(A) Do you know anyone in BOS that may remember you?

Please post their names:

Suas... I'm sure he called me a dick head on one or two occasions. I remember a bunch of people; Sniper FC, Apophiss Incarnate, Psychotic Smurf, Axandrias Darkstar. Don't know if they remember me, it's been a long time

People you know:


(B) Is there anyone in BOS that may be willing to vouch for you?

Don't think so after this long.

( Please note, a vouch may enhance your application but is no guarantee of acceptance. Vouches MUST be able and willing to confirm your ingame identities to the recruiters)


The person (s) you have spoken with to Vouch:


2. If you don’t know anyone, how did you hear about Black Omega?

Used to be a member up until about 2015/16.



3. Tell us about your time in Eve (alliances, corps etc).

Been playing on and off since about 2007, usually for a year or two, then burn out then come back. Been in a few corps who've been part of nullsec alliances over the years. Crap at solo PvP but I can follow instructions, so I'm usually alright in a fleet until the FC gets head-shotted and then I go to pieces.

4. Tell us a bit about yourself as a person.

I tend to gravitate back to EVE during periods of my life when I am suffering with crippling depression, although I don't usually realise it until afterwards.

5. What is your main TZ? What hours do you usually play in?

GMT/BST. Usually in the evenings between about 8pm and midnight.

6. List all of your characters below including; how many SP (to the nearest million), what their role is and links to their killboard.

Only bigsid has ever really got involved in PVP... the others have lost the odd ship while ratting or doing exploration, nothing noteworthy.

bigsid, 70M SP, main, PVP focussed, https://zkillboard.com/character/480447099/
ech310n, 55M SP, main alt, trade, logistics, PVE focussed
Cai Feenicks, 34M SP, ratting, PVE, cyno alt
Randy Stumpchafe, 30M SP, ratting, PVE, cyno alt
Lieutenant Angerfist, 26M SP, ratting, PVE, cyno alt
BIack Frog 2M SP, Cyno Alt
Cpt Falcon Punch 2M SP, Scout
Megan Adoulin 1M SP, Trade
Bethan Sweet, 1M SP, Trade
Angus Mecoatup 1M SP, Trade
Fennec Tivianne 1M SP, Trade
Robin Kuntz 0M SP, Recruitment Scamming...
Banksey 0M SP, Nothing



7. Do you have any capitals? If so, what and which character.

Chimera on bigsid...pretty much just a suitcase


8. If no, why not?


9. Do you have any Supercapitals/Titans? If so, what and which character.

No


10. What type of gameplay do you enjoy the most?

The day after the roam that went on until 4AM on a weeknight, trying to get a HAC back from Cobalt Edge on my own.

11. Do you have any FC experience? If yes please elaborate

Tiny bit from brave newbies where it was like the blind leading the blind. Occassionally welped a kitchen sink / talwar fleet into a bunch of HACs for fun.

12. If no to the above, are you interested?

I would like to learn, but I am exceptionally shit at it.

13. How do you make ISK ingame?

Does RMT count?

14. If you were an inch inside your mum, and your dad an inch inside you… which way would you push to get out?

Me and my dad both have micro-penises (runs in the family) so this would be physically impossible.

15. SCENARIO 1: You log in and not much is happening....what do you do?

Light a content cyno in a nullsec pipe and see what pops out.

16. SCENARIO 2: Someone calls you a faggit in comms....what do you do?

Send them dick pics of my micro penis whilst spamming them ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) constantly in private chat.

17. Can you provide your favorite solo PVP fit and explain how you would fly it?

Medium Anti-EM Screen Reinforcer II
Medium Anti-Thermal Screen Reinforcer II
Medium Core Defense Field Extender I


Republic Fleet Warrior x5


I wouldn't fly it so much as park it next to a gate and wait for nerds to attack me. Isn't great for Solo to be fair.

18. Are there any corp/alliance you could provide? Examples being; scouting, wormhole mapping, running cynos etc?

Is the word 'services' missing from this question? Scouting yes. Back rubs, yes.

Any interest in becoming better as an independent pilot? Solo/Small group skills transfer very well to more specialised fleet roles.

Of course, I quite like small gang stuff. I think being good at solo has a lot to do with being really knowledgeable about all the different ships and fittings, knowing which fights you should take and which you shouldn't. It's a lot to try to remember. Coming back after not playing for so long, I forgot how ricidulous the learning curve is in this game, but I'm slowly getting up to speed.

lets get to the important questions straight off, Beer- Draught, hand pull or bottled what colour and temperature should beer be served at? - if your Murican and drink that yellow piss you are exempt from answering this question

The fact you're asking this, I would assume it needs to be flat, warm and hand pulled? Personally, it depends on the situation. I am partial to a few real ales, but there are time when I like a bottle of generic euro-fizz lager (especially if its hot out).

I guess it depends who the FC is and my fleet role. If I'm scouting then just a nice cup of tea. If I'm logi, tennents super.

Looking back, what do you think burned you out?

What would need to be different in order for you to not get burned out?

I'm not sure I used to really get burned out as such. My job has me travelling around a lot and I used to have to spend a lot of time working away and staying in hotels. So I'd end up not really playing much except on the weekends and it felt like a waste of money subbing a bunch of accounts to hardly ever use them. I still have the same job so still have to work away, but it doesn't happen as often and when it does it's usually just Tues-Thurs now so I tend to be at home more. Plus, if I did end up being away for a long time, I could just drop back to Alpha for a while.
