So I really want to get into EVE, but I hear all the stories about Corps scamming new players, griefing them, etc. What is a good way to go about finding a Corp if I don't already know people who play? What things should I look out for?

Currently playing: Marvel Heroes, DayZ

Waiting for: Repopulation, H1Z1

Corp standing and how many players it has and how long the corp has been running.

If it sounds too good to be true, best to be wary. Danger signs include hefty fees to join, offers to move all of your "stuff" out to their home base, corps/alliances with bad reputations (i.e. Any dealing with Goons or Test) and any who promise fabulous rewards (free expensive T2/Capital ships for all). Best bet is to avoid the in game looking for corp channel, far too much scamming, stick with the recruiting channel in the official EVE forums as a good starting point.

Arrogant, Condescending, Dismissive, Elitist, "Meany", you speak as if these are bad things?

It's hard to tell you what to look for since you didn't say what type of corp you want to join.

I can tell you what you should avoid:

Do not, under any circumstances, pay to join a corp.

Do not give them any assets to move for you.  Most corps just mean well and want to help but it's not worth the risk.

Until you actually are a member of the corp, when you see them in space, assume they're hostile.

Even after you join, on your first few times out with them, do not fly anything expensive.

 It is also a good idea to join their public channel and see what other members in that group are like, you want to make sure its a group of ppl you get along with and have simular goals.

 Think about what you want and go from there, make sure they do what your interested in and also look under their corp info for members numbers, 20 members most times means about 5 active members...you want to make sure they will be on when you are so also find out their Time zones and when most of them are online doing things.

 The most important thing to in eve to remember is trust no one, everything is a scam. If it does not hurt you in anyway then why not, if there is a chance you will loose something, walk away or scam them first.

well I am still limping through the tutorial though I feel like Exploring/Hacking will be a favorite passtime of mine. So I'd probably want a Corp that can help with that.

Thats really more of a sidebar activity, can only do so much, but if you're serious look for a corp/alliance with a solid 0.0 presence as that's where the good Isk can be made hacking/exploring

The only luck I had today was to have you as my opponent.

note that above poster refers to 'hacking' in the sense of finding a radar dish and using a hacking module on it - not the illegal kind.

 

also note: what some consider side activity, others sometimes do full-time.

 

I've been mining like crazy since 2009. building a dreadnaught now - which I will sell on the market once its finished.

No corp should require you to pay to join. Also check their tax rate, which should be around 10%-20%, closer to 20 if they're claiming to be building caps.

adding onto this:

 

the safest bet is to aim for a "training corp". there are empire training corps, and then there are puppet corps of big alliances that serve the purpose of giving basic general and pvp training so -if you choose to- you can move into 0.0 easily and be able to function up here.

 

these corps are very entry-level...and assume you know nothing and carry out raining events like teaching you how to use the UI to get the ship to do what you want, controls and things like that, basic pvp commands you'll hear in fleets etc.

 

everyone wants new players. there's no "raid size" in eve. one more pilot is always a good thing.

 

it is in the nature of very difficult games that the community will help new players. NOT EVERYONE, they are afterall easy pray - but they also have nothing of value. BECAUSE THE GAME IS SO HARD and they cant get anything of value that quickly.

 

this is a critical cocept for sanboxes that eve gets. if gaining posessions of worth is hard, new players won't be victimized as much because they don't own anything very valuable. This limits griefing, reducing the 'grief for profit" to only "griefing for fun". the crowd that griefs for fun is tiny.

 

they exist, hulkageddon is an example. but OP it's unlikely you'll land into a griefing corp even if you pick entirely at random. those corps simply are rare and short lived. In EVE, reputation goes a very long way. It's all one server afterall.

 

just be careful with trading in jita. market is ok but contracts and direct trade are very scam-filled. like VERY!!!. when you trade via contracts or direct trade be very sure you know exactly what you're paying and what you're reciving. dont rush, dont assume. Double-check everything. if it looks suspicious in the slightest, pass. Trade scamming IS allowed, and its being done very heavily. But you can avoid falling for it. it's all in front of you, don't hit accept' until you verified.

-decide what you want in the game, direction etc.

-then choose a newb friendly corp that suits your plans.

-only then look at their 'demands' and decide if you are willing to fulfill those, some corps are lenient, some corps are very strict & require you to login + suit their needs 99% of the time....it's up to you if you do that or not.

-if you find a corp that suits your playstayle, join that corp, socialize, but always be aware that some of those players might be thieves or spies for the enemy, even longtime members.

Be wary with loaning out your stuff, like in the real world would you trust a person you know for 5d with your last $100 or not?

Always read contracts before accepting, if a deal looks too good, it probably is.

 

**plus oldest scamming trick in the book: if a corp wants you to PAY them in order to join: it's a scam.
