    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 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. Along with this we ask you to purchase and fit an X-Type MWD and Faction Damage mods for your guns. Based on average fleet earnings this should give you enough time to train the skills naturally or earn enough to purchase skill injectors. For your end-goal, at 125 hours in fleet, you are expected to be in the Optimal doctrine fit. So start planning your upgrades now! 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! Why: 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!

    I think it's much simpler this time, and less is being discussed? Exactly what Toh Kay said. I believe we have Beryl on board with implementing 'something' (likely something like TyCoe's tracker) into the waitlist. He was just waiting for a commitment to method (calendar time / x-ups / fleet hours) and target of tracking. I think (I could be missing something) that the current discussion topic is primarily "what the limit should be". It sounded like fleet hours was the most favored, so we just needed to pick a number. I saw 20 fleet hours first, countered with 40, but it sounds like 30 fleet hours might be a comfortable middle ground. So, for a stake in the ground: 30 fleet hours, tracked automatically by the waitlist via the mechanism used by TyCoe's tool? ... I was going to say just use reactions for 'votes' but it seems we can't actually negatively react on this forum (probably for the best overall)... so lets say... React to this post with "Like" ( <3 ) for "agree with those parameters", or "Upvote" (up arrow) for "bump to more discussion" ?

    Hello all; Good Luck and Fortune to'ya. I am hoping Vindi Vets and DPS Vets add some of their wisdom on top of this, and please take the liberty to correct anything as they see prudent. I fell in love with WTM culture of newbro friendly, ISK faucets of fun: I started this thread to remark on some of the things i picked up and allow info to be spread to newbro's (including me'self) As DPS, whether your in an Optimal Ship, or a Starter: remember the fleet counts on us: being efficient in removing dangerous DPS tags from the field, as We are the Sword of the fleet. Our DPS targets are chosen with Wisdom behind it. The faster we Pop the Sansha, the faster our fleet will be in a safer state. I hope to stay on topic by sticking to Maneuvering, Web calls, and general info ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Maneuvering ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The VVV Anchor should always be on your watchlist, easy right? But what happens when FC calls tag 1+2 outini/auga/deltole and you have no anchor in the pocket? BURN BABY BURN! 'Keep At Range' on the primary/Tag1 (Turn on your MWD) You do not need to be attached by the hip especially at the beggining of a room (*exeption TCRC) remember almost all FC's want Focus fire 1-X so you will generally be in the same place as the anchor anyhow. As a Blaster ship, you must get close to the enemy Sansha to hit them effectively. So in every beggining of each room, You should be anchoring(K.A.R) on your DPS Tags. This insures optimal range, and maximum potential damage application. **Pay attention to how many DPS tags are left, as you Should be Keeping at Range on your VVV-Anchor when DPS tags are low, or when FC calls for DPS burn to anchor spots* This applies in 1st rooms where the sancha are already on field, tags are up, and DPS is warping in: What I do 1st (example TPPH turn left go fast) i am spam 'E+Click' on tag 1 and as soon as i see warp meter ~40% i hit my MWD to start the burn. Then start locking your tags, i find im already hitting max speed just as the rest of the tags come in -Just remember the closing rate is fast! don't Bump nor overshoot your target (~20k out kill your MWD) and keep spamming that keep at range so you do not 'bump the targets' If your not still burnin' you can actually start to "keep at range"(E+click) to Tag 2, IF T2 is within 10k and IF Tag one(T1) is webbed.. this will help you apply more dps to T1 as you slowboat to T2(tag two) Get familliar with the Keep at range mechanic, as you get more experienced you'll notice how to apply more efficient DPS, and help the fleet and you make more ISK/hr as well as BE safer. - Eve University has a great thread on Transversals, angular velocity, and general gun dynamics, as a blaster you could benefit greatly from checking it out <https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Turret_mechanics> --------- Sliding: aka "Using Momentum"------- So: In reference to landing in a pocket (aka Taking a Gate with FC's authorization) avoiding painful Mathimatical Calculations, what if i told you, that there is a way to use the warp speed you had to burn towards Sansha after you take an accelleration gate? Im not kiting you, it is possible. As you play, start to pay attention to your velocity Bar, especially while beginning to warping/ landing from warping. After awhile, you'll notice that the "Warp Bar" (The velocity bar that has WARPING shown across) enters warp at a certain point, (75%-90%) and exits warp, at about (40%) (Thats why we have you aligning full speed to quicken the warp) and although thats usuful, Im focusing on Landing from warp. * Id suggest to you to pay attention to when your ship Exits 'WARPING' (Aproximately 40% ) you'll notice it switches from saying "Warping" to the regular display (100m/s for example) ** This is the exact server tick/time that your ship is free to Move/aproach/keep at range, activate modules, lock targets, recieve links etc. if you desire it. And i would say you do! Why?? Because it allows you to carry that momentum! It is a lot easier for your ship to Burn to Max velocity from 100m/s vrs from a dead standstill. You "slide" from out of warp. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Webs------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Precall webs always. Every Situation 2 webs are needed when Sansha start their burn. Remember, you can limp away with 1 kneecap, if you lose 2 kneecaps? "You're goin' NoWheahr'!" In TPPH's, NRF's - when you Land&Slide, call Your Webs! You have all that time to burn towards them, so VVV will probably web tag_1, there are all the others out there, So call them! this will give plenty of time for your fellow pilots to grab the rest. So break the sansha's kneecaps and start shooting em in the face, the rest of the DPS train will come along following 1-> X, and they shall not have to travel far because you webbed that sansha down. [<3 Imelda <3] Webs help the whole fleet, especially DPS squad; in the pre-spawned pockets, down to when your VVV brings you to the next spawn, you want as many DPS targets webbed down as possible. - don't call webs after you web them imho -i would suggest precalling webs, it allows your fellow DPS to not waste time switching web targets wasting precious cooldown seconds. Be aware and know what will be in web range, and what will not. If your gonna lose a web on something, call it. WTM culture will not mind if you were mistaken, if you call "6 got away" it may allow another dps to try and catch it. Foshkey wrote an excellent article that includes pictures) regarding BS that need webs that are doing 100m/s or more. Dont forget if BS are webbed, go for them cruisers (Rommi's usually) as well, and help the HHH out. Remember when the FC calls for 'DPS burn your anchor spots' turn your MWD on and keep at range on your anchor (Be aware not to bump any objects (Tower, Rocks, etc), the fleet and your VVV needs Your blasters and webs ready and in range for the next wave.* again Spread those webs! Precall, and if there are no tags yet, STILL WEB. You can coordinate what you have webbed when the tag numbers appear. If you have a tag that is just outside web range, remember you can -Overheat your web- to reach out and stop them (To Sansha: "whear you Goin'?!!") And if your K.A.R on that one trying to get away, you should be within standard web range within 1-2 overheat cycles (so you dont damage your Mid slots too much) Remember to be shootin' some'thin ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Tips------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Unlock Tag J if FC/LM calls one on the field, make sure you are not shooting it. Vylaids DONT NEED WEBS (Fiona helped me know that) as the Vylaid has no Propulsion module. Put that web to good use on some'thin else If you are HHH: and Vylaide is your Primary: 1 web on Vylaid will help Heavy Drones apply damage bettah While your webbing, remember to keep focus fire on your DPS Tags 1-X Don't chase after Trigger Tags (tag 9's OR tag Z's (TPPH last room))when the rest of the dps targets are killed. You should be K.A.R on your anchor when there are 2-3dps tags left. Remember Shoot in order. In a TPPH Final Room, Tag 9's Or Z's Ostingales are the Trigger for the next wave. It is important that tags before the trigger are killed first. * If the final Osti's are killed before the rest, there is a good chance You and your Fellow DPS members will not be waiting in ambush for the Next Wave spawn. ---Split your Guns 4/4 and stagger them, you will not regret it. You will apply more DPS, get armor shots without trying, and not waste volleys when Sansha's Pop. You can do this by holding shift, and dragging and dropping your gun group modules to the next module slot. It will start 7/1 and the next it will be 6/2. Get it to 4/4 and you will notice a difference. And dont worrie! You can always regroup them on tower bashes if you like seeing full damage ;] Precall Your Webs! Remember to shut your MWD off when you are done manuevering. Tactical Overlay Helps me out in maneuvering around the field the Default hotkey is (Ctrl-D) You can also find a Press-button Bottom left of your Capacitor GUI. -- then use HoldQ+LClick, (1st Lclick is direction, second LeftClick is elevation.) Keep and mind: listen to your FC! If the FC calls full fleet Arnons + Outini, or DPS Auga Outini Deltole Start locking them! When FC calls primaries : lock the primaries and then lock the rest of your DPS tags when the numbers arive. Remember to keep focusing fire. Just be aware if you accidentally lock a sniper target to Unlock them. You want to help your DPS squad crush your targets. Hotkey for Unlocking a target (CTL+SHIFT : CLICK) No worries about burning to final tag when there is another spawn to come, as it is much more important to be in position for the next wave/Room. (Except the end of the NRF) Your 2 types of ammo will almost always be Long Range (NULL/Faction Tungston, or Short range(VOID/Faction Antimatter. Try to pay attention to how far your targets will be, and Load the Appropriate ammo for the Task at hand. Remember it takes 5 seconds to reload *Niki's simple ammo change rule: " i always tell ppl with blasters: -if its more than 15 km away, change to long range -if its less than 10 km away, change to short range (hopefully this will be the case most of the times) -if its between 10 and 15 km just keep shooting with whatever you have loaded currently. This is good to follow until you get so experienced that you can figure out the exceptions yourself." [<3Niki<3] \m/ Try grouping your guns in a 4/4 setup, and stagger them on your DPS tags (in order), this will allow maximum amount of DPS/less cool down Active Brawl. Imho it is Much more fun and engaging than simply latching onto your VVV and not letting go. Remember: You must listen to your FC, as some things change, and WTM commanders are trained to see things you dont, coukd it safety situation, or a more efficient way than S.O.P (All written things are subject to change of the current Voice FC ) I have a blast flying with WTM (pun intended) these are just tips i gathered from learning, they'are not manditory (exception: for DPS burn to your anchor spots, be with your VVV) But they certainly go a long way to helping fleet, as well as yourself to have fun, safe fleets. I apologize in advance for any typos, as this was done from mobile device. Good luck n Fortune, I shall see you in Fleet! --VVR P.S Whether you are a Hyperion, rohk, or vindi -* if you have blasters*- and have any questions or would like to know more feel free to message me me in game mail, or give me a poke on TS "Victor Victor Rothwulf" - Me' door is open if im around. And I will find the time. \m/ "Make them sansha's go No-whear!" \m/

