Mentor Team a Great Success!
As you may have seen from our previous updates, we have implemented a mentor team to help new recruits get to grips with life in nullsec and help them registering for our comms, forums etc. The mentor sticks with the new recruit provisionally for a week, at which point the recruit can request more time. This also gives our new recruits a point of contact inside the corp which will make the task of making friends a lot less daunting.
The recruitment team has kept the mentor team busy as we burn through our backlog of applications!
TEST Hits a Brick Wall
A quote which is being banded about right now is one from a Mister Vee: "TEST don't go slow, they go lightening fast in one direction until they hit a brick wall then 180 and repeat". (Quite possibly paraphrased here).
Our campaign in Vale has hit a brick wall, that wall being Raiden's massive super cap fleet. We expected Raiden to be helping White Noise to defend their space in Branch, but other than a couple of skirmishes the region fell with little resistance. Raiden instead fully deployed to Vale, seemingly abandoning their space in Tenal (which resides just above Branch and most likely next on Goons' list). Although we are able to match the Vale entities in numbers we simply don't have the same kind of super cap fleet that they do, meaning they can drop them with impunity.
What will happen next however is anybody's guess. Will we stay true to Vee's quote and run in a different direction? Or will we persevere?
Killing... You get used to the killing...
Enlightened Industries has stayed true to form by starting the year with a ing amount of kills. Since the start of the year we have had over 400 kills and sit proudly, as usual, second on TEST's killboard. I say proudly because the top spot is always Dreddit who have 2500+ members, which is massively more than we have. So second spot to us is as good as top spot.
We also killed the years first super capital ship which is pretty epic.
If you want to get some serious killing done, whether it's small gang or large blob then you can't go wrong with us.
