 ===What Standing Fleet Is=== ===What Standing Fleet Is===
  
-Standing fleet is, as mentioned, an in-game lobby of sorts where Brave members meet to chat and discuss both in-game and out of game topics. Standing Fleet is also an EVE "​Fleet"​ this means it has some mechanics aimed at helping you fight, explore or make money with the help of others. The first and arguably most important function of Standing Fleet is system/area defence. Eve is a dangerous game and Brave space is no different, marauding gangs will often come through or to our space looking for good fights or to pick off isolated Brave members who may be ratting, mining etc... Standing Fleet acts as both a deterrent and an active force to stop and remove these gangs. Standing fleet also acts as a rally point for other fleets. Standing comms is often the first place that an FC announces their fleet and so it is a good place to stay in the loop about upcoming events and to ask what ships the FC would like etc.. Standing Fleet is <b>the</​b> ​place to find out about PVP and engage in it. As mentioned before, Standing serves a protective role, this means that if you are Ratting, Mining or in Brave space at all you should ​<b>always</​b> ​be in Standing Fleet unless you are in another fleet. This provides protection for you and also lets you hear of any fun fleets or events that are taking place. This isn't a requirement of Brave but is a strong recommendation in order to get the most out of Eve.+Standing fleet is, as mentioned, an in-game lobby of sorts where Brave members meet to chat and discuss both in-game and out of game topics.

-Thanks to the mechanics of Fleets in Eve it is possible for the entire fleet to warp straight to any other person in the fleet, this means if you get into trouble the entire force of Standing is able to warp directly to your local but if and <b>only</​b> ​if, you are actually in the fleet. To ask for help you should be on comms relaying intel to the rest of the fleet such as how many enemies you see and what ships they are in, you then need to give your own name (not "​I"​ or "​me"​) and type "xxx" ​in fleet. Assuming that Standing Fleet is able to deal with the attackers your next task is to stay alive long enough to be saved.+Thanks to the mechanics of Fleets in Eve it is possible for the entire fleet to warp straight to any other person in the fleet, this means if you get into trouble the entire force of Standing is able to warp directly to your local but if and **only** if, you are actually in the fleet.

 ===Responding to attackers=== ===Responding to attackers===
  
-Since Standing is a relaxed fleet you are not expected to wait around for enemies to appear, having said that if you are in Standing Fleet and nearby it really helps if you do respond, even in a frigate. Once the intel has been given and you see the <i>xxx</​i> ​in fleet you should undock and warp to the person who "​dropped the X'​s"​. If in doubt please ask on comms and someone will help you get in the right ship and get to the right place. During the fight and even the warp-in you should closely monitor the Local chat channel. If the player count rises significantly ("​spikes"​) then you should abort the rescue mission. Chances are that the enemy has a large fleet waiting to drop on Standing Fleet in which case it's much better to leave one miner to die than to lose 20.+Since Standing is a relaxed fleet you are not expected to wait around for enemies to appear, having said that if you are in Standing Fleet and nearby it really helps if you do respond, even in a frigate.
