Lets address the obvious here, the lack of any kills for a significant period of time.

The Why

I enjoy PvP and believe this game exists purely for it, the industry side of things is largely a distraction which is a place to bide my time until I find good PvP opportunities again.

While in HAX (listed below), I throughly enjoyed my time. Had some great fights during the Casino Wars and afterwards in -TC-, or out and about with the corpies. However, after HAX fell apart I have yet to be successful in finding a home which I'm happy enough to get out there and PvP. NC. is a huge organisation which is great at big fleet fights, but the corp I'm in, Nameless., does not have that internal drive to get out there and make smaller fleets a thing. Furthermore, I don't hold a strong bond with the corp. So I've found myself filling my time in stuffing the wallet over PvP.

Not an excuse, but there's the fact.

 


7. Tell uѕ about your history in Eve. Where have you been? What have you done? Who are your friends? Your enemies? What was your most memorable fight? Be thorough! Write a book!
I first learned of EvE in in 2006 when a colleague introduced me to it. Back in the days of no skill queues, 30 second session change timers and the Deimos being the most incredible thing you could possibly conceive. I think CVN had just collapsed, or was about to. I found myself in a small corporation called Wolf Pack Delta. We setup home in GRNJ in Syndicate. Everyone remembers were they first entered 0.0, and for me it was Syndicate. A region famous for Poitot.. I stayed in Wolf Pack Delta until December 2017, ish. During that time I saved up enough isk to purchase a main called Groot Piel. Sadly, that name got nerfed and was changed to Groot T. Where some of you may know me from a long time ago.

After Wolfpack, I joined Infinitus Odium in an alliance called "The Church". The main FC was a guy called Forgon, incredible small gang FC. One outing was dubbed "Forgons 300 jumps across EvE" and was all in Ceptors. I think it lasted over 12 hours and spanned a DT. One of the guys in QUAM made a video. Simply epic fun.

While in The Church, I moved into a small corp Malicious intentions and camped the Stacmon gate in Covryn for about 6 months. The corp was essentially 10 people, but it was great fun. Still in contact with two of the guys now. One in particular, if the police or my wife see the Memes on whatsapp, I'd be in jail or worse.

After the Stacmon gate had seen the last of its days, I started flying with Hedliner in Total Mayhem under a toon called UWanna. However, I ended up moving my main into a corp in the same alliance as Total Mayhem, a corp called Reaper Industries. The alliance was Cry Havoc and it was, quite possibly, one of the best time I have ever had in EvE. Remote-Rep battleship gangs were a thing, Megathrons with 7 guns and 1 Large Solace RR. You cock up your rep & pew targets, and you've just given your fleet member, who is in dire need of assistance, a rack of Antimatter. Not good.

But the fun of EvE came to an end in 2010 when I met my now wife and needed money. So I quite the game.

In 2012, a friend from Reaper Industries offered me a bunch of isk to get myself back into the game and I took it, purchased a couple of toons and left them training.

It wasn't until late 2013 and the original colleagues re-joined EvE that I picked up the reins again but it was short lived and I needed to find a new home. I found myself in Southern Cross and the corp then moved into Shadow Cartel. Had fun in low-sec fighting away. But it was in Shadow Cartel that I met a small British Corporation called HAX. If you don't know HAX, it's probably for the best. But if you do, you have my sympathies. They were a great group and I loved every minute in the corp. The team was strong and had an excellent mixture of skillset, including FCs, probers, wormholers and very capable small-gang PvPers and a heady amount of titans and super for its size. We fought through the Casino wars and had huge fun. Sadly, it all came to an end and the corp evaporated. One of the members, Jarack, created a corp called Nameless. and I followed him into NC. with the corp, which has largely lead me to where I am today. No big passion to PvP with the people around me, but a love for PvP and  a need to fly with good pilots.


