The main reason why PL owns low-sec & null-sec? SUPER-capital superiorityHow to break super-capital superiority of a particular alliance?-DREAD SPAM xD!-With the cost of 10 Titans, you can pump out 150-200 dreads (with insurance).-Fielding 150-200 well fitted Moros/Revelation = Same dps as Doomsdaying every second! Which would translate to Enough raw dps to melt a well-equipped Titan under 15 seconds under ideal conditions.Just a crazy hypothesis! =]

problem is getting enough players to fill 200dreads online at once and NOT have your superblob enemy bugout the instant your seen by scouts forming/moving,even if you do confront your enemy if they have say 30 titans if they cant escape and must fight it out in the first exchange you loose 30 dreads from DD and then they start picking your fleet apart as they can use ECM or ECM bursts to jam your fleet of a hundered dreads while they whittle you down in their ECM immune supers, plus if you managed to get 200 ships so did they, so they will have support triage carriers or a BS blob

Sympathizing with no-name lowsec scrublords? I don't know who this Urine alliance are but they sound like butthurt crybabies and perhaps they should just go back to groomign their neckbeards in their parents basement.PL Won this just like we win everything. By being The Best of the Best of the Best.We're best at PVP.Best at the meta.Best at WINNING.Pepper dies after getting into the Iron Man armor to save Tony.See? we just won again. You can't even touch this. win. win. win. we're next level.Over and out.

You sir obviously dont understand how the remote ECM burst module works and should be stoned for being so smug and wrong.Hint: read remote ecm burst description, is says "can effect ships normally immune to ewar" it doesn't 100% of the time, but i have tested it and it will sometimes break dread/supercapital locks.
Avatar
actual module test, sorry for dbl post"Emits an area-of-effect electronic burst, centered on the designated target, which has a chance to momentarily disrupt the target locks of any ship within range, including ships normally immune to all forms of electronic warfare."
Avatar
ECCM too hard to fit on? It doubles the sensor strength to well over 100, making the chance of being jammed low enough that the dreads wouldn't lose too significant a part of their damage.

lol... Marmyte....

Nice Theory in EFT but in practicality supers and titans can reposition quicker and easier then a fleet of sieged dreads. So your dps calculation becomes kind of mutt when A) you cyno in first B) non-tackled supers warp out and in both scenario's you end up with the possibility of them coming in 100km + where you damage counts is halfed.

"As the event concluded, the killboards showed Urine in first place, followed by NCdot. "And yet, you don't explain why NCDot eventually came in 13th place? What kills of theirs were disqualified?

The super was calculated at mineral cost or something, they too do not feature on the market.

And this is why you're so universally loved. Also, Quinn Dexter kills Louise.

Who gives a shit about being "kings of low sec"?

Pepper dies? Thanks for making me not waste money at the movies! You DO win and I love your sexy ass for it! My weekend is now complete!

if NC Dot got the final blow on the Nyx shouldnt their total be around 25 billion and not 4.6?

Aren't you not able to DD in Low-sec though? Thought that was the whole big deal with Asakai?

PL won't bring 10 Titans, they'll bring 10 Titans, 20 Mom's and 100 slow cats. Don't forget the fleets of Supers, Caps and sub caps that would be sitting on every major Null sec staging system just waiting to get a piece of 200 sieged dreads. You would die in a glorious fire and only a few titans would die (2-5) if your lucky.This just goes to show how much of a stranglehold groups like PL, Goons/CFC and the old HBC have on the game when they want to throw they're weight around.

New Eden should declare war on PL for that Game of Thrones shit. Next time I can spoil ANYTHING for a PL member, I will.

[Warning: TL;DR?!]Here's a counter to potential counters to dread-spam:You will need:-Tacklers + Logis (Divided into Fleet A & B, replacements ready)-150-200 blap dreads [Moros/Rev] divided equally to at least 2 different fleets-> Fleet A (First ones to go in)-> Fleet B (Reserve)-Few motherships (Fleet A)-Repcats (Fleet A) [suicide Archon/Thanny triage-fitted for instant remote repair for Tacklers/Moms]-Foxcat fleet & Herocat fleet (Fleet A)Here's what you could do:[1] Light up cyno and send in the first-wave of tacklers.[2] As soon as super-caps are tackled, send in fleet A & focus fire. The moms should also use remote ECM on hostile sub-cap fleet to provide cover for tacklers. -Initially focus on enemy super-caps and...-Primary targets should be Carriers in triage mode. [Well-fitted triage carriers can repair 80,000+ raw dps equivalent per second!][3] Send in foxcat & herocats to deal with hostile sub-cap fleets[4] After few minutes, send in the reserve dread & tackle fleet after the enemy has repositioned themselves.[5] When the the siege timer is up for the first wave, reposition them.{Would appreciate it if you can point to any flaws on this plan! thx}Also, I checked some sources with regards to ECM burst on dreads. According to them, dreads on siege modes are NOT affected by ECM bursts... However, these sources were outdated, so need someone to clarify this!

