New citizen of the 'verse looking for a good group of people to explore the stars with. RL friend of Noromus, who recommended I apply.
Being so new I’m highly interested in exploring all aspects of SC, from commerce to combat, before I make any definitive statements concerning my main area of focus. With that said, based on 30+ years of wide and varied gaming experience, I expect it will lean towards mercenary-style work. Running security details, completing bounties, fleet defense, etc. This is especially appealing to me in SC due its groundbreaking design of seamless transitioning between vehicle transportation and avatar control. It elicits all sorts of unique tactics and emergent situations not possible in other titles. Imagining things like a small, stealthy drop ship darting close to a large frigate while it’s engaged and distracted to allow a precision strike squad to leap from its open cargo door and float in zero-G to a hatch on the frigate’s hull where they will attempt to infiltrate the ship and destroy critical systems gets me all worked up.
Despite whether or not such a strategy is tactically sound, just knowing it’s actually possible to perform is incredible and exciting to me.
Anyway, I’m a mid-30’s husband and father of three. I’ve got a lot of years of gaming under my belt, including a healthy portion of MMO/group-centric gaming. Former Naval Aircrewman/Aviation Electrician (6 years served).
Appreciate you considering my application. Thanks for reading and hoping to meet some of you IG soon. Cheers.
Edit: I’m about to log for the evening and get some sleep so I won’t be hopping on Mumble right away. I do have it setup and plan on joining the server tomorrow when I log back on. Hope this is acceptable.
