Quite a list of kills! I don't have a clear memory of most of them...I do remember the 7-8 caps that snuff wanted to drop on us though. Also surprised I got both my chars home without any loss. I found my ship btw... A great time and thanks to everyone who showed, and especially Zen, of course.
This was a great roam. Thanks to everyone who came out. Thanks especially to Steal Your Wallet for FCing and trying some new and innovative tactics for attracting fights. We should do Svipul roams more often! Oh, wait...
Ganking does have its uses. That said, ganking a harmless freighter, indy or miner is bad for the game on all sorts of levels. Sure, there's no rule against it in RvB, but seriously, don't you have anything better to do?
Well! KOTG was, I think, a rousing success! The new rules appeared to work well enough. A number of matches went to Venture tie breakers. The ultimate winner came down to the very last match, with Sigognac taking the title, defeating Roguearmadillo. The final standings were:
Sig - 6
Rogue - 5
Zen Tsai - 3
Abysus - 3
We learned that:
1) dual rep Incursus is tough
2) dual MASB Breacher is also tough
3) 8 drones on a Tristan is not enough
4) Ventures have 2 drones!
Thank you everyone for participating, especially with only a few day's warning. Even if you don't participate you can come and watch. You can learn quite a lot! If anyone has any suggestions for future events please put them below.
I don't think the Mittani believes a single thing he is saying. And I Want Isk isn't going to destroy the game because most players live in hisec. The nullsec people think it's all about them when it really isn't. You know what would be really interesting? Allowing players, through their behavior, to change the security status of a system.
CCP and their lackeys push with one hand, and with the other they pilfer your wallet. They, who fly around in invulnerable Polaris frigates, constantly push, cajole and browbeat pilots into what they call "PvP," while at the same time they provide "free money" to pilots that avoid PvP (through risk-free endeavors such as mining, manufacturing, station trading and running L4 missions in blinged-out Rattlesnakes). So in this backwards universe called "New Eden" CCP provides positive reinforcement to efforts they discourage, while penalizing efforts they encourage! It is obvious that such a foolish and senseless scheme could only be kept operational by mind boggling amounts of market manipulation, underhanded deals and blatant cheating, YES I SAID IT! CHEATING! by they who shall not be named because of fear of retribution (hint, it rhymes with "CCP"). So where am I going with this? Frankly I forgot by the second sentence. Oh yeah, I remember! RvB stands out like a shining beacon of truth by proudly rewarding PvP and not punishing it! We do with this in multiple ways! By giving out FREE SHIPS! By providing MEDALS! By reimbursing (some) losses! By singing congratulatory hymns! By positively reinforcing certain behaviors with small tasty treats!

It seems like they had spies (as if their fleet wasn't blobby enough already) as everyone who might have been FC got head shot. Just for fun I tried to get out of the bubble in my pod but unfortunately I landed next to BaconPizza in a Tayra (he's in PH now). He scrammed me but I was actually 30 km/s faster than him. I was out of the bubble and almost out of scram range when they finally got me http://blue.rvbeve.c...l&kll_id=887803.
