Tumbleweeds
Hmmm, me thinks the independents are avoiding the site, lol, or at least this section. I guess most of the independent gathering and communicating is taking place on the RSI forums.

Yeah, I'm trying to direct some here, but independents being independents, I can barely even get the ones on here to take a look at this place.

Hopefully as we get closer to the date, more people will come here to pick up last minute crews or find ships to crew.

I think part of that is that is that it's way too early to be deciding on wingmen and crew members, at least by my view. I know that I'll almost certainly be needing a crew for my Retaliator for the assault phase of the op, but I'd rather wait till I have a feel of the people's personalities in the DFM and the early parts of the beta before I decide who I want with me.

If I still have spaces open a couple weeks before it goes down then I'll make a post here looking for people to fill spots.

Jonais.... >:(

You made me think there was some sort of affiliation you were starting that Lone Wolves could declare, indicating they are doing independent recon.

I got excited  ;D  But it was just a complaint about the sound of the wind blowing through this sub-forum...Now I'm sad.

Wait!  Couldn't we kick off discussion using exactly that as the premiss?  Just start a couple of threads specifically about tasks/roles that a Lone Wolf would excel at and invite them to do it?

Hey sounds good to me Talkyn! lol. I'll be in the same boat Jaustin. Hopefully I'll have a connie for the mission, but if not I'll have my lancer. Now that it's LTI I won't be upgrading it directly to Rear Admiral, but I might end up getting enough extra cash to buy one anyway. I'm still trying to figure out what my role will be for the OP. I'm thinking maybe scoop and shoot (pick up pods and then suppression fire). The large cargo hold on a lancer makes it good for that sort of thing.

Nice new thread :P

Would you consider renaming the title of this thread?  I'm assuming we can actually do that.

If you don't end up picking up a connie I've got one I don't plan on using that you could borrow for the op.

Ahem so tumbleweeds? o_O
So I'm Suoja from Finland (GTM +2) and will mostly be available for a few hours at time most of the days. I have an SH which I'm going to pilot, but I can crew any post at any ship that is willing to take me, in the European timezone. I've done huge amounts of flying around in WingCommanders I to III and FreeSpace 1 to 2.

Being overly social I'd most rather spent time within some group of ppl that can follow orders from the high command. I have not yet joined any of the corporations(guilds) that are out there since my starting location depends quite much from my IRL friends, what they'll decide to do when the time comes. That's a small group of 3 to 7 guys who mostly play together no matter what game it is.
Only exception being wow where I was part of 100 to 250 guys guilds in most cases with active groups being about 20 to 50 ppl at time. I don't mind taking orders, but I'm not very good leader myself (I tend to act by my gut instead of reason when faced with fast decisions).

Since we seem to have much more vessels than pilots /crew atm, I'd be more than willing to be on anyones ship performing duties that they seem necessary and bring on my SH when everything else is lost. I fully expect us all to die gloriously in a few generations during the OP so if you need a turret crew or fighter escort to do something absurdly risky or outright suicidal, count me in!

Hey, SuojaKerroin, that was a pretty good post, I'm going to split it into its own thread here on the LW and Indy board, since this thread was more about the lack of utilization of the board as a whole.

But then again, you guys could become an independent group of flyers for OPPF calling themselves Tumbleweeds! Haha, it'd be a funny story when people ask you where the name came from when you're flying in OPPF.

Oh, boy. Well I couldn't find the general independent thread floating about. So I introduced myself into the one that complained that nobody uses it ^^ But yes, by all means you're free to move my post into somewhere where it will be more useful and in context as well. In the Op we will tumble like the weeds anyways, so it's prolly not that much off :D

A "Tumbleweeds" group of rag tag freedom fighters would be pretty funny. Welcome to the group Suoja.

SuojaKerroin, I'll probably leave it there after all. But if you want to make a similar post on a new thread on the board yourself like that, that would be pretty handy.

Unless TEST (they are my buddies) decides to take part, I will gladly join the tumbleweeds in a sneaky aurora.

Hey, justin111111, do you know what the mood at TEST is about OPPF? I haven't sent them any messages yet, because I haven't seen any of the higher ups make an appearance on any of the OPPF threads yet. I don't approach any organizations that haven't made the first move yet.

