Did you miss the 'totally optional' part, where both fleets have to agree to it?

A large fleet decides to crap all over a small fleet. They challenge them to fleet war. The small fleet says no.


WHAT NOW?

City of Heroes had this option. I don't see why they haven't introduced it to the game yet..

They had it where you could buy and place different defenses and such in your base to help defend it when doing that type of a contest.

Maybe they are trying to finish fleshing out the Fleet bases first?
You think that your beta test was bad?

The large fleet posts a FAKE you tube video of them "defeating" the small fleet
boasts all over this forum

or has an agent in the smaller fleet accept the challenge

also... sounds like a sneaky romulan double agent to me.

They have an agent leading the small fleet?

Wow. So they made this small fleet exclusively to get a bunch of unafiliated members and then defeat in pvp a bunch?

one or two fleets go to a lot of trouble to interfere with smaller more successful fleets

Fleet v Fleet would be great, then some individual posters (not to name names) could potentially be in a position to how you say......put up or shutup?

This is the truth it is somewhat refutable IMHO.

well most likely how this will probably work is that fleet will be fighting for that teritory and get for example energy credits for controllng that territory. th is ho it works in world of tanks. now the bigger fleets will have a slight adavnatge depending on how many players will be allowed to fight because they have trained more have the better equipment from starbase etc. if they would do this fleet wars thing it would defenitely revive pvp as a whole new thing. i would agree that maybe fleet wars should be in a timeslot for example at noon so everyone knows what time they should be there or set up a time b/w the fleets.

Wish they did this a great deal. as it would revitalize the pvp base i would suggest forming a Facebook page creating a petition maybe seeing if you could email people who are in positions of power. That and generally more is what is required to get even noticed by a gaming group to listen to what your saying. Including fleet station combat would be awesome as well if you set it up like they did world of tanks for a small bonus if you hold the territory.

The thing is, if a small fleet like that challenged a larger fleet, chances are all 5 of those players would be relatively hard core PvPers, and many of the 100 fleet players might not be. So it could be a situation where the 100-player fleet has a few PvPers who are really into it, but the other 80 non-PvPers in their fleet just get hammered while trying to enjoy PvE.

So something like this, if implemented, might actually lead to large fleets breaking off smaller PvP-focused fleets, so that the PvP portion of the fleet can free-PvP in peace, while not interfering with non-PvP players.

In CoH, the functionality of the base raids was never that great, and they were eventually removed entirely. http://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Base_Raid
