Know Your Enemy - Attack Cruisers

Combat Cruisers may top the chart in terms of raw strength, but Attack Cruisers are the masters of speed and damage application. These ships offer greater mobility than any other cruiser, with bonuses to range or tracking giving them a more flexible engagement envelope than their slower counterparts.

If Sigmund Freud played Eve, he would definitely have flown an Attack Cruiser.

While some Attack Cruisers (particularly the Thorax) make excellent brawlers, the main strength of this class is in kiting. The combination of flexible range and great mobility allows Attack Cruiser pilots to dictate the terms of an engagement on the fly, and makes them particularly dangerous to any smaller ships which might attempt to pin them down.

Tusker Frigate FFA 3

Following the success of our first two events, I'm happy to announce that the third Tusker Frigate FFA will be taking place on Saturday, 4th May from 18:00 to 24:00 Evetime.*

The rules for the event remain the same as Round #2, but we will be mixing things up with more "mini-events" occurring throughout the evening. The location for the event will be revealed 96 hours before the event starts.

A multitude of prizes will once again be available, ranging from Tech 1 Frigates to Faction Battleships, as well as a few oddballs thrown in there for good measure. As usual, the best prizes will only be reserved for younger characters (less than 1 year old).

You can find more information in our announcement thread - I hope to see you there!

In other news, RL has done a fairly serious number on both my Eve time and blogging time over the last month, and I expect that to continue for probably another month before I'm fully active again. For those of you waiting for the rest of the Retribution KYE articles, I apologise - I'll try to get them out as soon as I can, but can't make any promises.

In the meantime, I hear there's an election on?

*Updated from the 11th in order to not clash with the round 3 of the Syndicate Competitive League.
