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!
