Greetings fellow corps members, and let me start off by saying thank you to each and every one of you that have contributed in making being a member of Aideron these last few weeks one of the most memorably cool things I have ever gotten to take part in, and I am only more excited about what we have to come.
And by contributed I mean the over 50 people who have joined since our release of alpha clones, and our returning players contributing in making this month already the most active and bloodiest months we have had in nearly a year (Aivonen notwithstanding). A special thanks to the amazing logistics team who tirelessly brought forth hundreds of ships for our newbros to fight with confidence in, and an even more amazing thanks to the newer guys who have since stepped up and grown to be leaders among the new alphas.
All of this has been accomplished with our military commander out of the helm, but soon he will return and we will be ready for war!
For now, our focus must be on readying ourselves for that time. Recruitment continues to go strong, but that means more and more people will be needed to help point people in the right direction. We now have enough membership to have consistent presence outside of our usual 0000-0400 time range, and that means new commanders will be stepping up to lead in those time zones.
But furthermore, our general membership will need the confidence to take charge when no one else has. You do not need to form up to be organized, but if you are thinking there is “nothing to do” check to see if you can drum up interest in Discord. We are actively encouraging these things, and expect to see people jump to the chance to help you, and provide you the means to try out what you want. This is a learning corp, but we do not provide the direction, only the capability. You must express your interest, and allow others within the corp to build with you as we unlock even more aspects to this game. The corp will support these efforts, as a breadth of experience, and highly engaged players, benefits us all.
Our efforts for now are going to remain the same: oplex/deplex in the Heverice/Okkamon area. Use this as an opportunity to continue to educate and learn. Do not get burned out, if you want to roam or do other activities feel free to. Right now Muetralle is the third most contested Squid system, but with our slip back to T2 it is less valuable to be running complexes. Exploration, mission running, and other activities can help with ISK, and new players should feel free to express a need to get ISK; understanding that most experienced players will opt to “teach a man to fish”.
Industry continues to be built up. I am very proud of Andre’s efforts so far, and I see many people looking to get involved for the good of the corporation, as well as their pocketbook. Keep up the great work.
In part thanks to our efforts and resources, our ally ACTEE has managed to put up one of the first Azbel class Engineering Complexes in New Eden. We have full access to it, and recommended using its services until we can get our own up and running in Fliet.
I would once again like to welcome all of the new players who have joined us, and all of the veterans from across new eden who have come to see what all the fuss is about. I look forward to our bright and prosperous future.
Ashterothi, Aideron Robotics CEO, Commanding
