My understanding is that the rules are as follows:

ISD Buldath wrote:
This will be a 1v1 Battleship Duel.

No Implants, No Faction, Limited to T1 and T2 Modules and Ammunition.
No Micro Jump Drives, no fleet Boosts.
Limited to Tech 1 and NAVY Faction battleships.
The first to die, or warp off, loses.

Winner gets the crown of King of the Forums!


So no blingy fits. and no MJDs. Although not expressly mentioned, I'm assuming that this applies to MMJDs as well. Also, combatants are suposedly warping to a celestial at a range of their choosing, so close-range fits will be at a distinct disadvantage.

I've sent a fit and tactics to Max. I will not be sharing here because OpSec.

I think it's time for the Court of C&P to choose it's position. I trust Bronson's coaching. Let's assume our champion is set.

Now, the other matter:
The general discussion aristocrats fancy themselves our rivals.


I wonder if there would be value in compiling a list of these "knights of general discussion", and ensuring they are all wardecced before this little tournament?

Maybe we could field a few "code hooligans" into the crowd to pop any loudmouths who require extra attention?

I feel like Max has his fight... but this fight is ours.

The work police won't let me read the flyer. Is there a date and location set?


Also, I would be willing to show up in a thanatos to RR the mighty combatants between rounds. I'm fairly certain I have at least one that I haven't loaned out.

January 30, 02:00 Eve time.
Location not yet disclosed or I'm too stupid to figure it out.

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

CCP has a tradition of using Old Man's Star for shenanigans when the mood takes them, so I'm betting its gonna be there.

And, of course, Ancient Eve Tradition states all duels should be at the sun...........

Cool

PS
Saeger...no MJD's. Replace with MWD or burner and its a still a good fit, tho.

Everything in EVE is a trap.

And if it isn't, it's your job to make it a trap...:)

I came up with something very similar, but here's a few things:

Don't use Furies unless you've got a painter, rigor, or guidance comp. They'll do less damage to armor battleships because of their massive explosion radius.

Consider fitting a sensor booster or damps will hose you.

Speaking of damps, don't forget to pack FoFs. And maybe fit a damp of your own.

As Mike pointed out, no MJDs are allowed for this particular match. Since you don't need to close range to hit your target (and because Navy Scorps are slow AF), I'd swap it for an AB for damage reduction instead of an MWD.

This one will sound really weird and I'd pretty much never do it in an actual combat fit, but find a way to drop that CoProc for cargo expander. At the rate you'll potentially be guzzling 800s, you'll need the space. It'd suck to lose because you ran out of 800s.

I think the fit I sent Max (not a Navy Scorp BTW) would fare pretty well against this, but it'd be a long-ass fight.

Who does it normally Dom?

If no one, then I think a 'neutral' from the Community Team or CCP, provided they know what they're looking at/ talking about. Which rules me out.

If anyone gets a decent capture of it, let me know; I'll be trying too, but may not have all the angles covered..

No one usually does, but the AT has the guy with the glasses and his ORE cap (forgive me but his name escapes me T_T)
Would be funny to have an AT cast for this :D
