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

I am 25 years old,, that is what I tell everyone even my wife and 5 kids. Actually (38)
Playing at +4 GMT living and working in Dubai, I do go back to the US on vacations and family visits Eastern Time Zone. I always do have a good PC or a laptop was even caught in Ohara airport playing eve on my 6 hour lay over no problem.

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

I guess a few years ago I heard about the Tuskers but I never really paid too much attention the name did come up with the alliance tournament and I was like damn these guys can play well I was very impressed to say the least but I never did see myself at that level and have been always wondering if I do have what it takes to be semi decent in eve.

However what has made me look back into the Tuskers was a small hit and run tactics from the Tuskers in catch where a group of Tusker stabbers chased an Orthurus from the alliance and he kept yelling on mumble to come save him. by the time we arrived he was raging and quit. We managed to get one of the Tusker guys only because that member was a little too focused on Orthurus loot happens to the best of us sometimes.

Anyways that small encounter got me interested.

3. What's been your EVE experience to date? In particular, what were your last few corporations/alliances; why did you join and leave them? Are there any other games that you play?

Eve is a sandbox that I love to explore all parts of it.. especially the PVP I started back in 2014 had 1 million SP to my name and joined up with FW Amarr for 2 reasons ,, 1 I was an Amarrian Pure blood 2 They were loosing to slaves and I wanted to do something about it I sank into FW green as can be got my first solo kill with a T1 coercer vs a T2 Catalyst and then Mac was born.

I managed to stay in FW until they won until the end first it was Huola we took that back I was so happy, then the entire warzone was ours and CCP gave me a medal that I am proud to show off to anyone.

After the war was over and people were hungry for fights some turned pirates and some just farmed LP, I decided to harass a POS owned by a much bigger alliance alone but with leadership approval just because I wanted their Tyra that was parked in it that lasted a few months, and then I did something completely new I decided to look for a wormhole and make my own nest, more on that later. I left Eve after WH content was finished took time off, came back without a plan and went back to FW area as a pirate some very good fights with small gangs and solo with decent success. until I went exploring and ended up in Null one day and met some guys in rattlesnakes and carriers n the big stuff. Yes I was impressed as most of my ships to date were like disposable razors. Managed to recruit me amazing bunch of guys good friends and the Null life with big blobs thought I would never get bored of that.

After a long time I went venturing into Null trying out Sansha, Blood raider, Stain, Catch was never really the same as the group we had was pretty close so never felt like I was apart of any group after my first Null corp. Took a break from eve and when I came back I started something new again. Sell every asset I owned and start with a rookies ship level 1 mission highsec and see how far I can go.

I managed to get far quick :) ended up in Lowsec and had GREAT time fighting Darwin "the owner of Khanid" ha I owned more than they did thats for sure :)


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

I have read the Code of Conduct and Agree to the terms

5. To prove you've got what it takes to be a solo PVPer, please link five solo kills outside of high security space 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 drop by The Tuskers Public Channel in game and we'll help you out. Video evidence (i.e. fraps) is also nice to see.

Lets see what I can find.
https://zkillboard.com/kill/44041356/ and rematch https://zkillboard.com/kill/44041416/ (am sorry Zaqq, but after that we started to be friends)
https://zkillboard.com/kill/49216506/ (Slicer vs Slicer and rematch https://zkillboard.com/kill/49210034/ Tormentor vs Slicer
https://zkillboard.com/kill/49424103/ (hook bill duel webs and rockets scared the hell out of me tormentor)
https://zkillboard.com/kill/49757197/ (Slicer was in plex with advantage it was a classic slingshot)

The underdog ship ?
https://zkillboard.com/kill/49803736/ (hookbill vs Coercer)
https://zkillboard.com/kill/49970270/ (Garmur Vs T3 dessie)
https://zkillboard.com/kill/43587474/ ( Gattling test fit Slicer Vs Thrasher)

Taking 2 ships at the same time I have 2 nice examples and very different from each other.
https://zkillboard.com/kill/44856324/
https://zkillboard.com/kill/44856346/
My alt was being chased from Highsec into the wormhole... after jumping into the WH I had Mac bubble up and kill the Stilletto and kill is ASAP before the vexor could jump in I knew he was in warp.. So after the Interceptor died I warped away to reship in my POS,,, by the time the vexor jumped into the whole I was already in a Machariel I think he didnt understand what happened to him and his buddy.

