Notice!: We will kickoff a bit earlier, at 15:00 Eve Time the 26th. No problem if you can't make it that early, I think we can guarantee that there are ships left .
Hello again RvB! Not that we were modest to begin with, but now we're really ambitious! The plan is 26000 fitted ships for the next massive, killboardbreaking (didn't get the server last time ) epic FFA!
What is this, I can't...: In case you missed out on the previous events, the concept is pretty simple. There will be fitted ships ready for you, at a POS. You warp to the POS, using the password given to you to enter it's shield, grab a ship, and go to where the fight is at. Rinse and repeat for many, many hours. What makes this fun? Dude, it's free ships waiting to be blown up! Apart from that, the chance of getting the same fit in a row is relativly small, thanks to our wonderful fitters! Comms will be EvE voice.
TIP FOR NEW CHARACTERS ATTENDING!: Train up each weapon skill (small energy, projectile, hybrid, missiles/rockets) to 2 or 3, this will greatly help you, as not each ship will have the traditional weapon (i.e. Punishers with autocannons). Everything will be tech 1 though, don't worry!
Where: Poinen, top station, Poinen 1 -Moon 2- Spacelane Patrol Logistic Support. From here, ships will be moved to the POS. Also, here is the pool of ships and mods.
When?: 26 January 2013, 15:00 EvE time (+ following days )
How? Rolling as last time, we need people to fit ships and maybe a few more Orca pilots! Thanks to the handful of people willing to do this, we've had our last two events, you don't have to do 1000 ships to help us, we appreciate any and all help!
Note for fitters: As last time, mods and ships are being produced, you can fit ships you have lying around, or request ships and mods from me (Torve). Thanks to Del DelVechio, Northern Misfit,... we have a lot of modules and ships available to hand out! Stuff will be contracted to you in Poinen top station. When you have fitted the ships, please contract/station trade them to Zakhs! Also, please read the fitting rules further up ahead, thank you!
IMPORTANT!: Retribution made contracting of fitted ships a lot easier, way less clicking, thank you CCP!
Note for Orca alts: You will have to join the corp Zakhs has set up for this, ships will appear in the corp hangar in Poinen top station to be moved to the POS. You can also help during the event by jettisoning ships from the hangars of the POS.
Fitting rules!!! IMPORTANT!:
- Any T1 Frig allowed.
- No ECM/Smartbombs!
- Include some ammo please, ideally 1 or 2 reloads. T1/Faction ammo allowed. This also goes for drones.
- No tech 2 fits, T1 and respective meta modules please!
- Rigs allowed, not necessary.
- All kinds of fits allowed, pvp/fun/weird/crazy stuff, everything! We really had some magnificent fits last time around!
- Donations are very much appreciated! These can be prizes, isk, ships or mods. For prizes, you can decide what to give it out for! Iskies, please send these to Del DelVechio, mentioning it's for the FFA. Mods and ships can be contracted to Torve (me), these'll be added to the pool to hand out. Also take note of Klapen's post, if we gather 5 billion (donations to Del), he will do something really, really awesome in his unique Klapen Style .
- Ingame channel FFA Organizer is still up and running for ranting, sharing hilarious fits and stuff.
- Please, do not bring your own T2 ships to the event, this is not needed.
- It also helps to join the fleet and hop on comms, it's a blast.
- Events will return (Faction fleets last time), will be announced on comms, yes, you will die from them. No, you shouldn't care.
I don't need sleep!: Get the most kills in this event (honestly, do get some sleep though!), and get a Navy Scorpion, donated by Zakhs! Won by Rose Valora, with 1998 kills! Congrats!
Second Place: Second on total kills? No worries, you're not left out this time, you will get a fitted Ashimmu, donated by Galenwade! Won by Khador Vess, 1060 kills! Congrats!
time is the charm!: Third place is good for 4 fitted Faction frigates (one of each race), donated by Galenwade! Won by Angeylahdevi, 999 kills! Congrats!
First Blood: First kill (confirmed by killboard, unless very clear) after the start signal will get a Daredevil, sponsored by Mangala! Won by Rose Valora, for the first killing blow of the entire event! http://rvbeve.com/pu...l&kll_id=440104
Lemming n° 1: Get the most losses in this event, and you get 100 Damage Controls II, sponsored by Mangala! Not compatible with most kills. Outside the top 3, Paul StClair had the most losses, which actually just proves he didn't warp off , congrats!
Amarr Victor!: Most kills in an Amarr frig gets you a Navy Omen, sponsored by Mangala! Won by Rose Valora, congrats!
Ducttape Warrior: Most kills in Minmatar frigs gets you a Stabber Fleet Issue, sponsored by Mangala!
Peace, bro.: Most kills in Gallente frigs gets you a Vexor Navy Issue, sponsored by Mangala! Won by Major Vincent, congrats!
Money talks.: So does a Caracal Navy Issue, get it with getting the most kills in Caldari frigates, sponsored by Mangala! Won by Durr22, congrats!
L33t Weekend Warrior: Get a kill on 13:37 Sunday (first kill with that timestamp) and get a set of CCP gift ships, donated by Galenwade! Won by Darrin Lann, congrats!
Receiving the love!: Get the loss mail with the most involved parties, in an FFA ship (one of the frigs). You'll get another Hug(inn), sponsored by Mangala! For this one, please submit loss mails if you think you have a chance, finding this out on a killboard is madness! Loss mails can be linked in this post, or mailed to me.
From Rookie to Vet: The NoobFleet member with the most kills, gets 100 T1 frigates of choices, T1 fitted if desired. Sponsored by the FFA team! Would appreciate some help from the NoobFleet leaders for this, if you could do a quick glance at the killboard to identify the winning member, that would be awesome! Galenwade added another 5 fitted Harpy's and 1 fitted Vengeance to the prize pool!
Random!: One of you will randomly get a Proteus, donated by Northern Misfit! I will use a random number generator for this, the person who's killmail is at that number, will be rather lucky! In essence, the more active people do have a higher chance, but everyone who participated in the FFA has a chance for this price, not bad, eh?
More prizes will be added very soon, still sorting them out!
