A battle is about to take place. Immortal beings rising to face each other in order to determine the one who will conquer the skies; the one who will battle for hours and not falter; the one who will outwit his enemies... and comrades; the one who will persevere where everyone else withered away. Who will rise to the challenge and be crowned the Theomachy champion? Will Annie Gardet keep his title, or will a new challenger step forth and achieve perfection? One thing is certain, there will be bloodshed, there will be betrayals and there will be only one victor. Repercussus will be hosting this year's Theomachy on CCP’s Thunderdome Event Server with the help of CCP Logibro. Similar to last year's Theomachy, a solar system will be prepared with beacons containing ships or equipment to help you achieve victory as well as traps to help others defeat you. Hundreds of capsuleers will be fighting it out for 4 hours only to find the one true champion. There is only one way to find out if you have what it takes to achieve victory... Information Theomachy will take place on June 3rd 2017 @ 2000 EVE Time. Participants will have to join the hosting corporation "Ludus Gallicus" on Thunderdome.
There is a registration cut off time of May 25th at 20:00 eve time due to CCP needing to migrate your account over to Thunderdome. No late registrations are allowed
Here are the general rules of the event:
- There is no podding within the first 5 minutes of the event. No exceptions.
- The Overseers are not authorized to Pod anyone unless sudden death is declared
- You are eliminated from the tournament when you are podded. * Any attempt to rejoin will result in immediate removal by CCP and voiding any prizes you have earned.
- If you are podded by someone before the first 5 minutes, link your lossmail in the "Theomachy The Event" channel so we can investigate and get you back in.
- Stargates and celestials are off limits! Anyone caught at any of these will get removed from the event.
- Tactical Bookmarks up to 250km off the beacon are allowed you will become a target for Hunters.
- Structures are not a viable target. Standings in Ludus Gallicus will be adjusted to show who you can/can't shoot. Any actions towards a +10 or +5 standing target will be met with harsh consequences.
- A custom overview for the event will be provided
- If Thunderdome should go down, you will have 5 minutes to log back in from the moment the servers are back up. Purposely taking longer than 5 minutes to log back in will get you disqualified from the event.
- If you disconnect during the event, you have the time it takes our probing team to find you to log in.
- For the complete list of rules, visit the Theomachy website.
Once the event starts, capsuleers will scramble to board ships available at the different beacons. Throughout the event, new ships will be dropped at these beacons as well as anchored cans that can contain useful modules, ammo or a bunch of mining lasers. Emergent events will be ongoing throughout the event which can range from loot filled haulers flying around, to Dreads brawling it out with each other. You can earn boons from the Overseers from some emergent events ranging from a good fitted ship, immunity from hunter attacks, implants and some other surprises.
