As some of you may know, the 44th Fleet has been around a LONG time. What some of you may not know, is that the 44th Fleet was founded before the game even launched! In my interviews with people who were around back then and with some research help from Fleet Admiral Marcase we have determined that the official founding date of the fleet was on 2009-8-17, a full 4 months before the game launched. Not many people who were around then are still here (Cross being the only one I’m aware of) and many have moved on to real life and have retired from the Fleet we hold so dear. We have people like Admiral Latniumbar, Admiral Webster, Vice Admiral Intrepid, and others to thank for starting this awesome fleet.
All of this being said, the Fleet Officers and I have been planning a celebration of our fleet and I am pleased to announce that we will be holding a shindig of EPIC proportions on Risa to celebrate the Fleet’s 8th birthday! It will be an event full of games, prizes, and fun! Everyone who is in the 44th Main Fleet, 44th Delta Fleet, and the 44th Assault Squadron will be able to attend. Here are some details of the activities:
A simple footrace from the Dabo table to the top of the mountain on Risa. The winner of this race will get Lockbox Key x5! The rules are simple:
1. No speed boosting traits/gear allowed!
2. No sabotaging of other racers!
3. No Floaters!
Following these rules, how you get to the top is up to you! Vice Admiral Paradoxical will be waiting at the top to award the winner the prize!
A hoverboard race around the entirety of Risa! Enjoy the sights as you race your fellow Fleet Members around this route:
The rules are simple:
1. Must use a RENTED HOVERBOARD!
2. Must follow the route pictured!
One of the Fleet Officers will act as guide so you will know what path to take, however, please study this map and know your route!
There are 3 prizes for the top 3 finishers! They are Inspirational Leader, Helmsman, and Psychological Warfare. Winner gets to choose which one they want, 2nd place gets choice of the remaining 2, and third gets the last one.
This activity is a simple beauty pageant for your swimsuit! Show off your swimsuit! The fleet will vote on their 3 favorites (contestants will vote as well and can choose their own as one of their favorites) and the one with the most votes wins Lohlunat Favor x1000!
This one is a difficult one. You must fly a floater thru all of the windows in the huts located here:
This is a timed event and the 3 fastest times will win one of these prizes: Vicious, Firearms Specialist, and Ironsides. Fastest time get first choice, second fastest gets pick of remaining two, and third fastest gets last one.
Live Search for Soolin:
A live action run of everyone’s favorite forum contest! This will be a series of 5 searches, with Vice Admiral Paradoxical giving out the hints on where to find our wayward Fleet Admiral! Winners will win Your choice of Superior Tech Upgrade x10 and once you win once, you cannot win this contest again on Risa.
A fleet-wide raffle for everyone! Anyone can win and it is completely random. Vice Admiral Paradoxical will assign every member who comes to the shindig a series of random numbers from 1-100. Fleet Admiral Marcase will utilize the “roll dice” emote to randomly select a number. The fleet member with the matching number assigned to them will win a prize! Prizes will include Favors, Superior Tech Upgrades, and even A T6 Ship!
Didn’t win anything at all? No worries! There will also be a door prize of Lockbox Key x2 and Infinity Lockbox x2 as well as a special forum ribbon only available for coming to this event, just for coming and having fun!
When will all this take place? I’m glad you asked! This epic shindig will take place on 19 August. Now, to make sure the maximum amount of people can be there, there will be a poll at the end of this post with proposed times for this party. Select all times you can make it. The one with the most votes will be the time we shall hold it. The poll will stay up until 01 August, then we shall announce this shindig again on the August State of the Fleet with the time it will happen.
Thank you all for being a part of the very finest Fleet in Star Trek Online and I hope to see you at this shindig!
