I was reading on some threads about the option coming to take control of the fleet if the current leader on the system had been absent for what ever reason....

However on all the Season 6 release notes and on tribble I fail to see any mention regarding this...

Our fleet has been waiting months anxiously waiting this option and as far as i see so are many other fleets who have come under the unfortunate circumstance where they have been left without a leader.

In our fleet the instance that created this issue was a mistake in transferring command leaving our over 100 members 'System' leaderless...

We have sent tickets to Cryptic/Perfectworld only to shrugged off by their standard ' Wait for the system assigned leader to come online (probably never) or reform.. We have spent millions on our fleetbank and also could loose 10s if not hundreds of members if we reform which is really unfair.

We have a voted leadership system, but come season 6, WILL we be able to have our starbase under these circumstances... are we going to be forced to disband??????

OR IS THE FLEET COMMAND option being release??????

I think Cryptic/Perfect world HAS to take this point seriously due to the fact that this is an MMO and built with communities and is not only about content, content, content... but people and the friendships created.

Anyway instead of ranting... I'd like to know IS THIS OPTION being released on season 6 for fleet Leadership control??????

Yes. We were told that a fleet leadership change system would be taking place in season 6 or before where if someone was not logged in for x amount of time then the next highest rank could use a special take over function.

Branflakes can you help with some advice with this or tell us when the take over system will come and how to use it please.

The fleet with all of my Federation characters has been leaderless since April 2010. For a while, I was the only one in it, and have been enjoying the fleet bank for easy transfers. Today there are three of us in it.

I have been thinking about joining a real fleet with some of my characters. I guess I haven't been thinking too hard though.

# 4 Fleet Command and Recruitment
07-04-2012, 04:33 AM
Hi Rickpaaa, and thanks for taking the time to post here... as you may see we're having a small issue with the command system, but your more than welcome to join us ingame.. we have an active fun international fleet with members from all walks of life... feel free to pm me in game wraith@searchlite

Wither we are forced to reform the fleet due to Cryptics/Perfectworlds failure to assist the loyal people who keep them in business we have set up our own fleet channel therefore enabling us to cross communicate with our klingon counterparts.. therefore if reform is the way we have to go... at least we will minimize any outlaying people issues... its just a shame we'd have too loose all the work we have taken into building the fleet... but hey...

They are going to have to put this ingame. If they dont all the fleets that are in this situation are NOT going to be able to do anything with the new Starbases.

The patch today added in a setting to allow people to contribute to the Starbases. Its default is apparently off. Which means that only the Fleet Leader can contribute and purchase anything from the Fleet Starbase. So the Fleet Leader has to go into the setting and turn it on for the membership to be able to interact with the SB. Exactly like setting the permissions for the Fleet bank.

May the Prophets guide us in these cryptic times....

Season 6 is not out on Holodeck, so there are no release notes for it yet.

Anything you read about what is in Season 6 is unofficial or not finalized, and therefore can be changed ... it's only official and finalized upon the actual launch of Season 6 AND NOT BEFORE.

And anything on Tribble or Red Shirt is a work in progress and new features are released there in a piece meal fashion. So there may not be any release notes for a given feature for some time, or even at all. Not all released new features are in the Tribble or Red Shirt release notes (and sometimes not even in the Holodeck release notes).

in EVE if a leader had been away for a certain amount of time you can petition for the reassignment of your CEO, think cryptic needs to move to that kinda system if a leader has been absent (not logged into account ) for say a month or so. cause just turning a blind eye to one of the few things that actually make this game more than just a very large co-op game is very bad for buisness

Our fleet leader left a few months back and in haste transfered leadership to someone who had not logged in since march i believe so we are pretty much up ... creek when starbases come unless the transfer leadership function comes and works for us or support actually replies to our tickets and changes the leader in our fleet as request which we are still waiting to hear back and its been awhile now.

Too many members and too much invested EC wise to reform as well.

# 10 Fleet Control
08-14-2014, 02:35 AM
Someone has taken control of my fleet as well. I can't promote myself back again and the controller is refusing to give me control again. I don't know why this has happened. I am on STO at least once a week. Hardly inactive. Please help me get my fleet back again.
