Where: Jovainnon, Verge Vendor
What: Frigate Free-For-All
Why: Awesome prizes!
We (The Tuskers) recently received a sizeable donation from a former member who will be leaving the game. His only request was that we use the money to help get more new players into PVP, and we'd like to kick that off by hosting a frigate FFA open to the entire Eve community.
This will be a newbie-friendly event, with a large number of prizes up for grabs. While anyone at all can take part, the biggest prizes will be saved for those players who're less than 12 months old.
We're opening this event up to anyone who'd like to take part - just come to Jov and join the party.
RULES (may be subject to change)
- No podding
- No ECM (including drones)
- No cloaks
- No boosting alts
- Limited to T1 Frigates from 20:00 to 22:00, after that any frigates can be used.
- Reshipping is allowed (and encouraged - bring plenty of ships!)
- Warping off is allowed (but no warping to gates/stations/safe spots unless you're reshipping or leaving the event - this makes it more fun, and avoids people dying to gate/station guns if they've gone flashy).
Anyone not following these rules won't receive any prizes, and will instead receive our best "I'm not angry, I'm just disappointed" expressions (also we might gank you).
Exact prizes are their criteria are still to be announced, but I expect there to be plenty of them!
You can find the full details here. If you'd like more information, drop into The Tuskers Public Channel in game.
Elite PVP Warning: Obviously this is a publicly announced event, and there will probably be some 'creative' types who are bad at frigates/life and decide to turn up in something else in the hopes of glorious t1 frigate killmails. We at the Tuskers recognise that frigate PVP is the only true form of PVP for the discerning internet battle warrior, and the use of smartbombing BS and sniper 'nados against our intrepid newbies represents dishonour of the most extreme variety.
We recommend making use of minor and medium plexes to avoid such dishonourable combat, and should such elite participants happen to show up you're welcome to respond to them as you please - blob them, ignore them, deploy glorious Falcon alt ECM and so forth. Because you know, screw those guys!
PS Don't worry Fweddit I still love you
