I’d love to hear the stories of fellow pirates and undesirables, especially how you started off your career.
(long story alert)
Personally i started with ganking some industrials, i was in need of a way to make money in significant amounts, however nothing like mining or PvE since i just found it to be extremely boring in comparison to PvP.
It made me a few billions and i was, however my pirate career really took off when i was introduced by a friend to a pirate named after the famous brass colored android from star wars. i spoke with him a bit, did some suspect baiting together, and after a short while he asked if i would be willing to help him kill a high value PvE battleship.
Of course i was interested, so i asked him how we were gonna do it, and he said it was someone in his own corp. When i heard that i was hesitant, i didn’t like the idea of betraying people since i myself had been betrayed many times.
However once he mentioned the cut i’d get if we succeeded, i was convinced, 400m for a few minutes work ? i couldn’t resist that kind of money.
Little did i know those few minutes became the most intresting minutes in my EVE career, once we managed to get the shiny battleship pilot on grid he had 3 options, 1: eject from the ship, 2: pay a ransom, 3: be destroyed. We got lucky, because the pilot chose to eject from the ship, meaning we got the full value of the target we were after.
After that was done, since i didn’t screw it up, he offered me to join up with him, said he’d teach me how to to pull the same tricks he did to earn money and gather tears. hesitantly convinced i accepted his offer.
And man, it was the best thing ive ever done in EVE, he taught me all the tricks, social and gameplay wise, to steal, ransom, pillage, plunder and wreck the dreams of others, and im profiting from it ever since.
Ive ran with this person for quite some time, and it was one of the best times ive had with someone in this game, especially the times we awoxed an awoxer, and kicked some small merc group off the jita undock were amazing, and his pirate wisdom went a long way for me, with a 6b RNI kill from someone that i convinced to join with my broken Russian crowning my trophy wall.
so yea that’s my story, id love to hear those from other undesirables !
