  1. Last week
  2. Hi Wzok Oran/Jared - nice to meet you! We'd be glad to have you aboard/show you around the game a bit. You can really accelerate the Eve learning process by joining a group, getting involved in fleets, and asking questions. The game really does have a pretty brutal learning curve, but it rewards patience with moments you won't find in any other game. I've been playing off and on since 2012 (my steam says 3550 hours, but it's exaggerating slightly), and there are still whole sections of the game I don't know much about at all! I'll PM you a link to our Discord here in a minute. Let's pick a time this week to meet/chat and then we can send you an invite to the Corp. Look forward to talking/flying with you soon!
  3. Hello, My name is Jared and I seen your post on r/evejobs and would be interested in joining the corp if you would have me. I am pretty green to the game right now only have about 34 hours in it. I really like the game and think it would be much better if I had some people to teach me a little more. I really like ship combat and am interested in learning the ropes of PvP. Although I am new to EVE I am a very experienced MMO player having lots of hours in WOW, FFXIV, Destiny, Black Desert, GW2 and Star Citizen. I like to to jump on during the week for an hour or two and on the weekends I can play most of the day if I dont have anything going on. I am in the US EST tome zone 29 year old married with no kids. Please let me know if you need any more information from me and I look forward to speaking and hopefully playing with you soon. Thanks!
  4. Hello, nice to meet you! What type of cats you have? We've got two, a Siamese and a tortoise shell. Welping in a glorious fire is a lot of fun I've enjoyed being in a group that doesn't make killboard warriors out of you, just out to have a good time. What's your favorite frigate or destroyer class ship?

  6. Hey Tyrlis well met. I'm actually fairly new into the gun world. Besides some hunting when I was younger mostly just some plinking at gophers and targets. Local guy was selling a Kimber custom crimson carry II and I just couldn't resist. My pride and joy though working on the range time to make my marksmanship up to snuff for such a beauty. Pretty strictly coffee and maybe tea type drinks. Only a monster tea and lemonade has enough power to sway me towards stronger stuff when I need a good kick in the behind. Sounds like a fun ship to fly! Going to say typhoon for me. Mostly its been my dream to fly the panther when I first looked at the ship tree to decide my characters faction. Absolutely love the look of the ship hull. Tho it's hard to fly all the time. Right now I'm buckling down on my brawling bellicose and excited to test it with the application bonus. I would throw out the magic words and say that I love flying logi. I made a sorta meme solo osprey. 4 reppers and flux coils. So gets some solid reps and is still kinda fast. Sacrifices tank. It's only got a LASB so when you die it can be fast lol. It's cheap and can save someone and it's kinda a blast to mess around in. Auguror counterpart isn't as good but is somewhat viable, least for the memes.
  7. Hello Fera, My wife is not a gamer (YET), I am working on it, sadly I do not have any pet as my wife is very allergic to cat and dog hair. We have thought about fish after we fish sat for a co-work of hers while they were on holiday. I game out side of EVE with a good friend of mine and his wife, we played WOW for a while and a few other, we are all looking for something else at the moment, trying to get them into EVE but we are open to other games as well. Hope to catch up with you sometime on Discord. Take care. DS
  8. Hello potential new space friend! Great app - I almost couldn't come up with any questions. Almost... We just packed up our Remington 870 to let a friend keep for us while we're away in Europe for the next several years. What's your favorite firearm? Looking forward to bouncing fits off you, I play the role of primary Pyfa warrior around here. What's your favorite ship to fly? Mine is the Thorax, I have a fun shield/rail nano fit that tends to surprise T3Ds with the speed and DPS. Favorite caffeinated drink?
