I hope your guns are ready. Agent Anal Canal's Venture-Killing Contest for the month of August has gotten a lot of buzz in the EVE community. In addition to Anal Canal's PLEX prize, others, including Agents Capt Starfox and loyalanon, and the esteemed leader of The Marmite Collective, Tora Bushido, are throwing prizes into the mix.
Kudos to Anal Canal for having the creativity to come up with this newbie-friendly contest. Ventures take much less firepower to gank than other mining ships, so it's ideal for EVE players new to the game or new to ganking. It is often said that the New Order is one of the best organizations in EVE for new players, and this is further evidence.
Of course, there's more than one way to get a PLEX out of this contest...
You never know what a Venture might be carrying.
Good luck to all participants!
