.

From the 1st of September 2020 RvB will be placed in maintenance mode.

.

What does this mean?

.

* Applications to RvB will be queued pending a formal relaunch and the move to our new home (safe from Triglavian invasion)

* Top station in Josameto will be the temp pivot for events and getting fights & a quick 1v1 – events will still be scheduled

* Efforts of the current command team will be primarily directed towards the re-launch

* Pilots leaving RvB at this time will not be able to return straight away.

.

Why are we doing this?

.

* After two years of a low-sec hiatus, the ‘eternal war’ needs a proper reboot. Our focus needs to be on this fresh start.

* The Triglavian invasion of Otela and these new game mechanics force us to rethink our location and modus opeandi.

* RvB’s online presence is currently a mess – with broken links and a dead forum. We need time to develop a new website and forum¬†

.

How you can help

.

* RvB is establishing a ‘Phoenix Relaunch Fund’. We are seeking 500 billion ISK to support actvity after the move. This sounds like a lot but a busy RvB will chew through this very quickly – and we all want a busy RvB. Please send donations to either corp and let us know – contributors will be listed on our website.

* We will be having a truly massive FFA to mark the formal relaunch of RvB in our new home – a ‘Trillion Isk Meltdown’. Gifts of fitted ships of all classes urgently needed – contract ships in the first instance to the character Eye Witness News @ Jita 4-4.

* We will be holding weekly meetings on Discord seeking help with various jobs that need doing. Please attend and help us when you can – we primarily need help with recruitment – publicity – and funding.

RvB Flight Academy

.

RvB will be launching an all new flight academy. This is part of a strategic direction which will see us:

(a) Based in a rookie system (we have exclsuive agreement from CCP to do this) – exact location tbc soon

(b) Becoming more friendly to players new to Eve and/or PvP

(c) Queueing applications until we have a viable intake

(d) Running classes and fleets specifically for new players

.

When is the formal relaunch?

.

We are currently aiming to relaunch in December 2020 – this date may (and probably will) change however.

.
When are we moving?

.

We will be moving before the formal relaunch – directional co-ordinates will be available shortly.

We will retain a clear and relatively short route to Jita.
