To celebrate my CSM win (read: Loss) I have decided to repay the miners who helped me win my last place alternate seat. I will be delivering a Brand Spankng New Rorqual to the fastest Orca pilot who attends/wins the race.

The rules are simple: You will be warping to a safe spot, where there will be place markers for starting positions. There will be three checkpoints: #1 will be a can for you to FLY TO (note: not warp off and back)#2 will be a can that you WARP TO after unpacking checkpoint #1's contents and then you will scoop #2's contents. And Lastly checkpoint #3 where you will drop the contents of both earlier checkpoints into an unanchored GSC.

The Rorqual will be paid out immediately to the fastest Orca. The location will be disclosed in game via contacting your CSM Elect (alternate) Darius III.

Best of luck gentlemen and may the fastest ship win! Contest will be held in very lightly trafficked **HIGH SECURITY** system for mining opportunities after the race! Hope to see you there!

PS Second place is 3 free PLEX, 3rd is 2 PLEX and 4th is A plex 5th wins hulk 6th wins mackinaw and 7th a covetor. Door prizes will be awarded for ALL attendees. This should be a blast-see you there!

tl;dr - I would like to gank some Orcas. This is easier if they're nano-fit with much less structure to play around with.

Keep up the good work Darius Wink

************ HIGH SECURITY SPACE***************

REPEAT ***RACE WILL BE HELD IN HIGH SECURITY SPACE**

No one will get ganked. I give my SOLEMN PROMISE AS CSM ELECT (5th alternate) No one will be attacked by me, my corp, my alliance or anyone else if we can help it. I have a few volunteers already lined up in logistics and BC+BS to protect the contestants. Perfectly safe mates!
**NOTE** I reserve the right to postpone the race if it looks like bad people will be in system!
As it currently stands the race will be CLOSE TO JITA IN HIGH SEC and if moved will NEVER GO THROUGH ON INTO LOWSEC/NULLSEC. You will be completely protected. This is REAL!!!

Safespot will be ON GRID/Near Grid OF A STATION or PLANET or MOON

IT WILL NOT BE IN ANY SORT OF MISSION OR DANGEROUS PLACE. It will be warpable INDEPENDENTLY. You will NOT need to be in fleet to warp to the race location.

This is for fun, but a serious race and no scams-no ganks NO TRICKS!

Again I make this solemn promise as OFFICIALLY ELECTED CSM FULL MEMBER (of the alternate category-last place) NO ONE WILL BE HURT OR KILLED DURING THE EVENT!!!

Really people?

If you're interested in winning the Rorqual then you better have some idea of how to tank an Orca while building it for speed.

You CANNOT use a Rorqual in High-sec. So unless you're planning on just chop-shopping it, you should know how to config a mining ship for low/nullsec. Wink With the contest being in high-sec your tank will be benefited by Concord if any trouble starts.

Take a break man. Slow down. The Rorqual will be "delivered" via contract and the pilot WILL NEED TO ACCEPT the contract. If you CHOOSE to fly it after-thats your ship and your choice. I think the winner will likely sell the Rorq, but it wont be in a "kick-out station" and no it won't be in or around Rancer, Oldman Star or anywhere notoriously outlaw. I will buy the Rorq from the winner for 90% of regional if the winner decides to sell and wants immediate isk. Limited to the first 20 people signed up and in system.

What is ETZ? Is that anything like EST (EVE Standard Time)?

EST is abbreviation for Eastern Standard Time so to avoid confusion many players use ETZ to abbreviate Eve Time Zone. Thanks for your questions and your interest. This is a real event without any catch.

So, you will be using the abandon mechanic to turn the cans blue/give up aggro rights?

Shouldn't you be concentrating on persecuting in-game alternatives 1 - 3 and a random member of the CSM until they all emo-rage quit the game ?

Confirming that this is totally legit. Bonus prizes* for 'best pimped ride' will be awarded to Orcas with a faction fitting.

*Orca lands in active mission.
*Orca has no tank as it is fitted for speed/agility and cap recharge.
*Orca dies in a fire.
*Orca death is captured on FRAPS.

Sounds fun!
