But stats do get collected. And boards fill up with tallies of past fights, regardless of how or why we play - there is nothing inherently wrong with taking some measure of pride in those accomplishments. It is possible to have it both ways, to not really care and also take pride in something.
This all stemmed from the accusation that certain people started throwing around that Stay Frosty was nothing more than a bunch of blobbers. Was this true? Did we suddenly and without my knowledge become the very thing I loathe? I'm not on-line 24/7, so anything is possible. I was determined to find out for myself.
I respect everyones chosen play-style. But the following Infographic is purpose built around my own personal assumptions regarding what exactly a Pirate Corporation is. That is why Corps are ranked, from top to bottom, on the percentage of Solo fights they've had over the last six months. (From October 2013 to April 2014) The second assumption is that a higher percentage of Frigate fights make you a more pirate-centric corporation and a lower percentage makes you a less pirate-centric (and more blobby, gate campy) corporation. These are not hard and fast rules, but ya gotta have something.
Sources for data are public killboards, Eve Who, Eve Census and other public access boards. There was a lot of math involved and it is possible that a few mistakes may have been made, I readily admit that. All percentages have been rounded to the nearest tenth. I have added a few Corporations, as comparison, that may not be pirate corporations.
Here then, without further disclaimer, is the Infographic:

I know many people don't believe that, but it doesn't change the truth.
Keep the courage.
