Hai Thar space friends and frienemies.
Im 38 yrs old, Serbia/Europe (altho i play at wierd times for my TZ, more on that below), employed and somewhat socially active (don’t judge). Generally, i’m in a very good place and probably shouldn’t play eve at all, however i’ve had cravings for eve for the last few months and as it look like, i relapsed. This is me giving it another go (trying to anyways).
Looking for nullsec corp/alliance. Not interested in anything else. HiSec i dislike, WH’s and LowSec i like to visit and do stuff there from time to time, but not to live in. I would PREFER NOT TO BE in drone regions as my prefered type of income is ratting and running DED sites, i do not mine (so far).
It’s nothing to write home about, but there you go.
“main alt” is ~32m SP
Last time i was playing i was part of GoTG and all in all, i had great time despite everything. I was in a smallish corp full with cool people, had great part of space to farm lots of isk in and there were abundent opportunities for pvp. At times 2 much I took part in some huge (“epic”) capital battles and also some super fun smaller roams that were run by some cool ppl and good fc’s (Erebus SilentKill comes to mind, and it kinnda saddens me to find out that he deleted his character and moved on from eve).
Would probably apply to some of the corps there (again) but in time of war they don’t recruit, plus, the coalition is nothing like it used to be. Yes, i know that they are pretty much disliked and in the constant state of war, and yes, i know that pretty much every larger entity would like to destroy them and it’s really not a good place for a returning player to be. But still, i’ve had some good time there and have good memories of it. Since the situation is like it is, they are not recruiting, area is in a chaos and i don’t have any old friends playing there anymore i think it might be a good time to move on from that idea.
Anyway. I’ve spent days researching, “catching up”, forums, reddit, twitch. Ingame also, checking regions, coalitions, alliances corps… pretty much everyone is recruiting but still i’m nowhere near deciding where to apply. So, as a part of trying to figure it out, i’m posting here.
Here is what i like to do and what are my interests, maybe there is compatible corp/group of people visiting this forums. Maybe you know a guy, who know’s a guy… and that guy knows a good corp for me
First off, the most important thing, and i can’t stress this enough, i’m looking for a group of people i would enjoy flying with/spending time with. And i am in no hurry to find “any” corp. Hence the detailed wall of text.
I’m a chilled/relaxed guy, love to joke around, chat up people on comms. Have a strong dislike for drama, negative people, energy vampires, toxic people of any kind…
I like to CRAB (few ishtars and a carrier, smashing havens and sanctums then running few escalations) while chatting and having laughs with people on comms. It is not JUST about making iskies, i kinnda enjoy that sh1t, it helps me unwind. Whenever i am playing i like to be on comms so it’s really important to me that i find a group that ‘fits’, people that like to chat and have fun - on comms. And also not affraid to undock their PvP ships to ‘shoo’ away unwanted visitors.
I like to do EXPLORATION. I do mostly relics, some data sites. I do this with my alt most of the time that has almost perfect covops/scanning skills. I’m constantly scanning new sigs especially near the crabbing area but sometimes i ‘go off’ and spend a day scanning down WH space. I bookmark stuff for corpmates/alliance/coalition and inform if i find interesting connections (be it hisec, lowsec or a shortcut to a target opportunity). Sometimes i just scan the new sig (wh) that popped up, check the activity, scan connections inside / check what’s up and then roll it. Sometimes i do this on my main also, but then i’m mostly looking for a ganking oportunities.
I like to PVP and blow stuff up. I prefer small/medium size roams. I enjoy interceptor fleets. Corm Fleets. Bombers. Cruisers. Gatecamps. You get the point (i hope).
I love to do all three things above, and not in a particular order, but it is a cycle. I can’t just crab. And i can’t just pvp. Can’t just explore. It has to be all 3.
I don’t like endless streams of red pens. I don’t mind them, but i just can’t and won’t deal with months of end of multiple red pens. Every. Single. Day. Then it stops being fun. Not only that, but it escalates from not being fun, to anoying chore, to PITA job, and, i already have a job… i like that job, and it actually pays.
I don’t mind campaigns/deployements tho. I kinnda love them. But i don’t like to move my assets here and forth all the time. I’m not nomadic type of guy.
I dislike “epic” cap battles altho i participate in them (red pens…). But being stuck in lag/tidi, getting dc’ed and then being unable to log in etc etc etc for hours on end is a torture to be honest. It was sorta fun first few times, but that’s it. But then again… if i’m stuck doing that, with people i like to hang out with (like, on non-fleet coms) having shits and giggles with a beer or … khm, it can be fun. As long as there are no dc’s…
As i said, i’m living in EUTZ, but due to work my ‘main’ play time is from 22:00 eve time to 02,03,04,05:00 … Depending what i’m doing and how much fun i’m having, and do i have some IRL plans that recquire me to get up earlier.
Sometimes i can be online in period from 06:00 to 12:00 but at that time im not interested in pvp (mostly, there can be exceptions) as RL can call for some action and i’m forced to make an abrupt end to my gaming activities.
If you think we can be a ‘fit’, hit me up. Bare in mind that all of my assets are in security wraps (carriers, ships for DED running, various PVP ships, all in all ~30bil worth of stuff) and that i’d be coming with few bills of iskies and would have to farm up for everything else.
I do like to use skill injectors if finances permit. Can pilot (Super) Carrier with t2 fighters/bombers. Have long term plans to become Dread/Titan pilot on main, Fax on alt.
I prefer not to fly logi unless i really, really have to.
Thanks for your time,
