'CONVOY'

Up & Coming freighter events called ‘CONVOY’. Three routes on different nights are planned:

Stage #1 'Where's the Cheese?' (Hive to Red Rum cargo run)
Stage #2 'Tin Cups for the Drinks' (Rock n’ Roll to Enchanted)
Stage #3 ‘Bomb Runners!' (Aquila to Dune)

Thursday, Jan. 6 at 9pm EST - Stage #1; CONVOY - 'Where's the Cheese?'

Introduction:

There’s a big party down south; rum & crackers are ready but ‘Where’s the Cheese?’ This event is for enjoying company on a long cargo run; How? Convoy! This is a timed event with opportunity for many freighters to travel together & fight off any attackers along the way. All registered enemies of the convoy are called Scavengers; (but, blood enemy freighters may attack each other in the freighters too). Beams available. please register & try to be ready ½ hr. before event.

1. Thursday Start time – 9:00 pm EST sharp – Purifier_M will say ‘GO’ only when all participants are recorded & loaded with cargo; it’s not a race – lots of time to make the run. Just survive enemies.

2. Convoy – Freighters only! (Maru, Camara, Galaxy, Spaceball, Soul Train, Dependable, Stresstest, Saucer; etc. (Admin will approve according to freighter list ‘class of ship’ UV Tools; ex. Command is not a freighter for this event). Organize & plan attack strategies before the start. There are 3 jump gates out of the Hive (be careful around npc’s LOL)
Escorts allowed – among the Scavengers. Simplifies the event to have 2 participants – any escorts must register as a Scavenger & follow those rules. No escorts in The Hive at start.
Convoy Gather in The Hive (cargo on Planet Aiur) for the cheese & cracker run to Red Rum (base 101 ways to die); load up with cheese. Any route possible can be used – the 90 minute time permits 3 choices from Hive. This is not a race against each other - it is a survival to make a successful delivery (maybe 2 for the bonus). We must have the cheese for our Rum & Crackers Party!!

3. Enemies – ship of your choice! All enemies called ‘Scavengers’. Register & tell what ship you are using. No enemies in The Hive & stay 15 k from the jump gate in the next systems. This gives the convoy time to get moving. No fighting in The Hive. Scavengers meet in Dark Shadows, or New Oslo or Inflamme,15k from the Hive Jump Gate. (All other jump gates, attack as normal). This gives time to get the convoys rolling.

4. Prizes:
Convoy: $50 mill participation; $50 mill for a successful run in the one hour. $50 mill Bonus if you return to Hive with Crackers in the 90 mins! (plus you get to sell that cargo). Having a 2nd freighter ready in The Hive, loaded & parked at a Jump Gate, will help restart faster if you are killed.

Scavengers(from 4 factions or pirates/merchants): $50 mill participation; $20 mill per killed freighter in convoy. The top killer of freighters gets bonus $50 mill.

5. Timed event ends 90 min. from start. This will determine who succeeded in delivery of cargo. The event will stop exactly 90 min. after the start & determine prizes. Please do not leave server until you receive it.

6. Those who can run multiple ships are allowed – the enemies will no doubt have ships ready in many systems. But only one $50 mill Participation will be paid.


Pre-registration is encouraged to attempt the 9:00 pm sharp start. Contact me asap if you plan to attend, so I can start the list. Then on Thursday the list will be updated with those showing up. Thanks for your participation.

As Purifier, I will:
1. Have a list of all participants - $50 mill will be paid during the event.
2. Re-locate to Red Rum 101 ways - counting the freighters coming in
3. Record all kills that appear onscreen to verify participants killed & by whom
4. Re-locate back to Auir in the Hive to record any freighters who make the return run.
5. Determine top Freighter killer for bonus $50 mill.

4:00 Am for me :(
Even i especially would wake up, my woman will cut out my head before the konvoy excort to do so

The idea is great, but impossible for Europeans. (the same is for some other srvr evens :(
Admins, sirs, in future, is there a way to make some events in both suitable times - for example, 10/11/12:00 Am for US will be early evening for Europe which is suitable time - especially on weekends for both US and EU

Bobby, mate, u r right, but see:
these from 2:00 and 4:00 EST are deep evening for me; as a family old man, i cannot afford myself to play these times ; Fighted madnes isnt for me, as well as some other europeans, bcs our lag is 200-250; i found that there's impossible to fight with small fast fighters with such ping (and win).
tHE ONLY suitable is CAP GUNS ONLY .
but we always miss U SANK MU BS (a great event, but it happens after midnight in Europe:(
also we will miss this new great CONVOY (2-4.00 morning in Europe) :(

If u noticed, i used the word SAME (begging U admins to try to ajust SOME events to both US and EU)- i meant preferably these two most interestng ones- SANK BS, and CONVOY.

but
i figure that UV is an American server,i have no reason to complain, also i see how U admins try to adapt the events for the other continents too - thank u:)

ZtO****

So this means that all folks who run multiple ships, be they Freighters or Scavengers, will only get 50 mil whether or not they successfully complete the run, or if they kill a freighter or 3 as a Scavenger?

Or does that mean whether or not you run multiple ships, you get only 50 mil for participation and then you also get the prize for kills or a successful run?

yeah I know, I hang out with too many lawyers so I tend to think like this. But questions must be asked and answers sought! Forsooth!! uv30
