Rock Paper Shotgun Holdings is an Eve Online Corp (similar to a guild in other MMO’s) that is based out of this community. We were formed from a core group of guys from StateCorp in which one of the writers of RPS was the CEO. You can read about StateCorps history in the following article as well as about Eve in general:<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>

Eve is not like other MMO’s. It’s a big open sand box and there are a lot of ways to play the game. RPS Holdings is a PvP focused corp. We do other things such as worm hole exploration, missions, and incursions to make ISK (in game money) but that is all spent on replacing ships to be blown up. Too many new players to the game shy away from PvP thinking they don’t have the skills to hang with the older players and get bored with monotonous PvE only to leave the game. This is not the case. After a few days of going through tutorials and getting the basics of the game down you can serve a vital role in PvP. RPS Holdings specializes in getting newbies into the game and PvPing right away. We’ll get you blowing up ships, and getting yourself blown up in no time. <o></o>

Your first role in combat will be that of a tackling frigate. Small cheap ships that “tackle” an enemies larger ships so they don’t escape letting the older guys pound on him with the big guns. In fact we missed out on a few kills the other night because we didn’t have any specialized tacklers and the enemies simply warped away from us. We need you new guys.<o></o>

Currently you can sign up for a free 14 day trial on Eve’s website, or you can get a free 21 day trial if you get an invite from a current player. If you subscribe from the 21 day trial the inviter gets a nice sum of ISK that is generally split between both players. So ask for an invite here if you’re interested! <o></o>
