Who knew first person controls/camera could be so fun flying around the citadel.

As far as we are aware we think we were the first to put up a citadel in null.

Easy way to answer, what time did your citadel come online because one was killed in null about 12 hours ago

Looks great! This is a little one though right? You wouldn't be able to park your titan inside there. Also, why were the wings on your Cerberus not deployed in warp?

Nice video, some great shots.

When the going gets tough the Gankers get their CSM rep to change mechanics in their favour.

Ours was well over 12 hours ago :) And 4 minutes before the one in poitot was built... and died... :)

And yeah this is a medium, can't dock titans or caps. Cerberus wings are up in warp and it was a corp members, I was first person in an ares.

Anyone know of a timestamp of an earlier citadel?

While citadels are very impressive... they are a huge isk sink.

Too easy to blow up, everyone wants to blow them up.

Been around since the beginning.

The death timer on the poitot one isn't an indication of when it finished anchoring, it starts a 15 minute vulnerability timer which can be extended by being attacked So without their anchoring mail we wont really know

Its worth noting that it would take a minimum of 24 minutes to siege a newly built citadel with only its structure so it finished anchoring atleast 24 minutes before it died

Not from the UK. What is Bovril, anyway? Is it good? Recommended?

Only the BPOs are ISK sinks. Everything else is not.

BOVRIL is a nullsec mining corp with a PvP aspect. Think of a fleet of Skiffs in an ice belt getting dropped on, and killing all the attackers. They've recently bounced around a few alliances while looking for a good fit and a couple weeks ago joined OSS, a Syndicate based PvP alliance who are (were?) deployed up north for World War Bee.

Anybody know how good the refining efficiency is in a Citadel compared to a POS or Outpost? I wonder if Citadels will prove to be much more profitable for mining oriented people than the structures they will be replacing.

I believe when they were in BRAVE they were the first (only?) corp to successfully hatch an outpost in Catch.

It was zero surprise (to me at least) that they'd now be building a citadel.

This is pretty nice. Good Visuals and I quite like how close you got.

Im moving this to the MY EVE Section so it can be with all the other videos.

Congrats for putting up one of the first citadels! Really great video! I didn't look much into citadels until now but I'm very impressed how fantastic and vivid they look (kudos to the designers at CCP!). Hopefully the thing will survive a few days!
