WTM Upgrade Policy
What is the policy and what does this mean for me?
WTM Incursions welcomes new pilots to come try out incursions with us, and we have provided several affordable options for entry-level battleships that let you get into fleet without breaking the bank. However, over time we ask that you invest in making yourself and the fleet more effective, which includes getting set up in a ship that is well-suited for incursion running. Our list of Optimal ships includes the Vindicator, Nightmare, Leshak, Machariel, and Logi. If you aren’t flying an optimal hull yet, then we ask that you upgrade to an optimal hull with a proper fit (which can be found on our fitting website) within 30 in-fleet hours. Based on average fleet earnings, this should give you more than enough income to fit up a ship as well as helping towards covering your monthly Plex costs.
After upgrading into an optimal hull, we ask that you begin training into Tech 2 guns for your preferred ship type. You will have 4 months of time frame or 90 in-fleet hours. Based on average fleet earnings this should give you enough time to train the skills naturally or earn enough to purchase skill injectors.
If you are already flying an optimal fit, thank you! We recommend that you continue to upgrade your ship with better damage mods, tank mods, and implants. Feel free to ask questions in WTM Incursions on how to become better!
We want to run incursion fleets the best we can and in order to that requires investment from you! Many veterans have already invested in themselves and in fleet without this policy, however, some pilots have decided that sandbagging is okay. It’s not! For this reason upgrading is a requirement.
This all sounds great but I ___ (been busy) and haven't upgraded yet, can I still join fleet?
Yes! You can still x-up with any ship that meets our fitting requirements. However, out of fairness the FC may skip over you if there is limited space in fleet and others waiting in line who are following the policy. We understand that life can take some crazy and unexpected turns so please speak to a member of Command Core if you feel that you have exceptional circumstances.
Thanks for improving yourself, improving fleet, and for flying with us!
See you in fleet!