Other example is after I solo killed this guy https://zkillboard.com/kill/52210140/ he asked for a rematch I said ok. I warped back to plex pulled some distance on his incurses then a Crucifer comes in and was 3 people too many.. I was the only one that got out of that complex to tell about it.

https://zkillboard.com/kill/52210245/
https://zkillboard.com/kill/52210267/

6. Tuskers use Mumble to verbally communicate during gangs as well as socially. Can you confirm you are willing to install Mumble and own functioning headphones and a microphone?

Yes Mumble is installed ,, I however always need to use a VPN to access Mumble when in Dubai. but no problems when I am in the states.

7. The Tuskers is a corporation for mains. We're OK with you having alts in other corporations for the purposes of making ISK, but not for PvP. Please confirm that the character you're applying with is your main, and let us know about any alts you have in other corporations.

Mac is my main toon for sure.. I have added all my alts with the API I still dont know policy on how many toons I can use with Tuskers maybe a sidekick and main if possible.. Other toons can always retire and look for something else to make money.

8. Provide your API keys via this Google Form.

I have done so with all the toons

9. You need to have vouches from at least 2 active Tuskers. This is simply to maximize the chances of you finding the corporation a good fit and vice-versa. It's fine if you don't have these vouches before you apply - move into our wormhole (free ships are provided) or other active systems, fight against us, with us, join our public roams or jump on our comms and the vouches will take care of themselves quickly. As many Tuskers base out of our wormhole, we can give you access to the wormhole and provide you free ships until you acquire these vouches.

I will work on this part and feel that I have an outgoing personality and most importantly I listen and a very quick learner.

10. What experiences (if any) have you had in a wormhole and would you be interested in moving into one with a constant null sec & wormhole exit?

Like I said earlier I think this part is more relevant for my WH experience. I lived in a C3 WH solo. it was not empty after FW I sniffed a nice WH put an alt scouted it for a few weeks ,, turned out it was also a one man corp living in a C3. I am very resilient in planning and fighting back not with how many ships I can bring but what ships to do the right job. It took me about 2 weeks I had the guy pack up his gear and surrender all the Pocos in the WH to me hahaha I was a king in that WH .. However I realized after the small victory my game content was gone he left I was left all alone in a dark dark place.

Thanks for the reply... Current Corp has 2 members from my Old Null sec corp good bunch of guys ,, The Alliance situation and politics has harmed members. Corp is currently in a transition from REQ to TEST, they have been accepted so I guess the ticker will come up within 24hours they want capital fleet engagements + and those huge blobs I have done all that before nothing wrong with it ,, but what do you learn from those engagements? flying logi is always better in that situation because you have to actually pay attention to your screen.

Hey Johnny, my original character is on the same account as Mac if you have a look at the API has around 2.9M SP. Like i said I started back in 2014 when I went into FW MacGardner was purchased from Eve Bazaar and has been my main ever since. The other accounts have all been support characters one of them was originally made by my RL friend who got me into Eve in the first place. Hope that answers your question.

Thank you Brother Zahariel, I agree with you looking back at the application. I would also suggest an additional and or clarification in the "How to apply to the Tuskers" under Recruitment Proforma to bring attention to the visual aspect of the application.

Hey Mac,

Just a couple of questions from me to get to know you and your playstyle a bit better.

You mentioned you bought Mac for 50B isk, and seem to have deep pockets - would you be willing to share how do you make your ISK?

I'm pretty into battleships this year; can you share a battleship fit you would use for small gang or solo and describe why you fit it this way and what your engagement profile is?

What's an unpopular ship that you think is underused in today's meta, and that would be effective within it?