  9. Velociraptor for sure. I don't think I was quite as big into dinosaurs as my nephew, but I watched the first Jurassic Park and had a few books on dinosaurs that I enjoyed to read. The smaller agile specimen were always more of my favorites. So TBH sometimes the most memorable moments are not always the most pleasant. I decided I needed to leave the house and went camping early spring. I hit the cooler parts of the mountain and started finding snow yet kept trudging. I was severely ill prepared, no winter gear, yet burned thru calf deep snow to get where I wanted to go. Built a small fire and got some food in me, everything was going ok despite the cold so I tried to hit the hay and maybe read for a bit in the tent. From then it quickly become possibly on of the worst nights ever. Shivering to death and to top it off there were several deer or elk freaking barking or some shiz half the night. Super strange experience and I was within a mile of home but decided making the journey back in the middle of the night might not be necessary. I assume I at least had a flashlight, but really humbled me on being prepared and what it can be like out camping on your own. It sort of became a memory I look back on with some amusement and try to never mess up so badly again.
  10. Captain, what's your favorite dinosaur and most memorable time camping?
  11. Hi Captain Kai - glad you found us! Sounds like we'd be a great fit for you. Let's try to set up a Discord chat sometime this week. I'm available every night until 0330 Eve time, let me know what time works for you. I'm going to PM you the link to our Discord here in a minute. Talk to you soon!
  12. Hello! I am looking for a good place to call home again in the new eden world. I love the bit about community you guys have as it's something I try to drive and promote as part of the EvE experience. Reading all these recruit posts and a bit more about the group has really pushed me towards this corp in search for some fun. I will try to be concise as I tend to ramble on when putting words to ink lol. IN RL: I am a pretty reserved, mature 25yr old living and working full time in the beautiful big sky country of Montana. (Was pleasantly surprised to see another post from my state!) I have played other games but none have really sunk their teeth in quite like EvE has. My next favorite would be the Monster Hunter series and have played it for a long time as well. Worlds hasn't drawn my attention quite as much, but could probably chalk that up to no longer having hunting partners to join in with. On my off time, when I'm not busy being a closet weeb and snuggling my cats, I enjoy being outdoors hiking, camping, and of course shooting guns! I prefer relaxing at a campsite and fishing more then hiking just to hike but I did spend 3 days hiking around 20-30 miles across back-country trails, which was a worthwhile experience. EvE Online: Character name is Captain Kaiki Musana. Starting around this time in 2016 has given a great experience in people I've met and flown with since joining this game. I have done some hunting and roams or test runs in various areas of space but I feel most comfortable in WH space. After various setbacks and a lack of enthusiasm I feel like maybe something a bit different would be enjoyable. I like both the more laid-back environment as well as the smaller group you guys have set up and would hope to find my place in your corp. For a part of my EvE experiences I spent time in a pretty "elite" LS corp, It was mostly harmless banter but at some point I had slowly become more risk adverse and had trouble finding that damn undock button... I have mostly gotten back to the good ol' days of having fun and would like to continue working towards that goal. I make corp fits and enjoy beginner theory crafting however I'm still a bit reluctant to try fits and will agonize over fits and ships for an eternity. I am back to my willingness to welp in a glorious fire and finding some like minded people who log in and want to hunt and have fun would be a place I wish to be. Your corp may be in a similar situation as far as activity goes but I would like to test the waters and maybe help where I can. I sorta became a bit of a low time FC, I still freeze up when grid fills up and knowing where to go isn't my strong suit. Always looking to learn more and hoping to hear back! Fly fast, fly for fun Capt Kai
  13. Hey Tyrlis, How often do people assume your nickname is referring to the southern US instead of South Africa? Yeah pretty much all the time, no-one other then the Aussies seem to know where South Africa is. Kind of where the name came from down south in Africa as far down as you can go before you hit the ocean. Just ended up with Downsouth and it stuck. Tell us your favorite 'I was there when' EVE story. The Day that razor was the first alliance to lose multiple super caps in one battle, played tackle in a vaga that day. https://zkillboard.com/character/194573560/kills/reset/group/659/losses/ Watch any good TV shows recently? Good Omen, The Expanse, Jack Ryan and Carnival Row are a few latest good ones. I live in Ealing, west London in an old converted church. DS
  14. Hey Downsouth - nice to hear from you! I'm going to send you a PM with our Discord link here soon. Let's try to talk sometime this weekend and then we can get you an invite to the corp. You picked a great time to look us up. We're joining up with an alliance in Syndicate that is active primarily in EUTZs, so you'll be able to meet/hang out with people even SOHCO people are offline. We're planning to expand our recruiting to EUTZs too once Tyrlis moves to Europe too. Hopefully we'll have some decent activity in EUTZ in the next couple months. Talk to you soon!
