    The Tuskers--Why? Lowsec Piracy.

    About The Tuskers

    The Tuskers are a PvP corporation, pure and simple. We dabble in piracy, recognising that in the past we were a low sec piracy corporation. We now engage in almost any type of PvP - if there are explosions, we're interested! At the moment, a significant number of us are living in a wormhole, roaming out of it to where we may. Some gangs we've taken out:

    RR Confessors:


    Kiting Jackdaws:


    What we can offer you is a home in New Eden and beyond, with a mature family of like-minded pilots beside whom you can fight, chat, and laugh. The Tuskers isn't an elite or high-skillpoint corporation, but we do have some great pilots; come roam with us, and help us build a reputation of excellence.

    Out of game, we communicate using Slack, discussing Eve as well as other games we play together, such as PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Blood Bowl, Dota and World of Tanks.

    This is a classy corporation, so please don't apply if you are fond of foul language, vulgar conversation, or posting "adult" images on the forums. We may be PvPers, but we're not griefers; we don't scam or talk smack, we treat our opponents with respect, and we always keep our word. We're proud of our reputation for honouring ransoms, and we expect you to do the same.

    If the above sounds great to you, please head over to our forums at http://www.the-tuskers.com/ for more information or speak to the people below:

    A few quotes from ex-Tuskers and people we've ran across:

We go and fly with other pirates occasionaly, when shared intel on a juicy target makes co-operation worthwhile, but 90% of the time even the guys we team up with are red and an hour later we'll be back to shooting each other.

    2. It's a 'family friendly' place, this seems to put some people off. It basically means Tuskers is a place not plagued by teen retards yelling 'nigger' at each other all day. We still troll the shit out of each other, take the piss and generally arse about, just without the 4chan vibe.

    3. We're active as hell, and live in a crazily busy area of low sec. I still can't get over the constant stream of varied targets in every direction within 10 jumps of home. Whoever says low-sec is dead is probably living in Aridia or some other desolate last saloon turd trough.

    regards, Me.

    A few fights we've had in the last few months:

    8 Tuskers fighting 32 Dark-Rising, backed up by multiple Carriers on their home station with shield Battlecruisers under sentries

    10 Tuskers, 50 Militia. We jumped into them but they didn't go for us so we started separating them at multiple celestials.

    8 Tuskers (+1 Ex-Tusker) against a 37 man neutral gang with 5 Blackbirds and a Kitsune. We killed some more next door, as well as losing one or two more Battlecruisers, so this Battle Report is kinda iffy.

    I'd forgotten the last thread was started by me >_<.

    Good corp, I only left because I started to find solo/small gang pvp itself a bit boring, otherwise I'd still be there. Went to go see if i could get excited by massive scale 0.0 conflicts, but unsurprisingly that was a terrible idea. Now trying out WH life, which is much more interesting. I look forward to the ritual Intigo splerging itt

    A fight we had last night (reposted from War & Politics)

    ================================================== ================================================== ==============================

    The following fight takes place in Black Rise.

    After being cockblocked by some T3s in a wormhole, we took a Shield BC fleet out - 6 Battlecruisers, along with a sole Scimitar. Setting destination to Black Rise, we decided to hit a few low sec entry systems to see if anyone was going on. Caught a few Battleships in Akidagi and then ran into a PODLA Tengu who decided to engage us in Martoh. We almost had him a few times (ex-corpmate who joined us in Vigilant was 1km off webbing him) but he got away. Then, in local:

    Awesome, engaged targets! Initial intel is slightly off - they also had a Chimera, Scorpion Navy and Tempest with him.

    We quickly reship (Vigilant -> Drake), get a decent warpin on the POS bashing fleet and start working through them. Initially, everything is going fine, we're carving through them fairly quickly, with the Chimera unable to keep the Battleships up under our DPS whilst our Scimitar is able to keep us all topped up nicely. At some point the Phoenix manages to warp off - with him being in Sieged Mode we're unable to point him when we land and with all the chaos going on we don't notice him moving until it's too late. The Chimera is kept tackled by our Drakes whilst we work through their support, eventually driving or killing them off.

    Focusing on the Chimera now, we have him in half shields when their reshipped fleet comes back in - another Chimera along with a few Drakes, a Sleipnir and more Battleships. Swapping to their support again, we start going through them, albeit slower as some of our DPS is forced to warp off as our Scimitar has ran out of cap boosters after 18 minutes of fighting! As he grabs some more, we're still on the field, keeping them distracted with most of our fleet whilst two of our Drakes start looting - reporting that even the Scorpion Navy dropped just junk.

    Soon, it's just the heavily tanked ships remaining - the Chimeras as well as a Drake or two and the Sleipnir. We swap to anti-drone duty, working on their Fighters etc. as we try to reduce their incoming DPS. Our Scimitar rejoins us and we go back on the offensive as more of their Battleships arrive - a few Megathrons as well as a Sniper Apocalypse at 100km as well as a Thanatos. Unfortunately, our Shield Harbinger gets scrambled by their Sleipnir and then by a Megathron and goes down.

