At the beginning of 2006, Agony was founded by a small group of players who wanted to teach new players the basics of pvp. Since that time Agony has gone from a 10 character corporation that only flew frigates to a 250 character corporation that has participated in four alliance tournaments, fought in countless conflicts all over the EVE universe, held space, built an outpost, taught thousands and thousands of players about PvP, and countless other accomplishments. You can learn more about the history of Agony in our Agony Empire History article.

- PvP is a challenge, pay attention and fly smart.
- Honour your word - you stand to gain more by keeping it than you do by breaking it.
- There are no enemies, only opponents.
- If you're going to do something, do it well.
- Knowledge should be shared, not hoarded - smarter opponents will force you to up your game.
- SP and isk don't make you a better PVPer, they make you a better target.

- Blues are boring, strive to maintain a target rich environment.
Agony Unleashed: Frequently Asked Questions
Where is Agony's HQ?
Agony currently bases out of Hemin in Curse.
Who is the CEO of Agony?
What does Agony do?
We PvP, plain and simple. We operate nearly exclusively in 0.0, avoid blues, shoot anything that moves, and generally try to be pretty damn good at what we do. We expect our members to always be improving, and we favor tactics and intelligence over numbers and brute force.
How can my corp apply to join the Agony Empire alliance?
Agony is a one corp alliance. If you're interested in merging into Agony then please contact Bamar.
What is Agony's position on blues?
We don't maintain permanent blues. From time to time we'll consider setting positive standings to a small number of people in order to accomplish a particular objective, but we don't set defensive blues.
If you guys live in 0.0 and don't have a ton of blues how do you ever make isk?
Agony pilots are by and large independent and responsible for making isk on their own. Some have trade alts, mission alts, or POS network and industry alts in empire. Others go ratting or missioning in 0.0.
Is AGONY like EVE University? Do I join in order to take classes?
While Agony and EVE-Uni both teach new players, there are a few fundamental differences. First and foremost Agony as a corporation is distinct from our PvP-University. Agony Unleashed operates as a 0.0 PvP corporation day to day, and only runs classes now and then as a service to the EVE community. Students do not join Agony in order to take classes, and not everyone in Agony runs classes. In addition Agony does not focus solely on teaching new students, but on teaching and learning PvP in general. We develop and teach advanced tactics as well as basic ones. While EVE University provides a broad introduction to the game, Agony seeks to provide a deep understanding of just PvP.
Isn't Agony just a new player PVP training corporation?
No, Agony is a small gang 0.0 PvP corporation. We offer PvP-University and our classes as a service to the EVE community to promote the game that we love. EVE PvP is a unique game experience, but it can be formidable as an outsider. We seek to help ease this transition and to prepare new players to fight back.
Are you pirates?
No. As per our rules of engagement, we only shoot those in low sec who have demonstrated that they are willing to pvp in low sec. We operate in 0.0 and consider low sec an uninteresting distraction. In 0.0 on the other hand, we will shoot at anyone who is not in Agony (or in an Agony gang), or one of our allies. If you're in 0.0, you choose to be there and accept that you will be shot at.
Do you accept contracts from other corporations/alliances? Are you mercenaries for hire?
We have accepted merc. contracts in the past, but it's a rare occurrence. If you're interested then contact Bamar.
Do you hold space or intend to?
Agony does not artificially limit what we do. That being said we dislike sovereignty as it currently exists in EVE and do not hold space, nor do we plan to in the near future.
Can anyone join Agony or is it by invite? By skillpoints?
To apply, refer here Joining Agony Empire, check to see if your time zone is recruiting, then fill out new applicant questionnaire and submit it through our forum. Random in-game applications will be automatically rejected.
