I don't want everyone that plays Eve to become a Pirate. That would be silly and rather devastating to the game we love. (That is actually a rather debatable, and yet politically correct, statement. In point of fact, Eve would probably be insanely awesome if everyone was a Pirate! But that is a topic for another post.)
Why do something boring when you can choose something not boring? Why grind when you can dance? I'm shaking my head as I write this part, because I can't believe I have to keep saying it. Yesterday I had no time for Eve. This weekend was one of the first really good weather weekends of the Spring, so it was time for outdoor work. Especially yesterday. I managed to eek out about 20 minutes last night in Eve.
In 20 minutes I got into a Stay Frosty gang, managed to get into four respectable fights and get into a solo match Slicer Vs Slicer. Which I won. I challenge anyone south of zero to imagine 20 minutes as well spent as that. More than likely, you wouldn't even bother logging on. In that twenty minutes I also let two new pilots into Corp, talked with my Director's about the AT schedule, and fought an eight man gang that had a Falcon with them.
Believe it or not, I am not dissing any other play-style. I do however, consider myself a sort of Ambassador for the best play-style that Eve has to offer. That is my opinion, and it may be my opinion alone. I'm ok with that. Let others defend their chosen field, my intention is to promote a certain type to play-style that I happen to enjoy immensely. One that I honestly believe is superior, fun, and more rewarding.
And certainly, the best place to enjoy that play-style is with the scum-sucking idiots of Stay Frosty. Can there be a better example of casual lunacy than the constantly undocking, fighting and yarr loving nut bags I get to log into each and every day? And, even better, we have an entire Alliance of options to choose from now. So even if full-time piracy isn't your thing, you have other options. Fly with us part-time. And do something else the rest of the time.
Yes, this is yet another recruitment post. Get your butt into A Band Apart. Choose our pirate corp Stay Frosty, our WormHole Corp Supreme Mathematics, or our HIgh-Sec industry Corp Lucifer's Hammer. All of us fly together, support each other, and generally have a great time not being very serious at all. And we have some surprises in store in the coming weeks that are going to be extremely exciting.
210 pirates is not enough. We still have room for more. We still have room for you.
Why join the Navy, when you can be a Pirate?
