Pirating and Awoxing

Hi all,

This is not my primary toon.... I've created this to mess up a bit in space!

I'm looking for ways to use this char as a pirate or an awoxer. Now I don't have experience with this, but I was thinking about the following:
1) Join a corp and provide a character only API
2) Fly to a POS and start shooting it (will it shoot back?)
3) Steal all the ****
4) Try to do it again or drop the toon and create a new one.

Other possibilities are join a corp fleet, scram ships like an Orca and get some buddies to help out.

I'm looking for some advice and possible groups of people (shared channels?) where we can meet up, help eachother etc..

All information is welcome and many thanks in advance!

This might not end well, as an unwritten rule of this forum sub-section is that only mains are deserving of respecting. Even if you intend to do all that you describe, it's probably better to ask the questions with your main. It's not like we're all pure and innocent here Pirate

Grey-area sheneningans you describe basically fall into three categories : murder, theft, and betrayal.

All of these are based on a simple premise : you can only do what others allow you to do.

For murder, it usually requires joining a corporation that operates in highsec with friendly-fire allowed (murdering people in other space doesn't happen a lot because you usually end up losing more, for various reasons).
For theft, it's about gaining enough trust to be given access to valuable toys, or to join a corp of naive directors. It can work very well if you're good at talking and convincing.
Betrayal is the playground of spies, more frequent in nullsec than highsec ; usually, spies do their job for strategic reasons, working for the opposition. Mercenary spies are not something that works well in Eve.

Would you like to know more?

The above message presents my opinions on the topic at hand. If there is a conflict between my views and reality, consider reality to be correct until proven otherwise.

Creates forum post on public forum with forum alt explaining he would like to awox with forum alt - check
Asks for help to help awox.

Speaking of poking around Dommy, I asked Sasha if he still held my backside. I confronted him with my 20 sided dise and scroll. 18 and he said nuthen. You were write as per usual. He broke the ganker circle so now what??!! Evil

I'm a special elite ganker, Codes finest warrior bard druid. I gank as much as possible cause I'm good. Don't mess with me minor, i'll mess with you harder. I have no honor. Dommy and Sasha are my wingmen and have my backside.

BU is the the best channel in the game.

Found some dude with a killright on him and need help to neut out his marauder? Ping in BU and someone will show up in a Armageddon. Need reps for your awox? BU. Found a carebear that will bite when you shoot his MTU but can't tank him? BU will save you.

If you want to do evil and need impromptu assistance it's the best channel.

Since CCP let corps disable friendly fire, AWOXing has gotten more difficult, albeit far more satisfying. If FF is off, you'll need to coax someone into a duel "to test your fit", get assigned to web freighters into warp, etc.

If you're trying to steal loot from a POS that belongs to the same corp as you, shooting it is the very last thing you want to do. Aside from taking a ridiculous amount of time to actually destroy it (you have to destroy the control tower before you can shoot any loot-containing structures), corp leadership is notified any time the POS is attacked. Get roles, steal loot, and drop them a little note as you abscond with your booty.

This kind of gameplay is all about social engineering, mind-fuckery, and generally being a devious buggar, not so much shooting at things.

Plan accordingly.

Hey, I can teach you how to scam and awox. Shoot me a corp invite in game and I'll train you. I only require a 500 mil good faith deposit when people join. You'll get it back as soon as the corp invitation is accepted.

The man has been inactive for years.

MMO'S have an extreme nostalgia problem. We tend to venerate the Tales of Them What Did Them Cool Things Long Ago, far past the point of it still being relevant or fresh. See forum threads with variations of:

Anyone from XXXX Guild/Corp/Server still play?
XXXX Guild/Corp is back!!
Remember When These Two Forumdudes Argued?


Don't get me wrong here. I enjoyed B.U.s blog, as well as Feyds and M.B. (I even liked Jesters Trek!) But the simple truth of it is that almost all of those people aren't updating anymore. Miner bumping updates every day, but it is the exact same update every single day. Feyd updates a tiny little bit, but most of his posts are all childish tantrums about "The Gweat and Ebil Cawebeaws". ( which I find ironic. The man spent an inordinate amount of time crying about a class of player he accused of spending an inordinate amount of time crying.)
