Im a long time player of Eve looking for a reason to come back to the game. I quit the game maybe half a year or so ago due to the collapse of the corp/alliance I helped to build. I’m hesitant to come back to the game, but i keep up on updates and such which make me miss it, culminating in this post hoping someone will convince me to come back to join them. Ill start with what I would be looking for in a group, and then talk about what I could bring to the table. I know most recruiters don’t read this, but Ill preface this by saying that I have ZERO interest in joining a nullbloc, a large alliance, nomads, or an all mining group. Also, I know this is a bit of a text wall, but if you aren’t going to to read my post and deliver a real response then I wont give your post any consideration. Copy and paste messages or links to your website with a big flashing banner will not work.
I’ve had one goal since I started playing Eve in 2011, to TAKE space. Not to join an alliance with space, or rent space, or be given space by friends. I want to be a part of a group that has no territory, then goes on to actually fight for control of a system, and hold it through its own merits. Ive made this happen once or twice as a Director, but things usually fall apart shortly after with the CEO deciding to join a nullbloc or not being able to manage nullsec logistics and destroying his own group. What I usually look for is a smaller group with a similar mindset, and I’ve become good at helping smaller groups grow into something better, I thrive as a director or officer, but have no real interest in being the actual leader. I’m a Lieutenant, not a General, The strong right hand rather than the Head, but if the group is right Ill work my ass off to help them prosper, and will manage whatever responsibility is needed to make that happen. I value self sufficiency, and prefer Corps who have the same mindset, willing to buckle down and work for their things when necessary. Milestones are important to me, as well as to the growth of new groups, be it hitting a certain PvP fleet size, Mining a set amount of Ore, or building our first capital ship.
TLDR: I want to make something. Not join the finished product. Show me a competent CEO with drive and charisma and Ill help you build a corp that can achieve any goal you set for it.
To start, as I mentioned I want to come back, I havent logged back in as of yet, and would likely start off as alpha, at least until Im reasonably certain I will stay in the game for a while.
-I am EST US TZ and over 21, and would expect my CEO to be over 21 as well. No offense kiddos.
-I have an unhealthy obsession with Shield and Missile ships, though I can fly anything. Just know that if you set up a kitchen sink fleet you can expect me to show up in something silver unless otherwise specified.
-I have about 58 Million SP. I can fly a lot of ships, up to and including capitals, though I have not actually flown one before since i tend to fly with newer corps in an effort to get them to the point where capitals are relevant.
-I have lived in all areas of space, and have good knowledge of life in all of them.
-I can do a bit of everything, I fight, I build, I mine. I have the patience and knowledge to train newer players, and am not afraid of newbros with good attitudes being in my fleet. I’m a good administrator and don’t mind doing the boring stuff that keeps a corp running. Ive run Industrial teams, Buyback and SRP Programs, Diplomatic talks, been multiple corps communications officer and am a competent recruiter. I have also FCd small to medium fleets, though I prefer objective based fleets over roams.
-Generally I am not a Pirate,as that playstyle doesnt fit my goals well. Also I’m pretty nice.
If you made it all the way to the end, thanks for the time. I wish you the best of luck in convincing me to come back to the game, and am about 50% sure that I’m rooting for you. I look forward to flying with you.
