I have a question about what I am doing wrong in fleet.

I am currently doing the following in fleet with three people.

1 Main (Wing Commander) Ldr V, Wing Command II, warfarelink spec. IV. Armored warfare V, Arm. War.specIII. ( WING BOOSTER )

2 Alt (Squad Commander) LDR IV. Armored war IV (SQUAD BOOSTER)

3 generic AMARR corp member


when 1 is wing booster, and 2 squad booster I seem to have less bonus in armor in 3 (4265*) shield and (7240*) Armor totals. Then when I am only boosting with wing booster (4456*) Shield (7760*) Armor.

* estimates


I have read stuff here and there and am not really able to point out what im doing wrong myself. Some help is appreciated with my scrambled eggs math.

I think you're preventing wing commander to boost.

Just make fleet with 1, make him squad commander, and join 2 and 3 as squad members.

Whose bonus are you checking? IIRC the squad commander receives his own bonuses but not those of the wing commander, the squad member should receive the highest of the two and the wing commander his own bonuses (using a typical hierarchy).

Kk. Unless u are using warfare links then there is no need to have more than 1 person giving bonuses. If u have less than 10 people u only need to have a squad commander, so put your main in this position to give bonses to all of your fleet. If at any point u do have more than 10 people in fleet, u need to put your main into the wing command position but u will require people with leadership 5 skill to be put into the squad commander positions to inherit the bounses from the wing commander.

Not true, they cascade down all the way.

Make sure the fleet is valid (green checkmarks all around).

Just a basic sanity check, are all three pilots undocked and in the same system? Is nobody of them in a pod? Are you seeing a green checkmark (instead of a red X) in all three fleet windows?
