Alliances are not analogous to fleets. But you already know that.

Additionally, there are no monthly fees for members above and beyond fleet imposed taxes.

Thirdly, fleets are not required to have offices, and the fleet HQ does not have upkeep.

Fourthly, all upkeep in EVE is handled by ingame currency and commodities, not in RMT currency.

Finally, Corporations do not vanish unless they are deleted.

Which gets us right back to:

Fleets are not charged to simply exist.

So stop lying.

So yes, you do have to pay an upkeep on the corps to keep them running.
You can't discern between expanding and operating...how quaint.

OK, let me break this down for you.

1. You're right, they're not required, but if you want to recruit members, YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THE HQs. No way around that. And yes, the Corp HQ's does have an upkeep if you want access to a corp hanger. Even on the Corp's first HQ's.

2. If you have enough members that you don't care about a HQ's, if you make a POS, guess what, there's fuel costs that must be paid to keep it running.

3. Dilithuim is not a RMT currency in the true sense because it can be earned through the game, and with the proposed plan, it can be earned through the mine if you choose to get one. So yes, you can equate ISK or station fuel to Dilithuim. Each takes work to amass to use on whatever it is you're wanting to use it on. STO just provides the convenience of being able to pay money to amass it, like selling PLEXes on EVE.
