Hard Liquor #8: Home Delivery

23 August 2018 - 08:10 AM

Anyone who has flown with me over the past 7 years or so, will have at some time or another heard me do a lot of stupid shit. Usually this results in someone dying or getting shouted at by me. However the stupidest stuff I do is lose my ship then go shopping in the arse end of some misbegotten region like Great Wildlands, Fountain, Stain, and Syndicate and end up buying some trash level ship just to keep on going.
 
Now you may remember Syndicate is where we fought a brief scrap with the CAS guys and upon being popped I hit the local contract market and bought myself a Raptor and a Rattlesnake. I want to use that Rattler, so we need to get it back to the corner of high sec RvB lives in, so this weekend, we are doing just that. You're going to fly cruisers and down, I'm not. And we're going to take my ship and I home via as much as low security space as we can.

Hard Liquor #7: FC’s Birthday

09 August 2018 - 04:58 PM

After a short hiatus last weekend, in which I worked late and you guys watched RvB in the Alliance Tournament right? RIGHT? We’re back on plan this weekend, and since its my RL birthday Monday I want to have a bloody good night with my fellow spaceship nerds, so we’ll be roaming about in one of my favourite hulls, the Enyo! Originally was thinking shield, but we’ve done that a lot the past few roams, so Armour it is.  

 

Bring plenty of booze as I will be!

Hard Liquor #5: Seven Years A ...

14 July 2018 - 03:58 PM

Roam, event, drunken blunder across New Eden, hideous feed, series of un-explainable victories.

 

Call it what you will, RvB Ganked or Ganked turns SEVEN years old on the 22nd July, and while Ganked still runs under the aegis of the good people over at Spectrefleet, I cannot very well ignore the birthday of the event that gave the server a bloody terrible drunken FC along with cementing RvB as a content provider for the wider EVE community.

 

The first RvB Ganked was a two parter, Rifters - FC'd by Manic Miner/Tim Pest and kitchen sink, FC'd by me. Wasn't too bad to be honest, broke even on the fight that really got me hooked on the drug that is slosh ops. You can read selections from Ganked's story over the years following 22nd July 2011 on my blog, or check out the many many campaigns over on the Ganked killboard. Hell you can join a Ganked event every week just by being a part of the Spectre community, or come fly with me on Hard Liquor of course!

 

I was thinking as HL #5 is being held close to Ganked's 7th, that we would reprise the original setup, a 2 part roam of rifters then kitchen sink, however I remembered that CCP has been kindly giving us ships for major birthdays in EVE, and so HL #5 will fly the Praxis & Gnosis. We will maybe lose them too...

 

Fits will follow, so keep an eye on the mailing list Hard Liquor, the RvB forums and discord, and my blog. I'll see you all there next Saturday!

RvB Presents: Hard Liquor #4 - The Warriors

04 July 2018 - 12:11 PM

Hard Liquor now has a few roams under its belt, some good, some less than good. As an FC once I find myself once again learning what works and what doesn’t in the modern EVE Online, however the biggest change to overcome is knowing what works for a smaller fleet than I am used to leading. That change is oh so hard, and probably lead to a few un-necessary deaths in Providence (OF ALL PLACES) last weekend.

Anyway, the roam itself was good fun, fair few explosions, some good tussles with locals in Providence and Curse/Scalding Pass, and the camaraderie of my fellow pilots adding icing to the cake. Nikolai had provided some goodies too, many folks now have them on their contracts including Nitro Oxide, Bixulu, Beejay, Green, Daneel, Nicose, and Sid.

On to the fun stuff, remember that poll I put out? Well apparently you all want this weekly, so here we go. I’m giving you what you wanted!

RvB Presents: Hard Liquor #3 - Faster Pussycat KILL KILL

27 June 2018 - 09:44 AM

Well, what can I say about Hard Liquor #2, started quiet while we chased around in low sec in our ships, however all got very interesting when someone tried to play with us in their Phoenix. A few of us popped to keep him occupied, but fleet bro's got us some support and him and his friends went down. Never know what you're gonna get on our roams really!
 
That brings us on to Hard Liquor #3! This week I'm feeling the need, the need for speed!

No real definition of what I want beyond inties. Although crows would be nice, so I can feel all Tom Cruise and shit.  We will be heading out to all points null, so bring lots of time. We're going hunting!
