Lets talk organization type. Corp? Syndicate? Faith?

From RSI:
  • Corporation – a for-profit business entity. A corporation is a great choice for everything from shipping flo-pets to Goss II to organizing a hostile takeover of Origin Jumpworks.
  • PMC (Private Military Company) – For organizations with a taste for combat. Focuses for PMCs include escorting cargo runs, hunting for pirates or helping the UEE take on the Vanduul.
  • Faith – Organizations that have come together for a single cause or under a single banner. This could be rebels fighting for Terran independence… or the devout followers of the LAMP!
  • Syndicate – Common interest groups for those who operate on the edges (or outside) the law. There’s safety in numbers when you’re moving contraband through Spider or preying on hapless cargo ships.
  • Organization – Want to make your own way without any previous association? Feel free to leave your group’s archetype blank!

It seems the archetype is just a label and does not limit or hinder any kind of activities.

All of the Eve players will immediately gravitate to Corporation, but we may be more in line with PMC's and Syndicates.

We could also simply leave the archetype blank because we are not boxing ourselves into some label.

We have space truckers, we have explorers, we have nebula sniffers. Unlike other groups which are specific in their role, Test does everything and offers everything.

Give me your thoughts.

I offer blood sacrifice to our mighty and terrible god Squardon, that he might lead us to victory through Faith!

Seriously though, it seems like it might be best to just leave it blank. There's no telling what we might end up doing once the PU rolls around, and it seems best to leave it open to avoid any confusion down the road.

I would say Organizations fits us best. We have a large player base and probably will have lots of areas of interest. Based on that I think organization is best.

This. Considering that archtype really doesn't affect gameplay, I would say that we shouldn't be chained down to any one thing.

That and I already love lamp and you can't love lamp too.

Agreed, organization does leave us unrestricted and open to go in any and all direction.

Yeah, Organization seems the best bet. Syndicate could work, but probably has too many pirate associations along with it.

Organization seems to be the majority and I support it :)

I thought Organization when I first saw the list, as well. That said, Faith could be an oddball way to go, if we want to remain oddball.

We do worship the breadth and power of the Aurora Fleet, and I could see us having fun manifestos and propaganda within the Faith theme.

I dont know about everyone else but I plan on trying everything that the game has to offer so I think Organization is the only choice. Otherwise we might be railroading people experience and not letting them fully explore the universe. That said, I'm not sure you can even label a big pile of Aurora wrecks an "organization".

Faith sounds nice, but we would have to pick something that really caters to us all and not just the aurora fleet.
But Organisation is a bit bland...

Organization is a bit bland, I agree, but given the options I think it's definitely our best choice. Any of the other options would only work in ironic or satirical manners, whereas Organization actually applies to us. Maybe we can have sub-groups of the TEST Squadron umbrella that fit each of the other types? Without more details it's hard to say more.

I'm sure eventually, once we get off the ground, different SIGs and Squads will form. Organization is bland but seems to fit us best.

But there's a certain hilarity to being faith based. TEST SQUADRON / WELOVELAMP
Although - i'm not sure how i feel about being opened up to a Warhammer 40K gimmick so early on. =p

I concur. Organization is the best sober choice. Faith is a good drunken choice, or if we're being humorous trolls.
