Pandemic Horde Drops PAPI’s Fourth NPC Delve Keep Attempt

A fourth attempt to online a PAPI Keepstar in NPC Delve has started today. Pandemic Horde dropped the Keepstar in the system of 319-3D at approximately 1715 Eve time on October 15, 2020. This move sets the stage for another fight in 24 hours. There was an Imperium attempt to pause the timer with dreads and destroy the KS on the first-timer, but counter-drop titans were waiting. Therefore, the stage is set for the second 15 minute window. 

The Keepstar drop was spotted by Jdenny555 Rin  of Goonwaffe. For his efforts, he was rewarded with 25,000,000,000 ISK. Yes, 25B ISK from The Mittani himself. INN reached out to get Jdenny’s thoughts:

“I was just sitting in npc delve with a cyno alt for the past few days. . . . Anytime I was around my desktop I had my client open and was watching my local and overview. . . . Unfortunately my Mumble would not work until I restarted my computer twice. I only wish that wasn’t the case so we could’ve got more dreads in there faster.”

When asked about the bounty, Jdenny added, “I’m probably going to invest in doing more reactions and a super, although unfortunately I do not have the SuperTits skill requirements. . . . I am close though.”

A recent Keepstar fight on Oct. 6, 2020, broke records for the most concurrent players involved in EVE online history. The upcoming KS fight will take place on a Friday for those players in the EU timezone, meaning this next battle could easily surpass those Oct. 6 numbers and become a record-breaking battle. TEST alliance has yet to offer up its own Keepstar, and continues to rely on its allies to deploy and manage the most expensive aspect of these recent battles. Following the second part of the core update, this will be the first Keepstar drop that requires a Quantum Core to start the second timer. How that procedure will impact the fight we will soon learn.

Until then, talk to your friends and loved ones. Pre-order your selection of takeout food; load the fridge full of Red Bull or Monsters; stock up on coffee, tea or just plain water. This will be another long fight.

    Despite being the weakest and most ineffectual alliance in PAPI, TEST certainly is the loudest and most obnoxiously self-aggrandizing of the bunch. I just saw some TEST cringelord sperging on Reddit that IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN!!!11!1!1 – as though TEST had anything to do with it.

    Mist notes that TEST has yet to contribute a Keepstar to the whack-a-mole in NPC Delve, preferring to hide behind the skirts of of Noraus and Gobbins while bragging about PanFam’s accomplishments as though they were their own. Some things never change, and TEST is one of those things.

      It makes me wonder how long until PandaFam finally decides enough is enough and it’s time to finally deal with these coat-tail riding plebs. I’m sure FRAT is practically foaming at the mouth to finally strike back at them.

    • Motherfuck TEST: there’s no point in them deploying a Keepstar because literally nobody else would trust them enough to stage supers in one.

        Err Test deployed a KS mere hours before your comment. Normally this type of thing happens to me – heh. But the “trust” you refer to is still very much a valid point.

    I was one of the dreads that were sent to Valhalla. Seeing the titans dropped on my head stopped my heart for a second. It was a great thing to experience! Can’t wait for tomorrow!!!

    Seems like PAPI will have more of their big ships out sooner this time. Might finally have enough firepower to defend the keepstar.

      Imperium also has time to prepare, and they also have their own super caches to utilize + the ability to more easily replenish their forces remains. I wouldn’t place any bets on the outcome at this point. It could easily become costly beyond any of the battles before if both sides decide to go all in, though.