    For a few weeks in a row optimal hours have been suspended. This means more pilots in non-optimal hulls and fits joining the WTM fleets, but it also means the fleet is less able to take contests in the heavily-contested EUTZ, resulting in more waiting, bouncing and losing contests. Recently a few people discussed the problem, different interests that need to be balanced and possible solutions that could improve the current situation. This post was written together with Thomas Neoo and Xoceac. The problem During EUTZ there are four groups running HQ sites. WTM, TDF, NGA and recently a Korean group has started running HQ sites. These groups generally play nice with each other, but TDF can and will contest other groups to raise their own ISK/hr, lowering the efficiency at which the other groups can run sites. Running the WTM incursion fleet on a first com, first serve basis during these highly contested hours (from DT through early EUTZ) results in a serious loss of income for the entire fleet. The interests There are two conflicting sets of interests. On one hand everybody likes more ISK. On the other hand WTM wants to be a community open to newer members without requiring a multi-billion ISK investment up front. For each suggested solution we will try to balance these two sets of interests. Possible solutions Limiting non-optimal hulls in fleet Set a hard cap on the number of non-optimal hulls that are allowed in fleet until there are no more optimal hulls on the waitlist. This would make WTM fleets harder to contest, but the tradeoff would be making it harder to join WTM fleets for new pilots. A less harsh version of this would be only accepting optimal and preferred starter ships. This would remove some of the more... interesting hulls from fleet. Expansion and stricter enforcement of the upgrade policy Currently the upgrade policy requires pilots to upgrade to an optimal hull after 30 hours in fleet and to T2 guns after another 90 hours or 4 months, whichever comes first. Using the low estimate of 100m/hr you're looking at 3b for 30 fleet hours. That is enough ISK to (currently) buy PLEX for one month + upgrade to one of the non-Leshak optimal hulls. The suggestion here is requiring damage mods to be upgraded after 20 hours in fleet after getting an optimal hull. Assuming four damage mods that would be approximately 400 million ISK of the 2 billion people should've made in that timeframe. If possible it'd be great to expand upon the waitlist tool showing pilots they might have to wait for a long time to get in fleet because they are lagging behind on the upgrading policy. More guidance for new pilots Make a clear and easy guide on how to upgrade your ship, starting from a starter ship and covering all improvements until the pilot is in an optimal hull and fit. Preferably with an explanation for each upgrade. This gives pilots a clear path to contributing more to the fleet. This can also be combined with other suggestions. Also, Xoceac already started implementing this it seems! Newbro-focused assault fleets Another idea floated around in the Discord conversation was running assault fleets focused on non-optimal pilots. Newer pilots could get some incursions practice running assault sites, making ISK without having to deal with the higher stress and contesting resulting from the high competition for HQ sites. Obviously these fleets could only be run during very active hours (like EUTZ during weekends), but it would be a solution that would be beneficial to all (except if there aren't enough FC's to run assaults that is). One of the FC's seems to have already stepped up to organize this Bringing back optimal hours This solution speaks for itself. Bring back the optimal hours during the most highly-contested time (11-16 approximately). Perhaps combined with having a minimum number of x newer pilots in fleet. Waitlist notifications for non-optimal fits Another way of informing people they can and should upgrade could be through the waitlist, showing notifications for pilots to remind them to upgrade their ships. Summary There are a bunch of ways to improve WTM fleets without hurting the goal of being new-player friendly. We were wondering what other people thought. Let us know

    We are changing our standard initial meatshield for TCRC entry to be our Booster ship. AAA will enter with the rest of the fleet but on landing will STILL shoot the tower to consolidate aggro. This should reduce losses dramatically in TCRC's. Follow FC instructions while running!

    WTM has expanded it's Upgrade Policy. At 90 hours in fleet all battleships are expected to, along with being in an optimal hull, have T2 Guns, X-type Deadspace Microwarpdrive (either gist or core), 4 Faction Damage mods (not including DDAs/TEs). Also now at 125 hours in fleet, we require all battleship pilots to be in the Optimal doctrine fits. This is to ensure efficiency and fairness in this ever competitive HQ Incursion climate. There will be a one week grace period before this goes into effect. (1/24/2021) If you are already over the time limit please take this time to upgrade your fit. If you have questions on how to fit your ship, feel free to reach out to a commander in WTM Local chat. Or mail a Council member found in the WTM Local MOTD.

    Warp to Me has made the decision to no longer allow characters under 4 weeks old to join fleet. These new players should spend time training up skills and learning the game before jumping straight into high level content like Incursions. Older players making new alts for incursions may be an exception if they can prove their in-game experience with another of their characters and fly an optimal hull. Any questions can be directed to Council found in the Warp To Me Incursions ingame MOTD.

    DPS and Sniper waitlists have been super long as of late and Logi waitlist is very often empty or very short. We need Logi to run fleet and have had problems running some sites because we don't have enough. Logi is a relatively easy but important role and you don't have to wait on those long DPS and Sniper waitlists. Please train into Basis and Scimis and aim for good logi skills including Logistics cruiser 5 optimally. It's a long train but definitely worth it. Check our fitting site for fits. Thank you

