Overview of the Fleet Command Course ("FCC")

The Fleet Command Course is a program of learning designed to encourage and support new and emerging Fleet Commanders within Eve University under the Cross Campus Initiative

Fleet combat is one of the most exciting, unique and inspiring aspects of EVE, and it all starts with people choosing to step up, undock, and lead their friends and corp mates out to find fights. FCs help make EVE what it is. They help change the outcome of wars, shape the political landscape of EVE, and provide people with the memories which keep them coming back to this game

The FCC was first established because EVE needs content creators, people who don't moan, don't spin in station, they gather up the pilots, devise a plan, and they DO. The FCC may not instantly make you into the Napoleon of EVE, but we're here to help you take the first steps towards greatness, and to have fun doing so

Join our community, progress through our ranks, become the Fleet Commander

What Does the FCC Offer?

Structured Learning Plan

Icon skillbook1.png The FCC Ranks system provides a rank progression linked to fleets flown, both in terms of number of fleets, and type of doctrines flown. The plan is designed to produce well rounded FCs with extensive experience across various doctrines, areas of space, and ship size, who are comfortable leading fleets of all shapes and sizes against your opponents

Completion of the full training plan, and attainment of the "Commander" Rank is rewarded with a shiny Fleet Commander Medal to impress all your friends

Fleet Feedback and Fleet Template Collection

Icon contract.png While all FCs are required to write an After Action Report (AAR) on the Uni forums explaining what they learned, FCC members also get access to an anonymous feedback form for their fleet participants. Feedback is consolidated and sent out within a few days of the fleet, providing an additional learning source for our FCs.

The Fleet Template Collection to quickly generate fleet announcments, slack pings or AARs.

The FCC Mentor Scheme

Icon leader.png The FCC Mentor Scheme is comprised of volunteers from our most experienced FCs across all timezones, who have generously agreed to act as Mentors for any junior FC new to the course who wishes for some additional help and guidance. The whole of the FCC community remains there as a means of support for everyone, however if you request it, we will also provide a 1:1 relationship with a senior FC who can be your first port of call for your questions, and who will make every attempt to attend your fleets and act as your Second in Command

The FCC Doctrine Library

Icon ship.png The FCC Doctrine Library is a archive of consolidated information about commonly flown doctrines for any new FC looking at doctrine ideas. The pages to include not only to the fits themselves, but also tactics and suggestions on how to fly them, as well as providing an easily linked source for the doctrine when making Fleet announcements/forum posts.

These are not official doctrines, and members do not have to follow them, but they are for suggestion and inspiration purposes only, and to help with ideas to fulfill the FCC doctrine requirements

E-Uni Fleet Commander Community

The FCC community is built up of people throughout the Uni, from active FCs, to semi-retired experienced players, and new aspiring FCs without a fleet to their name. Together we provide advice and guidance on all aspects of Fleet Command

  • Dedicated FCC Slack for out of game discussion of all aspects of FC'ing
  • The FCC has it's own FCC subforum on the EVE Uni Forums
  • The FCC Mailing List also distributes useful information, and updates on a regular basis

Other benefits and Initiatives

The FCC is continually evolving, and new initiatives and projects are always under consideration or implementation. Previous such examples have been:

  • Working to design official FCC Battlecruiser doctrines
  • Mapping of our regular roaming locations and producing communal tactical bookmarking packs for FCC members

How Do I Join the FCC?

The requirements to join are there simply to ask the Junior FC to dedicate time to both the course and to Eve University, although there is an element of recommended experience which will help any aspiring FC. That said, it is only recommended experience to provide a good foundation level of knowledge and not a hard requirement.

Requirements to Join:

Icon large green check.png
  • Interested in becoming an FC and willing to commit to the course
  • Freshman title

Recommended Experience to start:

  • Participated in at least 5 Uni fleets in any capacity (Recommendation only)
  • Scouting 101/DSCAN course complete (Recommendation only)
  • Scouted in at least 3 Uni fleets (Recommendation only)

If you feel that the FCC is the place for you, please complete this short form and a member of the team will be in contact.

FCC Ranks and Requirements

The FCC Ranks are a means to provide a structured learning path through the many various types of fleets and styles of FCing. While there are four main ranks, these can be broadly divided into two main sections.

  • The first section culminates at the rank of LT and certifies you as a competent FC for most of the E-Uni fleets you will encounter.
  • The second section culminates with the achievement of the rank of CDR. This certifies you as an experienced FC and a medal will be awarded. The second section will expose you to most of the fleet roles and fleet types that you will encounter in EVE. It will not make you an expert, but give you enough exposure to be a useful FC in both E-Uni and future corporations you may join.
