The illustrious LowSec Campus just opened up shop in Heydieles with their new LSC Forward Operating - Heydieles. Now it is up to us to leave our mark on the region and let the locals know that Ivy is in town. For this I have come up with this housewarming Event:


The Heydieles Homewarming - Killmail Kaboom!

  • Either: Fit your own ship according to the specified Fits of DOOM.

Re: [EVENT] Heydieles Homewarming - Killmail Kaboom

Hello one and all,

I came up with this idea for a little housewarming Event for the LSC.

If you want to discuss this event use this thread.
If you have more ideas for additional Prizecategories of Slaughter please share them with me!


Current plan is to get the contracts up in HEY tomorrow or sunday and start the event Monday after DT for one week. You guys feel like one week is enough/too short?

Re: [EVENT] Heydieles Homewarming - Killmail Kaboom

Love the idea and makeup of the event.
I am however a bit surprised by your choice of fit. Let me try to guide you through my thought process to clear up this confusion:

When I fit ships for fw solo pvp, I am mainly thinking about which ships I can engage (and have a reasonable chance to win).
I would classify the merlin fit you posted as an anti-kiting fit. So according to the rock-paper-scissor of frigate pvp (as recorded in the holy book of t1 frigate pvp https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SV_sWWIinoheBaGZgL2nUVJGYwnsNJqJ/view) I can engage web-kiting and kiting ships and should avoid brawling and scram-kiting ships.
Based on my meager experience this seems quite plausable, since I lack dps against brawlers and can't control range against scram-kiters, which is even worse without Null.
I have little experience with fighting against kiting ships in anti-kiting setups, but I would imagine that the inherently slow speed and low agility of the merlin are kind of counter-productive in catching kiters. I'd say most web-kiting fits would lose against this merlin, but I have rarely encountered web-kiting fits in fw space.

So I am wondering which ships I can actually sucessfully engage, since most of my time roaming is spend looking for suitable fights. And with this fit I see only the two options of feeding or spending a long time searching for a winnable fight. And both options are not really desirable in my eyes.

Looking forward to hear your thoughts on this.

Re: [EVENT] Heydieles Homewarming - Killmail Kaboom

First of all: thanks for that link Nathan, haven't seen this one before!
Also I do need to point out that I am in no way a experienced solo pvp low sec roamer - so I might just plain be wrong with this fit.

The main idea behind it was to offer a skill-accessible brawly ship. The Merlins natural tank and damage seemed to recommend it as a good choice. The "classic" Magic Merlin with T2 high and low slots served as template and is said to be a valid option for solo operations. Of course the downgrading to Meta takes a bit out of the fit but was deemed nessecary (by me^^') to create a "level playingfield" for newbros and oldbros alike.
A quick check-in with more experienced players judged the fit as a take on "the classic Merlin" which "should offer some reasonable chances in solo pvp".

All that being said: I used this Merlin in frigate fleets and some fight clubbing and quite liked it.
That might not translate into solo pvping and possibly we all explode in a big ball of fire...but at the end of the day it is a relatively cheap fit and hopefully serves to entice some newbros (like myself) to try their hands in solopvp while at the same time maybe encourage the ambition of the oldhands to prove their skills and gain fame and glory (and prizes!).

Re: [EVENT] Heydieles Homewarming - Killmail Kaboom

I love the idea of this event, and although I am not an experienced PvP pilot, I too see some issues with using only this one fit.

While I understand the reasoning to meta the classic Magic Merlin in order to level the playing field between older and newer players, getting a solo PvP worthy performance out of this fit still might require quite a bit of cross training for newbros who primarily use other race's ships. Why not offer a fit for one frigate per race, each with race-typical weapons and tank?

This would also allow to cover different fighting styles, with each participant able to choose a ship to fit their fighting style or the situation and increase the range of suitable enemies, thus ensuring more time is spent fighting and less looking for "the right" fight.

Re: [EVENT] Heydieles Homewarming - Killmail Kaboom

Are we allowed to change module meta levels as long as we keep it T1, or are the fits fixed?

EDIT: I spoke to mike in game yesterday, fits are fixed as we need a baseline somewhere. That said, even adorable newbros should be able to fly these fits relatively decent. Since i can't fit the junk in my hangar i've hauled 8 merlins and 2 tormentors with the appropriate fit to get in on the action.

Re: [EVENT] Heydieles Homewarming - Killmail Kaboom

I have been doing some preparation in advance of the killmail kaboom actually starting. I have written down most of it in the post below and will update when i get some more action.

Also Mike, for prizes: a skin for the ship you flew the most might be fun?

Re: [EVENT] Heydieles Homewarming - Killmail Kaboom

Another two question regarding the fits:

Why does the Breacher have Navy Cap Booster 100 in the cargo for the MASB and not the Navy Cap Booster 50 ?

Why would you use Navy Cap Booster 100 for the Tormentor, I would have expected 200 for better cap stability?

And one more: I couldn't find a starting date, am I just being blind or is there none announced yet?