  15. Hello potential new space friend! I'm TBert, director in the EVE Cohort. That's funny - I've been USTZ for 8 years, and am about to move to EUTZ for 3 or 4 years (stationed in Germany with the Army). I have friends & family near London (Southend and Hitchen) so I'll be visiting the UK for sure. There's nothing wrong with Maryland though, I spent a few years at Fort Meade and learned to like the parts outside the beltway. Random question time! How often do people assume your nickname is referring to the southern US instead of South Africa? Tell us your favorite 'I was there when' EVE story. Watch any good TV shows recently?
  16. Hi Steve -- welcome! Like many, you may have found a home here in SoH -- we're seeded with many mature professionals and generally seek out good people rather than good gamers, know what I mean? I'm from "down south" myself (New Orleans, Louisiana) but currently reside under the snow in Minnesota (lol). I lived in Stratford-Upon-Avon for a couple of years and not-so-longingly recall the dismal weather. But like Minnesota, England puts on quite the show for when spring arrives. Flowers everywhere! One thing is certain, regions forced to deal w/ persistently icky weather know how to take advantage of nicer climes. I'm curious, does your wife game as well? My husband and I met playing Rift nearly a decade ago, and although we don't game online together any longer, we do both still game and continue to share that love. How about pets? Have you any of those? Cats, dogs, maybe a tarantula or two? We're pet lovers here and you're more than welcome to share pics of your furbabies-- in fact, it's required! I have 3 crazy cats: Chaos, Loki and Luna(tic) who keep me quite busy, hehe. Although I won't meet you playing EVE, hopefully we'll get to know each other on Discord or in another game somewhere down the line. Members of SoH tend to stay stuck, even socially if they aren't currently gaming. I've returned to GW2, play ESO sporadically, and enjoy co-oping the odd survival game like Raft. Simone will be along to chat you up soon (he's probably not had his tea yet xD). I look forward to meeting you!
  17. Good Day South of Heaven, I came across your forum post about recruitment and like what I saw about a community rather than just a group of player. I am recently returned to Eve after another long break, I been playing Eve on and off since 2006. This game never lets you gooooo... That also hints that I am a mature gamer, in my mid 40s. I am EU timezome but may be becoming US in the next year or so. My real name is Steve, currently living in cold wet London, with my wife who for her sins is from Rockville, Maryland. Originally I am from South Africa but moved to London over 20 years ago. My day job involves managing a support team in the IT sector I am looking for a relaxed fun place to play eve, I have been there and done most of the content eve has to offer and now just want to have fun playing the game with like minded people. I look forward to meeting you guys. DS Out.
  18. Hello potential new space friend! If you're into theorycrafting and solo, you'll probably enjoy getting to know Caldari Joans. He's a former member that hangs around our Discord and in-game channel regaling us with tales of his solo adventures in blingy ships. Random question time! Favorite ship in EVE? Favorite ship in real life? What television show have you binged most recently?
  19. Hello all! I have been playing EVE for about 8 years on and off, recently finished a stint in Origin., which is now closing since Elo Knight is going back into retirement. I've fought in basically every part of the game with the exception of wormhole space at this point: I've done faction warfare, lowsec piracy, nullsec sov warfare, small gang, large fleets, etc. However, I've had the most fun with just grabbing a bunch of different ships and seeing what we can find to kill. I also do some theorycrafting and solo PVP in my spare time. Happy to fly with South of Heaven!
