I'm starting this thread in the hopes of generating help and support for those of us who prefer to be in a fleet of our own. Maybe you had a bad experience with another fleet, or maybe you like to play solo but don't want to give up the advantages of being in a fleet.

I realize it can be tough to find people to stand in to create a fleet. I'm actually a pretty social player, but just haven't liked fleet politics. Still, it's been a challenge to get 4 other people together at the same spot at the same time.

To help people in my situation, I've begun a chat channel in game called FleetofOne. If you need help to create a fleet or are willing to lend an alt not currently in a fleet to help someone else start one, please subscribe.

Good thinking. Might get some players some help and cut down on the chat spam.

Thought I was going to have to object to your name for a second but Fleet of One is ok. Anti-Social Fleet of One is already trademarked and in use by my fleet...of three.

I'm totally happy to change the name. Don't mean to step on any toes. I guess I've just watched too many commercials for the US Army.

As an aside, I do plan to keep one character aside and permanently unfleeted so that I can always help others form a fleet.

I was just kidding. :-)

I totally got it.

I also really appreciate the name of your fleet.

Anti-social players unite! oh wait...

Anti-social players unite separately! That's better...

I'm hoping that if enough people sign onto the FleetofOne chat channel, anyone who's interested in making a fleet (of one, two, three, or four) can find some people ingame to help.

I can say that I'll always be willing to lend a unfleeted alt and never ask for anything in return.

Hey, I've been looking for something similar. I'm not a fleet guy, and not really that social (in MMOs anyway). But I'd like to see some of the fleet "stuff" just for fun.

I don't have alts...just me...er...one character.

As long as I don't have to change my uniform, or come to any meetings, I'm up for it. I usually play late at night during Sunday and Monday (I work Wed-Thurs), CST.

Oh, I'm not a Hardcore player...I don't play missions to gain rewards, I play them to have fun.

I'll add the channel to my chat.

I think we're in really similar places. But I'm certainly not proposing a fleet. I'm proposing a resource for any one that wants to start a fleet but isn't able to get the required 5 people together at one place (in EST) at one time.

Here's what I'm hoping for: You want to form a fleet and you need one or more people to help. You can send out a call on the FleetofOne channel. Maybe it's you and three friends. Or maybe it's just you. Maybe you have an alt in another fleet and have been frustrated that you aren't able to contribute to starbase projects or maybe you just want to check out the fleet system while being in control.

I just want people (including me) to be able to experience every part of the game that they want to.

Sounds good to me. Maybe I'll try and start a Fleet someday. In the meantime, I'll keep the channels open.
