Thanks for setting this up! I am a very new player and don't know how to do video or take screenshots of Eve Online but I recorded my times by watching the countdown timer and when it disappeared that's the time I used. I did multiple runs as I had never done this one before. Here are my times in the order I did them with a little AAR. I am glad that I improved. :)

Using Kestrel fit:

12:41 Too much overheat, too much nanopaste repair
11:00 Burned out AB by not confirming overheat stop, then it was slooow moving around but I was facing fast opponents. need to learn how to pulse it.
9:56 Forgot to light Mids facing Lancer. Oops. Made it out alive with 0 Armor and 1/2 Hull after I remedied that.
6:49 Smooth sailing. No major opponents this time. Did not even have to overheat I don't think.

Again, this is a neat competition and I learned so much about combat by doing it.

[Edit: is this Kestrel fit good for other Tranquil filaments?]

Great idea for a contest!

T0 Community Frigate:
  • Used the Kestrel, my best time was 5:36 (Video Link), I think I could maybe get under 5 minutes with some more practice and a 3x double Needle Tessela room layout (They take me around 1:35 to do, so 3 of them is around 4:45), we'll see if I can get that to happen before the competition ends...
  • I did 15 runs today so I won't comment on all of them but for some honourable mentions
    • Nearly 9 minute run, involved me forgetting to target the enemy for about 10 seconds in the first room, forgetting to reload, overshooting the can when attempting a drive-by looting maneuver. Just a comedy of errors really :lol:
    • On 2 occasions I almost went through the wall of death, no clouds involved either just an Ephialtes Lancer that kept burning to the wall... Probably my least favourite room simply because it takes so long for me to kill it, and it runs away from the can. If I got that one as room 1 I knew the run was already over :(
The T3 category is out of my reach, but I might try a Hookbill in T1 (still waiting for Assault Frigates) or worst case take a Kestrel in and submit a death as my entry :D I'll update this post once I have a T1 entry.

I also uploaded the T0 run to speedrun.com, however looks like it needs moderator approval and as far as I can tell none of the moderators have logged in for over a year... https://www.speedrun.com/eve_online/runs/y6v8g40m

Hello,

I will keep leaderboard in first post, I'm happy to see you already gave it a go :)
[Edit: is this Kestrel fit good for other Tranquil filaments?]
It is not - Dark weather requires less tank than others due to reduced turret range (and most enemies use turrets), so I'd be very, very careful about it :)

I also uploaded the T0 run to speedrun.com, however looks like it needs moderator approval and as far as I can tell none of the moderators have logged in for over a year...
That's a shame really - I admit, I didn't check if the category is live on Speedruns.com. Nevertheless, let's upload and we'll see if it gets to the leaderboard eventually :)


Tip: For T1 Open, it will be super fast if you make specially designed ship - T1 Cruiser can mount enough tank, so MWD + some quick weapons would actually do reasonably well in the event ;) Stuff like Vexor, Caracal - or even better, T3-designed ships, but with MWD (if they have AB originally)

Best,

Chris

T1 Open:

3:25 in a Hawk (Exotic) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lN4Q3OtFc1M

No overheating, no implants, no deadspace/faction modules. I did however use the daily booster.

Took me about 10 tries to get a good spawn.
I might continue to record for a little while to see if I can beat my best.

edit:

3:05 in a Retribution (Electrical) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJ2noUzIBmg

I did beat my record in the end. :)

Sounds fun, although i dont run abyssals. So i grabbed my default daily driver to do one single T1 run.
No drugs, no refits, no optimal kill this or that first, no reading up to make myself smart. Should be very easy to beat.

T3 Electric in my trusty Gila

Overheated missiles and AB to try go a few second faster:P
Will likely submit some more runs, hopefully with faster times!

New time - I think it is a 4:05? Now with a video from my newly created YouTube channel.

II will work on getting a recording instead of relying on a screenshot for my entry.

I ran this in my Gila, T3 Electrical Filament, no Implants, no Boosters, and no Overheating.

Finally got sub 7!

I clocked it at a 6:52
