Ran on behalf of I Legionnaire

Note: The most up to date version of the rules will always be found here.


An Ex-Tusker, I Legionnaire was in the process of quitting the game due to RL reasons and had donated ~13B worth of ISK & ships to use to encourage new players to try out PvP. We spent a considerable amount of this ISK on the last Frigate FFA, which by all accounts was a roaring success. Now, time for Round 2!

The rules for the follow up to that event remain roughly the same, with a few changes to make things more interesting. First off, the location of the system the frigate FFA will take place in will not be revealed until 48 hours before the event starts. This reduces the risk of any "unpleasantness" occurring.

The event will take place on Saturday the 5th January from 18:00 to 24:00 Evetime (yes that's an extra two hours of fun compared to the last event!) and engage anything that lands on grid with you, including your alliance mates, blues & corpmates - they are ALL fair game.

A multitude of prizes will once again be available, ranging from Tech 1 Frigates to Faction Battleships, as well as a few oddballs thrown in there for good measure. Neither the list of prizes or their associated requirements to achieving them will be told until after the end when the winners are announced, in order to prevent people trying to game the contest rather than simply slaughtering everything they find (or not....). Note that the best prizes will only be available for young characters (for this purpose, these are defined as characters who are less than 1 year old). Prizes will be contracted in Jita to the winners within 48 hours of the tournament ending, ideally I'll have finished this straight after the event. Any donations to the prize pool are most welcome - please contract them to me (Suleiman Shouaa) & send me an short evemail so I know why I'm getting ships. Bear

There are a few restrictions in place to ensure everyone has a good time, namely.....

  • No link alts allowed - any detected will be found & destroyed, with their main being exempt from receiving any prizes.
  • Intentionally teaming up with someone else is not allowed - FFA stands for Free For All!
  • No podding of other participants
  • ONLY Tech 1 Frigate hulls are allowed until 21:00, after which time any Frigate or Destroyer hull is allowed. Want to try out an Algos or a Corax? Now's your chance!
  • You are allowed to warp off, but you can't warp to safe spots or stargates, hence you need to carry a disruptor or scrambler to prevent the enemy from escaping!
  • No cloaks are permitted.
  • ECM is disallowed, both in the form of the drones or modules.

Reshipping is allowed and encouraged! We will have an assortment of fitted ships available for people who sign up before midnight on Thursday 3rd January by either

  1. Sending me (Suleiman Shouaa) an evemail
  2. Posting in the Failheap Challenge Thread, including your character name
  3. Post in this thread with the character you will be using. Note that claiming ships on multiple characters will see you not receive any.

As the system name will not be released until 48 hours before the event, you have two methods of moving your own ships into the staging system - you can either
  1. Contract a station container with unfitted ships + fittings to go with them from Jita IV-IV station which is called "XXXXX", where XXXXX is your character name to Amoux Ganthier. This container will then be moved to the fight system and will be either traded or contracted to you before the event commences
  2. OR you can wait until the system gets announced and move your ships there yourself.

We will be giving out our Mumble server details just before the event kicks off if you want to chat with us whilst we (and you!) are dying gloriously.

See you there!

1. Any and all rules are subject to change. Latest version can always be found here.
2. If I feel you are violating the spirit of the event (namely many, many tiny explosions), you may become ineligible to receiving any prizes.

I am I Legionnaire, Sulei himself can confirm this. I've sold off that character so don't contact him in regards to the event.

I'll be donating 100 of each of the following, Algos, Corax, Talwar, Coercer, Thrasher, Catalyst, Rifter, Incursus, and Merlin.
The idea being that you can get a free hull and ship in your own mods in a cloaky hauler.

Alternatively, once the system is announced I can haul in mods for you.

I'll also be stocking the system with commonly used items at Jita prices.

The last one was great fun! Hours of uncomplicated frigate pewpew with all kinds of fights, from duels to the massive nonstop brawl at top belt.
