Fweddit "test of faith" event -- Lowsec T1 frigate battle open to all

The motivations behind this have already been posted to the RP forums, but this is not a RP-only event. Everyone is invited, and Rifterlings will be providing pre-fitted frigates to all our allies! Here's what it's about:

For RP reasons, Fweddit (and their alliance) have been challenged to prove their brag rights. This will be done by capturing a series of Novice FW complexes, as specified by me (read: only T1/faction frigates can enter). You are welcome to show up to either help us defend the complexes, help the Amarr eradicate the defenders, or to just enjoy the chaos and mayhem by shooting everything in sight.

If you do decide to join in (as yourself, your corp, or whatever), please post your intent either here or in the RP thread. It would be great to be able to gauge how many participants there will be, and prepare accordingly.

Place: Essin Constellation - Hofjalgund, Eszur, Gebuladi, Frerstorn, Ontorn, Ebolfer, Sirekur
Time: 06/13, at 03:00 ET (Eve Time). This is set in US Timezone: 11 PM EST (on Monday night).
Chat channel: EssinEvent

The event is expected to last an hour or two, and will include some surprises from Rifterlings (and I'm sure from Fweddit, as well). Depending on how it goes, there may also be an explosive finale.


More non-critical details:

For those not in the know, here's how capturing FW complexes works: The complexes have an acceleration gate entrance which only allows certain classes of ship through (T1/faction frigates for the Novice complexes). Inside, there is a capture beacon which appears on the overview as a circular crosshair-like thing. It has a timer associated with it, showing how much longer it has to be held by its would-be captors. For Novice plexes, it has to be held for 10 minutes. "Holding" a complex means having only one side of the militia present within 30 km of the capture beacon. The time one side holds the complex counts against the other side's timer (if the Amarr hold a plex for 5 minutes and leave, the Minmatar have to spend 15 minutes capturing it instead of 10).

Plex pro tips:

  • You cannot be forced to fight on the acceleration gate at the entrance. Simply mash its "activate" button as you land, and nothing will be able to stop you from entering. This is important as there are bound to be non-frigate interloper forces hoping to get easy kills.
  • Both the inside and outside of complexes counts as "deadspace". This means that warping to any spot other than the acceleration gate is impossible (you will just be drawn to it no matter where you warp), and 150+km on-grid warping doesn't work.
  • Use a 10,000,000 km d-scan to see what's inside a plex from the acceleration gate, and vice versa.
  • Defenders (those already inside a plex) have a big advantage since they know exactly where attackers will warp in to. Keep that in mind.


I will post more details as necessary. Hope to see you there!

For those who TL;DR'd the link to the RP forums...

I had this to say, while Mr. Turing was reported to have said something similar. In the meantime, most of EPA felt like this, and #GLITTERFLEET doesn't think the Matari can scrape up a fleet at all (understandable).

Come be bad. I wonder if all the Russian Minmatar farmers will show up...just tell them there are plexes.
Drunk tank, best tank.

Surely you're not taking my in-character outrage seriously? C'mon, dude.

As for a fleet, don't worry about it. Just be ready for pew pew.
