Signal Cartel: A Haven for Peaceful Explorers--New Players Welcome!

First post First post
Signal Cartel
EvE-Scout Enclave
#1 - 2015-01-31 01:05:59 UTC  |  Edited by: Mynxee
Preamble: Many of you know me from the low sec pirate corp Hellcats that I founded or from my CSM5 term. After a couple of years' break, I returned early last year to a much improved EvE Online. I have loved exploration since my early days in the game and since my comeback, have spent most of my time wandering the stars. With the advent of Thera, I discovered the fine folks at EvE-Scout and became a scout. We began talking about a home--a haven really--for explorers (especially new players pursuing that career path), which led to the recent formation of Signal Cartel [1420.] and my role as CEO. I am really excited to be part of this project and invite other explorers to join us! Also, my blog post about this endeavor.

Signal Cartel [1420.] is New Eden's premier home for explorers. We are a different kind of corp--one dedicated to the highest ideals of exploration: seeking to find what's out there just because it's there, respecting and not interfering with the natives, using our wits and pluck to survive and thrive, sharing our journeys with others, and remaining of good cheer no matter the challenges New Eden throws at us.

------>>> We welcome new players <<<------
interested in peaceful exploration
and will help you get a good start in EVE!

We believe exploration is a great career choice and welcome active pilots who by nature are curious about New Eden, who are infected with wanderlust, who prefer slipping like lone ghosts between the stars rather than hunting for fights, who may be interested in exploring the mysteries of New Eden lore, who enjoy solitary adventuring but also appreciate the nurturing, support, and camaraderie of like-minded corpmates. Rookies are most welcome to join us.

Signal Cartel Benefits

  • A nurturing and inclusive corp culture
  • Friendly mentoring in our Alliance chat, in fleets, and via our wiki/subreddit
  • Buy-back program for exploration site loot
  • Free T1 exploration frigates and fits
  • Access exploration related skillbooks and gear
  • Ability to participate as a scout for the EvE-Scout scanning endeavor in Thera
  • Participation in fun exploration-centric fleet ops, expeditions, and in-game events
  • Voice comms (Mumble) if you want it (not required except for fleet members and even then, listen-only is almost always fine)

How to Apply

  • Visit EvE-Scout to review corp info and our corp credo.
  • On our Web site, submit your API and agreement to abide by the corp credo.
  • Submit an application in-game.

  • More Info

    You can't do much better than placing yourself under the able leadership of Mynxee. A legend of lowsec, I have no doubt this is the first step to crafting her legend in exploration as well.

    Thanks, Marc. We are getting a very positive response already. Wonderful to see this corp concept embraced so positively by the explorer community and others as well!

    I've been flying with members of Signal Cartel and the EvE-Scout Enclave since Thera opened, and from exploration roams to keeping the site updated to simply sitting and chatting, they've been a great bunch to fly with. Thera definitely wouldn't be the same without them.

    Combined with Mynxee's leadership, I foresee some great things coming out of this!

    Why, as solo explorer, Signal Cartel is the Wow signal i was waiting for while wandering alone out there :

    1. There's quite a lot of newcomers in Eve these days, they need to be train to play the game the way they like it before leaving it too soon
    2. I teach a bit yeah but i learn more in two days than the 4 pasts month
    3. Everyone has a willing to help, or craving to learn :p
    4. We have talents : -- -- -- --

    And in conclusion i can't find better words than those of our beloved Moth.... CEO in this excellent post :

    Great post, Rixx. Seriously. Nothing I have done in EVE has made me feel as good about playing as starting Signal Cartel with our very different corp credo and our open arms mentoring acceptance of rookies. The reception has been fantastic. The energy and delightful, intelligent, helpful, just plain nice (and often hilarious) conversation in our Alliance channel has been so wonderful to see. It all gets back to the old idea that EVE is what you make it. And that it is very possible to create and maintain a positive environment where new players can learn in a stress-free, nurturing way without hateful, negative, nasty dialog--regardless of play-style. And I firmly believe that it is players who need to take the lead on that; CCP could not possibly be expected to police such things beyond what they already do.

    Can't say it in a better way, and to me that's the proof i'm at "my place" in my way, and with all the people in the corp it's the same. So if you feel like us and/or wanna learn to explorer, come with us :p

    As a new player to eve and and as someone who hopes to be a career explorer, i could not have found a more suitable place to be, the assistance offered is invaulable, the company in corp is brilliant, very mature and proffesional.

    all in all i fell i have made a good first step in eve, the galaxy is big, but these guys help me make it that little bit smaller and achievable.

    Nice people, nobody tells you what you must train or do, and if you need help with questions people are quick to reply.
    Very newbie friendly. Corp is active in all TZ as far as I know.
    Come join us!

    The people in corp and alliance have been incredibly helpful and actively supportive of empowering people with the tools and knowledge to explore New Eden. If you have the wanderlust to discover the sights and mysteries of this game universe, Signal Cartel is the group to do it with.

    I've been gone awhile from Eve, and been looking for a new home since I got back. I must say, reading this got me very excited to apply! I'll send an in-game application. Looking forward to talking to someone!

    I've recently come back to EVE after a very long absence as well. Exploring wasn't present when I played years ago and for me, it's just what I missed in EVE. It is highly fascinating to me and there's still a lot to learn, do and see. Your corp sounds like a great opportunity to do just that. I'd enjoy the company of others for whom PvP isn't the main focus of the game as well. I'll contact you ingame when I get home.

    This corp is blessed with creative, knowledgeable and fun people in its ranks. Everyone has been very friendly and helpful since I joined.

    If you like exploration and if you find yourself intrigued by the corp credo, then look no further.

    We are growing fast (92 members already, not two weeks after our public launch!) with a great mix of experienced and rookie explorers in the ranks. It's really fun to see the different ways folks approach exploration as a career, and even more fun to see our members taking the initiative to organize activities for and provide material support to our rookie pilots.

    If you are interested in peaceful exploration as a career, give us a look!
