Hello Confederation members,

Today, April 4th, 2015 marks a very exciting day in the history of ConFed. We have some exciting things to share with all of you regarding our United Military Command. So please read and enjoy!

Since near the Clans beginning, the United Military Command Branch has used a permanent ship system to organize it's members and immerse them into a unique one of a kind role play experience. The Clans largest event “Ship Wars” was also held on a regular basis. Each ship is under the command of a Captain who is responsible for the crew beneath him. The ships use a progressive rank structure that members can strive to climb. As you climb the ranks you will earn respect, your word will carry more weight when it comes to clan discussion, and you will be able to take on a more responsible role within the clan if you so choose.

ConFed halted it's use of the permanent ship system when the transition from SCBW to SC2 caused us to lose a large amount of members, disrupting the Chain of Command.

Over the course of the last few years, ConFed has moved mountains. We've grown greatly in member count, events are regularly hosted, and member feedback has been very positive.

It is with great pleasure to announce that as of Saturday, April 4th 2015, The Confederation is relaunching 4 brand new permanent ships and we are returning to the United Military Command structure that the clan was based upon. You can see our new Ships on our Rosters page here. Be sure to click on them to read their stories.

There is a lot of information to cover, so lets clear up some of the most basic questions and concerns.

How were the Ships created?
Each ship was created from scratch by it's Captain. We had all of our Captains come up with a ship name, it's class, weapons, defenses, and lore.

How were members selected for each ship?
Members were randomly distributed to each ship while trying to keep a balance between rank and leagues.

How are new members placed on ships?
When a new Cadet meet's their requirements to become an official member (Read through the Academy and post on the Introduce yourself here thread), they will be assigned a ship with the least amount of people and promoted to Private.

I don't like my Ship, what do I do?
We've created a forum for each ship on our website. Inside each ship forum you'll find a thread that says “Request a transfer to this ship” with a format on how to word your request. The Captain will ask the Admiral of their Fleet for approval. Keep in mind that not all ship transfer requests will be honored.

Are these ships permanently stationed forever?
No. Each time a new Captain is promoted the new Captain will have the option to keep the current Ship in service and carry on it's legacy, OR, the Captain may retire that Ship and come up with their own brand new Ship with it's own story and lore.

If a Ship is retired it will be put onto a Ship page on our website that will act as a time line. So years from now when we look back, The Confederation should have an entire history of Ships, their Captains, and crew.

Just think, you could have your own ship that will be forever engraved in the history of The Confederation. Start your climb to Captain today!

How do the ranks within the ship work?
Each ship has it's own progressive rank structure; Private thru Vice Admiral (Vice Admiral's are Captain's who have reached JCOS level). Each rank has it's own different set of requirements, as you meet each requirement you may get promoted. Be sure to report to a Captain+ to see when you may be promoted. (Hint: You can also check your last promotion date on your website profile!)

Once you reach Rank: Master Sergeant you may apply to become an officer through our Officer Training Program on the forums where you will learn how to host events, recruit, and more!

If you want to learn more about the clans ranking structure, go here!

The pictures for the ships say “Classified”, why?
Currently, each ship picture is grayed out and says “Classified”. We plan on declassifying each ship over the course of the next month. We will announce when each one has been declassified. So check in on the news to see when each one is available for viewing!

Returning to the use of ships is an exciting new change for ConFed. We will use these ships to organize our members and host events in ways you haven't seen. The Clans biggest Event “Ship Wars” will be something you want to compete in. Our Captains will guide our Ships and their crew into glorious battle to decide which Ship has the best crew.

Over the last few years we've seen increased recruiting, more regular events, clan wars, and a huge gain in general activity. With the new expansion Legacy of The Void on the horizon, there is no better time to be a member of The Confederation than right now. Stay tuned to our news for exciting information regarding Ships.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact any officer who is online in our community channel. You may also use the “Contact Us” at the top of our website. Or you may reply directly to this thread.

Special thanks to the members who put in their hard work to make this happen;
Vice President Remo
Domestic Advisor NeonFire
Admiral Fleet 1 ZZZ
Admiral Fleet 2 Doadrift
Vice Admiral JDman
Vice Admiral Burn
Captain Karnage
Captain Darwin

Thank you, and smooth sailing everyone!
President CrunChy

Strength, Pride, Unity!
