For some time now, EVE University has restricted its fleet commanders to alliance members and a select few members with specific standings, but yesterday on July 16th, EVE University CEO Kelduum Revaan announced the formation of a ‘Guest Fleet Commander’ program.
This will allow select Fleet Commanders from different corporations and alliance within EVE to act as fleet commanders for EVE University fleets, allowing the students to gain a wider range of experience from FCs with different skill-sets and styles.
We spoke to a couple of E-UNI Freshmen, Xelrich who was quite excited:
After merely sitting with her in channel and seeing her amazing knowledge of the game, I simply can’t wait to finally jump into fleet ops, something until now I’ve been too scared to get into seriously.
And fellow Freshman Morgaine L’Faye who was even more thrilled:
I never thought I’d be sad to see a war dec go away, but at least we have the next 24 hours to watch Fear give the war-targets the ass-whooping they need. I just hope I can get in on that fleet!
During wars, the Ally system as well as independent war-declarations will be used to ensure that guests have the same lists of targets as members, and E-UNI members will be restricted to the normal Rules of Engagement at other times (NRDS in LoSec, NBSI in Null).
If you or someone you know are interested in participating in the Guest FC program, please contact Kelduum Revaan for details.
