Gen: Making friends

So you have all read about how we are no longer part of the PIES Alliance, in fact since ABADD left the PIES Alliance has pretty much disbanded, I don’t know the reasons why the other corps left only mine own and I stand by my decision to leave.

Alliances are great, as long as you find a good one that communicates well, gives you direction and makes you feel a bit of something “bigger and better”, one day ABADD will probably join another Alliance but I will take the time to make sure it’s the right one.

That being said Eve can be a lonely place especially for smaller corps trying to find their way, it always nice to have other people to talk with and work with especially if you are sitting along in corp chat (as we all must find from time to time).

A couple of days after leaving PIES, I was approached by the CEO of Legion of Darkwind (L.OD) asking if I would interested in becoming “allies” or blues as it is often referred to. L.OD like ABADD are a small corp just finding their way but we share similar interests and goals, and as they are located in the same region of space PyroTech03 (the L.OD CEO) asked if I would be interested in forming an informal alliance between our 2 corps.

I finally got myself a bit more organised and joined the in-game channel that PyroTech03 created and this morning (in between getting ready for work) had a chance to chat with some of the guys from L.OD. They all seem a nice bunch and over the next few weeks I hope to get the chance to fly with some of them and maybe organise a corp vs corp frigate competition.

I understand the “need” for Alliances in Eve but for us smaller corps, this kind of informal Alliance is a great way to start, it will enable us to make friends, build relationships, without all the politics that is very often forced upon us in the larger Alliances. I encourage all the smaller corps to look at this, making other corps blue is a good way to help both your corp and the other corps grow into something bigger and better on your own terms in your own time.

If you are small corp looking for some friends to fly with now and again, drop Pyrotech03 an eve mail and ask about joining this coalition of corps as we try to make our way through Eve.

Fly safe (and don’t forget, you don’t have to be alone).

    Glad to have had ya this morning! Look forward to meeting with some of your guys as well.

    To the readers of this blog/post….even if you don’t want to come fly with us, definatly look into these (in)formal methods of making friends….make a channel and a mailing list where the CEO’s can post stuff and just start talking to people! It don’t take much effort and it’s amazing the results and what it can work into.

    @Durz0: I thanked you in my recent blog post by the way…get a chance come over and check it out.

      No nothing that extreme, in a 1v1 each player jettisons a round of ammo, take the other persons dropped ammo then you are red to each and can engage. No standings drop either (I believe).
