Frigate Free For All


This Saturday Stay Frosty & A Band Apart will be hosting our 10th Annual FF4A Event in the system of Ouelletta and you are invited. Participating is easy. Ouelletta has a high-sec entrance as well as close access to multiple points of entry, so it is easy to get to. And we have three NPC stations, each of which is fully stocked with their share of over 10,000 fully fitted frigates we are going to be handing out to anyone that wants one. No matter what you do inside of Eve Online - this is your chance to experience the thrill of PvP with as little effort, risk, and loss as possible within the rules of the game.

This is why we do this every year. To give everyone the chance to experience frigate combat in Eve Online. Young, old, whatever background you come from - this event is for you. All you have to do is dock up in one of the stations and open a trade with anyone from our Alliance and they will hand you ships. Or they will open a trade with you. Either way, you'll be getting some ships to undock and have fun with.

As always there will be live streams running during the event, as well as lots of surprises along the way. Special ships will be undocking, CCP Devs might be in space, and plenty of familiar faces will be in local for you to shoot in the face. Who knows what might happen? 

All you have to do is show up, dock up, grab a free ship, and then undock and enjoy! And you can do that as many times as you like. If you are coming for the first time, let me share some advice:

• When you arrive, set your medical clone to station. We discourage podding, but accidents happen.

• When you do undock, warp off somewhere. Some of the best fights are happening at the Sun, or a belt, or off in space somewhere. Don't get trapped on the station if you can avoid it.

• If you are worried about sec status, turn your activity green and only shoot those that shoot you. It will help. And don't shoot pods! That will really help.

• We also discourage the use of bursts, smartbombs, and edencom ships in general. Feel free to report violations in local. Nothing works better than a thousand Frigates that are angry about something.

• If you want to bring something special, like a Dread or a Carrier, feel free. I appreciate knowing about it ahead of time, but that isn't necessary. You'll get noticed in local. Feeding a ship is a lot of fun and you'll get a fair amount of kills for your effort. But again, try not to fit smartbombs or ecm. Or bring an Apostle along to help you survive. No one appreciates that kind of attitude. This is supposed to be fun.

And that is really the big rule here - have fun. Every year we break our own records over and over again and I think this year has the potential to be the biggest one ever! So I hope to see you there in space with us. I'm sure there will be plenty of CCP Devs in local, famous streamers, and more players you recognize. And yes, I will be there letting you shoot me!

Be sure to share this post with your Corp and Alliance and help us spread the word.

I hope to see you there.
