Ganked 148: A Child is Born

17 Dec 2014


When: Boxing Day - Friday 26th December 2014
Time: Form up @ 18.00 / Departure @ 19.00
Where: Imya / Antem
(Quick visit to the EVE Gate, then its a run off into the wild blue yonder)
What: Angel ships. Specifically the Dramiel & Cynabal.
FC: Mangala Solaris
Comms: Mumble
Changed the date due to a change of RL plans for me.
Angels heralded the birth of space jesus and so we are using them to go on a roam looking for folks to pew pew.  
Doctrine calls for a shield preference on the ships. We will require Cynabals, Drams, Scythes & Scimis. One or two bubblers may be nice if we go to null. For those unable to fly such ships I am advising firetails, SFIs, Scythe Fleet Issues etc are suitable cheaper replacements. Right now only Dram fits are on fleetup, rest will be added as the week goes by.
Given the time of year, this roam may not result in a huge fight or any fights! As with G147, it will be more of a fun roam with good people and great chat.

[Video Contest] This is... RvB

22 Nov 2014



Media folks of RvB, RvB members with friends with media skills, RvB (and anyone else who cares to chip in) wants to give you PLEX!


If you do not live under a rock, CCP just released their new trailer for EVE: This is EVE. And its a douzy!  Easily the best trailer they have done. Period.


RvB would like something similar. 


Now we have in the past used the name This is RvB for a video that Catalyst XI made for us. Said video is bloody awesome - and always will be, but the game has moved on since then and so has RvB, so lets update that and make a new one given we've moved into our FIFTH year!


So what do we want?

We want a video, no longer than 5 minutes.

Must feature RvB action, comms, big fights, small fights, big ships, little ships.

Has to be epic. (A grand video, that shows us off amazingly well, and has a sense of adventure to it. Joining RvB shouldnt be an end, it should be the start of something awesome for pilots)

RvB media must be included (our logos etc as found here)

Must include our website address: www.rvbeve.com


Apart from the above, go fucking crazy and make it as good as you can.  Does not need to be called "THIS IS RvB" as you can imagine every EVE video for the next few months is going to try the THIS IS.. thingy. 



What do you get?

10 Plex from RvB for the winning video

3 Plex from Mangala for the winner up

2 Plex from Mangala for the 1st runner up.

2 Plex from Mangala for the 2nd runner up.



When do we want these by?

I want to give you all plenty of time to capture footage/comms and so on, so your deadline is 11.00 UTC January 20th. This will be followed by a poll in this thread of all submitted videos. The poll will run to January 31st. Following which the winner will be announced on 1st Feb.



Need inspiration - or hell more footage to "borrow", see the RvB Youtube Playlist I try to maintain, and the RvB Ganked playlist I also maintain. Additionally if you have questions, or queries, post in this thread.

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


FFF - Free Frigate Frenzy (US TZ) - 02.00 EVETime (UTC) Thursday

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.

TVP Presents Ganked 149: Fleet of the Year

17 Dec 2014




TVP, one of EVE's premier Incursion community's is proud to sponsor this RvB Ganked roam.


When: Saturday 27th December 2014
Time: Form up @ 18.30 / Departure @ 19.30
Where: Teonusude / Bosena
What: Ferox (Vulture) > Eagles > Moas > Shield Logistics > Ewar > Bubbles > Tackle
Fleetup link to come soon!!!!!
FC: Mangala Solaris
Comms: Mumble
For me, this particular fleet was the sign that Ganked had finally come of age. We found ourselves able to go toe to toe with many different foes as a consequence and every time we have rocked this fleet this year it has performed admirably. Closing out our year with this fleet seems fitting.
Fits and so on will hit fleetup as soon as possible.
Note, that as part of an excellent initiative by the guys over at TVP, the large majority of the Eagles, Moas, Scythes & Scimis for this roam will be provided by TVP. They will hand them out from the start point on the day.  Please bring your own replacements however.

[Social Event] A Tourists Guide to New Eden 16.12 18:00

12 Dec 2014



Hi guys!
As it is getting close to the festive season, and as many of you are new to EVE not just RvB - and in the interest of fostering that awesome Purple spirit - I will be leading an Interceptor & Fast Frigate roam round all the major sights of EVE.
This roam will take in the EVE Gate in New Eden, Steve - the first Titan to die, the BR- memorial/titan graveyard, faction home planets and so much more.
To join in, simply meet at the top station in Poinen on Tuesday the 16th December at 18.00 EVE. Once we have a few pilots with us, I'll lead us into the wild blueyonder.
NB: Pew pew is not expected, but as we'll be going into the wild places of EVE, it may well happen. So fit accordingly.
