RvB Ganked Nights – The Holiday Extravaganza!
Winter fast approaches, bringing not only the most awesome expansion in my EVE career (since I joined at Tyrannis) but also bringing us a host of RvB Ganked nights courtesy of Mangala Solaris.
Not content with a Ganked night every few weeks, Mangala is hosting a Ganked night almost weekly until January. What is a Ganked night? A large group of us (70-100) gather in a themed hull (rifters/arty thrashers etc) and run into Nul-sec, shooting anything and everything we can till we die in an awesome fire. Then we do it again. Drunkenness and suiciding of ships is bound to occur!
The schedule and ship types are posted on his blog right HERE but here’s a copy-pasta for the lazy.
“The holiday season is nearly upon us, which means plenty of beer and plenty of time for spaceships, which when combined result in hilarious explosions, and there is no better way to partake of these two wonderful gifts than an RVB Ganked roam. Or several in a row!
Here is the program for the coming holidays:
19th November 2011 – Ganked 6: Judean People’s Front. The theme is lasers. Preferably on Amarrian ships, but you can stick them on whatever.
26th November 2011 – Ganked 7: Get back in that kitchen.Anything you want to field, as long as it is battlecruiser sized or smaller.
10th December 2011 – Ganked 8: Viagra+Crucible=Penetration.Destroyer Hulls. Post Crucible buffs.
17th December 2011 – Ganked 9: Chesnuts roasting on an open Fire(tail). Republic Fleet Firetails. Everywhere.
26th December 2001 – Ganked 10: Boxing Battleships. Will we get hotdropped? (if you cant/wont fly a BS come if anything else. Id prefer BS though.
7th January 2012 – Ganked 11: We’re going to need a bigger plane. Tier 3 Battlecruisers preferred.
14th January 2012 – Ganked 12: We come for our people. Rifter hulls. Because.
21st January 2012 – Ganked 13: Quack, Quack, Quack.Drakeswarm (and other assorted missile boats).
I will send round individual mails to the ingame mailing list “RVB Ganked” about these, as well as make posts for each on the RVB forums, and a post in the Ganked thread over on Failheap, as well as keep the RVB Ganked in-game channel updated. So guys, keep your eyes peeled, stock up on the beer and isk (isk=ships=explosions) and we will have a bloody good holiday!!!”
So join us as we pronounce system names wrong and orbit smartbombing Abaddons at 500 metres in rifters because oops.
The nights are, as usual, open to all and will be using Mumble as voice comms. Join the in-game channel “RvB Ganked” as well as a mailing list also called the same. The first Ganked is this Saturday with LASORZ. Join us in our firey glory.
