APPLICANT: LindDiesel
« on: June 13, 2021, 03:41:46 pm »
1) Please tell us a bit about when and how you started playing EVE, what you have done so far, your corp history and a little bit about yourself in real life. This is your chance to give us an impression of who you are, not just as a character but also as a person

Started in 2010 as a miner. Back in the days when PLEX were 323m ISK for a month's gameplay and a Hulk and an Orca could rake it in. My time to play has always waxed and waned around work, but in the periods I've had a lot more time I've enjoyed getting deeper into all the different walks of activity EVE has to offer. I was either solo or very small corps doing mainly PvE stuff until 2013 when I joined AIR and started getting into PvP - some of the best times I've ever had in EVE were my early days in fleets in an active Corps in a lively Alliance. It added another layer of required dedication too though - Move Ops, extensive doctrines, late night pings, POS bashes/ defenses, Alliance & Corps weekly briefings - all good stuff until 2015 when work ramped up again and I left the Corps and went back to low intensity, less frequent PvE. I rejoined them in 2019 but World War Bee and less time to play from Aug 2020 onwards had me back out of the Corps.

Been on a break from the game now since Nov 2020 and looking for pastures new for this summer. Never been an ace at PvP, so would like to break it down a bit more outside of 300-man blob fleets with huge lag. And also want a bit more relaxed atmosphere around it rather than feeling like I'm letting the side down when I can't make the 02:00 ping during the weekdays. Through all the years, I've always been drawn back to EVE as a main interest (versus other MMO games) because of the depth of the game and the lack of 'instruction booklet' - there's a challenge and an involvedness I really enjoy. And it's basically the much enhanced, present day version of Elite which I used to love on a BBC Micro when I was a kid!

In RL I'm a Husband & Dad - two kids; ex-military now turned Consultant; ex-motorbike rider that misses the saddle when the smell of warm tarmac comes back each summer. Live in the Midlands near Milton Keynes.


2) In order to proceed with your application, you must select the your timezone for your personal play time - check only one.

EVE TIME 16:00-00:00  <----- THIS ONE


 

                                               


4) How would you classify your PVP skills in EVE? What level of PVP experience do you have? A short, one or two sentence answer is fine.

Intermediate across all aspects - offensive, defensive & supportive (cap, armour, shield) roles; High Sec through Null Sec


5) Please provide a killboard link for all your PVP characters that gives an accurate representation of your PVP activity. Remember we are not looking for elite PvPers only those willing to start (and join a fight)

https://zkillboard.com/character/1411539818/


6) Where did you hear about Fun inc / EBWF? In particular, what prompted you to apply?

Spotted on reddit and the EVE Online forums. Stands out because of 1. sustained and recent activity; and 2. multiple channels for comms with Discord being quick and most convenient


7) Please list any characters in FUN inc / EBWF that you know or may have spoken to

Oliadar Shakiel & Scopique - just brief chats for now to get some initial info, but intend to join a few fleets over the coming days to get a better feel for the Corps.


8 ) Why didn't you answer Question 3 ?

I did - it's up there between Questions 2 & 4. Black text upon black background, with selection function disabled. Had me scratching my head for a while, but not impossible to do with a bit of thought ... :D

Ha! Well-played Sir!

Nice guy to talk to, seems like a good fit to me. Let's meet in a fleet or two so we get to know each other. :-)

Looks good +1. Although I'd suggest coming on a couple of fleets before committing!

Cheers guys.

Enjoyed the Kitchen Sink antics last night, although was in the first wave that bit the dust! Can easily live with losing a 50m Retribution for almost 300m worth of kills though  8)

Need to get a complement of doctrine fits lined up in Jita so I can re-ship faster...
