  • 1. Whо is your vouch in Collapsed Оut

 

                   Riffsajet 

 

  • 2. How long have you been playing EVE Online?

 

                  I've been playing since 24 JUL 2006 with a few breaks in between due to military obligations.

 

  • 3. What do you like to do in EVE Online?

 

                  Partake in strategy and doctrine where the relevant skills of your buddies to your left and right enforce the tasks to get shit accomplished.

 

  • 4. Give us a brief biography of your EVE career.

 

                 I started my career off as a pirate and later participated in zero.zero operations learning the ropes. Ended up in Stain doing some nullsec pvp and FC'd while devising new tactics to take on the larger blobs with a lot less ships. Good fun. I joined PL back in 2010 in Habit, yay me :D

                 In IRL I deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan a few times taking a break from eve and eventually ended back up in low-sec doing some pirating as well as coordinating with other echelons to have larger scale fights than the usual 20 man roams. I had decided to do the CEO bid for a bit and with 

                good success!

 

 

  • 6. Post three kills that you are most pleased with and tell us why you like them.
    • 1) https://zkillboard.com/kill/18517536/ 
      • I remember this so vividly. We managed to have MM spread their cap fleet and logoffski and we waited for them to log-in over the course of a few days. I was on standby and finally we received the intel that MM super fleet was logging back on with "Yaay" at the helm of FCing their super fleet. We managed to snag him and I remember it was such a crippling blow for him to diaf in his super back then. I got the killing blow doomsday on him and was one of the first few titans to land on grid.
    • 2) https://zkillboard.com/kill/5390409/
      • Nrom Gustav was super full of rage when I warped my pulse zealot in on the field by myself at 100km and attracked him in his inty. I burned away to my warp out location with MWD running and I blapped him with 2 shots with a 50km pulse zealot. I really wish I still had the chat logs :P
    • 3) https://zkillboard.com/kill/65356602/
      • Cant remember the last time I saw an Orca in low-sec with a single ship for escort. Was pretty surprising. We thought he was bait originally, decided to drop anyways.
  • 7. Can you fly a FAX machine (what type/ t1 or t2 triage)?
    • Yes, I can fly a Lif on my main and an Apostle on my Alt (Cavik). Both characters are maxed for that.

 

  • 8. Do you own a supercapital/titan?
    • Erebus, Ragnarok, Hel

 

  • 9. What do you think you are good at and what would you like to improve at in EVE?
    • I would like to think I'm good at looking at things in a different perspective and trying to figure out how things work. Such as fleet doctrines and how to make them better or applicable to multiple situations. It always intrigues me to think about what compositions go well with an intent.
    • I would like to get better at understanding newer game mechanics that incorporated sov mechanics. I never really cared for sov tbh. I always felt it wasn't incredibly necessary as long as I logged on for the "PEW".

 

  • 10. What is your main way of making ISK?
    • Primary source of income is to bang out some level 5s.
  •  

  • 11. How did you hear about‚ and why do you want to join Collapsed Оut?
    • My current corporation, of which I'm the current CEO, has its current active member base starting to merge with cruisers crew. We are flying well with cruisers crew and the topic of merger was on the table for a long time. Helping integrate both corps into one will allow success for their overall vision. I've been asked by Riff for quite a few months to put in an app to join him here. I feel that this is my time to entertain him :D He is my single point of reference and he tells me stories of the things that he was apart of, and as for certainly long time, I've always wanted to come back to the legion. I miss fighting against the odds :D

 

  • 12. On average‚ how many hours per week do you think you play?
    • I play about two to three hours per day during the week and I play throughout the day on the weekends.

 

  • 13. Tell us a bit about your real self.
    • How old are you ?
      • I'm 32 years old.
    • Where are you from?
      • I'm from the best state that was ever crafted in this great united states of murica, Arizona!
    • What do you do outside of EVE such as work or play?
      • I do a lot of fishing with reel/rod and bow fishing at night. It depends upon my military obligations as I'm active duty army. I work on Apache attack helicopters.

 

  • 14. Poѕt your favorite Taylor Swift gif and explain why it ѕpeаks tо you.
    • Extreme serious business............. Best described with a lot of Fire.. Entertain me please, with fire... I like explosions :D
      • taylor-swift-amas-2014-blank-space-fire.
  • 15. There’s a ping that goes out for a fleet forming and at the same time a ping from Jeffraider goes out for his movie night‚ what do you do?
    • Definately let Jeffm8ter host the movie night while I play eve and sit on a titan like the old days when shadoo was always yelling at him :P

 

  • 16. Hоw many WHѕ it it worth taking to get a ѕlightly possible cаpkill/fight?
    • Depends on how many probers you have, mass of the enroute holes, size of your fleet. I would say anything is possible with the right attitude and composition.

 

  • 17. Using this picture http://chinchilling.ninja/tF3Cn.jpg create 3 amusing/funny/deep or 'just surprise us' versions. We will judge you on the font you use and the phrase that you use. Good luck. You can use MSpaint (which everyone has) or  https://www.gimp.org/downloads/ it's like photoshop except it's free.
    • 15e61d7fa3.jpg
    • 03ebfabdc0.jpg
    • 176c2dd67a.jpg
  • 18. Pick a song that describes you and link it to us. You can explain it or not if you feel it speaks for itself. 
    • I always thought how the lyrics go and how the characters that you imagine have to overcome great odds in order to survive.

