Diplomacy

Updated as of October 2020:

The Sixth Empire Alliance maintains its own diplomacy with the major military alliances of New Eden.  The purpose of the Sixth Empire is to support the players of EVE Online through active game play of different play-styles, and to support the efforts of suicide prevention by encouraging people to utilize the resources of Broadcast 4 Reps (#B4R).

PLEASE NOTE: The Sixth Empire Alliance separates the 'real-world' from 'in-game' behavior.  One of trademark sayings is...

"Stay alive, so we can kill you in-game"

That phrase sums it up. We want you to stay alive in the real-world, hell we'll even have a beer with you if you are an in-game enemy or 'red'. In fact, some of our best moments is sharing war stories from EVE Online with our enemies in-game, because we are not enemies in the real-world.  That is what makes us a unique community.

So enough of that... let's talk in-game diplomacy.

The Sixth Empire is NOT a "land grab alliance" and as a Coast Guard we are out to help all players. We provide a home from those lost in space, or those that rage quit from corporations or alliances in order to give them a cool down time before they quit EVE Online.

The goal is to keep real-world players engaged, and to allow the major alliances to draw from our ranks of members, or give their disenchanted members a temporary home.

Diplomacy within the Sixth Empire Alliance
As per our code of conduct... only the Sixth Empire Alliance diplomatic corps can negotiate and accept terms of diplomacy for ALL corporations within our alliance.  There is a no self-diplo rule which means corporations shall not engage in diplomacy for the sake of the alliance without coordination with the 6E diplos. Violations of this code of conduct may lead to the entire corporation being exercised from the Sixth Empire.

But but but... you are supposed to be good guys
That's cute. Not true in-game. Again, "Stay alive, so we can kill you in-game."  We have wardec'd other alliances and corps in-game for various reasons. Sometimes for a purpose, sometimes just to be dicks because we were bored (although that does not happen often, we reserve the option to create content for our membership).  If it's in-game trouble, remember, that EVE Online is a game where we get away from our real life issues to relax and have fun, and having fun may mean we shoot you in the face in-game.  

Diplomacy with other alliances
The Sixth Empire Alliance is an independent organization. We are not pets, we are not renters, of any of the major alliances. We are by our nature a neutral entity and considered blue +5 standings to many major alliances that are red to each other.

Our Friends in-game...
The Sixth Empire is supported by many major alliances that for whatever reason like us, and we are grateful.  However, people make the mistake that if you are friends with the Sixth Empire, you will will be friends with ALL other alliances that blue us.  THIS IS NOT TRUE.  So many alliances blue us, that they are red to each other.  Thus, when we are in public fleet roams, we do not shoot blues. Thus, we will not do diplomacy for you!  Your organization is on its own to negotiate your own standings with our friends.  If our blue friend shoots you... oh well, not our problem. 

Grateful for our gifts...
The Sixth Empire Alliance is very thankful for all the diplomatic generosity that the major alliances have gifted our tiny alliance. These gifts are given for multiple reasons, but regardless of the reason, our base mission is enhanced by these gifts.  In the past, great tributes have been given to the Sixth Empire.

A History of Good Diplomacy

The Imperium/Goonswarm...
The Sixth Empire Alliance has NEVER been a member of The Imperium, or Goonswarm.
However, the Imperium has been good to the Sixth Empire.  For three years the Imperium gave us a null sec home in M-SRKS within Delve (no-cost no-rent just a cool place to hang our Pope Hat Flag).
In June 2020, our occupation ended and the Sixth Empire has vacated Delve.

Mercenary Coalition...
The Sixth Empire was gifted, at no cost, an entire Keepstar Citadel from the Mercenary Coalition. This was done for many reasons included in this press release. It should be noted that Seleene and Max Singularity have also lifted a drink at EVE Vegas.


Summary...
The purpose of the Sixth Empire is to support the players of EVE Online through active game play of different play-styles, and to support the efforts of suicide prevention by encouraging people to utilize the resources of Broadcast 4 Reps (#B4R).  The Sixth Empire is NOT a "land grab alliance" and as a Coast Guard we are out to help all players. We provide a home from those lost in space, or those that rage quit from corporations or alliances in order to give them a cool down time before they quit EVE Online.

Our diplomats seek relations with the major alliance to meet these goals. The Sixth Empire will always be small and inconsequential to the major power plays in New Eden. The Pope only seeks salvation for the weary.  We appreciate immensely the wonderful gifts given to our tiny alliance, and will maintain our freeport status to all alliances.   

Thank you.
Max Singularity & Feiryred
