I’ve been enjoying the industry aspect of the game over the past several years. At the moment I have three accounts with 6 characters dedicated toward industry production. The other 3 characters on the accounts are dedicated to pvp.
Overall, industry is way more enjoyable than running missions (though I have an optimized mission setup that grinds level 4s well enough, it is mindnumbing). I would prefer to keep advancing in this profession and one possible direction is to join up with a corp/alliance and produce for them. My main question here, is what is the benefit of joining up with others? Is it worthwhile to move my industry operation into null/low with a particular group of folks?
To further explain my 6 characters (industry):
Chars1-3, decent subcap industry with science skills all around level 4ish, getting a bit deeper for T3 production
Char4, training up
Char5-6, slotted for training in the future, probably via multi-training certificates
Capital atm is around 25 bil dedicated toward industry, usually 1-4 billion liquid over the course of the week to redo jobs and so on.
Any opinions are appreciated, thanks.
