Welcome once again!

In a little over a week, Hulkageddon II will commence! By now (as you have doubtlessly learned) we have amassed a rather significant amount of prizes, somewhere in the 8-10 billion isk range in a variety of categories. I just have to add an armageddon and some small stuff to the prize list later today, but itís essentially finished. At this point I would like to ask that you do not send in anymore physical prizes.

The Jackpot

There have been a few questions about this. The jackpot will be awarded to a random participant by means of a number drawn from a digital hat. I will probably have Chribba or some other public figure like mynxee do the drawing so there is no accusations of funny business. The Jackpot is currently just shy of 1.2 Billion isk!

If you want to sponsor Hulkageddon, please donate some isk to Hulkageddon Jackpot in game.

ďBut wasnít the jackpot already over 1.2b helicity?Ē

Yes, yes it was! this brings me to the next point on my agenda:

Hulkageddon Orphanage
I have skimmed a few iskies off the jackpot to buy some skillbooks for the jackpot character and open up a corporation. Hulkageddon orphanage is a temporary corp where solo players or alts can apply to have some company during the event.

So, if you donít have anyone to fly with, you might consider joining up here and hooking up with some other solo pilots. Unfortunately I will NOT have the time to hold your hand in there, so Iíd ask that some of the more experienced players that join the orphanage help other members and coordinate their own strikes.

At the end of the event there will be a nice little surprise for the participating orphans (a collectorís item no less!)

Jackpot is still training a few skills, so I will not be accepting applications till the 6th of january.

If you would like to help with the orphanage or organize some gangs for the orphans please send an evemail to hulkageddon jackpot and I will get back to you.

The Hulkageddon guessing game!
Is still open, and hasnít really gotten the attention it deserves! Go to this thread and read the instructions and place your bets!

Misc. Tips
Even though you still have more than a week to go, I strongly recommend you begin preparations right away. Last time, the (then much more low-key) hulkageddon event bought out EVERY CATALYST IN JITA. So if you donít want to end up without any ships to fly during the event, you might want to stock up now. If there is any builders reading this, feel free to use this thread to advertise your goods as well.

The in-game channel is open!
I have opened up the ingame channel, which is suprisingly named: ďHulkageddon IIĒ today, so if you wanna hang out with the other holy warriors, feel free to join and chat at your leisure. This might also be a good place for the novice ganker to ask questions


---update--
Thanks to the beloved clown punchers, the jackpot is now at 2.2 BILLION ISK

--update---

apparently, I now need to contract terminal cancer, i wont quote it here but i have the quote on the hulkageddon page here

This. We took a freighter to Jita a week ago and bought every single Light Neutron Blaster I on the market, it's going to be tough to get your gear once this starts.

And then we wonder why Hulk prices are so high...

not that I'm complaining of course. There are some people who need to experience loss of their barges sometime...then mineral prices might be worth something =)

Hi: 8x light neutron blaster I with faction antimatter
Mid: sensor booster I's
low: 2x MFS I

thrasher is the same:

Hi:7x 280mm howitzer I with RP EMP or PP
Mid: 3x sensor booster I
low: 2x gyro I

alternatively one on your team can put a point in the mids, but if the miner is sitting still it usually doesnt matter, they wont get out in time.

With good skills, a destroyer can take down a retriever solo in 0.5, 0.6 but for a hulk youll need at least 4 or so to get enough dps.

Edit: also note that your respective warp in points will vary. The catalyst needs to drop in on the miner at 0, while the thrashers should drop in at 10km.

Let me tell all you scum sucker gankers (What is a ganker?)(I'm a noob)Anyway, if any of you low life pigs try to blow up my hulk, i'll f--king put a big price on your head. You'll have nightmares and be looking under your beds, and in your closets at nights wondering when I'm gonna chop off that ugly sap sucking pathetic head of yours! Oh wait, I don't even own a hulk! Oh, sorry, never mind :) Oh, and good luck in the tourny!Embarassed I gotta quit smoking weedLaughing

At last count Catalysts were going for under 650k ISK in Genesis. Dunno how the prices are in and around Jita (or if there are any left to buy). If you want to stock up for fairly cheap, take a quick trip out here. Razz Close to 100 available under 700k, it looks like.

Personally, I'm not competent enough yet (haven't the skills nor the funds) to participate directly, but I or my more piratey alt may be out in a rifter to tag along and watch the carnage. It'll be a nice break from grinding low-level missions and can mining. (No, I can't afford a Hulk - I would hardly be so jovial if I were a hulk miner right about now.)

Any assistance I can offer to those intrepid gankers who will be flying next week? I can, I suppose, cook up some MFS and SB's to sell or donate to the cause, as it appears that some poor orphans may be in need of such things. It's like Toys for Tots, except instead of toys they get increased DPS. I'd love to help with the Catalyst supply, but I'm not rolling in quite that much dough (as I think I mentioned above).

EDIT: Cats are cheaper still in Verge Vendor - around 600k if you're willing to make the trip.

I'm busting a nut here trying to get trained up for my Hulk Of Doom, but I don't think it will happen on time.

I was looking forward to having a ton of KMs with my HOD as the victor. Ah well... being that most Hulk gankers are simply too stupid for PVP, I will have plenty of opportunity in the future. Just not as target rich as that special time known as Hulkageddon.

Have fun people and I'll be ready for next year.

I wont be ready with sufficient tank skills in time for this event, next time, for sure, so i will park my hulks for a while and use covetors, its only a small loss in yield, nothing that i cant deal with, about the only annoyance will be the reduced hold space, which will fill while my hauler is doing the round trip. Good luck all, happy hunting.

When I started Eve no one warned me about gankers, and within 1 week of having a retriever, I went pop.

Hulkageddon however doesnít bother me, cos I detest (sorry) macro/afk miners. The concern I have is this: Is everyone gunning for macro/afk miners only or all Hulk pilots.
The headline is Hulkageddon: donít AFK mine.
But whats to stop someone webbing or scrambling a pilot who isnít afk.
Iíve had this before, but luck was a corp mate helped out.

Also is there anyway of getting involved without lossing security status? My Gallente status is quite high and donít really want it to drop.

All Hulks and other Exhumers are valid targets, macro \ afk or not.

As for sec status, nope, there's no way to avoid it. You can try can flipping, but, well, that wouldn't be suicide gankingYARRRR!!
