Pastures New?

As quickly as it started it’s over. 

The corporation that I joined up with great hopes of learning about and succeeding in wormhole space is closing. Now I am disappointed, but the only reason our CEO has decided to shut up shop is because of a demanding new real life job, which you can’t hold against anybody - so there are no hard feelings!  I have really enjoyed it so far, so I fully intend to move back into W-Space as soon as I can.

K-space already feels claustrophobic; there are far too many people and I’m desperate to get back into the dark back alleys of Eve, but I’m going to take my time.  I am going to look around for a corp the really suits me, and that I think will offer me a new home for the foreseeable future.  I have often put little thought into choosing a corp, and that is reflected heavily by my employment history. So this time, I’ll do it properly.

For me there are several key questions that must be answered:

What do I want from a new corp?

The most important thing for me with any corp I join is that it must be relaxed. Now, don’t confuse relaxed with lazy or un-motivated, for me relaxed means passionate, dedicated, yet understanding. I also want my new corp to have patience for the new guy which I still am.  I don’t have the skill points, ISK or experience of the majority of wormhole players – but I am very eager to learn.

How big should the corp be?

This is difficult for me to answer.  After being a part of two ‘startups’ I am convinced I want to join up with an established group this time.  I would like to be surrounded by active players, but I also don’t want to be lost in a crowd – I like the idea of a tight knit team, not a blobby rabble. What do you consider as optimum numbers?

What class of wormhole?

I feel I can survive very well in a c4 > c3 static. So I ‘think’ that’s what I am going to aim for.  I don’t think I am ready in any way shape or form for a higher class wormhole, but it’s something to work towards!

What are my ideal corp’s objectives?

I don’t want to join a carebear corp, but equally I don’t have the trader/industrial alts to supply me with a decent supply of isk to keep me in ships. So the corp I join must strike the balance between PvE for isk generation and PvP for isk destruction. 

So to summarize: My current corp is closing down; I’m looking for a new one!

Thanks for reading, and as always – I appreciate any comments you may have!



  1. What can you fly, what timezone are you in?

  2. I fly a Proteus/Deimos, most things with blasters - I like blasters! I am from the UK, and mostly play between 1500 - 2200 eve time.

    I have an alt that can fly guardian with level V logi - but he can't fly much else at the moment.

  3. Contact me in game, you sound like a good fit for us.