  20. <3 Futurama. Eve is probably the only game where you can yell "Stop exploding, you cowards!" legitimately.
  21. Those are some excellent pictures!
  22. Thank you for the welcome post. I was fortunate enough to catch the fleet action yesterday so I got to taste a bit of the action. 1) I never actually played any of the Far Cry games, but from what I've seen it did a good job of representing the scenery --at least in the mountains. The whole eastern and northern part of the state is mostly plains, and in the western mountainous side (where I live), most of the "big cities" are down in huge valleys between massive ranges, like this (near where I live): But I'm lucky enough to only have to drive 15-30 minutes to get in the mountains, then it looks like the game: 2) Mostly just getting into software development/engineering. I do some stuff with machine learning and AI, but I'm more drawn towards making high utility products/services honestly. 3) My IRL favorite planet is Uranus (hehe, I said Ur). I love the color of it and its axial tilt makes it really unique and interesting. My favorite fictional planet is Amazonia from Futurama, for obvious, immature, reasons (face_mischief).
  23. Hello potential new space friend! It often takes more than once for EVE to really stick, but when it does (and you've got the right group of friends to play with) there's no other game like it. I've got probably 4 years of playtime across 4 iterations. I'm sorry to hear about your bad experiences with a previous corp - EVE is a brutal teacher, and we'll help you out as much as we can, but you should also be prepared to spend some time reading sites like the EVE University Wiki. Random question time! What's the most accurate & least accurate thing about Montana from Far Cry 5? What field of computer science are you looking to get into? What's your favorite planet?
  24. Hi Nick/Shibity - nice to see you here! I sent you a mail this morning with our Discord link. Let's try to get on Discord sometime today so that we can get you a corp invite. I had a similar experience with a bad corp when I started playing, so I definitely know the feeling! We can get you started with basic PvP mechanics pretty quickly. I recently started using twitch to share my screen with new players so they can see first hand how to do some things. There are so many little UI quirks and hidden menus in Eve that it's often best to just see what someone else is doing. Look forward to showing you some cool tricks soon!
  25. Hello all, I saw your recruitment post on r/evejobs and decided to reach out and introduce myself. About me My real name is Nick, I am 30 and live in Montana with my wife. I started college a little later than most and have about one more year before I graduate with my BS in computer science. I love playing games to unwind after the day and I am generally online for around 2 hours between 6:00pm-10:00pm MST (0100-0400 Eve) a few times a week. I usually go by my username, Shibity. But I don't mind too much if you alternatively use my real name or my eve character name. Eve Background My in-game character is Kane Apterus. Despite having my account for nearly 3 years, I've actually only played for around 2-3 months total. When I first got the game in early 2017, I rushed into joining a small corporation and, frankly, it was a disaster. I was very green at the game (still am) and this group had a habit of simply telling me what to do without any explanation, and then would be quite rude and condescending when I would make mistakes. I felt intimidated and left the game behind for the last ~2 1/2 years. Recently, I've started getting back in the game. I've been doing some safe, vanilla isk-making tasks like hauling goods, station trading, mining, and been trying to train up some of my skills (I'm still really low, ~925k SP). As you all know, there's only so much this game can offer when you are playing solo and I know that I'm missing out on huge fun. What I'm hoping for I'm looking for some nice people to play eve with who can teach me how to PvP and have some good laughs along the way. I'd love to make some new friends and experience all the things eve has to offer. I'll be reaching out in-game soon and look forward to speaking with you guys. Thanks, Shibity
  26. Hello potential new space friend! I gotta know - what's the background on the name? Tell us some more about your previous EVE experience. You didn't do much PvP, but also trained one of the most specialized PvP ships in the game? And to round out with a 3rd random question - ketchup or mustard with your fries?
