Bare with me as this post is a bit different than most recruitment posts. I'm not the greatest salesperson but here's the pitch....
Armed Insanity has a long history going back to Earth and Beyond. That was short lived and our main area of interest became first person shooters. I won't bother listing our gaming experience because it's quit extensive. Our motto is, "You pick the game, we conquer it!". If there was enough interest in a particular multiplayer title, we went with it. In that time, we played casually, competed on TWL ladders and professionally in CAL.
WoW came along and we ventured off into MMO Land as a guild. Clan efforts were still supported in the fps arena but most of our attention was on WoW. Team =AI= was represented on 3 realms (2 PvE and 1 PvP). That was a management nightmare. We tried a few other titles but always stuck with WoW. A year and half later, it all fizzled. Burnout set in and most members went their separate ways after I retired my toon, for good! The same goes for the fps teams. So much effort was being put into the guild side of things that the clan side eventually died off. I bit off more than I could chew, I'm sure of it.
Since then, I have been trying to bring =AI= back to it's former glory. A time when the site was seeing 800,000 page views a year, membership was in the hundreds and teamspeak was flat out full on a nightly basis. Those were the good old days. I tried EVE on a trial basis some months ago and because of my addictive nature, was instantly hooked. I gave up on it because of my addiction to the World of Warcrack. After having laid the Blizz Pipe down, I still had a craving for some MMO goodness and picked EVE back up. I must admit though, I'm overwhelmed at it's complexity. In fact, I'm downright lost.
Now, the offer.... Let me make this clear right now...I don't want to join a corporation. I want to build one from scratch. Since I have little to no experience in the game, I am in need of an adviser. This adviser will help give a sense of direction for a team that will be assembled in the near future. Think of it as a 1-year plan. I don't want someone to play the game for me. I want someone to come in, give me a run down of what to expect and help steer the plan in a certain direction. Once I have clear understanding, I will go from there.
The offer can go a few ways depending on the individual or group interested in such an endeavor. For the ambitious types....this is an opportunity to help build from the ground up. This entitles you to top tier leadership positions and you would work with me directly in getting this show on the road. As a corporate manager in RL, I understand corporate structure and everything that goes with it. I can bring a lot of skills to the table but not all. What I don't understand, is this game. I am looking for people to compliment my skill base so that we can build a kick ass corp. I need a person or group of people to help me with corporate responsibilities once a plan is hammered out. We will implement each step as needed when the time comes. I have a site, forums and teamspeak on a dedicated server and T1 that I control. I can market and advertise so that we can have an internet presence outside of the server for recruitment purposes or just for bragging rights.
The second option is to have an established corporation take me under their wing in an advisory position. Now why would a corp do that? Maybe there is a corp out there that needs a home on the net. I can offer the following for your services:
1. A dedicated forum section for your corp (with rights)
2. Unlimited teamspeak. You will have your own branch on the TS tree.
4. Banners and site to include your corp. 'In Alliance with..." type situation.
All of this free of charge just for helping me get this started. I take pride in the fact that I have invested thousands of dollars in this community without one donation or handout from any member. I am always willing to lend out my resources to those in need. I've done 'no cash' sponsorships to homeless clans in the past and I enjoy it to this day.
For corps in need of home, I have what your looking for. No babysitting here....just a guide to help give me a sense of direction so that I can keep this moving. I can also bridge corps to help form an Alliances if need be. I'm not well versed yet in EVE structure so I may be off on that idea.
For anyone looking at a start up, come join me. For those needing some assistance in creating an internet presence for yourselves, I'm your man. I am very flexible but expect to negotiate to a final understanding no matter who takes the offer. I see some great opportunities for anyone interested. I hope you see them to.
Let it be known....I expect a sense of humor and a fun loving attitude above all. If your easily offended, please don't apply. What I don't want is some militaristic attitude driving this project. Structure and professionalism is great. Treating people like shit, is not. I'm here to have fun and expect the same from the membership.
If this is not the right place to post this, please delete and accept my apologies. No hard feelings...
