I didn't get to play Eve today except to kick off an ammo manufacturing job in 9GYL, but I did do a lot of thinking while reading incoming reports of others getting in on the action. There are a few issues to be being a good corp member in terms of PvP:
1) I tend to be online early in the evening while most others are online later in the evening.
2) I only get online for about an hour and some operations need that long to simply find a target
3) My character is still young and can't fly decent ships for PvP alone.
Realizing this I have to make some adjustments to my expectations that I can live with. So the new plan is to concentrate on my missions and business and jump into PvP operations when I can. Try to do my part fo the coproration as a utility man, taking on solo missions like scouting and hauling to keep the hunters hunting. In a few months when my skills improve, I'll start looking into solo PvPing in cruisers and such.
Patience is required, and I'm notoriously bad for it.
