About Alea Iacta Est Universal
Motto: “What can go wrong.” As a statement, not a question.
Alea Iacta Est Universal [AIEU] was founded on 16 July 2010. We were initially based in Scheenins in the Verge Vendor region of Gallente space, and we briefly held a system in Cloud Ring and cut our nullsec teeth with TEST Alliance Please Ignore [TEST]. Over the next several years we merrily wandered all over New Eden, usually blundering into chaos in the process. On 17 December 2013, we joined Brave Collective [BRAVE], some of whom had initially confused us with the good folks over at EX-F, who joined the same week (however: our name isn’t French, it’s Latin).
Prior to EVE Online, Alea Iacta Est was founded in World of Warcraft in February 2007 by the creators and fans of several popular podcasts such as The Instance and Buzz Out Loud. The guild presently has over 9000 members and 11-co guilds on Earthen Ring-US, and in subsequent years spread out to most other major MMOs and now forms the Alea Iacta Est Gaming Community. We maintain a close relationship with the Frogpants Network and our official forums can be found on the MyExtraLife website here.
As AIE was formed from several podcasting communities and fans, it comes as little surprise that members of AIEU started podcasting about their experiences in EVE, and AIEU is now also the community corporation for the Cap Stable podcast, for better and worse.
AIEU exists primarily as a PVP corporation causing mayhem and destruction of the variety that usually involves us losing our ships more often than our enemies. However, we do have a growing industrial wing, and free frigate cache for all members. Chiefly, however, our purpose is not defined by what we do in the game, but in who we are and how we do it. In the words of our benevolent overlord Stigg:
“The mission of Alea Iacta Est Universal is to provide a balanced set of combat and industrial opportunities within New Eden for the members of the Alea Iacta Est and ExtraLife communities. Toward this end we will foster an environment of mutual respect, courtesy, and an understanding that a lack of experience does not imply a lack of aptitude.”
Since joining BRAVE, the current directorate has finally subverted the last vestiges of keeping standards. Admission into AIEU is open to any player over 18 years of age, and is a good fit for players whose play schedules take a back seat to family or work priorities. Skillpoint requirements and killboard statistics are not needed or wanted here, merely a willingness to have fun.
The first step is to register on UMAMI (AIE’s multi-game application system) and fill out our questionnaire. Detailed instructions can be found on the Alea Iacta Est Wiki here, and the entry will answer additional questions new recruits may have about the corporation.
Any information supplied to Alea Iacta Est Universal by applicants and members is considered privileged information and may only be used for purposes directly related to administration of the EVE Online corporation or the larger parent community, Alea Iacta Est. The information may only be shared with non-officers if the applicant or member has given explicit permission or where it is required by applicable laws.
How does Cap Stable play into all of this?
Fans of Cap Stable are absolutely welcome and encouraged to apply for membership to the corporation. If you’re looking for a place that’s relaxed, fun, and a little zany, look no further than AIEU. As the podcast tries to focus on explaining EVE to new players, so do we love new players joining our corporation. There are no skill point requirements and there are no mandatory ops. We are a community, and our only requirements are that you note you’re a fan of the podcast in your UMAMI application. That’s it.
What Now? I have so many questions.
Again, we’d like to direct you to the AIEU New Recruit FAQ and the MyExtraLife EVE Online forums. Engage us and ask us any questions you have, and we’d be more than willing to help out in any way possible. Finally, you can reach the officer corp of AIEU at firstname.lastname@example.org.