I tell you to rename the thread and you accidentally create a new organization?

And I figured I didn't need to follow this thread!  "Tumbleweeds" just sounds so awesome.  We drift in, unnoticed, drift out.

Unfortunately no, I have set up the proper propaganda. They seem to be content to sit this one out or as one of them said "Go get one of their ships for us".

I do know however that a certain member of TEST going by the name of schrimpanzer is a member of operation trident. In the duration of Pitchfork, i will kill him on sight.

I had a bad feeling about most of TEST in regards to OPPF from lurking in some of their threads. I'm a bit jaded by their overall behavior in games like EVE, though, so I was hoping it was just my own bias that was coloring it.

I just hope they don't back the Dents "for the LULZ", because then that might actually make the Dents a problem for us. And possibly undermine this community event a little bit.

I have a Retaliator (bomber), a Super Horny (fighter), Cutlass (tow truck), Freelancer (cargo hauler), and will have a Mustang (hot rod?).  I can fly any of them in the op, depending on what's needed.

This is not the TEST from EVE, and we are in no way affiliated with them.

We let our members do as they please, up to and including a little friendly fighting over events like OP.

I keep hearing that, but then I've also been picking up a ton of inside jokes among members about EVE Test stuff. I haven't been able to figure out what the percent composition.

Hey, Shadowma, glad to see you are interested in teaming up with other independents. There's a Recon/Scout thread going on that you may be interested to see.

I started up my own org called Aces High when the orgs went live. It may not be called tumbleweeds, but it has the same atmosphere as we've developed in this thread :) So if you guys would like to come aboard I'd be happy to have you!

Its hidden affiliate.

Also, heres some ideas.
(its taken from my org site, just took out the name.)

To become a hub for freelancers.

As a hub, we will be able to post contracts, find team members for larger non-solo contracts, and grant the solo players any buffs that large fleets would have.
We would also try to have a market with cheap goods.

However, the idea grew. After talking with several other people, we decided that there would be 2 parts to this.
One part would be the HUB, with full access to any freelancers. (Note, if there are any corp/fleet buffs, you will get them too)
The other part would be the ranking system, where you would pay a 1% tax but gradually gain benefits over time.
details of rank system in manifesto.

The HUB
The HUB will be the centerpiece of the orginization. Everyone that is affiliated with this org will gain access to the basics.  If the game mechanics allow us, the hub will be comprised of mainly two parts.
1. Contracts zone
2. Market

The contract postings are exactly what it sounds like.  Here is where people post contracts that they make and/or find.  Think of it as basically a player made database for contracts.  Also, here is where you would find team members for larger contracts.

The market is also what it sounds like.  In our vision, the market will always try to keep the price as low as possible in order to provide goods at a reasonable price to everyone.  Here you will also be able to rent/purchase land (hopefully, if the game mechanics allows it) to set up a shop or trade zone.


Manifesto.
Hello, there. Even though we are a primarily contractor organization, we do give benefits to our members.
There will be a 1% tax. Please read the rest before you do anything else.

If the feature is possible, you will be able to choose in the rank program or not. If you opt out of the rank program, then you will not be charged tax.

As you do more and more contracts through this organization, you will gain access to higher ranks.

Rank 0: Required successful contracts 0
Access to vaults and such: N/A Opted out of program or new to fleet.

Rank 1: Required successful contracts 10 (Or 20 failed contracts)

Rank 2: Required successful contracts 50 (Or 100 failed contracts)
Access to vaults and such: Limited access to fuel, ammo and fleetbank (3 times withdraw limit)
Limited access to Fighter Vault

Rank 3: Required successful contracts 75 (Or 150 failed contracts)
Access to vaults and such: Full access to fuel, ammo and limited fleetbank (3 times rank 2)
Access to ship replacement program.
Limited access to Fighter and corvette vault

Rank 4: Required successful contracts 200 (or 400 failed contracts)
Access to vaults and such: Full access to fuel, ammo and limited fleetbank (4 times rank 3)
Access to ship replacement program
Limited access to fighter+ vault

Rank 5: Requires atleast 250 successful contracts finished and recommendation of Rank 5
Full access fuel, and ammo vault.
