First Annual Samwise Memorial Fluxhunt
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Alterion RazorsKiss, of squad FluxGuts, announces the First Annual Samwise Memorial Fluxhunt!
Pilot samwise, of squad New Dawn, was a wingmate of former New Dawn CAG RazorsKiss, and remains in #2 on the current all-time flux kills leaderboard (post-Catastrophe). He passed away on 116.11.28, but his love for fluxing competitions was well-known to his friends and squadmates. It is hoped that this event will be a fitting tribute and legacy to his steadfast defense against the Conflux, his example to us all as a pilot and friend, and to his legendary service record for New Dawn, Solrain, and TRI.
This competitive fluxhunting event will begin at 1200 Ekoo’s Standard Time on 118.1.26 – and end at 2400 EST on 118.2.3. Entries will be automatically selected from the Flux Kills rankings on JSR – and any interested pilot not on that list may submit a screen capture of their pilot page to enter, at or after 1200 EST on 118.1.26.
Recent Conflux incursions have threatened the Solrain/Quantar corridor, as well as the sole entry point to Hyperial space, at The Main Gate. As we often did with similar competitions sponsored by New Dawn, we’re combining competition with strategic goals. More pilots in space actively hunting Conflux means suppression on the trade lanes, more eyes in space, and more muscle to bring to bear on the enemy. In that vein – four requests, while we flux: 1) No swarms are to survive in TRI space for the duration of this contest! 2) Please ensure frequent patrols of the area between Bronci Rift and Hyperion Gate! 3) No infest or sentient activity should be ignored for mere drones! 4) Most importantly – all toasts we drink, we drink to the legendary samwise! Defender of the Barrier, Solrain Optimus, and holder of both the Foundation of the Trust AND the TRI Order of Merit! Long may his legacy last!
I appreciate your willingness, in advance.
