[We are 5] Tyrian Trophy - An RvB Tournament - Teams Announced!!

11 Sep 2014



On the weekend of October 25th and 26th, RvB - through my good graces - will be holding a tournament as part of our 5th Birthday celebrations.
As with the RvB Spring Cup held earlier this year (Videos are here & here), this tournament will focus on 5 man teams, flying no ships larger than battle-cruisers.
A tournament that will play to the strengths of RvB and is entertaining to all of you, and all of the people who will watch this amazing event live on twitch.
The victors - and there will be many - will take home a share of around 35 BILLION ISK in prizes including ISK, Ships and in (and out of) game medals.
The details:
The tournament will be a double elimination format much like the NEO II & the SCL. This means that to get knocked out a team needs to lose two matches in the early stages rather than one, and makes for a more interesting format indeed. And like those tournaments will use a points system as detailed below. 
The tournament will be managed by me using challonge.com.
The finals will feature a best of 3 matches with the involved teams alternating bans.
You can x up as either a pilot or a team captain in this thread. The deadline for sign ups is 20.00 UTC September 29th 2014.  Following this I will assign pilots to a team, no later than 6th October. Once this is done, teams have the remaining time to practice for the real thing.
Those who have signed up as Captains elsewhere need not x-up again.
Yes, you have to be in RvB to take part.
Schedule & Bracket:
The Nitty Gritty:
Will be held on TQ. Will be held in an as yet unannounced system.
We will use arenas that I will setup. Spectators will be allowed, however they will have to show up in shuttles, so as not to clutter the overviews of the participants.



Commentators to include Sir Squeebles, Mizhir, Dracoth Simertet and Thecla Elarik
Streams to be run by Tyrendian Biohazard, and other additional parties.
Show to be hosted by Mangala Solaris

Weekend Themes - Central Info Thread

30 Apr 2014



RvB offers continuous drop in/out pvp to anyone who wants it, often featuring Cruisers, Destroyers & Frigates going at it on gates/stations and so on.  


As a way to vary the combat landscape we offer you all, RvB sets aside a weekend every other week to run Themed Weekends.  These themes often include small gang aspects, FFA aspects or even the chance to use things one would not normally use in day to day RvB.


Frank Bean is responsible for the theme schedule, which he posts here every couple of months.  Keep an eye on that thread for the lineup and dates.

Weekly Events. Fly Ships. Lose Ships. Get Free ISK.

04 Feb 2014



Holy mother of mercy! That's right, the popular Battlecruiser Lightning Thunder ((BLT) (…also known as Bacon Lettuce and Tomato) event will not be the only weekly hull reimbursement brawl each week.

The all new Cruiser Lightning Thunder ((CLT) (…also known as Chicken Lettuce and Tomato), two of them, will also be added throughout the week. This gives RvB more action packed events throughout the week. All t1 battlecruiser hulls will be replaced for BLT (Apart from tier 3 and Gnosis hulls). All t1 cruiser hulls will be replaced for CLT. So insure your ship and you could effectively make a profit on each loss! How cool is that!

The introduction of the reimbursed CLT events is a result of your hard work in helping us continue to maintain our POCO empire... All RvB profits go straight back to the community, POCO income is a large part of our revenue.

Without further ado, here is the weekly schedule for our reimbursed events:

CR - Cruiser Royale (EU TZ) - 20:00 EVE Time (UTC) Wednesday

BLT Jr - Battlecruiser Lightning Thunder (US TZ) -  02:00 EVE Time (UTC) Saturday - rotates with a Cruiser event every other week.

CfB - Cruisin' for a Bruisin' (Pacific TZ) -  14:30 EVETime (UTC) Saturday

So stockpile those fleet cruiser hulls each week and get ready for the event(s) during your playtime.

FC volunteers for various time zones are on a first-come first-served basis. A command member (or registered FC) present for the event will need to start a thread in the reimbursement section of the events forum after the fight (  Then members can post their losses for hull replacement.

RvB, the worst mining corp in New Eden.

Dear RvBers!
Make sure your diaries are clear for 20:00 on Wednesday 15th October.
– EVE University and Nova Prime have challenged us to a cruiser fight, so we will be deploying the full force of Purple! (Make sure to clone out of your expensive implants if you are scared of losing them).
The ship-types will be announced at the event and ships will be handed out at Jita base cost. On top of this, as there will be no Battlecruiser Royale this week (it should be at the same time) we will reimburse the hull cost of any cruisers lost. 
So pencil it in and get psyched!
Formup location:  Josameto III - Expert Distribution Retail Center 
Formup time: 19:00 15th October
Battle time: 20:00 15th October
Battle location: undisclosed (low-sec)
