I joined Noir. about 6 months ago and it was kind of a new chapter for me. I came from a pirate corp that taught me a lot about PvP, but less about the finer points of success in it. I've spent the last 6 months polishing my PvP skills, mostly flying one ship(a stealth bomber), and perfecting my skills in it.
I've made friends, fought old friends. I've disconnected and reconnected with people I knew.
I've spent the time working hard to learn FCing small to medium sized gangs. Learning the rules of null sec, war decs, and wormholes. I've participated in PoS defenses. I've been all around New Eden and I've made a bit of money doing so.
Yesterday I got promoted to a leadership position in Noir. as one of its 4 officers.
So I guess this is a new chapter.
