Welcome new recruit to ANZAC ALLIANCE (ANZA)! You have made a fine choice for your next journey into the deep dark part of EVE that is null sec and we hope you enjoy your stay.
As fresh meat for the grinder there a number of tasks you need to complete when you join ANZA to ensure you are in the loop and able to participate. If you get stuck, ask your corp members or your Recruiter/handler for help.
Our home system can change from time to time depending if we are deployed on contract, to find the current location/s check the in-game Corp chat message of the day.
Join the DARKNESS intel channels so you can get a heads up on any baddies during your travel. Make sure you have accepted the corp invite before entering null-sec. As a NBSI corp and alliance you will be engaged, and podded on sight if you haven't yet joined the corp. We won't refund your ship either. You will probably run into hostiles and gatecamps on your journey. The safest ship is the Interceptor but if you cannot fly one a shuttle or a fast cheap frigate can also be used.
Don't forget to ask your recruiter/handler or your fellow new corp members for advice on getting to our home too.
Once you have accepted the corp invite it can take several hours for the EVE API to show us that you are in corp, however ANZA Auth updates fairly quickly as you already entered your SSO tokens during the recruitment process.
We currently use several key out of game tools to manage everything, Discord for text communication and Teamspeak and at times Mumble for voice, Darkness forums for doctrines. It is mandatory to be connected and online to Discord, and Teamspeak whenever you are in-game. Teamspeak is used in fleets. These tools allow us to notify you about important events and new fleets that are available.
When setting up these services, you should use a different set of API keys for ANZA, to all other eve online 3rd party services. This helps prevent conflicts and errors when each service polls the API to update your details. Also DO NOT use the in game browser to set these up, use your normal web browser out of game as the IGB breaks stuff. In short if a tool requests an API key - make one just for that tool - Do not re-use them
Work through New Members Guide.
Once you are set up on all the above tools, post your welcome post in the Welcome Lounge. Read the sticky for the template to use. This is mandatory for all new recruits so that we know you are set up fully.
