E.R.I. Announces Contest Winners

by Yaz Shanndar

(UUNN HQ) Edgar Reece Industries (E.R.I.) has announced that it has received approval for awards to be given to the winners and participants in its The Dark Encounter Arena series:  Shuttles in the Dark, which was held on 120.5.3; and Lil Fighters in The Dark, which was held on 120.5.6.

*** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

E.R.I. would like to thank the proud pilots of TRI who have made the launch of The Dark Encounter Arena not only a great bio-medical success, but also a great welcoming of our Company to your community in the Stars. In how short a time were 3 fully functioning battle POS constructed and stocked? I would love to claim E.R.I. had managed this impressive feat – but it was only with the pilots of TRI and their surprising willingness to experiment with prototype technology that allowed the first series of events in The Dark Encounter Arena to even take place.

Perhaps most surprising was the assistance that came to us from the Quantar Brotherhood. Pilot MLDeath single-handedly fulfilled the stocking requirements of all 3 stations for a nominal fee, and took the sudden-death beacon control win in the second round of Shuttles in the Dark. Pilot Nessos tested the first prototype of consciousness projection technology and has reported no ill effects! Military Legends spork and Ambrosius were the star competitors in the final round Lil’ Fighters in The Dark and took the victories with both score and beacon control.

Solrain pilots that contributed or participated include GrimGriz who cleared his criminal record to get in line with E.R.I. requirements, and then competed in all events using our experimental technology. Pilot Atlantis helped beta test the technology and set up for the event. Pilot Gucky competed in the opening round of Shuttles in the Dark  for Solrain, and Pilot DrPerky squared off against elite veterans from the other factions in Lil’ Fighters in The Dark.

Some of the best pilots Octavius has to offer also assisted in the opening of The Dark Encounter Arena. Pilot _RAZAAR_ flew alongside pilot C-note for a decisive Aptyrex win in the opening round of Shuttles in The Dark, and was leading the score in round 2 when MLDeath claimed the sudden-death Beacon. Octavian Vanguard pilot Algore represented the faction against Quantar’s Legends.

We have submitted the paperwork to the Bureau for awards for all competitors in this initial series of Dark Encounters, and extend our corporate gratitude to the others that helped make this possible – specifically the capital contributions of Nafcon and Lovemonk, silent pillars of this endeavor.

The Dark Encounter Arena is Edgar Reece Industries bringing competitive sporting to the Space Lanes, where Violence is only one path to Victory.

A number of votes came in just under the wire and the final rush resulted in Clanlord receiving the required seven votes for the Pilots Choice Award for Econ Support.medal168

Clanlord was, by far, the leading overall vote-getter with 16 votes across all categories, but only received the required minimum of seven votes in one category.  There were a total of 13 qualifying voters, casting 59 votes (not everyone voted for each category). A number of people voted without including their Pilot handle — those votes were not counted. Continue reading

Festival 118! Comes to a Close

by Yaz Shanndar

(Quantar Core) Festival 118! came to a close with some mixed reviews.  About 40 pilots were online over the four days of the holiday, but according to TRI Corporation, which sponsors the annual holiday events, pilots participation in contests and events was fairly disappointing across the board.

Conversely, there was some disappointment with TRI Corp’s event management as well.  Pilot Sinver slammed the running of Friday’s Treasure Hunt event, saying:

“I was looking forward to this all,day while at work. I’ve wasted an entire evening because quite frankly, you couldn’t organize a piss up in a brewery. The clues were useless. Don’t even bother tomorrow. Just park the ship and forget about it. A great idea, really great idea terribly executed. My entire evening wasted. Thanks guys.”
