I am currently in a corp. Hell, I am the leader of the corp. But the corp is failing. Within the span of about 10 days, I lost all three recruiters. One because he was told he could not continue to be a hostile bigot towards other members, one that smashed his entire leg and ended up in the hospital and has been MIA for several weeks as a result, and the third just decided they wanted to go wormhole thus left without warning.
This has led to a decrease in activity, followed by an increase in players whining about lack of activity but an absolute unwillingness to provide activity.
I put out a bounty/payout for recruiting but nobody wants to put in an effort to help the corp. I have too many out-of-game activities to want to do everything myself and help a bunch of people that refuse to help themselves.
Frankly, I never wanted to be a corp leader, to begin with, I was suckered into it by a friend and several of his friends as part of a larger more ambitious project. Naturally they all vanished without a trace as soon as I got fully committed. The fact that I have/had a 170 man corp was never my intention and was half an accident.
I just wanna build/sell stuff. I want to play less than 3 hours a day. Enough time to log in all my alts, start-up all the BPO/BPC/Inventions, start up a bunch of manufactures, place a bunch of buy/sell orders, then log off.
I have discord and guilded. I will not install teamspeak, mumble, ventrillo, yahoo messanger, aol or any other ancient software. I am willing to hang out a bit but I also have another gaming(non-MMO) community and a couple D&D communities I am part of so my attention is often split over the course of a day.
I will say that 99% of my experience is hisec. I would be willing to move to a low/null/WH space if and only if you have (relatively) save refining, manufacturing, and market assets I can make use of. I am capable of mining. I am capable of PvE combat. I have a very mild interest in PvP. But 90%+ of my gameplay is industrial and that’s my requirement to play.
