Returning player - 115mSP Combat Pilot - Not sure if looking for a Corp(?)

Hi all,

A little about me before I fire off some questions.

I’ve been back in the game for around 2 months or so and am keen to ‘kick-on’ my returning experience as I’ already falling back into traps that took me out of the game 5/6 times before.

Ultimately I’ve returned to the game to PvP and the objective at the time was for solo PvP. I’ve been actively posting on the forums around riskier but high rewarding ISK making exersizes to fund PvP. As I’ve been out of the game a long time and was never that good at PvP I know I need lots of ISK.

Currently I’m reviewing possible locations in lowsec to look at moving to a L5 mission base accompanied with LS ratting and PvP hunting.

My previous experiences in the game including living in WH space and being part of the Agony Unleashed corporation… the conclusion from both is that if I’m not doing my own thing I know how to follow instructions/orders.

I have little to no interest in leading anyone as I have enough of that at work (I’m a reasonably successful 45 year old). I’m happy to be led into combat or to PvE.

I’ve two Combat pilots.
Barrak here is 120m SP of which around 115 is PvP. He is a carebear God (kinda) examples being Level 5 Marauder, L4 spec all missiles. etc. He also has high skills in Ewar and can Logi.

The other is a 100m SP with around 90m pure combat. Can pilot and weaponise a Carrier and Dread.

I’ve been nosing around the forums (a sure sign of falling away from EvE again) but found the recruitment thread really interesting… particularly the 0.0 corporations, which is something I’ve not done and, historically, dismissed out of hand though I can not recall why…

QUESTIONS:

  1. Whats the difference between SOV and 0.0? and, once explained, should I care?
  2. Do most substantial corporations offer ship service for PvP and PvE? (I ask, not because I’m selfish but, because I don’t want to spend weeks moving gear to 0.0 only to find I don’t like it).
  3. Is clone jumping and simply heading out to 0.0 and option?
  4. How do I make ISK in 0.0? (I’m currently looking at L5 missions in low). No offence to anyone but I’m not a miner.
  5. How do I get the gear/drop/ISK out?
  6. Whats the risk to any assets I have in 0.0?
  7. Should I be more interested in the Alliance than the Corp or both?

Regards

Barrak

I’ve sent you an in game mail answering some of your questions hit me up on discord/in game if you wanna talk more.

Hiya there mate, if you thinking of coming to null sec we would be happy to have you.

  5. Our corp/alliance offers Jump Freight service and have Buyback program.

Hi Barrak!

You may be interested in giving Guns-R-Us Toy Company a go. We are an independent NullSec Corp based in Pure Blind who hold our own sov as part of Weapons of Mass Production.

I note most of your questions have been answered above, but perhaps I may offer a customised response in relation to Guns.

  • We offer ships for sale already fitted for basically any purpose you may need as well as a local market for any extra modules
  • We have a clone bay out here so yes, you can just set home and come out and just get started. Plenty of ratting ships are available for you to get stuck into the anoms. Its doing this that would make the most of your isk.
  • We have a good jump freighter service up and running, I personally offer a free first jump to people just joining to get their stuff out to our home system. We are 3 jumps to HS and just 12 to Jita.
  • We have no required assets other than at least 1 StatOp Doctrine Fleet ship for when a StratOp is called. We are pretty flexible here, we have Vigils for 3 day old NewBros all the way up to our HACs and BCs. We have highly recommended Standing Fleet ships, also available on contract
  • We are a growing corp and executor of the alliance with some other small groups who help generate content. It can get quite busy as we are on a pipe to deeper null, so standing fleet is often rescuing a miner or chasing roamers out of pocket.

Feel free to check out our ad and hopefully we get a chance to talk soon! :slight_smile:

Hi Barrak,

I wont answer your questions since someone already have done that.

But in return i can give you some advice.

  • Even though you are high skilled you lack experience so if i where you i would start small and in time start using bigger ships to keep your isk losses to the minimum or atleast as low as possible.

  • Bigger ships doesnt mean you are a better pilot, small ships can kill a bigger ship without any problem. It might be a bit harder and take probably longer time but the result nevertheless will be the same

  • Focus into one race and dont start cross train into different races. I know that when you are part of the bigger sov entities they do have doctrine ships for their fleets and its nice to be able to fly said ships but it will just take to much time.

  • Keep your game simple and dont burn yourselv out with a lot of tasks, just pve when you can and pvp when there is a fleet up :slight_smile:

the list can be quite long so leave this for now.

In terms of recruitment Mass can offer you both big fights and small/midsize pvp.

We are part of pandemic horde alliance which is one of the bigger players in the game where you can take part in regular sov warfare and I am also responsible for our Thera wing which will focus in small/midsize pvp.

And of course as an alliance we have enough space where you can rat/mine/build to fund your pvp with an alt in the background.

if you want to hear more or talk to us just join our discord

and to end this good luck finding a home

All,

Thank you for your replies and in game messages. Tons of thinking/reading to do.

@Primeryissecondary
Thanks for the advice.

I agree with everything. The talk around big guns was more from a PvE perspective. ie dreads for C5’s (when I was there) and Carriers to support Tengus’ etc. Marauders L4’s.

Certainly at this stage and the foreseeable future I wouldn’t dream of shipping into a Capital.

In my past life I was a Frigate PvP’er and want to shift into Cruisers. Anything beyond that is just fantasy at the present.

I’m already spec’d into ‘most’ sub Cap ships aside from the new ranges introduced over the last 4/5 years most of which are the ‘command variants’.

Most of my specs were designed to live in WH space and run C5’s and before that L4s… but that was back in the day. However, please no hating at this point, I always loved ECM which is where Barraks skillset exanded in to.

My Bio in game reads “Just because you can fly the ship, it doesn’t mean you can actually fly the ship”. So I’m fully with your overiding message.

Your last point rings true… I just want to do somethings new. Running L4’s was an old requirement back in the day. Nowadays my skill set is far strong and I want to be able to use it.

In respect of spreading myself thin. Well over half of my skills are level 5’s (mainly ships). If I go in I tend to go ‘all in’.

I’m exchanging mails with Shone in game.

@Glibbs
Thanks for the message. I’ll be sure to check out the recruitment thread.

@youngpuke2
Not late. Still undecided at this stage.

thanks.,

  1. Sov null vs null is the difference between fighting hellcamps on gates vs npcs that are pretty aggressive. The 2 have benefits but in doc you are mandated to act one way or the other.

  2. Yes.

  3. Yes.

  4. That’s pretty good isk with the right equipment. But outside of anoms and DED site not a lot unless you do low sec incursions with minimum 15 people.

  5. Lots of ways not all disclosed here.

  6. If it’s a player’s station you are looking at loss (and as of late also ransom). If it’s npc you can’t tether but it won’t go away either.

  7. Depends on the environment. Higher alliance brass is sometimes nauseating to talk to unless the group is very tight not and fun to be around. Being involved in the alliance is good for goals where as Corp is good for learning a growth.

My group lives in low sec. We do small gang pvp. Occasionally we do big fleet fights. Solo PvP in the area is abundant. Its a target rich environment and easy to get into. Come on by and ask.

Come and have a chat with us brother

Are you still looking, I can pm you in game if you’re interested.