    I am sorry, but waiting for a me to be a commander (hoping I become one), making a proposal and waiting weeks for these guides to be updated, hurts me physically and mentally. I am unsure at this point as the guides are being worked on, but I am in awe that some are not updated yet. Clearly there are a lot of mistakes that need to ironed out, pictures are missing, typos and incursions in general having progressed, that these guides need serious updating. Below I have linked all of my own guides, as I do believe newer guides that have been made are fairly up to date. The reason I am posting this here is so that anyone can have some imput, this post eventually be moved or deleted and remade somewhere else. In general Typos removed, edited or rebuild proper sentences Shorten the guides, remove useless crap All pictures have a permanent home now and hopefully won't be removed anymore NEW GUIDE: Drugs guide This isn't an exact write up for every guide, just a general edit Updates: 15-5-2020 Added Malcolms suggestions Typos New Drop Those Drones guide headline picture Machs are the preferred MTACs. Added Flametounges changes too 14-5-2020 Added 2 implants to the implant guide Added pictures to the Drop those drones guide Wrote more about drones you should use Anchoring Guide Room 1 and 2 Everyone should be burning towards the outgate to go into the next room. For the final room, check the picture below. Room 1 VVV (and DPS): Burn towards the targets and web everything down. Priority: Auga, Outuni, Ostingles. AAA (and Snipers): Burn towards the outgate, shooting the Vylade. Room 2 VVV (and DPS): Burn towards the targets and web everything down. Priority: Auga, Deltole, Ostingale, Romi. AAA (and Snipers): Sit still, kill the Mara and then burn. In the progress of updating the NRF picture. It's too zoomed out and all 3 DPS anchor spots can have a better overview of their respective anchor positions. TPPH and TCRC pictures are fine as they are. The new NRF picture, hopefully it's ok. Leshaks should ofcourse be included into the anchoring guide. Room 3 TPPH: (This should include Leshaks) Burn towards the tower, spool nearby Ostingles. Then, follow the VVV anohor. (There is a position below the VVV, but you will most likely get Arnon aggro, get jammed and lose DPS) NRF Burn behind the AAA anchor, about 90 to 95km off the beacon. Burn left 50/55km, above the VVV anchor. After that you can burn around the 4th wave into the sniper targets. Incursion Guide Picture missing The blue color is horrible and hard to read, this should be changed to something more readable. I think adding the "A site spawns 7 minutes after the beacon despawns" in there somewhere would be nice. Outuni gets taken out first, but sometimes it's the Auga and Arnor first, this should be edited. Niarja isn't as bad as I wrote it to be, can be toned down. Vylade doesn't boost? Change it. Deltole doesn't web. Advanced Incursion Tips Pictures Missing First Picture, Staggering Second Picture, Overheating Are you THE VVV? EWAR Call out your webs in fleet chat or on voice Not really EWAR, but call out spools as well Link the skill Frequency Modulation and Sensor Compensation skills somewhere for more information. Overheating Explain how to overheat, shift click a module or SHIFT + HOTKEY (Example, SHIFT + F1) Capacitor Guide Picture missing Yeah I know, it's a big picture, but it perfectly shows how your capacitor is recharging and why we use the 30% to broadcast for cap. Rest looks good I guess, I would make some minor changes to the color and overall look of the guide. Influence guide Pictures Missing Unsure how the current influence fits are now. With maybe changes to WTM and the recent patch there might have been changes to add more tank. Remove the "Except Apocalypse Navy Issue - does not have an available midslot." Rest looks ok I guess. Drop those drones (Drone Guide) Pictures Missing HEADLINE Light Drones Acolyte II If you can't field Acolytes II, go for Imperial Navy Acolytes Hammerhead II If you can't field Hammerhead II, go for Federation Navy Hammerheads Ogre II If you can't field Ogre IIs, go for Federation Navy Ogres Unable to find the images I used to use and only able to find really big drone pictures. Remove them? DO NOT USE INTEGRATED DRONES If you have money and want to risk it, you can buy "Augmented" drones Drone Settings picture Obviously there is something wrong with the code on the recommendations for the drones. Most drone suggestions are in the fitting list anyway. I suggest removing all text and just giving the suggestions for the drones Battleships: 5 x Heavies Ogres recommended Augmented are best, but expensive. Logistics: 5 x Lights Acolytes recommended Scimitars can bring hull bots Again, don't buy Integrated, they are not allowed. Implant Guide Guide looks good, remove all prices, Bling already shows high cost. One small edit, add a capacitor slot 6 for the logistics Inherent Implants 'Squire' Capacitor Systems Operation EO-606 Cap Recharge Time Reduction -6 % 2nd option: Eifyr and Co. 'Rogue' Navigation NN-606 Velocity Modifier 6 % Drone Bunny (DDD) Remove all recommended ships for the DDD Vindicator is the optimal ship 4/4 stack your guns, put 4 guns and a web on seperate targets. Full fleet shoot XXX is debatable and should be revised. Only when contested, you should just follow the tags below. What should I shoot? NSTER For example, the first room of the TPPH, you don't shoot the Outuni. Removed the Outuni and make it NSTER./ TPPH 1st room Schmaeels, Tamas then Renyns TPPH 2nd room Is fine TPPH 3rd room3 Wave 1 1 Eystur Then Tamas Then the rest of the Eysturs REMOVE ROMIS Wave 2 is fine Wave 3 Include Vylade Leftover frigates Vylade Romis NRF Wave 1 is correct Wave 2 is correct Wave 3 First Maras (Use your resebo) Then Frigates Then Romis Wave 4 1 Outuni > go for Frigates, Vylade then Romis 2/3 Outinies > Go for last tagged, then Eysturs, Vylade, then Romis. Skill Guide WORK IN PROGRESS Remove the Rokh and the Maelstrom Skills for the Hyperion Minimum Vindicator Optimal Vindicator MTAC Guides Machariels preferred, Nightmares are secondary MTACs if no Mach is around. Add a clear picture of the MTAC factory and Shield Transfer Control Tower. Tone down the wall of text, make the guide simpler and add general tips Requirement: Have a Tractor Beam fitted Whenever you take a TCRC gate, FC will say full fleet take gate, you wait about 5 seconds, so you won't get webbed. MTAC should burn immediatly to the MTAC factory. Within 20km of the MTAC factory, turn off the MWD, drop a can with 1 ammo and tractor it. (DO NOT SHOOT YOUR OWN CAN) Put the MTAC from the MTAC factory into your can. (The MTAC is too big for your ship, therefor you have a can) Move the MTAC from the MTAC Factory to the Shield Transfer Control Tower. Then go back to the MTAC factory, wait for another MTAC and keep doing it until the tower is dead. After the tower dies, you are allowed to warp off. (This is because you can get stuck on the collidable structures) General tips Focus on the first MTAC first, then the rest, like shooting the tower (if at all) and putting your drones on the tower. Do not shoot the tower while burning towards the MTAC factory, you might get aggro. Pulse your MWD towards the Shield Transfer Control Tower for the first MTAC, this means activating it and immediatly de-activating it. Right after you pulse it, set your speed to 200 to 300, so you get a little bit of speed, no super boost. Pull your drones a bit earlier, so you are able to warp off earlier as well. 50% hull should be good enough. Contest tips If you are taking the gate later, look out for contests. Tell the FC and immediatly take the gate. Pre heat your MWD and burn towards the MTAC factory immediatly. It's imperative you get the first MTAC and ask the FC when to drop it. It comes to FC strategies on contests when to drop the MTAC. The first MTAC is the most important one, but if you don't get it, it's fine. Don't stress. If you didn't get the first one, try to get the second one and ask the FC when to drop. These should be all the updates to the guides. Thank you for reading. Thanks for @Mu Linfei for helping me with some of the edits.

    Hey guys. I had a random convo on Slack the other day asking me to give out my POV about the DDD role. As per usual it triggered me (in a good way this time) and i got drawn into the convo more and more, turning it into one of those hour-long teaching moments of mine. It is a really raw copy-pasted format and kind of "niki-blunt" . But maybe it turned out to be something sharing worthy. If its useful for you then im glad. But im not really looking for anything else with this topic. I just wanted to share.

