Tell us a bit about your RL self?
SoCal Mechanical Engineer - Plays D&D and M&M outside of EVE, GW2, and Warframe

What TZ do you play EVE the most?
West Coast USTZ

How many hours on average do you spend playing EVE per week?
I'm coming back from an extended break, but typically 20+ hours of gaming in a given week.

Tell us a bit about yourself and your corp history
After mucking about in starter corps, moved to w-space for quite some time. Decided to give lowsec a try and joined TRIF./SC for quite some time. Went afk and took a break for the last 2 years.

Why do you want to leave your current corp?
Pretty self explanatory really, to rejoin with SC after an extended break from playing EVE.

Do you know anyone who will vouch for you within Shadow Cartel?
I actually haven't thought to ask anyone, but most of the folks who I remember well are either leadership (because who doesn't remember leadership), and dudes from ROLO and TRIF.

What specifically made you want to apply to the corporation that you are applying to within Shadow Cartel?
Immortalis is one the ones who I interacted with most outside of TRIF while in SC.

What specifically made you want to be a part of Shadow Cartel?
My previous experiences with them. I'd like to do more of that.

Within SHDWC, we do not put up with drama, racism, shitposting to public places (reddit etc), posting porn in fleet/main channels, shitting up comms during a fleet, etc. Does this seem like something you would struggle with?
Nope. No issues here.

We are a pretty tight community who rely heavily on the use of voice comms (mumble & TS3), forums, and slack. Will you be online and participate?
Yes. No issues here.

What do you like doing the most and least in EVE (ie ship types, playstyles etc)?
Small to mid gang fleets. Subcaps strongly preferred. Destroyers, cruisers, and BCs for dicking around, but I still have a sweet spot in my heart for the bigger armor Mach fleets.

Please list all your characters on all your accounts and provide links to State how long you've had ownership of said characters. If you have characters that you for some reason need to kept secret‚ PM thе relevаnt infо to your recruiter when аsked to provide ESI.
I've owned all characters since their creations. I've listed the skillboards for the actually useful characters. If you really want the others, I can provide them too, but they're <5m SP each.
* Commander Freir (main)
* Ensign Freir (Jump Freighter Alt)
* Captain Freir (Logi, Carrier, and Triage)
* Warrant Officer Freir (useless character)
* Petty Officer Freir (useless character)
* Admiral Freir (This used to be my primary alt, but apparently I ripped all of the skills out of his head except for social skills. I'm pretty sure Gremk was trying to talk me into doing L5s when I did this, which in retrospect was a terrible idea.)
* Fleet Admiral Freir (PI alt)
* Lieutenant Freir (Jita alt)
* Vice Admiral Freir (cyno alt)
* Commodore Freir (Back before I took a break, I got this character started as a dread/titan pilot in case I ever bought one. If I somehow end up with a bunch of isk, I'll probably reactivate this account and inject this up. Currently only 6m SP.)
* Alice Rey (Was once intended to be a spy account, but never really got started, now a worthless character, inactive account)
* Alice Sirober (low SP wormhole diver, inactive account)

What's your PvP experience? Please provide a link to your main account's zKill.

Do you have alt account(s) for dread, links, triage, cyno, blops hunter, and/or eyes (JDC 5 required for anything with a jump drive)? If so, please list which you'll consistently bring to fleets.
I have alts for triage, cyno, and eyes currently. I'm a bit rusty multiboxing so I probably wouldn't drop triage and also focus on my main until I get back into the swing of things.

MG/HG slaves are constantly used within SHDWC... Do you plan to buy a set for important fleets?
I could've sworn I had a set still, but I can't fine mine, so I guess I'll have to buy them again.

Do you have a character that will assist scanning wormholes to help provide the alliance content?
I blame Gremk, for this, since Admiral Freir was the one who used to be able to do this. If necessary, I can reinject.

Do you have a character with Logistics 5 with Amarr, Caldari and Minmatar cruiser 5? Will you fly logi?
Captain Freir has Logi V, Amarr Cruiser V, and Minmatar Cruiser V, but only Caldari Cruiser III. Sure i'll fly logi.

What's your primary means of income?
Typically I just buy a plex if I need isk, but apparently Gremk talked me into setting up a character for L5s, so I guess that would be an option as well.

Following the previous question, we fly a lot of expensive and weirdly fit stuff. Are you able and willing to buy and keep these ships ready at all times? Getting ships for all of our major fleet will cost in the region of 10+ bil.
I've got about 20 bil right now, and never had an issue with having all the SC fleet ships in the past.

Please provide the following fits: your favorite solo fit, a fleet fit armor battleship, and a fleet fit T3 cruiser.
So I went to go pull my old fits from killboard deaths, and apparently balance passes have actually happened. Pretty much all my fits seem out of date.

Solo Fit: I liked this little dude for landing at 0 in plexes: though I wonder if the build is still up to date, or if theres some better options out there.

Fleet Armor Battleship: Looks like you guys are still using the same general concept for machs, but with one less tank slot in the lows, and an extra TBD slot in the mids:

T3 Cruiser: This is the closest I can find to what I remember being the dual web/paint bricked loki. It's got the general concept for prop mod, ewar in mids, highs are useless anyways, and full tank in the lows, but there's only 4 subsystems now, what is this madness?:

Sorry for the delayed response, busy days. What are you expecting from SC? The climate of the game has shifted quite a lot in the last two years, and since then we have had the USTZ fall a bit off. As far as coming back from the 2 year hiatus, why did you come back? Are you coming back to test the waters of the game? Boredom drove you back? Do you expect to keep playing or is this temporary?

To not entirely answer your question, my main reason for leaving was because I moved across the country after college, got a job and a girlfriend, all over a period of a year while with SC, and was too busy with life. All of the above has remained stable, and my life has finally settled down again, I just didn't expect it to take so long. I do intend to get back into the swing of things just as much as I used to play in the past, not to test the waters. I'd just go join some pubfleets if that were the case.

To your point about a lot changing in 2 years, yeah, I've been gathering as much in the last week, and filling in the missing pieces as best I can. The late night USTZ was always quiet anyways because the turbo-bears of SC would be crabbing, so even though theres less USTZ members, I would expect it'll usually be up to the couple of us actually interested in poking around to find content. That doesn't bother me at all. The other side of that is that I have a 9/80 job so I get every other Friday off, so I can sneak into EUTZ stuff too on the weekends and on every other Friday.

Thanks for the honest reply. Real life is always more important than any game and life moves faster than Eve. It is always best to have your priorities straight. We always welcome the independent minded, and even more-so welcome those willing to seek out and create more interest in the game and build camaraderie.

Can you please add your characters to the alliance tool ( under your account if you have not done so already so that we can do a proper background check?

I've added all 12. Let me know what else you'd like me to do.

I'm not seeing them in the alliance tool. Can you double check that you've added them?

I've double checked and I'm still seeing them there. I've just added myself to the "Recruits" group. I'm not sure if you intended for me to do that or not, since I technically haven't been recruited, but I noticed the description for this group was "The Users of this Group are auditable by Recruiters!" which seems to match your intent.

This is what I'm seeing:

It is working; I think you are correct in that I missed that recruit group tidbit.

Everything appears in order and I have not seen any dismay from your app from our peers. Please submit an app in-game and we'll get you sorted. Welcome back!

Honestly, you should not join this alliance. It is dead at basically all levels, and you will not enjoy playing EVE here.

Find an active group and have fun instead.
