The SLYCE Alliance Ethos

Below is a list of what the SLYCE Alliance is/is not:

  • We know that RL is more important than Eve Online
  • We retain corps with a positive attitude to match our own
  • We are not pirates, griefers, gankers or scammers.
  • We use a NRDS in high sec.
  • We use a NPSI - Not Purple Shoot It and NBSI - Not Blue Shoot It policy in low, null, and wormholes.
  • We have very little mandatory anything (with exception to low/null operations, deployments, and CTAs); just enjoy the game

Alliance Duties

  • Joint operations of mining, missions, low, WH or null sec roams are encouraged but not mandatory. Living in null sec sov space will require active standing fleet and services (ts3/slack) participation.

  • Being active and entertaining, offering shared content and activities between corps

Member CEO Duties

  • The CEO should make his corporation members aware of Alliance protocols (especially during wars)
  • The CEO should actively promote activity across corporations within the Alliance

Wartime Protocols

During high sec war-times, the Alliance and it's Diplomats are responsible for all communication to it's member corps and of the SLYCE Wartime Protocol. CEOs will be expected to abide by, encourage and enforce the protocols. The protocols are designed to -

  1. Deny the enemy kills of helpless non-combat ships.
  2. Deny the enemy kills of poorly-fitted ships.
  3. Deny the enemy kills of high-value ships.
  4. Deny the enemy any opportunity to milk tears.

Generally speaking, the protocols -

  1. Encourage members who don't care for PVP and those without alts do any of the following until the war is over -
    1. Join SLYCE's 0% tax shell corporation
    2. Head down into SLYCE's WH's
    3. Take part in some low-sec and null operations
    4. Operate in our Sovereignty space
    5. Train a L5 skill and go outside with their family and friends
  2. Encourage those with alt accounts to use them instead of their main account
  3. Restrict engagement of the enemy (excluding formal Alliance war operations)
  4. Prevent members and CEOs from communicating with war targets

Leaving SLYCE

  • Member Corps and under directive of their CEO are free to leave the SLYCE Alliance at any time, it happens and there is no animosity if it does
  • The SLYCE Alliance may also remove corporations at any time (e.g., lack of enforcement for wartime protocols, non activity, conflict of ethos etc)
  • CEO's and senior members will be removed from mailing lists and passwords changed
