Recently, there is a trend among Eve bloggers to focus some time on their blogs to idea of helping New Players. They are telling people what they do or what people should do to encourage New Players to join them in PvP, which is different from the newbie preying, Harden-The-Fuck-Up attitude that is common in Eve.
Lot’s of talk about mentoring. It’s a good thing.
So one of my students pointed out to me that Eve University has a Work Fair section of their forum where corporations post recruitment threads. Interestingly enough, I didn’t know it existed. So I shot over and made a post for Open University of Celestial Hardship.
Quite a few organizations posting that they provide training. OUCH seems to get more than our share of students who joined corps that claimed they provided training, but didn’t live up to the student expectation.
We think giving a guy a rod and a book on fishing isn’t teaching them how to fish. You have to show them.
But if you’re a player that’s looking for a new home, there seems to be a lot of corporations out there looking for you. If you’re a veteran looking for someplace to send a friend that you want to get caught up with you, there’s a place for you to look. You still have to figure out which one is right for you, but Eve Uni is providing a place for you to search, as an alternative to the Eve Online Forum.
If you’re going to go to Null, I’d suggest joining OUCH for 90 days. Might as well get some survival skills rather than learn it the hard way.
Just an idea.
See you out there.
