Valhalla's Rising Anniversary

Hello all, the anniversary of our gaming community is going to be on August 25th and we have two events planned for the whole STO community to join our celebrations.

More events are scheduled for members of Valhalla's Rising fleet (FED) and Sto'Vo'Kor's Rising (KDF) so please check our webpage or the in-game calendars.

The PvP events consists of one ground and one space event. We have tried these in the past and they have always been a lot of fun. Everybody is welcome to compete for great prices, like a Tholian Recluse carrier, keypacks, ship modules, or a complete set of Tholian Warfare Doffs for your faction.

We hope to welcome you all for this day, and join our celebrations. Meeting point for all events is Drozana Station System. You can communicate with us through pm or by simply joining "Valhalla" open chat channel in game. A temporary password for our Teamspeak server will be posted here as well as in that channel on the day of the event.

We will start the pvp part of our celebration with a

  • The rest of the team is in equal parts composed of players that have scored either maximum damage or healing.
  • Final decision about challenge invites lies with the dragon's pilot.

3 Prize:
1 Tholian Recluse Carrier

Sign ups for both events close 1h before the official start of the matches. Please sign up in this thread. Link to google spreadsheets are going be live soon(tm).

At both events should we need to fill spots to provide all interested players a chance to compete. Our fleet officers will field the necessary additions from within their ranks.

Q: Won't feds be at an advantage at the Dragonslayer event because of the many shuttle options they have.
Y: Sadly that is true and not much we can do about it. Based on past experience, landing the killing shot adds enough of a random element to the game to make it worthwhile for klings to have a go at it..

Q: Won't KDF toons have an advantage at the Melee Tournament
Y: Yes, and since FEDs have one at the dragonslayer we decided that this one is fair trade off. Q'apla

Hope to see you all at the event, and good luck to all.
