[EVENT] Small Gang Competition Month

Image

INTRODUCTION


Hello everyone, it seems like a while since we’ve had one of these, so in honour of the LSC’s new home in Eugales…let’s get some small gangs flying!

The aim here is to connect all bloodthirsty pilots with other similar minded folks in your TZ, then offer many glorious prizes to get you working together to create mayhem.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

All you need to do is put your details in the thread below, including:

- Primary Timezone/Usual flying times
- Rate your PvP experience from 1-5, where 1 is a newbie with no kills, and 5 is an unbeatable solo slaughter machine
- A few sentences about your piloting skills / PVP experience

People can form their own groups from the folks who post in this thread, and I can also help put together teams of people from similar TZs. It’s best to aim to mix a few more experienced players in with people who are still a bit new to small gang flying, so would be great if any Vets want to step up!

I’ll keep track of participants and teams in this Google sheet so you can check here as well for who’s signed up and who’s still looking for a team:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

COMPETITION RULES & PROCEDURES

The E-Uni rules still apply for this tournament, including the ROE.

The tournament will run from 28th April (next Sunday) at downtime until 28th May at downtime (though teams can enter late too)

Teams can be made up of 6 pilots maximum

Each team should make their own thread in the AAR forum labelled “[SMALL GANG COMPETITION] Team Name.” As the event goes on you should then add:
• A list of all team members.
• Links to all killmails and losses on zkillboard.com.
• Total kill and loss counts.
• The total ISK value of all kills and losses.
• The most expensive team kill.
• The most expensive team loss.

In order for a kill to count for this competition:
• It must include at least two team members on the killmail (to maintain the team nature of this activity)
• Cumulatively, team members must account for more than 50% of the damage applied not counting NPC damage (no killmail whoring!)
• No Noobships, Pods or Shuttles
• No friendly fire

Killmails that have other Ivy League members on them that are not in your team do not qualify (This is to encourage people to go out independantly, rather than just join big fleets).

There is no restriction on location here. Feel free to hunt out kills across HS, LS, NS or Wormholes.

Likewise, no restrictions on ships or strategies you can use. Go wild! So long as its within the usual Uni rules.

COMPETITION CATEGORIES AND PRIZES

*Initial list – more categories may be added*

Most Kills: 1 Faction Cruiser for each team member
Most Expensive Kill: 1 Faction Cruiser for each team member
Most ISK Killed: 200M ISK each

Most ISK Lost: 50M ISK each
Most Expensive loss: 50M ISK
Most Lossmails: 5 T1 frigate for each team member

At discretion of a jury:

Best AAR: 1 Pirate Frigate for each team member
Most successful fight while outnumbered and/or outshipped: 1 Pirate Cruiser for each team member
Most Surprising kill: 100 Assorted Exotic Dancers

FINAL NOTES

Competition rules and rewards aside, this is intended to be a fun way to get us blowing things up and practicing small gang PvP. So please don’t take the competitive aspect too seriously.

If anyone else wants to donate to the competition rewards I will happily supplement our present rewards and competition categories.

Re: [EVENT] Small Gang Competition Month

Primary tz: ustz (0000-0900)
Experience: 4-4.5
I have been pvping for around 7-8 months. I’d say I’m getting pretty decent compared to where I was a few months ago (just starting to 100% depend on manual piloting). I love flying frigates and cruisers. Just getting into liking blingy stuff. I mainly do frigates in lowsec and cruisers in nullsec (kitey nullshit especially). I am happy to partner with nearly anyone who is willing to put some time and isk into learning with me :)

Favourite frigate: Dual Locus Retribution, Kitey Tristan, Application Purifier/Nemesis
Favourite Destroyer: Rocket dual-ancil Jackdaw
Favourite cruiser: Orthrus, Cynabal

Re: [EVENT] Small Gang Competition Month

Timezone: USTZ
Experience: 1.5
I really suck, like to solo, but at more than happy to fly around with some small gang as well. Also go on fleets as time allows. Anyone I fly with expects to see some silly fail antics on my part.

Re: [EVENT] Small Gang Competition Month

USTZ. Typically 0000 or 0100 until 0400 or 0500 - something like that.

- Rate your PvP experience from 1-5, where 1 is a newbie with no kills, and 5 is an unbeatable solo slaughter machine
Will give it a solid 3.

- A few sentences about your piloting skills / PVP experience
Probably the best with brawly frigates in lowsec, but some experience with kitey frigates, but not as good at it. A bit of time in interceptor and interdictor as well, but sort of novice-ish with those ships.

Re: [EVENT] Small Gang Competition Month

Timezone: USTZ
Experience: I would say 3 to 3.5 in theory but only a 1.5 in execution.
Been pvping it up for my year long tenure in game. Pretty bad at solo PvP but not too bad in small gangs with face punching frigates orbiting at optimal. Manual piloting? Whats that? lol
Favorite Ship : Comet
Favorite Skin : Police
Favorite Activity : Cuffing the pirates and plexers and pew pewing them down!

Re: [EVENT] Small Gang Competition Month

I think I would be interested in this as well. Was looking for some small gang PvP options for some time.

Primary Timezone: USTZ, 02:30 - 06:00
PvP experience: 2. Eager to improve it, though.
A few sentences about your piloting skills: I participated in couple of fleets and I do generally enjoy smaller gang PvP. Overall, I would not say that I have too much experience in practice, but I do have some experience in theory.

Re: [EVENT] Small Gang Competition Month

Woop! Lots of pirates!

Looks like we already have enough for at least one USTZ team, but still room for more!

Come on EUTZ! Despite their modesty there’s three experienced (and really friendly) guys signed up already, and I’m sure they’d be delighted to help introduce some newer players to the joys of small gang fighting!

If you have any interest at all in learning PvP, this is honestly one of the best ways to do it! I promise you’ll learn more in 30mins of roaming in a small gang than in a week’s worth of fleets.

Re: [EVENT] Small Gang Competition Month

Primary TZ: EUTZ (1700-2200)
Experience: 2.5 - 3.0
I only rarely fly solo/micro gang but am experienced when it comes to fleets, however much that counts for this.
I enjoy flying anything that isn't basic press F1 DD, can fly anything smaller than a Cruiser decently and love Bombers, Booshers and T3Ds

Re: [EVENT] Small Gang Competition Month

Primary TZ: EUTZ (1700-2200)
Experience: 1.5 - 2
My solo PVP career is limited to looking for plexers around the black rise area . I've mostly flown T1 frigates, but have a few occurences where i upgraded to a faction frigate. Next to that i do have a bit of experience in fleet fights (both F1 monkey and logibro + occasional scout). I'm hoping i can team up with some other EUTZ people to encourage my solo PVP carreer!

Re: [EVENT] Small Gang Competition Month

- Primary Timezone/Usual flying times
USTZ-East
usually free from 0200 on, but sometimes 2300 on, and 1100-1300. kinda depends on the week, really.

- Rate your PvP experience from 1-5, where 1 is a newbie with no kills, and 5 is an unbeatable solo slaughter machine
2....I rarely solo hunt, currently prefer smaller group pews

- A few sentences about your piloting skills / PVP experience
somewhat adequate pilot that has been EVEing for about a year, can't manual worth #$@, working on scouting and tackle skillz. have pewed in low, null, and J-space. strong on enthusiasm, but weak on keeping range and fast reaction time, and therefore weak on staying alive. no logi skills, working on training for bubbles.

prefer to fly fast and small: frigs or dessies.

I've got a decent amount of solo roaming experience in frigates, nothing larger though as of yet. Been on a good number of Uni fleets so far, and have scouted twice.
