For starters and in the spirit of 'full disclosure' I must come right out and admit that I do not meet of all of your clearly stated requirements. This, however, is not mere oversight on my part (or stupidity) but rather its due to the fact that a member (Arianna Shadowhawke) told me to go ahead and apply anyhow- So here I am. =)
I have been playing VO for about 4 days and am a full subscriber- In fact, it took me well under an hour into the tutorial before I subscribed. I have been looking for a game like this for a very long time and actually found out about VO while browsing for a single player space sim (had no idea there was an online game in this genre) and I have loved these types of games since the days of elite. In other words, I will be sticking around unless they go F2P and add a cash shop since I only enjoy online games with a full access sub. Once SC comes along its possible I will play that but atm I am here and dedicated to learning this game and becoming part of the community.
I cannot say I ever play at a 'set time' since I am all over the board. My activity level is pretty high most of the time though and I play during all hours. Generally this has been overnight since I have started but that will change all the time based on tons of things irl. Regardless, I will be active in the community and am a helpful and friendly player for the most part looking to learn the finer points of the game and working towards a collective goal with a good group.
My combat level is 1. My light weapons are at 1. My heavy weapons are at 0, I think...It isnt pretty. =P
That said, I am not a combat focused player.My plan is to make enough money and level up my mining/trading so that I will be fully self sufficient and able to start in on the combat part with money and ships not ever being an issue. I can jump right in and learn without it hurting my pocketbook or having to mooch off of people. So my trading is at level 2 (3 soon) and mining is at 3 (4 very soon) and I have quite a bit of money already tucked away.
But I will fight whenever needed. Even now with my limited experience I would join a battle- I am merely saying I am focusing on other things atm and probably will never be really combat focused although I do plan on learning and partaking of battle =D
I have no alts and probably never will since I am petty sure I can max every skill with one guy. IF there is some kind of cap , I will be maxigng this guy (DarKPenguiN) as a miner and will then make a combat alt.
