A corporation divided. (self.Bravenewbies)
23 ups - 4 downs = 19 votes
Alright. In light of the divided opinions regarding the idea of joining FW, I'm temporarily calling off the planned move tomorrow and setting up a discussion on the subject.
Current poll results show a split straight down the middle: http://poll.pollcode.com/fgldov_result
We've all agreed we don't want to stay in Hek and that we want to move to lowsec. The question is, what do we want to do there? I want you to discuss things in a civilized manner. Make your arguments. Give others the benefit of doubt. We are in the process of defining our future as a corporation. There is no room for nonconstructive discussion here.
Here are our choices the way I see it. Feel free to correct me and suggest other options. I'm a newbie operating on limited information just like the rest of you. After the discussion has reached a point of maturity where we can see our options, I will set up a poll and we shall make our choice.
1. We move to lowsec and claim a system with no alignments. We will own our own piece of space and remain unaligned. We might not be able to move supplies out to a lowsec station since our high public profile means lowsec inhabitants will catch wind of what we are doing. For the same reason, we have to consider the possibility that large pirate corporations will focus on us. We won't be particularly close to a trade hub. Compared to faction warfare, individual players may not make as much money. It's a tempting idea but also one that carries with it a high risk.
We move to lowsec and pick a faction warfare system as our home. We pick one next to highsec so supply for local markets will be easier. We join FW, and fight for our chosen faction. Fights will be easier to find and LP rewards means that individual pilots can make substantial money fighting. We will lose half of empire space but there won't be a lack of trade hubs or missions to do. After we have won our battles and can all afford many times more ships than we can now, we can decide to leave FW and head on to our next big goal, be it neutral lowsec or straight-out nullsec.
Keep in mind, this is not discussion on which FW faction we are joining, but about whether we join FW at all. If FW wins out, then we talk about factions.
