The Recruiting Trail

 Well, as much as we've always tried to avoid it -NT- is finally on the recruiting trail.  Check out our post at http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1555012 and at least give us a bump if you aren't interested.

Missed Oppurtunity

  Yesterday I was bored so I decided to do a little random flying around in my trusty Nemesis.  I managed to find an active group of pilots who were gearing up for something and puttering around in front of a station.  Obviously the battleship heavy fleet didn't have much to fear from a single stealth bomber but I did think I had a shot at popping a few of the smaller ships stuck between battleships.  I picked out a little flycatcher who was nice and far from the un-dock and looked to be stuck between some Abadons and unable to warp.  I setup a safespot on one side of the blob and worked my way to the other so that I could align...bomb...and warp away without too much trouble.  I successfully caught the group off guard as no one even bothered trying to lock me but I wasn't able to kill a single damn thing despite getting damage notices on every ship in the system.  In retrospect I should have locked the Flycatcher and target painted him.  Maybe I should have even thrown a torpedo or two at him prior to warping out.  While I hate to have missed out on the kill I am always happy to have a successful bomber run because there are very few things more thrilling in EvE then using a SB.  The run needs to be setup perfectly so that you are aligned to warp out, you must time your warp properly so you aren't too early (no detonation) or too late (locked and pointed), and you are in a paper then boat that relies on the first two things being done right as it's tank.  Always fun :)

Say what now?!?


I've mentioned this before but it's clear CCP knows that the greatest marketing tool EvE has is the player community and player generated content.  Despite that fact CCP has seemingly pursued a general goal of limiting the strength of player content in favor of their own over the past year or more.  Now it seems they are asking us to provide more examples of the content they aren't exactly helping us create in order to further their marketing.

I want EvE to succeed because this is really the only game I play and its awesome; so I'm not saying the community shouldn't help promote it.  BUT: I do think its kind of a slap in the face to a player-base who just united against content they didn't want. Now they ask them to promote the part of the game they used to have.  If CCP was a person I would probably advise they visit a doctor about their unusual mood swings.

Night Thiefs is Looking for PvP Pilots

  Night Thiefs is currently recruiting active PvP pilots.  If you are looking for a true PvP home with plenty of freedom to handle your business however you like; then come give Night Thiefs a try!  With an permanent invite only policy we are only looking for a few fresh faces which we will be interviewing before accepting.  You don't have to be the best player in EvE, you just have to be ready and willing to join in some hot and steamy PvP.  Of course a limited API will be mandatory.

The blah blah:
-We do PvP and do it well, that's about it.
-We don't care what you do with your free time (in or out of EvE) as long as you can take a joke and like seeing other players go boom.
-The only game play guidance we provide is expert advice on request and designation of main areas of operation.

Mail "Meatay" in game or speak to another Night Thief to discuss joining and plan a short interview.
