The Evolving Gods Organisation corporation was founded to run a number of social projects in New Eden in an attempt to differentiate itself from the large number of Industrial or PvE, PvP corporations. The most successful project to date has been the Golden Fleet Project, which has now grown to become the main focus of not only the E.G.O. corp, but also the alliance, Brotherhood of Stellar Steel.

The Golden Fleet Project (GFP) could be described as a “doomsday weapon”, as the basic premise is to gather 7000 fully armed ships with pilots and send them out for one day of organized attacks!

Clearly this is an ambitious project and requires a huge number of resources and laborers. The Alliance has pilots who wish to see the project succeed, these are people who are matching donations from the general population and putting in hours of labor in fitting and naming ships. since the project is so huge we are always accepting donations which help us achieve our goal. but enough of that, you came here to know how this all works.

How we plan to make history: The Golden Fleet Project. This social project in a nutshell is the giveaway of 7000 battle ready ships ranging from frigates to battleships. To create the single largest Strike fleet in EVE history, that's right, 7000 against any others.

How it’s awarded: Only pilots owning Evolving Gods Organization corporation shares can apply for the use of the fleet. Shares can not be bought from the corp, those that make a donation working toward the goal are awarded shares.. Shares can be bought and sold in free market as often as possible and for any price the individual wants to charge. There are currently over 5746 shares in circulation and more than 2000 ships in the Golden Fleet.

Jumpclone Fleet: the pilots of the Golden Fleet are just the common players from any number of systems and regions in the eve universe these pilots are shareholders for the (EGO) corp. those players will have Jumpclones at the gathering point station where the fleet is held. just before the launch date these players are issued a ship from the fleet according to their total number of shares,organized into fleets and given a target to attack.

Getting shares: Shares are acquired from donations to the project or task that help the project along. the number of shares you receive for a donation is dependant on the value of the donation compared to the current share value calculated by the the current value of the fleet. in order to protect the founding corp there is a limit of 1000 shares per player. Players can send donations to Xeracer by contracts.

How can you profit: until the launch date the pilots/shareholders will have to do training in order to sharpen their skills. this training will be in the form of “leasing” small fragments of the fleet to operations paid for by those in need of mercs..the profits from these activities will be used to expand the fleet and sent to its’ shareholders in the form of dividins and bonuses joining these training sessions can also gain you more share, allowing you to make more, and have a larger ship and position in the fleet.

Launch date: the launch date for 12-21-2012 is still a go. we are currently slightly ahead of schedule and plan to meet this date with a full compliment of ships and pilots.

How targets are picked: since we want a good fight, a list of targets that are worthy of a 7000 ship fleet will be given to the shareholders in the form of a vote,, the target from the list that gets the winning vote will be the target of the fleet. this target will be in a null security zone and may consist of pos’s, a corp or alliance. and laying waste to any obstacles, gate camps or ambushes in route.
The Aftermath: after the attack it is hoped that any surviving ships will return to the launch point. from there we hope to turn the fleet into a huge merc strike fleet for rent to the highest bidder with profits being paid out in dividing to the shareholders.

Current Share value: 683,533.00 isk
Current Number of Shares in public circulation: 5746 = 3.928bil

Current list of ships:
number of T2 ships 0
number of battleships 3 (~@70mil) = 210mil
number of battlecruisers 12 (~@25mil) = 75mil
number of destroyers 800 (~@650K) = 520mil
number of cruisers 140 (~@3.5mil) = 490mil
number of standard frigates 800 (~@100K) = 80mil
number of high end frigates 300 (~@175K) = 52.5mil

Total ship value = 1.428bil

Shares to ship conversion
the number of shares you must have to get a ship class.
standard frigate = 1 share = 683,533 isk
high end frigate = 3 shares = 2mil
destroyer = 5 shares = 3.4mil
cruiser = 17 shares = 11.6mil
battlecruiser = 65 shares = 44.4mil
battleship = 177 shares = 120.1 mil

Profit (thus far) = 3.928bil - 1.428bil = 2.5bil

Is this some new fangled sort of lottery? Smile

well where do i start? i could attempt to defend this from all those that accuse it of being a scam but some ppl you will never change their minds.. i will say this, it is not a scam and with nearly 3 yrs of honest play i'm shocked at the response of those that would say such things..

the facts are no it's not a scam. my corp and alliance do plan to hand out these ships to the shareholders. i seen one post that figured up the current value of the fleet i would like to point out these facts about that post.
1. your value is pretty close but remember each ship is fitted with a basic package which cost also.
2. the ships recieved from public donations and gifts equals less than half the ships assembled thus far the rest have been built by my corp and alliance.
3.its not really a lottery, lotteries you give a small amount in hopes of getting back a large amount (testing your luck) this you get an amount of shares equal to the value of your donation. once launched you get a ship equal to the number of shares you have, questions. i can see the number of shares you have and know what type of ship to issue to you no luck to it.
timezones for launch: the alliance is uk and usa based with a differance in time of about 6 to 8 hours.. when the fleet is launched it will take several hours from the time the first ship attacks, till the last ship attacks. from our calculations this will be about 7 hours which falls perfectly into the timszones we currently use.
Lag issue: in order to attempt to beat the lag issue the fleet will be launched in waves of 70 fleets consisting of 100 ships each. with a FC leading each fleet and comms provided to those FC's in the form of a TS3 server which is paid for by an alliance member and has enough room for over 500 persons, but we will only need slots for 70.

