The Drebuchet

Quality content, regardless the medium, should be celebrated.  Too often, hard work is overlooked for no other reason than the information overload that the internet provides.  That’s where FW’s Video Spotlight comes in.  Every Thursday, we’ll post a “video of the week” that was produced by the intrepid capsuleers plowing the space lanes of New Eden.  See an awesome propaganda video?  A crazy recap of fleet action?  A tutorial for those just breaking in to factional warfare?  Something else EVE-related?  Send it our way to

Rooks and Kings have always been known for incredible tactics, skilled pilots, brilliant FCs, and amazing videos. A couple days ago was no different, as they posted a rather interesting method to deal with capital ships attacking a POS. Capitals have become more prevalent recently on both sides of faction warfare, frequently seeing dreads and carriers attacking ihubs, posses and pocos. I feel that this video gives an interesting glimpse into a new way to defend against these situations as the threat gets progressively stronger. The idea behind this strategy, the Drebuchet, is to use the functionality of POS shield passwords to catapult sieged dreads into fleets of carriers, breaking the fleet apart and interrupting their ability to remote rep. Watch the video below for a better explanation of how it works.
