Cannonball 250 Coming Soon™

Recommended Posts

I have started working on planning a cannonball 250.  i did one about this time last year and im going to adopt the same format.  its for 3.5y of warp to me.  Sparta in his Poobah glory as the provider of our SRP has comitted to 15b for prizes.  which is absolutely outstanding.  I also have some other stuff laying around thats been donated including some optimal bs hulls some faction mods and i think some faction dcu's.  Its prolly going be in about a month TBD as my work schedule allows.

Tenatively Im planning on the grand prize to be a faction fit bowhead with a 6% hull implant and a faction dcu should be a ballparked around 550-600k ehp ish.  As always with all of our events all prize donations will be accepted.  Donations of isk and or prizes can be sent to Corp Warp To Me Incursions with the CEO of Logan Toruk.  

As changes happen I will be editing this post and working on an official prize list. Be prepaired for sandman being an evil bastard.  Last 250 I sent people island hopping.... and im tempted to again.  For prizes of this caliber the risk should match the rewards.  Any questions can be posted here or mailed to myself.

UPDATE 10/4 - As of today im going to tenatively set the date for 10/22 prolly ball parked around 2100 (ish).  I am working on the route and am making considerations on hulls. I will get any hull restrictions published this weekend.  The last 250 we did Canes and myrmidons picked by canyon and sparta.  Was great fun.  

UPDATE 10/22 2000 Server. Starting line wil be announced approx 1900 Server somewhere within 2-5j from Amarr.  

There will be no hull restrictions, anything goes.  What happens between the checkpoints stays between the checkpoints.  Be smart and DONT use your incursion clone.  This is NOT an srpable event even if you choose to bring an SRPable ship.  

FAIR WARNING!  Sparta has commited to 15b for prizes.  This route... Some of my best evil genius at work.  Plan accordingly.  You can not run this route thru hs alone.

can we limit this to t1 battleships only?

we did battleships before and it was pretty terrible on a 100j course.  i cant imagine how long a 250 would last.  lol

I thought we were using our most expensive Incursion BSs with 6% + ascendency clones?? No?

i like the cruiser cannonball thought, but maybe just 75-100. imo no limitation on types of cruisers though, anything flies.

honestly it wasnt that bad.  one had more slots one had more baked in agi and warp speed ended up very balance.  it litterally came down to i asked sparta and canyon for thier favorite hulls and they both picked a bc.  was perfect for that event.

also do we have to finish in the same ship we started in or just the same class of ship as we started? like if i bring a drake and try to finish in a orca (apart from losing) will i be disquilified? and is death death out of the race?

So you're saying anything goes as long as I put an X in each checkpoint local?

Yeup.

 

Not only does death not disqualify you... getting yourself killed might be a valid tactic.
