DOMINION has arrived and you want to venture into 0.0 space (nullspace) to join in on the excitement, but you don't have any training... You know you'll die.

Most of the other nullsec corps and alliances will offer you training only if you join their 'cause', whether that's PVP or industry, but you usually have to fund your own way. That can be daunting for someone that doesn't want to be part of some 'cause', and who expects to lose a lot of ships before they start getting somewhere.

We understand your dilemma.


What's the answer?

OUCH is the answer. It's the Open University of Celestial Hardship. We're brand new, but we have very experienced trainers to teach you how to survive and prosper in nullspace. We have no 'cause' other than to teach you Nullsec Survival Training.

We have a T1 ship program that provides ships and fittings to all members - FREE. These include frigates, cruisers, battlecruisers and battleships. All ships can be used for training or individual use while in OUCH, and fittings are included.


What does that mean for me?

If you lose a corp-provided ship, we will give you another one - free of charge. While you learn how to cope with the hardships of nullspace, losing ships will not be something you'll need to worry about.

And you will lose ships and get podded a few times along the way. We don't guarantee your survival in nullsec, but we guarantee to teach you how to minimise your losses along the way.

It's brutal out there, but when you're a member of OUCH, you're with a group of friendly, relaxed people and a leadership who understands your fears. We're here to help you take advantage of DOMINION and get involved in nullspace. We'll teach you everything you need to know.


What kind of training will I get?

Initially, as we start our operations, training will focus on frigates and cruisers as well as the following:

  • Nullsec survival - includes ratting / salvaging, scouting, evasion, and map tools

  • Small ship PVP - includes fitting ships, overheating, and combat tactics in fleets or solo

As we get more members (and more advanced skillsets amongst them) we'll move to battlecruisers and battleships, along with more advanced PVP training. Again, all ships will be provided by OUCH. (We also intend offering T2 ship training, including interceptors, covert ops, and support ships, but these ships will need to be provided by the students themselves.)

We're also part of an alliance that is dedicated to providing support for members of OUCH, including security, intelligence-gathering, and manufacturing ships and items. If you want to stay on and help support OUCH after you've finished with your training, there would definitely be a place for you.

We want to help you learn how to survive in nullspace, whether that's in PVP, ratting, or complex's. We'll help you be the best that you can be, and teach you how to earn as much as you can along the way.

That's right, we'll also be teaching you how to make money in nullspace. There's no point giving you combat training if we don't include teaching you how to replace lost ships, right? We don't expect you to be with OUCH forever, so we understand you need to learn how to sustain yourself out there.


Ok, I'm interested - what do I do now?

If you're interested in learning more about how OUCH can help you, then you're welcome to visit our website (still a work in progress) to have a look around, ask questions, or join in on any discussions.

You're also welcome to join the OUCH-UNI channel in-game and talk to Alexia Morgan, or send her an evemail to discuss your interest and ask any questions you might have.

We look forward to discussing your interest with you.

Is anyone interested in nullsec PVP training? Anyone? Or are you too scared?

OUCH is here to help you. But we can only help you if you take the initiative and talk to me about your interest.

Or you can remain in Empire, too afraid to venture into some real gaming. Up to you.

Cool

Hi Dirty! OUCH aims to have students and trainers in all time zones, so that no matter what time it is, there's something happening.

Since we've just started, however, we don't have that yet. And since most people online seem to be in the US, that's the timezone that most of our members are currently in right now. We do have a couple in EU, and I'm in Australia.

OUCH now has a website where public discussion and inquiries about recruitment can be posted. (Yes, I know the banner sucks. I'm working on a better one...)

I'm interested. What is the required SP?

There is no required SP. Even brand new pilots are welcome. If they cannot fly the corp-provided T1-fit frigates, there are training plans (and relevant skillbooks) provided so that they can get into the ship asap. They can hang out in our Empire station until they can fly the ship and be escorted to nullsec HQ.

We welcome all pilots, regardless of age, race, or experience. If you want to learn how to survive in nullsec, we're the corp to help you.

It has already begun. Active training operations, however, start after xmas. You're welcome to sign up at any time.

Merry Christmas to everyone that celebrates it, and 'happy holidays' to those that don't.

OUCH is still recruiting, and operations will begin before the new year.

Please note that OUCH is not accepting any new members just yet. with a fantastic recruitment rate, we are close to capacity right now.

However, we need more trainers. If you are interested in providing expert training on PVP and other aspects of nullsec survival, please talk to me in-game.

Thank you.
