Fleets are groups of ships used by players to capture resource deposites and battle other players. Fleets can be viewed, edited, named, repaired or scuttled in the dock. Each fleet has a capacity of 5 spaces for ships, and a maximum of 10 fleets can be created.
The flagship is the first ship in your fleet, and the one that will be shown on enemy players maps. A popular tactic amongst players is to have a weak ship as their flagship to trick enemies into attacking them, only to have the rest of their fleet significantly more powerful.
