BREAKING NEWS

The Caldari Navy SCUM have bribed CONCORD officials to forbid any and all Pandemic Legion pilots from entering high-security space. When trying to redeem Clone Soldier Tags at a CONCORD approved station, Pandemic Legion pilots are told to standby and wait. Their paperwork becomes lost, and sec-status reverted back to OUTLAW status, much like our "outlaw" Provist brethren.

If you go to high security space tomorrow we will not be able to follow. You will die, alone, in the cold, while money-grubbing capsuleers desecrate your corpse for the dirty money supplied by the Caldari Navy.

If you come to low-security space, we can protect you and escort you to a safe haven of your choosing in the so-called Drone Regions. Consider our offer of sanctuary. It is your only hope of survival.



Okay, +1 for this, lol.

Well, this time, many fleets did their best to defy PL dominance. Most noteworthy was the Spectre fleet, using mobility to stay out of harms way while engaging the carriers.

The full report on this battle: Provist Taskforce succeeds at Taisy!

All in all, a very chaotic fight, with many fleets fighting it out, sometimes amidst the PL fleet. Not my place of choice to duke it out but hey!
Does seem people had quite some fun with this, consideirng how many fleets kept attacking despite being severely outnumbered.

At the end, Provists thanked Pandemic Legion for defending them and jumped out, their unknown objetcive finished.

Taisey, what a cluster @#$%.

T1 frig camp on the gate coming in the system. Then I warp to a planet, create safe, warp to another planet and land 50km from 25ish pirate wolfs. Somehow i warp out before they get tackle. Fleet member then gets on grid of 3 chimera's. Gives the command warp to them. I go in warp then the guy says "oh ****, im dead" on ts.

Before I exit warp I get massive lag, slowly waiting for everything to load. I see 50ish Apoc's from PL over 50km away from my sniper eagle. I die instantly before it even finishes loading my overview.

Fleets disperses in a panic. I lose 220 mil. My life in eve.



That was probably the smartbombs Smile

It's a bad idea to warp to zero!

Probably a much worse idea to attend lowsec events PL have made it clear they are, (select own end for sentence ) - running / ruling / dominating / using as personal playgrounds

- - invictu5 - Welcome to what passes for, an Eve event where all players can participate - PL style ( proudly supported by CCP)

My opinions are mine.

  If you don't like them or disagree with me that's OK.- - - - - - Just don't bother Hating - I don't care

It really is getting harder and harder to justify $23 a month for each sub.

Jeebus. Because using an on-grid safe to load grid before warping your entire fleet into the bowels of hell is not a thing any more, right? Welcome to 2006 (possibly much earlier).

Seriously, 90% of the bitching about this is because people who are whining just don't know how to do fleet PVP. Use it as an opportunity to learn, rather than going "hey, the guys who know what they're doing are winning, it's not fair! Ceeee Ceeee Peeeeeeeee, make it so their knowledge/experience/competence doesn't count or I will throw my toys at you".

You've never experienced Tidi have you?
An on grid safe?? Once you are on grid, you are on grid, in pvp there is nowhere "safe" and "on grid".
You are either at a safe or you are on grid.

When Tidi is active or on the verge of - you can experience what feels like a massive lag spike
Once you leave the "safe" and warp onto grid - you will again find you need to load grid. In 10% Tidi this single action can take a long time. Often long enough that when you do eventually load grid it is to see yourself floating in a pod or worse, having to update your clone.


Pings up, joins fleet, jumps to system of fight, - Tidi - times passes, load grid, too late, updates clone and listens to the fight on teamspeak.

Yes, I have. Many times, though of course not as many as proper hardcore nullsec-ers with their regular pos timers and stuff - that doesn't interest me.

You are either at a safe or you are on grid.

Protip: there are no ships that can hit you from 300km + away.

Which is why you load the grid before putting yourself in range of their guns. Warping within the grid doesn't cost anywhere near as much as warping between grids.

This is a slightly different situation. Jump lag can be a PITA. But seriously, dude, if a fleet has no idea what is going on on the field of the fight, it shouldn't warp to a random fleet mate who hasn't given all the intel. It certainly shouldn't then blame TiDi and PL for them leeroying into that ****.

Disappointed Plex are being offered for this event. I feel better rewards would be ship skin options for any of the Caldari ships. As most of those prizes are over a billion isk,

With the total prizes offered being somewhere around 500 Billion isk for the entire event.

I'm also disappointed how once again Logi pilots get left in the dark on an event, despite performing highly important roles for any fleet.

That said, the event itself looks great, just the rewards scheme doesn't


If anyone from your corporation wins - they should be distributing your fair share of that wealth to you. I don't see how anything you've just said strictly necessitates CCP's intervention.

Last event was perfect the way it was, lots of ships and lots of pew. Thank you for putting it in highsec, it gave a lot of people the opportunity to have fun. Regardless of the plex, it was thrilling to fly onto grid and see 7 carriers and a mom there. I thought I wouldn't make it on time because of the huge TiDi en route to Usi, but I managed to get in the middle of the battle. Awesome event!

edit: there were a thousand people in local too, so turnout was great!

the tidi from Jita the whole way there was a bit of a pain but the system at least held ok,

I will say this I thought my taunts would at least get me targeted by the poor cap nullified web scrammed and jammed ship... oh wait they couldn't even with a high sig radius :p

other than that I was on one kill mail the Wyveren ( http://affirmativealliance.com/killboard/index.php/kill_detail/1673/) 31112 (0.35%) damage so yay its just a pity the kill mail for super caps only go to the person that "laid the final blow" especially for special events. maybe something the devs should look at is the ability to send the mail (in these events) to everybody with there ranking i.e. Wyveren kill rank (xxx) just an idea.

The news that just went out is listing the supercarrier pilot and winning capsuleers twice in the list, while at the start of the article it says "The Chimera, piloted by Kossen Jaikka, ..." needs to be corrected to Wyvern.

The top damage (ship class) rewards are not cumulative with the top overall damage. Whoever comes in second with the same ship class as the top overall damage dealer will take home the class reward. In order to claim the corpse reward, players must contract the corpse to Hikemi Korrado at no cost (we will check to make sure the corpse is the correct one).


Note how the above only states that the top damage rewards aren't cumulative.

On the killmail, it lists myself as having the top Battleship damage, and also the killing blow on the Carrier, yet the news article states:

wowow, so your'e saying I am not getting my rewards? that is kind of mean, is it not? I was listed as the victor of this prize, had opened my quafe and champagne and was celebrating a successful event. That "mistake" is kind of emotionally draining, and disheartening.
