#164372 Tldr votes for snakes or slaves? Implant ideas for solo frigate fighting in R...

Posted by CpHarding on 16 June 2017 - 01:56 PM

The way I look at it,

halos are only good for frigates/ being more than 1 ship size lower than your opponent.

Crystal's are only good if shield tanking

Asks / slaves are only good if armor tanking

Snakes, always help, allow you to kite better, close better when scammed, escape better, get early tackle better.

But. RvB is not the place to play with HG, they often can make a ship OP if flown right, and then people will just refuse to fight you, or bring superior numbers / ships, knowing you are permanently mounted in HG.

If you want fun, fair fights in RvB, mids make your ship better, but not the point an empty clone pilot doesn't stand a chance if they are good.

In Low / WT, use whatever you can afford to lose!

#161611 EvE Moving to F2P... Why this could be great for the game and great for RvB

Posted by CpHarding on 01 September 2016 - 08:58 AM

Some of these things were already under discussion in command chats. We have some plans, but any ideas please post them here.

Kicking in actives is unlikely to happen despite most of us thinking it's a good idea, due to the bad interface for Corp management, which means alot of manual labor to kick people

Max train is what, ~2100sp/hr, so killing an npc and getting 10k is another ~20% sp /day which can be applied anywhere on the skill tree.... Looks like I know how to get my leadership skills up!

#159376 Blue POS is up...

Posted by CpHarding on 21 April 2016 - 08:29 AM

We had 3 rounds of cruiser fights last night's (as scheduled) and it was reds who started dropping numbers before blues.

Pos was fun, although reds didn't seem to understand we wouldn't be repping the pos if they didn't keep shooting it. You can't get an easy km off something we have been tasked to defend. Seemed their attitude to it was to moan when they couldn't just f1 with no other tactics.

Vision, red pos came out at about 7am.... Most of our lot were at work! 1am is early enough if people are motivated you can stay up.

I do think if this is done again in future, it should be done with smalls, at least until we are back on our feet with numbers. Also blue pos should be in blue system, even if it can't be on the hq.

It has generated some good fights, and a bit of variety in content never hurt anyone.

Might be time for the tower to be pulled now though, blues have proved we can rep and defend successfully, only 2 reds were even in system for the timer expiring. We had several EU's stick around, and lots of disappointment that reds didn't even show

#158713 Otela/ Liekuri to Oisio/Oshaima

Posted by CpHarding on 14 March 2016 - 06:46 PM

We are where we are.

Time to build on what we have.

And people like vision, jasper, nitro, miri Charles and more are why RvB is still a thing despite everything that happened, we may not have the numbers we once had, but we are a force to be scared off, especially when "bezerker" nitro is FC :P. RvB is still alive, still fighting the good fight, and still having fun. Red and Blue combined have more kills than most other alliances in Eve, even Goons.

I'm glad you're red.... Nothing annoys me more than music on comms (well except people kicking kittens).

Think you'll be looking to create a virtual audio device, would Google, but all my bandwidth is currently being used to redownload eve

#158549 Micro jump drive generators, hics, dictors, bombs, probes!

Posted by CpHarding on 05 March 2016 - 12:26 AM

Tuesday the 15th March the training Tuesday will be a bit of fun!

You know those low and null sec mechanics you've been wanting to try? I'll find us a wormhole near RvB space and we can go experiment with t2 dessies and hics (and anything else you want to try) be aware, clean clones are recommended, and we may get a fight (depending on who the wormhole opens to)

Please grab and setup ships before hand, your have 13 days to get stuff shipped down :)

Bring: probers, dictors, hics, bombers, command dessies, or just general cruiser down, to give people ships to jump!

Form up will be 20:00, aiming to leave 20:15.
There is almost always a hole within 2 jumps, so we don't have to worry about travelling (unless the hole closes on us)

#158509 Vision's most marvellous gate camps

Posted by CpHarding on 03 March 2016 - 05:02 PM

Short of having triage carriers + faction BS fleet / super fleet, there is always the chance to get hot dropped.

Armor fleet (prophecy / armor hac / armor hic) with boosts and fast tackle (punishers / retribution / ceptors) with guardians, neut legions/ curse + Falcon or two for support could work, (need neuts for any mauraders / logi that comes through)

If we just plan on camping a gate, no reason not to go armor,

#158236 Logistic Wednesday! 10/02/16

Posted by CpHarding on 04 February 2016 - 09:59 PM

Wednesday the 10th @20:00 will be Logi Wed!


What is it?:


Its a free for all.... with a difference 


T1 cruisers, but if you want (hopefully we will have a good handful of people) There will be a logi wing to the fleet.


If you are in a logi ship (for this week) you can't be shot!, you will be repping anyone that broadcasts.


This gives logi practice at repping multiple targets, with multiple broadcasts in a semi - busy environment.


We can introduce evading ewar and damage into future events.


My End goal is to have very RvB Pilot logi-capable with at least one T1 shield and T1 armor logi ship ready to go :)


so come along - bring logi if you want, or have a supply of T1 cruisers, shield or armor, doesn't matter - hoping we have logi of both