8. Why are you leaving your current corporation and/or alliance? Please let us know what you did and didn't like about your previous home.
I want to PvP with a good group. I have known SNIGG for a long time and look up to their PvP capabilty. Side note: I forgot to mention that I know Taraas Enko from the HAX days, he's always been lurking in the murky Scottish Shadows.. I believe SNIGG has on offer what I'm looking for which Nameless. doesn't offer. I joined Nameless. in late 2016, there has been an increase in members. I stayed as I knew the CEO well and considered it home. Even if I rarely hit the F-keys. As the corp is in NC., it's easy for a big alliance to be an incubator for low-activity corps which otherwise wouldn't thrive in the "wild", so to speak. Given the lack inter-corp PvP operations or diversity of skillsets, I find myself not PvPing.

So here I am, applying to SNIGG for some fun.

 

9. Are you a shit disturber? Have you caused drama or headache to those around you? Be honest.
Bluntly, I'm not smart enough for it. So it's not the game I play. Also, I strongly dislike shit-stirring. I like fact, can't fuck that up.


10. Why are you trying to join Sniggerdly over other‚ less selective and easier cоrporatіons within Pаndemic Legion?
I am applying to SNIGG simply through recommendation to do so via Hedliner and Taraas. I spoke with both before applying and both recommended I apply, so here I am, applying to SNIGG.

If they think I'm a good fit, it's over to you guys to help in understanding if they're right or wrong. 


11. What ѕetѕ you apart from being yet another F1 pushing member in fleets? Give examples of you being useful and/or leading fleets; include logs or battle/after-action reports you might have written.
I'm a communicator. Coming from Nameless, it's often someone joining a fleet late or otherwise and they need information. They're often overlooked and it means they can't join in on the fun. I do my best in keeping people informed and to not ignore them or leave them left out.


12. Got any tears (griefing logs‚ instances оf scams, etc) to share?
Always get salty mail from kills. But I am happy to say that in my time I've contracted two Nyx's at zero value, when I should have charged for them...


13. What games other than Eve do you play? Feel free to lіnk your Steаm account if you feel comfortable doing ѕo.
PubG, Fallout 4 and my wife. It's a simple gaming diet, but it's got all the digital vitamins I need.


14. Do you poѕt on Eve-related websites (Reddit‚ FHC, Zulu, EN24/TMC cоmments sectіons)? If so, link your profile/post history.

I do not

How would you describe your sponsors charisma?

Also can you format your app a bit better just looking at its hard to tell what is a question and what is your answer as the white and cream blend together.

Your formatting kinda sucks. You don't give links to your killboard or an eveboard. You don't even bother listing out any alts you have (I get not listing spy alts but come one) then we get to the actual questions, which you either don't answer or seem to half ass it. 

 

 

So first and foremost from me, is like to see you go back and fix your app. Write me a story on how you got here, what your favorite thing to do is, your favorite fight. I want to get to know who you are and right now all I've got is what corps you've been in. 

 

When you've finished fixing the app I have some additional questions for you:

 

1. What is your favorite meal to cook? 

 

2. Theorycraft a fleet assault frig, a solo armor roaming ship, and a battleship designed to fight in nullsec. 

 

3. What's the story/stories behind the two nyxs you gave away? 

 

P.S. you might want to fix the name of the corp you're applying to at the top....

My sponsors Charisma is hard to capture.. He's from the internet, so aside from the usual quirks, what else would you like to know?
And I've tried to format the app a bit better. Weirdly I wrestled with the formatting last night and got no-where. So made a bit more of a concerted effort with it this morning. But now I've got painful spacing issues.

hmmm...

I know Arestes from HAX. I had no issues with him. But, HAX. was also super chill and didn't ask much of their members. Snigg does, so you should definitely put more effort into the applications questions and the separate questions other people ask of you. 

Only question I have is are you going to vouch Jarack or Jarack's old crew in here when you get your chance? Cause Jarack is a huge piece of shit. A lot of his friends? Huge pieces of shit. This question goes beyond my issues with him.  People in here aren't going to stand that level of toxicity. 

