I would say Taggart Transdimensional as well, Evol sure one of the oldest, MASS never used to be MASS in beta..

Maybe Col... to be honest there are so many unknown ancient corps in the game as well.

True, but it's going to be very hard to verify who started first out of the various beta corps.

The blog is since 2004, really depends on how you define active.
M0o for instance is still alive by definition and could therefore be counted as being one of the oldest.
Personally, I would count the corps that are "really" alive and kicking.

Evol, IT (congratz Ave &Co) PIE and COL are the ones that spring to mind.

Thanks for the link Rodj. Very Happy

As for beta I don't remember any of the corps that were alive back then... heck I can't even remember the name of the corp I was in. I just know it never made it in when the game went live. I have to take everyone's word for which corps were around back then.

Endless Corporation. Eve's first papertiger. Razz

They didn't quite make the jump from beta to release, tho. Arguably not even from the pre-beta forum era to actual beta.

X-Trading Corp would come to mind, and Evolution (well, TAOSP from beta times). TTI joined the community at about that period too, if i remember correctly.

But meh, smalltimers if you ask me. Xanadu > * tbh. :D

DDC was also started in the first day or two of TQ being online. SteelRat had to mine veldspar for the corp fee, the story goes Shocked. Not sure what happened in Beta though, that's well before my time.

Both Evol and STK Scientific may be big corps, but they didnt start an ingame corporation (actual ingame corp, not unofficial corp) untill the 31st of may 2003.

TTI, X-trading comp and among other, Nomads founded an official ingame corp on the 29th of may 2003.

All this info can be seen on the info for each corporation under "alliance history", but unfortunately it only shows the date and not at what time of the day the corps were founded, so I guess only CCP can give any real idea about who was actually really "first" first!

So all in all I guess the list that was linked to a little above this post works the best, and really... who cares about being 2nd, that just doesnt get You the chicks does it`?

Its worth noting that the Alliance History thing is bugged for really old corps. Anything that was started before 5/31/03 shows as being started 5/31/03, presumably because CCP wasn't keeping timestamps back then. Really, the only way to tell is to have someone look at the corp ID in the database.

Wasnt aware of that, but since some corps have 2003/05/29 in their infos this must surely be the date that the oldest corps have and thus the ones having 2003/05/31 were made later yes`?

Cataclysm Enterprises are still going aren't they?

Had a close call a couple of month ago with Commander Woodlouse when I was in IAC. 30 in local with me on my lonesome, did the only sensible thing and legged it.

Cathryn Wolve of CE flew the first Raven I ever saw. Rushing Tank CEO, TWD and Tenacha Khan in Ostingele. Those were the days. (Thats the original Cathryn Wolve BTW)

BIG was founded august 2002.

This was back when you could register your corp on the forums only (to have the corp name show under your name)

Hi Pann

You said on the eve-online forum to give you a shout if there where problems with getting Corps registred.

Consider this a shout :-)

I've registred my Corp (called BIG) some 2 weeks ago by now.

The X-Trading Company was founded waaay before the opening of the Eve-Universe, I think they where already formed when the Jumpgate-Universe was young, around late 2001, maybe early 2002, with some players already flying together years earlier in Browser-Universes and VGA-Planets (I know five people back then known as Psi5 Trading Company).

The Eve-Corporation was formed the very first day when the server came up, I know that people hurried quite a lot to be among the first corps, it went like this "Server is up, login, mine Veldspar, pay for corp funding!!!!). Also there are quite a lot people left and active which joined XT right after server came up first (See Kampfgoessn, he has no corp history because it was bugged for the first days).

Well Beta hardly matters since anyone can claim anything about it and never be proven right or wrong.
