The Powder and Ball Alchemists Union
“Turning Lead into Gold since 2008”

Who we are:

  • A focus on team play, with consideration of an individual’s flexibility in real life.

  • Mature players who are liberal, educated, and balanced with a healthy sense of humour.

  • A small Nullsec PvP corporation, currently in an Alliance partnership with The Unthinkables [INK]. We join INK fleets as we please, and have access to the benefits of Alliance resources. There is enough going on that you can always find some action. There is a core group in EU and NA timezones, and we fly with some great FCs.

  • We are friendly with N3, and have joined some of their large fleets and roams. INK is slightly nomadic, and deploys to different regions for fights. We’ve deployed with INK to Geminate, Fountain, and Curse, as well as fighting in our own space in Wicked Creek. We also do a lot of roams and fleet operations, scaling from bomber fleets and hotdrops, to large fleets around 150-200 pilots.


What We're Seeking:

  • Active US Timezone (EST Preferred) focused 0.0 PvP Pilots. EU pilots are welcome, as the timezone is active at the Alliance level.
  • 15M SP minimum encouraged, but not a requirement.
  • Willing to live in Lowsec/Nullsec, and participate in fleets at least weekly.
  • Team players with a mature attitude, interested in learning to PvP in all scales of combat.
  • Good sense of humor, drama free.
  • Financially self sufficient to make enough ISK to cover ship losses.
  • Microphone for voice comms (Teamspeak, Mumble).
  • Full API check and voice interview as part of application.


What We Offer:

  • Daily Corp & Alliance level PvP Operations through all timezones.
  • Active leadership and members who enjoy mentoring new players. Lots of advice on ship fitting, PvP tactics, and fleet operations.
  • Fleets ranging from black ops hotdrops, frigate and cruiser roams, to large scale fleet battles.
  • Access to corporate and alliance resources, intel channels,
  • Logistics and scouting for assistance moving into our current deployment area. Corporate jump freighter service is available.
  • Corporate and Alliance infrastructure - Teamspeak, Mumble, Forums, Jabber, Wiki, Website, Killboard.


Media:

Some fun videos - Check the INK Video Productions channel for more, as we’re in a lot of them:

We've just deployed to a new area with lots of opportunities for glorious battles big and small. Our corp and alliance leadership work incredibly hard to keep us stocked with quality pew-pew. :)

We'd like to pay homage to the BRAVE Ventures who perished so cheerfully after hotdropping our gate camp. None survived, but at least they had fun!

Yesterday was a very interesting day, full of fleets big and small. One of the best parts about our current setup and compatriots is that we can pull from a lot of expertise as far as fittings, FCing and logisticals. In 4 hours we did everything from roams to hotdrops and more.

IdeaBIG NEWS!!! We're on deployment! ArrowArrowArrowArrowArrowArrowArrowArrowArrowArrowArrow

Our top brass work extraordinarily hard to keep up flush with good targets. In that interested, and now that we've effectively secured our sov against all that would oppose us, we're traveling the spaceways in search of good pew-pew!

We do these deployments often and it's pretty amazing. It's basically the best of all aspects of nullsec life. You have your sov in one hand and all the war targets you can handle in the other! Not every corp and alliance could do this, mind you. one needs actual skill and COURAGE to run the way we do. We make it look good though.Cool

JOIN NOW!!! Big smile

IdeaIdeaIdeaNew video posted on our flourishing Youtube channel!IdeaIdeaIdea

Music: Rotersand - Dare to Live

We received intel of a Cormorant fleet moving around in Providence, and quickly formed and bridged. We sent scouts to the neighbouring systems, used other channels to locate the fleet, and started burning systems to intercept.

We managed to hold reps and kill a lot, despite being outnumbered. In total 58 destroyers and a fair number of their capsules fell to our superior tactics and focus.

Thanks to Ransu Asanari for putting this together!

Oh, and that image at 0:15? We've got shirts with that. Cool

Tonight was a good night to blap~!

