(Amak Boma) #10

what if someone is ganked on the way,what about bumping machariels alla round


(Cassie Helio) #11

Sounds like it will be a fun race then!


(Amak Boma) #12

yes but you would not complete the courier if you get ganked. what about bumping alts to make only 1 winner?


(Cassie Helio) #13

Someone had better try to stop them then!


(Amak Boma) #14

why you cant get people in griffins to defend them,if you host event you shoulld get the security team. just anything to prevent cheating


(Cassie Helio) #15

There is no cheating. Whoever gets to finish first wins. Bumping, ganking, bridging, webbing, those are part of normal game play. Let the fun begin!


(Amak Boma) #16

its still unfair. this way noone can win this race


(Brewlar Kuvakei) #17

Titan Bridge or WH ftw.


(Uriel the Flame) #18

Elephant in the room? :elephant: :slight_smile:

Can’t wait! :popcorn: :smiling_imp:


(Rin Vocaloid2) #19

I’m pretty sure a lot of gankers will be waiting at crucial systems where bridging is possible and where Concord is slowest to respond.

The fastest route from Jita to Choonka will take the haulers through low-sec space. Even though the race is through high-sec, it is without a doubt that at least some of these haulers will be tempted to bridge through the low-sec system Kamela (0.4) that is literally just a stargate jump away from the finish line. So expect a lot of ships to converge on the Choonka side of the Kamela gate.

The safest route route will still have Niarja (0.5) which will likely present a problem for haulers. Then there is Jita itself where the initial ganking will likely take place.

Keep in mind that there is only a one-jump difference between the fastest route and the safest route.

UPDATE:

Here is a link to the Jump Planner. The haulers will likely have to jump Aset before reaching Kamela.
