The BIG Dream

BIG is an ethical and principled organization built upon a strong set of ideals. BIG's close adhereance to these ideals is one of the many things that makes our corporation unique.


Integrity

 :: Adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.

BIG has a strong sense of moral and ethical responsibility, a commitment to honesty, fairness and courtesy to all EVE players and a strong loyalty to our friends inside and outside of the corporation.


Persistence

 :: To continue steadfastly in some state, purpose, course of action, or the like, especially in spite of opposition.

BIG aims to be steadfast in all its political and business commitments, seeing through all it's responsibilities until it is no longer able. We passionately adhere to our principles without exception or deviance.


Freedom

 :: The power to exercise choice and make decisions without constraint from within or without; autonomy; self-determination.

Every member of BIG is entitled to play the game in any way they choose, with the exception of piracy as it conflicts with our commitment to integrity. BIG is committed to providing its members with everything that they need to play the game the way they choose at no charge. No task or operation is mandatory and BIG members are never given strict orders or forced to fill quotas.


Solidarity

 :: A union or fellowship arising from common responsibilities and interests.

BIG is committed to creating a tight-knit community, a sort of family. To this end we have implemented one of the most comprehensive sharing programs in EVE. There are no personal possessions or wealth in BIG. All resources are owned by the corporation and not by any group or single member. Strict security standards are observed in order to preserve the integrity of the corporation's collective resources.


Perspective

 :: The faculty of seeing all the relevant data in a meaningful relationship.

BIG is cautious rather than impulsive and considers all long term implications of its actions and policies. BIG is not willing to compromise it's principles in for short-term benefits with obvious long-term negative consequences.


Transcendence

 :: The faculty of seeing all the relevant data in a meaningful relationship.

BIG is more than a corporation in EVE, it is an ideal to strive towards. The corporation represented inside of the game of EVE is only a manifestation of the pure and unwavering principles that it is founded on. BIG exists beyond its members and beyond the game, as an ideal to be achieved at all costs, no matter how impossible.


BIG History

BIG Business

The BIG Lottery

The BIG Lottery holds the title of longest running player run event.

The very first BIG Lottery round was in fact held in beta (Monday 2003.04.14 to Sunday 2003.04.28).

The first release round ran from Monday, 2003.05.12 to Sunday 2003.05.25, and has been running non-stop ever since.

March 12, 2009 : The BIG Lottery surpassed quarter of a trillion ISK worth of tickets sold.


The BIG Deal

The BIG Deal is a battleship BPO share program, and was started back in 2003, as a way for fledgling producers to get started with battleship production, without having to pay the full price of the battleship BPO's.

Instead it's possible to buy (any number of) 1/10th shares of any given battleship BPO, if nothing else to "try the waters", before going all out.

The BIG Deal is running to this day, but is less activly used, as ISK has become easier to come buy than back in the days.


BIG Merchant Bank of EVE (BMBE)

The BIG Merchant Bank of EVE is EVE's first bank, it opened for business 2006.02

BMBE is specializing in large ISK loans, and is not a deposit bank (hence the "Merchant" moniker)