 

Outside of that, I'm inclined to +1 if you're going to be active and stuff. If you post Killboards, that will be a big indicator and helpful for you to sell yourself to others here.

It's good to see  to see that you are putting lots of effort into the app and really thinking about your answers to questions.

 

Looking at Q6. You initially said hedliner has a list and then we called you  out on that you gave us slightly more detail saying you would be bringing a handful of FAX and dread alts aswell as a list of ships you will be bringing to the corporation. While you failed to even answer the original question listed in as you haven't given killboard links to your combat toons or skillsheets.

 

Q11) I'm more inclined to think your quick tongue is a detriment to the fleet.

This was a recent shitpost pulled from reddit "Hedliner isn't cut out for leadership. He has the charisma of a cold bowl of oatmeal." do you agree/disagree or is there any better analogy that represents his charisma/personality and why? Do you have any advice for headliner as you have known him for 10 years so he can be compared to hot oatmeal at least?

Overman! Been a while. I recall that you & Jarack had a disliking for eachother. Hope you’re doing well! To answer your question: No.

 

Bensen - don’t lose focus that I’m asking to play a computer game with people, not tender for a government contract.

Why should we take your app seriously if you don't?

 

Also a few questions:

 

Can you please expand this: What was your most memorable fight? Be thorough!

@Arestes will you be coming back to answer anymore questions?

 

tbh it's a bit disrespectful to your vouch to have him put his name out there, for you to just not bother replying.

All,

 

Work has taken an upward spike in activity which has dragged me from the PC. Apologies for the lack of response.

 

Additionally, I apologise for being a douche in my responses. Am currently in NC. and the some applications attract troll or shitposts and they're often only posted by someone who enjoys that but it has no bearing on the actual application. As such, I had "answered" the questions and thought that I'd completed the task. But really my answers were responses and the responses to this post are trying to pull more information to get to understand who I am.

 

I will answer everything this evening, along with a final edit on my application, to help evaluate if I'm suited for SNIGG.

 

Best,

 

Arestes

OK, here goes;

1 - Fave meal to cook is a Roast Chicken, with Roast potatoes and honey glazed parsnips & carrots. And an excessive amount of gravy.

 

2a - The AF. First off; offline the Salvager. It's placed there as a heat sink for overloading the guns... When offlined, the fit fits,, just.

I went with more speed on the AF over tank. The dual prop mod lends itself well to running a scrambler to help keep tackle held-down.

 

The Solo Armor BS; Again, offline the salvager.

40WhnJJ.png

Opted for increased tank with the rigs and maxamise on the lovely rep bonus the Hyperion offers. Also some cheeky web-drones as they're always unexpected, helps catch un-suspecting tackle.

 

The 0.0 Battleship;

HQJ7QwC.png

Because, who doesn't love a Vindicator ?

 

Two Nyx's

This one is really dull, but I'm so used to contracting stuff between my own characters at Zero value, I ended up contracting one to someone at ZERO value. Clearly I need to fuck up twice to learn my lesson as I repeated the same trick about six months later to someone else.

This is proof as to why I'm not a shit-stirrer, I'm just not smart.

Arestes is a good dude I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him in real life a couple of times he’s a nice guy to be around and has been very helpful to me ingame from building my Vanquiser which I paid in full up front (he could have took my isk and ran) to spotting me isk when I needed it. I believe he’s pulled this app back with his recent adjustments so it’s a +1 from me

**fits snip**

FYI you no longer need to place salvagers to act as heat sinks, empty slots work in the same way.

 

  • With your enyo fit why do you have blasters and then a point fitted? Was that supposed to be a scram?
  • Could you should me your favourite shield ship for solo/small gang stuff (I just noticed all the fits you linked were armour)

 

I've liked the renewed energy keep it up  :)
