New Order Contest for September of 2014!

Pod killing contest!

THRESH-HOLD FOR ENTRY IS NOW 700 Million - Any pods under 700 Million do not fall into the top top, so please do not submit them!
_______________________________________

Rules: There will be TEN winners of this contest, and rank will be determined not by number of kills but by value of the pod kill itself. The highest value pod of the month will take the first prize, the second pod will take second place, and so on. Targets must NOT have a valid permit at the time of death. The kill, of course, must take place in High-Sec space. ANYONE is welcome to play and take part in the contest, with the exception of the contest creator (myself) or any players who assist me in running the contest. One prize per player. (Exception: Bonus prizes, a player may win a top 10 prize AND a bonus prize!)

How to play: Simple. Go find some pods and shoot them. After the kill, simply eve-mail DJentropy Ovaert with a subject line of "Pod Kill - Sep 2014 Contest". Include a link to the Zkillboard.com record of the kill. In game kill mails will not be accepted, nor will links to any other killboard - Zkill only. If you need help setting up a limited API to automatically upload your kills to zkill, or prefer to manually post them and need help - simply join the minerbumping channel (password is 315) and ask for some help and an agent will be glad to assist you.

The contest will run from Sep 1st (starting at 12:00AM) and will run until Sep 30th (Ending at 11:59pm). This, of course, is server time - not your own personal local time. A "leaderboard" will be made public for anyone to check their status, and will be updated daily.

______________________________________

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Is anyone *not* allowed to take part in this contest?
A: Yes. As the organizer of this contest, I will not be taking part. Any players who donate their time to assist in running this contest will also not be allowed to be considered for a prize.

Q: But pod killing causes a hit to my security status! How do I operate in high-sec with a bad security standing?
A: Easy. Simply join the minerbumping channel (password 315) and ask for help. An agent will be happy to show you how to use Clone Soldier tags to keep your security status high. Our agents have a lot of experience with this, so don't hesitate to ask for help!

Q: My kill was rejected! What gives?
A: You did not follow the rules. Only kills posted to Zkillboard will be accepted. If you feel a mistake was made, simply get in touch with DJentropy Ovaert and we can review things.

Q: I want to sponser this contest! How can I help?
A: If you wish to donate cash or prizes (the nature of the prize itself is up to you, be creative!) simply contact DJentropy Ovaert and we will get things set up. If you wish to help with tracking kills or other administrative work, contact me!

Tora, you are great! That would be wonderful, confirm this with me in-game and I will add your prize to the list!

+1 for content creation that even new players can get involved in, remember everyone: a pod only has ~450 HP, and you can train a anti-pod Thrasher in about 2 hours!

I have a concern.

So many agents and respected members of the New Order have donated amazing prizes to this pool, but we all know that "Figher Jets GuitarSolo" is literally sitting on the largest pile of monocles and ethically sourced gear in all of Jita right now, as well as a pile of Fedo that literally requires a few accounts just to hold.

Fighter Jets, where is your support? I will take you to dinner and buy you flowers, of course.

FOR IMMEDIATE PUBLIC RELEASE

It has come to our attention that some of the folks in CODE., a group that is a friend of the Administration, may or may not have heard some reports that President Nixon is pledging a LIFETIME SUPPLY* of Goru's Shuttles to the cause. At this point, we can neither confirm nor deny the authenticity of these reports. We can, however, confirm President Nixon's support for this initiative, and pledge the President's availability to the press in the near future.

Evemail me or convo me in-game to inquire about my honest and ethical ISK doubling services! If you're in Jita, stop in and say Hi! ;) :D

Using my translator ring (100 Mill purchase for compliance) I just learned that you are providing me with a monocle! SO KIND! Always the best! We should talk sometime, catch up, have a drink... you know shoot the scat (since I am assuming that colloquialism would be null & void like the ammo, HAHA PUNS!) I would offer to sit down for some tea/coffee/caffeinated-beverage-of-choice but I think people will think collusion. So all I have to say is "41-UDH-81-S-8 Station, High Noon!, Floppy" I am sure you know what I mean.

I will update my blog to declare support and will spread the message in my system, too.

And of course will I participate! Too bad it's not about the number of kills,
but then the winners would be predetermined already. ;)

Woohooo! :D

Thanks, Derrick - though the Venture contest never had anything to do with the age of players, simply a specific ship type. I've seen countless older players using them as well. Contact me if you would like to consider adding a prize to the pool :)

Also - everyone - we are only a few days from the kick off of the contest! Get those artie thrashes ready, tons more prizes to be added as the event begins - some lucky people are going to get quite space rich and much fun will be had!
