I’ve been on a few mmos where you can block player group invitations and wish there was a feature here in EVE Online. I’ve been in two corporations already and none worked out for me so I’m beginning to think I’m a lone wolf kinda guy (still iike mission fleets though) but I still get random corporation invites in my notifies and receivie mailing list data-scraped out of local and Rookiechat.
I could slap a CSPA on the mail but that won’t stop the corp invites.
I don’t have that app so I don’t know what you are talking about.
Turning off notifications won’t help because it doesn’t address the problem of getting rid of the clutter of invites in the corp queue. I get between two and three of these things a day and while I’m sure it will go away the longer I’m here (cos I won’t be new at some point), it’s a pain now to clean out before I do anything else. Other mmos have that feature so I think it would be a good feature here.
I would like to spare other noobs the hassle I have right now.
More likely that they weren’t a good fit or were two of the many garbage corps that populate the game thanks to bad Dev decisions. My suggestion is to keep an eye out for a group that will suit you better.
CCP should really do something about these awful corps and invite spamming. But really, all they need to do is un-nerf wardecs and bring back AWOXing. The players would sort this problem out themselves over night, with a ton of content to boot.
It’s a tough search. Most corps want me to relocate 30 or 40 jumps away from where I meet up with new friends I made, or head out of highsec. I found that out during the first corp. The second corp I left because one yelled (okay he typed in all caps in chat which is shouting) because I told him my mike was broken in discord.
I’m okay with doing corp events but I shouldn’t have to turn my in-game life on its ear to make my corporation happy.
I learned a new in-game term today. Since joining I learned EVE has a lot of terms not used in other mmos.
It does take a bit of patience and effort. The advert system leaves a lot to be desired, I thought it was a good start but I was expecting it to become more.
If you want an idea what corps operate near you (and are somewhat active), have a look at the local structures (even structures that aren’t public show up on d-dcan), look at offices in stations or just look at people’s info in local.
Groups will often advertise on their main info page or provide a public chat channel that you can join a strike up a conversation.
Have a look at people’s killboards as well. Even losses, as long as they are recent, suggest corp members undock at least once in a while and where they were when they died.
