The Black Widow Company Moves to Nullsec 0.0 on May 18!
BWC's EVE Online Corporation has been planning logistics and preparing for an epic move from the Corporation’s previous base in the lowsec system of Thelan, to their new home in EVE Online’s Nullsec space. Nullsec is what players call the area of space that is not patrolled by the game’s NPC police, CONCORD - and players are free to engage each other at will. This area of space can sometimes be the most dangerous, but with that risk comes great reward. Miners will have an infinite supply of the most valuable ores that the game can offer, combat PVE pilots will have a long list of pirate sites to warp in and clear out, and exploration pilots will have an entire constellation of signatures, anomalies, and wormholes to explore. The corporation will be joining a player alliance called FUBAR, a large Nullsec alliance which is allied with EVE heavyweight alliance Fidelas Constans. Black Widow Company will be entering in the alliance as a full member of FUBAR, with all the perks and requirements that come with it. The move is planned to begin on May 18th.
Previously, BWC tried to stake its claim in Lowsec, an area of EVE Online space that has a reputation of being the stomping grounds of pirates and lone wolves looking for a quick kill. The reputation is correct, and BWC had quite an interesting debut into the game. In true EVE fashion, many BWC players learned through trial by fire - losing ships, and then coming back with a new one. Shortly after our introduction in lowsec system Taff, we joined a Lowsec Pirate Alliance called It Burns when I PVP through contacts within the corporation. Activity stagnated, as much of their corp’s membership were industrial players - and anyone who has played EVE any significant amount of time knows that Lowsec is not the most friendly place for miners. However, BWC’s PVP pilots flourished, participating in many intense fleet engagements.

This move is part of a larger reorganization of BWC’s involvement in EVE Online. The previous OIC of the Company, Technique, recently stepped down and is being replaced by Tarlo7. Tarlo, along with Xzenocrimzie and Hornet1314 have had their noses to the grindstone organizing the logistics required to make such a significant move. The team has overhauled leadership organization and corp logistics, made a set of shiny new doctrine ships, and set in place an ore buyback and manufacturing plan to build capital ships for the alliance. The team is also in the midst of writing a comprehensive training plan for new pilots and veteran pilots alike, to make sure that the process of learning the game is as quick and pain free as possible. For a game such as EVE Online, this is no easy task. The game has over 450 unique ships and over 4,000 unique modules that can be fitted to them. EVE Online has been named, whether lovingly or disparagingly, the most difficult MMO to play - often joked that EVE does not have a learning curve, but a learning cliff. Nonethless, BWC hopes to have a program in place that will help players new to the game to join in on the fun as quickly as possible.
BWC’s focus after arriving in Nullsec will be to establish a core of industry inclined players in order to manufacture many of the ships and tools that the corporation will require such as combat ships and industrial command ships. When we’ve settled in, members will be free to make in game currency in whatever manner they prefer - whether it’s mining, ratting, or PI. For those that are more PvP oriented, BWC is expected to participate in Alliance deployments and fleets - which there will be plenty of. FUBAR is currently engaged with Test Alliance Please Ignore in friendly border skirmishes, however the idea of a full deployment is not far out of the question.
BWC’s move to Nullsec is an excellent opportunity to get involved in the meat of EVE Online, and the part of the game that makes it truly special. Many games allow you to have guild holds or strongholds where you can meet up. In EVE Online, our corporation will own a real section of space, unique from all the others, and not instanced off or private. Its benefits and its responsibilities will be ours to bear, and that is a position that not many corporations ever find themselves in. The best opportunity to join in on what EVE Online has to offer is quickly coming upon you. If you played EVE with us while we were in Taff, or have never played the game before with BWC - now is the time.
Add the game to your jacket, and read the EVE Online section on our forums for more information, or approach Tarlo7, Xzenocrimzie, Hornet1314, or Facefisted.
