A main source of income for most of our corpmates is ratting, since we can’t sell a lot of stuff on the market, people rat to get nice bounty ticks as well as for the occasional tag which as a corporation we have decided is okay to sell. The Clone Soldier Negotiator tags are the real biggies, at 25 million ISK a piece those bad boys are coveted by all of our ratters. Another thing that the ratters get is Meta level loot. As we can only build Meta 0 loot, a lot of ratters like to use the Meta 3-4 modules to pimp their fits. They melt the rest of the modules down for minerals. Instead of mining, the protect our miners. In this particular instance we had a corpmate who couldn’t break the tank of a BS class rat, so we warped in to help him out. The amount of drones on the field was insane, because you can reach higher max dps with drones than with t1 guns many of our members use drones as their main damage source. In the end we had a fun time, didn’t lose any ships and continue to make progress!
Before you all get your knickers in a twist because we have a stratios on field. We clearly stated that you could buy BPC’s off the market, that includes faction and pirate ships. I myself have a Navy Issue Vexor, and an Astero for Exploration. Building faction ships is far easier than building t2 ships.
