    To be honest I'm not really sure how to answer the question. I think that in general the style of play I enjoy has diminished across the board, so I wouldn't be surprised if Hoover is included in that. Not having been in corp, only having heard things from current members, I don't have a start and an end point to compare past to present in regards to Hoover, but I do know how SL1DE was in the past, and how it is in the present and it's just not my jam anymore. Your question seemed more like a comment about Hoover/the general state of the game, but I hope I managed to answer it atleast a little.

    DOOD I felt bad having asked the people to inject for the kills, I figured they should get something. It ended up being A) Too cancer to track, and B) not enough ganks/profits to give each person more than like 25m, so I just didn't worry about it in the end.

    I'd probably try and figure out a way to split the loot between the important people, the f1'ers, and then give some back to the corp to pay for the losses and then some. And then when it came down to it after selling the loot, I'd just pay the people that actually did work like scanning and bumping, take out the isk I invested and then leave the wallet w/ about 1b profit to be dealt with by someone else. Aka you were right about how to pay people.

    Fixed. In case you were curious, fisting is 300 bucks.

    If I had to chose one thing to do everyday, it would be rounding 3/4 people together to go elite DVD gangs that roll by wherever we are. Flash forming a small gang of people is enjoyable, and as long as you don't go above 5 people in Lowsec, you'll probably get a fight. Currently the comp i'm fairly fond of us 1 Damp scythe, 3 stabbers and 1 frig of assorted variety. That would be what I would be okay doing multiple times a day, every day. Also suicide ganking every day would be pretty enjoyable.

    Nahh, then I would have to jump it and everything and worry about selling it again.. That seems like altogether WAY too much work. That said, if I were you I would watch him.. he's a sly boi that one.

    I used to like Hawaiian pizza as a kid, but I haven't had it, or any other pineapple on a pizza in a very long time and I'm not really keen to try it again

    1) I'm leaving SL1DE because it's time for a change. SL1DE isn't where I personally would have wanted it to be, and where I was trying to steer it while I was a director. When we started out, we grew and recruited people both from within and from outside of TAPI that showed skill in small gang piloting, were good at a special role in a fleet, stood out, etc. As time passed we seemed to lose that idenity. I don't say this to sound like an elitest, I'm by no means amazing at this game, but the Small gang, drop in-drop out roams, USTZ content feel of the corp has seemed to dimish over the years. Granted a lot of this can be attributed to the state of the game, but I still think the corp is just headed in a different direction in a general sense. 2) Back in Delta Squad, there was some hurfblurf going around about how Naliao Inc. was going to be the next Hoover. People seemed to confuse "Delta Squad" with "Naliao Inc" and assumed that we were rounding up all the good pilots just to be able to bounce and join PL/NC/Somewhere ELITE. Certain people turned fairly hostile towards us for a while, and as a meme I named my Naglfar "Hoover 2.0" as that was a nickname Naliao Inc/Delta was given. Since then I've been increasingly aware of what Hoover does and how they fly, and it has always seemed to fit my play style. Good pilots, good content, a "thick skin required" atmosphere. When a few of us close friends in SL1DE all came to realize that the corp wasn't going in the direction we wanted, we put our heads together and Hoover was the first thing I thought of. Plus you guys recently got Opec and Imputinus two of my good EVE Friends and they have said nothing but good things, and I'm keen to keep flying with them boys as an added treat to joining. 3) I think I can contribute a lot to Hoover and the greater PL. There's the obvious "I have a super/titan/Dread/Fax" aspect for sure, but more than that I think I can contribute a decent amount of game knowledge, and general pilot skill. When people ping for help, I fleet up. People need a fit, I'll either give them one or critique one they've made to the best of my ability. Fleet is short on Logi, I'll swap. Max Fax/Max Dreads, I got the toons, etc. Flat out, I enjoy fragging nerds and having a good time while doing it. I also enjoy trying to find new things to do, be it a new Lowsec area to find easy frags, or forming a squad to gank freighters in Highsec. 4) Nahh, it was purely coincidence. He pinged me a few minutes after I posted my app saying that we posted the same gif, and I felt it was dishonest to change it. Plus, come on man.. that gif is 5/7. It was either that GIF, or the one where he brushes the hair from her face and she gives him "the look." For your enjoyment. Zombieland is a great movie.

    I don't die to War Targets... Only faction police. That said I've never lost a JF to Faction Police.. I think I have quite a few "AFK on Insta-undock in Amarr while -5.00" before I reach Imp levels of feed.

