I have been running with a good group of guy and gals...we might be interested. Recently had to switch server because of the china men. I would be bringing about 15 people with me mostly US evening and weekends. Thoughts?

1. Need... When I first took the reigns it was a great night with a lot of good pew pew. The current FC had to log and I knew if someone did not step up the fleet who disband. So I took the step.


2. I was nervous and afraid. I was not afraid of losing ships I was more worried about sounding like or acting like a moron. I had been in many fleets and had learned to follow the FC. Know it was my turn to lead and I found myself not sure on what steps to take. Where to go, what to warp to etc...


3. I thought a FC had to be an expert pvp pilot.


4. Just go for it. You don’t have to be an expert pvp pilot. You have to be an organizer and communicator. Communication between the other FC and your fleet. Set expectations that are realistic and clear. You going to lose some and you’re going to win some, it's RvB. I found putting together some sort of fleet "idea" doctrine helps tremendously. If you want to learn to FC get a fleet going and have experienced FC watch you and give feedback. I had an FC deal a couple of months ago where Shen was in my fleet. His feedback was tremendously valuable. Keep your people together. The best advice I received from Shen was to treat your fleet like really expensive drones. If you don’t tell them what to do they are going to wonder off and find something to do.  I agree with Jasper on getting the high DPS low tank guys off the field. Also, know your opponents. There are some pilots in the opposite fleet who I know will deliver high DPS no matter what, but I also know those folks are going to be more difficult to kill. I want them off the field.  Take the opportunities that present themselves. I also know there a certain people who run some tanky crap, that get put to the end of the list where they normally would be at the front.


Just remember it's a game. People are in RvB in order to engage in on-going PVP. When I undock a ship I don’t plan on putting it back. If I do get to put it back its just icing on the cake. 


Be confident and take command of the fleet. I will follow a good communicator, confident leader before I will follow a quiet, mild, timid FC.


Good lord support your FC...don't be a douche. Remind him you there, engaged and ready to follow into glorious space dust.




One last thought, I have become a much better solo pilot after learning and practicing FCing. Allot of the decisions are the similar. When to engage, when to run, how to apply damage....ok enough rambling.


Hope this helps....provided by an average FC J
