So i really think the fleet finder option is a great addition to the game, but please make it at least possible for the fc to give him the option to hide the location of the fleet, or remove the location all together, i mean spies don't even have to move/be part of hostile fleets anymore to give out intel on these fleets.

I'll do you one better: You will be able to not only hide your location AND fleetsize.

We want to do another iteration on the fleetfinder but it is a matter of prioritization whether it will be done in this release.

Gathering feedback now though is very useful and gives us an idea of how desirable this feature is :)

Nice. Less fleet spam and random x'ing at logon; I like it. Aforementioned options to hide the location and count are a must.

Might want to add a couple more stock PVP activities (e.g. PVP - Roaming and PVP - Home Defense or somesuch). Would be nice to be able to set destination from the location field.

Look forward to using this.

New fleetfinder is awesome. The new functionality is just outstanding.

Click on the question mark icon. you will find it betwen "wallet" and "channels" icons.

About fleet finder: PURE AWESOMENESS! Very Happy
Could you also add the avalability option for "Alliance and friends" (alliance -> relationship -> frieds)? It will make it easier to pick up people from pet/friend alliances! 10x!

This feature rules, it RULES please include it soon. I have not heard one negative discussed about it other then needing to hide size/location and you know just how much goons love to complain about stuff.

Nice idea but give the fleet commander the ability to

- choose who can see the fleet and join it (corp/alliance/global/militia)
- hide the location and fleet size
- remove the fleet from the listings altogether.

This will allow 0.0 alliance who are concerned about security the flexibility to keeps their fleets more secure by hiding them altogether and using the traditional methods to reinvite DCs and stragglers but at the same time allowing new players and FW players to open up their fleets to players who would not normally be able to get involved.

How about trying it before commenting? You can do that already.
