Corps[edit | edit source]
Shorthand for “corporation,” corps are a way for players to organize and communicate away from the public eye. They can use a private chat channel (/g from the chat window), and may also sponsor more involved forms of interaction (out-of-game chat, corporation-dedicated web pages, and so on).
To see a list of corps on your server, select the Corp tab from the top navigation bar. Compete with other corporations for a spot among the top 50, and track your standings on the corporate leaderboard.
You’ll be able to see where the corp’s members are located, how many players belong to it, and also whether or not they are hiring new employees.
If you've found a corp you want to join (most likely because one of your buddies belongs to it), highlight the corp’s name and click [Join].
Type a brief intro for yourself into the text window, and click [OK]. If you’re hired, the CEO will send you an invitation to join, and your business card will update with the corp’s name.
You'll now have access to the corp’s employee list and employee interface. If for any reason you want to leave the corp, click [Quit the Corp] at the bottom of the interface.
Forming Your Own Corp[edit | edit source]
Once you’ve been playing for a while, you may want to form your own corp. The process is fairly simple, but there are a few requirements:
You must be level 5 or above. You must have at least 50,000 gold. You cannot already be in a corp. If you meet the above requirements, select the Store tab from the navigation bar, select the Gold tab, and purchase the Articles of Incorporation.
Next, go to your locker, and use the item as shown.
Enter a name for your corp, select a logo to represent you, indicate the zone you live in (so other players have an idea of who they’re playing with and when you might be online), and type up a brief mission statement for your group.
Once you're set up, other players on the server will be able to see your corp and submit applications for membership. You can also directly invite players if you’d like (by right clicking their name in chat and click "Corp Invitation"), but it’s always a good idea to ask first.
It's always good to plan who you want in your corp, such as time zone, language they speak, because you only get 35 spots, to expand by 5 you would need to pay EMP (currency that involves real money)
