Assault Frigate Tournament - Winners!

Tournament is over, and the winners are:

1st Place - Trony (Wolf) of the Caldari Independent Navy Reserve. He also has the choice of either a Domination Warp Disruptor or a Domination Warp Scrambler, courtesy of Vsmit

2nd Place - Lachesis VII (Retribution) of the Python Cartel

3rd Place - Andrea Skye (Retribution) of the Python Cartel

Secret Prize #1 - Bourreau of the Tuskers, for the most gank orientated fit, with just a Damage Control and a Medium Shield Extender for a tank on his Wolf.

Secret Prize #2 - Causticum of the Tuskers for the youngest player to win a match, which he did by beating Sintei Ruhl's Wolf in his Jaguar.

Secret Prize #3 - Lachesis VII of the Python Cartel for actually properly using a Retribution, winning his matches through careful kiting.

Secret Prize #4IEATCRAYONS of the Python Cartel, for the most interesting fit, using a Medium Shield Booster as well as Rocket Launchers on his Hawk.

Most Original Setup - Golden Helmet of the Python Cartel, for his active tanked Vengeance with a MWD as well as 2 Energy Neutralizers.

The prizes will be contracted to the winners in the next 48 hours.

Each fight was frapsed as well as Ventrilo being recorded. Expect to see videos and audio files in the next few days!


  1. Can't wait for the videos. Make sure you include the vent recordings as well. :D

  2. YAY, I get a Succubus!

    Also, for my Vengeance, I want to mention that i had a full LG Talisman set plugged in too, including the omega. That reduced the cycle time from 6 seconds to 4.3 seconds, or 3.7 seconds if I overload.

    Cap stable too, running both neuts + rep + web, or the rep + MWD + web.

    In theory, it worked well. It could annihilate anythings capacitor in a good 10 seconds. In practice, if some bastard Ishkur decides to exploit your Thermal hole with Hobgob 2's, there's not much you can do. It was worth a shot :P

  3. Many thanks for the good fights, and the good character showed by the Tuskers, and everyone else involved.

    Sul, I've gone ahead and added your blog to our list of "liked" blogs on

    Oh, and did you mean to give me the Succubus? Thought Secret Prize 3 was supposed to be a slicer?

    Also, was the prize specifically "using a retribution properly"? Or was it "using a ship as intended"?

  4. Many thanks to Sulei, to the donators and to all that took part. It was great fun, especially the soundtrack. We should make a compilation out of it.

    me wants moar!!!1

  5. I'm thinking of putting all those tracks beneath their corresponding video's. (You did save them, Sulei? I didn't. :P )
    Now only to decide how to present this...
    As a lenghty video of all things tied together, or just the highlights, or...

  6. a few ideas:
    highlights in cronological order, using fade-ins and fade-outs to skip some bits and make it more interesting to watch.

    make use of the table that Tressin created as a visual help, maybe highlighting the relevant section just before each fight shown on video.

    One last idea, maybe a bit laborious: get videos from the pilots who frapped their own fighs and edit some bits in to give a different perspective (always with the goal of making it more interesting to watch).

    Only my two iskies :)

  7. Great stuff!

    I hope everyone had a top notch time and well done for putting this all together!
