What's the score to beat at the moment?

Can the current top 1 or up to 5 score(s) be posted on minerbumping.com so late starters can see where the bar is?

You have no chance of winning. Just have fun popping ventures and creating tears.

I too would like to see how things are going, but I'm sure even the event coordinators don't know just yet. People will have to submit their kills and those will have to be review to make sure they are following the rules. I really doubt the event coordinators have the time to maintain an up to date list. If any participants could chime in with their current totals that would be awesome though.

Last i heard someone was past 140 ventures killed and still climbing, if you find a big fleet of them and pipebomb them you may have a chance, but beyond that no not really.

♣ Small Gang PVP, Large Fleet PVP, Black Ops, Incursions, Trade, and Industry ♣ 70% Lethal / 30% Super-Snuggly / 110% No idea what im doing ♣

Simply contact the event organizer (Anal Canal) in game and I am sure he would be happy to update you.

This makes me think the event is rigged. I doubt I'm the only one.

Looks like you need to man up from your "all participants are equal" mindset *** youngsters these days ***.

However ironically in this contest "all participants are winners". Once you see the brilliant explosion in space and hear "Your Security Status has been Lowered" you know you have separated yourself from the herd that mindlessly runs mission# 2634 / sits in a belt looking at a strip miner cycle or does yet another Forsaken Hub. You will have chosen to participate in the emergent gameplay and are on the way to prove that neither Concord nor weak-willed miners and their allies can stop you from doing the things you have set your mind to.
That being said, it is just and proper that the winners are recognized as being the best in their field, that they have put in effort and guile and have succeeded far beyond the average player.

While we cannot all be James 315, we can take to heart his message: embrace all that EVE has to offer.

That, or some people have a pretty huge head start by now.

But hey, killing miners is good for it's own sake anyway, and it's never to late to start.

Since you have access to the killboards, quit being so ridiculous.

Kills have to be unique, and as stated they are transparent since we are using an external KB for record keeping.
There are only a handful of people internally in CODE. who are participating on this extensively, most are seeking other types of targets.

As far as the leader board go as of my last count:
1st: 198
2nd: 170s
3nd: 150s
I forget the rest.

There are ventures everywhere and they can be ganked in noob ships. Why would anyone need to fake it??
