I am thinking about dissolving my corporation and joining one already in progress. Get to know a corporation and its crew. I’d like to provide basic pvp security during pve activity, if that’s a job people are looking for.
I used to make drugs in low-sec. From 2015 - 2018 I used to sell slaves by the thousands, servicing the top 25 market hubs in New Eden, across every security status. That got boring, which is why I stopped, but I was proud of my corporation and still had drugs going on the side. Might still keep that going, just on the side.
Nothing really changed, because there was always option to use blockade runner. Hauling illegal stuff would be completely different activity without ships with cargo scanner immunity. But from moment they existed the activity stopped existing and became regular hauling.
I did some illegal hauling with alpha and it was fun, but also extremely hard - gates just cannot be used at all, there is no minigame where we could avoid facpo, they stop us automatically, so without cargo scan immunity ship it is all about scanning a wh chain and hauling it via there. Which is still much exciting anyway as the chain can collapse or there may be hunters lurking inside.
I join the big alliance fleets too but the hunt is way more fun than sitting waiting for an opponent to decide if they would rather risk their spaceships or lose their structure.
If you want to provide pvp support for pve the best things you can offer are logi or ewar if you actually want to keep the pve players alive. If you want to use them as bait to get kills/opportunities that is different.
Yeah, I’d say there’s definitely a job market for running PvP security during a corps PvE activities.
As for your own corp, just make an alt character CEO of your corp to keep it on the back burner, so to say… That way you’ll always have it ready and waiting when needed.
As for me, I’ve always considered myself an explorer, especially since that was the reason I joined Eve back in 2008 which I did for a lot of years. Course like a lot of others I first started mission running with Thukker Tribe which basically messed up my standings and in 2010, caused me to create and submit ‘The Plan’ to the community. But that’s a topic for another thread…
Anyway, over the past few years I’ve pretty much switched from doing exploration / mission running to doing more trade career. And as a side hobby I’ve gotten into collecting Apparel items. Currently my collection consists of 745 different male/female apparel items.
Other than that, I always keep this character subbed as Omega and training skills. That way, even if I take breaks and don’t log in for weeks or months at a time, my character is always ready to go when I do log in…
