I saw the news today and am sad to hear AU has closed its doors. 

 

If it wasn't for Agony, I likely wouldn't have played EvE for as long as I did.  It was quite the journey for me, from the noob roaming the stars, to my days in HDY with Pappy, hearing about Agony and the amazing classes that were on offer.  When HDY closed I went to faction warfare to get a better taste of pvp, while getting in on any AU pvp classes I could, eventually applying and joining Agony.  Of all the groups I ran with, I had the most fun in AU, both learning and helping out where I could with PVPU.  It was great times, and a LOT of crazy fights. 

 

Its safe to say there isn't another corp out there quite like Agony and you'll be sorely missed. Thanks for all the good times, and all the lessons provided.  Best of luck to you, where ever you land. o7

A sad day. I remember those early days in 2006 where I was about to unsubscribe and leave EVE when I decided to drop the last of my ISK on 'Training course' with Rells and Rasql. From then until when I finally left Agony in 2011(ish), Agony had a profound impact on both my in game and out of game life. Some highlights in the memory bank;

 

-My first ever PVP kill on my basic course when 13 of us in frigs took down a Scorpion in MHC.

-Jumping into a horde of rampaging Goons in my CovOps when Rells said he'd buy me a new ship and cloak (back when a CovOps Cloak cost upwards of 25 mill) 

-Putting together the very first CovOps course with Loon. 

-Running Operation Argus, Agonys first merc contract to knock out a tower in Pure Blind

-Missing Severs tactical warp and running at 90 degrees to a nasty Minnie fleet in my AB Armour Lachesis popping sig drugs and seeing me out track hundreds of howitzers whilst the fleet got back to me

-Every time we ran recon for fleets or classes

-All the other times with good friends when the antimatter started flying  

 

It was great hosting a bunch of UK Agony friends at my home for a weekend and meeting more people at drinks in London and at Fanfest. Talk about a special place in my heart for this corp. All the best to everyone and thanks for the good times.

Man, it suddenly got dusty in here...

 

Sad day indeed. I haven't played for years, but it was always nice to know Agony was out there doing Agony things. It was my corp and always will be. Met so many awesome people, some I've had the pleasure of meeting in real life too and you're all every bit as awesome as your pixel forms.

 

Fly safe, everyone.

It was a rather short, but very pleasant stay. I'm just sad that I didn't find you guys a lot sooner.

 

Take care all, and may we fly together someday once more o7

Games are fun because of who you play them with.
If you're not having fun you're doing it wrong.

It's been fun, it's been interesting, but all good things come to an end eventually.

Time to jump and move on and do other things, either in game or elsewhere.

 

And dammit Yam i read that post and went "wait a second.. i didn't post that".

Agony was the first name I'd heard about when I started EVE.

 

The PVP basic class gave me the confidence to leave hi sec for the first time, and the following roam was my greatest gaming moment ever.  It was epic!

 

Shall miss you guys and fly safe o7

I've had many, many amazing experiences with Agony!  Sadly, I barely play now (last kill was May, 2017), but will definitely look some of y'all up whenever I return (maybe September).  Things I like to reminisce on:  

 

My first PvP-U class:  Where I absolutely fell in love with PvP in EvE's and Agony specifically!  It was very fitting that this was held on Valentine's Day, 2009.  Not long after I joined Agony as a Trial, I quickly made my way through our old rank system (Ensign, Lieutenant, Lieutenant Commander).  I remember being so crazy nervous about making core, and also about being crazy nervous about making CEO!  

 

My First Fishing Kill:  April, 09.  I was intrigued by our corp's use of t1 frigates to solo interceptors.  So, before I could use t2 anything, I took out a cheap-fit Tristans, eventually catching a Crusader that considered me easy prey.  I loved hunting them, and it really fostered my love for roaming about nullsec looking for targets of opportunity.  

 

Frigate Proficiency:  I moved from the Tristan, to the Merlin, to the Rifter, to the Taranis, Ishkur, Helios, Jaguar, and on and on.  I bet some of you can remember my calls for help:  "Guys, do you think I can kill drake in a rifter?"... "Guys, I've tackled a tengu but can't break his tank"... "Guys, I've caught a ratting carrier... and he's now defenseless.  It's only 30 systems out, want to come gank it?"  And I love how y'all would form up and head out, and it'd turn into another epic night!  

 

Provi fight club:  This is one of my fondest memories, from durka to tweed, from earning my first billion isk and flying my first capital ship.  From helping to build a station (in which I still have a jump clone), to the amazing environment fostered in that region.  

 

My First Heavy Interdictor loss:  Back then, this ship was one my first t2 cruiser losses, but the killmail is amazing, with 10 Titans/motherships on it, and it only dying when it was Doomsday'ed off the field.  That battle was amazing, where we caught PL with their pants down and held a handful of supercaps.  If our allies had shown up like we'd planned, they'd have had a major victory of PL that day.  Instead, they made a halfhearted attempt after we locked down the PL supercaps, which ended in disaster for our allies.  

 

My first time in Faction Warfare...

Holding a frigate so we could DD it before Titans were changed...

My first time fighting for a wormhole...

Carebearing Sleeper sites with capitals...

Incursions...

Creating Super Safe spots... 

Coordinated bombing runs...

Investing in POCOs....

Carver accidentally jumping a titan into combat...

Black Ops Drops...

Hunting down Highsec members of corps that wardec'd us...

Moon mining POS shenanigans...

 

I could go on with a wall of text to rival some of our more long-winded members...  It's been 9 years in Agony, and I'm going to be sad to see it go.  

 

You're all still my brothers, and I hope to shoot (with?) you in space one day!

This was my first ever MMO and the best gaming experience anyone could ask for. It was always so easy to explain in recruiting: there is no better place in EVE. I loved it here. Thanks to every single one of you.

You've done great work for the community and it's been a pleasure to fly with (and against) you guys, at any time. 

 

Personally I've had great times with you guys back in 2012 in syndicate.

Sad to see you go, there's a gap left in space that hardly will be filled. 

 

All the best. You'll be missed.

This hit me hard I have to admit. I always felt like Agony was a place I would call home if I ever returned to EVE. Good luck in all your future en devours and thanks for the best times.


See you in fleet,

Best of luck with where ever your clones wake up.