    1. Who is vouching you and how do you know them? Impunitus "Impy" Umbra I met Imp back in TAPI. We became very good friends and then he joined SL1DE. Eventually we were in Leadership/Directorship together and our mutual love grew. 2. How old are you and where do you come from? 24, Live in California in the Untited States. 3. Give us an overview of your corp history - be honest! I started playing in 2007 at a recomendation from a Wow friend. I made a Toon, Dooderary, and he gave me 14million isk, I prompty lost it in the form of Thoraxes. I then quit for 2 years, when I came back I lost access to that account and that character looked to be deleted. I made my alt Dooderay out of sadness for my lost first character. In 2009, my main was born. My Corp history is long and full of unevenful stories, most of the corps are repeat and were run by a close friend I met in early 2010 in Recruitment channel. Blackened Skies is where the journey really starts. I joined this corp after meeting a guy in lowsec and camping with them. We lived out of Avenod I believe, gate camping and the like. Eventually we decided to move to Null, in Greatwildlands. We joined The Unthinkables who became russian pets. I found in those wars on the russian side for a while. Eventually Blackened Skies was going to leave, but I enjoyed INK so i decied to stay, joining Un-Co. The corp started to fall apart, so I went back to my friends in Blackended Skies. The corp then started to break apart when the CEO left to the military, I joined Posthuman Society which I think was a Wormhole corp at the time. I think I went afk for Real life/School and they kicked me without my ever having gone into the WH. All of the other corps up until Naliao Inc are more corps run by me and my RL friend, mostly just us and alts/a few other friends. We did WHs, fed in lowsec, ran lvl 4s, really just messing around. Naliao Inc is where I really started to love this game. My friend saw Naliao posting in recruitment, he submitted and EVE Mail App and was invited, I did a troll app with his vouch and got in. At this point Naliao Inc was very small. I flew with TAPI in Wicked Creek, was basically an F1 monkey until Rusrog started Delta Squad. This is where I learned to PVP/FC a little/Not be a ship chasing dummy. I made great friends in Naliao Inc and stayed with them through leaving TAPI, switching to Avalanche., joining TRI, leaving Tri, and joining NC. I was in Delta Squad command when we were in our prime, then joined Naliao Inc HR and helped with the transition to Avalanche.. I then became a director for a while helping move the corp out of TAPI and Into TRI. I stepped down from Director due to some internal disagreements and went AFK for a while, and came back around the time we joined NC. Naliao Inc/SL1DE is where I met most of the people I call friends in this game. Recently the corp has seemed to be going away from where I wanted it to go/where I tried to help it go, and I think I'm just ready to shake things up a little bit. I harbor no ill-will towards anyone in SL1DE and I hope they don't towards me either. 4. How many hours a week do you play Eve? I am usually at/around my PC most days after work, as far as playing eve, anywhere from 15-25h a week on average, sometimes more depending on whats happening at that time. 5. Do you post on any public forums e.g. Reddit/FHC etc? If so, link them. I post on Reddit, https://www.reddit.com/user/Burnwash/ I'm currently posting under the TAPI flair because it amuses me greatly. Part 2 6. How do you make ISK? I pay for my subs with $$, and I buy plex for ISK, usually when a sale is on. I don't enjoy krabbing, and I've tried making money many ways. I do Boson rat sometimes, but its more of a meme than a scource of income. 7. What do you enjoy doing in EVE? I enjoy small gang with competent pilots and friends, and I like dropping caps. If I had to boil it down to specifics, the thing I enjoy most is flying Logi in a small gang setting with friends. 8. Do you have any experience FCing or anchoring? I FC'd back in Delta a bit, and since then I have been known to take out a few fleets or round people up for a roam/fight. I have Logi Anchored/Fleet anchored before, but I prefer not to. 9. List any useful skills you may have - combat probing, tackle ceptors, multiboxing, fits, whatever. I like to think I'm pretty good at small-gang Logi, my fav fit being a damp Scythe flown w/ t1 cruisers, and just small gang in general. I'd also say I'm a good Pyfa-er. I make most fits I fly, sometimes with the help of a fitting-god corpmate. 10. What do you think of maltecs? If you can't find out what a maltec is, name your favorite anime. (Note: eva is a dWEEB) I do not watch Anime. The last anime I watched was Naruto when I was younger. 11. Include your favourite Emma Stone GIF. That shirt does it for me, what can i say. Part 3 12. Can you fly a FAX and a dread on two different characters? If no, explain why and tell us how long it would take you to solve this. I have a separate Fax toon on his own account. As for dread, I turned my Rev toon into an Avatar toon. So, technically yes I can fly a dread and FAX on Separate accounts. 13. List all your characters. Please provide a description along with relevant zkillboard, eveboard and sale thread links. Don't include characters you'd rather keep out of public view - PM these to @Avery Lewis. I'm leaving out Zkills for gankers/Fax toon as they are basically as you would expect.
