Frigatus is a Frigate Hull theme, with an FFA component. Fleet & solo aspects come in to play.
0.00 UTC 25/4 - 11.00 UTC 27/4
 
 
Weekend Theme Rules
 
- Only Tech 1 (T1) Frigate Hulls are allowed. No Destroyers, Cruisers, BCs or BS hulls.
- Tech 1 (T1) Frigates means NO Tech 2 or Faction or Pirate Frigates.
- Tech 2/faction fittings are fine.
Unless an event is taking part at the same, then the rule is suspended for a short while.
 
- It is FFA in The Forge!
 
- FFA stands for FREE FOR ALL. All members are targets for everyone else. That means Blues can shoot Blues and Reds can shoot Reds. You cannot shoot members of the opposing corp if they are in your fleet. FIX YOUR OVERVIEWS!
 
- Pilots flying in The Forge, be they SOLO or In FLEET are covered by this theme. Flying Solo does not make you exempt. 
 
- Fleets have to be Purple, i.e. open to both corporations (To do this, the person who is holding open the advert must set the opposing corporation to good personal standing, and then select “based on standing – min standing = good”).
 
- Fleets can only contain a maximum of 10 pilots at any given time. To do this, the person who is holding open the advert must select “Application Requires Approval” in their fleet advert to control the number of pilots joining their fleet.
 
- Do not “Hide Details” on your advert. We want to see how many people are in the opposing fleets, to prevent accidental (or intentional) infractions. We know you’ll be in one of the four or five systems, flying frigates, with 10 or fewer people in your fleet. Hiding details on your advert doesn’t really prevent anyone from gathering intel on your fleet. It just makes it look like you are up to something nefarious.
 
- All other RvB Rules apply.
 
- All recorded Frigatus Weekend FC sessions on the weekend of 25th - 27th April will receive a bonus of 500LP as long as Frigatus is in the title and your fleet scored kills.
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
As it was mentioned earlier, this will be a FREE FOR ALL weekend, meaning members of your own corp, as well as the opposing corp will shoot you on sight. Unless you are fleeted with a pilot(s), they are fair game to you, and vice versa.
 
This weekend theme is a great opportunity for those of you testing out your Frigate solo skills, because everyone will be Frigates, and you’ll have to face, at most, only 10 other pilots. It is also a great weekend for newer players to step up and FC, and all you bitter vets to actually run a fleet again! You only have to manage a fleet of 10, and you’ll only be facing frigates with similar numbers.
 
Given we currently have the Free Frigate Summer ongoing, this Frigatus will be T1 frigates only.

Thought about that, but with Free Frig Summer launching today, I do not want to burn people out on Frigates too fast too soon.

You have my kestrel in your fleet Jiny!

Speaking of which... I have a dream... A fleet of 10 of my favorite light missile kestrels roaming on a frigatus weekend. So train up those light missile skills. I want 10 in fleet, I'll throw in the fitted ships. Let's teach those turrets tools what frigatus is all about!

This is the best of the events IMHO. Newbies - this is your best weekend to give fcing a go. Free frigs from poinin. No risk if you all die. Who cares. Get a new ship for free. You even get LP for fcing.

Would you please train minmitar frigate? A burst which is more cap stable works better.

In fact? We tend to lag logo so going with logi that does not require a cap buddy makes life easier.

I don't know what lag logo means - please could you explain, as I am [obviously] a massive n00b that is trying to learn about the game.

 

Would you also exaplain a little more about the additional cap stability of the Burst - I was under the impression that the Bantam, like the Burst, was cap independent... it says as much on the Eve Uni website... and my Bantam fit, which I have prepared as I hope to be able to fly Logi as much as possible (this is the area of the game I wish to learn and progress in the most) appears to be Cap Stable at 38%. Does the extra 10Gj of the Burst make a big difference?

 

I'd really appreciate any advice you can provide.

I think he meant to say "We tend to lack Logi" And so being cap stable yourself would be beneficial. 

 

As to the Burst v Bantam I can see the burst being quicker.. which is always handy for a logi ship which is usually chased a great deal.. apart from that I would assume both fits to have a small cap booster right? So cap shouldnt be a problem! Hopefully! =) This however is a topic for a different thread! I may start one ;)

Oh... that makes more sense lol!

 

I can't understand why you would lack for Logi... it seems to me that even small-gangs [10 man Frigate Fleets e.g.] would benefit from the addition of some element of Logistics support?

Oh yeah for sure! Logi frigs are a huge benefit when flown well in a small gang. The problem is that they have never been massively popular in every day little roams unfortunately as they make small groups of high resist frigs so much more powerful! Il try and find a vid you may find interesting from the perspective of a logi frig pilot in small gang PVP. 

 

On second thought.. im going to post this vid in a different section to stop this one getting messed up! Make sure you find it in the clutter!

Thanks, that [vid] would be great :)

 

Are you saying that Logi isn't popular because it can make fleets more powerful? I'm struggling with that, if I'm honest!

 

Are Skills / Shields also unpopular then? ;-)

 

Anyway... I guess I can always hope there might be a Fleet out there during Frigatus that is feeling a bit under-powered and would appreciate some Logi support... if not, perhaps I'll have to try and create one :)

I posted the vid in the media section. Check it out!. Nah its more due to people preferring to make stuff explode rather than make stuff stay alive. Also its *IMO* much harder to fly logistics ships well. In RvB its doubly hard due to the small numbers and those pilots getting shot first due to the fact if they are ignored then it can swing battles. People can only stomach so much getting premiered every fight when you are the sole logi ships. 

 

Yeah man! Promoting new logi pilots and using them more is always a fantastic thing. The frigs are such a great way to practice for the larger cruiser and T2 variants.

Reminder that this weekend is the almighty, awesome, FRIGATUS weekend! Dust off those T1 frigates, get your FC caps on and make the best of this weekend!!!

 

I'd appreciate a reminder mail going out at around 23.00 EVE - I may not be back from being Outside.

I forgot to post this earlier but I wanted to say that this past frigatus I think was one of the best that've gone off in a while. Every time I was on, there were multiple 3-4 man fleets instead of the single 10-man fleet that kept happening in earlier events. Just want to give a shoutout to Shen, Xantcha, and Jiny for being a big part of keeping things on the level.
