On the weekend of the 21/22 November 2015, EVE University will be taking part in the Tyrian Trophy II, a double elimination tournament arranged by RvB, with 5-man teams made up of pilots from all three involved corporations: EVE University, Red Federation and Blue Republic.

There are over 25 billion ISK in prizes already available, with more expected to be announced. There are no SP or pilot age requirements, and teams will be made up of both battle-hardened veterans and the newest of the new pilots fighting together.

You can find the full rules and sign-up threads on either the RvB forums here, or the E-UNI forums here.

EVE University vs Brave Newbies Event! Fun was had!

by on 2015.03.08, under Events, News

On Saturday 28th Feb, the two best-known Learning Corps in New Eden met up in low security space for a pre-arranged newbro battle!

On the day of the event, the Uni had over 80 ships in the travel fleet, many of them out on their first ever fleet! BNI fielded even more pilots for the fights and also provided a *protection* fleet to ensure no third parties spoiled our T1 fun (thanks for that, guys!), and fun it definitely was!

Here’s a screenshot of the beautiful E-Uni ‘blob’ at the staging system!

We fought several ’rounds’, reshipping quickly in between, popping a crazy amount of ships, and then held a free-for-all at the Sun before helping some folks who wanted to get home quick by ‘pod express’!

In my opinion, we all ‘won’ with this event, and the overwhelming opinion from those who took part was:
“10 out of 10 would do it again”!

Thanks Wilhelm Knicklicht (for the Uni) and Kira Tsukimoto (for Brave) for getting together to get this event set up, and thanks to everybody on both sides for making it possible,
with donations of ships, isk, help or by turning up to fight!

E-Uni are looking forward to the next time!

E-UNI Professor Seamus Donohue said, “I’ve been to Fanfest twice, and what I’ve enjoyed most are meeting Internet spaceship friends and discussing the future of EVE Online with CCP Developers. Also, I’m going to be teaching an EVE University lecture in the Serenity Hall on Saturday, May 3rd at 16:00.”

Professor Donohue’s lecture will cover “A Study of Geometry in EVE Online” and will explore the mechanics of various aspects of space in the game, including station docking ranges, grid characteristics and relative ship sizes and position. “Please don’t be late for class,” Donohue urges.

Other E-UNI members are also excited about attending. “Fanfest! It is like Christmas with your family,” said Bairfhionn Isu, E-UNI Retired Director. “The difference is that you actually care for the people at Fanfest.”

Neville Smit, Director of Education for EVE University, will appear in the Alliance Panel session, to be held on Friday, May 2nd at 19:00.

Fanfest includes three days of presentations and keynote addresses about the future of EVE Online, DUST 514 and the soon-to-be-released EVE Valkyrie games. It also features a lot of parties and celebrations for all of the participants, highlighted by the “Party on the Top of the World” event on Saturday night.

“I hate beer and even I love Fanfest,” says Kivena, E-UNI’s Teaching Manager, another returning attendee.

Almost 2,000 people are expected to attend Fanfest, to be held in the Harpa concert hall and conference center in Rekjavik. For those who can not attend in person, most of the Fanfest events will be streamed live over Twitch TV.
