Greetings Esteemed Community and Fellow Pilots!

CODE. is proud to present another fantastic competition running in February to the pilot who can kill the most ventures in High Sec!

Two PLEX will be provided to the player who can kill the most Ventures in High Sec starting from the 1st of February through to the 28th of February.

The rules are the same as last time, but lets review them just to make sure.

Rules!
1. Venture Pilots must be unique and different players.
2. Kills must be made in High Security Space (1.0 - 0.5)
3. Anyone can participate - You do not need to be a member of the Code Alliance or The New Order.
4. Rookie Systems are off limits. (A rookie system is defined as THIS LINK HERE
Prizes (I am sure there will be more as this evolves) -

1st place - Two 30 day Pilot license extension

2nd place - A 30 day Pilot license extension

3rd place: 315 million ISK

4th: Secret ship!

BONUS: There will be a gift of something special from myself for the best story involved!

I look forward to another round of content creation for Eve online courtesy of Code Alliance and am glad everyone will enjoy this player added content!. Remember this is for all players, young and old, CODE and not! Just go out and have fun!

I am the guardian of the gates, no venture shall pass!

How fitting it is that February is the month of purging highsec of ventures. Thank you for creating this content AC

There once was a ganker named tisi

Thats our Tisi!

She doesnt need eyes in the back of her head, shes got the whole head back there!

I cant wait to see the 4 year old chars with 1B pods mining in highsec with ventures, getting popped like popcorn!!

Fire up the forges and dust off the venture BPOs, its time to show mining frigates some love in Febuary Big smile

Is there a third party (known third party) that has these assets and can verify? No offense but trusting CODE is a bit of a low priority.

True, however the OP statement says,

I am assuming this will increase. The amount in prizes that is. As a side note 3 plex is not much in value.

True, they are not. My point is a majority of CODE has scammed in the past and currently scam in eve. So what is the point in competing in this event when the hosts are not trust worthy? Like if I attempt to win this event I have no guarantee I will see those plex ever. tl;dr, CODE has not been trustworthy in the past and currently are not.

Even 1 plex is a huge value compared to the price of hundreds of ventures.

While it would probably be a good idea to get an independent 3rd party on this, keep in mind that most of the participants will be CODE members, and in all likelyhood it will be an intra-organization thing. I have never seen agents scam each other before, and I believe the assumption is that the vast majority of competitors will be agents of the New Order. This is being posted here to inform any agents outside of CODE. and invite outsiders to participate in ganking opterations or encourage them to become agents themselves.

Or you can talk to the previous winners of the first Venture contest. And aside from youngest, they all were paid promptly. The youngest prize was delayed for a couple weeks due to some issues. But all were paid out within the 3 days.

As a highsec miner, and someone who doesn't really like CODE, I approve of this whole thing.

Encouraging people to gank specific ships in high sec that will most likely be piloted by new players in the name of sport and / or competition.

Each to their own i guess.

Once again, this competition serves proof as to why Code as an alliance, will always be beneath Helicity Boson and not worthy of sniffing his boots never mind being granted permission to polish them.

Cut through the jargon, and this "competition" is ultimately a drive to blow up new players fresh out of the starter systems in the hope of tears.

You're welcome to argue i'm wrong in my assessment.

You might get the odd newbie (and if I do, I will make certain to tell them where they can get their next free Venture from running one of the career agents they haven't run). I'm pretty sure most CODE. people will do the same, and I'd encourage non-CODE. participants to also do this. Those newbies are not the target.

Ventures are the #1 most common ship banned for botting according to CCP Security figures released at last Fanfest.

If it is tears you want, you don't shoot new players - they tend to just express confusion. You should instead shoot career highsec players in 0.8 and higher systems. That is where the finest vintage of tears comes from - the 3 year old character who is "peacefully mining".


AC - Can you state in the OP a reminder that rookie systems are off limits, as are gates leading into them (e.g. the Vittenyn side of the Vittenyn-Trossere gate)? CODE. pilots will (probably) all know this, but the people we really want this contest to appeal to - 0-6 month old players with no experience in PVP, ganking or otherwise - may not know that they will get slapped by CCP if they pop Ventures in those systems.

Also, it wouldn't hurt to post a fit or two for just those rookies that want to Venture into ganking.

Yes thank you for mentioning the rookie systems. I will edit and update for clarification.

Also the reason I like to promote this contest is so that newer players are able to get involved into other aspects of the game rather than the simple grind of "ISK to Ship" that usually seems to be. I hope that this will provide a good time for all!

And I do agree about CODE. player informing about what happened and how to prevent it, education is a basic foundation of EVE.

I won fourth prize in the last competition. I can verify my prize was delivered promptly.
