Kill the new battle cruisers!!

What do points make? PRIZES!
Red Vegas should be proud. With the new tier-3 battle cruisers hitting the markets, Vegas wanted to inject some fun and excitement into the month and he came up with an idea. Here's his post from our forums (shameless content padding I know!!):

Fellow Pirates and Bastards!
I have a contest for you this December to break in the Crucible Winter Expansion. After talking with Flash I have kept the contest sweet and simple.

Kill as many Tier 3 Battlecruisers as you can get your turrets on. You must be involved in the most solo/fleet killmails of the new Tier 3 Battlecruisers. That's it, your prize will be a Tier 3 Battlecruiser of your choice

One hull of any race!

You will also receive a medal for your hard work and dedication from The Bastards corporation.

Now, I actually took receipt of a new Tornado class battle cruiser a few days ago and fitted it with T2 800mm repeating artillery pieces but am a tad worried about losing it. I saw how these things can melt oh-so quickly under concentrated fire. In any fleet we come up, these things will be primary. Other fleets we meet up will probably do the same thing. I wonder if one can make a bait tier-3 battle cruiser?

Anyway, we had a tremendous amount of fun last night bagging another two more such battle cruisers along with a handful of battle ships. Give and take during the evening for sure but that is the fun of New Eden right now, the new upgrades certainly have given pilots a shot in the arm. Am in the process of writing it up last night's fun and will update the blog soon with new content.