They stated they used in game values of ships, so whatever broken number is on your in-game killmail, that's what you were credited for; The nyx was 4.7b or something in that range (they even said it was wickedly far off the mark, but it's the metric they use)

Lowsec has no king. Lowsec needs no king.

Their system might not have honored that kill since it was a SD.

No one, not even PL. It was just something to do to shit in people's cheerios.
Avatar
The only people who would get butthurt are those asshats obsessed by such a meaningless title to begin with. So I agree that their cheerios need to be shat in. Proper low-seccers know better then to get wrapped up with pretentious crap like that.

CCP Eterne announced a competition in the In-Game Events and Gatherings section of the EVE Online Forums. The announcement was made at midnight UMT on May 5, in honor of the 10-year anniversary of the launch of EVE. For 24 hours, starting at downtime that day, all kills in low security space would be tallied. Any final blow by an alliance member would be added to that alliance’s tally. The winning alliance would have their alliance flag flown over the CCP building in Iceland for a month.

A player named Bones Outten posted a simple call out in the thread before the event kicked off. He pointed out that the dev fleet, in effect, nerfed a player-made event (Flight of a Thousand Rifters) that had required considerable planning and preparation.

Word of the CCP-sponsored contest spread quickly. Marlona Sky’s Flight of a Thousand Rifters contest would play a pivotal role, despite the dev fleets, in drawing a considerable crowd to low sec with the chance to kill a super capital. When the super finally self-destructed, the killmail was generated with an NCdot player, Aliventi, listed as dealing both top damage and the final blow. A twenty billion isk boost to NCdot's kill stats in low sec was going to be hard to beat.

Meanwhile, the dev fleet had been out and engaging people, using all types of ships for this purpose.  CCP Fozzie rolled out in two Gnosises, a Tengu, and a Sin. I bring up Fozzie because he played a pivotal role in this contest. You see, the devs were flying with some obscene implant sets in their pods. One of Fozzies’ pods had a full Snake and Aurora set in it. Obviously, the Aurora set (being dev-only items) has no market value, although on the open market its value would be incalculable, considering its huge bonuses to everything.

The Snakes, however, can be calculated. Each of these pods were multi-billion isk jackpots. The Urine Alliance caught on to this early in the contest and began chasing the dev fleet. Meanwhile, alliances like Razor, NCdot, and Pandemic Legion focused on Marlona’s Nyx (and the incredible number of other ships attracted by the super). By day’s end, Urine had final blows on 55 dev killmails, NCdot had a final blow on Marlona’s Nyx, PL had caught a jump freighter together with vast quantities of subcaps, and Marmite had taken out a collection of freighters and jump freighters.

As the event concluded, the killboards showed Urine in first place, followed by NCdot. So, there was a bit of consternation when CCP Eterne announced Pandemic Legion the winner. As the thread erupted in disappointment from the players who thought they had won, it seemed Bones Outten’s post, or other comments like it, had been heard by the devs organizing the event. CCP Eterne explained, several pages in, that CCP ships, mods, and implants were valued at zero as they had been spawned in using “devhax” and thus had no market value. No one was really surprised, but there was some grumbling which was responded to by a fair amount of gloating. When asked for the breakdown on the contest, CCP Fozzie posted the following (broken out by alliance name, number of kills, and isk value):

Pandemic Legion / 1065 / 30,887,875,935
The Marmite Collective / 12 / 16,482,021,476
Shadow Cartel / 380 / 13,389,148,777
YOUR VOTES DON'T COUNT / 261 / 11,529,365,665

RvB - RED Federation / 88 / 6,135,190,982
I Whip My Slaves Back and Forth / 219 / 5,980,987,667
RAZOR Alliance / 242 / 5,382,500,523
Suddenly Spaceships. / 6 / 4,968,383,746
Northern Coalition. / 25 / 4,615,503,867
Atrocitas / 115 / 4,145,931,027

Nulli Legio / 289 / 2,796,675,506
The STAR Alliance / 33 / 2,735,518,256

Further requests were made to show the numbers on devs killed, which Fozzie responded to with a hint of sarcasm:

Urine Alliance / 55 / 0
RvB - RED Federation / 18 / 0
RvB - BLUE Republic / 7 / 0
Ministry of Inappropriate Footwork / 4 / 0
The Retirement Club / 3 / 0
Goonswarm Federation / 6 / 0
Knights of Tomorrow / 3 / 0
Negative Ten. / 2 / 0
K162 / 2 / 0
Stealth Wear Inc. / 5 / 0
Verge of Collapse / 8 / 0
Red Alliance / 2 / 0
Ushra'Khan / 1 / 0
Illusion of Solitude / 2 / 0
RISE of LEGION / 1 / 0
Dominatus Atrum Mortis / 1 / 0
The Fourth District / 1 / 0
White-Lotus / 1 / 0
The Periphery / 2 / 0
Iron Oxide. / 2 / 0

Most members of Urine Alliance took the answers fairly well. Pandemic Legion’s Jeffraider eventually posted the “official” Pandemic Legion response here. It was … pretty smug. The thread petered out shortly after that.

Good job to everyone who participated. Thank you, CCP, for the contest.