and this is for the one question that i did not see.."WHY" the truth is i'm bored and so are those that have decided to assist me in this endevour. true we could dump billions into titans and cap ships but then we still have to find a group of support ships and all that jazz... then we can be just like every other player in the game following the same carrot.. but with a lil original thinking we can do something completely off the wall and try and do something never done before in this game..after all it says it's our sandbox and we are ready and willing to test that bragg..

anymore questions? or if you can help make this work feel free to contact me

7000 ships undock-----> 7000 black screens----->7000 clones reactivated.

production has slowed down some during the holiday months we hope to churn out more ships this year in order to keep up with our launch date..donations have dropped off dramaticly and shareholders are holding...we have set a goal to reach the halfway point by july 4th 2011. that means another 1300 ships in less than 6 months for those that have followed this idea from its beginings in Evebowl forums to now, we need your support advertise advertise we find new people each day that want to be apart of the event. and are willing to help. if you would like to help or donate please contact me, i will be more than happy to give you answers to your questions..

yes anyone wishing to see the fleet is welcome to do so.. simply contact me and i will arrange for meeting at the fleet storage area. there i will open a trade with the player and place all ships into the window. after the player has made there count the window will be canceled out returning the ships to their hanger.

since this is time consuming i will limit the viewing to 1 player per week.

um... how do you expect to FIND 70 fc's???? Most large 0.0 alliances have like.. 10 capable of leading a fleet of 100 people that are disaplined.... you want to find 70 fc's to lead fleets of 100 people that doubtfully will know how to follow simple orders like hold on gate instead of jumping.

also, why should anyone send you isk that you hold onto for... what? a year from now almost? wait no... you said 12/21/2012??? so 2 more years from now??? ow can you be sure your still be around then? or that the isk i send you now will be enough for a fit bs?? this post is so full of bs that it needs a brown background.

Maybe XeRacer is just following an eccentric idea because that is his personal idea of fun. I convo'd him in-game and he was willing to be audited [although I don't think it's worthwhile as he is unlikely to attract any investment from MD due to the poor quality of his financial calculations].

I don't think this idea can work, and the finances involved are pretty bad, but EVE is a sandbox so random ideas like this will come up from time to time. And if it's a scam then it's the worst scam ever.

I understand the doubt that some of you have. but the case may be that i'm looking at the game different than most. a few cases to point out.

1. Holiday spirit: each year for 6 years this guy has given out billions in assets. why? becuase he enjoys it. it's an event that he hosts.

2. Odessa Marie: the host of www.evebowl.com gives away millions of isk in assets each month hosting free lotteries. why? because he enjoys it. he host the event and lotteries everyday.

3.Edwin Rothbard: host of rothbards casino, even though the casino may generate some profits the work to run it is no easy task and he could probly make more running missions. so why do it? because he enjoys it. the work is nothing compared to the satisfaction gotten from any of the above events.

those that support the idea, do so because the enjoy seeing something other than the same old cookie cut ideas. true this project wil not make isk. it was never meant to. it's an event, one of such large dimensions that no one person could ever do it alone. and even a group would have great difficulty pulling it off..the build alone is enough to drive one crazy.

when this started it was a social experiment just one of many it's purpose to see if the unorganized populas of high sec would organize if given the chance. true i have written fanfiction and advertised in many lobbies i have cut deals with donors, pulled people together that normally would have never met, hell i have even had my wife mining ice while i was at work in order to raise funds for the project. and if it all fails have i wasted my time? no because i had fun doing it. i thought outside the box and took the things that i enjoyed and applied them to the game. BUT if it succeds not only will i have fun but 100's and 1000's of others will too. every year miners are tormented with events like hulkageddon, transports are ganked at gates, cans are flipped and pirates haunt the hallows of high sec space..

what a treat for 1000's of high sec nobodies to ban together and once just once storm the gates of null sec killing anything that moves. a defiant fist of faceless locust reaping revenge apon any and all. Not to mention the mayhem of alliances bidding to have their enemy attacked and working with the project paying off shareholders to sway the vote so they can rally with the project fleet providing bookmarks targets and ammo even their own fleets so as to hit hard and take over a region. using the project as a weapon to satisfy their own objectives. and you say there is no fun to be had by doing such a project?

and what do i get from all this? i get to see all the chaos that my idea created. is that worth sticking around for? hell yea it is.

the point is if you don't think it will work then don't donate a ship or buy shares from our shareholders set back on the sidelines and let the rest of us have fun. because no matter what i say your mind is made up. but for some of us, we don't think impossible we think possible and the chance for fun is well worth some ship that we were going to lose sooner or later anyways.

So decide for yourself take the chance now for something fun later, or keep doing the same thing day after day with no chance of change..after all this is EVE no risk no rewards.

until you make up your mind try to have fun
