@Hero_Swe: how do you get the uniform? or is that just custom gear?

For now it's custom gear, until Legend promotes me or makes the uniform official and fixes the ranks :P

#257 Posted by buft (3298 posts) -

ah right sweet, if it becomes official will that mean our own characters will sport the colors or is it like the guild tabbard in WOW, where a small nominal fee will buy us the outfit

Not actually sure. I think it might use up the actual fleet outfit slot that you get when you join a fleet. It should be free since that slot itself you get is free.

#267 Posted by BeautifulSpaceCowboy (592 posts) -

I will be on later tonight (around 11 pm est.), so feel free to friend me (Kringle@Zombienutz0). I can toss anyone an invite needing one. Also, congrats to on the promotion.

#268 Posted by Akyho (1549 posts) -

Allright I am Akyho@Akyho

@Legend: @Hero_Swe: Heyo, glad to see some more activity in the forums! :)

I got an invite no problem once people came back during the F2P livestream, but ever since then I'm still at Softshell. Sent a note to Jeff about helping out, but they're drowning in PMs and he was deep into the Trackmania server... Would appreciate a bump to a regular member who can invite, and once classes calm down a little I'll be on more often to level up this new F2P character (Wox@Brackynews). He's a dapper and spindly fellow.

In my main's fleet (Proteus) I am a rank 5 officer responsible for banking and crafting, so I've been spending most of my game time there being useful. ;) The fleet leader would be happy to vouch for me if that's of any benefit later on. Cheers.

#270 Edited by Hero_Swe (1079 posts) -

Will send an invite right as the patching finishes and then I'll go to bed. 5:00 am here :P

EDIT: Found and bumped up Wox. You can now invite. Tried sending invite to Proteus@Brackynews but it didn't work. Sorry @Brackynews

#271 Edited by kristov_romanov (438 posts) -

How active is the fleet? I am thinking I'll ditch the crew I am with at the moment. I have been with em for about a year but it's turning into a troll-fest.

#272 Posted by insane_shadowblade85 (1324 posts) -

I've always seen at least 3 to 4 people online whenever I log in. I was playing a few minutes ago and decided to turn it off after I kept getting killed in the Sharien's Swords mission. That damn I.R.W Esemar keeps killing me with it's Super Torpedo combo >_<

After I was done with the ground mission on the station I thought it would be easy, but man, I must've died 7 times by that thing. No matter how much I widdle it down it'll do that tractor beam/shield drain thing and then demolish me with those three torpedoes. It's frustrating when the auto-attack doesn't let me attack the incoming torpedoes because it's still attacking the ship.

#273 Posted by Mageknight (117 posts) -

Could I get a fleet invite? Welshy@clevver (that's two v's, btw). I've been getting way into this game for some reason and I want to see if we can get a starbase rolling.

#274 Posted by ghoti221 (40 posts) -

Any officer lobsters still playing relatively regularly? My wife and I want to start doing stuff with the starbase, but, as Softshells, all we can do is stand in the main concourse and admire the view. :) (I'm Buzzkill Hanrow, and she's Cameron.)

#275 Edited by fisk0 (3270 posts) -

Well, my current main character is Damur@fisk0, and I'd like to join (doesn't seem like anybody with invite permission is online right now).

#276 Posted by Otogi (218 posts) -

Are you duders still recruiting? If so, send me a message at Gytar@Dudepeel and I'm totally at your disposal to do stuff!

#277 Posted by Arrested_Developer (697 posts) -

The Season 6 trailer has convinced me to download the game.  Haven't played since beta, be gentle.

#278 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7612 posts) -

How is the new fleet stuff? I haven't played since any of the season 6 stuff was added, but I might be convinced to finally join a fleet if there's actually some purpose to it now.

I was reading the official forums, but they seem to do nothing but complain about lock boxes over there.

#279 Posted by Arrested_Developer (697 posts) -

So I heard through the grapevine that someone had stolen everything from the fleet bank and the fleet has broken up.  Is that true?

#280 Posted by ghoti221 (40 posts) -

@Arrested_Developer: My wife's online now, and there's still a fleet and there's still stuff in the fleet bank. I haven't been able to reach an officer though since we were invited in a couple of weeks ago.

#281 Posted by insane_shadowblade85 (1324 posts) -

I think it was Mike Horne. Those Hornes, man, they're very sneaky.

