Mifune SwordGod is a veteran of Eve Online and many other MMORPGs, a nullsec player, Eve Online streamer and youtuber. He first came to eve in 2016. and has spent almost his whole life in nullsec. Between FCing and Streaming, he has been known to be the Jar Jar Binks of EVE.
He’s spent most of his time mindlessly wanting to take every fight he can find, win or lose, He has lost hecates (HE-COT-TEY do not argue with me ) galore in search of Valhalla. He has streamed the entire M2-XFE fight, including the infamous 30 minute power nap, that turned into a 10 hour sleeping session, missing 16 phone calls, and 100 discord messages during downtime. For most of his eve day to day activities, he has been a PvP pilot, active miner, and destroyer of comms. Currently spending his time within Ascendance, working as a pencil pushing recruiter and FC.
He is currently the tech and co-host to Imperium News Network’s Theta Thursday. He also currently makes content on Youtube for various Goonswarm fights, and was the camera man for larger fights during the WWB war.
In his real life, Mifune SwordGod is the persona of Robert Knorr, a 21 year old College student in the US, studying IT Solutions as well as side lessons in video editing. In his career he currently works as a bartender at a local brewery, although in the past his previous major was Music Ed, and was a student teacher for a middle school choir. Some interesting things in his life was to be apart of his states Honors Choir and All state performances. He was also in his highschools theatre class and actor within 6 musical productions, and writing his own screenplay that was performed in front of the whole school (yes it was bad, but a funny bad). Although he loves music of all kinds he gave up singing, finding more passion in his love of coding and computers. A passion he learned from his father.
MY EVE ONLINE STORY
I am an eve player of lineage, oddly enough my gaming journey started right off the bat playing WoW with my father. At the time he had been playing a mix of WoW and Eve. By the time I was 15, able to understand the complexities, he got me to join him in ProviBloc. I was apart of a small eve family, that to this day I still talk to them constantly. I was into scouting and very interested in military structure, as IRL military was always a crabshoot of mine since I was a kid, sadly medical issues prevented this. I digress though. As I started to get more interested I had stumbled upon the video of the Goon V TEST fountain war, and to me, Goonswarm seemed the badass grandma of the game. Provibloc introduced me to the game, but Goonswarm has been my home for near 6 years. I remember when I first joined goons, a squeker and master sperger along with Mike Flood, the other youngen in Karmafleet. Being in highschool took a toll in how much I was able to game, so taking a years break from the game to focus on IRL I went.
A year and a half later I returned to find my old eve family residing in the LAWN alliance, so following my father and eve family again I joined them in LAWN. I can’t lie, I caused trouble, a loudmouthed 17 year old kid who thought he knew everything, eventually my loudmouth landed me in a position of needing to leave. So I went back to goon proper with my Theta friends. Here I have stayed for almost 3 years. It was around this time the war started to begin, and as far as Twitch content goes, the meta show couldn’t be the only place for news reporting. So I joined the INN team, using my many retired scouting alts as camera men, placing them in areas of conflict to stream all the large fights of WWB2. Also around this time, Dawn had approached me with the idea of bringing the sperg of Theta to the big screen, and BOOM theta Thursday was born.
** My Areas of Expertise**
My area in eve has always been a little dabble in all things, Primarily in nullsec PvP. Proficient in subcap FCing and a dabble in caps here and there. I have lived in a wormhole and done wormhole work here and there, but by no means an expert. When it comes to faction warfare, I’m almost clueless as to the meta, but we all know how much we beg for CCP to fix FW.
As well I am well versed in media etiquette for twitch and YouTube, working as an eve partner since its inception, working to create good content for people to watch and enjoy outside of the game. As you will see later in my campaign notes, I want to work to improve this area of the game, as we have seen eve only peak at 6k concurrent viewers at its highest. Just like our twitch viewers, my views may be limited to only certain aspects of the game, but I am always willing to learn new things every day, and listen to the average players thoughts.
WHY ARE YOU APPLYING FOR CSM?
I have been in love with eve since the day I started playing. I have wanted to run for CSM for a long time now, and with the death of eve very well likely, I want to make the beautiful game we all enjoy. Really have that dream of EVE Forever. #MakeEveGreatAgain
