Liveblog – 2nd Blood Raider Sotiyo Final Timer


Good afternoon and welcome to our coverage of the final timer of the Blood Raider Sotiyo Sotiyo in Z-M5A1 in Period Basis.
The Sotiyo was reinforced yesterday by Dream Fleet using a Nyx, 2 Hels and a Vendetta.

If you want to watch live, head over to INN Twitch where Shandragon is providing commentary and singing.

For those of you just waking up, or in the middle of the workday, I will try to keep you as updated on what, if anything, happens.

As of now, we have around 15 mins to go, there are around 90 in local Pandemic Horde have just turned up in the system in a fleet of interceptors and T1 frigates.

We will keep you updated as events unfold, but it is likely to be quiet for the next 15 minutes or so. All times are, as always, in UTC.

1227: 112 people in local, some TEST have also turned up

1230: The Sotiyo is now repairing, Blood Raider NPCs have undocked from the Sotiyo, PH have warped off grid

1235 TEST are now on grid, 12 minutes on repair timer, so far no one is attacking the Sotiyo

1240 165 in local, but, it looks like this could be a non-thing, 5 minutes on timer
1245 The Sotiyo Repaired, Dream Fleet (or anyone else) were no-shows, and TEST/PH just lurked on grid in interceptors.  Now it is back to being vulnerable until someone decides to reinforce it again.

The locals may decide to reinforce it again, and hope to not get noticed by streamers, or it may be left alone until it despawns. We will, as always, keep you updated on any developments as they happen. Thanks to Shandragon as well, for keeping us entertained during the timer.

    Wow what a super exciting event for all involved, dare I say titanic. This truly is the pinnacle of PvE in Eve and is all that was promised and alluded to.

    The real question here though is how long are CCP going to let this nonsense go on for given that it has to be a simple fix.

    Anyway thank you Rhivre and Shandragon for taking one for the team.

      It still amazes me that they thought that someone warping in in an interceptor and stealing the loot as a great game mechanic. Should be anti interceptor field, as soon as they show up on grid they get DDed. That would be fun as hell 😀

        In this case as in many others, “amazing” is fruit of the difference between competent design and the CCP way.

      Man oh man, and I just chose to watch Paint Drying Channel instead of this! My remorse is almost unbearable now!

    • You mean nobody wants to spend hours fucking around in speedtanking frigates for no financial gain? I’m shocked.
