EVE-Online: Neowin Corporation

Well today I resigned from my dying corporation and reading the other Eve post here I have decided that its time to begin a Neowin corporation. Who would be up for this?

We should do a number of things if this is to become reality.

- Decide what would we focus on... I prefer a bit of everything, mining, research, development, PVP, PVE, etc... have divisions for all but within the same corp.

- Rules

- Mission statement

- Administrative players

Also anyone should be welcome, if you dont play EVE but would like to learn, the Neowin Corporation would be a great place to start.

So anyone up for this? Any ideas? Lets do this!

I'd actually resub for something like this. As is, I know absolutely no one that playes EVE irl, and the trials I've tried out, I pretty much had no idea what to do after I finished the tutorial.

Love the game though, I just felt completely lost.

I might join you, although I'm pretty tempted to form my own, only for the money (although I wouldn't admit that of course :p)

well the last corporation I was in, everyone ditched so it was only me and the CEO until he decided to dissolve the corp this morning, so I do have some experience with management. My specialty is in Diplomacy though. I would prefer more experienced players being the CEO and such but if nobody is willing, I can also give it a try.

Well any CEO that stole money from Neowin Corp would of course be hunted down and executed :p lol

I would be up for it, but it looks like I would have to start a new account as I lost the username and password for it :(

But nonetheless I'm still up for it :)

Steam has a 21 day trial if anyone is interested in the game. I have never played it but, would be interested in giving it a shot with the trial if this goes forward.

Note : Members of EvE who use Steam have commented numerous times that they suffer more latency when playing EvE then players who run direct from the CCP servers.

We should make a corporation that just goes around killing gate camping groups. I've lost 2 well decked out cyclones in the last 4 days to those idiots.

Attention:

The proposal for a Neowin corporation was originally suggested by me. I am displeased with the fact that I was not contacted before this proposal was made however what is done, is done.

I am currently a member of REPO, one of the better mercenary alliances in-game. I may be willing to offer my assistance to the Neowin corporation in the future. I would hate to be arch-rivals. xD

lol, sorry dude. Like I said the idea is from the other Eve thread I made and did not take credit for the idea. So if you want the credit for it, go ahead. I just thought that your idea is a great idea and we definetly need to start a neowin corp for neowin users and to introduce others to the world of EVE, so I thought it would be better to start this thread instead of continuing from the old one.

Let's Start:Does anyone want to start the corporation? I can't, dont have the skills and am currently training Industry V which will take 6 more days. The sooner we get it established, the sooner this idea can get off the ground.

A couple tips to make it easier:

1: Agents have Levels and Qualities. Levels are how hard the missions are. Quality is how much rep you will get and how much they will pay you for doing the missions. Always try to find an agent who has the highest quality of the level you want to play (beginners should stick with level 1 for a while).

2: Agents have different divisions. I will post now what the differences are:

Administration: 50% Kill, 50% Courier

Advisory: 34% Kill, 66% Courier

Archives: 5% Kill, 90% Courier, 5% Trade

Astrosurveying: 40% Kill, 30% Courier, 25% Mining, 5% Trade

Command: 97% Kill, 3% Courier

Distribution: 5% Kill, 95% Courier

Intelligence: 85% Kill, 15% Courier

Internal Security: 95% Kill, 5% Courier

Legal: 50% Kill, 50% Courier

Manufacturing: 5% Kill, 95% Courier

Marketing: 5% Kill, 95% Courier

Mining: 5% Kill, 85% Courier, 10% Mining

Production: 5% Kill, 95% Courier

Public Relations: 34% Kill, 66% Courier

R&D: 0% Kill, 50% Courier(S), 50% Trade

Security: 90% Kill, 5% Courier, 5% Trade

Storage: 5% Kill, 95% Courier(L)

Surveillance: 95% Kill, 5% Courier

------------------------------------------------

Kill: Kill one or more NPCs

Courier: Move or Deliver cargo (usually less than 2k m3)

Courier(L): Move or Deliver large cargo (upto 20k m3)

Courier(S): Move or Deliver cargo (requires specialized science skills)

Trade: Purchace items on the market and then deliver

Mining: Retrieve ore/minerals

3: Certificates are a great way of keeping yourself on track in a chosen career. Say you want to be a soldier, go into the certificate planner and look at basic soldier. It tells you what it expects your training to be at. Once you complete that you move on to the lext soldir level and train those. You don't have to stick precisely to those (I actually only learned about this a month ago and have been doing fine), but it gives you a good idea of how to maximize your training

4: If you have any questions ask in the CORP channel. It's really the RMS channel if you're not in a corporation. There is a lot of childish talk there but I have never seen bad advice on that channel.

Im surprised nobody has taken it upon themselves to start a corporation yet. I would but again, I dont have the skills. Elven I know that you will definetly help out :). We just need someone to place "Neowin" on Eve... once thats done, I am immidietly transfering and gonna help out. We just need that initial corp registration by a member who has the skills to accept multiple members.

Starting a Corporation

If you want to start a corporation, you will need to have the basic Corporate Management skill. In addition, you will need a good chunk of cash, roughly around 1.6 million ISK. From then on the size of your corporation will be a test of your management skills.

Races in Eve are divided on some issues, the Amarr are less than fond of the Gallenteans and the Minmatar tribes still fight for their freedom against the Amarr Empire. With the scenario in mind, if you want to be an equal opportunity employer, you will also need an ethnic relations skill.

From then on, how you run your corporation is your decision. You can make it as complex, or as simple, as you wish. If you want to have accountants, financial officers, security agents, or just about any other conceivable corporate position, you have the power to create it. What limits you might just be your pocket, or your organizational skills!

Requirements for New CorporationsIn order to create a corporation, the player must:

Have the skill Corporation Management. Each Level of this skill allows 10 members to join.

Pay a set-up fee. This varies by region but is usually around 1,599,800 ISK

Be a member of an NPC corporation

To have races other than your own in your Corporation you will need the Ethnic Relations skill