Cheers,
Rhythmic

- Flying a 100MN arty Loki, you are roaming around with a friendly gang, looking for a good fight with the local entities. You gang is composed of a Pulse Nightmare, Beam Omen Navy, Damp Keres, Arty Sleipnir, and you. You are all blindly jumping on an unscouted gate in null. When on the other side, you notice that you are being outnumbered by a kitchensink gang waiting for you. What is your first move ?

- A lot of people are intrigued by this lossmail : https://zkillboard.com/kill/66379330/ . Can you give us explanations on that ? What is the purpose of this ship, and how did you lost it ?

Good Evening Rhythmic,

I dont know about deep pockets but here goes. I have a degree in Environmental Sciences from the US, actually one of the very few people in the UAE with this specialised degree. The UAE wants to move away from fossil fuels for energy and working towards a more sustainable future so the pay is alright. Also I mentioned I submitted my resignation 2 weeks ago because someone suggested and pushed coal power to be developed as "clean coal" and managed to secure a 24B investment in energy I had a meeting with the CEO told him it was not correct submitted the evidences and was told to try to write and approve of it somehow which I refused. So I wish them the best in the future. Also I was approached by the minister of food security in the UAE to be her environmental consultant which I agreed so looking forward for the new career.

Battleship engagements am not very good with them however I do have some kills and losses in small gangs and solo.

https://zkillboard.com/kill/51701574/ Loss

This is a Machariel I decided on active shield mid slots are expensive but necessary the Nano fiber structures are also needed for range control, speed and agility. This was a very long fight I had no support I engaged another Machariel and he had his friends come in I controlled range by keeping my distance and was hard for them to get come even the orthurus could not land a scram or it would of died. what hurt me the most was when the keres landed and damped me of course I was pointed and would of fended off the attackers but the range was diminished or i would of easily been able to kill the nightmare and Machariel that damn Keres. I have seen some duel rep/duel web machs as well I am looking into those would be better for hunting kills in the South

Here are some of the small gang stuff https://zkillboard.com/kill/65964610/ and again after he reshipped https://zkillboard.com/kill/65964812/

Another the Barghest https://zkillboard.com/kill/49159343/ Basically I was having too much fun with the Garmur and I tried to use the same concept with the battleship sister didnt work too well but I think combo with a hyena it would of been pretty deadly.

"What's an unpopular ship that you think is underused in today's meta, and that would be effective within it?"

That is a very hard question to answer, as I believe every ship in Eve has its own niche or can be built around a certain idea and designed to do a job really well given the correct situation. However, a ship I have not seen in space as often as I would like is a Naga. The 3 low slots really hurts, it if you compare it with the other Battle cruisers in its class it has.
1) Lower Scan Res
2) Pretty high sig radius (once you put on the shield extenders it will light up)
3) Slowest speed
4) Lowest align time

Anyways that is some of my thought process when thinking about ships

my turn to sleep now

You say "Basically I was having too much fun with the Garmur and I tried to use the same concept with the battleship sister didnt work too well", however your killboard shows the only instance of you ever flying a garmur before the date of that barghest loss is killing a single slicer. On that note, I also am seriously questioning your garmur setup if the battleship version of it is a propless nano barghest with a T2 LSB......

When you answered Rhythmics question about an underused ship in todays meta, that would be effective within it, you failed to provide any reasoning as to why you would choose the naga. From what I can tell you only provided reasons why the ship would not be effective, so I would like to re-ask that question with emphasis on why you think it is underused, and why you think it would be effective in the current meta: What's an unpopular ship that you think is underused in today's meta, and that would be effective within it?

Hello Christina,

Sure let me explain the concept I had and what I Learnt from it. The Barghest was lost being moved to Lowsec via WH while scanning on my other toon forgot about my sec status. the final fit should of had a MWD prop 2 extenders and 2 adaptive.

