Inquiry: The Fleet and Support Skills

Author

I have limited experience with the new fleet system and fleet support skills (boosting), and have a few questions:

  • Are the leadership/command skills and commander positions in a fleet associated? For example, do you need to be a wing commander in order to gain the bonuses from the Wing Command skill on down towards boosting, etcetera?
  • To provide command burst benefits to members of the fleet, are you required to be a subunit commander or is it possible to designate multiple boosters within a squadron?
  • For clarification, according to the patch notes the new fleet system has no limit on squadron size beside the 256 size restriction to members in a fleet, so theoretically it's possible for there to be 230+ squadrons dispersed among 25 wings each with just a single member/commander and the fleet commander? Not that that would make much sense, I just want a grasp on the full scope of potential presented by the new system.

My thanks in advance to those whom took the time to read and respond to this inquiry.

Used to be, you can have a infinite amount of members, or basically, but for example, wingcomander 3 will allow you to drop your boosts to three people below you. BUT if you have 4 guys and your wing command 3, no one gets it at all.

Not quite, but, I'm not asking how it used to be. I'm looking for more information on how it is, now.

Would appreciate learning from FCs with recent experience and knowledge.

No you do not require any position in fleet to boost, you just need boost ship and boost module and charge.

Also yes there can be multiple boosters as long as they are boosting diffrent things, if 2 are boosting same thing (shield resist) the one with better boost will apply boost, so boosts are not stacable.

And yes you can have 255 wings with 255 squads, or you can have 1 squad 1 wing 1 fleet and put 256 ppl in it, possbilitys are endles and you form them as your fle
