In their 9 months in the game Brave Newbies Inc. has grown to become the largest corporation in New eden, it has founded the 2nd largest alliance in game (Brave Collective) and has become renowned throughout New Eden as a shining beacon of what Eve should be about; fun.

This is only the first episode of a series that intends to cover all of Brave Newbies Inc.’s history with additions for memorable events they may have in the future.

    seeing some very disturbing parallels between BNI and how the original goons started… EVE 2020 is going to be a very interesting time.

      having been in BNI I can safely say that current leadership is pretty poor. The saving grace is the current CEO Lychton Condor has a pretty good vision for the corp and seems to keep the idiocy in check. But the whole sit in Barleguet and let the fights come to us strategy will result in them continuing to be irrelevant

        I really hope BNI stay irrelevant.
        These days relevant means you have to engage in decidedly no-fun sov grind.

        Fuck that.

        Having fun and having sov is mutually exclusive imho.

    These days they are just as risk averse as any of the big scrub blocs.

    I have seen them run away from 15 man fleets in T3s + logi when they had 50-60 on the grid. Not all that brave if you ask me. EVE Uni is more likely to bring the fight than those guys.

      I don’t know how many times i’ve heard the whole “I brought my t3 down to them and they weren’t so brave after all – huehuehuehue.” Honestly, as much as we want to have an unfair advantage with our numbers we also want to have a fair fight. A blob of 30 t1 ships could not take down a blob of 15 t3s with multiple t2 logi. Logic will not allow this to happen.

      Take your eliteness and educate me further on how we can best obey your superior fleet comps.

        Well, if you are flying more than 50 Thoraxes, you absolutely out-dps a t3+logi fleet of 15. Maybe you lose half of your fleet, maybe even two thirds, but you can definitely win if you don’t go headless chicken.

        I really don’t think that 15 against 50 is an unfair fight favoring the t3+logi side, sorry.

          50 Thoraxes could possibly win when you have the fleet jumping into the system they are in and they are set up. Vexors however would be more likely to do it better and have the range needed to take on ships kiting back, otherwise yes, 15 T3s with logi support would crush a 50 man thorax gang. That’s actually pretty reasonable to assume, considering how crappy guns can be. Perhaps with Rails…. but if you can’t alpha you lose.

            This. If you want to know how to beat a BRAVE fleet (currently) it’s bring something that can out kite and out-alpha a thorax alpha fleet. Mainly if we aren’t able to initiate contact with the other fleet at our optimals it will be a bad fight.
