He did this back in 2011 for us, and I keep getting asked for links to it, then having to find them, so here you go.

Pulled from BNI reddit :)

 

 

Here's Nancy Crows guide to becoming a newbie FC (starring Nancy Crow playing himself)

  1. Fly with the more experienced FCs to build up the terminology and strategies. Ask questions about anything you don't understand (not during a fight). Read a lot about game mechanics and different ships/roles/fleet comps!

  2. Lead small groups doing basic PvE, like ded sites, belt ratting, mission running, anomolies, etc. This will help you practice giving commands, broadcasting targets/aligns, using scouts, having to filter a somewhat constant stream of both useful and useless info (and identify them as such quickly).

  3. Lead small gang frigate roams. Same things to learn as step 2, but you'll also have to practice finding fights, anticipating enemy moves, judge their fleet against yours, deal with people dying around you, more important scouting, possibly probing. Frigates only help you deal with the inevitable heavy losses and the guilt that you were the one that commanded them to their death.

  4. Lead larger groups (still stay cheap, dessie down). Larger groups are going to be similar, but there will be much more information flowing in, and it will be much more difficult to size you fleet up against the enemy's. Try to focus on not getting everyone slaughtered (though don't be too afraid to take some risks).

Ideally if you are active and seem to be doing fairly well, you may be noticed and actually promoted to "Fleet Commander" (though this is just a title) somewhere between steps 3 and 4.

Other note: have thick skin and treat everything like a learning experience. You will be given TONs of advice (good and bad) and criticized often. You need to analyze that advice, and maybe run it by people you really trust to determine if its good or not. Be prepared to fuck up and whelp fleets, just use it as an opportunity to learn what you did wrong, or how you could have at least identified the warning signs ahead of time.
