No Trademark (Player corporation)
No Trademark is a USTZ PvP Entity based in Syndicate.
No Trademark has held dominion over the TA-A7V constellation in southern syndicate since shortly after it's arrival to the area in early 2007, ousting many much larger challengers who have attempted to seize control in the past. NOTR specializes in small gang, guerilla warfare tactics leaving the systems they patrol inhospitable to other groups and organizations. They maintain proxy control over the neighboring region of Solitude due to constant acts of piracy and terrorism of it's low security systems.
In the months leading up to the release of Empyrean Age, the availability of targets in Syndicate and neighboring low sec areas became scarce. Factional Warfare initially offered an abundance of kills in neighboring regions such as essence, verge vendor, black rise, etc. at the expense of leaving Syndicate devoid of life. Once the newness of Factional Warfare wore off the abundance of targets dried up as well. NOTR relocated to hostile space in the Curse region in the hopes that a new region would provide the targets needed to revitalize the corp, but it seemed too little too late. No Trademark disbanded in early September 2008, however the corporation reformed 6 weeks later on October 19th 2008, returning to Syndicate to reclaim TA-A7V the same day.
Both Syndicate and Solitude regions prospered during NOTR's absence; During the three months NOTR spent in Curse, Syndicate and especially Solitude experienced a population explosion. The entire area had become vibrant and full of life. TA-A7V as well as surrounding systems throughout Solitude where home to a multitude of corporations and alliances, old and new alike, both industrialists as well as pvp focused organizations. With NOTR's return, especially combined with heavy use of their Black Ops doctrine, the area very rapidly returned to "normal" with many of the new inhabitants either dying off or abandoning the area without a fight. NOTR has pledged Y9G as their eternal home, though they recognize the benefits of allowing the area time to recooperate.
Perhaps Known For
No Trademark has competed in the 4th, 5th, and 6th Alliance Tournaments. During the 4th alliance tournament they competed as "The OSS." Between the 4th and 5th tournaments they split off and founded "Notoriety Alliance," which is the alliance used in the 5th, 6th, and any subsequent Tournaments. They gained most of their renown during the 5th Tournament, advancing to the quarter finals as a virtual unknown. They quickly became a tournament favorite, though they came in 5th overall in the tournament after being knocked out by another syndicate resident Cry Havoc. Note: No Trademark exists as an independent corporation for most of the year, the alliance tag is only active for use during the tournaments.
No Trademark are the pioneers of Black Ops warfare. They were the first corporation to successfully utilize Black Ops Battleships specifically for direct PVP engagements, developing many of the strategies and tactics used by what are now known as "Black Ops" corps. Black Ops warfare is the logical "next step" beyond the well known cloak/Recon style warfare, and it's a style of combat that is slowly gaining popularity despite the extremely low adoption rates of Black Op Battleships themselves. It's a specialty of small gang pvp groups typically involved in asymmetrical conflicts against much larger opponents.
