History

The 19th Corporation was founded during the Kickstarter campaign for Star Citizen. The organization is part of The 19th Battalion, An Oceanic Gaming Community that was founded in 2010 by a small group of close friends who had a passion for gaming, camaraderie and above all, a gaming guild/clan and community that is not burdened by the struggle of politics and power hungry officers.

We offer spots for both casual and hardcore gamers and have rosters to ensure that all members get a fair go at all events, no matter what their available play time may be.

While we maintain a casual raid schedule, there are many of us who log in each and every day, pouring hours into the games we play together. However, we do have some official play times in which member’s are asked to try achieve at least a 75% attendance rate unless they otherwise specify:

Sunday/Monday/Wednesday/Thursday
7:00PM – 10:00PM (AEST)

Visit The 19th Battalion for more information regarding our gaming community.

The 19th Corporation

Within Star Citizen, The 19th Corporation has established itself as a front runner within the Oceanic region with a group of dedicated citizens. Our fleet boasts a large array of ships from the smallest all the way up to the Idris class ships. Being the first Oceanic signatory to join PACT – Powers Against Common Threats is another feat The 19th Corporation have achieved in which we are proud of. We have a ‘zero tolerance’ attitude towards piracy and will be actively engaged in both bounty hunting and scheduled organized task forces between ourselves and allied PACT signatories to rid the universe of pirates.

The 19th Corporation follows a corporate hierarchy with underlying divisions responsible for different tasks:

  • Exploration and Logistics
  • Trade and Marketing
  • Corporate Security and Protection

It is important to note that while you may wish to have an official title in one of the above roles, you will not be limited to that role and will be able to partake in everything The 19th Corporation offers.

It is with great anticipation and excitement that we look forward to the launch of Star Citizen. In the meantime we will continue to build further relations with our allies and better establish ourselves within the Star Citizen community prior to the games launch.
