One thing I'm missing: many (mostly low sec) corps have a "shoot, then recruit" mentality. Seeing how someone flies, and seeing how someone responds to being shot / ganked, can tell a lot about a person. I've had numerous occasions where someone convos me after a fight, inquiring whether I'm looking for a corp. conversely, new players shouldn't be afraid of venturing into low sec, getting blown up and then convo-ing their killer. At the least you will usually get some fitting and flying tips, and if things click you might inquire about joining them.

This of course assumes your response to being shot is akin to "haha, that was fun!" instead of a stream of gibberish, IRL threats and insults.

Yep, the way you react/respond to a situation will tell a corp/pilot a good bit about you.

Once, got baited into fleeting up with folks we had just shot at, they took us 5 or 6 jumps into null, warped us to somewhere in system, up goes a bubble, boom, I was dead pretty quickly. I mailed the FC giving him kudos and sincere thanks for the lesson learned. He sent me some ISK.

Hello NightCrawler 85,

Great guide, very informative and well written.

It's good to see you're still subbed. Keep up the good work.

Big smile

Hope to see you at a future Eve Meet again.

With permission from one of the lovely WGOE moderators I included a small note for female EVE players that are looking for a corporation that has other female gamers they can talk to in the event that they prefer to be in a corporation with mixed genders.

Lots of updates.

I have added a new section for community channels. These channels are not intended for recruiting, but my hopes are that they will make it easier for players to find people with ties to communities they would wish to be a part of.

However, there are a lot of channels out there, thus any suggestions on what channels should be on the list would be much appreciated.

A small note regarding Reddit has now also been added.

Simple goal of the chat: You lost something and want to know why and how to improve yourself. Link the loss and receive the info you need to make yourself a better pilot (either by a better fit, tactics, skills or a mixture of all 3 before mentioned)

This guide is as comprehensive as it is long. OP covers pretty much everything from API's to doing research. Do your research

+1 to this post, an asset to new players.

Just one personal tip I'll add:

Take the time to read the blurbs or talk to CEO/recruiters as part of the process. Try to get them to reveal what their vision is for the future of the corporation. If they seem passionate and what they say inspires you, go with your instincts!

Good luck!
