    qapla'!

    with the delta recruit event dropping in a couple days, House of Beautiful finds itself in a familiar situation... pretty much the same situation HoBO was in in the leadup to Legacy of Romulus. we are a fully developed t5 fleet with limited opportunities for fleet-credit generation, and we are looking at a heap of new toons to enter the game together, level together, and compete with established mains for fleet credit.

    we have decided to once again birth a sister fleet, 'Beautiful Annex'.

    because of this, there is no more direct recruitment to HoB. new toons will need to earn their initial 75k in the annex fleet, at which point they can ask to be transferred to HoB. the likelihood of that transfer happening is directly related to how much of your time or resources you have invested into HoB.

    the annex fleet has no 'inviter' rank. instead it has a 'from HoB' rank. this is a special rank that is used to temporarily import people from HoB. people that want to unload some dil or marks for a limited time and then head back to HoB. if you elect to do this, make sure somebody makes a note of your HoB rank in the officer comments field in the annex fleets roster.

    once a toon achieves 'beautiful' rank in the annex fleet (75k credit on the board), they can use the global House of Beautiful channel to request a base-invite to HoB to use the t5 fleet store. any member of HoB ranked 'initiate' or higher is able to send base-invites.

    My only concern about this is the need to create another fleet. Many HoB members, myself included, run or have characters in small fleets already. IMO, this is just making more work for everyone with the development of yet another fleet. I see and understand the reasoning behind this move, I just don't think making another fleet is the answer.

    hmmm...
    if its true that many people already have toons in small fleets, that would actually be a great thing.
    in all honesty i dread doing another fleet grind. the fed fleet isnt even done yet, and getting these fleets over the finishing line is always a drag.

    the only thing that makes me hesitate is that there are so many dead-end kdf fleets that dont actually have real kdf members putting effort into the fleet (filling the doffs and dil), which is an even worse scenario for fleet credit.
    perhaps it would be a good idea to get a list together of some vetted and legit kdf fleets so ppl can find places to put a delta toon where it can earn credit.

    That's my thinking... There's such an overabundance of dead fleets, sure. But there are also fleets out there that are active, but struggling to get things done due to lack of active members.

    (Insert Shameless Plug)

    Mine is one of those struggling. I am online everyday trying to get projects filled on both my KDF and Fed fleets. But I can't do it all alone, and almost all of my formery active members have either left the game or just log in long enough to maybe do DOffing, and then logout again. Had I known how bad things would be at this time with the KDF numbers dwindling as they are, I never would have made my KDF fleet. I did though and so I donate everything I can to fleet projects and whatever else I can to keep things going.

    The mentality of a lot of players is "Why join a small fleet, when I can just join a large one and get everything I need without having to donate?"

    That is part of the problem... Fed and KDF. People want the benefits of a 5/3/3/3 fleet without doing to work to get there.

    so what is the name of your kdf fleet?
    i think i want to get some sort of dialogue happening in various places. delta noobs are going to be everywhere in only a few hours, and it would be great if we knew of some fleets to refer them to that are actually tended to by attentive fleet leaders.
    ideally we would have a system where people could enlist their delta toon knowing that they havent joined a dead-end fleet where the leaders let project sit open for weeks waiting for doffs, while at the same time beautiful can avoid the problems associated with a lack of fleet credit and without having to actually commit to taking on another fleet building task.

    Mine is called jInmol qulbo'Degh

    Granted, it is small and barely into the Tier 2 projects, but I am basically running it by myself. As I said, what few members I have left are only on for a few minutes at a time and haven't contributed anything substantial in a long time. I do, however, try to keep things going, but I could certainly use some help with new members and even experienced HoB personnel who can help run things. I'm not a dictator and I admit that I am having a hard time developing the fleet pretty much on my own.

    This all sounds very complex.

    Is it fun? Do people hang out and be social at times or is it grinding full time mostly?

    Seems to be pretty easy to level up doing missions. :)

    people do both. i am not a super social person and tend to be lonewolf, and focus more on the grind.

    the episode missions will carry you to about lvl 57, then its a real grind to 60. you also have a few things that are less visible you will want to level up, like reputation, doffing commendation, and post-60 specialisation.
