Every month, the Academy staff works to compile the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did as a fleet in May.
This first graph depicts the number of applications that the fleet has received each month this year. The month of May saw nine applications with one from a returning member, equal to February, which is the highest month so far this year.
The following chart shows how our new members found us, according to their application:
This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of May. The fleet saw four graduates during the month, slightly increasing this year’s graduate percentage slightly from 57% to 58%. This is down from the overall graduation rate of 71% in 2020. Given that this time of year becomes particularly busy for players, it is unsurprising and is highly likely to shift further as we get deeper into 2021.
These new recruits are the lifeblood of our community. Without them, it becomes difficult to keep our ships fully crewed and even more difficult to grow the fleet. If you’d like to help us recruit more members and grow our fleet, you can join the Publicity Team using this form.
