Started in 2008, Ben Walker was my first character. Joined a high sec corp (101st) and did the high sec wars thing for a while, move to provi with 101st and fought againt -A-. joined CVA for a short while, then joined HAVOC (-A-) when a few of my friends joined. Had some fun wars with -A-. Was talked into joining Rionnag Alba. Moved up north with Rionnag Alba, Doom and SM3LL to fight the old northern coalition That was great fun, old NC fell and NCdot was born a while later. Stayed with Rionnag Alba and NCdot for over 4 years, there were some great fun times but I particularly remember the Tribute War against Goons. We lost the region but we made goons bleed for months while outnumbered. Eventually Rionnag Alba joined Triumvirate (again) and I flew with Tri for about a year. After that Rionnag Alba leadership went inactive and corp disbanded. I joined N8RTH and was back in NCDot. I have been with N8RTH and NCDot since 04/2015. I have flown with NCDot for over 6 years and of couse have been blue to PL during that time.

 

 

♥9♥ List any relevant killboard links to your PvP characters‚ and explanations of any significant losses.

♥10♥ Why do you want to join us? Where did you hear about us? List any references or vouches in HABIT or PL (MAKE SURE you’ve talked to them first before posting here).

 

I have heard a lot of good things about PL from my friends, who have recently moved over from NCDot to PL. Maka will vouch for me.

Section 3: EVE Knowledge

This next section is designed to get to know more about your EVE knowledge and what you would do in different situations.

 

♥17♥ While roaming‚ you find a Drake in a belt and engage it (you decide what ship(s) you’re roaming in‚ and give us the setups here too). Half way through the fight‚ while the Drake has you warp disrupted‚ a Basilisk uncloaks. What do you do?

 

Lets say I'm in a Orthrus (fit below) with small gang, we switch all dps to the Basi, I call for someone to hold point on drake while i switch my long point to the Basi. I burn out of drake point range, over-heated faction long point on Orthrus has 54km range :)

♥18♥ You are roaming with an alliance member‚ both of you in Vagabonds‚ and spot a lone Drake on a gate in an empty system. What do you do?

 

I ask my mate to jump to see if the Drake is bait for gang on other side, meanwhile I lock him up / bump the drake to try to spook him into jumping, if he still don't jump, I tackle/aggress and try force him through, on the other side the second vaga points him / aggros and stays out of scram range. if the drake re-approaches the gate then rinse / repeat, if the drake aggros then as soon as my aggro timer is down I jump and both vaga's kill the drake

 

♥19♥ You are solo roaming in a Vagabond and jump into a gate-camp with some interceptors and Arazus. How do you survive‚ if possible?

 

Main option is to crash the gate. If you attempt to burn off either the arazu or ceptors will likely get scram on you. If you believe you will get scrammed before crashing the gate, the other option is to burn away for the arazu in line with some celestial and kill / neut any ceptor that tries to tackle you. Try to get out of arazu scram range and then burn / warp off.

 

♥20♥ You and a friend are in supercarriers‚ in low-sec, killing a small offline tower. Suddenly‚ a Falcon uncloaks and 50 roleplayers bridge in on top of both of you with eight HICs and 50k dps worth of ships. How do you survive?

 

i probably would not be in this situation in the first place, but if I was killing a small offline tower with my supercarrier in low sec you can bet I would be aligned to a POS / Citadel or at least a safe spot. As soon as the falcon decloaked I would warp out. If somehow I failed the warp out and a HIC tackled me I would try to neut the HIC's, then I would make sure my cyno was online and I would ask calmly for assistance

 

♥21♥ You and a friend are in scrubby battlecruisers (e.g. Hurricanes or Harbingers) with weak tanks‚ in low sec. A Tempest aggresses you under sentry fire and neutralizes all your cap‚ but you are able to MWD away out to 30km after taking a lot of damage. Do you leave your friend to die?

 

Fuck no, I try to help my friend. Now that I'm outside large neut range I switch to appropriate ammo and apply overheated dps to the tempest, i launch drones and apply max dps cause fuck that tempest.

 

♥22♥ You are in Old Man Star and have intel of a Nyx warping around. Describe the steps you would take to find the Nyx.

 

Ask a corp mate to move a HIC close to (but not in Old Man Star). Use a neutral alt in a covert ops to search the system using d-scan to attempt to find the Nyx at celestial locations. Book mark locations that the Nyx has been warping around to. Move your neutral alt to one of the locations that the Nyx was at and wait for him to come back. Get your corp HIC buddy on gate to Old Man Star. ping alliance for fleet to kill Nyx. When you see Nyx on close range d-scan, get corp HIC buddy to jump in a warp to your neutral alt.
