A home for all small-gang PVPers and pirate filth in the European TZ: ★★ Sons of Luminaire ★★

Sons of Luminaire
100% small-gang PVP, 100% EU timezone, no sov, no Alliance, no big blues. Kill everything.

★★★

What We Offer:

  • 100% PVPat least 3 corp-run small-gang PVP fleets (5-15 guys) per week, if not more, in both low-sec and null and using a broad array of sub cap ships;
  • A genuinely helpful, friendly community of 100% European timezone :eu: :uk: players who all play this game to PVP;
  • A real appreciation for the fact you have a real life: a casual approach to the game, we have no formal activity requirements;
  • The ease of staging out of Jita 90% of the time –easy, no jump freighters required, and no 10 hour move op to get your stuff to the corp’s staging;
  • A stocked corporation office and cloning facilities in one of the hottest systems in low-sec, which we also occasionally stage from.

And most importantly…

  • The truth. We’re a small, close-knit corp and want to stay that way, meaning the nights we’re not running any fleets, it might be quiet. We don’t have 100+ people in corp chat, ten fleets a day, strat ops every second hour, ratting space, dedicated logistics, or moons for you to mine. That ■■■■ is pretty boring anyway. All we expect you to do is make ISK your way (whether that’s scamming, stealing, missions, or with your credit card) and use it to buy ships so you can come shoot things with us. The only thing we’re concerned with is PVP, and we’ll do it as often as we can.

You can complete our stupid recruitment quiz to get an idea of whether you’d be a good fit, if you like. It takes 60 seconds.

★★★

Background:

The Sons of Luminaire has a storied (if short) history. Born in mid-2019 with 10 members who were fed up with FEDUP, their Alliance at the time, the corp quickly grew to 40 active, decent members and became at the time one of the top killing European timezone :eu: :uk:, small-gang PVP, sub-cap only corps in any low-sec region. Although, it was more through luck than skill.

In late 2019 the corp’s staging citadel was laid siege to by FEDUP, its former Alliance, in response to…

… well, acts of piracy committed by the corporation in FEDUP’s sovereign space. We won.

The corp is small but active now, having left faction warfare and with a focus on broader small-gang PVP in low-sec and particularly in null, taking advantage of the new ESS system to slaughter hordes of nullbears.

The founding concept of the corp is and always will be:

  • to do small-gang PVP,
  • to have a good time doing it.

Here’s some poor quality PVP videos:

★★★

What We Want:

  • PVP-focussed pilots who are familiar with game mechanics and solo or small-gang PVP, and have a few hundred kills to prove it; and at least 15 million skillpoints focussed on PVP skills;
  • Self-sufficiency – you will need your own ISK, and a can-do attitude towards the game;
  • A microphone and an ability to speak on comms when needed, usually Discord or TS;
  • European (or near) timezone – nearly all corp fleets start between 1830 – 2000 EVE;
  • A social attitude - we want cool, relaxed people to fly with who are willing to get involved.
  • People who are active enough to log in at least once a week (or thereabouts) to fly with us.

Interested? You can join our Discord and ping @Recruiter in public chat to get our attention.

The best corp I’ve found so far. Small corp but the core is of very experienced pilots who always can show you a trick or two. Relaxed attitude in corp, but try-hard mode in fleets, always trying to push well above their weight.

These guys are the reason that my return to the game in 2019 after 8+ years away became permenant. Good people and good pilots!

Looking for more people to come blow things up with us. Didn’t get too many kills tonight but I’m sure there’s more to come…

Took out ESS comp last night, 4 * BNI, 2 * Auguror, 1 * Oracle, 1 * ONI. Filament to 3 dead systems, end up in BRAVE staging where a 20-30 man Caracal fleet is assembled, they warp off when we try to fight them (https://youtu.be/D59dJwdFtpI). End up in Frat space, they bring many Feroxes and Muninn and 7 Logi plus Vargur plus Armageddon plus jams, we kill Blackbird, lose a BNI and Oracle (https://br.evetools.org/related/30003210/202012042200).

Not the evening we were looking for but it was entertaining watching one of our logi getting killed by faction police in Jita as the rest of the fleet left by filament and then navigating him back to us via wormhole…

Want to come be a scrub with us? Join today.

Another roam tonight, 3 x Harb, 1 x BNI, 1 x solo logi Loki, 1 (2, for a bit) x Omen Navy Issue. BRAVE yet again weren’t brave, and then we almost got dropped by Dead Terrorist Loki fleet but instead killed all their dictors after burning off the gate.

Went to PH space via Thera, found a good fight, loads of guys warped in - we killed a couple of battleships incl Mach and Praxis, lost our Starac because I’m terrible at logi, and called it a night. Really good fun in the final fight with Horde.

Had a little low-sec ice storm filament roam tonight. Our fleet:

2 x HFI
1 x Gila
1 x Phantasm
1 x Scimi
1 x Huginn (but he DC’d early on…)
1 x Stiletto
1 x Vagabond

Found two fights:


Scimi died to Trig gate guns whilst tackled. Boo.
Ambushed some people outside a site. Sacrificed the Vaga to hold tackle on the Abaddon. It was worth it.

Killed a few other things too.

Still recruiting! Low-sec roamed again tonight. Every time we end up in lowsec it usually seems to involve brawling EVE Uni. We try to give them a fair fight…

Tried to catch some incursion ratters, gave up after waiting ages, then went out in kitchen sink frigates and dessies (Kiki, Magus, AFs) with ice storm filaments with a couple of old friends. Killed some odds and ends.

Some really good fights tonight. Took home about 2.5 billion in loot. Lost our logi Loki to a Thrasher gang. Taken on several new members who are keen as mustard to blow ■■■■ up.

Still recruiting boys.

Tonight, we ended up in Black Rise three times thanks to filaments…

We had 1 x blaster Talos, 1 x pulse Oracle, 1 x Loki (webs), 1 x Cerb (anti-tackle), 1 x Bifrost, 1 x Inty.

Only had one real fight, https://br.evetools.org/br/5fdfca7a4cec62001a940662, which didn’t really end too well for us - they had some ■■■■ hot interceptor pilots and also three logi, which the BR doesn’t include. Oracle applied quite well but Talos just had too short range to really do much. 2 x Oracle would probably have wiped out their fleet.

Did kill a Rattle, though! https://zkillboard.com/kill/89399904/

Not many kills to be had tonight. Roamed in 2 x Oracle, 1 x Loki, 1 x Cerb, 1 x Hurricane Fleet, 1 x Jag, 1 x Male, 1 x Punisher, 1 x Maulus (for our two new guys). This is all we got, not for lack of trying. One of our filaments did take us to New Eden though, so we at least had a bit of a lore tour…

Taking a small break over Christmas, but that doesn’t mean we’re not recruiting! Next roam is Sunday.
