Fleet Channel MOTD Template

Rendezvous: [Location] @ XXXX XXXX = EVE time in military format (“eg. 2200 = 10pm GMT”)
Broadcasts should be made using the Fleet window. [If the enemy is spotted, you should retreat at once] The last portion is required in some fleets (eg. most mining ops) and not in others (eg. PVP roams)
[If anyone types jibberish such as fsdfuiwerhdfssd, then an enemy has been spotted and everyone should warp out immediately.] Usually applicable to mining fleets
[If CONCORD leaves, leave immediately – do not wait to be told to leave.] Only applicable to some Hisec fleets
[EVE Voice/etc] is [required/encouraged but not required]
Random roll calls may be issued to ensure everyone is present and responsive. When a roll call is issued, you should say “PRESENT” as quickly as possible.
=== Objectives ===
– Exploration (Data/Relic): Escort and defend exploration ships while they search for and hack cans
– Freight Convoy: Escort and defend transport ships Many fleets might require convoys throughout or in the second half. Thus, this is a common second objective
– Piracy: Gank easy targets in nullsec
– PVP Roam: Gank suspects, criminals, and war targets
– Ratting: [X]/10 sites
– Mission Running: [NPC CORP] [L?] [TYPE ie. Security]
– Mercoxit Mining
– Ore Mining: Arkonor, Bistot, Crokite, Dark Ochre, Gneiss, Spodumain, Hedbergite, Hemorphite, Jaspet, Kernite, Omber, Plagioclase, Pyroxeres, Scordite, Veldspar These ores are listed in order of greatest to least value. The priorities may change based on ore availability or what minerals are in short supply
– Ice Mining: Krystallos, Gelidus, Dark Glitter, Glare Crust; Blue Ice (O), Clear Icicle (He), Glacial Mass (H), White Glaze (N) Isotopes are only found in the Hisec ices, and they are only used for making fuel blocks. Apart from different isotopes, the highsec ices are identical to each other. Since fuel blocks are not interchangeable, the four Hisec ices are equivalent for all intents and purposes
– Gas Harvesting (Boosters): Amber (Shield), Golden (Missile), Viridian (Tracking), Celadon (Armor), Lime (Optimal Range), Malachite (Capacitor), Azure (Falloff), Mermillion (Sig Radius) Found in Hisec and Lowsec only. Most constellations do not contain gas, and those that do only contain one kind.
– Gas Harvesting (Fullerenes): C320, C540, C72, C28, C50, C32, C84, C60, C70 Found in w-space only. Multiple fullerenes may be found in any given reservoir. This list is partially sorted from greatest to least value
=== Loot/Salvage Collection ===
We [WILL/WILL NOT] be collecting loot and salvage. Most of the time you will want to collect salvage, but there are a few times you won’t. For example: if you are doing low-end PVP (eg. L1-L3 missions or equivalent), or if you are looking to grind standings as fast as possible, then looting/salvaging will not be worth the time or effort.
Loot/Salvage Distribution: [FREE FOR ALL/AT THE END] Free For All is ideal. Any other mechanism can get sticky since other collection strategies are less efficient and unenforceable with game mechanics. At The End is enforceable by virtue of the entire loot history being made available and therefore accountable. Anything in-between the two extremes is not recommended
=== Jetcan Collection ===
“[RYOGA]” (Archer): donation to [RYOGA]

“[UIM]” (ClanLogan): redistributed at end

If multiple corps are collecting jetcans for different reasons, we need a way to ensure that the right jetcans are collected by the right people. There are a few ways to do this. If you check the owner of the jetcan and determine that person to be in your corp, then you can generally collect their can. Another way: whenever you jetcan, set the name of the can to the corp who should collect it and for what purpose as indicated to the left.

=== Fleet Openings ===

– Needs:
– Wants:
– Acceptable:

There are numerous factors that go into a role. While you might not get exactly what you want, you should specify them enough that they can be satisfied. Roles should be listed in order of preference. For example, in a mining fleet, you might NEED Logi support, you might WANT additional barges, and additional combat ships would be acceptable for joining.

With the exception of Incursions, “the more the merrier” usually applies, but not always. To say the least, additional pilots can serve as a decoy or distraction.
