Greetings AIE! Jehdai here with an announcement for our guild member recognition program. AIE would like to congratulate our Guildie of the Month for May: North Issier from AIE Universal. North is one of the pilots in our Eve corporation. Everyone I talked to about North said he was super helpful to new pilots. To help everyone learn more about North Issier, I did a short interview with him:
Jehdai: When did you join AIEU/AIE?
North Issier: I joined AIE roughly 4 years ago (right at the start of my college career). Back than I was mostly playing WoW, but as time has gone on, and my tastes have changed I have shifted from WoW to EVE. I joined AIEU about a year ago, and have been playing with them since joining the game.
Jehdai: What is your favorite AIEU Moment?
North Issier: My favorite AIEU moment was probably when I took a daytrip inside a wormhole with Crow Vanguard. An Orca was trying to ‘roll’ the hole behind us, but we caught him in the act, and blew him outta the water. In a moment of madness/glee the idea was put forth that we should erect a small POS tower, named “Free Willy” in honor of this orca. There’s an AAR about it somewhere….
Jehdai: Do you have a favorite Killmail or lossmail?
North Issier: Favorite KM? My first kill…. the aforementioned orca kill, I got the last hit on the ship, so so far, that’s my favorite kill. I try not to dwell on my loss mails. I do enjoy how the drifter battleships have been reeking havoc everywhere. I saw that they got someone’s golden pod…that was a good laugh.
Jehdai: In your nomination they said that you like to help the new players out, how do you help the new players?
North Issier: Generally when I hear someone in our comms with a question like “what ship is the best?” or “how do I do x,y, or z?” I try to find out what it is they want to know before trying to answer their question. Maybe it’s because of how ‘little’ I’ve been playing this game for, but I still remember feeling like they did, back before I had figured out what I know about the game. Before I had taught myself to learn the game chunks at a time, rather than all at once, like you ‘can’ do with other games.
Jehdai: What ship/role is your current favorite?
North Issier: My favorite ship currently is the Svipul. Although my corp mates will tell you that I will almost always favor Minmatar ships over anything else in general.
Jehdai: American Bacon or Canadian Bacon?
North Issier: Neither. Got to keep things Kosher. So Turkey bacon!
