As a member of any player corporation or alliance, it is your civic duty to be the corporation/alliance you want to be in. If the corporation/alliance isn’t at your liking, it is your responsibility to do something about it.
Common Grievances and Resolutions
How Not to Resolve Problems
If you lack such initiative to even attempt to improve the state of the corp/alliance, most corps/alliances will kindly invite you to leave. Should you develop a pattern of leaving without first taking action, you will unlikely find a corp that suits you, and potentially suitable corps may be reluctant to accept someone whose employment history demonstrates them to be a vagabond.
Many players feel the need to take a last stand and deliver a dramatic Corp/Alliance-wide EVEmail or soliloquy prior to leaving, typically including some kind of call to action of sorts (usually along the lines of “Your leaders have failed you! You all should leave the corp/alliance!”.
Such an effort is futile at worst and just plain embarrassing at best. You failed to take the initiative, so you think it appropriate to ask others to take initiative? You’re crying out because that’s what mature and successful capsuleers do? And even if you did manage to convince others to leave, you’d just be doing the corp/alliance a favor. Corps and alliances do not need members who lack spine.
Channeling Dissent into Organizing a Mutiny or Coup d’etat
Mutinies don’t make sense in the context of virtual MMOs. Things aren’t going your way, so you’re not going to do anything at all? Perfect way to better advance your goals and to better enjoy the game.
Coup d’etats are rarely legitimate. Drawing legitimacy to the cause first requires an honest, sustained effort to realize the change yourself. I most cases, the problem would then have resolved itself. If it hasn’t, then even if legitimacy has been established, it may not be technically feasible to actually take over due to the mechanics of corp/alliance management.
Leaving the Corp/Alliance
Your final duty to your corp or alliance is to submit your reasons for departure and feedback on concerns and areas in need of improvement regardless. You should uphold this duty whether or not you leave on amicable terms.
