How To Successfully Apply for WC-EN Auth Groups
What Are Auth Groups?
Auth Groups help Winter Coalition organizing their members into specialized groups and dedicated channels (e.g. on Discord). There are groups anyone can join like “SIG Other Games” or channels for RL events (e.g. EVE Vegas). The majority of groups a member can apply for are restricted groups.
Members can access available groups via the Winter Coalition Auth website. If you are properly registered on Auth, just click on “Groups” in the menu. Usually groups state the requirements to join in their description. If you are unsure what stated requirements involve, ask your CEO to clarify! If you happen to be a CEO and do not know that either, contact an Alliance Exec!
Capital Ship Groups
In order to join a Coalition fleet in a capital ship (or cap) there are certain requirements that need to be met:
- Registration: Your characters need to be properly registered on all SEAT and Auth platforms. This is necessary for everyone’s security and verification of necessary skills and cap ownership.
- Skills: As mentioned above, your character needs to meet certain skill requirements. There are skill plans available and your CEO can provide them to you. If you are a CEO and do not have access to these skill plans, contact an Alliance Exec. Skill requirements are not negotiable and will be checked prior to acceptance into the group.
- Cap Ownership: In order to join a Cap Group you need to own the minimum number of ships required. Usually this is stated in the description of the group. Certain groups require you to own more than one ship. This is true for the “Supercaps” group for example. (In this example you should get into the necessary “Faxes” group before applying for the “Supercaps” group!) Cap ownership and availablitiy of all required fittings will be checked before you get accepted. Make sure it’s in your hangar!
- Gameplay Knowledge: Before you apply to a Cap Group you shoud feel comfortable piloting one and multiboxing one (see “5) Alts:”). After training into the required skills, buying and fitting your cap, make sure you understand all the modules properly and spend some time on the Test Server until you feel comfortable piloting it. Ask your CEO for guidance or keep your eyes open for Training Fleets.
- Alts: In the majority of cases, caps are only called for on alts. This means that you will pretty much never fly a cap in a Coalition Fleet on your main subcap character.
Once all your preparations are completed, contact your CEO and get him to give you his/her preliminary approval. (For CEOs this means that it is your job to make sure that the pilot in question fulfills all the above mentioned requirements to the best of your knowledge.)
The next step is clicking the “Request” button next to the Group you want to apply for. CEOs should now contact an Exec. CEOs need to inform an Exec about the application and vouch for the pilot applying.
If you fail to follow one or more of the above mentioned instructions, expect to be declined. Sometimes you will receive an explaination but this isn’t always the case.
Winter Coalition is ran by a hierarchy that comes with its chain of command. The main groups of relevance here are the following groups: “Fraternity CEOs”, “Corporation Leadership” and “Alliance Execs”.
If you are the CEO of a Corporation within Winter Coalition you should apply for this group and you can expect to be accepted once your status is confirmed. It goes without saying that this requires your CEO character to be registered on SEAT and Auth! In addition, Corp CEOs can request that Corp Directors be accepted into this group as well. After being accepted as a CEO, contact an Exec and tell your director(s) to apply as well. Keep the number of directors within reason!
If you are a Fraternity CEO, please request membership of this Group in addition to the “Corporation Leadership” group!
Alliance Execs are If you are appointed Alliance Exec, apply to join this group. In order to be accepted you need to have at least one character in the Alliance’s Exec Corp.
There are currently two FC Groups: “Skirmish FC” and “Junior FC”.
This rank is for inexperienced and new FCs. This is usually the first FC group you should apply to. If you want to get accepted into this group you should have a basic idea about FC’ing and inform your CEO about your desire to become an FC. CEOs should then contact Execs and/or Military leadership with a recommendation for the person applying.
Usually you should spend some time as a Junior FC before applying to Skirmish FC. Military leadership will usually approve your raise in rank when they think that you’re ready for more responsibility like running a Standing Fleet, FCing strategic timers, etc.
Special Groups & Hidden Groups
Special Groups and some Hidden Groups for IT related groups, logistics or translators are usually handled by the people in charge of these projects and divisions. For most of these groups you need a personal invitation in order to get accepted. If you see a Group in this list you feel you could contribute to, contact your CEO about it and he/she should then inform an Exec or the person in charge of the group.
