The Tuskers

It is hard to believe, but I've been a Tusker for eight months now. Time sure does fly when you are having fun. Sadly, for me, these have also been the most difficult eight months in my own personal life. Lots of changes, horror, potentially devastating crap that has to be dealt with. Change sucks but it is also the natural course of life. Adapt or die.

I started this post that way, because it just happens to be the best thing about this group of strange people. Adapt or die. Fiercely independent. Whatever it takes. Those are the types of word combinations you'd be forced to use, but what does that really mean?

It is hard to describe to people that don't already know. Being a Tusker isn't like being in any other corporation I've ever been a part of. There are times when you wouldn't even know you were in a corporation and times when help arrives from out of the black, times when we are spread out across the universe and times when we gang up to fight. Time to be yourself with exactly zero pressure, except to do well in whatever it is that you do. Incredible amounts of support or none at all. Being a Tusker is kinda like being in one of those "Choose Your Own Adventure" books. You choose. How involved do you want to be? What choices do you want to make?

Granted, this lifestyle isn't for everyone. You need a strong spirit of independence mixed with a powerful dose of solidarity to the ideals of what being a Tusker brings with it. If attacking a six man gang in your lone frigate sounds like a good idea to you, then you might be the kind of person that flourishes in this kind of strange environment. Or not.

I don't want this to sound like a group of individuals who just happen to share a Corporation, because that isn't it either. In fact, the Corp has a very strong sense of community. From the amazing amount of information and debate on the forums, to our shared sense of what makes Eve fun, to the over powering sense of wanting to do better. For yourself and for the Corporation.

You can see that from our killboard.

It doesn't take a ton of skill points to be a Tusker, it doesn't take fancy ships. It just takes a butt load of "want to" as my Father would say. It isn't the kind of place for everyone, which is why we don't want everyone.

My own play time has been extremely limited lately, but I thought it was time to plug my corporation.
