[EVENT] EVE Uni Fight Club (UFC) - Stacmon, Weekly on Thursdays @ 19:00EVE

Post by Elan Vital »

EVE Uni Fight Club (UFC)

Image

FIGHT CLUB HOSTS: Arkady Marten and Élan Vital
LOCATION: Stacmon, The Octagon UFC Arena (will be available in Stacmon Bookmark Folder)
WHEN: Weekly on Thursdays @ 19:00EVE
DURATION: 2 hours
COMMS: Mumble, Foxtrot Fleet Channel
FORMAT: Tech 1 empire frigates with Tech 1 modules (meta 4 or below), and base Tech 1 ammunition and charges; the one exception being T2 Damage Control modules are allowed.

RULES: Complete rules and fits
PVP EXPERIENCE: None. No previous PvP experience required!

What if we told you that you can grab a free ship and join us to learn about small-scale PvP in a controlled and supportive environment? What if we told you it will be in the comfort of Stacmon? What are we talking about?

Image

We're talking about Uni Fight Club. Using UFC-outfitted™ T1 frigates available free on contract, you'll get to engage in 1 vs 1 PVP combat with other Unistas. At any point, you can concede the fight and ask for combat to stop. After each fight, we'll discuss what went well, what didn't go well, what could've gone better, how to get more from the fit, etc. Practical experience with immediate feedback and discussion and a no-podding rule--this is the most risk free, ISK-riskless, and painless way to learn PVP. And lest we forget to mention it, it's a whole lot of fun.

WHAT IF PVP ISN'T WHERE I SEE MY EVE JOURNEY GOING?
We would say that is all the more reason to participate. Fighting doesn't only involve attacking; it requires defense as well. Knowing how to defend yourself does not mean you ever plan on attacking someone; rather, it means that you are that much more ready should you be attacked someday. For example, understanding how tackling works and how one may escape tackle are not just useful for players who like PVP.

WHAT CAN I FLY? HOW DOES IT WORK?
Just take a look at the complete rules and fits. You can also find the UFC fits in-game. Simply open the Fitting window, click on the fit browser button (the wrench), then under Hulls & Fits use "UFC" as your search term. You be able to see all the UFC T1 frigates as well as simulate them.

CAN I BRING MY OWN SHIP?
While you can come and make use of free ships, you may also bring your own fits with the original UFC format or perhaps a fit that you've been experimenting with that you want to try out. Of course your fit must follow the same rules as the UFC fits: Tech 1 empire frigates with Tech 1 modules (meta 4 or below), and base Tech 1 ammunition and charges. The one exception to this rule is that you may use Damage Control II modules. You can use your Uni Fight Club experience to help you become more familiar with fitting.

NOTE: If you do bring your own ships with fits that you like, your losses will be eligible for Uni Ship Replacement Program (SRP) reimbursement as long as you are within the Uni SRP rules and SRP limits.

Please join us in Stacmon on Thursdays at 19:00 EVE. Let's blow up some ships and learn together.

For fun! For glory! For our beloved Uni! We hope we will see you there.

It's only because of the excellent groundwork that people like you and other Unistas built, Red Fish. The foundation has already been laid and we are fortunate to have a fantastic playbook to work from. Thank you.

Man, I was looking forward to this, but it's sunny and 60 degrees F. I'm outside today.

This would especially be good, as we've got a war declaration against us now.

Oh well. RL > EVE. Amirite?

Right?

Been to two fight clubs and had a lot of fun. It's low pressure, with great discussion afterwards. Some really knowledgeable people around that can answer your questions, or just give great advice. If you're interested in PVP at all you'll find something to learn.

Thanks a lot, see you next week!

I'd actually never had been to Fight Club before having the good fortune of getting to host it with Arkady Marten, so you and I have attended the same number of times. I think you hit upon one of the best parts of it, at least in my humble estimation. You never know who is going to show up to Fight Club. I absolutely could not wait to give it my best try and then get my rear kicked by some of the really fantastic pilots that show up (some highlights were getting to fight Red Fish, Arps 331, and JPNS). And afterward, they give you really insightful feedback from a first person perspective. Outside of actual in-the-wild PVP, there is no better way to train.

Plus, what is better than blowing up spaceships?

P.S. My current wish list of people I want to fight in UFC
  • Thomas Ownz
  • Uriel Takarmminni
  • Yuri Levnik
  • Mongo the Mechanic
  • Sparklez Ripper
  • Tal Tracyn
  • Rogue (whichever toon he happens to be on)
  • Manda Doomslayer
P.P.S. For Sparklez Ripper and Tal Tracyn, beyond wanting to fight each of them, I'd love to see them fight each other as I was lucky enough to witness their 1v1 at last year's "Shoot the Management"...REMATCH!

It was really cool to do fight club again! Thanks Arkady and Elan for organizing, it was a lot of fun. It was cool to see everyone flying a big variety of ships - I think we had fights from every frigate in the UFC lineup. Looking forward to the next ones!

Great fun today! Thanks for organising it and coordinating it. I will have to see if I can come up with something as odd as the sentry drone Tristan for the future.

Thank you for attending and I'm quite proud to have been defeated by a sentry drone Tristan.
