Blog Banter #22: Corp Loyalty

Welcome to the twenty-second installment of the EVE Blog Banter, the monthly EVE Online blogging extravaganza created by CrazyKinux. The EVE Blog Banter involves an enthusiastic group of gaming bloggers, a common topic within the realm of EVE Online, and a week or so to post articles pertaining to the said topic. The resulting articles can either be short or quite extensive, either funny or dead serious, but are always a great fun to read! Any questions about the EVE Blog Banter should be directed to crazykinux@gmail.com. Check for other EVE Blog Banter articles at the bottom of this post!

This month topic is brought to us by L'Dene Bean of Nitpickin's who asks: Why, and how did you pick your corporation? Is your loyalty solid or just until a better placed organization "recruits" you. The shorter version: Who holds your Unshakable Fealty and why?

  I typically do not participate in the blog banter because I am usually too lazy but this was a really interesting question to me.
  When I first started my EvE career there were thousands of choices in corporations, and I had absolutely no clue about any of them except that I was "supposed" to join a corp as a part of the game.  It was certainly difficult to find a corp that I liked but in the end I settled on an extremely small group who had an awesome name and were very kind to the n00b that I was.  I spent a while in that corp phasing in and out of EvE until I eventually decided I liked the game enough to really commit to it.  I then found Aurelius Federation after a truly exhaustive search and made friends in Providence that I still speak with today.
  After the fall of Providence we tried to prosper elsewhere but attrition and constant alliance "stuff" eventually took it's toll and we shut our doors (for now at least).  I spent some time wondering but have since followed some corpmates to a new home which is also a friendly atmosphere for playing EvE as I see fit.
  At the moment I am on opposing sides with some old friends but that is becoming part of the fun.
