FAQs about being in a fleet
* Q) What is a fleet for?
A) There are many answers to this question depending on the fleet that you join. Some fleets focus on different aspects of the game including PVE, PVP, role playing, Max Leveling, and socializing. No matter what at some point you will want to be in a fleet for end game content. The game can only be played solo for so long before you run out of story lines and want to take on the challenge of working with others on a team and will need a fleet to get the max level elite gear. Although I have heard stories of individuals that have taken alternate toons and made a fleet completely by themselves; I am sure that they must have taken a very long time and payed thousands upon thousands of dollars to do so with the higher level dilithium requirements. Here in I.Q. we we tend to be more friendly than most of the max level fleets and try to combine the whole social aspect with max level/end game content by sharing builds and strategy with each other. We all feel that sharing each others builds and strategy is more fun and better for the fleet as a whole as compared to keeping how your doing that much DPS a secret from your fleetmates. We have also heard of large fleets with commanders that act as such booting all of the members but their friends/founders after the lower ranking members had worked diligently to reach the fleet to max level.
* Q) What can I get from the fleet?
* Q) How can I get on board and help my fleet out?
A) Well 1st
are to hang out in game and be friendly, helpful to new and old members (yes us old timers learn a thing or two every once in a while from noobs too), and share a funny thought or two in fleet chat. After you have a good helping attitude then there are nearly always projects under the fleet holdings tab that are open for donations. By donating to these projects it will help our fleet grow in its ability to provide gear to its members. This act is not selfless however when you help grow the fleet in this way because by donating to these projects you also help yourself earn fleet credits which you will need in order to get the fleet gear that will make you into a bad-ass in game
as well as it makes it so that as a fleet member you grow the fleet so that the fleet can give you even better gear and make you an ever bigger bad-ass.
We do try to keep our roster at a number that is both good for growing the fleet through having enough active individuals but at a number that keeps it from being like many max roster fleets that move projects along so quickly that you almost do not have time to donate to a project before it is on cooldown.
* Q) What should I donate?
* Q) I really like I.Q. and want to bring over an Alternate toon to the fleet…is that allowed?
A) I personally like to answer this question with a heavy dose of sarcasm and big capital letters saying "OF COURSE NOT" followed by a bunch of exclamation points while I simultaneously point out how many alternate toons (and even alternate accounts) that many of our fleet commanders have in the fleet. When looking at the roster of offline players and paying close attention to the at handles you might notice that a fair majority of the fleet consists of alternate toons. The reason for this is multi-fold including the challenge of building a new toon with a new more fun play style, farming purposes to help donate more to the fleet, or alternate accounts with access to different areas of the game (ie cell ships or freighters). Personally I have toons that do nothing but farm dilithium and doffs for the fleet that are level 40+ that have never even bothered to rescue the Azura yet…lol TLDR
So long answer shortened anyone in the fleet will be allowed to bring over alternate toons for any reason that they like.
* Q) Why is your Roster so small?
