A little bit of fun and games

I dont know if you lurk crime and punishment or not but there is an interesting little thread there

From the forum:

Seeking 5 pilots to compete for one week for a grand total prize of 2 billion isk.

Your task:

1. Join a 5 man war corporation.
2. Declare war on an alliance (a selected one will be provided to you).
3. Gain 10 SOLO kills within 1 week on 10 separate targets.


- Alts are fine for scouting + setting up warp points.
- You may not be in a fleet during pvp (other then alts).
- You may not have corp mates other then your competitors.
- You must fraps each fight from beginning to end.
- Ships must be of value (no rookie ships)
- No communication utilities (voip), no communication with non alts regarding the target.
- Kills must have joined the alliance prior to the name of the alliance being released.
- You must keep an online journal of your activities.

Please post your name, age (ingame) and any other relevent information (why you should be selected) below.

The first pilot to reach 10 kills on separate targets will win the 2 billion isk.

Isk will transferred to a reputable 3rd party and then to the winner if there is one.

EDIT: Oh I forgot the most important rule. YOU MAY NOT LOSE A FIGHT.

An interesting proposal is it not? I signed up immediately and was accepted hurrah! Immediately i began to grind my sec furiously, in preperation. I feel i have nothing to lose, i dont pay for the dec fee. I get a week of PVP and if im successful 2b (which has been handed to chribba to keep hold of until the winner is announced). One of the requirements is that i keep an online journal so i thought i'd include it in my blog. So next week or whenever it starts ill be keeping a daily log of my activities. Also i may post a video at the end of the week from the fraps i get during my dec.

Keep your eyes open, things are gonna get interesting.

My Eve video is finally done

Hurrah i say. I have recently completed editing my video and have posted it up onto evetube here
and the forum topic can be found here

It took a while to do purely down to my inexperience, but despite my lazyness i managed to finally finish it. Now that ive got the general gist of making EVE videos i hope to dish out a few more. I really wanna base my videos around unused ships, so if you have any suggestions as to which ship i should explore next (mainly amarr and caldari) please feel free to let me know.

In other news i have rarely been playing any more than a hour here or there, and my nervousness in fights begins to return as i realise im outta practice. I hope to play alot more but EVE is very much a tertiary dedication for me at the moment.

I don't know if you've heard about the United km fakery scandal, but rather than me jumping on the hate the united bandwagon, i'd prefer instead to have a deep in detail analysis on whether or not faking killmails is acceptable for any reason.

Nope can't think of one.

Keep an eye out for more intellectual debates from me in the future. Fly safe folks o7
