Hillbillageddon Season I

This thread started as a "joke", see reserved (next) post below what it turned into ( Hillbillageddon Season I )

The mere prospect of this actually working ( a miner/industrialist pulling of an practical joke on hulkageddon parties) seems to be the worst nightmare for Hulkageddon participants and organizers.

Once you think you have it all, you have actually become ignorant towards everything else.

Hillbillageddon Season I

Website is up! (goto http://eve-universe-events.webklik.nl/page/hillbillageddon-s-i )
Update 11 Februari 2012

We are now accepting your e-mails on [email protected]
Please let us know if you will be participating in the event so we can get prepaired publishing your entries.


EDIT: UPDATE!! 16 December 2011:

We have now found out about griefergeddon 2.0. We will allign and be working as a partner with them to replace their last years "No Tears" section.

Please go to http://griefer-geddon.blogspot.com/ for info on griefergeddon 2.0 . They provide different angles to the Hulkageddon offensive.




We have been getting a lot of positive and negative respons to the Hillbillageddon idea. After much debate and discussion it has been decided to take this to a different level. Trust, it seems, is a big issue in EvE, bigger than it was anticipated to be.

There are not going to be any ingame channels for discussing or coordinating efforts from our side, we leave that upto you and your mates. We ourselves are not eligible for the nice prizes we have made available for this contest.

Thats right, we have turned this initiative into an alligned event (Contest) towards the hulkageddon event. Every time hulkageddon starts, Hillbillageddon starts. Hillbillageddon is the name we chose for the event that has one goal, pull practical jokes on hulkageddon parties.





Contest goals

It is not the primary goal to get hulkageddon parties ganked while they are out to gank you. No, it is primarely about finding the most hilarious way of pulling of an practical joke on these hulkageddon parties which provides stomach ache of laughter for the people pulling off the practical joke on the hulkageddon parties and people visiting this site looking at your results. A counter gank is a bonus but will only enhance your chances of winning if it is a final part of an eloborate joke (scheme).

Crude example:

Having posts in many systems to scout out hulkageddon parties. Once found, setup asteroid/ice belts with a few or single exhumer(s) alligned to disappear. An X number of bantams (10 for example) are standing by to fly in. Have a sscanning team to scan out for the incoming hulkageddon party. Once detected they are closing fast, the Exhumer(s) disappear, the bantams fly in and start mining. For best effect, you should be ready with this manouvre before the party arrives, so youll have to coordinate it precisely. Once the party arrives you Point and Laugh, maybe yelling *SURPRISE*.

This is one crude example, which you may ofcourse use and finetune to your needs.
But we have come to understand you guys are way more inventive than any of us to find a hilarious way to fool these hulkageddon parties.





Prizes

The following prizes have been made available for the most hilarious practical joke pulled on Hulkageddon parties:

1st prize : a 30 day PLEX

2nd prize : 200 Million ISK

3rd prize : 100 Million ISK

(With thanks to our members who came up with money and ISK to make these prizes available)
If your corporation or alliance feel like further spicing up this prize pool, please contact "Tiger Would" by EvE-mail.




How to enter in this contest

Figure out a way to pull off a practical Joke on hulkageddon parties/participats and pull it of while hulkageddon is running. When you send in your results, provide an explanation on the "script"or "plan" you used. You also will have to capture it on video and upload it on youtube. A copy of the conversations taking place while pulling of your practical joke would enhance your chances. Your material will be reviewed and we will find out if it is fake or not.

When everything is in order your material will be put on this website and the public will be able to vote for best practical joke. Once Hulkageddon ends, Hillbillageddon also ends. The best practical joke, 1st and 2nd runner up will be awarded the before mentioned prizes


You can send in your results at: [email protected]






The gauge of this events succes (Hillbillageddon) is the amount of stomach ache because of laughter.

Have a good time!

That would work if you could actually make every single exhumer/mining barge pilot do as such.

But you can't.

Sure, can not make them dock up, but i can ask for ideas how to make fun of Hulkageddon and its participants.
While also asking to dock up. If they dont, thats fine with me, not my choice to make.

Make it so that there will only be miners in Bantams for the full duration of hulkageddon by going out mining in a bantam atleast 30 minutes a day.

Sign me up. ******* off the pirates can only be fun. And if they shoot my Bantams, who cares. I have dozens of those. No literally. I have dozens. Fully T1 Fitted, ready to be sacrificed.

Don't you think that switching from a Hulk to a Bantam is somehow "giving in"?

Nice, you dont need to sign up though, lets just keep this thread alive until the hulkageddon starts and hook up ingame than to form fleets of bantams!

Also producing loads of bantams currently and be handing them out if needed by that time. But im sure anyone can afford to lose some bantams. I am counting on loosing quite a few.

*points and laughs at the people mining in Bantams*

Why Bantams specifically? There are other really cheap mining vessels, like Ospreys, that wouldn't be worth the sec loss.

The problem with this, is that Eve has a large amount of players, usually the highbears, who do not engage with the game community in any way. They won't read this, and won't get involved.

Worse than that, they won't even know what Hulkaggedon is.

How do I know?

Because the upcoming Hulkageddon is Hulkageddon FIVE. If highbears actually read these forums and read the warnings, it wouldn't have got past Hulkageddon one.

Don't worry. I can build the Bantams I need myself. If it means we can launch a counter-griefing operation against the suicide gankers, I'm fine. I'm currently building a ****load of Bantams and Bursts for no reason other than this. I support this all the way!

Yet i am still having fun with it, and those who decide to join in with this will to, or find a nice idea themselves to have fun with it.

Cool!.

Someone made a point though, not everyone reads the forums, lets spread the word in game aswell.

And it does seem to grief a tad, reading all these posts, it is already working.
