A special congratulations to the 8th Wing Fleets and all of its members. Today we announce the promotions and recognition of our members for their service to community and friendship.


[1/20 4:03-4:16p]
alright, I am now going to begin the Ceremony, thank you all for your time.

We had our Winter Administration meeting a while ago
We have decided no new fleets will be created in our system
We also decided no foreign fleets will be invited to our system, no new fleets for us simply for the dilithium sink
No new invited fleets because in our experience outsiders bring drama, and I am very proud to say you all do an outstanding job at extinguishing that at the first sight that chat might be heading in that direction.

I also want to mention that we will be continuing to train for the Colony invasion simulations where we could get a lot of provisions for the simulations if we complete all 30 rounds keeping all shield generators alive all members of the map will be rewarded 2,100 of EACH provision type this amount tears up the mini game totals vs. time

We also discussed and think it's a great idea submitted by one of our members to specify on one PvE a week and get every participating member to understand how it is ran, and how to reach the objective I'll be starting that aspect this coming week, well in 2 days on Monday.

Yes build/character developement discussion may arise in armada chat, if it gets too specific, please team up and take it to team chat as all of you know, ship building is an extremely opinionated topic.

I would like to see a bit more activity on our website here 8thwingtactical.shivtr.com/.
This has forums where we could use it for build discussions, and using the windows "snipping tool" in game to take a picture of our builds to post in the media section
If you have questions concerning the website @Azselendor has all that information

We also use TeamSpeak for faster information transfer, optional of course.

Now down to the business you are all here for

I encourage anyone whom is after fleet credits to contribute to the armada. This is done through the fleetpage crtl+g, Armada tab. Helping fleets is a part of what complete fleets should be doing, it is not the job of a single member to contribute a load of dilithium into a fleet project, but if we all contribute small amounts. With our numbers of members we should knock out any project swiftly, as well as add to our fleet credits to purchase fleet gear.
We help everyone rank up within our fleet, if you are interested in fleet responsibilities please reply to this mail. We promote within the fleet due to game knowledge and being respectfull to others, as well as helpfull and active within chat. Our goal has always been to simply enjoy the game in whichever aspect that is for YOU, our members making sure everyone enjoys it to the fullest of their potential.
We have discussed a few topics in our six month review of our system, and the changes we will try to apply are as follows:
> We are going to focus more on the que teaching aspect. May even focus on a single que for a week, this way everyone by the end of the week should know that que inside out, how to reach all objectives successfully for the most rewards from each que.
> We will attempt to send more fleet mails about our system events, and up coming game events.
> We did talk about many more topics, although nothing else major is changing, no new fleets being created in our system, and no foreign fleets being invited to the system.
Saturday the 20th is our Promotion Ceremony, everyone is welcome to join in this festive activity. This event is posted in your fleet page events tab. We will be promoting members into high fleet ranks, as well as giving away some items. If there are any questions, suggestions or comments please reply to this mail.

Bridge Officers

All bridge officers can learn all skills for their career class as well as can be qualified for any and all specializations and all of those skills.

The question then becomes how to select our bridge officers. To assist in survive-ability let's discuss the fact that bridge officers also have Traits. Pointedly you would want your away team members to have nothing but ground traits, however for your Bridge Stations...

Space Traits? For Bridge Officers? YES. These are rare and NEEDED. You will find that the list is short but depending on your build, vital.

Take the Hierarchy Officer from “The Delta Quadrant (story arc) Episode: Alliances” He comes with two space traits – Efficient and Pirate, Both worth the effort to get him.

Efficient - Provides a bonus to efficiency stats, improving the effectiveness of many of your power management.

Leadership - 20% faster subsystem and hull repair (Humans)

Pirate - Improves all damage dealt (Nausicaan Male Engineer)

Subterfuge - Increases damage after leaving cloak. (Romulan)

Impatient - Increases power recharge speed by 5% (Lobi)

Temporal Applied: *Sci *Tac *Eng - +10% Power recharge speed for bridge officer abilities. (stacks 3 times from different active officers of same career) (Fleet Research Lab)

Infiltrator - Increases the duration of the damage buff after decloaking. (Reman)

Romulan Operative - Increases critical hit chance / severity (Fleet Embassy)

Salvage Specialist - When attacking targets that are below 25% Hull, 5% chance: Receive random R&D material. (Lobi)

This list while incomplete is meant to give you a broader picture of what you want. Please feel free to ask questions or do your own research into these matters.

Happy Holidays from the 8th Wing Admiralty.

8th Wing Fleets.

The current state of our system is up for open review by all members. Any and all aspects of our form of fleet system can be changed during this review process. We perform these reviews during the Winter and Summer Events as is our tradition.

While this might be a new process for you as a new member to our system, we invite everyone to participate as much or as little as they wish. Suggestions are welcome via in game email to a leader of your choice, or our site's feedback forums.

The sort of thing we are looking for is how would you tune our system to suit your needs. While every suggestion will be examined by our leadership, not all of them will be implemented. Please feel free to ask to remain anonymous, but I would suggest to send such in an email as the site will publicly record user name.

Exactly what is up for review? Everything. All rules of our system in the fleet charter, all structure of our government of the system. If there is a rule that needs Editing, Removal, or Inclusion, we will take it under advisement. Fleet Ranks, Fleet Names, Fleet Settings, and even Armada Settings are all possible subjects of this process.

Fleet Rank 5s and above are hereby challenged to attempt to gather opinions and or suggestions for review during the upcoming Review Meeting. This meeting will have a minimum of two stages. First we will meet Rank 5s and above to collect the suggestions and opinions. Second we will limit the Meeting to Rank 7s. If need be we will include Rank 6s in the second stage and add a third stage for only Rank 7s. This all depends on the level of participation we get during this process.

The Meeting Date is to be determined, however it's likely to be on January 6th or 13th.

Happy Holidays to all members from the Armada Admiralty:

Winter Wonderland, 8th Wing Armada notes

So Winter is here!!!

Notes on the main race. I'm speaking about the one that earns you Winter Prize Vouchers. These are used as the currency for the Winter Event Tier 6 Ship.

Start by speaking to the Breen next to Q. “The Fastest Game on Ice”
If there are a number of players waiting at the start point, please form a line, and use this method to avoid disqualifying yourselves or others. Our manual queue starts at the arch just past the bridge over the race way.

Use sprint to run as fast as you can, aim for the inside of each curve. If you go out of bounds on the outside of the curve you will be disqualified, but not if you go outside of bounds on the inside of the curve. Control sliding off the track by aiming back onto the track and pressing “w w” this will roll you back on and you can continue to race.

Now that we know how to win the race, we need to mention that you only want to do this for your main character. Slot the project in the Event Reputations to claim the ship, and fill it with 1000 of these Vouchers. In other words, it will take 25 days to grind out the needed photos for the first character, this is now an account wide unlock, go to the Event Reputation Store and Reclaim for all your characters.

OPEN the winter store in the Event Reputations menu for all your characters and GET Frosted Boots for all your characters. There are some other useful items available here.

Item Give-aways to be held Tomorrow, Sunday the 10th. Be on the lookout for that event.

Currently taking suggestions on the modification or inclusion for our fleet system. Up for review – All aspects and any suggestions will be taken into account. Use in game email to type up your suggestion and send it to any leader you wish. Or use the Feedback Forum Posts on our site.

We hope you are all having a wonderful game folks.
Armada Admiralty.