Anonymous [6:23 AM] (base strength is ~63% each) gallente 5 niki [6:23 AM] 15+ kms and 60+ % webs are pretty awesome to ddd with. and minmatar bship level? Anonymous [6:23 AM] only 3 =/ niki [6:23 AM] yeah so 2 things first and foremost get faction (cal navy is the most common to use) antimatter its better than nul whenever the frigs are closer than 20 km and its always better than void if its frig shooting 2nd thing get minmatar bship to 4 at least 5 would be better ofc also needless to say gunnery support skills and blaster spec is important too Anonymous [6:26 AM] all support at 5, blaster spec 4 niki [6:26 AM] thats pretty good... obviously all relevant skills on 5 would be best with the suggested implants included as well for vindis. that is the high-end. Anonymous [6:26 AM] (just bumped min BS to 4) niki [6:28 AM] gameplay wise i split my guns 4-4. if you kill one maybe you can spare 4 guns for the next which is a huge deal. webbing 2 different frigs shoot 1 until it dies shoot the other one but meanwhile start webbing a 3rd cuz you need the webs to actually apply. essentially you always need 1 more frig to be already webbed so you can instablap it or close to doing so. dont forget to always fill your locks thats actually one of the biggest mistakes a battleship can do. specially true for DDD. you can tell that you are doing a good job if you always feel like you are racing with yourself. guns vs webs. a close race. Anonymous [6:29 AM] ok. I've tried doing that in the past, but I've worried about wasting the drone effort, with them continually chasing new targets. but then, the drones are just bonus anyway... niki [6:29 AM] forget the drones. they dont exist. Anonymous [6:29 AM] ok niki [6:29 AM] just trust in yourself. you can do it without drones. and if you train yourself then after a while it doesnt matter if you dont have any drones. in some fleets you actually will lack light drones anyway. relying on them is a mistake imo. they are just a little extra/bonus. Anonymous [6:30 AM] tonight, I did have my guns split, but I wasn't leapfrogging targets. I was staggering webs and guns though, so I'd have a new half more often niki [6:30 AM] try to not burn too much around . just some cuz it ruins your tracking. Anonymous [6:30 AM] right I did notice that niki [6:31 AM] if the frigs are not on the way where you are needed to go and more than 20 kms away then just stop, load null and hope for best. if you are not moving your tracking is much better. sometimes ppl will pull the frigs away. if its temporary then dont even switch to null cuz in 20 seconds they are going to burn back anyway. if you feel like its gonna be more than 20-30 sec then switch to null. if the frigs are actually on your way then try to burn just 1 cycle and then slowboat and stop when they are in webrange the drones are actually helpful when you cant reach out with webs and you are shooting with null cuz then it takes ~10+ sec to kill 1 frig you can try to overheat web if you feel like you are behind on the schedule and you need just a few extra kms to reach out. webs dont burn out easily and just a few paste is enough to rep them while in warp Anonymous [6:34 AM] ok niki [6:34 AM] and they stop overheating after the frig dies anyway TPPH all first waves i'd burn 1 cycle to exitgates or anchorspot . then slow down and if you are in webrange stop NRF is easiest site as DDD just gotta make sure you have a good tempo in first 2 waves TCRC is an interesting site you can try go greedy kill schmaels before you reach the tower but its actually hard to complete . and also sometimes you need to switch to niarjas anyway or just try to kill niarjas only, burn into position and then try to schmael at the tower. somewhere in between is still fairly easy Anonymous [6:38 AM] yea, I was doing something in between tonight on the TCRC niki [6:38 AM] in tpph i always try to kill schmaels first cuz its easiest to web the first few frigs before aggro switch, and schmaels are hardest to kill as far as frigs go also forget about acronyms if you cant reach some frig with webs, always target the one that you actually can. webs are ensuring you gonna kill that frig really really fast if its not webbed its gonna die significantly slower. so range is more important than some "shooting order". except ofc if FC wants to bounce from site then scrams are priority. if i can choose freely cuz a lot of frigs are in range and we are not bouncing i prio webbers whenever i can (1st schmael 2nd renyn) cuz it helps the fleet the most. but obviously niarja must die first, no matter what. Anonymous [6:40 AM] right niki [6:40 AM] but yeah antimatter is a great help. nowadays i do 8k null 10k anti the rest void in vindi shoot antimatter most times, null if you need to constantly kill frigs more than 20 kms away . void is okay in tpph last wave and nrf 3rd 4th wave cuz you shoot only very few frigs in those. you have tons of time and you will probably be on top of them and you can web them anyway. and in those waves you will shoot cruiser or bship too Anonymous [6:43 AM] ok niki [6:43 AM] in tcrc i usually switch to void after all the schmaels are dead and im just chilling shooting tower and looking for respawner niarja niarja is a really easy frig to kill. Anonymous [6:44 AM] yea, the niarja blap easy niki [6:45 AM] tough frigs order : schmael >>> eystur > renyn >>> tama >>> niarja hardest to easiest to kill. (not a shooting order ofc, lol) Anonymous [6:46 AM] ok thanks for all this. I'll keep at it. hopefully I have more opportunities to take DDD =P niki [6:49 AM] no problem its fun. i actually enjoy ddd in tpph. otherwise its a pretty boring site. but i still really enjoy doing even that one if i can snatch ddd Anonymous [6:50 AM] yea. it was fun to race the rest of the fleet niki [6:56 AM] oh and always ask for 2xtracking . if they offer a 3rd ask for 1 range. but 1 tr 1 opti is not as good as 2xtr no matter who says what. Anonymous [4:17 PM] ok. one other question is if there's ever anything other than frigates that the DDD shoots before frigates? Like does the DDD follow full fleet calls for the Arnon/Outuni in TPPH 3rd-3rd, the Mara/Vylade in NRF 3rd and Outuni in 4th, and the Outuni in TCRC? I'm pretty sure the HHH does follow those calls (right?) but what about DDD? niki [5:07 PM] for DDD tpph 3rd 3rd shoot 2nd outuni then frigs . nrf 3rd mara(s) then frigs , nrf 4th if there are 3 outunis. then the 3rd outuni . TCRC niarjas are more important to shoot than the 2 outuni. if niarjas are down you can shoot 2nd outuni if you want but fleet should be pretty close to kill them. HHH : TPPH 3rd 3rd you should shoot second outuni then vylade then leftovers. NRF 3rd you should shoot mara(s) then vylade. NRF 4th vylade , except if there are 3 outunis. then the 3rd outuni first. TCRC you should not have any drones assigned, so you are just a vindi, not HHH. shoot in order. Anonymous [5:10 PM] ok, cool UPDATE: After Surgical Strike Patch Void is more powerful. If you are confident with your tracking (better be close to 20 at least) you can try to use Void more often to blap them frigates. At the moment (2020 May) I am usually bringing 8k Null, 5k Anti and the rest is Void to fill up cargohold to max. But you know... im pretty confident :smirkcat:

    As outlined in this CCP devblog, with the upcoming structure changes on May 26 unfueled structures will lose their defensive times and will not have asset safety if destroyed. As a result, we will be removing most of our dormant structures in anticipation of the patch. Please take this time to remove all assets from Warp To Structures structures before May 24th. Any ships, modules, etc left in structures at that time will be placed in asset safety and require a fee and wait time to recover. Any pods left in structures at that time will unfortunately be automatically destroyed. When the system warrants it, we will endeavor to online a Warp To Structures structure in the current focus. When online and listed in the WTM Incursions' MOTD, this can be treated as a normal player station with all the same associated risks. After the focus is finished, you will have 72 hours from the time the new focus spawns to remove your assets from the structure before it is taken down. As mentioned above, once deanchored after the 72h grace period, the structure will place ships, modules, etc in asset safety and destroy any remaining pods. We are happy to provide our citadel service free of charge, however we cannot take responsibility for any assets that are forgotten or lost. Warp to Structures is owned and operated with the full endorsement of WTM Incursions. Please feel free to contact Officers or Leadership with any concerns.

    Site doesnt matter (NRF or TPPH is the perfect time to read the guide and understand it anyway), it also doesnt matter if you think we already have enough ppl for the role or not. What matters is this: FC tells you to read a simple guide and perform a simple role, and you dont even want to bother trying then there is no room for you in fleet. There are plenty who wants to actually try instead of you, just not enough room for them. Truth is, i asked for a 2nd MTAC for quite a while (even before the contest) and specifically asked machs to do it. No one did. After about 15-20 minutes of continuously asking without names. I decided to start to sort out the situation 1 by 1 , looking at machs. Told you to read the guide and do the MTAC if we get to a TCRC. Not even trying to do this is just not an option in my fleets. Its actually really infuriating, when people are not even bothering to actually play the game and the role they are supposed to in a group activity which requires group effort Once again this was nothing personally against you, I did this multiple times in the past and will do it in the future, calling out pilots and asking them to X-up in fleetchat to make sure they are actually listening. It happened before you, it happened after you. You not remembering/hearing/not being there for it doesnt mean it did not happen. If you are not able to participate on the level that is expected because of real life or something else going on it is absolutely fine. Just dont expect to get paid like everyone else who are actually trying.

