A lot of people scoffed.
Kelduum has announced, on the EVE University forums (members-only section), a new Ivy League corporation devoted solely to alts and ex-members of the University, for no other reason than to pad the membership totals, to increase the cost to declare war on the University.
Woo! Way to fucking go CCP Greyscale, Carebear Defender. Look at all the logged out targets one gets to go to war with when they pay the inflated fee. You did say after all that the costs were a reflection of the war targets you'd get to fight.
I'll let him speak for himself though, because as a CSM member, looking out for everybody, he speaks writes so eloquently.
Hi all,For seven years, Ivy League has not allowed alt characters of regular members into the alliance. Until now.
With the wardec changes coming up in May, the situation where we do what we can to keep the membership numbers down to avoid attention is counter-productive, so we will be launching the Ivy League Hall of Residence in the next few days.
This is an alt corporation for any current/past E-UNI members, recruitment of which will be semi automated - this will require the Unista to decare their alts characterID via a special hidden forum field, which will then be matched to the applications and then accepted/denied.
As members of Ivy League, alts in that corporation will not be given any roles or titles (at least initially), and therefore will have no corp hangar access or similar, but will still be able to fly in E-UNI fleets.
If you have an alt which wishes to join, then please have them apply now and I will post more details later with the full recruitment process when its been completed.
