A bit off my path into my past, I guess, more a look into my present. I am the CEO of Dromedary Goat Albatross and Fish – a corp which teaches noobs to PVP and then takes them with us into 0.0. Some make it, some don’t. Some leave us to be pirates like our beloved Wensley – some leave us to join other alliances – and some stay with us and help us teach more noobs. Some just stop playing and don’t tell us, go dormant. Sometimes it can be a bit of a repetitive and boring job, but most of the time, teaching noobs has a reward of its own.

This weekend, I was doing a fleet ops seminar for a group of new and semi-experienced pilots, teaching them about the difference of a fleet compared to flying on your own, commands used in a fleet, some of the dangers of 0.0 and what to expect once you get into 0.0. It is a a seminar we do while in high sec, and we even allow guests to join us, as it is quite safe and does not reveal secrets, so if you would like to try it, do sign up at our forum and look for the next one. Anyway, at the end of our fleet ops, I took my noobs to a nearby 0.0 gate where a camp of friendlies had a bubble on the gate and we were able to join in easily. In a relatively short while, we manage to take out an Enyo and I was pretty happy with the end of the day, as it meant all my noobs had been blooded successfully.

And then I woke up the next day to find out that one of the youngest of my noobs had gone out the next morning to prove me wrong. You see – I keep claiming that caldari frigs are no good for solo pvp. And that rifters are pretty good for that purpose… Well, young Lord Zekk did not want to listen. So he went to Wensleys homesystem and killed a rifter in his Kestrel

That’s the kind of mornings that makes it great to teach noobs. When they make me wake up and see that they listen, they do learn and they take what they learn and use it to be better than me at what they what to do. That’s why one of my mottos is “A noob a day makes the boredom go away”.
