[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.

Gunboat Mayhem, Mk I & II: two destroyer FFAs

15 Nov 2014

Posted by Zakhs in Events and Contests



Greetings fellow internet spaceship pilots. I'm going to run two Free For Alls events with destroyers (and some frigates for the Mk II version). All ships will be fitted and provided for free.



800 fitted destroyers (Catalysts, Coercers, Cormorants and Thrashers) will be available at two poses in Poinen. All are buffertanked and fitted with afterburners, scrams and shortrange guns.

The Mk II version will also feature a few hundred attack frigates.



The Mk. I version will start at 10:00 evetime on Friday November 28th.

The Mk II version will start at 21:00 evetime on Sunday November 30th.

Both events will end when we run out of ships.



The ships are provided at two poses in Poinen, one for Red and one for Blue. Main fight will be at Nomaa gate in Poinen.



  1. Be in Poinen.
  2. Join the purple fleet named Gunboat Mayhem. I will start it 15 mins before the event begins.
  3. Undock in your pod.
  4. In the MOTD, there will be a person functioning as a warp-in to the pos for your corp. Warp to him.
  5. You should land inside the pos forcefield, close to two Ship Maintenace Arrays named Mayhem I & II.
  6. Right click on one of the Ship Maintenace Arrays and select "Access Vessels". It should open a window with all the ships available in the Array.
  7. Right click on one of the ships and select "Board Ship".
  8. Go fight. When you die go back to 4.


Things to note:

  • This is a Free For All event. It means that you can (and are supposed to) also shoot members of your own corp.
  • All destroyers are fit with a buffer tank, afterburner, scram and shortrange guns. I tried to balance DPS to Tank ratio while also considering their speed and range of their guns. 
  • The Mk II version will also have a few hundred attack frigates available. The Condors and Executioners are fitted with a tracking disruptor. They are supposed to use their speed advantage to stay just outside range of the destroyer's guns but within scram range while slowly wearing the tank of the destroyers down.
  • The Atrons and the Slashers will have a web fitted. With autocannons and blasters fitted they will be able to out DPS the Executioners and The Condors by a fair margin. But if they come within the range of the destroyers they will melt away very fast. 
  • All fits have very low skill requirements, but for the frigates to work as intended you will need some decent skills.
  • If you are are very low SP player and find that you repeatedly gets ganked by higher SP players, you can use the "RvB NoobFleet" channel to setup your own small fight arena with other low sp players.
  • If you prefer 1v1s, use the "RvB Fight Club" channel to find likeminded players to fight.
  • Don't bring your own fits or change the fits. This includes changing the types of ammo provided. All ships have enough ammo for 10 mins of continuous fire. If you stay alive for more than this, you are doing it wrong.
  • You are allowed to dock up and rep modules and your ship.
  • You are allowed to warp out of a fight to stay alive. All ships has a scram fitted. Use it to prevent your target from warping out.
  • Implants: You don't need them. I've tried to balance the fits as much as possible. Running in Pirate sets or Genos would ruin the balance and make the event less fun for everyone else.


Hope to see you there!!!

So save those dates so you can come out laugh , have some tea, and watch explosions on your screen as chaos unleashes.

-Are you new and don't think you have what it takes? Well no worries we want to see new faces and these events aren't about the prizes.. They are really a learning experience. So come out and you may just win a prize for no reason. RvB is about having fun and making it more then a corp.. It's about learning and the experiences you have that make eve worth playing.

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.
