I Joined RvB with virtually no PvP experience,

Soon I would learn not just to fight, but the joy of winning by the skin of your teeth. And the drive to comeback after a close defeat.

Eventually I would learn to lead small fleets and teach Newbro's what I knew when I could.

 

Yet this was a mere slither of effort in comparison to the efforts of command over the years,

as well as FC's, and those generous in both ISK and knowledge. To all who contributed:

 

Thank you.

 

I cannot fathom the effort that has went into RvB entirely, but I am very grateful for the fun times.

I have been a member, on and off, for 3 of my 5 years in eve and I am saddened at the crossroads we find ourselves at. I am glad that others appear ready to take up the reins and continue, but we should not be blaming anyone but ourselves. Leadership has done an impossibly great job for so long with dwindling active membership. Hopefully those that step up, get our( the rank and file) support and continue this. If not, It was my pleasure to fly with and against every one of you past and present and hope to fly with you again soon

Thanks for the good times.

 

Whatever will happen you have the support of many players and probably the whole eve community.

For me, RvB was always a finest example of "sandbox gaming" mentality. You know, sov holders in null-sec, faction warfare combatants, mission runners, industrials, even miners - they all have goals and incentives included into core Eve game mechanics. To put it short, a lot of the capsuleers in Eve play the gameplay CCP made for them.

 

And just like wormhole dwellers invented their own "emergent gameplay", bent the rules, and did what was not intended by CCP, RvB did similar thing. RvB created "sandbox within sandbox" game, with its own rules, its own restrictions, its own incentives. Basically, RvB can be loosely considered as a separate game within the realm of Eve Online.

 

And that exact fact is what fascinated me during the years I spent in RvB.

 

If it's truly an end (although, it might be just a temporary leadership/membership crisis, who knows), then all I can say is "It was the happiest part of my Eve Online time! and, by the way, Thanks for All the Fish!!!"

Baba booey baba booey!!!

 

Wassup guys?  I hardly ever get a chance to play anymore but heard the news and had to come see what's going on.  I'm not losing hope that this will all work itself out and RvB continues, at least in some fashion, to provide tons of entertainment on Eve.  It's a purely selfish desire of course, because I still hope to come back and play Eve more regularly some day, and RvB was always the most fun I ever found in the game. 

 

So please work it out guys.  Pass the torch, or share it, or whatever works, but please keep it alive.  If that can't happen, so be it, but it would be sad.  Either way, allow me to express my appreciation for all of the hard and boring "behind the curtain" work that I know a few of you have put into RvB to make it a reality for all of these years.  I really, REALLY do appreciate it.  I've very much enjoyed just getting to "play" for once instead of shouldering the burden of management beyond FCing.  (Some of you might not remember me, but if I was still active, I would be on the top 5 list for FC time, at least on the current rewards board.)  FCing was usually a fun thing for me, not a burden like having to handle rules violations, paying bills, handing out medals, keeping up with wars, managing POCOs, keeping track of FC rewards, managing websites, calendars, etc. etc.  So again, much appreciation for the hard work you guys put into this.

 

If this can't be resolved, then I hope to see my favorite RvB pilots and FCs out there in the game in another context some day when I have more free time again.  I miss you guys.  I don't want to try to list you all because I know I'll leave someone out.

 

Good luck.  Good hunting.

Cheers to everyone who made my personal RvB experience such a great one. I only stroked the surface of anything coming close to command jobs and things that went on unseen.. however I know you all put in an absurd amount of your own time for other peoples fun. I had fun so thank you. I think you should all give yourself a serious pat on the back and make yourself a well earned cup of tea!

Ha ha internet dropped as I was writing:-(

Del that's the most ridiculous comment on this page! Of course things are gonna be slow after RvB ceases formal operations! Thx for that

We are trying to sort things out. The people who are usually active are sending mails about our future instead of pewing so what do u expect?

I already commented to Papa Del. He's had it rough too. How would you all feel if after spending years supporting a group, paying for the initial BLTs out of pocket (he did up until gained POCO s which was in the 3rd run of BLT (son of the return something)) and people just started giving you grief over a decision That wasn't even 100% yours?

Folks... We all need to let the bad emotions go for now if we wish to push forward. All of us, bitter exvets, bitter command, bitter newbies, bitter exvets masquerading as newbies, to make this work we need to let our anger go... Or at least only use it to move forward not yell at each other or complian.

So Del will do his best, bacon please do the same, as will I. We all need to focus on forward not the past to make a real go of this.

LOL, good thing Deldel has something like 600 alts and I'm pretty sure single person knows all of them. 

 

I'm really not sure what to do with Algis, near max skilled (sub cap anyway) for pvp thanks to RvB, and I haven't had the motivation to play in ages.
