10th Annual FF4A


We are one month away from the 10th Annual Stay Frosty & ABA Frigate Free For All, which will be held on Saturday April 20th from 16:00 until 22:00 in our home system of Ouelletta.

Over 10,000+ FREE fully-fitted Frigates and Destroyers will be available to anyone who docks in one of the three stations in system. Simply dock and you will be traded ships. You can then undock and have a blast fighting the rest of New Eden. And keep doing that as long as you'd like. Over and over again. If you have never participated before, you are in for a unique experience. And if you have, then you already know what I'm talking about. There simply is nothing else like it in Eve. A major fleet battle with Frigates in which everyone is trying to kill everyone else. It is madness.

Each ship has been especially designed to be flown by players of all ages. And along the way many other players will be undocking or arriving in local with special ships you can also freely engage. Some on purpose and others because they think the FF4A is a great place to get kills. So I highly recommend keeping your eyes on local chat, because there will be a lot of things happening and you won't want to miss any of them. 

As always we ask that all participants avoid podding other pilots during the event. This makes it much easier for pilots to re-ship in local and undock again. Podding will be monitored and excessive podding will be cause for flagging and organized response. We also ask that you avoid using burst jammers or smart bombs during the event. This is supposed to be a fun event for players to experience the thrill of PvP with minimal consequences, many for the very first time, so let's all try to keep that in mind.

Over the years I've heard countless stories from players about how the FF4A event was their first time experiencing PvP in Eve. These kinds of stories are why I keep doing this event each year. Within the confines of Eve Online this is the best way I could come up with to get players to try PvP and have fun while doing it - all while removing one of the barriers to that goal - personal loss. The ships are FREE, so treat them like you stole them. Have fun.

In the week leading up to the event I will have more posts available detailing more details about the event. But I wanted to once again mention it now, so that everyone can get it on their schedules. We look forward to seeing you in space. I expect that many CCP Devs will be joining us, along with streamers and other players of note. And you'll obviously have a chance to pew pew the Pirate Lord in the face and add him to your killboard.

Let's have a great event and break some more records this year!
