Is this some kind of lame joke? I hope to god you guys are kidding....

I'm afraid CCP's next annoucement will be a great starship graveyard from which the ghosts of destroyed ships must find their way back to thier wrecks in order to gain all of thier officer fittings back.

Is crack legal in Iceland?

This is golden Very Happy Although I would allow more ships, say 7, or establishing a valuation scheme like with a vanilla PvP tournament so we can watch people coming in Ospreys and getting torn apart by Tristans…

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo /signed.

This is such an insane idea, very funny Laughing

The commentators are going to have a hard time guessing at who is currently winning.

Talk about thinking out of the box.

Sorry guys but lets be honnest MC & co. are great guys and all but lets give others a chance to shine :)



I hope you understand two things, firstly MC really stands for "Mining Coalition", Seleene will be more than happy to confirm that if you ask him. Secondly MC no longer exsist these days as "true" entity.

Trust me when I say that MC has leet Mining Hax. It wouldnt surprise me if before MC disolved, they had all of their MoM's(+5) mining Bisot with 20 T2 mining drones each all at the same time.

Wait- 2 Questions for the devs:

Is the rorqual piloted?


Can it use it's tractor beams to bring in cans?

I'm guessing not, that it's just a drop off point, is that true?



And second question: Is the enemy's rorqual targetable... Twisted Evil

No, think of it as a huge, cool looking secure container. It's there to drop off ore to, nothing more.

Excellent idea, Kudos for thinking outside of the box, it should be fun.

I was part of the KIA team last year and well wasn't gonna bother this year if it was the same, it was fun last year but everyone ended up flying the same damn thing.

The details will be announced later on this month as per the blog, but no, it won't be restricted to alliances.

Very intriguing.

No hauler though ? Not much point in jetcan mining then.

Would it be some kind of deadspace area ? Otherwise , it's trivial to gangwarp to the arkonor roid. Bookmarks can also be used to short warp to the rorqual and back.

More like boring tournament, right? T1 frigates are slow, the combat arena is 180km. To travel from the ark to your Rorqual will probably take 1 full minute (omg so much fun lolololol) It sounds like it will be a lot of caracal/ewar spam, warping out when hostiles get near and boring moving/mining.

You also say that the objects are 20km away from each other and then the picture shows they are 30km away from each other, which is it?

Without knowing the warpin/warpout rules you can't really formulate how to play this (including the use of WCS) Obviously you setup a 150km spot, BM the ark and warp in, mine, align out, warp out, warp to rorq, etc etc. Since you can warp out whenever you want I don't forsee a whole lot of combat taking place. I mean even if you do blow up your enemy, they are back with a minute or two.

You displayed the point scheme in a misleading way. Let me elaborate for the non-miners:
Veldspar = 1 pt = 800 units mined in 2 minutes = 800 pts
Gneiss = 100 pts = 16 units mined in 2 minutes = 1600 pts
Ark = 500 pts = 5 units mined in 2 minutes = 2500 pts

Using unbonused/unskilled Miner I mining for 2 mins for 80m3.

No impressed with this idea so far, maybe more people will post and that will change but I don't see where the excitement will be. In every other tournament I have had to skip 5-8 minutes of boring footage each battle and I don't doubt this will be much different. 4 T1 frigates and 1 T1 cruiser with T1 mods, that just SCREAMS epic eve gameplay......

Darn. I'd love to be able to take part in this one - just Fanfest is far too expensive for those of us Down Under. (The price of flights really add up fast)

Assuming the teams all take it fairly seriously and go all-out, it should actually be pretty amusing.

Wow. If only we could get close to the same dev response per page ratio in the speed nerf thread as here. Dev's never like to discuss the hard topics.

If ccp don't put this on eve tv for those of us who have to work/study during fanfest I'm gonna launch 1 million shuttles outside of jita IV 4 =p

more seriously could ccp make it possible to overheat mining lasers for this upcoming event? last I checked they couldn't overheat.

also....
boosters?
implants?
exotic dancers? (every pvp tournament ship should have 1 in hold)
cloaks?


lastly I predict very heavy use of the caldari ships such as caracal, osprey, blackbird.

So if your ship dies, you are free to run back to the station and get a new ship. Therefore, the fastest way to win is to blow up the other players ships and then warp scramble the pods, if you can have all of your ships but one do this to all of their ships, you win by default.

Thoughts?

Oh you super genius, and what prevents the enemy team to camp the ark spot and slaughter you if you warp in with your mining ships? Nothing.

A full mining cycle can be damned long if you are under attack!

Exactly it does. Because it shows if the PLAYER has skills and can come up with some tactics. No idiots hiding behind multi-billion fitting to cover their lack of thinking.
