UPDATE 2:
Looks like the Idris might be steal-able after all.


UPDATE:
TRAGIC NEWS!

View: https://youtu.be/6RylJpU_qJ4?t=2647

The UEE Patrol Idris in 3.12 will not be able to be taken over.
CIG is faking the Idris, it will have no internals for 3.12.
An investigation should be made, however, to see if there is a cockpit chair with NPC.

Guilded Calendar Event:
https://www.guilded.gg/TEST/groups/k2dX2b3K/channels/7e9b1450-a8c0-49e1-ba21-441ad4d0baa0/calendar/3323621

Come 3.12 Operation Borrow an Idris is a go.
Operation Borrow an Idris will be our attempt to borrow an extra patrol Idris off of the UEE's hands.
They have enough Idris, they won't mind us borrowing one.

Having the following contributed to the operation will help:

  • Two more 890js
  • Two more Carracks
  • One to Two Vanguard Sentinels
  • Two hammerheads with all disruptors
  • Two M50s
  • 11 additional pilots
  • 4 to 8 Hammerhead Turret gunners
  • One to two Crime stat 5 pirates just in case they will be needed to spawn the Idris
  • two to four brave souls in EVA with Railguns\Missile Launchers\Grenade Launchers and lots of ammo, Strike Team Beta
  • A couple of screen recorder or streamers

I will be contributing
  • Two 890js
  • One Carrack
  • One Vanguard Sentinel
  • Six Ravens
  • One M50

Operation parameters and play
(parameters subject to change)

Spawn and meetup location: GrimHEX or nearest large ship spawn location to the Idris

We will be attempting to immobilize the Idris without heavily damaging it, and attempt to get inside the control cockpit and take control of the ship.

The 890js and Carracks will flank and match speed with the Idris outside of EMP range, pilots may have to get comfortable flying in expanded (F4 and + on the number pad) 3rd person view.

The Ravens and Sentinels will fly below and above the Idris and coordinate an EMP blast to disable the Idris movement and shields.

If this does not work, both Hammerheads fitted with all shield disruptors will move into position and disable the Idris shields

If Idris does not stop moving after EMP and shields down, the 890Js and Carracks will overclock their shields and immobilize the Idris with a big ship group hug.

When given the go, one of the three M50 pilots (Strike Team Alpha) will go full throttle and try to phase through either the backside of the control cockpit or through one of the doors if CIG finished the internals of the Idris.
Once phased through M50 pilot will eject and take control of the ship. We have three or more M50 pilots for multiple chances in case one or more M50s explodes instead of phasing through. You will have set your respawn to one of the Carracks or 890js so your sacrifice will not be permanent. Have no fear!

If this fails but it appears internals are in the ship to travel to the cockpit, Strike Team Beta will launch after confirmation shields are still down.
Strike Team Beta will gain access to the Idris and take control.

If Idris has internals, we will all board the Idris once one of the Strike teams take control.

We will then take photos and videos of our triumph...
And then the shenanigans will begin!

This idea is simply nuts, i love it :)

I can contribute 1 Carrack, 1 Sentinel and 4 Warlocks, 1 Hammerhead which i can fit with full Salvation Distortion scatterguns.
Awesome! That would be most helpful!


Id love to participate! The only relevant ship i have is the retaliator bomber
Yes, we need pilots and brave souls!

I would go but my computer is not up to snuff to handle SC atm....
Dang, well soon I hope?!

Sounds very cool! I can come and be a bullet/missile sponge!
YAS! We need bodies

This sounds fucking awesome! I haven't really played since the beginning of time, but I have a Carrack and a Sentinel.

I can also just be a pilot, or a grunt, or EVA fodder, whatever.
Definitely could use a sentinel and carrack, hope to see you there!

I will try but not sure as ill be out of town for the holidays probably not back till the 28th

But as long as we don't get in-game ship wipe I can contribute all but 890

if we do get a wipe I have: 1 Carrack, 1 HH
I'll try to help capture some cool footage and hopefully, others will stream or captures so incase you don't make it you can see how it turned out.
Would be awesome if we figure out a way to consistently get control of an Idris.

Mark my name!
I'm happy to volunteer for the role of the mosquito splashed into the Idris windshield!
BTW I'll suggest to add a boarding ship for the Beta Team, like a Prowler or a Cutlass Black to quickly die move to the Idris in case of boarding operation

Count me in

I have a Carrack, and other ships that don't immediately spring to mind, otherwise I can absorb bullets with the best of them.

Awesome! thank you both for joining the event on Guilded and answering the tiny questionnaire!

December 26th 😢
This year we have a different Christmas schedule, 3 brothers, 24th the oldest, 25th the youngest, 26th we celebrate Christmas with grandmother and grandfather.
Oh man, that is great! For me, it is going to be another holiday with just my immediate household.

woohoo I'm in! Just need the date so I can reserve. The calendar link didn't work for me.
Whatever ship is missing I will contribute.

This is absolute insanity, I am in!

Have and 890 and/or Hammerhead to add to this craziness if needed!
Hi Sayora, glad to have you join us!

Why stop at just one Idris, surely if we can 'borrow' one we can 'borrow' several?
I have no idea if a server will be limited to only one patrol Idris, but if possible to get the server spawn more than one Idris, that would be epic!
We could do our own Gamescom 2017 Idris v Idris battles!
