Wish I could've made that but it was a bit too early for me. There's always next time and, hopefully, some Corporate fleets coming up.
Giant Bomb Corporation and Community - New duders welcome
I am Lehovron in the game. I like to blow shit up.
I played eve for a couple of months for the first time in 2010... got sucked into a small corporation that could get something going with like 5-7 people once a fortnight and that got boring kinda fast. So, hoping for more stupid stuff happening this time around :)
Hi bombers, i have been playing eve on and off for probably 7-8 years or so. I'm thinking it would be fun to join your ranks since I'm mostly roaming w-space alone in a stealth bomber. Although I'm always loyal to corp/alliance i cant say i earn my iskies in a very honest way.. I'm therefore wondering if a wh pirate would be welcome? Hell, someone might even be interested in a nuclear submarine course ;)
Tonight's activites from my perspective:
Recently, we were declared war upon by a corporation named "i do whats i want to do". The only kills in this war so far had been one Nikita Romeo consistently taking out our defenseless miners, doing their pacifist day's work. This, we knew, we could not abide.
Earlier in the day, a small t1 frigate roam went out to test the waters, and were annihilated. Our enemy was not weak. Our enemy was not stupid.
Later in the evening, the call went out. We were to form a bait fleet, with miners in one system, and a fighter wing in the next. The plans were laid, and Nikita did come near, but it was known he has at least 1 alt character that is not in the corporation and as such does not appear as a war target to us. He seemed to know the trap was laid. We attempted a chase, with mining ships leading the way to hopefully attract his attention. This did not work, and he claimed a few lives (including my own) as we tussled across various systems, being stretched thin by his devious maneuvers. Those killed hopped in new ships and returned to the fray.
It was then, I noticed a change in the fleet. We began to work as a unit, telling each other where we were at any time, and where the target was spotted. We adapted to his tactics, and instead of all bumbling forward in a direction, we fanned out, and waited for backup upon contacting the enemy. As we coalesced into a real fighting force, we nipped at his heels and nearly destroyed him once. He escaped to a station and admitted to us, he was "in panic mode on that one."
He continued to drag us along system to system. We ambushed him outside stations; He kited us, re-docked, undocked and warped away. We brawled him at gates; He burned his afterburners and jumped through, bouncing from planet to station to stargate. As he jumped through one gate, I loaded in and saw him burning away from the gate, about 30km out. I didn't think anyone else was through the gate, and I considered my options. I knew he was trying to bait a smaller engagement where he could pop one or two of us, then run away again. But the whole wing was coming through the gate in about 15 seconds, due in no small part to our recent cohesion. I sprinted off the gate and feared the fleet would arrive before I could scramble his warp drives, but then I heard the most glorious thing in the Eve universe.
"He's fighting me. I've got him scrambled." LASSIE YOU BEAUTIFUL SONOFABITCH. As I had sat cloaked at the gate weighing my options, one Lassie Tivianne was already burning at the enemy fearlessly. As I arrived with a second point, the fleet jumped into the system, and all bets were off. Nikita was a fucking pitbull. He flew that ship so hard I couldn't stay on him using normal orbit and had to manually turn to keep the damn scrambler in range. Our net closed, webs and scramblers and disruptors tightening the vice. He wanted the fuck out, but KITE CO. SPACE TRUCKING SAID NO. His shields and armor and structure fell, filling crimson bars as his chances faded. Our mission was complete. It was such an intense battle, we even forgot to scoop the loot for about 10 minutes.
Fuck yes, space truckers. Truck the fuck on.
@kinggiddra: Hey Tomiko Kawase, I signed up for a trial under your name and just upgraded it to a full account! I really like the game and was going to start playing it regardless but figured I would help someone out in the progress. Someone from the corp told me to post here saying you would hook me up! I normally dont ask for hand outs so dont go overboard! :P my name is between buried in game just msg me whenever
@mrklorox: I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but there is no benefit for EVE online players to have DUST players in the corp, other than to add to the confusion of the corp chat and have a much greater chance of having Intel posted in the corp channel, such as capital ship movements and fleet positions, leaked into a free to play game that anyone with a PS3 can make a character on.
You are more than welcome to hang out in the "giantbombing" channel and interact with the community there though, that's where a good part of the conversations take place anyway. I would recommend seeking out a dedicated DUST corp if you're going to join a corp with a DUST character at the moment, or alternatively make a GB DUST corp and do it that way.
Last night (GMT) I had my first ever real PvP moment in EVE online. I played EVE some in 2010, but was in a much smaller corp of friendly people but we just never got anything going togheter and eventually I just got bored.
But this. Holy shit. I don't know how many of "us" there where chasing "shinobi shadow" all over Cat (yeah, there is a system named Cat). All I know is my pulse was what I used to get in a really intense game of StarCraft 2 as I was warping from point to point, half hoping he would be there so I could scramble him for the rest of the fleet and half hoping he wouldn't be there for fear that I would just crap my pants. At points I forgot to breathe.
I think I can see why (some) people play EVE more clearly now, and will defiantly be sticking around for a while this time around.
I bought this game a while back when it was on sale on steam. I played for a bit on my own, it got a bit boring after a while. Would joining a corporation make my experience more fun? Are there specific divisions I can join, like mining division or the military division?
@nikoran: The community and the people is what makes this game fun, so joining a corp might help you have fun with the game. We don't have any divisions per say, but we do have people who join together in fleet to go out to mine or people who go on PvP roaming fleets. It will make EVE more fun, anything is better with friends and fellow Giant bombers.
Well patrick convinced me to get back into EVE. Probably gonna be joining the Giantbomb channel if that is cool :) I'm Cat Aylet in game! One thing I've learnt so far, just cause you managed to scan down a cool signature, doesn't mean you should charge headlong into it...:P
Patrick's coverage of the game and some of the stories one of my colleagues at work has told me about the game have convinced me to try it out, ive had a good experiance with the GB community playing The old Republic and Neverwinter so looking forward to getting online with you all.
Alright so I finally did it. I just finished making my guy, Rucks Wardent (I'm terrible with names), a few minutes ago. I have to see what this is all about at least once. My application to Kite Co. will be coming in as soon as I figure out how to do that.
I played EVE a little bit about 2 years back - and have for a long time wanted to get back into EVE.
Would there be any activity in the Corp. for Europeans? Or are ya'll based in the US, hence making it a bit hard to team up beside in the weekends?
