So … there are a lot of terms for an organized or disorganized group of ships (fleet, task force), or of people (crowd, mob, battalion, about a bajillion others). But, what about when the ships are functionally people, or can switch freely from one to the other?
Assuming it’s not like a call sign (which apparently you’re never supposed to give yourself), it seems necessary (or at least fun) to come up with a good collective noun for ourselves. So-- thoughts?
A few initial things that spring to mind for “A _____ of capsuleers”:
A blob (traditional; also pejorative)
A mass (equally appropriate for Amarr and those in Triglavian ships. Twice as appropriate for Amarr flying Triglavian ships!)
A hunt (but really this serves the same purpose as “fleet,” and might be a little influenced by my time in PYRE anyway)
A grin (imagine a bunch of us closing in with a hungry look in our eyes. Again, PYRE-inspired, though)
A killing (covers both what we do and what we usually make as a result)
An omelette (of eggers)
A scramble (maybe just for tacklers?)
