Updated with prizes! Congratulations to all the winners! Let us know where you want your prize!




Took a while, but I think we've got a good idea what we're doing now, sorry for wall of text;

What? 10000 fitted T1 Frigs, in a POS, and a lot of hours of fun. Combat will happen systemwide (belts, planets,...). Comms will be http://rvbeve.com/fo...ndpost__p__4662 Mumble, the Ganked channel. Follow the link for how to download/install Mumble.

When/Where? Saturday, 3 November, 19:00 Eve Time, System is Abagawa, 4 jumps from both hq's. Zakhs has been very kind in setting up a POS there.

How? This is the special part, everyone can fit ships for this. The idea is to pool these all together, I want everyone's crazy ideas in one place! Pvp/fun/weird/crazy/... fits all allowed, the crazier, the better! On the night of the event, the general idea is that you pick a random ship, head out to get blasted, rinse and repeat. There are just a few simple rules regarding fittings;

- Any T1 Frig allowed.

- No ECM/Smartbombs!

- Please fit the majority of your ships T1, not only cheaper, more likely everyone can fly it.

- Include some ammo please, T1/T2/Faction, doesn't matter

- Rigs not needed, but allowed.

- Unfitted ships will be available as some people are donating these, please let me know if you need some of these.


Ok, I'll fit ships, now what? These ships will be transported with a freighter to Abagawa, then contracted to Zakhs corp (with the POS). Then the ships will be moved from station to the POS with an Orca. Update 2/10: Orca support is sufficient, thank you! Del has contacted me 2500 Rifters, if you need some ships to fit, let me (Torve) know and I'll contract them!

- Blues, contract ships to Mactabilis Maero, Torve Starduster
- Reds, contract ships to Cameron Zero, Zao Amadues, Torve
- If you want, you can transport the ships yourself ofc.
The Sukuuvesta Corporation Factory at Abagawa VII - moon 14, is the station to transport to! Contract fitted ships to Zakhs from this location!
For the contracts, please make it item exchange with a few days expiration, 860000m³ max capacity (= 30-ish fitted ships, a lot more packaged), some freighter pilots can haul more, please get into contact with your chosen freighter pilot to work it out!

Help needed:
- People attending/fitting
- Salvage team on the night of the event! If you have an alt that is not in RvB, feel free to clear the field a bit.

Notes:
- Prizes/ship donations welcome, if you wish to donate a prize, you decide what to give it for, be creative!
- If you'll (try to) attend, please let me know, also let me know if/how many ships you'll be fitting. I'll add you to the list, this is mainly to see how close we are to the 10k goal :)
- Ideas/suggestions/comments welcome!

Courtesy of Martin, he created an ingame channel, FFA organizers. No PW, feel free to use this for questions/fittings/swapping stuff/chat while fitting/...

Now, what will happen the night itself:

- A few hours before it all begins, the node will be reinforced (ideally at 16:00) and Zakhs will begin to jettison all the ships.

- At the start of the event, everyone will undock from station in a pod, rightclick on it, and "Enter Starbase Forcefield Password". The password will be given in RvB Community.

- You will then be able to enter the POS, Zakhs will have an Orca pilot online to warp to, so eventually we make a temporary fleet. You will now all be smartbombed, muahaha now all be able to enter a ship of choice and commence!

- As long as you do not DC, leave the system or eject from you ship the password will keep working. In short, you will be able to warp back inside the shield and grab another ship. Should you do any of the above, you just have to reset the password on your pod.

- Thank you to Zakhs for giving me this explanation, shame on me for being a retard and not asking earlier.


Schedule of the event:

Friday the 2nd: One of the kind directors/CEO's will ask CCP to reinforce Abagawa, starting from the 3rd 16:00 for a period of 12-ish hours, to be safe.

D-Day 16:00-19:00: Zakhs will begin to jettison the ships when the node is reinforced.

18:00: Fleet will be up, along with comms (Mumble!), people start to get drunk and stuff. Password will be decided, questions will be answered, overviews set right, etc.. Fleet only will be used to get everyone to the POS at the same time, after that, it'll be disbanded and we will use Mumble/ RvB Community chat channel.

19:00: Once everyone managed to enable the password on his/her pod (oh god) we will warp to the POS, pick a ship, and warp to a combat zone. The fun begins. A supply zone will be available should your ship have no ammo/you run out, just don't take too much. Combat zones will be Asteroid Belts (10), Stations (4) and Stargates (2). If enough people show, Planets (9) can be added. At the start of the event, fleet will be disbanded, chat channel to use is RvB Community, and if you wish voice chat is Mumble.

Besides the 2500 Rifters indicated I would donate, I will also donate an as yet undisclosed sum of ISK (large) for prizes, once the type of prize is known. This is for someone else to decide.

I can donate some (3000ish) 150mm Autocannons and an indeterminate amount of ammo to the cause.

EDIT:

I also have an alt what can fly a freighter (900k m3). I would suggest people move the hulls/modules/ammo to the station in system before assembling them, as this means fewer trips for the haulers. 4 jumps doesn't seem like a lot, until you're in a ship that turns slower than rock ages.

Good idea.

900k m3 / 2500m3 (per frigate) = 360 frigate hulls per trip compared to the fraction of ships you can move fitted. Plus, it'll only take one or two freighters to haul all the modules, I'm sure.

Of course, if we REALLY want 10,000 frigates, we're looking at about 30 freighter loads to move them all. *shudder*

Wow, great guys, thank you for all the support!

Indeed I would suggest transporting the ships packaged, if that's not possible, then it's only 30-ish a trip.
As we have like, 3500 unfitted ships already (awesome), there are plenty to go around for the people who would like to fit some!

As I recall, rigged and fitted ships can be put into courier contracts. (I've done this before moving from one region to another)

What would be of benefit would be to have ships fitted in whichever station is convenient to everyone and then courier contract them over to someone to have them moved to a station in the system where things will be taking place.

I was thinking about having a little fun by setting up a bunch of ships (mostly of the rarely used flavors, mostly for shits and giggles) but cannot mass the numbers you boys are throwing around. Being space poor can be the suck sometimes.

I'll assist in assembling ships as needed.

It would be best to ship all the hulls to the system where the fight will occur, THEN assemble them. Otherwise the orca/freighter pilots will put a bullet in their heads :P
