Today is the aniversary of Noir.'s founding as a mercenary corporation!

I left THE FINAL STAND, then of Divine Retribution/Divine Order alliance, when they decided to go pirate. I wanted to stay with the mercenary lifestyle and try, arrogantly I'll admit, to make a living through PVP in EVE without reptetivly ganking noobs on a gate. No other corps recruiting were doing anything like that at the time so I struck out on my own.

After a few days making the graphics and forum threads, Noir. started taking jobs. Recruiting was hard, and rather than join my one man start up most people just tried to reverse recruit me heh. But slowly I picked up some true believers in time for our break out contract against Exa Nation. While not spectacular statistic wise, it was a reletivly big name and Noir. had a higher efficiency than REPO, who was hired against the same target midway through.

Phoenix Tribe and lost misfits then soon put us through the ringer. While lost many engagements on those contracts, we got a reputation for bringing it and more recruits of higher skill level began to take interest in the corporation.

To respond to weaknesses in the aformentioned contracts, I contacted Viqer Fell of TNT for a training contract. During the course of those exercises we impressed TNT and became fast friends. They honored us with membership in TNT alliance just in time for a monster of a job against BRUCE. Noir. stepped up activity and performance and helped ride BRUCE into the ground.

From there we took one major job after the other, seeing action in Vale, Amarr space, Caldari space, Great Wildlands and Fountain. Through the exposure and tests of these contracts Noir. recruited and cut, recruited and cut, recruited and cut to continually improve quality.

Recently, TNT corporation closed down and Noir. moved forward as it's own brand in the mercenary world but committed to the standards and customer satisfaction established by TNT both before and during our tenure there. This has manifested in our contracts against G00DFELLAS and their residents, Apotheosis of Virtue, Tau Ceti Federation, and now in our current contract against the Neo Spartans.

This year has been a very transformative one for me in EVE, and I could never have imagined Noir. would acheive such rapid success. I'm very proud of the corporation, the pilots, and the friends and foes made along the way.

I would especially like to thank, in no particular order:
-Florret: For hosting our forums and killboard (making all kinds of sanity saving modifications to said killboard)
-Ilie: For designing and maintaining our kick ass website!
-THE FINAL STAND: For giving me an excellent first experience as an EVE merc
-Sabre Wolf and Divine Retribution: For showing me how to take it to the next level
-Viqer Fell: For seeing the potential in Noir. and giving us the chance to step up
-Mr Linderman: For conceiving of our awesome and popular sig line and current banner
-Mindbender: For buying the corp it's post-TNT vent server the same day he got recruited
-Taram Caldar: For going above and beyong the call without being called at all. And for proving me wrong that he was all talk and no walk Laughing
-Zeraphine Akarii and Danny X: For sticking with me

And of course for all our employers, who shall remain nameless Cool, for your buisness and support!

I've been in a lot of alliances and corporations in my time in EVE. Big names... small names... no names at all.. and I'm glad that one day when I was trying to decide what to do next Alek and I had a conversation. I'm proud to call Noir. my home and proud of this achievement in it's history. May we be around and active for many more years. But being here for the 1st one has been mighty sweet.

Happy Birthday, Noir. !! May we celebrate many more together.

Edit: 1st! And... In before the 1 man alt corp crowd :)

On the verge of quitting EVE, I stumbled upon a post in the recruitment forums. Nothing flashy, nothing special, but something in the tone caught my interest. Here I am almost a year later, happy as can be.

Congrats to Noir.! And congrats to Alek for being the most lovable dictator ever Very Happy

Happy Birthday Noir.!!!

The first day I joined this corp I felt something that I really liked... proffesionalism and a sense of purpose. My good friend Nico and myself were told about this corp by our good friend Taram. After I joined I spoke with Alek... it only took me a bit to figure out that I wanted to do something to help. So I picked up the tab for the Vent server and have been happy since to provide it. Now I've been working my ass from -10 and still am... but I still feel apart of the corp. Great bunch of guys, thanks for having me.

Happy Birthday Noir.!!!

I'm glad to have the honor of being in this corp for its Birthday even though I just joined less then a day ago. I've known Alek way before he created this corp and was hanging around the murethand system and talking to him in the murethand channel that was made just for everyone in the area who did missions there. I was a pirate at the time and I've been with Alek, Deja, MechaSoul, and some other great people taking down carriers from other pirates who decided to camp our system gates and station.

After sometime though I moved on to another corp that was more pvp/industrial and operating in 0.0 where I got my negative sec status up and I drifted away from the channel and didn't see Alek anymore, but one faithful day I ran into him in 0.0 while my corp was attacking Elitist Cowards where he had a contract on. After talking to him a bit he tried to get me in his corp but I liked my current corp and have been cruising with them for a long time and didn't want to leave them just like that. So I promised him as soon as this corp died I'd join his, it took a few months but the corp died and I then sent in my application and told Alek I'm ready to join Noir. and the rest of the story you know already as I've been in those battles with you.

So cheers all and glad to fight beside you guys now and in the future.

I was lucky enough (as usually) to find Alek in a good mood and convinced him to take me in the corp when i finished the trial and I had 1mil SP. I flew my first rifter with 3x100 plates and no guns Rolling Eyes next to him in my first battle against some square in space

For the past year Noir. offered me a good time, a good income and i got to see the world for free.

spelling is for girls!

Only having been a member of Noir. for a short period, I have to say that the professionalism and the great atmosphere and bond I've experienced between our pilots has already left its mark on me. I'm proud to call Noir. my home and hope we have many battles to come!

Happy Birthday guys!
