How to apply to the Tuskers

Postby Ka Jolo » Wed Aug 20, 2008 3:30 am


About The Tuskers

The Tuskers are a pirate corporation, pure and simple. Lowsec piracy is our passion, but we're broad-minded enough to consider almost any type of PvP - if there are explosions to be had, we're interested!

What we can offer you is a home in New Eden, with a mature family of like-minded pilots beside whom you can fight, chat, and laugh. The Tuskers isn't an elite or high-skillpoint corporation, but we do have some great pilots; come roam with us, and help us build a reputation of excellence. We recently participated in our first Alliance Tournament (AT XII) and proudly placed 4th, being the only team to take a match from the eventual Champions.

Tuskers are expected to be self-sufficient; we're a small corporation without a great deal of infrastructure, and pilots need to be able to fund their own PVP whether that's through ransoms, selling loot, trading, ratting, running missions, or selling GTCs. Tusker pilots should also be active; we're not a hardcore corporation, but if you're not going to be around for a while we expect you to let us know.

This is a family-friendly corporation, so please don't apply if you are fond of foul language, vulgar conversation, or posting "adult" images on the forums. We may be pirates, but we're not griefers; we don't scam or talk smack, we treat our opponents with respect, and we always keep our word. We're proud of our reputation for honouring ransoms, and we expect you to do the same.

Recruitment Process

1. Register an forum account by following this link. Please ensure your username is the same as your character name. You will need to provide a limited API key.
2. Copy and paste the the questions below and post it here as a new thread, with the title being your character name.
3. We will eve-mail you a short Q&A about about your prior Eve experience. You can reply either via evemail, in your recruitment thread or in a voice interview on Mumble, any of these options are perfectly acceptable.
4. You will be asked for a full API key for all of your accounts.

Once you've submitted your application, you should hear from one of our Directors within a few days. Our Directors are often quite busy, so If you change your mind after submitting your application please let us know - if we notice you've joined or applied to another corporation, we'll assume you're no longer interested.

Once we've let you know that your application has been accepted here, feel free to apply in game. We're based in Hevrice       (top station), but you're free to live wherever you like. If you need help moving in, let your recruiter know and we'll help you out with our corporate logistics. We'll also help you settle in by introducing you to the rest of the crew.

If you have any questions about recruitment or want to discuss your application, feel free to contact any of the characters listed below or ask in our Public Channel:

CEO: Suleiman Shouaa (EU)
Directors: IK Thel (US), Jaxley (EU) and Johnny Twelvebore (EU)
Public channel: The Tuskers Public Channel

We look forward to flying with you!

Recruitment Proforma

Copy and paste everything below this line into your application thread

1. How old are you, and where are you from (include your timezone)?

2. Why do you want to join the Tuskers? How did you hear about us?

3. Please confirm that you've read The Tusker Code and will abide by it.

4. To prove you've got what it takes to be a solo PVPer, please link five solo kills outside of high security space that you've gotten within the last six months including two kills against a more powerful ship class than your own (for example frig vs cruiser, or t1 frig vs t2/faction frig). Fights where you took on multiple ships of your own class (e.g. cruiser vs 2x cruiser) and came away with multiple kills also count. This isn't as hard as it sounds - if you'd like advice on how to get the necessary kills, drop by The Tuskers Public Channel in game and we'll help you out.

5. Do you have Mumble installed or are willing to install it, as well as having a functioning microphone?
(Voice communication is essential for effective combat and is used whenever two or more Tuskers team up. Our program of choice is Mumble which is free to download and use)

6. The Tuskers is a corporation for mains - the character you're applying with should not be the alt of another active character. We're OK with you using an alt corporation or having alts in another corporation (for example, to make ISK), but you shouldn't have alts in another player corporation without getting permission from a director. Please confirm that the character you're applying with is your main, and let us know about any alts you may have in other corporations (alt corporations or otherwise).

7. You need to have vouches from at least 2 active Tuskers as we like to meet our applicants ingame. This is simply to maximize the chances of you finding the corporation a good fit and vice-versa. You don't need to have known Tuskers in your past EvE life. Feel free to come to our active systems, fight against us, with us, join our public roams, jump on our comms and the vouches will take care of themselves. We have a private channel for applicants and others we fly with regularly to help facilitate this, ask any Tusker for an invite.
