A New Mining Venture

Image

Retribution saw a lot of new additions to the Eve universe. From bounty hunting to new ships, it was a good chunk of updates, a veritable mix of shiny additions and old mechanic balancing. But most notably for miners, a new mining frigate was provided. The ever sleek (and clearly Homeworld inspired) Venture frigate.

She may have a small hold, but her speed more than makes up for it. Take this build, for instance;

[High]
miner II
miner II
prototype cloaking device I

[med]
survey scanner II
1mn afterburner II
medium shield extender II

[low]
mining laser upgrade II

[rigs]
small polycarbon engine housing I
small low friction nozzle joints I
small core defense field extender I

[drones]
2x hobgoblins II OR 2x Miner Drones

cap stable
1400m/s
2159 ehp

She isn’t a tank like a hulk, but she can move more than fast enough to be able to AFK happily without worrying about bump. Even ganking a Venture can be a bit of a challenge. A miner named Rezard came up with a slightly tankier (but still nimble) mining setup;

[Venture, Rezard’s Special]
Mining Laser Upgrade II

Adaptive Invulnerability Field II
Medium F-S9 Regolith Shield Induction
Medium F-S9 Regolith Shield Induction

Miner II
Miner II
Prototype Cloaking Device I

Small Processor Overclocking Unit I
Small Processor Overclocking Unit I
Small Anti-EM Screen Reinforcer I

Mining Drone II x2

A good tank that’s still capable of leaving your Venture moving fast enough to avoid being bumped, and speed+shield tanked to hold off potential ganks. On top of that, it mines 800m3 per minute. For a frigate, that’s not bad at all.

The Rumors of Our Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

We’re still around, we’re still watching, we’re still learning. We have not given up on hindering the people preventing you from playing your game your way.

But real life must come before a game, despite passion of said game. Families need cared for, jobs need completed, things need written, and lives need lived. In the case of stopping the bumpers, patience is a virtue. E-mail us at proveldtariat@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns, and we’ll try to get to you ASAP.

More posts to come!

COMING SOON. Bumper Dodge!

 

During my time flying through New Eden, I have seen many resistant miners fighting against the bumpers and their extortionist ways. One emerging “game” coming from this is Bumper Dodge! Much like dodge ball, miners are counting out how many times they dodge the bumpers while laughing at their attempts.

So now, with funding and steam within the movement, we are proud to officially sponsor BUMPER DODGE!

While this is a working title and rules will be reviewed, here’s the gist of it. Each week will be a new contest. To enter, simply record your bumper dodging as proof of your effort. Place the recording on a Youtube account and e-mail us the link at proveldtariat@gmail.com. Each week, we will select a winner of Dodge Bumper should they prove the dodged the most bumpers! Each new winner each week will be give 50 MILLION ISK !

The last week at the end of each month will be a Dodge off! While the normal contest will still run for others, previous winners for the month will participate in an escalated competition. Three previous winners will play hard for the right of the title Dodging Hero! The miner who gets the MOST dodges in this event will not only earn the title of Dodging Hero, but win 150 MILLION ISK!!

But that’s not all! Oh hell no, we’re not done yet. Provide screenshots of eve mails or chat screenshots of bumper rage or tears to us for incrementally increasing rewards! Make sure your time stamps are on too~

1 Screen Shot=5 million isk

2 Screen Shots=10 million isk

3 Screen Shots=15 million isk

4 Screen Shots=20 million isk

5 Screenshots (max)=25 million isk

This is a small supplementary contest we’ll be running on the side!

We hope to see many entrants to Dodge Bumper and look forward to many vidoes! If you’d like to donate isk to the contest as a reward payout, please contact us through proveldtariat@gmail.com for more assistance.

A new page on the website will be added as well to highlight more fleshed out rules AND provide a winners board for bragging rights! Keep your eyes peeled for this new and exciting game!

For the Proveldtariat! o7

 

P.S. And, of course, bumpers and pro-bumper miners need not apply. We will ensure thorough review of all entrants for bumpgeois sympathy and promotion before you can be eligible for the contest. 🙂

The Manifesto

It’s been a long time coming, and it will always be growing and learning as a living manifesto, but it’s here. The  Proveldtariat Manifesto  has been posted for the use of the working class of Eve, PvE’er, miner, missioner, and others of the Proveldtariat. Read it comrade. Read it and see the danger now infesting our home and game play. See the danger and raise the flag’s of war.

We’ve had a nice long sleep, haven’t we? But day has dawned. It’s time to wake up, brave Proveldtariat. We have intruders in our homes, and we must show them just how “welcome” they are.

Fly Safe, and Fly True Comrade o7

Apologies and Update! Bumper Tracker now Live!

Greetings Comrade o7

I first would like to apologize for my lack of updates yesterday. It was my turn to post, but the election had me a bit preoccupied! But now it’s back to business as usual; fighting the Bumpers and giving the Miners the tools to fight them!

As you may have noticed, there is now a new page on the left hand side. I’m happy to announce the new Bumper Tracker is live and will be updated as information is provided to us! For now, there are limitations as to what we can provide in terms of intel, but the more you help us, the more we can help the Proveldtariat safeguard the game play we are entitled to!

Rise up miners, missioners, high security citizens, and all walks of life of the Proveldtariat! Information is our greatest weapon!

For Liberty of Game!

For Freedom of Choice!

For the casuals, the PvEers, the miners, the missioners, the high sec citizen, and ALL Proveldtariats!