Garmur / Orthurus fits I have had a lot of success during that time peroid and later when I moved them into null, maybe I only had 1 slicer kill prior to the Barghest KM date, but look at what I did after that date with the Garmur both in solo and small gang some examples (https://zkillboard.com/kill/49211003/) catching some of the guys because of the point and scram power and range (https://zkillboard.com/kill/49725840/) as well all solo kills. yes I had a lot of fun flying that Garmur and the success I have had with its fit because I understood what its potential was and how to fly it at that time and I made it work as best of my ability.
I finally lost it here while trying to split this person from his alt and getting his interceptor but the Orthurus landed a little too fast I was out piloted to be honest and that was the fit I used (https://zkillboard.com/kill/50366591/)

The Orthurus also was fitted and flown with the same concept in mind solo and small gang as a much more powerful ship also decent amount of kills with the Orthurus (https://zkillboard.com/kill/49246208/) This one was hardly a fair fight however he was caught on the belt ratting. and a more fair fight was (https://zkillboard.com/kill/50167713/) this was a fight where I engaged a zelot and cynabal in a plex in lowsec fighting 2 I controlled the Zelot until I lost point and he warped off I switched to the cynabal dude to finish him off. (https://zkillboard.com/kill/50620090/) this was an awesome bait as the guy was catching small frigates and indy ships from point A - B I fitted my alts Buzzard very quickly to let him bait me on the bubble do his little song and dance to uncloack me then scram and jam him while Mac comes in and finishes him off. I have not lost the Orthurus and it was finally sold in Catch before I took a break from the game however the fit was similar to the Garmur. but the Barghest never had that success with the idea I admit to that and never really tried since.

What's an unpopular ship that you think is underused in today's meta, and that would be effective within it?

Ok I understand the question better after your explanation you want me to try to make the Naga effective as in today. Sniper fit it with rails you can pilot it much like a rail cormorant which I have done in the past in a small group would be a lot of fun and for cruiser size targets and above the damage support you can provide would be devastating if you have sebos as well you can ungroup the weapons rack and fire on yoloing frigates trying to burn towards you for tackle.

I can of course look at other Naga ideas such as blasters and different fits as role to play in solo of small gangs I guess it all depends what you want it to do.

Cheers
Mac

Good Morning Ymenoa Merenet

I wont forget but thank you for reminding me.

- Flying a 100MN arty Loki, you are roaming around with a friendly gang, looking for a good fight with the local entities. You gang is composed of a Pulse Nightmare, Beam Omen Navy, Damp Keres, Arty Sleipnir, and you. You are all blindly jumping on an unscouted gate in null. When on the other side, you notice that you are being outnumbered by a kitchensink gang waiting for you. What is your first move ?

First thing is hold cloack, call it on comms and take a quick Dscan on whats on grid. Decide if our gang can take them on. If not Burn back to gate maybe we can fight them on the other side and some of them might red box and wont be able to jump with through. this means you will thin their kitchen sink gang and be able pick them off.

- A lot of people are intrigued by this lossmail : https://zkillboard.com/kill/66379330/ . Can you give us explanations on that ? What is the purpose of this ship, and how did you lost it ?

On December 4th 2017 at 1800 in H-ADOC our small gang has engaged on a gate a bigger gang I at the time was flying my own stabber we trying to pull them off the gate I had a caracal I was kiting and a malediction was burning towards me to get scram. noticed one of the members was over 150km away and decided to warp to him at zero however upon landing a spike in local and an order was given to warp out. by the time I aligned to initiate warp I was already pointed scrammed and the neuted by the Bhaalgorn. Generated this loss mail (https://zkillboard.com/kill/66379229/)

I did get the pod out and determined to stay in a fight I quickly looked on contracts for any ship to get back into the fight as soon as possible 2 options came in system an unfitted Chimera and a Machariel I bought the mach on contract thinking there would at least also be a MWD or something in station I can fit it with but nothing was in station at the time. so I undocked asked who was a safe warp in and warped to a member. Neither the ship or its fitting was correct but I wanted to stay on grid and fight warped and shot at the target being called on. what I should of done was tell the guys on comms the ship I just bought off contract and a brief disruption of the fit and see if they wanted it on grid with them at the time. That was it pod express back to Chaos.

- Have you ever scammed someone in-game ? Do you have in mind such business ? Do you know what's the Tuskers point of view about scamming ?

I live my life as an honourable man I will give every cent and dime to help others people or animals as I do take my major in life very seriously. So on that bases I have never thought or wanted to scam anyone neither in real life or "in-game."

