Awhile back, I decided to take a more scientific approach to sorting out the often confusing Corporation Recruiting forum of Eve Online by compiling a list of pirate corporations actively recruiting (aka bumping their post at least once in the last couple days), their stats and their flying tendencies. To do this, I used the recruitment posts themselves, Battleclinic data, and what little I know of the reputations of other pirates. Today, I continue that with a new, updated post. So, here is the October, 2011 edition of ‘So You Wanna Join a Pirate Corp, do ya?’. Please note that this is only current as of October 16th, 2011. As a side note, corporations are listed in Alphabetical order.

I’ve tried to keep the listings as factual as possible. If you have more information to contribute, please let me know in the comments or via eve mail. If I missed your corp and you would like it added to the list, or if you shudder at the thought of being called a “nathty piwate”, let me know as well.
