This post features Soro Harbon, now a member of Supreme Mathematics - our new WH Corp!
• Tell us a little about your background in Eve
First played in 2008 for about a year, mining and missioning in HS. Spent the first 4 months without speaking to hardly anyone and learning lessons the hard way. Joining a corp was a revelation, met some great guys and had a lot of fun but eventually got a bit tired of the game, sold my characters and left.
Started Soro as a missioner, missioned with him until I had enough standings for jump clones with an NPC corp, and basic BC skills. After that it was wh's all the way. Solo'd a C1/HS, ran a C2/C1/HS with my then Corp Voodoo Children, and moved on to a stint with sleeper social club in a c5/c3 taking part in a number of sieges and fleet fights as well as making silly isk on C5 capital escalations. Lack of regular log in time led to frustration as I was never on to see any action so moved on to a stint with RVB, and learnt a whole new EVE! Great fun finding out how to lose ships and fly frigs in generally small gangs. Instant on action every time you logged in. That paled after a while, tried FW and even went out to Null for a few weeks but not for me, so I found myself at a loose end with very little log in time but struggling to find a home. Out of Rixx's departure from tuskers grew SF, who advertised a casual attitude to logging in and I thought I would give the pirate life a try.

• What is it that you enjoy the most about your corp?
FUN - log on, choose a ship, find some trouble! Always some good banter in corp chat and great pilots to fly with from whom I've learnt a lot.
• What have you learned since joining?
Follow Joffy's advice exactly. I remember him telling me off for nerfing the tristan fit he gave me by not fitting a T2 EANM because I didn't have CA1 and CA2 fitted. Followed his advice and have loved flying the tristan ever since. As my confidence grew have tinkered with fits and flying different ships. I blow up lots of ships, some I'm piloting and some not but I always really enjoy the fluid nature of small frig warfare whether solo or in a fleet.
• Do you have any advice for players looking to start PvPing?
Do what Joffy tells you! You won't go wrong.
• What are your goals for yourself, or for your corp?
Knock the rust off my WH skills to help establish MATH, do some WH hunting and kill some sleepers.
• Do you have a funny Eve story you could share?

• What is your favorite thing about Rixx? (lol)
While Rixx espouses a casual style of gameplay and leads by example he also puts a tremendous amount of work in behind the scenes, along with his directors, to keep SF pilots informed, provide tools for communication like the forum/blog, does amazing artwork, and promotes the fun of playing the game to a wider community through events like the FFA.
Its been great to be small part of the journey so far and hope to continue down the road with A Band Apart for a long time yet.
Thanks Soro for taking part in this series. Supreme Mathematics is a part of the Band Apart family, including Stay Frosty and Lucifer's Hammer - and they are currently wtf pwning WHs all over the place! So get those API verified apps in and jump into the hole with MATH!
