I was the dude that went full on Nerd on the Interview Dumptruck. http://www.giantbomb.com/podcasts/what-drives-a-man-to-travel-thousands-of-miles-for/1600-475/ I really couldn't help myself with all the lingo, it's Fanfest so it's the hardcore of the hardcore so that was my mindset. Anyways, I want to let ya'll know that if you want to jump with both feet into the deep end of Eve Online that option is available to you.
The corporation I am in (Paxton Industries) is recruiting, and we are newbie friendly. Make no mistake by the name, we are a PVP Corporation, part of Gentleman's Agreement. We are Part of the ClusterFuckCoalition and offer all manner of PVP from solo, small gang, and including the largest fleet fights that you will see in Eve Online.
