Standing Fleet is a form of fleet specific for each campus and aims to provide better communication between pilots within the same region of space, quick response whenever a member capsuleer in distress and defensive force whenever the campus is subjected to hostile action. Each member of the fleet can freely do their solo or group tasks such as PvE, Mining, PvP or Trading, since there is no specific purpose of the standing fleet itself, but in times of emergency, fleet is transformed into Quick Response Fleet in order to defend a fellow capsuleer, to repel any hostile entity and to defend the space and assets of the EVE University.

How to join the Standing Fleet

  1. Open the Fleet window via your NeoCom (NeoCom->Social->Fleet)
  2. Set the "Scope" to "My Available Fleets"
  3. Set "Range" and "Min. Standing" to "Any"
  4. Look for a fleet named "Standing Fleet" specific for your campus such as HSC Standing Fleet, LSC Standing Fleet, etc.
  5. Right click on the fleet and select "Join" or simply double-click to join the fleet (remember to drop your current fleet if you are in one).

Once you are in fleet:

  1. Right click on the four lines of the Fleet tab in the top left corner of the window and select "View as Hierarchy". If that option does not exist, you are already in hierarchy mode.
  2. Find your name in the fleet hierarchy (note that your current Wing & Squad will have a Green arrow next to it).
  3. Drag and drop your name in to the appropriate Wing/Squad.
  4. Check the MotD (Message of the Day) of the Fleet and join the proper Mumble channel (For standing fleets it is the Campus specific Mumble Channel)

Setting up a Standing Fleet

If you go looking for the Standing Fleet of your campus and cannot find it, ask if there is a fleet up in Mumble or Campus chat channel. If not, or you geat no answer, you are advised to set up a standing fleet and then share the advert of the standing fleet in the campus chat channel to inform campus members about the fleet so they can join the fleet. Also note that anybody can set up the Standing Fleet. Being Fleet Boss is not the same as being Fleet Commander (FC) (Check: Standing Fleet Boss).

Standing Fleet Boss

The main job of the fleet boss is to manage the fleet such as curating message of the day, setting free-move and moving people in and out of Fleet/Wing command positions when asked to do so. Also, they are responsible for adding/removing new Wings and Squads as needed. The fleet boss is not "in charge" of the campus, nor is he/she the "FC" of the fleet. Fleet boss is simply an administrative role.

Accepting Fleet Boss

If boss is passed to you, either as a result of you volunteering or being "ninja bossed", the Fleet Advert window will pop up on your screen. Verify the Advert settings are correct as specified above and select the "Submit" button. This will update the Fleet finder with the fact that you are the new boss. Save the fleet setup from the Fleet windows setting menu for future use, if you have not done this before.

Passing Fleet Boss to Another

If you are ready to leave fleet and are the current boss, you must pass the boss position to another in fleet first. Ask for volunteers in the Fleet Chat and/or Mumble. Make every reasonable effort to pass boss to someone who is active. Once you have your volunteer, pass fleet boss to them by right clicking their name in chat or the fleet window, followed by a left click on "Make Boss".

Storing Standing Fleet Settings

You can store your fleet setup for easy re-use.

  1. In the fleet menu, click the four lines to open the menu.
  2. Click "Store Fleet Setup" option
  3. Enter the name "Campus Standing Fleet" (since standing fleet setups may vary for each campus it is best to name your standing fleet setup after your campus, such as HSC Standing Fleet, LSC Standing Fleet, etc) and check "Include Current Free-move Setting" and "Include Message of the Day".
