Eye of God
Eye of God (EOG) is an old
corporation in Eve, having been formed a few months after Eve
went retail. The original members of EOG previously played
together in the space-based MMOG Mankind. The name "Eye of
God" comes from a Mankind near ghost ship, very fast and very
powerfull. Reserved for internal use only by the developers
The first 0.0 region occupied by EOG
was Curse. EOG went from there to Outer Ring on the opposite
side of the universe. EOG was the founding member of the
NORAD (New Outer Ring Alliance Democracy) alliance, when the
formal alliance feature was added to Eve.
After a short withdrawl to empire,
EOG then joined Xetic Alliance towards the end of it’s life.
Several corps split from Xetic to form Ascendant Frontier
(ASCN) alliance which laid claim to the Impass and Fethabolis
regions. EOG was a member of ASCN, and resided in the Impass
Dirty Deeds Corp (DDC) had a friendly
split from ASCN and formed the Axiom Empire alliance (AXE).
EOG joined AXE and stayed in Impass.
DDC and EOG built up the Impass
region, with DDC being more the military power of the
alliance, and EOG more the economic power. EOG deployed three
outposts in Impass. The first was a Minmatar refinery, the
second was an Amarr factory, and the third was a Caldari
research outpost. We had these three outposts in the same
constellation as we were preparing for the rumored new
feature of constellation sovereignly.
At the time of the BOB war against
ASCN, AXE was attacked by Against All Authorities (.-A-.).
This was prior to defensive mechanisms now in Eve
such as cyno jammers and jump bridges. Both wars were
eventually lost at about the same time.
When EOG left AXE and withdrew
to empire to regroup, we lost most of our PvP players.
(Most of these ex-members ended up in the PURE alliance.)
EOG took the
opportunity to purchase an outpost in the drone regions at
B-7LYC. We formed the new X-PACT alliance and admitted most
of the corporations resident in that area. However, without
our previous PvP base, we knew that we could not defend this
outpost if seriously attacked, so we asked around to see who
would want to buy it. We took the offer from OXIDE alliance
who was nearby and using the station anyway as they had none
of their own.
Most EOG again withdrew to empire,
but several of our PvP’ers stayed at B-7LYC. It was at this
point that AWECO (whom we knew from ASCN) first contacted EOG
about joining with Intrepid Crossing alliance (IRC). Because
our remaining PvP’ers were still enjoying B-7, EOG disbanded
X-PACT and joined OXIDE. We stayed with OXIDE to help defend
against attacks by SMASH and Roadkill until OXIDE was
eventually overrun. The B-7 outpost was taken over by Atlas
Alliance, who were friends of SMASH and Roadkill. EOG then
left OXIDE to join IRC.
After over a
year of good times in the drone regions with Intrepid
Crossing, the BOB/GoonSwarm war in the south ended. GoonSwarm
then joined with their friends Red Alliance and xXDEATHXx
alliance and attacked the territory of IRC and their friends
Etherial Dawn (ED) alliance. IRC and ED held out months
longer than everyone had expected, but eventually were
defeated and pushed out of their home.
Many of the
corporations then left IRC, as did EOG. EOG spent about a
month in empire exploring its options to return to 0.0.
We decided to join the Wildly Inappropriate (WI.)
alliance which inhabited most of the Geminate
With the release of the Dominion expansion, changes in
tech 2 manufacturing made moon minerals only found in
the north (and in Geminate) much more valuable. This
encouraged alliances poor in these minerals to invade Geminate.
After a long defense by the Northern Coalition,
Atlas Alliance, Red Alliance, and Solar Fleet managed to
evict WI from Geminate.
EOG then moved south, and was a member of Systematic-Chaos
alliance in the Esoteria region of 0.0 until attacks
by Stain Empire and Coven forced leadership changes and a
reformation of Systematic-Chaos that shed most of its
membership, including EOG. EOG then became a member of the
Black Star Alliance inhabiting the Fountain region.
At EOG we have
trimmed our membership number so that we do not appear to be
bigger than we are. We are not actively recruiting, but we
continually attract previous members who have looked around
Eve and concluded that there is nothing better than EOG. We
do have some casual players in EOG, but for the most part we
are a group of high skill point members who have been
together for a long time and have done most everything that
Eve has to offer.
