I can tell you now that there are a lot of pirate corporations out there in new Eden that claim they are the best, and for some this statement rings true.
I have had so many names thrown at me from people in space that I started writing a list and started my research. You see I like to research everything I do in detail. How to fly a specific ship what is its weakness and its strengths and if this ship fits my flying style at the moment (I am sure it will change in time).
I do this with ships so why not with whom I am going to learn with. They are going to mould me into a killing machine and if they not killers themselves striving to be the best then I’m not going to be the best. I want to be the best so thus the research.
With the list of killer pirate corps and kill board statistics to match I set up a second list of things that I was looking for out of them. It is fine to know what they want from you but what I want is just as important as a New pirate in the making.
- Killers (Very important)
- Top Pirate Corp (I want to learn from the best)
- Active Members (I don’t want to dock and find they all sitting on chairs)
- Friendly Pirates (Willing to help and mold me into a killing machine)
So with this list I set out to do my research and found a Corp that I was very excited to contact – The Bastards. I have on my travels through New Eden heard the name many times and the more I heard about them the more I wanted to join.
So how do they match my list:
They seem active by their kill board and they are in the top 100 corps in New Eden. That’s 3 out of 4. They are killers, a top pirate Corp and they are active by the look of the kill board.
Now the one that’s important … are they Friendly Pirates?
