we're freaking HUGE!!! :D
Yeah, not too shabby lol. I bet we could get up much higher with a lil more recruitment.
"Quality over Quantity"
Sorry to say this, but numbers mean nothing if only a fraction of members play regularly. Don't get me wrong 27th largest corp in Dust 514 is awesome. If we were to take part in a pc then conquer a planetary district and later get attacked I don't think we would have the means to defend our territory. Sure some of the members we've recruited over time might be on, but we don't know enough about these members; they could have low level gear for all we know, some may not have mics. I hate to be a kill joy, but this is something that's been on my mind.
however, much like the site here, the Corp should be filled with equally awesome people. having skilled members is also a good thing, but CCP aren't done with Dust yet.
they plan on having PvE introduced at some point in the future. so what we as a corp could do is have the best of the best out fighting on the front lines (Planetary Conquest), and those more casual fighting PvE (for whatever it is the mode is created for in the first place :D)
its a very favourable corporation structure! having seen what other devs are doing for PS4, im interested to see what CCP bring to the table.
a few of those who've signed up are part of the forums (i think many of the regulars signed up) but they were pretty much unanimous in their conclusion that CCP need to work on their gameplay.
CCP are playing the long game. we must too :D
I want achievements!!!! Is it too much to ask for?!
well done sir's, may we continue to grow and make this the place to game
At the end of the day, you are right, quality over quantity. However, it is just the norm to have 10-20% of a guild/clan/corp active. PC is 16vs16 because CCP looked at the size of the average corp and its active members and that's what they came up with...so most corps are in the same boat in this regard, so we are on equal footing with most others. We have more recruits though...and as DUST improves they will probably come back, at which point they log in automatically to PSUGS and see a group of fun, friendly and experienced gamers to play with. It's a win in this regard...and we are 27! Without even trying. I could get us in the top 10 if I did front page recruiting. :)
