Proposal: Dum, Dum, Dum, Dum Dum-Dum, Dum-Dum, Dum-Dum

Create a new institution “The Fleet”, which reads:

When specifying Directions to the Net, a Player may select an Institution the wish to Invade. When a player Influences the Fleet, they Influence that Institution instead of anyone else at the end of the next cycle. The Institution players select to Invade should be announced after they have Influenced it.

This allows player’s to purchase a guaranteed institution one cycle ahead.
Some may worry this is to similar to the Legion - however, this would trump marines, can only be used once per cycle, cannot be saved, and requires a player to pick their choice ahead of time.
Some may worry this is overpowered - however, it logically cannot be worth more than the most valuable other institution, requires a player to put their choice in ahead of time, and bids have not reached the point that institutions are unreachable by large portions of the player base.

Also shouldn’t it be “Dum, Dum, Dum, Dum Dum-Dum, Dum Dum-Dum”?

Doesn’t this let you influence unpowered institutions? (When an Unpowered Institution is resolved, no player influences it.) But then you still influence it either way. And if we patch that, this potentially a big pain because people might want to fix an institution, but then someone would be like “nooo I’m invading that institution. I’ll get it for free. if you edit it it unpowers and I’m screwed”

Really just seems broken to me.

That’s a good point, CoV against

That is a good point, but I don’t mind it.
