GiantBomb Corp.

#1 Posted by LCadejoNegro (18 posts) -

Hi, i have been following the crew since the good old HotSpot days, just never posted. I have been wating to play this game since its release, but i just dont want to go in alone. So does anyone want to create GiantBomb Corp.? I think it would be awesome to play with the community of this awesome site, well atleast much better then playing alone...lol. This needs to happen, and if it does, then GiantBomb Corp., (or what ever the name maybe) has one member. But if not, and anyone just wants to play then please email me at moises319@gmail.com, or just pm i guess. So yeah, what do you guys think?

Ps. I played WoW for a week and got bored...lol
Pss. Sorry for my inglsih, im not a native speaker...NICA 4 LIFE!!..lol

I'm thinking about giving this game a shot, and if I get into it, I'd be up for a GB corp. Although it should be called LuchaCorp.

It's great to see some people thinking about giving this a go. As much as I'd love for there to be a Giant Bomb corp, when it comes to corps it's better to join one that is more oriented to your style of play. If anyone needs any help you can contact me in-game as Jerik Havo, I'll see what I can do.

Lucha Corp....Fucking awesome! i just tried the game using the 14 day trail, looks pretty nice so far. Find me as LCadejoNegro in EVE.v

Yea, I've been trying out the game through the trial too, it's not bad so far, my contact on EVE is:

Strat Agemist and/or Carlos1408

P.S.: Lucha Corp. sounds awesome!

I would say to first check out Eve Online's web site http://www.eve-online.com and players guide. They have some good resourses there.

#12 Posted by tekmojo (2302 posts) -

I'll create an Alliance with you but I already created a corp. with my bro. "Wings of Blood"(corp. name) on server - "Tranquility" if anyone plays EVE. I just started like 3 weeks ago but I'm learning pretty fast. Online name - Futek.

#13 Posted by Driadon (2998 posts) -

You don't have to tell us server, there really only is one :P (Unless you play on the beta server called Singularity a lot... O.o)

I can;t decide if I want to get into another MMO,  or if ill be able to play it often enough. But if it I do, a LuchaCorp would be awesome.

As usual Matty you always come up with the best ideas.
#24 Posted by harris (848 posts) -

I am currently unsubscribed.. but I have been wanting to play again. I played for a month or two previously. If I can confirm I'll have some peeps to play with, I'd love to resubscribe!

Also LuchaCorp sounds incredible.

Only thing about started a new corp, is that it's a long hard road. Really, you need at least 20-30+ regular players in a corp to even begin to function properly, and pay for upkeep. It's also vital that before too long of a time goes by, you start looking for an alliance to put your corp in. Alliances are a huge part of the game, especially for smaller corps. A smaller corp can thrive if it's part of a big alliance.

If you guys think there are enough people on GiantBomb interested in creating a corp, then i say go for it. But be warned, running a corp in EvE is almost a full time job. It's not like forming and running some easy peezy guild in other MMO's. You will be the CEO of a Corporation. Which is almost as complicated as being a CEO of a real life Corporation.

This is true. Maybe we should join up with an established corp or use a chat channel?
#28 Posted by MAST (734 posts) -

The one suggestion i would give anyone starting up on EvE; Join the EvE University corp. Being in a corp is vital, but finding one that will take in noobs is not that easy. EvE University is run by pros, and is all about taking in noobs. They have regular, nightly classes where they teach you the basics of EvE, and eventually move you into some of the more complex aspects of it. They are really good at feeding you a little bit at a time, so that you don't get overwhelmed. It's the entire point of EU. Teaching noobs.

Once you graduate, you can either stay in EvE University, and eventually become an instructor yourself. Or you can move on to any number of corps. Because by the time you graduate from EU, you have quite a lot of skillpoints earned, and experience under your belt. So most corps will want you... It would also be easier to create, and run your own corp after you graduate.

Yeah the university Corp is a great group to get involved with for beginners, - Mast speaks the truth here -im stocking up on most of the corporate skills as we speak just to be sure if this takes off we can handle it (God damn ethnic management skills are necessary in order to allow other races to join the corporation).

At the moment i have a small fleet of stronger than averge Gallente frigates loaded andd ready to go alongside the skill books needed to operate them and their weaponry, they are fairly expendable so i have no problems whatsoever with throwing a few out to any bombers who fancy giving eve a try - i think it might be a agood idea for those of us here (seemingly MAST, harris and mercenary) to meet up and add each other and maybe we could personally lend a hand ang guide these guys through the rat missions and into their own arcs??

What races do you guys play as- im gallente

I never post here, but just chiming in that I've been playing Eve lately (have played probably about 6 months total since I created my character in 2006) and may be willing to join a Giant Bomb corp.

Hit me up in game. Eve name: Velryn

#31 Posted by harris (848 posts) -

Downloading (huge) patch now. I'll add all the names mentioned here when it's done.

See you all in game soon :)

Edit: Patch failed... This might take a while
Edit 2: Worked this time! I'm in and playing. I'm a bit rusty so I'm just going to do some easy stuff in a cheap frigate for a while.

#34 Posted by harris (848 posts) -

Ok, so we have a few people together in a chat channel now. Join the GiantBomb channel in game! (Channels & Mailing Lists -> Join -> Type in GiantBomb -> Ok)

#39 Edited by McPaper (255 posts) -

I already joined Fujiku, Inc. or Fujiko or something like that.  I've spent
hours migrating my stuff to their home system so it makes it tough to
switch corporations without having to go through the same old process
again.