#282 Posted by Brackynews (3966 posts) -

@Mageknight: @Otogi: If you have not already been invited, I will do so shortly. :)

@Arrested_Developer: I never saw anything happen when it happened, but Cryptic has been really good about restoring banks, due to the account hacking by gold farmers. I don't know if that's actually what happened in SNL's case with "Mike" but I do know there are fleet leaders who had their accounts hacked and everything stolen. With the new security it shouldn't be as much of an risk. Without knowing the situation, I think any 2010-2011 massive theft should be given the benefit of the doubt; hacking was rampant and Cryptic was clueless.

@WinterSnowblind: I like it. They launched the season broken of course, but it's looking better now. Give it 2-3 more months. lol "Purpose" is relative, it's a resource sink, so you need to want the benefits that a starbase will offer, which will not be superior to DS9 or ESD. The way the system is designed, it is entirely possible to fleet hop to buy higher tier items.

#283 Posted by Arrested_Developer (697 posts) -
@Brackynews: Throw me one of those invites too.
#284 Posted by ZagZagovich (737 posts) -

me too!

#285 Posted by Brackynews (3966 posts) -

@Arrested_Developer: Got you.

@ZagZagovich: Don't have your character name! Need the full thing. But I do have you on my Steam list, so catch you sometime.

#286 Posted by insane_shadowblade85 (1324 posts) -

I should come back to this game. I want to get the largest ship I can get!

#287 Posted by NakAttack (1289 posts) -

Don't know where else to post this, so i'm going to post it here. finished/ filled out a few starbase projects. filled out the bank and added 275000 credits. Najo@kimballnater.

#288 Posted by kristov_romanov (438 posts) -

G'day all, is there anyone about that could queue up some fleet projects? Cheers :)

#289 Edited by Brackynews (3966 posts) -

@NakAttack: @kristov_romanov: Sup duders, thanks for posting the notes here, I saw 'em. Sorry for the absence. I promoted a couple people up so they could manage projects as well. Just can't log in as regularly while I'm swamped.

Also great job with the push at finishing projects. Totally threw off my estimates. ;)

#290 Posted by kristov_romanov (438 posts) -

@Brackynews: Thanks for sorting it out mate!

#291 Posted by Brackynews (3966 posts) -

Just a note that the Season 7 Tribble test weekend is on now. Looks like they're just asking for 1 hour spent? Good because that's about all I have. lol

#292 Posted by kristov_romanov (438 posts) -

Is anyone else getting into the Winter Wonderland stuff this year? I am, they have added a fair bit more than last year. Plus.... BREEN SHIPS!!!!! THEY BE FREE!!!!

#293 Edited by Brackynews (3966 posts) -

Sorry to be away. Just too busy, and trying to give my SWTOR characters a little more love (meaning ~5 hours a month instead of 0 ;).

Last time I was on, Hero was a bit more active. If y'all need something I always check my user profile wall ahead of any inbox @mentions.

#294 Posted by Nasos100 (727 posts) -

@Brackynews: are there are still enough ppl playing on the GB crew?

#295 Posted by Fruitcocoa (474 posts) -

Is this still a thing? Me and a friend started playing Star Trek Online a couple of days ago and would love to join you guys. Invite me - kallekovacs@mordecai :D

#296 Edited by Brackynews (3966 posts) -

@nasos100: We still have our main starbase grinder, and a few folks here and there. Me, I just popped in to get my 3-year anniversary ships. Have a bit of time now that it's uni break week and I'm not travelling.

@fruitcocoa: If you're not already in a fleet, I will invite you. Should be a pop-up window right after you log in, so don't decline it. ;)

Edit: Game isn't recognising the userid you gave. Feel free to send anyone who's online in the fleet a PM for an invite.

#297 Edited by HeavyDuty32 (302 posts) -

So does the crew still exist? I logged in and wasn't a part of it any more, and I couldn't find it in the fleet search, but I seem to remember that thing never really worked that well.

#298 Posted by MichaelBach (856 posts) -

I'm would like to join as well if it still exists!

#299 Posted by Brackynews (3966 posts) -

@michaelbach: @heavyduty32: Sorry to have missed your posts until now. If you're not already invited since you posted, just send a note to me in game, or PM your character@account name on my wall here. The fleet finder *should* work, but you're right it's fussy.

#300 Edited by PsEG (3489 posts) -

Any further requests or inquiries to join GB's STO crew should go in this newer thread. Thanks!
