Once upon a time, RvB held a rather large Frigate FFA. 100,000 fitted frigates kind of large!
However turned out killing more than 50k or so of the things was mindnumbingly boring.
So the remainder just sat gathering dust in the POS that we stored them in and occasionally used for small FFA's run by Zakhs.
I decided that rather than them sitting there till the server goes down, or the POS magically dies, we will make them available to all of you to use as you see fit.
You can use them when fcing your first ever fleets, you can use them for suicide roams to null, use them to entice newbros to join up (get them in, get them possed and get them grabbing ships!) or simply grab the ships and refit them with better weapons and use them in your day to day RvB. Hell you want to run an impromptu FFA at a planet, use them for that too!
From 18.00 UTC Thursday 16th April 2015, until they run out you will be able to access a POS for your specific RvB alliance and take ships from the SMAs therein. Each corp will have a bookmark to its Alliance POS, to make getting on site easier for all. Both the Red & Blue POS are in Poinen. Bookmark is saved under a Corporation Bookmark in a folder called "Free Frigate Summer".
For the first hour or two of this going live on Thursday, we will be hosting at FFA at the Obanen gate in Poinen using these ships, with prizes donated by me for whatever the hell reasons I want! Gotta be in it to win it. DONE.
As said above, use these frigates as you see fit.
Note - that some of the fits may no longer work if the frig saw changes since October 2013, and some may be the patented RvB FFA troll fits. Feel free to take such frigates and refit them at your leisure, I am sure our market gods will purchase whatever mods you do remove.
Note - We have deliberately not included the exploration or logistics frigs as meh why bother I am sure we'll find a use for them one day.
Note - None of this is mandatory. If you do not want free frigates, then you never have a need to visit the POS.
