The first in what I hope may become a series. If you have seen the 80's move you will know what this is all about, if not let me clue you in real easy like. Get from A to B, via C. Now then here comes the rules.

Everyone will start with "The Starter" in a solar system. "The Starter" will wait for everyone to align and then fleet warp . If you do not land with everyone else you will get penalty points. Upon landing guns are free. The checkpoint solar system and station are only given out after "The Starter" has been destroyed. You are free to leave the starter solar system whenever you like, but you may be going in the wrong direction. You get to the checkpoint solar system and pick up an item from "Mr Checkpoint". "Mr Checkpoint" then tells you where the finish Solar System is. You get there to "Mr Finish" as fast as possible and hand in the item if you still have it.

No Shuttles, Noob ships, Covert Ops, Stealth Bombers, Black Ops, Recons, Strategic Cruisers or Faction/Pirate ships. Other T2 ships are allowed.

Points are awarded depending on where you finish and in what ship class you start in. You must finish in the same ship you start in. It can be a different ship, however, for example if you get destroyed.

The top 50% get points awarded from 100-51 descending.
The 51-75% get 20 points
The 76-100% get 10 points.

Your points finish is multiplied by what ship you compete in:-

Frigate hull x 1
Destroyer hull x 1.25
Cruiser hull x 2
Battle cruiser hull x 2.5
Battleship hull x 4
If you finish in a pod you get your base finish points divided by 5

Bonus points added after ship type bonus:-

First place + 40 points
Second place + 20 points
Third place + 10 points
Getting to the checkpoint in the ship hull you started in + 10 points Added rule
Getting to the checkpoint in any ship/pod other than the one you started in - 40/25/20/12.5/10 points depending on ship class it is meant to be, ie. 40 for BS or 12.5 for Destroyer Added rule
If you finish with the check point item handed to Mr Finish +10 points. (You can get a duplicate from anywhere if you lose yours somehow.)
Most damage dealt on "Mr Starter" after landing from the start warp + 40 points
Any killmail in the time from start to last finish where you deal the most damage + 15 points (Max bonus of + 75 points)
There may or may not be bonus items, decided on the spot, throughout the race to hand in at the finish for extra points.

You must finish in the time limit to score any points Currently standing at two hours after "Mr Starter" has been destroyed.
You must finish within 2km of "Mr Finish" to score any points.
You must finish in the same ship hull you start in or a pod. ie if you start in a hurricane you must finish in a hurricane or your pod.
You can destroy other ships in the race.
You can destroy other ships.
No destroying other racers in the Checkpoint system or the Finish system. Aggression and damage is allowed but if a killmail is generated on a racer in those systems and you are on it you are disqualified.
Aggressing "Mr Checkpoint" or "Mr Finish" is instant disqualification.

It seems complicated, but it boils down to get from A to B, pick up item Z, get to C in same ship hull and hand in item Z.

DATE: Sunday Oct 21st - 1800 EVEtime

Start Location - Tuuriainas III - Expert Housing Production Plant


EVEMAIL Cartheron Crust before hand if you intend to participate, Entitled the mail CANNONBALL RUN ENTRY and with the text of what ship you are going to be using. There will be an evemail a week (and one day) beforehand and also in this thread to state the starter solar system. Contributions of ISK, Ships, Modules are appreciated and will be added to the prize fund. Likewise any ideas for prize categories will be considered. Also I will require two other people (who cannot participate) to help out with being a "Mr Checkpoint" and a "Mr Finish". I will be "The Starter" and one of the "Mr Checkpoints".

PS - I will be doing the course in the fastest route in the fastest ship beforehand (on an alt) if you finish faster than this you will get a point penalty (a truly silly race rule). Trying to weedle out jump clone shenanigans. ^_^ Also if I have missed something here, overlooked anything or you want to ask questions please do pipe up. :)

If so I can see Mang dieing - a lot! ;)

This is going to get messy :D

Quick question, if you finish before others can you go back and ambush people on the way in, and does it have to be in the same ship?

When you have crossed the finish you can do whatever the hell you like (still no kills allowed in the checkpoint and finish system however), but you cannot accrue further points. I will try to time stamp finish times by people to account for this. Errors no doubt will occur however. Gonna edit a few points in first post.

We will need sexy ladies with feathery hair and short jean shorts to participate.

One suggestion is to create contracts containing bookmarks for the next checkpoint.

Is it everyman for himself or is teamwork (fleeting) allowed?

How dangerous is the route? Does it go into low and null?

Everyone is fleeted at the start, to take the fleet warp. Fleet will allow you to warp to the checkpoint/finish people. I think I will have to make it so you can drop fleet and rejoin fleet whenever because people can and will do it anyways. (ideas anyone)

Teamwork and then back stabbing is encouraged as is maybe organising other people to kill other people for you enroute. . .

Contracts cannot be used because it is impossible to stop someone from troll buying them all. ;p

The route will have at least one unavoidable lowsec system. Multiple routes are available of varying length going safest/shortest/no-null etc.

Reminder bump for next week. No need to send a mail saying what ship you intend to use. Will just take screenshots after fleetwarp at start and compare at checkpoint and finish.

Also still need one person to help out at finish station with an alt (maybe another person aswell).

[EDIT] - Also for people thinking it may take too long, the fastest route going through the check point is easily less than one hour. :)

Seems awesome! And perhaps the first time being in a BS makes sense in RvB :D will mr. start be tanky enough that a BS can lock it before it goes down though?

And with tanky I mean supertanked slave abaddon... Or perhaps a triple XASB crystal mael levels ;p

I may or may not have a supertanked damagesponge, but I don't have Amarr BS trained. It may or may not also have some tricks if people think to burn out/warp out and snipe from range and get kills/points at the start and maybe to help against people teaming up against other people. :)

Thank you to the people taking part. Some of the coms were hilarious and some of the meta gaming what I hadn't even thought about. Results will be posted tomorrow when I have had time to math. And major props to everyone who went through Rancer AND Amamake on shortest route, I didn't think anyone would do both lol.

Bigger post tomorrow. :)
