Heya, I am hoping to return from a rather short break from EvE, but would like to ensure I have a home when I get back. Just to get rid of the recruiters who actually read this that are not what Im looking for, I will say first that I am not looking to join a null bloc, a mining only corp, or any corp whose recruiter on this forum merely posts a link to their post and expects me to look them up myself.
A bit about me, I have been playing since 2011, with a few breaks spread around, generally after corporation collapse or similar nonsense. I am US Timezone, and yes I am over 18/21 if it matters. I have an unhealthy preference for shields and missiles, so basically caldari. Mostly because when I started they were terrible and I was stubbornly determined to prove they were usable. That does not mean I limit myself to these ships, as I have amarr and gallente significantly trained as well and enjoy flying them, but if you ask me to bring my preferred ship to a kitchen sink fleet it will probably be silver. For the last threeish years I have been the director of a small corp/alliance and spent an exorbitant amount of effort keeping it alive despite the CEOs best efforts to kill it, so that was fun. I have lived in hisec, lowsec, nullsec and WHs for a short time. I am capable of flying Dreadnoughts and Carriers (Caldari is the only one trained, but I have the prereqs for gallente and Amarr when I get around to it), however I do not own a capital of my own at the moment and have not flown one despite having the skills since my previous corp really didn’t warrant the cost. Also, I am Alpha at the moment, as I just bought a house in real life and am quite broke, so I do not plan to go omega until my finances stabilize and/or a group comes along that is worthy of me cutting back on less important things than EvE like food and heat.
As for what I am looking for, it is rather specific. My goal for many years has been to be a part of a group that TAKES sov, which seems to be a rarity these days. My dream has always been to be a part of a group that builds itself up and takes control of a system without relying on blobs or isk, and grows through its own strength rather than that of whoevers dick theyre currently sucking. As such I have spent most of my time nurturing smaller corps to the point that they can take space the hard way, rather than renting, joining a bloc, or calling a hundred friends to help evict a 10 man corp. Unfortunately, they always seem to fail me, either by collapsing or deciding at the last minute to go the easy route and rent or join a bloc, or even gasp decide to live in hisec! I would also consider a Wormhole corp, but it has to satisfy the same conditions of having aspirations.
So heres what I need:
-Decent activity level, if I am going to do another startup I need to be confident you can help me reach my goal in a reasonable timeframe
-Dont be huge. Like I said I do not want to join a bloc, and would prefer a smaller corp that I can help grow to become stronger than one that is already massive. I want to play a part, not get lost in the crowd.
-Be English, duh
-I am EST US timezone, with a rather erratic schedule that generally sets my playtime up at night, so I would like a corp that will have people on in the same time as me.
-I am generally not a pirate, so the corp would need to be very well aligned to all my other goals to convince me
-I dont generally use alts, I know its eve, but shut up. I have one main character, if you tell me I need a dedicated miner or pvp pilot then just go away. I do have a few alts for various purposes such as scouting, hauling, etc, but they are generally low skilled and rarely used, you likely wont see me multiboxing
-I am a busy guy, like I said I just bought a house, have a girlfriend, a job, etc, so my playtime is limited, so I will need a corp that can accept that.
-Must have the eventual goal of taking sov through bloody combat. Renters or members of large sov holding alliances need not apply, and you wont convince me, I have friends in those kinds of corps if I change my mind, so dont bother to try
In exchange for my pickiness I can provide
-Years of experience in almost all aspects of the game, including PvP, PvE, Industry, Mining, FCing, corp management, etc. Though I dont claim to be the best at any of this, I do know a bit about almost everything
-willing to recruit (ya I know), and kind of good at it if I am motivated by a productive corp
-Patient with new people, and willing to help train newer pilots
-Future capital pilot when it becomes necessary
-a very sexy voice, and a chill guy to talk to
Sorry For the long post, I hope to get some good responses.
Will respond to messages on here as well as in game.