    Intro Once again, I seem to have unusual ideas of what constitutes "fun." In this case, it's the notion of "optimizing fleet performance." The phrase keeps coming up... "too many Hyperions." But this is EVE, and the way to win fights in EVE is to bring more people. Too many Hyperions is a strength, and I'd like to see if we can use that strength. Of course, at the end of a site what we want is forty on grid, but up until the last few seconds? The more firepower, the merrier. My initial idea about how to do this is to divide the fleet into a command group, and then multiple wings of battleships + logi. Everybody piles into a site, we kill stuff as normal, and then about twenty seconds before the end all of the "extra" wings warp off, leaving forty to get maximum payout. We keep payouts fair by staggering which wings leave early between sites; if Able and Baker go this time, Charlie and Delta go next time, or whatever. This should have several advantages over our current fleet structure; it'll be safer because we'll have a billion logi on grid right up until the end, there won't be any huge waits to get into fleet, and contesting us becomes very interesting. I'm going to try and run this on Tuesday January 5, immediately post-downtime. Fleet Organization ON GRID wing, voice FC commanding (this is the command group) -Logi squad, with 3-4 Basi and one 3-link Scimi. Scimi links to DDD. I -DPS squad, with VVV, DDD, HHH -Sniper squad with AAA ABLE, BAKER, CHARLIE, etc. wings, with a battleship in wing command. -Logi squad, two logi. Two Basi, two Scimi, or one Scimi + one Loki. Scimi should link to wing members. -DPS squad with 6-7 battleships OFF GRID wing -Booster squad with various boosters -one or several scout squads With a ten-man command group and three battleship wings, we get 9-10 logi and forty people getting payout; it's our current fleet, with a funny-looking structure. With fifty people, we have four battleship wings, one warping out at the end of sites. With sixty... you see how it goes, but also, can I get a second booster and y'all early leavers go claim the next site? MAYBE. We'll probably try it. So what do I DO in this fleet? Most of the time, same as normal. Drop your drones, shoot the things, broadcast on time, all that good stuff. There is one important difference; you are going to have to KNOW YOUR WING. Somebody will probably tell you after you get in, but also, check the top of your fleet window occasionally: A minute or two before end of site, FC will announce which wings are leaving. About thirty seconds before, they'll drop an align broadcast. Get your drones and align! Ten seconds before the site ends, your wing commander will WING WARP you; take the wing warp. These times are approximate, I've never done this, I have no idea what I'm doing. What about PAYOUTS? If we're running 50% too many people (so only 2/3 of you get payout), we should also be running sites 50% faster (so payouts come 3/2 as fast). I think we'll even out. Ammo costs even out too; you get fewer payouts, but also have to fire fewer rounds/site. You *do* have more chances to lose drones, pay attention, don't lose your drones. All in all, Individual line pilots should be making the same amount of isk/hour as normal, just without having to lay around in Polstodur for several hours first. So, that's the idea. There's a lot of stuff I don't know yet. What do we do with people who x-ed up with multiple ships? What if there's four people left over from building wings, how do we fit those guys in? Probably about six other things will come up. This is all highly experimental; I'm confident that I won't get everyone killed, but beyond that, *shrug*. If you've got any ideas, please say so. We'll see how it goes.

    Daminion and I lost our partner this week, in game Abel Osito. Our NPSI group, Friday Yarrrr, will be holding a memorial fleet on Friday starting at 23:30. Details for the fleet written up by our group's co-founder for me are below. If you wish to join you can find our in game channel at Friday Yarrrr, with four rs. Dear Lovers of the Purple: This week, we in Hidden Flame have lost one of our own, Abel Osito, so this week's Friday YARRRRR! will be a fleet in Abel's memory. Since Abel was not a particularly blood thirsty pirate (too laid back for that), rather than having a FFA or some other battle to the death, we are going to go for a flashy light show. In order for everyone to be able to participate, we're going to keep the ship very simple: Ball of Light If you feel like bringing something shinier, feel free to do so, but it MUST have a cyno field generator of some type and no turrets or missile launchers, just lots of festival launchers. And your cargo hold should be full of ozone and fireworks. The only exception to this for the fleet will be a single scout, a single dictor, and a single self-repped tanky tackle (because we will make people see the light if we can). We shall wander the spaceways of New Eden, lighting up the sky until death comes, which it inevitably will, to all of us. If death comes to us more rapidly than usual, we will reship in Jita into a Retri fleet. Meet in Jita at 23:30. Empty clones are advised. -Coaxster

    Usual rule is 3 cycles then move on in heavy cap situations , capping the player who has the outuni when applicable . Problem is WTM seems to be getting a few new basi pilots as well as new pilots in general , No one tells the new logi that they should combat cap all the time , which they should be . No reason not too . Cap the vindi's that are burning out to the osti's , cap the hyperions or that rohk/maelstrom on a burn . Should be capping something is the point here . If all 3 or 4 of the basi wait for broadcasts , that is when they get overwhelm'd and that is where the issues start . Basi just have to try and do the best they can when giving out cap , something they have to deal with and can get better with time in fleet , sometime the fleet doesnt relise , basi are people too , you know . Should really encourage the newer pilots to consider cap implants and a better MWD as a first upgrade to make everyone's experience a little better but I guess that is another post .

    When a fleet is full of cap hungry pilots...I try to assign 2 to each combat cap basi. The idea is each basi constantly stops back and forth between the 2. On outuni or any other cap request... all basi immediately swap. For outuni.... the cc is rdecycled on fc outuni wave speech. When the basi listen and comply.. the number of cap bc dwindles to near zero......... I want to say amongst all the other issues the last 7 weeks is pilots not inposition from cap bc.... and most frustrating..pilot bc for cap after basi have been serving cap the entire site.. even worse.. they ASK for cap while im actively capping.

    Please dont feel bad about this. take it on your other fleet members that did not step up having the ship or the skill. and everyone in fleet should thank you because of you the fleet keep going. I know might be its overwhelming but you did nothing wrong. Next time keep doing your best. and your worst will be the best because no one else step up, they cannot complain because no one else step up.

    So, couple of things here. 1) 20 hrs ~= 2bil implies a fleet speed of >90mil / hr. My understanding is that this is no longer a certainty in EU Primetime. 2) Vindi hulls are still at about 800 mil (ish, and after rigs), and 500 plex is currently around 1.7 - 1.8 bil. This totals at least 2.5 bil So, with those prices, even assuming 90 mil/hr, that's about 28 fleet hours. So, I'd say at least 30 fleet hours as the limit. However, to accommodate EU Primetime and Darkstriker's point (which is a valid one, and probably shared by others), I'd recommend around 40 fleet hours, which generates 2.5 bil at about 60 mil / hr. Someone from EU TZ will have to chime in with what a typical reliable income is in that TZ, but I hope this figure should cover it, and will certainly exceed the need of the other time zones. TLDR; 20 hours will more than cover an optimal hull. 40 hours should easily cover a PLEX first (to get the faster training time into the opti hull) and then the hull itself.

    I would also like to say that this was not announced in the best way and apologize for that. Getting people to upgrade had been discussed via proposal and what not for awhile now and nothing was going anywhere. Blobert and I felt something needed to happen so we decided to announce this change with out much discussion into detail and how it would work. This will still be voted on at the next meeting however we wanted to clarify things with you guys, hear your questions and comments, and nail down some more details. We really do just want whats best for the community. With that being said, discussion within council has been productive and have agreed that tracking the time that somebody has been in fleet would be the best way to implement this. 20 hours in fleet is more than enough time to upgrade into an optimal hull even in a slower fleet. I have spoken to beryl asking if it was viable to add this feature in the waitlist. He says it's possible but will take some work to do but he likes the idea and once we nail down exactly what we want to do he can start working on it. The other option is we can more easily track how many times a pilot is removed from the waitlist after being found in fleet. We agreed that if the pilot flies for an hour each time they enter fleet or even just 2 sites per fleet, 20 times getting into fleet would be a good number. Sorry for the wall of text but we feel that the system of tracking hours or number of times entering fleet is more fair and accurate than a set length of time. Hopefully you guys feel the same way and this clears up some issues. TL:DR track hours or number of times in fleet instead of 4 week cap for everybody.

