Well hello folks. You might be saying “Why Gix ole pal, you seem to not like AG, why would you help them?”. I’d have to say seeing them just flail about sadly, is well sad!
Below shall be a starter’s guide to how to actually AG effectively. Now the game is always changing, so this guide won’t be the end all, be all. Rather, it is a jumping off point lets say.
You will never stop ganking as a movement. It is simply impossible brosef.
You will not be thanked much for your work.
You may end up becoming good friends with the gankers!
AGing will not make you cash.
You are not saving the world, you’re merely playing a vidya game and making content.
Now then, let’s discuss some topics. It’ll be labeled in different ways. Take everything with a grain of salt, and use what you like and don’t use what ya don’t.
Yesm, you’re going to need several corps to pull this off. If you want to be effective you will have to be social, likable and actually have leadership capabilities! Shocking, I know.
Below will be listed the various corps you may need. Also you will have to go out and recruit these peeps so there’s that.
-These homies are the ones patrolling Uedama and other systems to prevent ganks as they go down
-They will be the ones interacting the most with perps and potential victims
-Most visible of the corps
-You’ll need an indy corp to produce ships/equipment to use and ship loss replacement
-Will need protection from police force as once you start doing your job right, people will come to kill your miners
-Will need miners/indy/trades people
-You need cash to fund the AG lifestyle
-Will need mission runners/abyss runner etc to farm the ISKies
-These guys could also farm CONCORD tags, as you will need them
-They will get targeted by gankers, so again may need protection
Anbu Black Ops(for the weebs)
-These guys should be the best PvPers your corp has
-These guys gank the gankers
-You want them to target the nado homies and any gate camps proactively
-Also could go over after low sec hot spots
Unnamed Spy Corp That Does EVE Stuff
-You will need some spies in the ganker community
-They will have to gank people to build street cred
-Will need trustworthy people who also don’t mind betraying other people’s trust
-Will need players able to do the long con and sacrifice for that cause
-You will need locator agents to find peeps
-Will need peeps skilled at using F10 and zkills to bounty hunt people down
-Will need jump clones at all the hot spots
-Will need stash of ships everywhere for peeps to use, fully fitted and combat ready
-Will need Discord etc to coordinate movements
-Will need to hold regular PvP trainings with corp members
-You need a good PR rep!
-This can be thru forum posts, reddit etc
-You need to spread your propaganda far and wide to let the people know how good of a job you’re doing
-AGing suffers from a lot of pompous peeps, you need to ensure to make your corp cool
-Good PR will help your movement, garner more community support and make your job easier
-Again, I must stress you have to be cool
-If you’re gonna RP, pick a doctrine and stick to it
-If you cannot be consistent, no one will respect the RP
-RP may constrict your recruitment as not everyone will be down to RP

Okie, so that may seem like a lot of common sense. However in the end, you’re making your own content. Running this effectively will take a ton of a work. If you do it right, you will definitely make an impact and have a lot of fun. You need to inspire and run your corp well.
It will take a lot of recruiting, and it will be a process. You can do it small time, but it’ll just take longer.
As I said before, you’ll never stop ganking entirely. However you can def make an impact and have a lot of fun. Also remember the gankers are just players too.
They are attempting to engage in their playstyle and you in yours. Respect your targets. Don’t fall into the holier than thou trap. It’ll just make you look like a nub.
-If you drop me a cool 100 mil, I’ll shoot you an EVEmail
How else would you run an AG alliance?
P.S. I def wouldn’t allow Drac in it
