I've been playing single-player for long while & I'm about as high up in terms of stats as anybody on Free to Play. Recently I began looking for Fleets to maybe ask to join. I hadn't hit anyone up yet but I got an invite out of the blue to join one. I liked the name & after a brief look at their description, I decided to accept the offer. But having never been in a Fleet I don't know what to expect. Sorry for the noob questions but...
They say you need 40,000 fleet credits just to get promoted enough to get a one item/day withdrawl limit, the next step up is 200,000 which is 4/day. Is this normal? Do I just need to earn the credits or do I pay someone? Also, they never have any events, at least they haven't had any in the time I've been a member (about 2 weeks or so) and thers nothing on their calendar. They have a T3 Satrbase & a T1 Embassy which I've been contributing to quite regularly. I average about 2-3,000 a day in dilithium, dozens of fleet marks. I've also given Duty Officers, those very expensive Embassy provisions....you name it. Not to mention, the very rare mk XI gear I give to the bank. Is that an acceptable enough amount? And then when I make a request for a simple console schematic, I get no answer. There doesn't really seem to be the sense of the community I keep reading about. And quite honestly, I feel a little like I'm being taken somewhat. And lastly, do I lose all my fleet credits if I leave.
If this is all normal I can accept that of course. It just seems all a bit too rigid to me.
And BTW I'm a VA50 w/ full crafting capability and am willing to contribute whatever I can to any mature Fleet looking to recruit