    Warp To Me Logi Rookie Guide Introduction Welcome to being a Logistics pilot for Warp To Me Incursions! This is a guide for flying Logistics Cruisers (Basilisks and Scimitars) in our fleets. If you haven't already, please read our Rookie Guide. Joining Fleet First, you need a ship! Please view our fittings webpage for our current fits for Logistics. Once you have a ship, please read our Rookie Guide or go to our Waitlist Manager to learn how to join our fleet. Fleet MOTD Once you're invited to fleet, take a look at our Fleet MOTD, containing very important information. Most importantly, note the Basi & Scimi Chat Links. Please join your respective channel, as those are used for communication purposes among your fellow Logi pilots. The MOTD will contain other bits of information, including Current System, TS3 Information, SRP Information, and the current specialized Fleet Roles. Of these fleet roles, note your CCC, DDD, Booster, and your FC. Add these people to your watchlist. Orbit the Booster at 10km The CCC manages the cap chain for the Basilisks DDD is the light drone bunny and receives priority remote links in TCRCs. Logistic Channels These sections will cover what to expect in your respective Logi channels (Basi chat or Scimi chat). Feel free to read only the section that pertains to you. Basilisks This is the chat channel that allows the Basilisk pilots to manage their cap chain to ensure cap stability and fleet safety. Upon entering this channel please state your logi cruiser level and the amount of remote sensor boosters you have fitted (if any). Once added to the cap chain you will check to see who you will be capping and who is capping you. Cap chains are needed to keep Basi pilots stable. You will use one or two of your cap transfers in the chain, depending on who is around you: Logi 5 Pilots need only one incoming cap transfer From the pilot below Logi 4 Pilots need two incoming cap transfers From pilots above & below Cap chains are always put in the order of names in the chat channel, and we always cap up to the person above us. If the LC has not had a chance to update the cap chain, use the chat window to determine your up cap. Pilots with a blue number before their name sets one cap transfer on the pilot above. The other cap transfer fulfills cap requests by the fleet, aka "combat cap". Pilots with a red number before their name uses both cap transfers One on the pilot above. One on the pilot below. A pilot who is above a Logi 4 pilot in the chain needs to cap up and down, not just up. This list also wraps around. For the pilot at the top of the cap chain, the person at the bottom is 'up'. For the pilot at the bottom of the chain, the person at the top is 'down'. Using the example image, here are the details. Pilot A is blue as he has a Logi 5 below him. He will be capping up to Pilot E (Top to bottom). Pilot B is red and will be capping up and down as he has a Logi 4 pilot below him. Pilot C is blue as he has a Logi 5 below him. It doesn't matter that Pilot C is Logi 4. Pilot D is blue as he has a Logi 5 below him. Pilot E is red as he has Pilot A below him, who is Logi 4 (Bottom to top), so Pilot E caps up and down. After Basi Pilot names in the cap chain, there may be Remote Sensor Booster (ReSeBo) Targets. Most of the time, this will either state DDD or Up. DDD: Set the ReSeBo on the DDD. Up: Set the ReSeBo on the Basi Pilot above. Scimitars This is the chat channel that the scimitars use to manage their Tracking links to ensure they are given out with efficiency. Upon enter this channel please state the amount of links you have and who you are linking. If you are not linking anyone ask for someone to be assigned to you. Otherwise link with the default priority: Drone Bunny 3x links (2x Tracking and 1x Optimal, unless otherwise requested) HHH (Range) VVV (Range) Blasters (Range) starting with Vindicators. Leshaks (Range) Any remaining links, double up on Vindicators. Using the example image, here are the details. Scimi Pilot A has 0 links. Scimi Pilot B has 3 links and is giving them to Pilot 1/2/3. Scimi Pilot C has 2 links and is giving them to Pilot 4/5. Scimi Pilot D has 2 links and is giving both to the DDD. Watch List As a Logi pilot, you should make use of your watch list, as it is a quick reference for locking, orbiting, or watching members. To add members to your watch list, right-click on their name, go to Fleet > Add to Watch List. You should add the following pilots to your watch list. Basi Pilots Up Cap Down Cap (if necessary) Booster DDD FC All other Basi Pilots (designate who would get cap if you have to "Cap Around" your up cap)) Newbros / Aggro Magnets Scimi Pilots Pilots you are linking (if necessary) Booster DDD FC Newbros / Aggro Magnets Entering Site Logi ships should try to avoid taking the initial aggro to reduce their risk of death. This means that in general you should be aligned but wait until you see a few battleships in warp before you activate the gate yourself. You do not want to be the only target on an otherwise empty grid with no backup. Upon entering a site, there are a number of things that you should do. As a general overview: Orbit the Booster with your Afterburner on (this stays on at all times) Lock up your Cap buddy (Basi) or Pilot you be linking (Scimi) Lock up all Shield Broadcasts Apply staggered reps to pilot taking aggro Orbit the Booster Once you land in site, get moving! Right click the Booster in your watch list and select Orbit > 10km. Always ensure you are orbiting the Booster with your Afterburner on. This will ensure that you are in the right spot as the Booster will take you where you need to go, and having the AB on will ensure your speed stays up so you can maintain your speed tank. Lock up your cap buddy or link buddy Once you have landed and are have set your orbit around the AAA, lock up your cap buddy and apply cap to set the cap chain (Basi) or lock your Link buddy and give tracking links (Scimi). These tasks need to be done each time you land in a room, and in the case of the Basi, it is imperative to fleet safety that this is done immediately upon landing in room. Lock up all Shield Broadcasts It is imperative that you lock all shield broadcasts every single time. The broadcasts will appear in the broadcast history window and can be color coded (as shown in the example image). A simple way to lock is hold down your lock hotkey and click on the broadcasts. Apply Reps In normal circumstances, you will lock up the person taking damage and give them 2 shield reppers. Try to stagger your reppers by about a second. This will ensure a steady stream of reps landing on the target. If Target is dropping past 50% shield, apply a third rep and then the Fourth when they drop below 25% shield. Remove the 3rd/4th reps as soon as the target has stabilized. Applying more reps than needed will cause you (the logi) to get aggro. Be ready to switch the reppers off of one target onto the next once the aggro switches. Always try to have a repper in reserve for this aggro switch. Site Details TPPH - 3 rooms. First room has an Outuni (Neuts). Second Room has low DPS. Third Room has 3 waves. Second wave has High DPS and Deltoles (Paints). Final wave has an Arnons (Jams) and Outunis (Neuts). Logi Should not be orbiting in the first 2 rooms of TPPH, just burn directly for the Gate. NRF - Multiple waves. Relatively low DPS throughout until the final wave. Final wave has 1-3 Outunis and 1-3 Deltoles. Heavy Neuts and Paint with a very hard switch. Logi Should be prepared for both initial aggro and then the switch at 60s for each wave. TCRC - Very High DPS at the start of the site, including Outunis (Neut) and Deltoles (Paint). The Outuni victim will need cap immediately, and afterwards, Deltole victim will need cap. The Delotes will hard switch onto a new target shortly after the Outunis are killed. Deltole Target Painters are very dangerous when applied to Logi. At the end of the site, Logi stay behind with FC until all other Battleships are off grid and FC will call for Logi to warp. Additional Logi Tactics There are times in which everything does not go according to plan. We expect our logi to be able to quickly adjust and correct any such circumstances. Too Many Targets There will be times when more people will broadcast than can be locked up at once. If you are out of available locks and a new broadcast appears, unlock pilots who are not taking damage for the new broadcasts. Remember that aggro does not carry over between waves, so if all Sansha are killed you may unlock/stop repping everyone. No Broadcasts Pilots will fail to notice they are being shot, we expect out logi to learn to catch/save these pilots even without the broadcast. Practice, watching the direction of the Sansha Lasers, Scram Notifications and your watchlist in order to identify these pilots. Once you find them, Start Locking them and Broadcast/Voice who the pilot is for the other logi. Overheating Occasionally, more repping power than is available is needed to save a pilot (normally in the case of a late broadcast). When this happens we expect our logi to be able to comfortably overheat in order to reduce their repper cycle time and save the pilot. It is suggested that you set up hotkeys to overheat your modules (default Shift + Module Activation key). Other modules can be overheated as well. Shield Hardeners to increase Tank, Prop Mod to Increase Speed. When you are overheating a module, it will generate heat that damages the overheated module as well as those around it. Be careful not to let modules generate too much heat or they will burn out and become unusable.

    Every optimal battleship and preferred starter can fly with meta guns for 90 in fleet hours before the FC can skip over you. So if you want you can fly one of those ships till you can plex your account and hop back into a logi boat.

    With CCP constantly nerfing my current sources of income, I think now is a good time to try incursions. I have flown logi for a major nullsec coalition for a long time and have been the Logi Anchor for a couple fleets. I have logi V and can fly all four empire logi cruisers with level 5 mastery. Based on the Rookie Guide and Logi Rookie Guide it looks like there are several differences between flying logi for large PvP fleets and incursions so I look forward to learning and practicing the incursion tactics. Hopefully I will be flying with and repping you all soon.

    Love this idea, Am willing to throw some spare mods at this. Perhaps a buy back program, as in when you upgrade from newbro/Alpha fits you can sell back to the newbro freebie program in order to perpetuate the program... Additional qualifiers. 1 not for alts. 2. For newbro who is performing well in fleet. No point upgrading of the upgrade goes to waste.

    I just added a short note to the logi rookie guide covering that point. When FC calls a TCRC full fleet in, that's the exception, as the anchor is already taking the aggro.