Between the discord gamer gf socialites, 

the waffle tryhard back door grad who get people escorted out of bars, can't fit blops, have less collective SP than an average cyno alt and who post roam ops of shitty "insert LMAO Extdee meta ship from 2012" weeks in advance

the streamer backdoor harem

the people that spent months if not a year trying to claw their way into PL only to blow their exit on a dumb Ishtar kill

the corp that then hoovers up 60% of the dropouts and collectively accounts for recruiting standards seen in c-list lowsec roaming corps

the refugees from a DoA Australian corp that promised Dansara a revitalized AUTZ in 2017

the app who got bullied by his corp for leaving, forced us to hide his post to prevent bullying, spent weeks being talked to to get him to leave his miserable life in his previous corp (who guilt tripped him to stay), had people move heaven to get his ships moved, and after all of it, dropped corp and goes AFK after just a week in PL and twice seen on coms

the waste water that is the shattered remains of a once proud USTZ 

and the charred wrecks of a EUTZ that can't even hold itself to the preverbial internet "roll over and take it" punching bag of Jintaans providence 

 

Explain how the fuck YOU, as an out of touch CEO who is losing his members to Cruisers Crew of all things, can be beacon of light to guide us through an absolutely abysmal recruitment season and NOT just another bullet point for me to add to the post.

Ok serious questions only here:

 

1.) Why do you not have recon 5 on your main? I noticed you have it on your alt, however why train recon to 4 if not to finish it off?

 

2.) https://zkillboard.com/kill/65201062/ Please explain this loss, By looking at it, you are a cloaky ham tengu, did you engage this get baited and jumped?

Were you caught somehow?

If you attacked them, why did you not have scouts on the exit gates? I am just curious, as a huge former low sec pirate myself, what were the circumstances in this loss?

 

3.)Pandemic Legion has very serious alt requirements, which I learned when I joined, at any time the heads of the alliance will decide you NEED a specific alt type, since you seem to have a lower number of accounts

At least listed, which is a No-no, if you dont want to list the accounts, message the recruiters and send them those, I did that.

Are you comfortable creating more accounts/buying characters/injecting characters to fill the needs of the alliance?

 

4.)This was a question that was asked to me when I joined and honestly, I found it a very important question that really does fit with the culture of CYNOU, so please consider this seriously before you respond:

 

Are you comfortable coming to real life meetups such as eve vegas and such?

 

5.) PL is more of a culture feeling than anything else, we tend to fuck around a lot, but we(mostly) tend to know when to shut up and take things seriously.

I have heard people ripped apart in comms when they make excuses, are you comfortable handling that type of constructive criticism?

I have noticed it is less prevalent in CYNOU, however, if you really fuck up you will be interrogated about it. Thick skin is an important part of being in PL.

Edit: Since riffs so kindly pointed out what I already knew that you had been in habit, I would like to say, that 7 years is a long time, and people change.

Should you join, will you accept that your Ragnarok will be, at best, relegated to an exceedingly rare bridge titan and your hel being mothballed until you have a worthy DEDICATED character? You might be able to get away with ratting but super capital mains aren't exactly a thing here.

 

Your Erebus pilot is missing a plethora of new skills and modules (such as T2 guns) which are required for sc-legion. Will you push to be sc-legion compliant? Will you inject your toon to be?

 

Do you plan on buying an armor super carrier?

Ok I'll post more tomorrow. But here's what I have tomorrow. First I like Riffs, he's agood guy. He has a good heart something something w/e the expression is. So that speaks to your character. As can be seen my corp is VERY passionate about who we let in, as Riffs knows. And he doesn't vouch lightly. Now with all this being said and my corp being overly memey tonight... which has been corrected. 

 

On average (be honest) that when an FC asks for a boosher, dictor, logi, triage alt, scout, cyno, what's the amount of time you generally wait until you volunteer to help out?

Back in 2009 I ran a group of 100km fast aligning pulse apocs and combated the local blobs with about 10 of these ships. I had 31 bookmarks around an orbital object that allowed me to easily align the fleet by having them turn around and align to where we just warped from. Able to engage with great tracking and good alpha despite that distance. It was fun and successful. Able to engage fleets much larger than our own.

I dont own more than 3 accounts, so mostly cavik takes care of those types of things. I do have a cyno alt on that same account. Yea, I can keep fax and dreads in multiple locations.

Edit: Since riffs so kindly pointed out what I already knew that you had been in habit, I would like to say, that 7 years is a long time, and people change.

1) Its been in the queue. Remember the days, "because of falcon"??? My main was always in a pvp ship with falcon alt support back in those days.

2) We were in a fleet and the FC had enough intel, but if I remember correctly we got third partied. Just to much to take on after the other group came in. 