    We take out their Apocalypse in return and start working through their softer support - their Cyclone for example. We're running low on ammunition, even for the Artillery Hurricanes and we're forced to loot from the enemy wrecks whilst keeping their fleet pointed. Our Drake gets scrambled by their Sleipnir, leaving us with only a few Battlecruisers and the Tengu for DPS. Our drones have all been popped at this point but we're still hanging on, dropping their faction fit Scorpion.

    We keep poking them, trying to see if we can break any of their tanks but after one of our Hurricanes lands ontop of them accidently, we withdraw, giving the traditional gfs in local as leave after nearly an hour on the field:

    
    [ 2011.08.17 02:19:22 ] Alfaba > Go tuskers!
    [ 2011.08.17 02:41:42 ] Alfaba > I like how your looting with drakes while the rest of the fleet fights

    [ 2011.08.17 03:01:21 ] razorwire420 > gf
    Not wanting to disappoint them, I considered our options whilst repairing two jumps out. Luckily, more Tuskers have logged on and are enroute. We get a neutral alt to Carrier down two Curses, one for myself and one for his main and then get another of our Drake pilots to reship to his Curse as well as a guy who lost his ship flying 16 jumps back to our HQ and then 16 back in his new Cane. At the same time, we're joined by a few podla guys in a Cynabal, Drake and Hurricane, giving us a gang composition of 1 Cynabal, 4 Battlecruisers, 3 Curses, 1 Scimitar and a Tengu to take on 3 Carriers + ~10 Support or so. I get in contact with the POS owner who was clearing us on and managed to get a status update on the shields - holding at 37% so they'll be there for a while since it's a Large POS.

    Warping back in, we start smashing through their Battleships whilst focusing all the Curses on a single Chimera, keeping him to peak capacitor recharge. After a few minutes of making some headway, they bring in 2 Geddons and an Abaddon. With our Curses lacking multiple TDs and being neutted to hell by their EV-900 drones, they manage to alpha me from low shields and pop another Curse. Our Scimitar runs out of cap boosters and we disengage, after dropping what we can actually break.

    We get some more reinforcements from other pirates we know who live close to our HQ whilst we stay on grid with the enemy fleet, 200km off or so. Once all of us are assembled, we warp to one of the wrecks at 0 and go for their Battleships with overheated close range ammo, but they warp off, leaving us with just two Geddons to kill. We hold the last one down and hope they'll back for him, but no luck and he starts Self-Destructing so we pop him. Local chat:

    [ 2011.08.17 04:12:44 ] Joe Space > lol, i wish
    Field at the end, after nearly two hours after we started:



    Anyone else got screenshots, Djakku or Joe maybe?

    Final Battle Report - 28 kills for 4 losses (+1 Curse not on the killboard)

    Thanks to PODLA for coming, as well as Sinners. gf gf!

    Also, the POS owner sent us 200M for defending his POS, enough to reimburse all losses after we scooped the loot!

    Recruitment is still open - we're looking for pilots who can contribute to Black Ops gangs (except Falcon pilots).

    Had a decent two man roam (more like a mooching session) with homoman shouaa the other day. Got an ok fight out of a tempest and falcon (he came back after we popped his vaga).

    BR is a bit screwed but we killed his vaga first, then he came back out in a tempest and falcon alt (both of which we killed).

    Was GF and seriously chilled =)

    I can do covert cynos, which you said you were looking for. Does it matter that I am terrible? Looking at battleclinic, I do actually have 5 solo kills, somehow

    Covert Cynos are good (just finished training them whoop whoop!).

    oh, also, since I have been flying primarily Gallente, doesn't that make *any* solo kill one where the opponents ship was not Gallente a superior opponent? I totally want credit for that caldari shuttle I solo'd. (i recently crosstrained for minnies, finally)

    Ofc. Until then it is simply challenging.

    I'm in the midst of FCing my first roam where a Falcon was present (and allowed)!

    Our Black Ops roam earlier was pretty bad - we spent 4 hours and killed 3 Battlecruisers. We lost 3 Bombers to a pair of Artillery Hurricanes since most of our gang spawned in the Sun.

    Come join and be terrible with us!

    No good fights in low sec anymore, just "blobs" and ECM ruining fights.

    Oh wait!



    Just a fight we had yesterday, been a pretty good week for PvP as you can see here.

    So, 100MN T3 are pretty overpowered. Really, really, really, really overpowered.

    16 T3 killed this month so far, 35B destroyed so far. Come join in on the fun. We're looking for pilots who can fly Battlecruisers and are willing and eager to engage with daft odds like this and this for a chance of glory.

    P.S. Low sec is dead!

    P.P.S. Small gang PvP is also dead!

    P.P.P.S. We are blue to Shadow Cartel - CONFIRMED

    Tsubutai had the Tengu tackled for about 6 min. Soon as I logged in and got my arty cane in range, the Tengu went down fast.

    must have been an ab dram then? no way that tengu couldnt just heat his ab and go 4.5k whilst webbing down the dram and get away. even a ab web scram dram wouldnt be fast enough for that (assuming the tengu had snakes and loki boost ofc)
