AGONY UNLEASHED IS RECRUITING (Euro, North American and Australian Timezones)

We're looking for:
1. Experienced PVP Pilots (preferred)
2. Highly skilled players ready to dedicate themselves to PVP but with limited experience
3. Inexperienced players who love to PVP

AGONY is a PVP Corporation. That is the central tenet of our existence that all other things revolve around. We PVP because it is how we enjoy Eve. We teach PVP because we want everyone to share the joy of a good fight and a great kill. We develop PVP tactics and explore the rules of Eve to give us an edge when we PVP. It's all about the PVP.

AGONY thrives off of competition and adversity. We avoid setting blues as being too political, and safe systems are boring. Wormholes with their lack of local can generate interesting opportunities so we occasionaly make trips in that direction. Sometimes we fight outnumbered and outgunned. Sometimes we ambush the unwary. Sometimes, we'll go into a fight that we expect to lose for the fun of the fight and for the possibility of taking some of the other guys down with us. It doesn't matter if it's T1 Frigs or Black Ops Battleships, if it's PVP, we like it. No matter what we're doing, we aim to combine a cool, calm tactical assessment with disciplined execution and, afterwards, a whole lot of laughs. We rely on being more skilled and plain better than our opponents. If we lose then we evaluate what we could have done better and make sure we do it that way the next time. We're here to have fun, not to sit around talking about our kill to death ratio, so we get back in our ships and do it all again...preferably in a new way.

Agony's recruitment process focuses on quality rather than quantity. AGONY is focusing on recruiting experienced PVP pilots but this doesn't mean we only take players with 10s of millions of SP, or only take people with years of 0.0 experience. We focus on the player rather than the character or the experience. Knowledge can be learned, experience can be gained, and Isk can be earned, but a jackass will always be a jackass.

Agony seeks out recruits who want to be part of something special, an equal instead of a peon, people who want to contribute to the corporation and help shape its future. We are looking for those who like PVPing and want to maintain and evolve Agony through leadership, volunteering, innovation, inspiration, management, planning and organization. Simply put we are looking for intelligent, enthusiastic, and proactive people. We use our probationary period to get to know our members, and evaluate whether or not they live up to the standard of an Agony CORE member. There are no "normal" members in Agony, we don't carry deadwood, you're either a CORE member or you aren't.

AGONY is not for everyone. We have a tight-knit community, a great group of friends, and we will keep it that way. You've got to fit into and enjoy our community as well as be able to thrive in hostile space. We live a tough PVP life where you have to be able to solo PVP as well as be part of a team, whilst also earning your own Isk to keep in PVP ships. It can be tough for people to adapt to this environment and we have a recruitment process that helps us get to know applicants before they even join as a TRIAL member.

AGONY is not a PVP training Corporation. We are not looking for people who want to 'try' PVP. If you are not an experienced PVPer, you'll have to show us that you're interested and dedicated enough to live the AGONY lifestyle.

Please have a look at our wiki and post up any questions you may have.

Cheers

I enjoyed your 8 days in Eve posts. I found AGONY after 8 days in Eve Very Happy. See you on the 21 Nov BASIC.

Q: Isn't AGONY just a PvP school?

A: AGONY is a 0.0 PvP corp that teaches PvP, not a teaching corp that does 0.0 PvP. Agony Unleashed sponsors and conducts the PvP University as a service to the Eve community. Although the frigate skills are the most basic and essential skills for proficient PvP and are the focus of many of our classes, as a corporation we develop and use tactics involving all varieties of ships.

Q: Do I have to teach classes or be involved in helping to teach?

A: No, not if you don't want to. You're always welcome to take classes or even to teach them (after some training). If you want to, you can help with a class by running as a CovOps or skirmisher or flying a dictor.

If all you want is to PvP, you can just shoot stuff with the team whenever you like.

Q: What kind of gangs does AGONY run?

A: AGONY teaches classes about T1 Frigs, Destroyers and Cruisers. These are great PVP ships and we have a lot of fun in them. However, we fly T2 gangs every day. AGONY regularly flies Battlecruiser fleets and high speed HAC gangs. We also do major operations such as remote repair Battleship gangs and Black Operations. Our normal process is to develop tactics, test on SiSi and then kill on Tranq Very Happy

Q: I'm an experienced PvPer and I can fly an inderdictor, but my corp doesn't really know how to use them and I'm not really certain about how I can best use it in a gang. Can Agony help me?

A: Agony has a number of experienced Interdictor pilots who can help you get the best out of your ship.

Q: I hate gate camping. Does Agony do a lot of this?

A: Agony loves gate camping. Actually, that is not accurate. Agony loves Gate Campers! They make for lovely targets. Especially when they are fighting it out with someone who had just come through the gate.

While we do occasionally camp a gate, we have much more fun roaming around 0.0 looking for targets who want a fight. Some we lose and some we win, but the goal is to have fun, not be bored staring at immovable objects.

Q: Is it true that Agony has no blues?

A: Yes. We specialize in small gang tactics and blues just limit who we can shoot at. Many of our pilots are former large alliance pilots that tired of the laggy cap slugfests and enjoy Agony's focus on small gangs and a return to tactics not just numbers.