First we catch a A4D gang coming our way so we rapidly deploy in nano-cruisers+logi+EWar and take a bunch of their cruisers. Fleet Scythes and Stabbers mostly. once that was done, we decided to stay formed and go on a roam ourselves.

We grab a sweet Stratios kill along the way.

We end up running into a BRAVE fleet full on ceptors and bombers. We dance around a system, seeing who will engage on what terms, while a few of our more vocal members talk trash over local. They end up jumping into us and we calmly start wiping their ships from the field. 22 kills right there. Twisted

Expert FC. Expert tackle. Expert logi. Sweet kills. That's what you get when you fly with PBAU.

New video is up! I'm pretty sure the first fleet was RvB Ganked lead by Mangala Solaris, and the second (Nagafleet) was Proviblock lead by corebloodbrothers.

In other news, we took out a few SOLAR Tengus, tracked down an enemy Avatar for later popping, and in general have been causing havoc with our enemies' POSes. Fun times! JOIN USAttentionAttentionAttention

Having quality FCs around is often the key between a working corp and not, but here at PBAU we've found that quality is often earned through doing than just sitting back and thinking "eventually". A few of our members are getting their FC on in Syndicate, latest kills including an Apocalypse, an Abaddon, an Orca, a Brutix and a Stabber Fleet Issue. PBAU continues to grow, fed by the blood of immortal clones. FOR THE GLORY OF PBAU!Twisted

PBAU runs training events on SiSi from time to time in order to keep everyone's skills sharp and in-line with what we're trying to accomplish. PBAU makes its name by being dedicated and skilled, and training count for a lot. Also, since we have a good stream of solid recruits coming in as of late, it makes sure that even noobs can fly with the big boys and be confident.

We were having just such an event last nght when suddenly a ping went out: Supers tackled! We raced to Daras to join in on the fun.

Four supers, and more than 20 dreads and carriers fell to our might. PBAU shined on that battlefield and even though we're not the flashiest, leadership was eager to sing praise of our ability.

Have what it takes to fly with us? Drop us a line.

Been a while since we've bumped the thread. We've gotten a lot of great new recruits who are flourishing in the PBAU environment, our classes on SiSi are getting a lot of positive attention from legendary figures coalition-wide, and, of course, we've been kicking a lot of immortal ass. Zkillboard has us at over 95% efficiency! Twisted

Now, on to some new videos!

Firstly we have a brawl between us and the Brave Newbies. We live pretty close to one another and both enjoy kicking each others asses. We came out of this engagement looking pretty good.

Second we have us taking on the Provi block in 7MD-S1. Another excellent showing on our part.

Join our public channel "PBAU Recruiting" if you'd like to know more about how to join us on our grand adventures of explosions and lulz!

It was a wonderful week to be in PBAU! First we've rolled out the Tengus and took them into a fight with RvB where they outnumbered us nearly 4 to 1! The result? We held out own and then some with skillful fittings, command and pilots. 59.27% ISK efficiency isn't anything to scoff at where anyone else would find it insane to take the fight at all. 39 of their battlecruisers and 55 of their cruisers blown off the field. According to one insider source, with a handful more Tengus or logi, we would have completely controlled the field, meaning each of our pilots was four times as effective as theirs! Twisted

Here's the video!

But hey, EVE wouldn't be EVE without classy badasses to fight, and it doesn't come much classier than RvB. They were nice enough to give us props over Reddit and it was GFs all around. Big ups to RvB and we hope to fight them again soon! Big smile

Roams, CTAs, SiSi training and more roams! Life is good in PBAU!

Just last night we took out a loot-ladden Legion, and lo did the loot fairy affirmatively proclaim! :D

Today? Got chased by a Fleet Stabber (plus logi) fleet. We just stopped running and wiped them off the field. Why? Our corp is dope and we do dope ****.

Roam through a WH turns into a POS bash turns into killing a scorpion that got trapped in our system when his WH collapsed.

And that was all before coffee!
