[EVE Online] The last few weeks have been interesting to say the least. Our corporation (Ars Caelestis) had another corp we highly respected merge into ours. Shortly after that there was an election for the HUZZAH Federation president. The leader of the corp that merged into ours decided to run and one other player in another corp also decided to run. The election was close but a winner was chosen.
Everything changed for us after the election. It became clear that our corporation’s direction and goals did not really match up with those of our alliance any more. We discussed it at length and decided to leave the alliance so we gave our official notice. Not long after that the corp that merged into ours announced they wanted to go their own way as well and left our corporation and the alliance. My time with HUZZAH was very enjoyable and exciting and I won’t soon forget all the fun we have had.
Our leaders approached a few alliances that we were interested in and narrowed our choices down to two options. The seperation from HUZZAH became official and we moved out of the area, back into empire space.
While waiting for some information about our two options, we were suprised by third option to join Ascendant Frontier (ASCN). After all of our corp members reviewed the goals and ideals of the alliance, we recognized it would be a great place for us and chose to join them. ASCN is currently the largest alliance in the game, so things should be interesting in the future.
IT’s funny for me too, because most of the other corps I had considered applying to way back when I started playing are all currently in ASCN.
All of this activity is reminding me of what I like so much about EVE. This is all player created content. I find myself feeling like I am playing the game even when I am not logged into it. We have been debating on the forums, discussing possibilites and voting on choices. It’s been very exciting and enjoyable for me. It may not be for everyone, but I am really enjoying the political side of this game. And to suprise me even more, I am enjoying a PvP game. I used to avoid them like the plague, but this just works for me.
