Flight of a Thousand Rifters II: A Player Event

On 2012.03.17 (March 17th, 2012) at precisely 19:00 GMT (game time) I will undock from:

EVENT LOCATION
Notoras II - Lai Dai Protection Service Assembly Plant


I will be sieging a station with Appropriate Language, my Moros dreadnought. It has been collecting dust for a good couple years and it is high time it dies of a fiery death explosion.
I want to give players a change to do some damage and win some prizes so I will be running a player event to destroy my dreadnought. There are a few rules to follow for you to be eligible for prizes. The top players with the most points gained with a frigate class ship will each win one of many prizes. The player leaving the final blow on my Moros or the final blow on my capsule will each receive a special prize.

Tier 1 Prizes: (Can be won only with a frigate class ship) list here -> https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=849334#post849334
Tier 2 Prizes: (Any ship qualifies) <-- soon to be link to prize list
  • Final blow on my Moros = 1,000x Rifters
  • Final blow on my capsule = 1x PLEX
  • Closest guess on Moros damage from station guns without going over = 100x Quafe Zero -> https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=849352#post849352

  • Rules:
    To receive any prizes or gain points you must follow these rules or you will be disqualified or receive a penalty multiplier against your total points.
  • Only frigate class hulls on my Moros kill mail will qualify for points.
  • Event time starts 30 minutes before I undock in the Moros and lasts 30 minutes after my capsule is destroyed.
  • Any contestant found to be in a ship other than a frigate class during event time will be disqualified from the points based prizes.
  • No capsule, shuttle or noob ship kill mail will be counted. This means it will not help you or hurt you. The only capsule kill mail I will look at is my own.
  • If any contestant’s corporation members are listed on a kill mail during event time is using a ship other than a frigate class then you will forfeit 50% of your base points.
  • Alternatively if any contestant’s alliance members are found on a kill mail during event time using a ship other than a frigate class then you will forfeit 25% of your base points. (NPC alliances do not count)
  • Damage done on the Moros kill mail is a players base points.
  • Kill board used to verify kills will be: eve-kill.net (all other kill boards will not be considered so please post kill mails there)
  • If you are on any kill mail with a frigate class hull counts as a 1x point multiplier. (members of your player made alliance/corporation do not count)
  • Example of above point system. -> https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=849315#post849315
  • In the event of a tie in points; the player listed higher on the kill mail will win.
  • There is no penalty for being on a kill mail with a capsule.

  • Environment setting:
  • The system location will NOT be announced until the day of the event. Sorry. Oops
  • I will be in siege mode from the start of the event until my death. This prevents me from being remote repaired and relying only on my personal tank. I will not dock or warp off.
  • I will go global (flashy red) so anyone can legally shoot me without the player taking a security hit or be shot by the station guns. (frigate friendly Big smile)
  • I will have all three guns fit and the siege module. So by simply looking at my ship you will know I do not have smart bombs fit.
  • I will be directly on top of a station so other players will not be able to activate smart bombs. Smart bombs do not work within 5km of station dock range. (keeping it a frigate friendly environment Big smile)
  • The system will be in low security space with an ongoing Incursion. (this means no normal cyno can be activated for capital ship shenanigans)
  • DO NOT FLY WHAT YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE!
  • Post all kill mails! Any kill mails not API verified on eve-kill.net or kill mails added 48 hours after my pod loss mail will not be considered in the prize decision.
  • All prizes will be contracted at Jita 4-4.

  • Tips:
  • Just because you’re in a frigate does not mean other players will not shoot you. Keep this in mind! Bring help/friends/mommy's hand bag or whatever you think will help you win the prizes.
  • Just because your main character can't make the event because they are busy sucking on a POS appendage hoping for a few drops of Technetium, does not mean you can't bring a starter character in a frigate to the event on the same account. Bring it!
  • DO NOT FLY WHAT YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE!
  • Join channel: FOATR to chat and discuss the event

  • ---

    With every kill mail there is always a story to be told. Some more glorious than others, some over a small disagreement or a major battle for territory. So for the next story...
    The question you have to ask yourself is; will you be reading about it, or will you be writing it?

    Example of point system:

    You are in a Taranis (frigate class ship). When my Moros dies, you have done 5,000 damage to it. You have 5,000 base points. During the point multiplier window (see above) you were on 7 kill mails (including my Moros) of players that were not in your player made alliance or corporation.
    Your new total points is: 5,000 x 7 = 35,000 points

    During the time frame of points you there was an alliance member of yours who was on a kill mail with a Tengu. Because of this you lose 25% of your points. But you had a few corporation members who were on some kill mails during the point window with same Maelstroms. You lose an additional 50% of your points, thus bringing the total penalty to 75%.

    Your final total points is: 25% of 35,000 = 8,750 points

    Attended the first one and even though I didn't win anything, it was the most fun I have had in a long time. Will be attending this one as well. Great job Marlona Sky!

    Why no destroyers this time?
