We've been asked about guild structuring in EVE
, so we thought we'd take this chance to touch upon one that aspect of the game for those who haven't ever gotten a chance to play. Corps (or Corporations) are the EVE Online
equivalent of guilds that you would find in many fantasy-based games. When you start out, you are automatically placed into an NPC controlled Corporation along with everyone else in your race, and that is just fine for a while. Eventually, though, you'll want some friends to play with, and you'll need to start looking around on the forums or in-game for a Corp. Now, there are lots of Corps, but finding the right one for you will depend on how you like to play. As such, we can only really recommend one Corp for everyone new to EVE
-- EVE University
. It's a player-run Corporation staffed with old-timers and newcomers alike, all dedicated to teaching new EVE
players the ropes. They'll hook you up with great information and help, so long as you're willing to put some time and effort in to making yourself a better player.
That said, this time we're giving away the last of our EVE Online
100-day time cards. Those of you used to the game will enjoy 100 paid-in-full days of running around with your Corp, with our compliments. For those new to the game, we suggest you get a hold of EVE University
for lots of help and great, solid information on getting used to life in EVE
. By now you should know the drill; 18+, U.S. residents only, blah blah official rules
and so on. So new player or veteran alike -- leave a comment by tomorrow at 4:15 PM, and you could be the one lucky person who wins this time card![EDIT] - This contest is closed. We will be announcing a winner shortly. Thanks!
