Fleet Targets are now live!

Edit: you might need to restart (force close) the game to see them.
Targets reset every day at 5 AM UTC. Rewards need to be claimed prior to the reset.


We hope you will enjoy this new feature and are looking forward to your feedback smile

How long do we have to claim the rewards after the “reset” time.  For example, if or fleet reaches a target after I have gone to sleep will I have the opportunity to claim the rewards or will they have been lost to me?

Asked the same in the sticky because Nod wouldn’t answer in Discord lol.

Fleet targets, including the ability to claim them, reset each night at 0500 UTC. If you have unclaimed rewards, they’ll reset as well. Similar to your Daily Missions, you’ll want to claim your Fleet Targets before the global reset time.

We expect many of our players will knock out their Fleet Targets during the mid-day, and that some Fleet Members may pick up the slack for less active members. It may also encourage fleets to fill out their rosters with more members, and coordinate their activities throughout the day. We also included a participation tracker, so members may track who is contributing (and who is not).

One final note: Fleet members may not collect targets until they have been in a fleet for 24 hours. You cannot join a fleet and immediately collect their targets, to prevent the rapid joining and leaving of fleets to farm honor. You’ll need at least 24 hours to get the rewards smile

sounds like you’re referring strictly to 50 player fleets. my little fleet wouldn’t reach the final honor rewards by mid-week if given the chance. unless i decide to find a huge fleet to be a part of, these rewards are unattainable to someone like me. oh well, it’s like a 90,000 credit pull worth of honor anyway. no big loss there.

I have to add my agreement with concern over being forced to claim the rewards before the reset.  The first objectives seem easy to meet but the final ones will take the whole day for many if not most fleets.  I happen to be in the perfect time zone to catch the reset right before bed but many in the NDQ fleet are not so lucky.  It will discourage participation if many in the fleet are unable to claim the rewards that they work to complete.

I would also add that NDQ is considering expanding into a multi fleet community but these quests will likely work to discourage such a step since the ones who would move to the sister fleet would not be able to claim the extra quest rewards until the new fleet would add a large number of members.  Is there no way that the quest objectives could be scaled to the number of members in the fleet?  This would encourage participation while also making it manageable for every fleet.

I am hugely grateful for the new quests and I think they are a huge step forward in making Fleets feel beneficial.  I am sure you will work out some of the details over the next couple weeks.

Thank you DB for giving us more free stuff smile

“trading 2 West Coast players and a future 2nd round pick for 3 EU players.”


I foresee some cut chaff and merges going on.

I have to agree with the others that having to claim them all may be a challenge.

I’m in the Uk and if I go to bed at 10pm, it’s still anything between 2pm-4pm in the states. That means if most of my fleet mates are stateside it’d be a challenge.

Maybe this will mean fleets will be more TZ specific, I was thinking that it’d be good to join a Eurozone fleet but I really enjoy my current fleet which is about 20-30% Euro and the rest seem to be Stateside, at least those that actively partake in chat!

I rebooted the game, rebooted my phone, tried my work phone, and I see nothing for the fleet targets. What gives?

So the targets are not relative to the fleet size? This favors the mega fleets for sure. A fleet of 5 would need to run 160 ship battles each v. a fleet of 50 running only 16 each. Heck I’m not even sure the smaller fleets will get any rewards out of this. The real question is, why can’t the targets be proportional to the size of the fleet?

Hmm try again?
At the latest they should appear after the next reset.

5am UTC is 6am UK BST (British Summer Time).

My alarm is set for 6am every weekday for work so I guess I can set it 5 min earlier to give me the biggest possible time window for my Fleet to meet their targets.

I’m liking the Fleet hub and targets so far, great job!

One thing I would suggest though is that at the reset people get the rewards in a mail message similar to how the Arena rewards get sent out.

That way no one misses out due to timezones and we also still have to actively read the message and claim the rewards in order to get them.

Nod, could you please give some insight behind the reasoning regarding the need for players to claim the rewards manually before reset rather than a system like the Arena rewards?

Thanks

Surely the idea is to encourage the creation of strong fleets, and not “A Fleet of One” where you get the same rewards.

You could still set some minimum values and have it scale up from there. That would combat the army of one issues.

Sure they could, but why?  Do you think they’d rather have 100 fleets of 10 than 25 fleets of 40?

If people want to stay in small fleets with just a few close friends, that’s fine.  Your trade off is that you miss out on some rewards.

+1

We have players on four continents. As a big fleet, we’re not going to have trouble hitting any of these thresholds well before the reset, but mailed-out rewards would make life easier for a lot of our non-US players.