    There are eight sites that WarpToMe runs, in between HQ's, assaults, and vanguards... and one that we don't. The "Nation Consolidation Network" remains a mystery to me and to nearly everyone else here. Let's go look at it. The NCN, you land on it and it's TWO gates; the right side allows normal incursion fleets through, the left side doesn't let battleships in. We need something a little different. I've brought a pile of Taloses to dockup, and will be handing them out to blaster-boat pilots; with proper support they should be able to handle the left side. Some are set up with T2 guns, some with meta-4. Here's the T2 fit: [Talos, Talos] Damage Control II Magnetic Field Stabilizer II Magnetic Field Stabilizer II Magnetic Field Stabilizer II Tracking Enhancer II Large Shield Extender II Multispectrum Shield Hardener II Tracking Computer II Stasis Webifier II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Medium EM Shield Reinforcer I Medium Processor Overclocking Unit I Medium Core Defense Field Extender I Acolyte II x5 Void L x1337 Null L x1337 Caldari Navy Antimatter Charge L x640 Optimal Range Script x2 If you feel like bringing your own battlecruiser, or a T3 cruiser, or something like Malcom's Huggin... hey, it's all good.

    Line Pilots are now allowed to fly T3 Logistic Cruisers. Currently, only the Loki will be accepted into fleets. In order to Fly a T3 Cruiser, a pilot must first prove that they are a capable Logistics pilot by earning the Trusted Logi badge from a WTM Line Commander. Once a pilot has the Trusted Logi badge, they may apply to fly T3s. The application includes a skill check and some questions regarding the differences between flying T2 and T3 Logi. Pilots who are approved will receive an “Approved T3” badge from a Certified Trainer on Teamspeak. Only those with the badge are allowed to fly T3s. Please ensure you are connected to the WTM Teamspeak when you x-up your T3 so the FC can confirm your badge. Approved T3 Logistic Pilots must always x up with a Logistics Cruiser V Basilisk in addition to the T3 and be willing to switch as needed. Rep Application: T3 Logi use 8 Medium Remote Shield Boosters vs the T2 Logi’s 4 Large Remote Shield Boosters. The medium reps have a much shorter optimal range (7km vs 32km), and less repping power per rep than the Large but the additional modules (8vs4) allow the T3 logi to outrep T2 logi at any distance. When applying reps, 1.5 medium reps are equivalent to 1 Large Rep; so, in a situation where you would normally apply 2 large reps, you want to use 3 medium reps. T3 cruisers get large bonuses to Overheating: the Offensive subsystem skill increases the benefits of overheating by 50%. T3 pilots therefore should expect to use heat far more liberally. Anchoring: For the TPPH and NRF it is not really necessary to do anything different than T2 Logi (orbit Booster at 10km). For the TCRC, enter as normal and set up orbit on Booster. Once the tower bash starts, orbit a ship closer to the tower (a Leshak is recommended). T2 vs T3 Benefits: T2 logi bring utility to the fleet in the form of Combat Caps, Remote Sensor Boosters and Remote Tracking Computers. T3 logi do not bring any utility. T3 logi rep harder than T2 logi. T3 logi are also more tanky than their T2 counterparts; therefore, they can more freely use their reps. Getting aggro in the T3 is not as dangerous as a T2 logi. Skill Requirements: T3 cruisers require extensive skills to perform at their best. All of the following skills are mandatory for T3 pilots. Ship skills: Strategic Cruiser IV Subsystems: Offensive V Core V Propulsion IV Defensive I Engineering Capacitor Management V Capacitor Systems Operation V CPU Management V Hull Upgrades IV Power Grid Management V Shield Emission Systems V Thermodynamics IV Nanite Interfacing IV Navigation Navigation V Acceleration Control IV Afterburner IV Evasive Maneuvering IV Fuel Conservation IV Shields Shield Management V Shield Upgrades IV Tactical Shield Manipulation IV Targeting Advanced Target Management III Note: in the event that you lose a T3 ship and therefore a subsystem skill level, you are not permitted to fly a T3 again until your skills meet the requirements specified above. Other Rules and Regulations: All Tech III Logistics ships must use 8x Pithum A-Type Medium Remote Shield Boosters. All Tech III Logistics ships must be 6 rep stable. All Tech III Logistics ships must use Tech II Afterburners, at minimum; MWD’s are not permitted. All Tech III Logistics ships must meet or exceed 75% in all shield resistances without Command Bursts. All Tech III Logistics ships must be capable of reaching 50,000 Effective Hit Points (EHP) without Command Bursts. The Loki requires the Dissolution Sequencer subsystem. Fits: T3 Application

    Keep in mind that exactly in the times where you get multiple broadcasts, you want the service to be spread. If there's 10 broadcasts in a minute (likely on the way to the anchor spot in TPPH 3rd room), it's much more important that everyone has SOME cap to get them moving RIGHT NOW, than getting anyone up to 70%. That mach with low cap skills can burn to his anchor spot just fine on 2-3 cycles from 1 basi and just regen once he gets there. Approaching your proposal from the other side: a cycle from a T2 transmitter takes around 3.5s after boosts (sorry, don't have the exact numbers here at work). 3 cycles would take 10.5 seconds. If there's 10 broadcasts, it would take 105 seconds (i.e. over 1,5 minutes) to get to the last their cap. (probably more, because server ticks probably add 1-2 seconds to every switch-over for every basi, so closer to 2 minutes). That's way too long for someone to have to sit on a beacon... I could see this work great in a fleet op optimal ships with high-skilled pilots that know how to manage their cap and can keep fighting down to 10% cap and then have enough to coastto their spot. But in a fleet where that's true for only half your pilots and some of the others are Rokh and Maels who, at 30% cap are 2 MWD cycles away from capping out, it's probably won't work that great. And like Malcolm just pointed out, it's a way to clear kinda-sorta clear the worst of a backlog when stuff gets out of hand.

    Due to large changes in the strength of resistance modules being implemented by CCP we are making changes into our doctrine to match this. Many of these changes are very cheap and simple and some will put into place a change that was pretty much already required just not noted. The largest of these changes is we won't be running single invuln battleships for the foreseeable future. These changes will go into effect and be required starting downtime of April 15th, 2020. The patch will hit either on that day or shortly after so unfortunately we can't allow for a longer adjustment period.

    Nightmares and Basilisks are both being changed to require Tech 2 or better cap transfers. How this is defined is slightly different based on the ship. Nightmares can use Tech 2 Cap transfer and Faction Cap transfers. Basilisks can use Tech 2 Cap transfers, Faction Cap transfers, and Storyline Cap transfers. New Basilisk required cap delta is -70.2 for level 5 and -140.4 for level 4. There is a two week grace period before this becomes the requirement. This change will go into effect downtime April 5th, 2020 UTC.

    I've been looking at ways to get the sig amp onto a basi with T2 cap transmitters, and yea, it's really hard with incoming meta. I'd like to see what you're starting with exactly. The main thing is: do you have one or two T2 transfers? I haven't found a way to have both T2 transfers and a sigamp, while being within fitting restrictions and stable with incoming meta transfer. However, I have found that: if you use one meta (for the cap chain, per current standard) and one T2 (for the fleet) cap transfer, (along with Republic Fleet LSE, which has the lowest PG of the faction ones) that solves your fitting problem, and alleviates the cap problem, leaving you at -63.1 delta. From there, abyssals are still your savior; if you get a perfect (and I mean absolutely perfect) activation cost roll, you are at -62.2 delta. Sensor Linking V will then be useful to buy you that extra 0.1 buffer... it's super tight, but can be done. That AB will not be cheap, though if you're willing to focus exclusively on the activation cost, and sacrifice the rest, it might be reasonable... But there's one more option: another implant. Not sure what's in your slot 7, but ES-706 (should be available from CONCORD) will reduce the activation cost of the cap transfers by 6%. With the mixed transfers and stock faction other mods that puts you at -61.5 delta. I think that's your best bet, if you can spare your slot 7 implant.

