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.
