As part of the overall restructure of EVE University we are changing our policy on blue request.
Traditionally, any group can request a Non-Aggression Pact (NAP) and be set to +5 standings to Ivy League as long as there are no previous incidents that would prevent a good relationship with Ivy.
Going forward, while any group can request a NAP and be set to +5 standings to Ivy League, we will only accept if it is mutually beneficial to both parties.
How can I get Blue Standings?
If you are a current member of EVE University, and looking to gain blue standings on your alt corp, there are 3 ways you can achieve this:
- For corporations without structures, their corporation can be added to the Ivy League alt alliance
- For corporations with structures, requesting your alt corp be set to +5
- For individual alts, you can add your alternate character to the EVE University Hall of Residence
Why did Eve Uni change the NAP policy? There are currently over 1,800 standings set to Eve Uni. This has become problematic on a couple of levels. We continue to hit our top limit of the number of standings an alliance can hold and it also makes keeping track of standings very difficult when you have this many.
Why are we doing an alt alliance? It enables us to do ONE blue standing for most Uni alt corps and characters. It will simplify the process for our diplomacy team. It will also make it much easier for staff and students to be able to actually keep track of actual blues vs uni alts.
What do I do if I am already blue to Eve Uni? We will be resetting ALL standings in the next few months. Please see this post to see how to apply for the Alt alliance.
What if my alt owns structures? If you own structures that will not allow you to apply, there must be a mutually beneficial reason for your alt corp to reapply for blue (does your corp have structures or services used by the general Uni population, does your alt corp provide benefits to one of the campuses, Is your alt needed by one of the departments in Eve Uni?).
Will this cost anything to me? If you join the Uni alt corp with a character, it will have a 0% tax rate. It will cost you nothing. If you join with a corp, there is a 2 mill a month corp fee charged by CCP to the alliance. You will pay 24 mill isk to the alliance (which is the corp fee for a year).
What if my alt corp leaves before the year is over? We will send the unused portion of your corp fee back to you.
What if my corp has structures but only myself or a few people use it? The method most people will use for this, is to pull the one or two characters from your corp that you need to have blue to the Uni and place them in the alt alliance. You can then use those characters to pass things back and forth to your corporation.
How do I apply for the alt alliance or re-apply for blue standings? You can go to this forum post and follow the directions or you can also find these links in the "Diplomacy (EVE Uni)" chat channel in game.
Will the alt corp or alt alliance be at war? The alt corp and alt alliance will not be war dec eligible, as neither will have any structures. No corps in the alt alliance is allowed to deploy structures for this reason.
