Star Frontiers

Who Are We?

Star Frontiers is TEST's big brother that grew up and got a job. We're mostly professionals irl and we love EVE, we play for fun, and we are serious about always improving. We're a family that accepts newbros, supercapital pilots, and everyone in-between – so long as you share a similar mindset.

Star Frontiers is a PVP focused corp. We expect all members to actively contribute to PVP events, especially strategic operations. We also encourage small gang and other PVP. All of our new members are asked to go through a brief period of review, until approved by SF Leadership, so we wish to stress the point that we do view PVP as a requirement. We offer pilots a vast bank of knowledge and plenty of options when it comes to skill your character into a specific role. Ours is a relaxed environment with like-minded individuals at all skill levels for some great all-round PVP experiences.

History

Star Frontiers first joined Test Alliance Please Ignore in December 2013 before striking out on their own as B0SS Alliance in September 2015, then re-joining Test in 2017. SF has a long history of interaction with Test, both as friends and adversaries. It began with Test winning Fountain from IT. Coalition (SF's alliance at the time). Later, Star Frontiers were raiders out of Fountain Core as a part of Ignore This. alliance. During that time SF pilots gained a level of respect for the Test approach to EVE, so it seemed almost natural when SF joined Test in the Honey Badger Coalition as a member of Thorn Alliance and fought together during the fall of Fountain and afterwards in Curse. Shortly thereafter, a change of leadership in Star Frontiers resulted in SF formally joining Test.

Star Frontiers' time heading up B0SS Alliance was quite successful, holding sov in Fountain starting October 2015, then Tenal starting May 2016 and finally in Perrigen Falls November 2016 through August 2017 when they re-joined Test Alliance.

Star Frontiers maintains a corporate culture distinct from B0RT, but that exists in seemingly perfect symbiosis with it. Like BORT we are noob friendly, while at the same time aspiring to live up to our motto: We're Not Elitist, We're Just Tired of Fail. Like that motto implies, we aspire to play EVE at a high level - while still treating one another with respect and patience. Because of this we are ideal for the new player who considers themselves a serious, or even 'hardcore' gamer, however we have no patience for trolls or jackasses.

We have a long history of merging other corps into our own, and our culture is created by the sum of our parts. Our membership and indeed our leadership includes players from several corps that we have been honored to make a part of our history and family over the years.

Star Frontiers manages quite a respectable showing at Fanfest, Eve Vegas, Eve London, Eve Northeast, and Eve LA every year. If you plan on being at one of these events and would like to meet up, give us a shout.

Recruitment

Star Frontiers prides itself on maintaining a culture that is distinct from, yet a vital part of, Test Alliance. As such we seek a distinctive type of EVE player who is able to function well as part of -S-F- yet feel at home and contribute within Test Alliance as whole.

Star Frontiers is looking for recruits who are:

  • Sophisticated. We are not dicks to anyone, including our “enemies”. This is fundamental. Above all else we are a mature, intelligent, family oriented group of gamers. This doesn't mean we are above light-hearted smack, or overly snooty - we just understand the value of being seen as classy and professional.
  • Social. We are active socially. We get on comms, we get on discord, we interact with each other and our alliance mates in a continually positive way.
  • Steadfast. We are active in PvP. While we understand real life comes first, we don't shy away from PvP. We join fleets, even annoying ones sometimes. We set an example of how to be “pro” by flying the right ships at the right time.
  • Savvy. We are smart gamers who are interested in the mechanics of our game and in improving our quality of play. No one is perfect, but folks are expected to adapt and learn with nominal hand holding.

New recruits will be on probation for 30 days. Keep in mind, at the end of the probationary period we'll take a look and we might ask you to leave! However, doing the following things at a bare minimum will make sure you're setup for success

  • Setup all services (Jabber(XMPP/Discord)), Mumble, TEST Forums, and Star Frontiers Discord
  • Participate in at least 1 fleet a week (2-3, even better!!)
  • Be social, be independent (but if you have any questions please ask!) and be as awesome as you can

Failure to demonstrate an ability to do the above will likely result in dismissal from SF. We're pretty laid back, but we also want to establish standards where we can. We're not elite, we're just tired of fail.

The Star Frontiers Standard

The Star Frontiers Standard is our plain English version of what we want out of every one of our members. This is especially true for our new member (During your 30 day probie period) as near the end of the 30 days we'll do a review and see if you've held up your end of the deal. If not, well, we might ask you to go after other adventures in eve… (Aka ask you to leave)

The Standards

  1. PVP Activity Requirements
    1. We ask that you participate in at least 1 - 2 fleets a week. We find this minimum is exactly that, a minimum. If you're a newer member, obviously 2+ fleets a week will make you look like even more of a boss when we do our review
  1. Social Aspect
    1. We want our members to be social when they can. Eve is an insanely social game, and the SF family would love to have you partake in what really keeps us bittervets in the game, the community.
    2. Be On Comms when you can … we love our members who actively talk, tell horrible jokes, and just generally have a great attitude on comms with all the other dudes.
  1. Be Self Sufficient
    1. In a nutshell, this means you need to have the ability to make ISK on your own, buy your own PVP ships, and have the proper items in the proper stagings
  1. Be Active
    1. Even our bittervets have to vanish for Real life every now and then. If you need to go afk, go through the appropriate channnels so we can invite you back in when you return to internet spaceships.
      1. This generally means if you're away from eve for more months than you've been in corp (Generally a 6 Month cap) we might move your character out of corp until you're back on)
    2. If you're in your 30-day probie period, we'll have you restart the process and leave corp for the time being

Absence or Lack of Standards

If at any time you feel that you can't meet the standards, please send a recruitment director/officer a PM. We will most likley ask you to resubmit your application when you're able to participate in our minimum standards, and will remove you from corp.

If you're away or unable to meet standards, a recruitment director of officer might try to reach out to you when doing our 30-day review, via the SF Discord. If you're not able to be reached we will allot you 48 hours to vacate any assets and will then remove you from corp.

We want to keep our standards as much as possible, thank's for your understanding.
