#167072 Hard Liquor #8: Home Delivery

Posted by Mangala Solaris on 23 August 2018 - 08:10 AM in Events and Contests

Anyone who has flown with me over the past 7 years or so, will have at some time or another heard me do a lot of stupid shit. Usually this results in someone dying or getting shouted at by me. However the stupidest stuff I do is lose my ship then go shopping in the arse end of some misbegotten region like Great Wildlands, Fountain, Stain, and Syndicate and end up buying some trash level ship just to keep on going.
 
Now you may remember Syndicate is where we fought a brief scrap with the CAS guys and upon being popped I hit the local contract market and bought myself a Raptor and a Rattlesnake. I want to use that Rattler, so we need to get it back to the corner of high sec RvB lives in, so this weekend, we are doing just that. You're going to fly cruisers and down, I'm not. And we're going to take my ship and I home via as much as low security space as we can.

#167034 Hard Liquor #7: FC’s Birthday

Posted by Mangala Solaris on 14 August 2018 - 09:13 AM in Events and Contests

Bloody good fleet Saturday guys, really enjoyable.  Good number of kills, couple of decent scraps, and Nik losing a cap (that we all pretty much failed to whore on). Nice spot by lasse of that wonderful tengu - that gave both loot and drama - and a wander into the depths of syndicate for a brief rumble with CAS. 10/10 would fly with you all again.

 

Nik throw prizes of your choice at:

 

Lasse Farnsworth - Finder of Tengus

Douglas Aurelius - Dramallama

Jimarr Deninard - Logibro

Metal Jack - Logibro

Abysus - Logibro

Paul869 - Snagged a few top damages

Spinnock Durav - Adorable bro

 

 

Oji and Muon, I promised you Damavik each, check your contracts :D




#167010 Hard Liquor #7: FC’s Birthday

Posted by Mangala Solaris on 09 August 2018 - 04:58 PM in Events and Contests

After a short hiatus last weekend, in which I worked late and you guys watched RvB in the Alliance Tournament right? RIGHT? We’re back on plan this weekend, and since its my RL birthday Monday I want to have a bloody good night with my fellow spaceship nerds, so we’ll be roaming about in one of my favourite hulls, the Enyo! Originally was thinking shield, but we’ve done that a lot the past few roams, so Armour it is.  

 

Bring plenty of booze as I will be!

#166898 Hard Liquor #5: Seven Years A ...

#166886 RvB Presents: Hard Liquor #4 - The Warriors

Posted by Mangala Solaris on 14 July 2018 - 11:14 PM in Events and Contests

So the second go, Mangala lead, attempt this went pretty well, random scuffle in low early on, stuff died, not us - well Zen... - then we headed into null and got cynabal response fleeted, but a few kills there, before a few losses.

 

Reshipped, got surprised 200man fleeted by bloody darkness!  No losses just brown trousers while we were trying to decide whether to help snuff drop some galmil caps or roam BR. Did the latter, killed a few things, moved onto tiredly crash a gate camp that was being streamed - again with a backup cyno... No real dice there, but hey ho, nice quiet end to the event.




#166884 Hard Liquor #5: Seven Years A ...

Posted by Mangala Solaris on 14 July 2018 - 03:58 PM in Events and Contests

Roam, event, drunken blunder across New Eden, hideous feed, series of un-explainable victories.

 

Call it what you will, RvB Ganked or Ganked turns SEVEN years old on the 22nd July, and while Ganked still runs under the aegis of the good people over at Spectrefleet, I cannot very well ignore the birthday of the event that gave the server a bloody terrible drunken FC along with cementing RvB as a content provider for the wider EVE community.

 

The first RvB Ganked was a two parter, Rifters - FC'd by Manic Miner/Tim Pest and kitchen sink, FC'd by me. Wasn't too bad to be honest, broke even on the fight that really got me hooked on the drug that is slosh ops. You can read selections from Ganked's story over the years following 22nd July 2011 on my blog, or check out the many many campaigns over on the Ganked killboard. Hell you can join a Ganked event every week just by being a part of the Spectre community, or come fly with me on Hard Liquor of course!

 

I was thinking as HL #5 is being held close to Ganked's 7th, that we would reprise the original setup, a 2 part roam of rifters then kitchen sink, however I remembered that CCP has been kindly giving us ships for major birthdays in EVE, and so HL #5 will fly the Praxis & Gnosis. We will maybe lose them too...

