Sunday Summer Camp w/Zen

26 June 2018 - 05:13 PM

You asked for it... you got it...


Time to get out of bed EARLY on Sunday and school the sneaky industrials trying to sneak through into low sec with their tasty goodies.   

Starting at an UNHEARD OF 18:00 Eve Time (2pm EST for the yanks). 


Details including FITS AND COMP here:




But be ready to transition to this if we are countered too heavily:





T1 & Pirate Frigate Balance Guide - Updated for 2018

08 January 2018 - 07:18 PM

Invaluable must-read guide for frigate pilots.  July 2017 and January 2018 updates.





28 September 2017 - 02:02 AM

WHAT:     Two cruiser-down fleets will form around the core of two EVE_NT 5-man fleet comps flown by our tournament pilots.  Each fleet will consist of the core (Battleship, BC, Cruiser, Destroyer, Frigate) + RvB pilots flying Cruiser Down joining the smallest of the two purple fleets.


WHEN:      Saturday Sep 30th @ 21:00


WHERE:  Josameto Arena

WHO:       RvB Tournament Pilots + All of RvB


Come join the RvB tournament pilots for a live practice on Tranquility in the Josameto Arena!  The more pilots we have the better, so jump in a Cruiser down and join the smallest purple event fleet!  Your FCs will likely be Zen Tsai and Metal Jack.  

EVENT: "10,000 Armor Plates" Sunday 8/27 22:00

25 August 2017 - 02:22 AM

Happy 10k kills to me!  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D 


We will be roaming Amarr FW low sec in heavy metal.  The comp should be something like the following:


25% Guardians/Augorors (2 Cap Transfers each)

60% Armor DPS (T1 Battleships > BC > Cruisers) all with plates, MWD recommended



Boosts (Repair and Resists, CS or BC)


ECM/Damps (Blackbird w/plate, Celestis, Maulus, Keres)


Recommended Augoror Fit


Adjust charges and ammo as required.  These are just examples.


Official Music will be ...



Listen to that song.  Get yourself psyched.  Watch the cheesy video and embrace it all. 

We're gonna have some fun.


✠ The only time we're gonna be easy is when we are KILLED BY DEATH!!!  ✠


Caveat Emptor:  FC will be Zen Tsai and he will not be entirely sober.  What you bring may very well die horribly, stupidly, embarrassingly, and FC may laugh/sing/not notice.  But won't intentionally burn the fleet.  Plan accordingly.


BONUS:  I will be making an announcement regarding some very exciting plans you won't want to miss!


If you can be there, RSVP with what you want to bring!

I feel a tad guilty for patting myself on the back, but indulge me for a few lines and I'll tell you a story.


Tonight I hit 10,000 kills on the RvB Blue KB.


When I noticed 10k creeping up, it messed with my head a little to be honest.  Just imagining the time invested in a number like that.  I wondered if I should make a big event out of it or something.  Or should I try to make it a really epic solo kill?  And what's next for me after I hit 10k?  After a short (month) break from Eve at 9,997 kills, I decided to try to get into a PVP rhythm again and put the upcoming number out of my head.  


I decided to fit out an active Vexor w/MWD reinforced by Mid-Grade Asklepians and Standard Exile, loaded up the dirty schoolbus yellow Interbus skin, cranked up some Motorhead, and headed straight for Black Rise via Tama.   Fate must have been shining on me because I had a good roam.

After dodging the Algos' blob, I ran into a 13-man Eve Uni frigate fleet and decided to give it a go.  I managed to string them out a bit from the acceleration gate at a Medium and fought it out with them.

So yeah, that was fun.  Gave me the full-on shakes, and I'm really happy that Eve Uni was involved. 


Thank you RvB for all of the amazing content you have treated me to over the years.
