Hello All

well iv come here to ask of good ways of getting members into a new corp? im not new to eve just to creating a corp. I decided to Create my clan on eve after 6 years on the game freelancer hence the nwo but it seems quite hard to find members as all of them want to go to Large corps not ones just starting out. Any help on this matter would be truelly greatful

Thanks

Scar

I've run into the same problem with my corp. The best thing you can do is just be friendly and don't lose faith. It takes a special kind of player to jump into a small corporation and build it up, and the majority of players, from what I've seen, are unwilling to do that. Some do though.

I feel your pain, man. Good luck with recruiting.

Recruitment Guide from EON

This is a pretty decent guide. Once you have worked out exactly what you want your corp to do/focus on it becomes a lot easier to sell yourself to people, regardless of the method you use to attract people.

(the following is a completely ignorant 6-day newbie opinion. viewer discretion advised.)

It's hard to imagine any corps actually having a hard time recruiting. At my starting institute, there are so many newbs around 24hr/day that it seems they could fill every active corp in the game with one new member each. I guess many of these 'newbs' aren't really "unique" characters, maybe.

Its hard for the smaller corps to find people. The majority of people want to go straight into PvP, into the large corps in low and nullsec. They'd rather be expendable frigate #23 or something. Look at the recruiting thread as well, if you don't offer PvP, low/nullsec access, <40 members, and a few other things, you essentially have nothing to offer to the vast majority of people looking for a corp.

It takes a player with a certain demeanor to join with a small corporation that they actually have to work to build. Its a lot tougher to build something from scratch than it is to join something established and just follow orders.

But yeah, its easy for the big corps to recruit, they have money and resources that the smaller, newer ones just dont have.

Personally, Im fine with smaller corps. I'd rather build up some skills and experiance before I jump into PvP. I prefer to do things right, instead of just jumping in blindly.

First things first... you have misspelled the name of your corp. While neither may be true, and people make mistakes, this says quite clearly to me and those like me that you are either a ****** and any effort I add will be wasted; or you do not care because you are just planning on setting an absurd tax rate and absconding with the corp hanger.

((Yes, I am aware that in your case, you just wanted a name that was already taken. Your lack of ability to accept the fact that the name was already taken does not improve your arguement.))

Second, do you have a clear set of goals. All too commonly, small corps trying to start out try to be everything and everyone, desperate enough to take anyone that will join them. Thus, you end up with 5 or 6 people, all with differing goals and playtimes. Nobody gets to know each other, everyone is online by themselves, and the entire reason for joining a corp in the first place is lost. In this environment, no matter how much effort one or two people provide, it is all going to blow up in some massive drama.

You need a specific focus. That focus is not PvP... 4 or 5 new players does not make a pvp force. However, you can start a corp to run missions or complexes, in XXXX space, during XXXX primetime. From there, you have something to offer, and build upon.