 

Fits will follow, so keep an eye on the mailing list Hard Liquor, the RvB forums and discord, and my blog. I'll see you all there next Saturday!

#166841 RvB Presents: Hard Liquor #4 - The Warriors

Posted by Mangala Solaris on 08 July 2018 - 07:42 PM in Events and Contests

11! That's around when we stopped, Daneel stepped up to FC and went down to T1 hulls, got some nice action for the size and distance we covered :D

 

Yeah from checking everything net went down after I left for work at 6am yesterday, so my area was without it for ages, luckily it doesnt happen very often, but still not impressed. At least I could watch the england game at work (I dont run a TV so would usually watch sport online!). 

 

Glad the thing went ahead however changed, awesome work Daneel!




#166834 RvB Presents: Hard Liquor #4 - The Warriors

Posted by Mangala Solaris on 08 July 2018 - 07:47 AM in Events and Contests

Due to internet outage, official roam moved to 14th July.

Git net back around 11pm, but meh by that point. Anyway, next weekend.

Hands off my teapot

Can set your forum title yourself iirc ;)

#166778 RvB Presents: Hard Liquor #4 - The Warriors

Posted by Mangala Solaris on 04 July 2018 - 12:11 PM in Events and Contests

Hard Liquor now has a few roams under its belt, some good, some less than good. As an FC once I find myself once again learning what works and what doesn’t in the modern EVE Online, however the biggest change to overcome is knowing what works for a smaller fleet than I am used to leading. That change is oh so hard, and probably lead to a few un-necessary deaths in Providence (OF ALL PLACES) last weekend.

Anyway, the roam itself was good fun, fair few explosions, some good tussles with locals in Providence and Curse/Scalding Pass, and the camaraderie of my fellow pilots adding icing to the cake. Nikolai had provided some goodies too, many folks now have them on their contracts including Nitro Oxide, Bixulu, Beejay, Green, Daneel, Nicose, and Sid.

On to the fun stuff, remember that poll I put out? Well apparently you all want this weekly, so here we go. I’m giving you what you wanted!

#166715 RvB Presents: Hard Liquor #3 - Faster Pussycat KILL KILL

Posted by Mangala Solaris on 27 June 2018 - 09:44 AM in Events and Contests

Well, what can I say about Hard Liquor #2, started quiet while we chased around in low sec in our ships, however all got very interesting when someone tried to play with us in their Phoenix. A few of us popped to keep him occupied, but fleet bro's got us some support and him and his friends went down. Never know what you're gonna get on our roams really!
 
That brings us on to Hard Liquor #3! This week I'm feeling the need, the need for speed!

No real definition of what I want beyond inties. Although crows would be nice, so I can feel all Tom Cruise and shit.  We will be heading out to all points null, so bring lots of time. We're going hunting!



#166695 I like what you've done with the place

Posted by Mangala Solaris on 21 June 2018 - 08:28 PM in Introductions and Farewells

Oh wow, this really is a blast from the past!.

 

Yes, RvB is still here after pushing 9 years of this one, and the hard work of many people over those years. Should re-up and give us a whirl ;)




#166654 RvB Presents: Hard Liquor #2 - Cheap Cialis Pills

Posted by Mangala Solaris on 16 June 2018 - 11:07 PM in Events and Contests

Lots of quiet with a handful of kills, dont use red dots when ccp have an event running to find busy systems...  HOWEVER we did get into some bother in OMS and a Phoenix came our way. Bit of a scuffle occured, lined up a cyno as ships popped, enemy support in the form of Shadow Cartel starts landing, then BOOM "friendly" snuff gang bridged in just before Haz ard cynoed in...  Phoenix died, shadow cartel died/left, snuff went away. 

 

Op success.

 

Trinneth won a prize for being Gnosis bait early on, Fab, Emen and Sid won prizes for some truly stellar logi work during the Phoenix fight.




#166581 RvB Presents: Hard Liquor #2 - Cheap Cialis Pills

What: Brawl with Free Ships. Followed by a small roam after.

 

Where: Leikuri (so I dont have to move things!)

 

What free ships: Republic Fleet Firetail's. 50 armour fit, 50 shield fit.

 

 

Very short notice event here guys, been desperate to do something fun and get myself back on the old FC/killmail "whorse" and why not this. Basically Red will brawl blue, both sides in ships ive provided. Once we've had our fill of killing one another, we'll wander about find other folks to kill.

 

Fridays my weekend so I'll be able to run a later version of this too assuming the first round doesnt explode all my Firetails!
