Today’s spotlight is a little unconventional, as it’s something that isn’t actually finished. One Man Crew is a new project that is trying to consolidate various solo PVP videos into not only a montage video, but a competition with various tiers of rewards and categories. Judges for the contest span from major null-sec alliances to pirate corporations, and the prize pool has grown from small rewards in the billion isk range to 10 billion isk for the grand prize, 3 billion isk and pirate battleships for winning various categories and more.
Rooks and Kings has 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.
Today’s spotlight is a little bit late due to the holidays. I’ve posted up a video for running missions in Faction Warfare. Over the years, I’ve had to show people numerous times how to earn money after they scoff at me saying they can easily earn 100-200 million isk an hour in a bomber with a low SP character. All that training made me decide that it was finally time to do a video, showing how to get missions, optimizing routes, running them etc. I’m on the Caldari side, so this is largely biased to running missions for that faction, but the general concepts remain the same. If you have information or builds regarding the other races, please comment below and I will work to keep this thread updated with relevant information for all sides.
