#162937 Story Time

Posted by Wiiggls on 05 November 2016 - 06:37 PM

Hopefully we can share some interesting stories to each other!


This is one of my earliest memories from when I joined RvB back in 2011. 


My memory is not 100% but I will do my best! This was when we were stationed in Hagaken/Autaris respectively and I had decided that I wanted to try out the mighty autocannon Ferox!! (Pre hybrid damage bonus). As my time in RvB had been very brief I blindly jumped into a fleet with no form of voice communication. Typing would have to do.


The fleet commander in this fleet was a one Nidodog, someone who seemed to have an air of confidence that was infectious. He had spotted a lone Myrm bouncing about the Hagaken belts.. the sheer audacity!


With my limited knowledge and hunger to blow something up I volunteered to be bait in my Ferox of doom, while the other fleet members mustered a duo of Drakes a Caracal and Duck Butler in a Rifter. Easily enough to down a lone Myrm.


We engaged and things looked super positive with the myrms shields melting down to about 40%.. and then stopping. Completely. Heat was called for but by this time the pesky blues bad brought another two BC's in with a quad of cruisers and my Ferox went down. 




So much bait


I had never even realised Myrms could be passive shield tanked! 

We eventually got him though..

#156438 RvB Ceases Formal Operations

Posted by Wiiggls on 29 October 2015 - 07:12 PM

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!

#155896 My first two PvP encounters

Posted by Wiiggls on 16 October 2015 - 08:36 AM

Keep having fun mate. If you have not already.. make yourself familiar with all the names of the T1 frigs and what they specialise in. 

On a side note.. the rifter WAS an amazing ship. Not so much anymore despite how badass it looks. Try a slasher =) Or on the flip side, if you have okay rocket skills, try a Breacher! =) Keep these write ups going mate they are a great way to evaluate your pro's and cons of your decision making. Also lots of very skilled people will read up like Hormone1971 and give you good tips hints and advice =)

I personally prefer to let my computers speakers fly free with the profanities of all.. and then watch the looks on the faces of passers by when mangala calls everyone a c**t, then calmly say when they meet my eyes.. 


"Hes talking to you".


Share the love man.. share the love.

#148792 Logi Frig Small Gang PVP!

Posted by Wiiggls on 17 April 2015 - 02:36 PM



I thought this vid was fantastic and really highlights the strength of the t1 logi frig when paired with high resist DPS ships. 


Please keep in consideration that these fleets have links... 


Cool as heck tho!

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 ;)

#147708 Tell me about your first FCing experience

Posted by Wiiggls on 27 March 2015 - 03:29 PM

Bit of background to make things more interesting. I was lucky enough back in 2009 to join a really cool bunch of guys in a corp called Wattos Junkyard. At the time I had been playing for a year and a half but 100% PVE. That all changed when I got into the Junkyard. As the corp started to swell we split into 2 different corps, the original being a training ground for new recruits and a place for PVE to continue. The Junkyard Dogs ended up being our PVP corp and we had great success as pirates and mercs.


 We had one super FC, Cam Fleury who really knew his stuff and no one really felt the need to try and step up. After 2 years of living in various lowsec, from Ami to Raravath I learnt a hell of a lot about Solo and small gang pvp and all the while learning how to FC from just listening. We all knew each other very well, what ships we could fly and who was best at what. We eventually moved out to a new highsec system called Halmeh which was cut off and surrounded by lowsec. 

1. What made you step up and try?


 While in Halmeh, we had a rival corp (who doesn't!?) called Corax and they were a pain in the ass as they dropped carriers on most of our fights. Cam was offline and we could see they had formed a Fleet and were on the way to our system. We fleeted up and soon we had 6 RR BS, 2 HICs and a Ceptor. We had lost eyes on their fleet but knew from their corp list they had about 20 people online. We were sitting on the gate talking shit on coms to each other with no real clue who was going to FC. We couldn't jump them as they would get Triage so we just waited. 

 Gate flash, and I just started calling. I didn't really know why but I was talking at the time so it felt right. We still didn't know how many they had so it was all in. Reps went across from all BS to one of our geddons taking fire who we kept up easily. It probably only lasted about 1 min but it felt like a lifetime. Turns out they only had 4 BS, 1 BC and a cruiser...and pretty badly fit! So yea we wiped them. Woops! 




What did it feel like?


You know what? I actually apologised as soon as we finished for stepping up only to be shot down by my corpies who said I had actually done a great job. It was empowering. I knew any one of us could have done exactly the same thing and it just takes that one time to say.. "Hey, I can do this". Also I got the shakes so bad we had to go for a 20 min bio after. I was still pretty young then but it only took a bit of time learning from a good FC to make me into one too. 

3. What made you initially reluctant to give it a go?


 Honestly it was the feeling of "Oh god, I don't want people to compare me to Cam! Hes a great FC and what if I mess up?!" I think a lot of people think similar thoughts. In reality, its totally the opposite. Everyone is pumped that you stepped up, be it good or bad. Those people who do put you down don't deserve your time of day. Constructive feedback is great. 

4. What advice can you give to someone reluctant to make the first step and give it a go? 


 You will welp fleets learning. God knows I have welped a plethora of fleets. But from doing that you learn. In RvB u will have some FC's that are naturally better than others. If you find one you particularly like, try remembering the way they manage the fleet. The little things like light humour can really boost the moral and confidence of your spaceship mates. Most of all... Don't take it super serisouly. Its a game. Try to enjoy it ;)

#146235 [Podding Event - 28 thru 30 March] "To make an Omelet...

Posted by Wiiggls on 05 March 2015 - 04:31 PM

What, if any, do you think the main statistical changes will be for this weekend, from a completely hypothetical point of view (being the stats man)? 


Personally I would expect to see a pretty large increase in the ISK destroyed for the weekend but with a lower number of active personnel. 


As per your request, I think a good help would be to send a message out to the main FC's of all timezones (Hopefully covering as much as possible) requesting they place in the fleet advert a reminder of the introduction of podding. This will hopefully target all the people who miss the corp mails/forums/general talk. Maybe ask if they could try and remember to give a quick verbal reminder over voice.

Cheers for the overview Mang. Sifting through 70+ different views and trying to differentiate the bads to the not so bads was a daunting prospect indeed!

Thank you for all you have done Del, as im sure most of what you have done was a pretty thankless job.

Know we appreciate everything.

Your not just a great eve player and leader, your a credit to nice people.

Good guy Del. Seems not quite enough, but nothing but truth.
