 'community' has taken a really big hit. I understand why they did it, but taking away the OPTION to play these FLEET actions with your fleet because many of them are ranked differently was a really big downer...
Hopefully they get a solution in place for this soon...
I would chalk it up less to deceit and more to bad communication and management both internally and externally. The developers that post here probably do not have have access to the Web page which is most likelyrun by Cryptic's marketing department. They simply need to communicate better between the two and get the error corrected on the Web page.
It is pretty standard operating procedures that those that do the development do not control the web page. They do have access to the Forums though and thus they used it to alert us that a mistake had been made. Now they just need to get their marketing folks to change the web page.
On the other subject i hope they do get a fix together that will allow Fleet members of all levels to do fleet actions. Or if it is not possible to modify the current fleet actions then create a new class of them that all levels can join into.
