Agony Unleashed Is Recruiting!

European, North American and Australian timezones

Agony Unleashed is a PVP corp, specialising in small gang combat. Our current deployment is in Caldari Faction Warfare.

Agony was formed in 2006 and is a single-Corp Alliance with a strong cultural identity focused on PVP self-improvement, both for the pilots in Agony as well as thousands of students that have been trained via the PVP University that Agony runs as a side project.

Agony has lived in almost every NPC Nullsec region from Venal to Great Wildlands, has briefly dabbled at Sov-holding in Providence (while it was a Fight Club back in 2010) and tried a bit of Faction Warfare.

We are currently living in Hykanima, Black Rise as part of the Caldari Militia. This provides us with easy access to instant action through Faction Warfare as well as Nullsec in the form of Pure Blind and the galactic north-west just a few hops away. As usual, we're running frequent small gang roams through the neighborhood. There are no mandatory ops to attend but there's almost always something going on!

The Agony Philosophy

- PvP is fun, enjoy it and don't be a jerk.
- PvP is a challenge, pay attention and fly smart.
- Honour your word - you stand to gain more by keeping it than you do by breaking it.
- There are no enemies, only opponents.
- If you're going to do something, do it well.
- Knowledge should be shared, not hoarded - smarter opponents will force you to up your game.
- SP and Isk don't make you a better PVPer, they make you a better target.
- Winning through superior tactics is more satisfying than winning through superior numbers.

What does Agony offer?

Agony offers a strong social environment for like-minded pilots that like to pew spaceships. From solo, duo and decentralized fleets in cheap frigates and cruiser to 20+ person fleets with more advanced doctrines from HACs to Attack BCs or multi-timezone capital supported BS gangs.

Agony also offers active forums where fleet ideas, ship fittings and tactics are discussed and an extensive Wiki providing a repository of knowledge about many of Eve's game mechanics.

We also have logistical services for our members to keep those hangars full of ships and modules. This is especially useful since Agony loves change and gets itchy feet when being in the same spot for too long. As such we move around fairly frequently to go and see new places and meet new people to shoot in the face.

Agony regularly competes in the Alliance Tournament with varying success.

What is Agony looking for?

Agony looks for pilots that aim to excel in PVP and constantly improve their skills. We try to accept people that will fit into our corp culture but we have no real SP requirement, instead focusing on attitude, desire to PVP and willingness to improve. Agony pilots should be PVP focused, pro-active and willing to try new things.

Agony has a Trial period so that both parties can test out the waters and determine if the corp is a good fit for the individual. In this period we ensure that the Trial fits in with the corp socially and has, or is developing, passable PVP skills. We aren't looking for elite PVPers but some basic skill should be developed during the Trial by even the greenest of recruits. Conversely, the Trial period is for the individual to see whether Agony’s playstyle and culture are right for them.

In terms of activity levels, we are not a hardcore gaming corp and understand that Real Life is more important than EVE. That said, we do expect pilots to play with us regularly, particularly during the Trial so we can get to know them!

We had some neighbors in the past who didn't like to engage in PVP as much as us. One of our great FCs came up with the idea of a mining fleet, in hopes of coaxing them out.

We entered their system started mining their ice, and well you can see the result https://zkillboard.com/related/30004502/201408280200/

Just a blast being part of Agony.

Your fear of null sec may be valid

There are tons of spaceships exploding, and pod pilots dying like crazy.
But you should know, that more of our fleets arrive alive at the end of roams, than others (well sometimes :))

So if you have to fly null, fly

AGONY

Some of our Pilots arrive alive.

Pew alone doesn't make a corp a home, but also it's values and intangibles. I'd like to share one of Agony's; Koldz.

Koldz is a Warrior Poet, and Eve Haiku Master.
