link for those who never heard of it:

EVE sandbox:
- 42 system run
- specialy created WH's in several systems to reduce amount of jumps
- simple rookie ships, or maybe even the vetship
- teamwork:
--> to find the (efficient) WH's; spawning some time before start
--> decimate opposition; new rookie ship waiting in local station.

yearly :-)

joining this could be as easy as docking in station with your escape pod with a pop-up.
Route could be as difficult as backtracking 1 system to find WH shortcuts.
Price could be gathered year through with donations to kessel run pricepot for example.

Great Idea. I dont think you need anything from devs to do this. Just find few people who will be organisators and do it. Dont be lazy :-)

Also, you know what jump clones can do right? So you will need to create some checkpoints.

CCP really please dont use Upgraded, Limited, Experimental and Prototype in item names. It sounds like the item is actually worse than basic meta 1 item. Use Calibrated, Enhanced, Optimized and Upgraded. Its really easy to understand that the item is better than meta 1 and its also in alphabetic order.

Can try and see how it works out.

I'll suggest day before AT tournament ... as of yet to be decided

People willing to help set this up,
promoting it within corporations and alliances
suggestions how to make check points and verify who came by
or any other ideas to make this work ....

Mail me ingame, from there on we'll see who will be
- Executive Organiser (not me please, i'm just momentarily in between)
- Funds Manager
- Promotor
- Assistances at check points
- Any other function you manage to relay its importance

Lets see how this goes

I've been thinking about the possibility to set this up as a player event for players, but there are to many things that can go wrong.

1) Cyno's
2) Can't use WH shortcuts, due to checkpoints
3) Clone Jumping
4) Limitation to use contracts to avoid clone jumping (only 21 contracts max)

These already make it that the Kessel run / Marathon would just become a joke from the start.
