The BLU-82 Mining Corporation

From Mine Things
Jump to: navigation, search
The BLU-82 Mining Corporation (also known as the BLU-82 Corporation, The BLU-82s, BLU-82, BLU, or simply The Corp) is one of the oldest and most successful guilds in MineThings. It is also a group that is the target of a great deal of controversy. Many consider the BLU-82 Corporation to be an enemy due to the fact that they have been so successful at organizing a very small group of individuals, who simply set out to play the game together, into an influential group within MineThings.

Background Information

  • Founded August 17th, 2009, with the original members Levethix, Manifest, Bigrig73, and navan.
  • Known more casually as "The Corp" or simply "BLU" or "BLU-82."
  • One of the few guilds in MineThings with significant accomplishments.
  • Perhaps the most selective guild in the game choosing members who have great potential to contribute intelligent ideas and, to a lesser extent, resources. Members are not necessarily recruited on the grounds of how much they have upon joining as the guild practices a strict recruitment policy of quality players over both quantity of players and quantity of resources.
  • Originally founded by Levethix, who has gone inactive
  • Known for some major robberies including but not limited to:
    • 2 BLU-82s (stolen by scatz from deathdoer1)

    Attacks on The BLU-82 Mining Corporation

    • One of the two know coordinated attacks against The BLU-82s was perpetrated by the "Vengeance Guild," a now defunct guild which had been formed to target a specific member, Manifest, but fell apart when Manifest found out about them.
    • The 2nd coordinated "attack" on the BLU-82 Corp. was "The Company", The Company is a group of investors, workers and manufacturers that work to build search planes are helicopters to take ore from the base without bombing it. This reduces the income of the BLU-82s. "The Company" has only managed to inflict a small impact on one ore base run which, reportedly, still turned out to be a net-gain for The Corp. Since then it is suspected that The Corp was tipped off to their existence (by an unknown player) and halted all subsequent ore runs with no rush to continue.
    • Many non-coordinated attempts have occurred, but been foiled.

    The BLU-82 Mining Corporation's Trustworthiness

    "The Corp. can be trusted. I speak as a player and non blu participant. I paid Kai a small 2000g to get 10000g worth of equipment from Harmond to Cissina. It was cheap, reliable, and safe. I would trust kai or any other blu members with this responsibility. But beware, they are not a charity organization, they have been known to backstab, but if you're a simple player, you will have no problem at all."

    It should be noted that however that, for several months (if not the better part of a year), The Corp has made a commitment not to steal items from other players by way of deception (e.g. they won't offer to ship something for you and just take it). However as mentioned above they are not a charity organization and will pillage valuable items if the opportunity arises.
