  1. @Grieve: If you happen to get to empire tomorrow, I need a deadspace or faction


    No worries if you can't get it, ill be fine with what I have!

    1. Simone


      Nevermind Grieve, the Keepstar op bumped mine. 

    2. Grieve


      Cool. Also, thanks for noting the Op change. You gave me enough notice that I could get my Machariel DST'd down during AUTZ.

  2. Grieve! Thanks for your help scouting tonight :)

    1. Grieve


      My eyes are yours!



  3. Can we get the parrot from the BoG forums on this site??

      You have no idea how disappointed I am. 

    3. Ashin


      I didn't even know that was a parrot for the longest time.. seemed like random green giggly-dude or something.

  4. Hi Frank! Good luck with your new baby, you're a braver man than I haha. Can you give us some more info on what ships you can fly and what fleet experience you have? I had no sov null experience when I started with SOHCO six months ago, so lack of experience won't necessarily hold you back. I did ask many dumb questions during that time, so be prepared to ask questions you'll laugh about in retrospect haha!
  5. Cool, a fellow punk fan! Based on your age, I'm guessing we both spent our formative years listening to Rancid, NoFX, etc.? Related, I'm going to my first Me First and the Gimme Gimmes concert in April, 20 years late and super excited haha. Hope to talk to you in game soon! Haha poor Oshri, we did jump those canes like a pack of rabid dogs though
  6. Hi man! I'm going to start by asking the obvious question - what is a fist tickler and why did you choose to name yourself that? Related, is that your Eve character's name as well?
  7. You're definitely not alone in having a tough time finding a corp (or a guild in any MMO really). I'm convinced that it mostly comes down to luck and willingness to make some modest compromises in what you want out of the game. On stability: We're about as stable as you can get in Eve in terms of players and organization. But that can only get you so far. It's still entirely possible, if unlikely, for NC/PL to decide tomorrow that they want to expand their renter empire into Branch. If that ever happens, well, there goes our secure little corner of the North!
  8. Hi Nightjar, it sounds like you would fit right in with us! Look forward to flying with you. I can definitely see how ratting in provi could be painful. In fact, we've been doing our best to make it painful once or twice a week haha. You're down with a good drunk roam, that's excellent news! I have to ask what your drink of choice would be. Contrary to our corp's ticker, we're not down with the southern comfort, so choose your answer carefully...😁
  9. Wooooo congratulations Oshri!
  10. Hey man, looking forward to flying with you! Don't listen to Ashin, he's just mad he had to fly home 30 jumps last night. It's not our fault you didn't die gloriously to that Cerb!
  11. Continuing the job related posts - wooooooooooo I got an unofficial promotion offer at current job. Official may take a week or two, but more or less guarenteed at this point. 

    1. Ashin


      Congratulations!  I'm sure it was well earned.

    2. Kytn


      Nice, congrats dude :)

  12. Wooooo I saw someone on reddit mentioning filing a petition to get skill points for periods with a subscription but no training. I put in a ticket, and now I'm got 4 mil unallocated skill points on Simone!

      @Ashin or anyone else who might see this:


      I'm on the fence about how to use these skill points. I spent about a third of them already finishing off Caldari Cruiser V. I could realistically get into the new alliance Nidhoggur fit (minus fighters 5, that seems unnecessary after reading Capri's post) by using a mix of the remaining unallocated skill points and six skill injectors. I'd be out of pocket roughly 7-8 billion for the books, injectors, and the fitted carrier, but I'd have a carrier!  Couple questions: can I use the alliance fit rigs for PvE too and just swap the mods around? I'm going to need to rat back some of that isk! Second question, would I be better off using the unallocated skills to improve my skills more generally? If I don't go with the carrier option, I'm going train most of the command burst skills to IV, Command dessies IV. Prop jamming V, Graviton Physics IV, and HICs IV. 

  13. I couldn't fly a whole lot when I first came out. The fact that you have some missile skills and caldari cruiser V is good, you're well ahead of me when I came out to Branch in terms of being able to contribute DPS in our shield doctrines. The EWAR options can be really fun. I got on a Dread kill in a Maalus on my very first null sec coalition fight. But like Ashin said, you do end up training everything. There's some painful training that you really need to do if you're fitting skills aren't up to snuff. Most of our serious doctrine loadouts have tight fitting requirements. Four months later I can fly probably 2/3rds of our doctrine ships, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't take skill injector shortcuts.
  14. o/ Dmitri, I look forward to flying with you! I've got a pop quiz related to Hotsync's PVP roam question. Say your novice FC gets the fleet trapped in a choke point and there's a 50 man Provi gang on the other side of your only gate out. Do you: A) Die gloriously with your compatriots. B) Peace out/safe log C) Announce yourself as a Provi spy D) Lead a mutiny, headshot FC
  15. I'm out for blood after some very fun but kill free Friday roams :mad:. Watch for pings Sunday and Monday afternoon for a Shield Cruiser roam to Fade and/or a Branch gate camp. Not setting anything in stone yet because there's a strong chance I'll be too hungover to FC tomorrow.
