Shameless Recruiting Post

Towards the end of December of 2009 I downloaded and fell in love with EVE. I immediately decided that I wanted to be a pirate, and focus my efforts on PvP. That decision was the easy part. The devil was in the details of learning the ins and outs of my chosen profession and the art of PvP and null sec survival.

I started following Black Claw's blog, and the Open University of Celestial Hardship (OUCH) was brought to my attention. I applied to join, and the rest is history. :)

In all of my travels of New Eden, I have never found such a good group of pilots. There is a sense of camaraderie there, a incredible teaching/giving spirit, and the willingness to help out each other.

I learned, slowly but surely how to fight, how to die, and eventually how to start getting some kills. I learned how to survive in null sec, and how to work as a fleet. I cut my teeth as a fledgling FC, and eventually became a competent small gang leader. Along the way, I forged friendships with pilots who I will stay in contact with for the rest of my EVE life-time.

If any of you are interested in learning PvP, learning how to survive in null and low sec, or just simply interested in doing all of the above with a stellar group of pilots, I HIGHLY recommend OUCH to you.

They provide a free frigate program, so you can learn without laying your own isk on the line. Free classes, roams, and modules. There are all time-zones represented there, so there is always someone to fly with.

I recently left OUCH to pursue more advanced small gang warfare, but my heart will always be with that corporation.

It is one thing to promote a corp while you are in it, but when people will recommend a corp after they have moved on, that's when you know something good is going on there. :)

If you are interested in joining up (there are no minimum skill point requirements, nor any excluding factors of any kind), feel free to contact Black Claw or Alexia Morgan in game. Just shoot em a mail. Or you can join the open university channel at ouch-uni. Just poke your head in and ask questions, or just say hello. They will love to see you and talk with ya.

I sincerely hope you look into OUCH if you are interested, and if you do, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Good hunting, and fly dangerous.