As for the Tuskers point of view I am sure that no such actions would be or can be tolerated by the members as the basis and core values have respect, dignity and honour. This is a major quality I look for in a corporation I myself do not and will not tolerate any type of religious or racist discrimination on comms I have experienced that in other corps and alliances. Being on comms with Tuskers first day I was a little unsure what to expect from members but I learnt that there are no such smack talk or jokes on matters that some would consider serious.

Looking forward to any input
Mac

You can do that, or consider fighting them directly in this position. Since you are all in pretty fast / hard to scram ships, you can get a positioning superiority and pick your targets to acquire a tactical superiority.

I did get the pod out and determined to stay in a fight I quickly looked on contracts for any ship to get back into the fight as soon as possible 2 options came in system an unfitted Chimera and a Machariel I bought the mach on contract thinking there would at least also be a MWD or something in station I can fit it with but nothing was in station at the time. so I undocked asked who was a safe warp in and warped to a member.

That was it pod express back to Chaos.


Either case, do not bring a ship fitted like this one in a fight, it's just asking for it to get blapped, since this is basically a blingy PVE fitting. No range control/no speed/no utility = free blingy killmail for the opponent.
If you do not have anything decent to bring, just ask your corpmates for a decent pvp fitted ship, or do not bring anything at all that could put your corpmates in a difficult situation trying to save your expensive ship.

How do you consider this a valid solo fitting for a svipul ?
My own definition of range control is 'any way to control and/or reduce the opponent's ship speed, so that you can get in your own application range, and possibly outside of his'. Range control is a crucial component of a fight, where is it on this ship ? What if you get scrammed, any way to get your MWD speed advantage back ?
This is, in my opinion, a svipul that could fit well in a large fleet, but not as a self-sufficient, solo ship.

Passive Legions are still used a lot by C5 wormhole entities, not so much in null-sec because of the 100MN Loki dominance.
Wormhole fights are most of the time, pretty brutal and straightforward. You need your DPS ships to get the most of their tank since the incoming DPS can go high real quick, for the reasons that there is a lot of Ewar on the field (damps, heavy neuts, painters, webs, ECM). You need your T3C to be able to tank the lot of them so that your logi can catch you up in time.
Here is a variant of a Fleet Legion we were using in my previous C5 corporation :

HIGH
5x Heavy Assault Missile Launcher II

MEDIUM
50MN Quad Lif Restrained Microwarpdrive
Warp Scrambler II

LOW
Damage Control II
1600mm Steel Plates II
2x Energized Adaptives Nano Membrane II
Armor Thermal Hardener II
Reactive Armor Hardener
2x Ballistic Control System

SUB-SYSTEMS
Propulsion : Intercalated Nanofibers
Offensive : Assault Optimization
Defensive : Augmented Plating
Core : Augmented Antimatter Reactor

RIGS
2x Medium Trimark Armor Pump II
1x Medium Bay Loading Accelerator

110k EHP.

(You can always tweak a couple modules to get a better CPU) (of course, C5 WH entities are going to tweak this fitting to make it extra-shiny for an even more massive armor tank)
We never use this kind of extra-tanked buffer armor-ships, because we do not get into massive WH brawls ourselves, but I just wanted to check your ability to build this kind of fitting.

--------------------------------

Your Harbinger Navy Issue fitting is mostly correct, but do not use a 10MN on a battlecruiser. Your ship is still way too slow (and assume that your opponent has a web) + fitting a 50MN instead gives you wider engagement and disengagement possibilities. A 10MN can be valid on some cruisers, but not on a battlecruiser.

Thanks Ymenoa for your input very valuable information. I will keep what you said all in mind especially when thinking about entering a battle again for sure. I saved the Legion fit and I see the difference now one of my simulations was close to that but then thought the 2 mids gives very limited options but I see how it would work with a scram and those low.. I also do think passive was the best way possible instead or active for that.

As for the Harby fit I must say it took me a long time to think and make one.. and yes the prop mod decision was difficult because of the exact reason you stated.

Cheers
Mac
