This Event will run until downtime December 31, 2016.


The MANY ways to win:

#2 Kill as many individual players in Highsec with a character created on or after the 15th of November 2016 as an Alpha Clone.

#9 Do the most damage while killing Porpoises. Total damage done towards all Porpoise kills is the winner. Porpoise ofcourse need to be destroyed.


Rules, yes, we have rules:

1. Make sure you do NOT kill players in the official newbie systems, or risk a permaban!
2. Make sure you have setup your API on Zkillboard for validation!
3. Kills must be different players.
4. If your Alpha Clone has the same amount of kills as another Alpha Clone, the youngest character will win.
5. If your Omega Clone has the same amount of kills as another Omega Clone, prizes will be shared.
6. If you kill with multiple characters (Omega Clones only!) pick one of your characters to enter the Event (obviously the one with the most kills Blink )
7. Once the competition is over, you count your total of individual kills, mark your highest value kill and mail this including a link to your killboard to Mildron Klinker. Do this before downtime January 10, 2017! Please include the contest number(s) for which you are eligible, and include the prize order you would prefer most in case of multiple wins.
8. Winners will be announced on the 15th of January.
9. The New Order and all of New Eden are eligible for this contest! Pilots do not need to be in the CODE. Alliance to win!

#1 is asking to cop a ban, just saying. CCP doesn't have many lines, but ******* with their real-world bottom line in meaningful ways is one of the best ways to get them to act.
#6 - 2016-11-15 06:50:15 UTC
Mildron. I love this idea.

Working on a prize to sponsor.

Should be able to provide a (small) ten figure sum for the prize pool; might be in ISK, might be in consumables (blasters etc).

Donating the following prizes; distribute as you see fit among the various categories (edit: would love lots of it to go to players new to ganking, however).



One each of the following pirate faction battleship blueprints - Vindicator, Machariel, Rattlesnake, Bhaalgorn, Nightmare; located in Jita

1 billion ISK

2000 Light Neutron Blaster II; located in Dodixie

So there's another ~3200m in prizes to add in. Let's make this huge.

Any thought of a prize for the youngest character to score a 1b pod (based upon character age at the time of the podkill)?

Wow, CODE makes an event to kill especially noobs in HS. That will certainly help Eve getting more players!
So CODE is so cheap that they can't kill seasoned player any more but targets players that can't shoot back and can't afford the losses?

Why don't you not just rename to GrEVE and make destroying the Eve playerbase your main objective? At least it would be more honest then to call this an event!

Sorry, but I can't express how angry I am about this intentional destroying the fun of noobs and demoralizing them without risking permaban! Could you even think about one step further then your killboard filled with things that can't shoot back? Maybe trying to keep this game alive instead killing it? Or thinking that it is more fun to shoot seasoned players instead of collecting noob scalps?

Lo, and there came a time when the Shae did post the event in the GD and the lord said, let the tears flow; and flow they did.

Thanks Geronimo.


Awesome event. Content for newbros and old. Everyone playing together.

It seems that someone didn't get the memo.

CCP's own research indicates that under the soon-to-be-phased-out trial account system, new players that lose a ship to other players are MORE likely to become paying subscribers that players that do not lose a ship to another player.

I've mentored several newbs whose first interaction with CODE. is to be a client of our ganking services. A few minutes later and they realise that they too can gank.

I often give them a couple million ISK and a gank Atron fit, tell them to go and shoot Ventures, and when they have made ten attempts, contact me again and I'll give them 50 million ISK. Really lets them see that they - a 700k SP newb with little knowledge of game mechanics - can actually influence the game world without having to level up to 100 first.

So you guys finally decided to verify CCPs "those who ganked stays longer in the game" given in the last FanFest?

Looking forward to results!

GOOD LUCK!


Quoted the parts where it is a game of chance. Just because of EULA reasons.

Despite that - how are you going to check the Apha/Omega status of a participating account?
I could create a new char on my Omega Account and call it an Alpha. Your rules don't ask for any kind of proof.

Happy hunting.

That's totally okay, could you tell me how many will do this and not just bolster their killboard especially if it is a contest? It's not the killing but robbing the noobs of resources they desperately need. If you kill him, tell him what he made wrong and give him some millions, I'm the last to object.......if

Nice post. Would you like to put ALL your money in a skiff and go mining in it in NPC Null? You or I can deal with the losses, noobs can't. That's the difference!

Easily the quickest route I've ever seen to driving new players away from Eve. Nothing is going to make a new player say 'well this is stupid' quicker than being repeatedly killed, and not understanding how he died, or why. This is taking things way too far, and I seriously hope CCP takes a firm stance against this all out war on brand new players.
