There were 4 Imp Apocs given out to the winners off the Amarr Championship, these were Kileak, Grikl, Ecliptical and Black Viper.

Grikl's Imp Apoc was the first to go boom, when he used it to fight in during the Stain-Curse war.

Ecliptical's Went boom Yesterday, after he sold it and then it was sold onto Tyraxx.

Kileak's Account still owns his but his account is banned, so that Imp Apoc is lost forever also.

Black Viper is the only remaining Owner of an Imp Apoc or atleast that is how i understand it to be.


Black Viper's is likely the one that is in Istvaan's possession.


I dont beleave so, seems Black Viper told me 2 days ago that he still had his, its sitting in stain where they were all moved to just after they were won.

If istvaan has one where did he get it from? who did he steal it from? and where did the person he stole it from get it?

Also the one that was used as a prize for Big's Lottery was given to them by CCP and then taken back out of the game via a Pie event, afaik.

lol lots of people. saying it was dumb to risk the ship. look this is a game and that ship is just a piece of the game. if your not afraid to risk something in game then why play ? And this was the best reason to use a unique ship because in a even match up you want to have every little thing go your way.

As for the set up I think i know what the Impoc team was going for. use NOS's + a tank set up and try to use the IMpoc as a tank. the idea being everyone would say it is the IMPOC lets go kill it. allowing the other teammates to move around more freely.

since they lost i guess it didn't work. but it was a interesting and valid strategy.

That's what the impoc is for. Everyone who thinks it was a waste should ask a question: What else is an impoc for?

Actually the domi could do with some extra powergrid

/me hides from empty cans being thrown...

My respect to both teams for an excellent fight and fielding one of the truely unique ships in EVE.

Pretty blue explosion two!


Yeah the domi is underpowered if anything, 3 nos is 6000pg, dual reps 4000, that leaves you with 500 for a plate and 500 for whatever else you want... ever wonder why everyone uses ECM on a domi? its cos its got butloads of CPU and crap all PG....

People who think its drastically overpowered havent flown them

Why didn't he just Ctrl-Q? It's the ONLY way to play!

Seriously though, kudos on bringing the ship to the tourney.

Ctrl-Q = Ship dead from GM's + Smack from community
How he did lose it = Ship dead from player's + Pat on the back

Much respect to IAC for fielding this ship.

It was sad to see it going down but (imho) it's better to have a huge boom with hundreds/thousands(?) of ppl watching it then having it in an hangar gathering rust or (worser) losing it on a regular fight/gank.

rare ships uber 1 vs 1 primary on other situations. what good a impoc if its webbed, nossed, target jammed, sensor dampened...pick 2 form those situations and u got a dead impoc or federate navy issue...they meant to be a collection ship...it stand out on the battlefield 5 mins instead of 2 mins....and so on...and yea i didnt watch it but things must have worked out something like that.

there really is no point in having a ship like that if you don't field it when it counts, just ashame it turned out the way it did

I've seen Istvaan in a navy apoc a few times, why would he fly a navy version if he had an imperial? Wink

I dont think i've really heard of anyone seeing him fly one, but then i could just be listening to the wrong people. Smile

Actually there were five Imperial Apocalypses, two were destroyed a long time ago, one was returned to the Amarr Empire (BIG got a Impoc from CCP for the anniversary of the BIG Lottery, some RP corps then escorted it to Amarr to give it back to the Empire), one was destroyed during the Tournament, and one is still in the hands of Istvaan Shogaatsu.

I've seen both Istvaan and Arenis Xemdal in their Imperial Apoc's in Sarum Prime at the same time. It was a few days after GHSC had robbed Ubiqua Seraph, and they were probably enjoying the succesfull contract by showing of their wealth in the headquarters of the corp they just robbed 60bil worth of. We (the UQS High Council) actually got a plan ready to suicide bomb at least one of the impoc's if they showed up again. Don't remember the specifics, but it involved *a lot* of Ravens (damage dealing), Scorpions (webbing/scrambling) and Apocalypses (cap/shield transfer, as Logistic Ships didn't exist back then).

Edit: found a screenshot (I was in one of the ships undocking the stations when I noticed them flying in formation. First and only time I've actually seen the ships.)

Well done on fielding the ship, but I can't help feeling that it would be nice to one day see one of these ships actually fighting for the Empire rather than for ISK.

We can't expect that the implications of fielding the Impoc weren't analyzed under all angles before making such decision. It's an excellent example of a win-win case.

Would IAC win the Tournament = Good. Would IAC loose the ship = respect, sadness, ranting or whatever, except indifference and one thing for sure: no one of those involved will forget it. In this sense, this goes way beyond the framework of the Tournament and spreads the message that whatever it takes, IAC/Tyrrax face a given challenge no matter the outcome.

Kudos to Tyrrax to achieve a lasting mnemonic imprint. This was probably one of the most perfect PR operations in EVE up to date, and as the devil's lawyer, IMHO I can't ignore the fact that this mnemonic imprint is so powerful precisely because the Impoc went down Twisted Evil

He has my deepest respect for having the balls to actually go into combat with that thing. I don't think there could have been a better way for it to go down either.

B/c officer and faction modes allow the possibility of each ship being worth multi billions and not every alliance has that cash so ccp didt want one rich alliance pwning everyone else b/c they could afford all officer modes etc.

Who cares if some rare ship was blown to atoms? You all are crying like some newb who lost his ship. Ships in EVE were made to be blown up - and I for one love the fireworks.

Wow, awsome. Would have loved just to SEE that fight.

My question is, did the Impoc take anybody down with it? I read chat log and noticed a few saying they were dead or witnessed somebody dying---who/what did the Impoc take down in its blaze of glory?