    Answering your question in order, shoot letters in order followed by numbers in order. Always shoot when you can, but never tag J! Use heavies whenever possible, lights for when FC asks for them. I would use tracking whenever possible, assuming you have meta guns with faction ammo, sometimes you may wanna load an optimal, such as in NRF last waves or in Assault sites, but you should have plenty of falloff to cover you. In TPPH and NRF you always wanna drop drones when the fleet is first coming into site and assign them. If you are late on grid, get to your anchor first, then drop drones, as they are slower than you are so it saves time to carry them there. In TCRCs only drop drones when called for as they can cause some split aggro. Sites will come more naturally the more you fly them, as there are only 3 HQ sites we run normally, it'll come quickly A quick run down of each site TPPH or True Power Provisional Headquarters, 3 rooms, last room has 3 waves followed by a tower bash, the slowest site NRF or Nation Rebirth Facility, 1 room, 4 waves, no tower bash TCRC or True Creation Rebirth Facility, 1 room, respawning rats with a tower bash, the fastest but most dangerous site, make sure to listen to your FC in these sites! Feel free to ask questions, and if you have trouble understanding ask if FC could type it out in fleet chat for you. Welcome to WTM o7

    Hi, just found my way into Incursions with you guys and did want to say hi and Introduce myself a bit. (hope thats the right area for that :3 ) My IG Name is Nemrod Dreamwalker, named Michael in rl. Im 35 Years old and from germany. I Play Eve since 2012 but with a lot of breaks. Last break took 1 1/2 years and i reentered around christmas. My english is... mh.. how to describe it....MEH.... I mean.. i can write and read it, but i have issues speaking it or understand it when someone speak it (especially those fcs who speak like 200 words/minute) but i try to learn it :D. Didnt speak or listened to english for the last 18 years, so sorry if i missunderstand or miss something, but i always give my best. Thanks so far for my first 3 Incursion fleets in eve, fly safe all, have a nice day and see you in fleet

    Really, the *next* thing to do is to get really good at the ship you're trained for. Vindicators do a lot of stuff: 1) Memorize the target priorities for the rooms & sites, so that you can start burning and web down the correct thing as soon as you land, even if FC hasn't tagged yet. Also, *calling* those webs, so that you can coordinate with others.Getting the Ostingeles webbed next to each other so that you can burn 'em all down at once is a fun little mini-game 2) VVV! Learn where the anchor spots are. Learn how to powerslide to a stop 5km *beyond* the anchor spots, so that all those people following you at 5km end up sitting RIGHT in the middle of the next spawn. A good VVV is the difference between a DPS squad that fires at max damage and one that fires at half damage. 3) HHH. Same general idea. Be the guy who sends drones 5km to their next target, not the one who makes them run 50km across the field. 4) DDD. You know the trick where you can make drones chew on a Renyn over there, while webbing & pounding on Schmaeels over here? Can you end a TCRC with a pile of dead Niarjas sitting right at your feet? This stuff matters. Once you've got all that down... usually if somebody is looking for a second ship type, they'll go for logi. It's a longish train, about ten weeks if you're starting from just the battleship skills, but that just means you've got time to practice that DDD trick

    All pilots must upgrade to an optimal hull (Vindi, Nightmare, Leshak, Mach or logi with a proper fit from our fitting website) within 20 X-UPs OR 30 in fleet hours. Pilots who fail to meet this requirement will be skipped in favor of pilots who have met the requirement. Pilots who fail to meet this requirement are still allowed in WTM Fleets.

    If you're new, and you get in my logi wing, I'll say these things to you. Even if you've read this post, I'm gonna say them. Also, yes, that's how long it takes to say this stuff in voice; those speed runs through "Fox In Socks" finally paid off. -- Logi have four jobs: join your logi chat and do what they tell you, move, rep people who broadcast for shield, and basi's have to keep the cap chain going. Setting up As soon as you join fleet, hit the link in fleet MOTD to join basi-chat or scimi-chat. Say "Hi," give your Logistics Cruiser level and how many links/resebo's you have. Join and say hi even if you don't have any links, don't make me hunt you down and ask. Add AAA to your watchlist. If you're a basilisk, add your cap buddies. If your logi-chat gives you link or resebo targets, add them too. Make sure your fleet window's open. You'll need the "My Fleet" tab to find us for the first time, then switch to the "History" tab so you can see shield broadcasts. Move! The instant you land in a site, find your AAA in your watchlist and orbit him at 10km. Turn on your prop mod. Stay like this forever. First exception to this rule: In the first two rooms of a TPPH site, find the EXIT gate, and orbit that at 500m. When any battleship gets up next to the gate, switch your orbit to the battleship. Second exception: at times, the FC will send an "align" broadcast. Align and turn your prop mod OFF. This always happens at the end of a TCRC, and occasionally at other times. Rep people. Lock up every person who broadcasts for shield asap. Every last one, all of them, no exceptions. Use your judgement as to how much rep to drop on which people. Some folks just have a troll frigate nibbling them, some get the whole room. Try not to run all four reppers at once. It attracts aggro and makes you slow to help a new person when Sansha change targets. Stagger your reps. Don't drop several reppers on a person at once, do it like "REP one thousand REP two thousand REP". Cap chain Basilisks always cap up. Cap the person who's immediately above you in the user list of basi-chat; if you're the top of the list, cap the guy on the bottom. Basilisks ABOVE a basi with Logistics 4 also cap down. If the number next to your name in basi-chat MOTD is RED, you're above a L4 basi, use your second transmitter to cap them. Send cap to your cap buddies on gates! We hang eighty billion isk worth of battleships off that cap chain, testing it is important. Basilisks with a free cap transmitter send cap to fleet. Watch for cap broadcasts. If you have a free transmitter, type the first few letters of the guy's name in basi-chat, lock him, and start capping. If somebody types "FRED" just as you were planning to cap Fred, you can either find another cap target or just type "+" to say "I'm capping him too." If we get more cap broadcasts than we can handle at once, send each person three or four cycles of cap and move on to the next one. If you get neuted out or jammed, you can't send cap, and your friends have to deal with that. Tell basi-chat by typing "NNN" (for neuts) or "JJJ" (for jams.) Type "-NNN" or "-JJJ" when the effect ends. Some people also type "WWW" when they're webbed. If the basi you are capping gets neuted out, jammed, or blown up, deal with it by using your second cap transmitter to send cap to THEIR cap buddy. Sometimes this gets complicated and the LC has to tell people where to send their combat caps; when this happens, listen and do what they're telling you. Sites - Each site we do has a particular moment that gives the logi fits. Know them. TPPH - In the third room, on the third wave, there are three Arnons (which jam) and two Outunis (which neut). All combat caps go to the Outuni's target. NRF - The fourth and final wave contains 1-3 Outunis. All combat caps to the Outuni target! After 20-30 seconds, back off to two reps on the person getting hit, because in 45 seconds the entire room switches to a new target, all at once. TCRC - The instant you land, lock up AAA and start repping him. Two seconds later, we get attacked by Outunis, Deltoles (which do EVERYTHING) and Niarjas (jams). Aggro goes everywhere, half the fleet broadcasts for shields, and at least one basi gets neuted out or jammed. If a Scimitar takes aggro during this part, throw armor bots at them immediately, the room can alpha right through their shields and well into armor. Finish your coffee before we go in, please.

    Anchoring Guide - PICTURES ARE CURRENTLY OUT OF DATE Anchors are special positions a person is heading towards or following, to get the maximum DPS out of the fleet and having everyone at their optimal ranges of the Sansha or the respective tower. The AAA has the job to get the snipers and leshaks into their positions. The VVV has the job of getting the DPS ships into their positions. These anchoring spots have been tested several times, as I was not sure about the distances. They are correct, follow them and you will have no trouble anchoring on all three sites. TPPH Room 1 and 2 Everyone should be burning towards the outgate to go into the next room. For the final room, check the picture below. Room 3 AAA: 1. Burn straight left of the tower. 2. Height should be somewhere around the middle of the tower. (80km off the beacon) 3. 20KM off the tower. VVV: 1. Make a wide turn (as show in the picture) so everyone can shoot the Ostingeles. 2. Burn towards the first anchoring spot. (2nd wave) 3. Height should be above the tower. (90km off the beacon) 4. About 20 km off the tower. NRF The most difficult VVV anchor. AAA isn’t that difficult. Check picture for exact references. AAA: 1. Burn straight towards the initial spawn of the Sansha and then past them/up until you are at 90KM from the beacon, 50km right of the tower, just above the top of the spikes on the tower. 2. Burn Directly "left" (if looking at the room from the beacon) 40KM. You should burn past the short range DPS. 3. Burn Towards Booster until Final Wave Spawns and then Burn towards Yulais. VVV: 1. Burn straight slightly right of the tower, between the mushroom (Sansha Deadpsace Outpost) and the smaller sansha tower (Sansha Starbase Control Tower). (60km off the beacon, 20 off the tower) 2. After the 2nd wave is almost killed, go towards the 3rd wave. (85km off the beacon, 20km off the tower) 3. After the 3rd wave is almost killed, go towards the 4th wave. (80km off the beacon, 45km off the tower) TCRC This is the easiest positioning for both AAA and VVV. AAA: 1. Burn straight towards the tower (turning off your MWD as soon as you start taking aggro), keeping it at about 15km range. 2. Aggress the tower to consolidate aggro. (This means that you will get all of the Sansha ships to agress you and keep fire away from other pilots) VVV: 1. When the FC tells you to Burn straight towards the tower, keeping it in your optimal range. DDD: 1. Burn towards the Drone Bunny spot. DDD Guide
