My name is Eldred Cain. I am running a group open to everyone that is aimed at helping new players make money! We do fleets for ratting and mining in all types of space (wormhole, highsec, lowsec, null).
It doesn’t matter what ingame corp you are part of, anyone is welcome to join one of our fleets. Ships will be handed out at jita and any unfamiliar game mechanics will be taught before continuing to the chosen isk making activity for that day.
What’s there not to understand? They form a public fleet, do PvE content (Mining, L4s, EpicArcs, WH sites, 0.0 anos, TrigHunting, Abyssals whatever) together and agree not to shoot each other as long as the operation lasts. Others who run into their guns or try to mess with the fleet are simply shot (probably except by those in the fleet who are blue to the outsider). When they have done their PvE, they will most likely meet at some highsec station, profits are shared and everyone goes their way until they meet the next time.
Public fleets are not uncommon, who says they have to be be PvP focused all the time?
Seems a bit of a tautology, as by definition NPCs will be ‘not purple’. Unless one is panning to attack faction warfare fleets…but that would be total chaos as the members of one’s fleet might be from different sides. So really the ‘NP’ bit is irrelevant and its a ‘lets bash NPCs’ fleet.
Hey everyone! Sorry for taking a bit to respond. This guy sumed it up well. Yes NPSI is a less than perfect way to describe what I am doing, but I used the term because most people are familiar with it. My group is similiar to any incursion group that is open to everyone, it runs in a very similiar way. We meet up in a highsec system (like jita) and handout ships. Then we do any isk making activity that was chosen for that day (mining, group wormhole ratting, gas harvesting). My goal is to help new players make isk and learn game mechanics in a easy way. To help with this goal I plan to use very low skill point ships and wormholes to reach lowsec and null without making fleets too lengthy.
You get the benefits of a structured fleet, handout ships and isk making, without any of the MANY requirements a lot of even the most casual corps make you go through. Think spectre fleet but for mining ratting and missioning.
