# 1 Small Fleet Hits Tier 2 Goal!
12-05-2013, 07:16 AM
I'm so happy to report that last night, I hit my goal of achieving a Tier 2 Starbase for my one-man fleet of 10 alts. I'm so happy!

When Starbases and fleets were first announced a year and a half ago, I read through all the requirements and realized that Tier 2 was about as far as I would get on my own, but that that was fine, based on the payoffs. I don't need the bigger Base with all the fleet ships available. I just wanted a reachable goal to set for myself and a decent sized Base to park my characters.

Well, I worked on it for all this time, taking time off when I'd get tired of the grind, and returning when my batteries were recharged. I made it!

The only problem I had with the entire climb to Tier 2 was the final project to actually upgrade to Tier 2. I was moving along pretty well until that last project, which required 3600 FM, 218k Dil, and 80 non-civilian officers. Wow, that was like running into a brick wall. It seems to me that the requirements for this were much tougher than anything I'd done previously.

Obviously, anything related to Tier 3 and above should be tougher to get, but making the final project for Tier 2 SO much more difficult seemed a little out of line with what had come before.

Anyway, I can now turn my attention to my Dilithium Mine. I'm at Tier 0, but hope to eventually get to Tier 2 for all the Dil discounts (and to have a place to go and watch Dil being mined).

Congrats!!

My 2-player fleet (consisting of my fiancee and I) is hitting T1 for all tracks this coming Sunday. It's tough but it's like starting up a business all by yourself, all the bootstrapping is fulfilling and worth it at the end of the day

All the best!

WOW!

Congrats!!!

I too am a one person fleet with all my alts... and I'm closing in on tier 2 myself.

Thanks to you, gives me hope that I can achieve it as well. And frankly.. I can use any hope right now.


Thanks again for posting this!

Congrats, Chief! You have the patience of a surgeon, and the focus of a T-1000. On a related note, I'm gonna paint my house this spring, should you wish to stop by and watch it dry.

Congrats! T2 is when the Starbase starts to look like a real starbase. And yeah, the T3 upgrades are pretty harsh. And they're meant to be.

My fleet is called The Dharma Initiative.

Yeah, it's not too original, but it seems to go well with my main alt, Admiral Kate Austen of the U.S.S. Not Penny's Boat.
