CAC SOB Merger possibility.
« on: March 09, 2012, 10:43:48 PM »
As, both of us have big gaping holes in our lineups in STO (dunno how you guys are doing in swtor), the guys, Bubble, and Naevius and I got to talking about a merger with the SOB fellas. It would bolster both of our rosters considerably and give us a fighting edge against the Pandas.

We have very similar cultures between our guilds/fleets.
We're talkin setting up a 3rd fleet, as we working out the logistics. If nothing else it should help us thin out inactive ranks etc. :)
Give your input guys, as this is a huge step forward potentially. I'd love to hear suggestions and comments.

Our first order of business of course is comin up with names, see where the teams go etc.

Right now I'm thinking of this as more like "Move your main PvP toon(s) over to this combined fleet."

I probably will only move 2.

P.S. We need a logo!

I'm against mergers, Allicances are fine, combined secondary groups are fine.  Mergers have never served us well.  Know that things have been sparse lately but thats not unusual at this time of year.  With D3 coming and the SWTOR mega patch, plus Tribes for the run & gun folks there will be plenty of stuff ahead for us I think.

SWTOR? You still playin' that? I thought that game dried up like a popcorn fart. Thought you went back to RIFT.
All this happened... more, or less.

I wonder about their sub numbers. Mine is still running (I think I did 3 months), but I doubt I'll renew it. I'd like to see the numbers in 6 months - I suspect they will stabilize around 1 million.

They have fixed a lot, and they will be fixing a lot more.  Subs usually increase after 3 months and then rise or fall after depending on what the community feels.

They'd have to take it out of EA/BioWare's hands and do a full, from the ground up, re-write to get me back. That fuckin' Lucas raped the stormtroopers again as far as I can tell.

so, what is/was the outcome on the merger? i still play in STO at least once a week but haven't seen or heard from any of ya'll on news, mergers etc....i know STO isn't intresting at the moment (aka all the same old episoles being played again with a few community episoles thrown in there to keep you teased) but are we still a fleet? i would at least try to prove i am worthy enough after being in the fleet for over two years to get a promotion or at least be told what is coming down the pike for future fleet develoments. i admit this is the first time i've been in the admirials club in a long time but i do read the mail in STO when ya'll do post something, so i guess i am just wondering if the future of CAC is in jepardy.

The merger ended as a new fleet (TMF). I have two toons there for PvP, but the rest are still in CAC. I've only gotten on recently to level a couple of new toons (using up me last slots,) but I'll probably get back in to PvP and do fleet stuff when it arrives. (I've been travelling a fair bit, so my game time is irregular.)

I'm not totally sure myself how many people are playing or what's going on - it may be time to try to get a fleet meeting.

I'm still here, with all 9 captains. (6 Fed, 3 Klink arm). I'm on, pretty much everyday, updating duty rosters. Sounds like everyone here, save Kalin, will be around for S6. I have been thinking about withdrawing, and going with a more "Trek focused" fleet, though. Or even runnning independent, for awhile. Now that there's an account bank, I'm kind of hoping Cryptic will go all the way, and let people with multiple captains, create their own fleets. Anyhow, I'm keeping an open mind, and remaining optomistic for the future of the game.