3) Great question, Looks like PL upgraded the alt account needs since I was last in PL. Its always a serious short coming for people to not have enough alts to provide the intended capability. I've never had the need to procure or produce an extended amount of alts to fulfill more roles, but I can indeed get an additional alt.

4) Heck yea!!! I've always wanted to go to fanfest and closer events. Trying to meet up with Riff as we both just moved to the east coast. As always though, I am active duty military and operational needs dictate most of my planned vacation time.

5) That constructive criticism is important to have when things are as important with as much assets get put on the line to include peoples time. You have to be open minded to the intent and that's where having a proverbial clue about what is going on around you is so important. Each person makes up the team and when individuals start showing their mistakes, it distracts greatly from the team effort. Yes, I was in habit 7 years ago, but I'm a very adaptable player. I've seen the tongue lashings shadoo and grath have given out. I always enjoyed the sense of purpose each player gave towards the fight. Having put my titan on the field many many many times trusting everybody to do their job is what I remember made PL great.

Great question, like I said in the app about the rag, its there. Not fitted, no purpose right now. I have it basically to have it until I want to do something elaborate with it. The Hel definately needs a dedicated character. Having had a super since 2010, I completely understand this prospect in having a dedicated character. Only reason I did not have a dedicated hel pilot was because I knew I would not be using the super enough in low-sec with the group I was in to justify buying a dedicated character at that time. When my plans changed, I knew that the outcome would require I have my assets be readily available and could use that to the teams advantage, thus needing a dedicated alt.

Passionate about who the team players are to one's left and right is incredibly important to me. Can count on those when things dont go as planned to hold each other up and continue the fight. Its the right place of mind in my opinion. I have 2 accounts that can provide those necessities and I have quite a few booshers on hand actually. The best response I can give towards your question is when asked in a general statement towards the group as a whole, it is intended to muster the assets required, If you can fly it, you should do it quickly. I dont waste time to get the critical play making assets. Like I said before, its the team function to provide each other the resulting confidence and competence to fight hard and fight well along side each other.

 

Also, somebody else asked me about my titan skills. I did not train up the newer skills at the time, because I wanted a dread alt that I felt was more useful to me in low-sec than that. My dread alt is currently on my titan account. I'm sorting out accounts with intent to move that character to a brand new account to separate those assets. I believe all I need to train is cap hybrid blaster spec and get it up to 4. After I move my dread alt to a new account, I will train it to 5 like I do with the rest of my stuff. More relation to the remaining skills on that ship will be rectified.

 

Elaboration on toxic uprising..

The way I setup the leadership structure was to delegate the corporate responsibilities to sectional leaders where they would make content and receive content creation requests from the members. After having quite a few senior leaders start having IRL requirements taking away their time, it became evident that we could not succeed in that fashion any longer. Indicated by more and more people starting to play casually due to a lack of planned ops between Cruisers Crew and Toxic Uprising and TOXU FC's playing early EU and or deep US TZ where I could not play. I also started to pick up fishing a lot on the weekends while the weather was still decent. Merger was always on the table between the two corporations as we lived together on CC comms, cohesion was great and we were able to field some fun doctrines and do some neat stuff in low-sec, albeit getting sloshed by a double cross, the losses were rectified and life continued on. After some discussions with my directors, I felt it was in the best interest of both corporations to finally facilitate the merger to ensure activity abroad does not effect the total outcome of the capabilities with CC/TOXU. I in no way see this as a loss for either groups, its a gain to the capabilities as a whole that CC can now strive to work easier resolving diplomatic issues and planning issues in a much more rapid pace. Riff also kept telling me to push an application in as well for a long time :D I feel it should be my attempt to let Riff coerce me a little :P I also see the merger as an opportunity to do what I miss doing outside of smaller lowsec fights. I still have very good friends!

Fair, it should be said that I don’t take f1 pressers in. If someone isn’t willing to step up somehow l, I don’t need em. Dictor alts, booshers, cynos, apostles, dreads... are all important. Also logi, even though some people in corp never fly logi, I know I can point to anyone in corp and force them into one if I need to. 

 

 

I also want to make sure that while you say Riffs coerced you to do this, this is actually what you want. We just spent a large amount of time on another app ( thanks sabre) to then have the person decide his time was down with EVE, so he left and retired. There isn’t really a question here just a partial explanation on why some people might be a bit more sceptical than we normally would.

Its simple. Accountability,  Competence and Confidence, & Dependability. I eluded to that a bit in my previous post. Through thick and thin. Knowing each others capabilities is important to the overall achievement of the team. If I can count on somebody then why have them around. Or even a suspicion without action, its prevalent in each person's action. Individual action and decision making process makes for a largely aggressive team. Aggression dominates weakness, always.

 

Edit:

As far as LOGI goes, ask Riff how many times I said I will be doing FAX logi with rather expensive faxs to ensure success. Screw kill mails if you can push the team to success with knowing that you can trust in yourself ;) Its important to me knowing who performs and who doesn't. Trust in each other is key.

And I can definitively attest that your time is worth the effort in reviewing my character as a player wanting to join this corp. Riff talks highly of the teamwork aspect.
