ONE MAN CREW - solo PVP by many

The video includes 15 fights that have been selected by our panel of judges. The fights are carefully picked to include a wide spectrum of solo PVP that both motivate newbies and impress veterans. However, frigate and destroyer fights were excluded. The total length is 66 minutes. 

Youtube: https://www.youtube....?v=iM5Zblp9UHc 
Vimeo: (coming soon)
EVE-files: (Issues with evefiles. Updates will follow)
Mediafire: http://www.mediafire...e_Man_Crew.mp4 

Original forum post (with rules and additional info)
List of winners

To those of you who don’t know about the project. It is a solo PVP contest run by Aldap (The char has been sold and is now under new hands) and I. The concept is simple: The contestants recorded their solo fights and submitted the best one(s). A panel of judges then picked the 15 best which have been selected for this video and win prizes. 

Aldap was a well-known solo PVPer who had inspired many. However he had to quit EVE and decided to raise money for the project by selling his char. He has done many great things for the EVE solo PVP community and without him this project would not have been a thing.
 
Enjoy

One Man Crew (it's a video link as well as a title icon_razz.gif)
 
This is a great chance for you to get into the solo pvp scene and win awesome prizes. There is no excuse! Install fraps and get going  ;)

 

What it is:

A recorded-fights contest, to encourage and reward solo PvPers who capture & share their footage, especially unlinked fights.
The resulting collection will be judged, rewarded with prizes, and made into a compilation video.

 

The people who are running it:

Aldap and I
DHB_Wildcat, are34, Guados, Clahim, Prometheus Exenthal, rekina, Buhhdust Princess and Daneel Trevize have been recruited to judge.

When it is:

Starting with Rubicon, running for 3 months. November 19th, until February 20th.

What the prize criteria are:

1) The "Kickass Moves" award.
For example: picking up drones on field after yours are destroyed.
Offlining mods during fight to win on that last %s, etc...

2) The "Creative Setup" award.
Original fit. Out of the box thinking behind the ship/situation.

3) The "Balls Deep" award.
Includes things such as: fighting heavily outnumbered. Fighting outclassed ship-wise.
Fighting against ECM on field, and just generally being brave as hell against the odds.

4) The "Motivational for New Pilots" award.
Fight that gives hope, like winning with a simple ship that every 6months old pilot can fly.
Or other situations that a new pilot would look at and smile "I could do that".

What the prize rewards are (prize pool is growing):

● Every pilot whose fight makes it into the video, will receive 500m ISK and a Navy Cruiser.

● The four pilots who are chosen for the (4) special awards, will receive 1bil ISK and a Pirate Cruiser.

● And the pilot who is chosen for the best solo fight of the video, will receive 2.5 bil ISK and a Pirate Battleship.

These are the minimum values and number of prizes, things are already starting to snowball and the options & pot could well multiply before the entry period's up.
Sadly, the initial funding is coming from Aldap's plans to sell his main character at the completion of this project.

 

As at the top of this post, Aldap's project explanation video + collection of his best recent solo fights. Also it has DHB_Wildcat's POV using a Chremoas in lowsec.

The official Eve-O forums thread.

The Reddit intro thread.

 

Who is Aldap?

Aldap is a great solo pvp'er from Club Bear who specializes in using cheap t1 ships and mindgames to overcome superior foes. He has inspired many to start solo pvping as the requirement to do his type of combat is low, but the results are great. Check out his youtube channel here.

 

Looking forward to see your submissions

Huge props for the preference on no links stuff though, there'll be push back (Yes I am reading the FHC thread!), but still will make for more interesting video from pov at least.

Hopefully we have sorted it so both link fans and haters will like this. 

 

I will see if we can dig up some solo videos from the judges. However some of them haven't really made unlinked videos and there are a few (including me) who haven't made their own solo video.

That moment when you realise almost all 'solo' pilots have links >.>

Because almost everyone has links(at least in lowsec), with increased chance the more there are together against you. So if you want to pull apart several people while solo, it helps if your ship can go at least as fast as theirs if you're in the same fit. Or you're at least as cap-efficient while tanking, etc.

 

I don't think you can claim that the good solo players would suddenly struggle if everyone went without links, it's almost always effectively a relative bonus.

 

Anyway, the reward for submitting a fight that gets in the top ~15 is highly likely to be nearer 1bil + PLEX. And the special prizes in the ballpark of 4.5-5bil each. Enough incentive to try? B)

Noob question: what version of fraps do you use? I only find the one that limits recording to 30 seconds and includes a watermark ...

Personally I do not use FRAPS but: http://www.fraps.com/buy.php £23 to remove the trial limitations.

 

I believe the OMC guys are working on some things to help people understand the capture software options available to them, and a sort of standard of effective settings to use when compressing/transcoding for upload/submission (e.g. HandBrake).

 

I've used VLC player as a FOSS alternative. I do so in a manner that transcodes on-the-fly so I don't produce & store huge raw files.

http://failheap-chal...ut-FRAPS-a-test

I'm still fixing my Windows proper gaming setup on my PC, but last I checked I'd tweaked it to do just 20fps capture, at ~5.5k variable bitrate. Because almost all Eve footage is sped up in videos. I wanted to find how to try using the Lagarith codec or similar, for lossless capture while hopefully producing smaller files than FRAPS does. But I'd stopped as the ~80% of raw quality capture was good enough for me atm while I'm just using it to record fun fights and learn from mistakes, rather than compete with the top vid makers, and because my setup seems to manage this with no noticable CPU/framerate toll, or storage filling.
