Do you wish EVE were harder? Join Rags to Nags and quit living off of generational wealth. [PVE] [HARDMODE] [<10M SP] [Alpha/Omega]

Rags to Nags is a group ironman project with the ultimate goal of building dreadnoughts from the ground up, using nothing other than materials we’ve harvested, processed, and built ourselves from BPOs we bought from NPCs.

This means:

  • No out-of-corp player-owned structures
  • No contracts, trades, or market transactions with players
  • No wealth you accumulated, received, or stole

The full list of rules and restrictions can be found on our Discord.

We are accepting new accounts (preferred) or accounts with 10M or fewer skill points in Cruisers skill and below willing to start fresh with a meta-fit frigate and a meta-fit Venture, but you can :mechanical_arm: if you choose to start with 0 ISK and a corvette and go run career agents.

Open to players in any TZ. Welcoming to players with developing English skills, especially if you’ll teach us how to say something funny or interesting in your language. No comms requirements at this time. No activity level requirements. This is hard. You’ll probably go at it hard for a few weeks and burn out. That’s ok, we’ll still be here when you want to return.

We are currently stationed in Gallente HS near Amarr borderlands for easy access to missions. We make regular trips through wormholes to rat, explore, and mine in temporarily connected systems. We will soon™ be ready for a move to J-space (or potentially NPC NS) to improve our PI and industry.

Notable achievements:

  • Procurers (before resource wars were deleted)
  • Vexor BPO
  • Built an Navy Apoc before a haitus in late 2020 to send off Dirt, a founding member

Current projects:

  • Grind out PI for an industrial complex
  • Grind out ISK for an industrial complex BPO
  • Complain about pirate frigate and cruiser build costs after the industry changes
  • Flex about playing EVE harder than the average bear

Still recruiting! Perking along!

Still recruiting, and, more importantly, still grinding away and making progress!

We’re around 15 unique players (not counting alts) now, and had three members complete their trial process last week. ISK velocity is trending up well, and T0/T1 PI harvesting for our Athanor and its replacement are complete. We’re working a few minerals for the replacement Athanor we assume we’ll need, and working on P2->P4 PI while we grind ISK for BPOs. A retired player returned, and dumped a huge load of PI into the hangars they’d stashed away while building cloaks, which pushed us well over our short term goals.

More importantly, I think we’re all still having fun (I am, at least). It is enjoyable to feel like small contributions matter. Loss risk is low and expectations (poverty, grind, difficulty) are clearly set/met, leading to good alignment within the corp. No drama thus far, other than the occasional debate about whether using a Gnosis or a Praxis are “cheating.” People genuinely want to make sure it stays slow/hard, not just “rush to endgame.”

I was skeptical at first but after joining it’s been a lot of fun. Great group atmosphere and plenty of things to work on from the moment you log in, but with none of the pressure. It’s really a unique experience, highly recommend.

Bump! Always need more friendos.

PLEX giveaways are in full swing for active members.

We’re having fun. Are you?

Still lots of room for people who want to grow their own drones!

Still up and running - we experienced a minor drama/setback and decided to blow some ISK on Myrmidon and Retriever BPOs, but are still ticking up on our Athanor BPO goals nicely. Drop by the Discord and say hello!
